Excitement!

My costume for the ball is finished, as of about 11pm last night. Which it had to be, because I'll be away tonight, and the next time I arrive home will be about 3 hours before the ball starts. I'm still not saying what it is, but that doesn't stop me expressing generic excitement about it. How delicious to know that it is ready and waiting for me to transform myself into a creature of mystery and allure at the end of the week. *Generic!Squee*

Photographs will follow for those not attending the event in person.

I did manage to find time for dinner with [livejournal.com profile] kantti in the Noodle Bar last night, which was lovely as I haven't seen her since July. The food was good, but we were underwhelmed by the fortunes which came in our fortune cookies: "Smile when you are ready" and "In order to take, one must first give". Very dour and Victorian, I felt.

Then tonight I shall be the guest of [livejournal.com profile] keris and [livejournal.com profile] davefish in sunny Coventry, which doubtless will include a lot of us getting over-excited about the ball, since we're all going. I wonder if I shall have the self-discipline to keep quiet about the exact nature of my costume? *stiffens sinews* And whether I shall get a sneaky preview of theirs? *dons Sekrit Agent shades*

Tonight a huge gang of us went out to see Dracula at the Grand Opera House in Belfast.

Theatrical opulence )

The play: modernistic yet true to the book )

Finally, it was back in three car-loads to my place, to see this evening's Doctor Who and generally hoot loudly with laughter, do Dalek impressions and throw Creme Eggs on the floor (lordy, I do hope my landlords don't read this journal!).
