I'll Always Come Back to Who

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 11, 2012, 10:40 PM
I am so happy right now!  I had a nearly perfect day - and I just had to share it with all of you, even though I promised no more blogging for awhile.

The pastry & tea shop was amazing!!  :squee:  It was more a full-blown restaurant than I had anticipated from their website.

My lunch was a steak & mushroom pie with chips!  Delicious!  I will definitely be going there again.

I had this great moment where I was eating my pie & chips, while reading Sherlock adventures on my Kindle, drinking amazing tea, and a Mini-Cooper drove by.  :D
Sidebar: Why is British tea so much better?!  Is it just a quality thing?  I could drink a pot of that stuff every day.

As you can tell, I fell in love with the place.  There was also a little shop attached where you could buy biscuits or tea usually only found in Britain -- so hard not to over spend.  And there was a pub next door, which I'll check out next time.

I also spent several hours with my oldest friends -- books.  I went to a couple different book stores, and I did buy a few Doctor Who items.  The technical manual was published in 1983.  I'm thinking if I hold onto it for awhile, it might even be worth something.  (And now I have my own sonic screwdriver!! :la:)

I also found this dress at a thrift store that I want to alter for a TARDIS cosplay  :hooray:

It looks black because of the lighting in my room - but it is a navy blue (so more of a Classic TARDIS color).  Of course, I will need someone far more clever than myself to help with the actual sewing... but I'm sure it will be fantastic.  I see so much potential in this dress!

I also got a haircut and now I feel all fluffy & pretty!  Now I'm just watching more Sherlock and playing on Tumblr.  Ah - contentment.

That is cool! Man, I wish our British pub didn't go out of business out here... o_o They had some amazing food.

In Doctor Who related news, I'm going to the Gallifrey One convention in LA. XD Any other Doctor Who fans going?

I plan on going back for sure. Quite tasty food. And the tea is so much better than the American variety.

Oh. My. Gallifrey! I wish I could go to Gallifrey One! Soon I will live in LA and probably go every year!

This'll be my first year. I'm super excited. This year they're going to have the Eighth Doctor AND his TARDIS display for pictures!
