Trains suck...

So Chris tried to go home this evening, from London to Leamington. Sounds like a fairly easy journey by train - apparently not this weekend. He has since come back here... here follows his rant about what happened;

Lia tells me her Gran reads this, so I'm not allowed to swear. Therefore, I have decided to substitute expletives with the names of seventies, eighties and nineties rock and pop divas. Long and boring story short, I asked t'internet how to get home and it told me to go from Paddington>Reading>Leamington. Simple enough, however the Cyndi Laupering connecting train to Reading was late and so I missed the last Bonnie Tyler train to Birmingham. Cue me returning to east London on a night when only about 5 tube lines were working. About £30 all told - to get a numb arse and bored Alison Moyet-less - might as well have gone to see one of the more West-End shows. The railways are a big steaming heap of Donna Summer.

Poor Chris isn't very happy - a picture will illustrate this:

Apart from that, the week has been both fantastic and rubbish; My purse went missing on Sunday night somewhere between the pub and getting home, so Monday and Tuesday were spent sorting out replacing my debit card (after changing my address so they had my current one rather than my old Leamington one...), reporting the purse and all its contents lost to the police, etc. Grrr. This is my angry/upset/grumpy old woman/in need of senekot face:

However, Most of the rest of the week has been GREAT because we have seen the following shows (with comments in brackets):

  • Sunday in the Park with George - Wyndhams Theatre (AMAZING - we cried like little gay boys with skinned knees - if you see one show in your whole life, see this!!!)
  • Guys and Dolls - Piccadilly Theatre (fun and a nice trip down memory lane since Chris, Dan and I were all in it two years ago)
  • Chèlinot - Union Theatre (the world premiere of Dan and Mike's new musical - very very good)
  • Avenue Q - Noel Coward Theatre (Chris and Dan only since I saw it in June - we're all obsessed with it anyway - it's awesome!)
  • The Producers - Theatre Royal, Drury Lane (Fabulous fun, extremely silly, and with the wonderful Reese Shearsmith as Bloom - he's great!!)

So much in fun in one week, we nearly exploded! Plus during the day we've been seeing friends for lunches, and watching rubbish TV channels such as Price Drop TV (and pretending to be presenters on it!) and drinking copious amounts of wine in the evenings, which sometimes result in antics such as these:

It's all been very silly and good fun :)

  • Informative details on history of viagra confirm that the anti-impotency drug Viagra was actually developed by researchers with the purpose of curing angina but incidentally during clinical trails, the drug was found effective in treating erectile dysfunction in men. With clinical results demonstrating the powerful effects of Viagra in triggering off erections necessary for sexual intercourse,impotency afflicted worldwide opted for the medication and the viagra phenomenon also offered suitable assistance to them in countering erectile dysfunction. Slowly and gradually Viagra has developed a deepest level of relationship with men which has further led to an indelible association between viagra and sexuality. And right now viagra and erectile dysfunction related tidbits are popular throughout the world and erectile dysfunction afflicted men worldwide are administering Viagra under medical supervision.

  • Generic Viagra is a prescription drug that takes care of the physical dilemma of erectile dysfunction in men. Sildenafil citrate is the major component of generic viagra pills that dilates the arteries in the penis and allows filling of blood in small spaces of penis that hardens and gets erect.

  • Generic Cialis is used to increase blood flow to certain areas of the body, as a muscle relaxant and as a male impotence or erectile dysfunction treatment.

  • Generic Cialis is slightly different from the other erectile drugs available in the market as it may work up to 36 hrs after dosing. Generic Levitra orks along with sexual stimulation to help achieve an erection when taken 30 to 60 minutes before sexual activity.
