MCM Comic Con

Posted on

I’m having a break from the cruise stuff to bring you news of my recent shenanigans. Myself and my niece attended MCM for the first time on Saturday (25th May) and we couldn’t believe how crazy it was. Being used to Showmasters events I was unaware of the scale of MCM… it was massive and there were so many people you could barely move; and that was after two hours of queuing to get in. I didn’t go to see anyone in particular but I took my niece along to meet some of her favourite YouTubers at Vidfest, an apparently new addition to the event.

You would never feel silly cosplaying at this event because most people do. In fact you would probably feel silly if you weren’t taking part in some sort of cosplay. Anyway while I was there I met a YouTuber called Chris Kendall whose videos my niece introduced me to about a month ago. I told him how awesome his animal impression video was and he said he was thinking of making another one. I do hope so because this made me laugh.

Here’s a few photos I took on the day

Random Days are the Best!

Posted on

Hello there Blog masters! thought I would check in and tell you a little about how my Easter weekend has been so far! Firstly I’d like to thank Jesus for the four days off work… its much appreciated! I’m currently listening to the awesome new Lostprophets album which has been long-awaited. It’s good to have them back on the scene and I can’t wait to see them perform again next month.

I’m eagerly getting through the second season of the Vampire Diaries but I don’t want to come to the end of it. I just can’t get enough of Damon Salvatore ๐Ÿ™‚ the story lines are as exciting as ever and the intensity quite often leaves me holding my breath. Elena quite clearly needs to get it on with Damon… we all love a bad boy!

My holiday wardrobe is almost complete. A major shopfest on Friday turned out to be successful although I did start off by thinking that it was going to be a pointless trip… maybe I should think like that every time I go shopping as when I go feeling optimistic I often can’t find anything I want. Just a few more things to get now and then I’m done.

I’m loving the early birthday present that my mum presented me with. Although my birthday isn’t for another couple of months I wasn’t going to complain. I can honestly say that the geek in me truly came out when I clapped eyes on my new Marvel bag. I can now carry my London Film and Comic con photo shoot pictures around with me in style in July.

Yesterday was quite random. Myself and my friend Mandy decided to go for lunch and to see a film in good old London town but we only managed to do the lunch part. The rest of the day/night turned into a kind of pub crawl instead. We started off at the Intrepid Fox, a rock/metal bar that played anything from Wednesday 13 to Evanescence. Then moved onto a small bar called the Crobar in Soho which seemed a little more hardcore and played a lot of heavy metal. Both bars I felt comfortable in, it was my kind of thing. I might actually review them at a later date. After that we went for a drink in the Sussex, had an expensive cocktail in Detroit and ended the evening in the Spice of Life. ย Then feeling a little peckish I stopped in Subway to get a veggie patty before heading home completely sober ๐Ÿ™‚ The best days are the random unplanned ones.
