Is there any alternate version of Cinderella where the stepmother is gay for Cinderella, and doesn't want her going off to balls or getting married because she just doesn't want her leaving the house? THIS QUESTION HAS PLAGUED ME FOR MANY YEARS.
And in case you were wondering, the ballet I went to see today (Cinderella) was fabulous. I like ballet, but there's never been one that's made me want to cry before. I don't think it's touring at the moment, but if it does or if you live near Leeds I would definitely highly recommend it. Northern Ballet Theatre is great.
And I bought my final Christmas present today, aside from money for my sister. I bought dad vodka because mum says he likes it - I've never seen him drink it, so I hope she's right. I was going to get a litre, as the biggest 'gift' bottle on the shelf, but it looked genuinely massive, so he'll have to make do with 70cl. Hah.
I also picked up the last few things in Leeds I wanted before Christmas. Mostly this was comics. I am kind of enjoying getting comics issue by issue at the moment, something I've not really done before, but between some comics taking months and months to put out a new issue, some selling out of an issue before I have a chance to pick it up so I have a bit of the story missing, and the fact I keep finding new and exciting comics to start even though they cost about £2.50 each and it does add up if you're just following more and more new titles - I don't know if I'm going to keep doing it long-term. Hmph.
Also I got a Christmas card from jekesta
, thank you jekesta
. It's nice to know Roger Moore had some bearing on my cards this year.
I have to go now because I had to get up early to get into Leeds for shopping and ballet and now my head is killing me, byyyyye.
