There and Back Again
This is Hallie, hijacking Kaitie's journal. Because I can. She is so amazing, words cannot begin to describe how excited I am to be here with her. We have had the most action packed couple of days imaginable, and I am seriously sleep deprived. But I wouldn't change any of it for the world, except perhaps to add more hours to the day! |
Meeting Kaitie on Saturday was...unnerving! Not because she's scary, because she's not at all, but meeting someone you've never met before, someone you have been chatting to for years and who you consider one of your best friends is always going to be a bit nervy. But things worked out excellently. I was at Heathrow for AGES before Kait showed up, and was terrified that I'd missed her, but I knew exactly who she was when she walked out of arrivals (my biggest fear was that I wouldn't recognise her. i don't have much of a memory for faces. And then it was REALLY surreal. I mean, I wanted to hug her, but what if she wasn't a touchy feely person? So, in fact, we hugged for the first time today! LOL! My friend Stuart hugged Kaitie before me. That is weird. Especially as I am an incredibly tactile person. Anyway, after the surrealness that is meeting a typeface, we took the Stanstead Express to London, and had a manic sight seeing tour. I actually suck as a tour guide because I have no sense of direction, and my map reading ability is...non-existent. But we survived and saw lots of wonderful things. Not Buckingham Palace, though - we're going to do that tomorrow.
Today has been wonderful too (except between 9 and 12, when I had an exam. Not so cool.) We did Cambridge sightseeing, and it was really good fun. Especially because if I wasn't a student here Kait wouldn't have got to see most of the places we photographed as they are 'no entry to visitors'. There are some perks to being a member of the university after all!
Had a fab time this evening - Kait met my other half, Andrew, and we had a photo shoot. I'll leave the posting of photographs to her, but suffice to say I am really happy to have the privilege of meeting her.
Absolutely shattered, so signing off to allow K to update herself!
PS - I chose the icon. For the record, I am not trying to be Brendan in any way shape or form. So get your minds out of the gutter.
