HBP, Shakespeare, Bridges, and TRUE BLOOD!

After an exhausting week back to work...
I am now ready to update my tale!

Right after we left Madam Tussaud's,
Hazel and I decided we wanted to do some more walking.
Okay, so I just wanted to walk across the Millennium Bridge.

Now, keep in mind, when you do not realize how big London is,
it's easy to say "Hey, let's go to the Millennium Bridge now!"

My legs and feet were screaming at me by the end of the day.

Does this picture dazzle you?
Here it is!
Millennium Bridge!
Does it look familiar?
It should!
The Death Eaters destroyed it at the beginning of HBP!
So naturally, I had to walk across it!

After completing our walk across the bridge we stopped at
The Globe Theatre.
Okay if you're not familiar with this theatre,
just watch Shakespeare in Love.

we could have paid to take a tour of the inside of this place
there was a show the night we went
we went inside the museum area and had a little fun.

Pocket Edward wanted to stand in front of the Romeo and Juliet display for Pocket Bella.

Then, Pocket Edward thought he would try being helpful by showing patrons the line-up of various Shakespeare plays.

He actually got bored of that pretty fast, so we walked into the gift shop.
Pocket Edward wanted to pose with his old chum Willie Shakespeare.
Puh-leaze little dude!
You're not that old!
Not even Carlisle was alive during Shakespeare's time!!
Moving on!

Pocket Edward, understanding my limited funds, attempted to draw in donations for my vacation cause.
I don't think people donating to the theatre would have appreciated us taking the money for my recreational purposes, but you never know.

We decided to sit on the wall by the river for a minute.
I took this picture.
Pocket Edward jumped right on in.
Apparently he wasn't getting enough attention!

the name on the building says it...

Pocket Edward didn't jump in this time!
Isn't it pretty? :)

Here is an old looking pub.
I just thought it looked cool.
So I took a picture!

The Clink Prison Museum...

There is another church.
I can't remember the name of it though.

The Tower Bridge!!!

Pocket Edward got really excited!!

He told us that we "have to walk across Tower Bridge!!"
Look, just because he has an endless amount of energy doesn't mean that we humans don't need our rest!

I wanted my picture taken in front of the Tower Bridge.
Pocket Edward wanted to join me.
Aren't we so cute?!?!?!

Okay, here we go.
We're walking.

This building was also in HBP!

I referred to this building as
The Bullet.
I think it's called The Gerkken, but I honestly don't know how to spell it.
You saw the reflection of this building in HBP as well!
Look at my vast amount of nerdy knowledge!!!
I'm not a Harry Potter freak at all! :P

Walking under a tunnel at the London Dungeons.

Here we are on the Tower Bridge finally!

A tiny door!
I took a picture! :)

Omg this bridge is seriously long!!!

Okay so after we crossed the bridge, we were pretty ready to head back home.
We walked and walked trying to get to the nearest tube station.
Unfortunately, we were walking in the wrong direction.
So we walked some more to find a taxi to take us to the train station.
Taxis are everywhere in London!!
Unless we are trying to find one!
We walked for ten minutes before we were able to flag one down!
And our sore legs finally got to the platform at the train station.

Pocket Edward still had tons of energy left.
Hazel and I were about to pass out.
And we had to wait about an hour for the next train to arrive!

And here endeth another day in London!!
As an American I have to say that we really don't know the meaning of walking.
This trip to England had my legs hurting in places I didn't realize muscles existed!

All right, so here is the part where I take a moment to talk about things that are getting on my nerves.

1) Ashley Green's Nude Photos
Why do we need to criticize her one way or another??
Is it our business?
Is it our job to look down our noses at her?
Who freakin' cares?!?!?
Stop talking about it!!!

2) Sex Videos
Again, I don't care!
Stop acting like the latest scandal is the first sex tape scandal ever!
And while you're at it, GET OVER IT!
Celebrities are people too!!!

3) KStew and RPattz
I don't give a flying f*** if they are together or not!
Quit worrying about what the magazines are saying!
Let them have their damn privacy and stop making it
They are actors!
If they don't work out, they will still work onscreen if they are good at acting!
That is what actors do!
Jesus H. Christ!!!
This subject has me ready to rip my hair out.
I'm so tired of hearing about it!
If they are together, be happy for them and deal with it!
Then move on with your life!
I don't care about the kiss that did or did not happen!

Okay, that's all for my Bad Attitude Rant.

It's a rainbow!

Okay, so maybe I'm just crazy.
The latest Hurricane...

Hurricane Bill.

Bill Compton.
I hate you.
Go play with your hurricane!

Eric Northman.
I love you.
Hurry up and steal Sookie away from Bill!
He annoys me!

Bill instead of Eric?
Do you need glasses??

The Maenad.
Bitch, I hate you!
You were NOT this annoying in the books!
Stop trying to kill Sam dammit!
And stop picking on Tara and Eggs already!
We get it!
You make people come to your orgy parties and do your bidding!
Okay, gross!
Sam shapeshifted into a stupid fly just to hide from you!
When are you going to die?!?!

I love you!
I'm so glad you didn't die on the show like you did in the books!
Can you be the one to off the Maenad?
Have I mentioned that I hate that character??

I might be a little excited about tonight's episode of True Blood.
I'm sad there are only three episodes left in the season.
I am so ready for Eric to get on with his pursuit of Sookie though!
And I think most people agree with me when I say
We demand more Eric!

I must go out into the real world for a few minutes.
Things like showering and eating and socializing with my family...
you know the drill.

I will be back with more England pictures at a later date!

Kellebelle1981 :)


  1. Love all your England pics again! And the fact that you notice little things like when they were shown in HBP. hehe I'm just lucky I got to see the movie, I don't have time for that much detail anymore. Just wait til you have kids!

    As for True Blood, I am so SICK of MaryAnn's character. She better die by the end of this season or I might scream. She definitely wasn't this annoying in the books. I hope there is more pursuing of Sookie by Eric too in the next couple of episodes! I'm not happy that we'll have to wait until next June for the next season again though! Argh!

  2. Wow, you did a lot of walking! I mean A LOT OF WALKING!

    I didn't know Ashley Greene got naked and took pictures of herself! why did she do that? and who is this Kristen and Rpatz chicks?

    Good stuff though. For some reason I thought pocket Edward was smaller than that.

  3. KB - I am loving the PE shots in UK. Too funny. As far as the TB comments, I remember the Maenad when she was a psycho on Guiding Light! Sad but true, I was in college at the time. Have a great week. Don't work to hard!
