Nous sommes chez nous - enfin!

And what is waiting for me in my in-box? Masses of junk mail offering viagra. I got more offers for viagra in my in-box than I did real mail during my time in France. It's little wonder I've written Viagra Spam into chapter 9 of Family.

Off for a long soak in the bath - the first in over 12 weeks. Then to open all the snail mail that's piled up. chenanceou - would you believe it, all your postcards arrived just after I'd left for France, back in April. I've just found them at the bottom of the box that our house-sitter fills when the postman calls.

calove I just have to catch up on your news from the Con. Did you get any autographs? Talk to anyone interesting? What's all this I heard about character assassination?.
22nd-Jul-2004 01:49 pm (UTC)
Yay! I had given up on them totally by now.

I'm happy to see you made it home all in one piece :) I can't tell you how much I enjoyed your trip. It was so cool to read it, so... Thank you. A big one.
23rd-Jul-2004 07:54 am (UTC)
I'm glad you enjoyed my trip. I did too, for the most part. I'll put up the concluding week's log and photos over the next couple of days.

22nd-Jul-2004 02:00 pm (UTC)
Still think you went to Bournemouth.
23rd-Jul-2004 07:52 am (UTC)
*blows raspberry*

You watch it, girl, I have your nougat in my hands right this moment and am in need of another sugar fix.

If MWNN ever finds my car insurance so's I can tax the car, I should be able to meet you for lunch the weekend he's in Ireland.
23rd-Jul-2004 08:01 am (UTC)
Okay, when's that? So I can pencil it into my full to bursting diary. :::cough:::
23rd-Jul-2004 08:18 am (UTC)
7th and 8th of August. (He's away 3rd-10th) Let's find somewhere really nice, about midway, shall we, as I won't have a chauffeur to allow any alcohol to be consumed so the pub's out of the equation.

Got your beta work for chapter 9. Thanks muchly. It is a bit all over the place, isn't it? That's what comes of not having access to internet support while writing it. Still, I had the idea for overcoming all the Jossing that had happened with Connor's reappearance in the show, and just had to get it down before I forgot it all.
23rd-Jul-2004 08:51 am (UTC)
There's nothing too wrong with it, it's just you haven't followed on from the next chapter. It might be an idea to send it back to me after you've re-worked it.

I do have an autograph for you - not ASH sadly, but hopefully James will do. I'll pop it in the post as soon as.

The con was... erm... an experience. I honestly don't think I'll ever repeat it, but, you know, one of those things you just have to do. But I got me my photo with julchek and gamiila and James (and he had his hand on my waist... and it was all warm... and I had my hand on his thigh... but naturally I removed it as soon as I realised what it was up to and held on to it so it wouldn't do it again...) If you are keen to see the post-con ramblings you can take a look here, and there's a photo here. And he signed a picture that my seven-year-old drew of Spike and was very sweet about it, too.

Talk to anyone interesting other than Jules and gamiila? Well, they were more than interesting enough! Met some very nice people, but also some seriously strange, seriously delusional and seriously large people ::sheesh::

Character assassination? Loads of it. All pretty silly and largely by people who really need to get a life.

But, glad you're back! Missed you. Big question though - are you glad to be back?
23rd-Jul-2004 07:47 am (UTC)
Glad to be back? Yes. Much as I love the life afloat, there's nothing like deprivation of the luxuries of modern living to make you appreciate them all the more.

Looking forward to the autograph. The pic of you and the girls with James is really lovely btw. Which is you, which is Jules and which is Gamilla? And who's the poser in between you all? *snigger*

Do I take it that the character assassination was between fans and not the cast and crew? If so, phew!. I thought Mr Squeaky clean corporate man, James had dirtied his bib somehow.

Which is you, which is Jules and which is Gamilla?

I'm the one on the left, wearing cream (on reflection a mistake...), Jules is the one with the lovely big grin and the hand on his shoulder and G is the one with the "no big" smile and the too large trousers... The berk in the middle insisted on being in everyone's photos. Don't know who the heck he thought he was.

Nah - although he did express the wish to chop off George W's hands and leave him to bleed to death in the desert and see if any passing Iraqi expressed the desire to save him. A somewhat radical view, even for an American, I think. He also got legless on JD before the GotR concert (drowning nerves, from what I gather) and was totally OTT on stage - much tartiness and snogging of fans. Have to say it was all bloody hilarious, but others either found it:
a)highly offensive and he really should know better and who on earth does he think he is and he's nothing but white trailer trash... or
b) so terribly, terribly sad and the poor, poor man clearly has a problem and needs lots of TLC (imply - from me)

He got drunk. He was an amusing arse. Deal. There were also rumours from the helpers who heard stories from the security men about backstage tantrums yada yada... There were a lot of people there who need to get a life. Possibly including James.

All I can say is - he was all sweetness and light and a totally amusing tart when I had dealings with him. And he's not Spike.

Welcome back - hope you are well and in one piece. I don't envy you having to open all those thousands of letters - we couldn't believe how many there were - I am still opening mine - such a boring chore and nothing interesting - all bills. Returned to work on Wednesday - now need another holiday!!! Will email you when I am at my home computer on Tuesday. Lots of love J & L.
23rd-Jul-2004 07:49 am (UTC)
Ta ever so for the welcome home. Boy have I a bone to pick woth you - you left far too much with Enza. (But I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves, chez nous.)

23rd-Jul-2004 01:21 am (UTC)
Welcome back! See you next month :-)
23rd-Jul-2004 07:50 am (UTC)
Looking forward to it. (That's if MWNN finds my car insurance and I get it taxed before then.)
26th-Jul-2004 02:53 am (UTC)
Welcome home - just sent you an email.

Have all the Angel eps if you still want them.
26th-Jul-2004 04:30 am (UTC) - Many thanks
I would drive over this week to see you and borrow the final ep. but there is a problem with the car tax (MWNN, for reasons known only to him, had the insurance sent to Kate. She is AWAL at a wedding somewhere and the the RAC have said it will take 5 working days and £15 to get a replacement document to us. I will not be mobile until at least the weeken (if then) and MWNN is organising his car tax (which for some unknown reason, like his documents were buried under an avalanche of snail mail, didn't get taxed for jennylyle's visit. He's got a few appointments this week which means I won't have the use of his car either.

26th-Jul-2004 07:52 am (UTC) - Re: Many thanks
I'm sure we can sort something out. Why not give me a ring later?
26th-Jul-2004 07:56 am (UTC) - Hello
Harry here. Mummy told me to post because she said you may not know I have a journal. I add you as friend :)

Hope to see you soon. I grow so much since last time!
26th-Jul-2004 10:44 am (UTC) - Re: Hello
I did know you had your very own journal and I added you as my friend a long time ago.

I hope to see you soon, too. Mummy and I will talk on the phone and I will try to come over before you go off on your holiday with mummy and daddy.
26th-Jul-2004 03:32 pm (UTC) - Re: Hello
Strange. You aren't listed as a friend.
