Uk Thing and.. UK things? (Ebay)

Previous Entry Uk Thing and.. UK things? (Ebay) Jan. 20th, 2009 @ 03:29 pm Next Entry
So... I want to go to the UK Thing this year too, but I haven't made plans of anything yet... How much long do you think I have before it's too late?

I don't how much tourism I can do while I'm there... Maybe the zoo and the toy museum that was closed last time? I do want to be there a full day before the Thing, so I have to find things to do while I'm there...

While I won't get a table, I think I might print one of my short stories and hand it out to friends? But which one to print? The first Sweet Tooth?


And speaking of UK things, I should be starting some Ebay auctions soon, mostly of item from the UK, I thought I should give you guys a chance to grab some of them, before I put them on Ebay?

I'm selling most of Terry Pratchett books, not because I don't like them but because most of them on Audible, and I need the space...

I have a few games: Final Fantasy Tactics (PSP), Dynasty Warriors DS, Simcity DS

Scott Pilgrim 4, a duplicate I don't really need....

I have more things, but I have to sort which are in English or not, and how much I'll sell them for, which should be 50% of the original price unless it's very common, or very rare... I'll try to make a list if anybody is interested...

Last years things fell on the easter weekend but this years is a holiday free weekend so you should find more things open and a few less crowds then last year.

Yeah, that almost ruined my trip... that and the snow!

Do you have any suggestions? And will you do another meet up after the Thing like last year! :3

have you done the bus tour around london? I wouldn't rec them in most cities but I found the one in London actually pretty good and handy for narrowing down what to go see. It also depends on what your interested, I love history esp the Tudor period so loved the tower of London but it was bit expensive [thou if sterling stays at the current rate not as expensive as before]. The London Dungeon I also really love, wasn't too impressed with the zoo.

How are the rides on the London Dungeon? With my weak stomach, I can't handle roller coasters... Not that I like them anyway... XP

I like zoos, the one in Central Park was tiny, yet I still loved it!

Hmm, I like museums, but I visited most of them last year...

Do you think I can get my tickets and such in the beginning of February? Or would it be too late?

Sorry if I'm asking too many questions... ^_^;

there are no rides per say in the London Dungeon, you walk through and there's staff in character at various points acting out scenes and interacting with you - it manages to be educational and entertaining without being cheesy or at least I felt it did.

Get tickets for what? the zoo?

There is a hanging at the end (or was in August when I went).

Basically they lift you 40 feet or so and drop you :D

But it's optional right?
