My life goes on in endless song

Got awoken early this morning by the incessant ringing of the telephone. Since I went out and had a few drinks last night, I answered it groggily. New York. A UN intern, been given this number by one of my NYC friends. Said she'd be coming over to The Hague this week to attend some sort of conference, and if she could sleep on my sofa? It would only be until Thursday...She sounded slightly embarrassed and apologetic about it -she assured me that I would hardly know she was there!-, but I know what it's like to be a UN volunteer and have more ideals than cash, so I said yes. Been spending the morning cleaning the flat, now all I need to do is stock up on the groceries, and get the laundry done. She'll be arriving tomorrow and I don't want the first thing she sees be my tatty nightshirts drying in the hall because it's f*cking raining outside.

And, putting the final touches to my plans for next week, I've booked myself into a hotel in the immediate vicinity of The Troubadour, with an overall rating of: poor. Can't wait to see what that means ;-)!

A Saturday post? Does that mean you bought a computer or are you in an Internet cafe?

Your Saturday mornign strangely resembles mine, especially regarding the giant amounts of laundry (because I have no time durign the week and wash for five poeple...). Rain? Intermittent. Autumn blues? Check.

Will we ever convene on the couch with tea and cookies again or is that over now the fandom is ending?

I've got less than 3 minutes left here, so -- will we ever convene on the couch with tea and cookies again? God, I hope so! Just as soon as I get back from my tour of England, OK?

Do you know how much my share of the hotel will be? Just so I know how much cash to bring

Not a clue. What were those Travelodge prices when we were looking into booking ourselves into the other one, £55 and up? Divided by three or four, it shouldn't be exorbitant.

Cool. Are we gonna have time to get changed before the gig? Just so I know what to wear when I get on the train

Oh, bags of time! You were going to arrive around 4pm, weren't you? roissy0 was going to do her best to meet us at the hotel then, and the party doesn't start until 7:30 I believe. No idea what time the band will go on stage, but we should have ample time to get changed at least!

Cool :)

I've exchanged mobile numbers with Cass so I can let her know if there are any delays with the trains and stuff. Hopefully everything should be ok

Long enough for me to get really jittery -- what to bring, what to wear?

Hehe. I think I've gone past the jittery stage to that weird calm feeling. I'm sure I'll go back to being a wreck on Saturday ;)
