Neil said so, it must be true. *beams proudly*

Oh, I'm so happy. :) On Friday trukkle went to the Graveyard Book event in London, where he met my friend arcadiaego and proceeded to have a jolly wonderful time laughing and being adorably excited dorks at each other, yayyy. Neil read Chapter Five from the book, answered lots of questions from the audience (like about his buddy Jonathan Ross's recent behaviour, and quite possibly confirming that he is indeed writing for Doctor Who - I need to write him about that, actually ;-), and then did a swift and efficient signing for the fans. Well, it was swift until trukkle got to him. *grins*

arcadiaego was first, and was able to have her picture taken, which was lucky, before moving to the side in a state of abject squee while James had his turn. :) He said he was there at my request, and Neil lit up and asked how I was doing and said lovely things about me and wheeeee :D Then James said that I was very well and in fact recently became engaged...to him. (Eeeee I am now Officially Unofficially Engaged. I think. ;-) And Neil beamed and shook his hand and congratulated us, and said more lovely things about me and then James had to leave because the girl behind in the queue was getting jealous and making 'hmmmph' noises at him. ;-) So he stumbled off the stage in a giddy daze, as Neil called out that he liked his shirt (which I bought for him of course :) and James and Liz went back to their seats to bask in the glow of a brilliant evening. I'm so happy for them! I wish I had been there, of course, but I'm thrilled they had such a marvelous time. And even happier Neil said I was magical. Oh, bliss. :)))))

Well, of course he did! :D Aw, wonderful story, I'm grinning all over my tiny little facelet.

I tend to shy away from meeting famous people or people I admire, because I never know what I'm supposed to say to them. But I've always thought I'd never have that problem with Neil, I'd just talk about you. :)

I think he'd smirk at you all night if all you did was waffle on about me. Not that *I* would mind, of course. ;-)

(And the Doctor Who thing was soooo frustrating, he just paused for aaages and said "it would be nice, wouldn't it? *smiles innocently*" GRRR.)

*laughs* You don't need ME to be cool. *squishums* :) (But apparently it helps. YEE. ;-)

Oh POO, James was reporting it like he totally confirmed he was on board, arrrrghh. Neil is such a tease. ;-)

Awww that's amazing :D

And I hope hope hope that he will write for Doctor Who!

He so totally is writing for DW, he's just been a coy little tease about it. *grins* (If it were untrue he would have denied it months ago. That smirk he makes with a sigh in a 'oh wouldn't it grand' gesture is him having fun with us. Jerk. ;-)

Are you feeling any better today? *cuddles lots*
Gemmasparklygem on November 4th, 2008 01:52 pm (UTC)
A little, thank you Nevvie :)

I'll be fine, he's agreed to go back to the doctors this week so hopefully they'll refer him to someone.

It was not my fault! NOT MY FAULT!

The adherance of the repeated me blocked my every move! Neil was out to get me and I had to escape to Birmingham to avoid the assasination droids of the Face of Bo!

I hadn't realized NEIL said it! WHEEEE!!! Oh you're awesome.
