Well appologies for the double postage here but I do have things to report.
On friday Mrs. Dark and I toddled down to London for a couple of days singing course. Well I say "toddled" accept it meant basically a three hour train journey and an hour's drive, though i was able to get more of Timecrest played on the way and I'm reading through brandon sanderson's alloy of lore too which is proving fun. Actually I've discovered the perfect combination of activities, I play a bit of Timecrest, wait until Ash gets busy, then swap my earbuds over to my victor and read a bit more sanderson, setting the sleep function for the amount of time Ash will be off doing whatever .
We stayed at an absolutely wonderful place in London called the federation of St. Catharine. it's actually a theology colidge and retreat center who have the most w onderful guarden, (nice to find somewhere with grass for the dogs in the middle of London, not to mention amazing breakfasts!
It was good, accept on Saturday we went to the vox integra singing course and ended up getting shattered. The duette we did is from The Secret Guarden, a small scene qabout a guy talking to the ghost of his dead wife and woo nelly, being that upset is exhausting, accept that we did make everyone cry on multiple occasions which is good, and heard a couple of other really good performances too.
then however the journey back was nearly a potential disaster, since the course was in the royal opera studio, which is in a random part of london and the driver ended up being a little late (not as bad as last year when we stood out in the rain for nearly two hours minutes bbut nearly), but it finished with us literally running into the train station with ten minutes to spare to try and get our train back.
we managed it, thanks to a very nice taxi dr iver who literally charged with us across kings cross station (which is massive and very busy), to find the customer service desk.
It's very silly, the railway service did announce to me proudly that there is now "an assistance button!" accept that the button is actually by the taxi rank (which is literally up and down half a mile of road), also how your supposed to find the smegging button when you can't see it I have no idea.
Last year when this happened I was nearly at the point of yelling loudly that there was a bomb just to get the attention of the security guard since trying to find any helpful staff on the railway when not being able to see is quite the nightmare, and not one they make particularly easier (they couldn't say put the button just as you come in the door).
Either way we managed it, and apart from my mum having the bright idea to phone at 20 to twelve just as we were going to sleep (I told her I'd be back at eleven), it was good, though today we're both a bit frazled to say the least. Still, nice to go and get some serious performing done, a shame we don't get to do it more often.
Now I have to decide what for today, though probably continuing timecrest. I do want to get back to frandum, but also there are always more games to try, actually we've had a slue of good ones recently. I also need to write my review of rosemery and rue by Seanon mcguire, though whether I'll get that done today I am not sure.
