Seer of ghosts & weaver of stories

Belated update, etc.
I've been doing a lot of nothing, except for reading, writing, and running around London since submitting my PhD thesis. I have a job interview today at a GP's office just a few rail stops from here (it's for a part-time receptionist post). Life is quieter than usual, broadly speaking, and I don't think that's a bad thing. I'm working on a short story and submitting lots of poetry (annoying, that when I'm neck-deep in prose these days, my poetry production goes down).

Further to Frankenstein at the National Theatre, there's a Q&A on Wednesday night with Danny Boyle, Nick Dear, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Jonny Lee Miller. I'll be reviewing that, too, seeing as I reviewed both versions of the play.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! Hopefully, everyone will recognise your brilliance!

I got the job! *hugs* We've both had good luck on that front, it looks like.

hope the job interview goes well/went well, and that that Q&A is suitably splendid!

I got the job - started this afternoon :)

*sends all talismans your way for job progress :)

*hums with envy at your attendance at the Q&A. GAH. Can't wait to hear all about it! :)

I did get the job, so good news there :)

I'll be writing up my review tomorrow.

Good luck with the interview. I hope it goes well and you don't have to work so we can do that cool thing of sharing a cab. Easy way to get to know you, LOL. Srsly, though, I hope you can get find.

Was your stage-door mission successful?

Saw it via live-feed cinema the other day, with JLM as Creature and BC as Victor. Brilliant!

how did the interview go? and do you fancy trying this "meet up" thing again at some point? :)

I got the job :) And yes, I would like to. It would have to happen on a Saturday or Sunday (the meet-up).


Good luck with everything! I'll keep my fingers crossed!

And enjoy your Q&A. :)

Q&A was excellent; I'll be writing a review tomorrow when I'm coherent.

I hope your interview was successful. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you :)

You are going to the Frankenstein Q&A? Me too! I nearly had a seizure when I received the tickets because I was so convinced they would sell out. (I saw the play 2 weeks back, both the guys as both roles, and I honestly cannot find words how how superb I thought it was.)

Indeed :) I'm amazed that event didn't sell out, too; I think the late hour has something to do with it. I'll look forward to meeting you on Wednesday, if you're amenable!

I'll look forward to meeting you on Wednesday, if you're amenable!

That would be lovely :)

Okay, that was a cock-up: I realized only once I left work that I'd failed to get your mobile number, and by then I was trying to locate three different people and get them all to one location for pre-Q&A dinner and drinks. I had no idea how I would've gone about finding you once I got there. If you're generally speaking local, I'd love to meet up, still, for coffee or lunch or something!

Oh, that's quite all right. To be honest I assumed that you'd be meeting other people there anyway, I considered trying to contact you via Twitter but didn't know if you'd have access to it then, and it was quite late in the game anyway. I hope you had a wonderful evening though!

Unfortunately I live in Southampton...quite a way from London. However I hope we do get the chance to meet up soon either way (and I'm always looking for an excuse to visit London, so maybe if I come up for a day at some point we could tea or something?)

I was meeting coldlikedeath, gayalondiel, and morelindo - otherwise, I'd actually had no set plans, and meeting up with all three of them proved a little bit of a juggling act, but we all got there in the end! My phone only likes Twitter occasionally, and the other night wasn't one of those times :(

If you're ever heading to London, please do let me know! I'd love to meet you.

Belated congrats on submitting, and good luck with the job hunt!

Job interview was had on Monday; job was had by Tuesday; started job on Wednesday :)

I hope good things come from the job interview!

I did get it! Started this afternoon. They're a lovely team.
