This week isn't going very well.... London attractions for geeks?


Previous Entry This week isn't going very well.... London attractions for geeks? Jan. 17th, 2008 @ 06:14 am Next Entry
Last week I managed to do everything I wanted and more! This week... not as much...

I had too much work on Monday and Tuesday to do anything at home, and I was kinda sick yesterday.... And Zack & Wiki is out today... ^_^;

And... something is wrong with my power supply, it's having trouble starting up, but doesn't fail after starting, I assume I should replace it soon.  :(

I'm going to try to to plan my stay in London for the UK thing instead of trying to get anything done for the site...

I still have no idea how long I'll stay, I want to either see Spam-A-Lot or Avenue Q, but I won't stay an extra day just to see both, so I'll have to choose.... Which would you pick?

I know there is a toy museum I could visit, and there is a indie comic store that everybody talks about... and I can't remember it's name... I think it had either Tintin or Calvin and Hobbes outside?

But that's about it... I don't know what else I could do while there.... Any suggestions? I've already seen a few of the major attractions....

I saw Spamalot when we were in London last year. It was cute but kinda too much like a play version of a movie I knew too well. But for some people that's a very good thing!
I personally loved Avenue Q WAY more. But I saw it in NY. And love puppets!!
But I also thought the songs were way more original.

I guess original songs does sound better than a play of a movie that I've seen! ^_^;

If I were in your shoes...

The HMS Belfast WW2 cruiser, which was seen very briefly in the broomstick sequence at the beginning of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix...

The Transport Museum and Portobello Road, as mentioned in William Gibson's Mona Lisa Overdrive...

Elstree (/Shepperton?) Studios. Dunno if they have tours, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

The College of Arms. I'm a commoner, of course, but wouldn't mind seeing the home of the Heralds.

I'd watch Spam-A-Lot in London and save Avenue Q for an American holiday. :) But that's just me.

They'd actual let people inside the battlecruiser? :O
That would be awesome!
I'll look these up! :3

Apparently Avenue Q is on Broadway and on tour in the US, but I don't know if I'll ever be anywhere close the shows if I went to the US..^_^;

You're thinking of Gosh! Comics. It's RIGHT across the street from the British Museum, and yes, it's got a Calvin on the outside!

Another vote for Avenue QQQQQQQQ. It's so good.

YES! That's the name of the store! Since it's close the museum I might as well go there too! :3

And if I only have time for one show, I'm positive it will be Avenue Q! :3
