TOPIC: What are you doing for fun?

Re: What are you doing for fun? 11 years 9 months ago #13

That stuff does look neat. We make things here out of sheep's wool and cashmere. We've been sledding lately since it's a rare occasion where we have adequate snow. Calvin (our diminutive bard) has a part in community theater for the next three weekends. We've all had cold this week so I'm just not up to political commentary right now. You know if there weren't so many liberals here I wouldn't even bother, but I can't leave it all to Henwy to stir the pot.

<br />Dazzy, whenever I see your steampunk stuff, I want to go buy old watches and tear into them.  Unfortunately I'd just end up with a pile of cool looking gears and innards, and a disgruntled hubby.  <br /><br />Anyone here been to England?  I'm starting to plan a trip for our 25th anniversary, probably going in June/July.  I love bargain shopping, the victorian era, and castles, Tom's into anything WWII.  Any tips would be appreciated!<br />

Awh thanks sweetie. :)<br />I have fun playing with this stuff. If you ever want some watch pieces to play with let me know and I'd be glad to send some things your way. :)<br />

DD, totally cool stuff.  You are so creative.<br /><br />I've been to England, but it was in 1972.  Chances are what I saw might have changed.  The architecure (sp?...gaah needs spell check!) was fantastic.  Go see the art work.  Pictures don't show how awesome some of them are.<br /><br /><br />..... and Dis Bee Leaf, ROFL.  Too funny.  :lol:<br />

We spent Christmas 2004 in London and spent that week touring the countryside. Among other things, we went to Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, a variety of cathedrals in the countryside like Winchester notably (the tombs under the old churches are the best), got to a few castles that were opened in the winter, and of course the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey (both too crowded) as well as a host of museums. The Rosetta Stone was cool but I had to elbow through the crowd to see it. We also saw a play and shopped Picadilly Circus and the surrounding area. I expect we will go again some day. The  major things I would do differently the second time are to (1) go in the summer when all of the castles are open; (2) do your homework - read the guides and figure out what you want to see before you go (the travel times are deceptively long in the countryside and there is no automobile travel in London; (3) check out some of the more obscure targets like Darwin's house - we missed it but it's supposed to be good.

Playing way too much Fallout 3 and loving it.  Oh, and painting a bunch of minis for warmachine/hordes.

I'm supposed to go out today and buy a headset so I can communicate with my guild wars guild. I'm not sure it's the greatest idea in the world. I swore off multimedia online ages back when I got my first webcam free from earthlink. I signed up for microsoft netmeeting and thought it would be spiffy to video chat with people. All that ended up happening is random guys would send me video of their weewee's. After the third one I quit and i've never used video or voice chat since.

Good. Good. headsets, bluetooth equipment and facial tissues. Everyone, even Brian is actively working to support the economy.

Thanks for the advice, DBL.  Was Stonehenge worth the trip?  I understand you can't get anywhere near the stones.  And just what is Piccadilly Circus?  Like a flea market, or just a tourist-trap-shopping-center?  I anticipate that we'll just stay in London, no car, get used to the Tube and maybe mass-market day trips like to Windsor Castle.  I'd like to find a 'boot sale', their version of a flea market, with 'boot' referring to the trunk of the car.  <br />
