What the hell??

This is NOT my avatar. If LJ is trying to tell me I look like a dragon, I am not amused.

Mirror Mirror

I want this mirror from Pier 1.



Except, it's $150 and I don't know how big it is. It doesn't say on their site! I mean if it's at least 2 feet I might be able to justify it but if it's the size of a coaster then no...

I'll just have to stop on my way home.

New York Snowstorm

mood: happyhappy

Enroute to London via New York, I saw this in an airport giftshop and wanted it for my NYC themed bedroom.



Of course I asked myself, who wants to babysit a snowglobe through a week and three more airports? So I sighed and put it back on its shelf. But I just found it online for $2.50 +shipping!

Chances of June blizzards likely...

Stratford

June 2nd, 2008 | 04:46 pm
location: london, england

I saw Rufus Sewell in Stratford this afternoon!

I was walking down the street just past the RSC Theatre and I happened to look up from the sidewalk and there he was just opposite walking towards me. We exchanged glances and I'm pretty sure my eyes bugged out as it registered who he was. Of course I didn't say anything, just had a little "oh my God!" moment and told my parents who were like, "who?!" I listed off some movies he's been in but they had no idea. It's so funny though because as we're in the car driving back toward London my dad starts rattling on about the movie Cold Comfort Farm...which I've never seen, but it turns out he's in it! So I have to tell my dad. Maybe he'll care now. lol

I thought maybe he was in one of the productions there but looked through the programs for the current plays and I didn't see his name in any of them, so I don't know what he was up to. After that I was bracing myself waiting for Kenneth Branagh to walk around a corner or something! Crazy.
