We got home yesterday and I'm still in post-trip letdown lethargy mode. I've missed a zillion flist posts, woe, but I'm too blah to play catch-up right now. I'll try to go through them tomorrow. I do care, really!.

I'll do a recap and also post pictures eventually (I really did manage to take slightly different ones from last year), but um. See first sentence.

I do have to post this one, though. Found in the hostel washroom, in a frame with no glass:



I spent actual time staring at it until I figured out that yes, it really was who I thought it was. And it was in a FRAME. Apparently the universe is telling me to start writing, like now, kid. Okay, okay, when I'm over the blahs. And then there's the whole 'leaving again in less than two weeks' thing.

*Stares at the picture*

This woman looks so much like Victoria Metcalf! :-OOO
And seeing her with a baby is... weird!

I looked at the back of the picture, and it looks like a magazine clipping, so I'm guessing it is Melina Kanakaredes. It's really odd that someone took the time to clip the picture and put it in a frame (albeit one with no glass).

Oh, it explains a lot!
I thought I started to hallucinate! :-)

It's going in my story. The picture, that is, although I think it'll end up a drawing and not a photograph.

I agree with _scally that does look like Victoria. Scary...

Although make one wonder whose the kid would be...

Well, it's probably Melina's. She has two daughters, or so I read.

Or of course some random model baby...

Hmm. Yeah, although that's kind of weird when you think about it. *g*

Dude. I totally forgot to give you The Departed. I had it in my purse and everything. So I needs your new addy.

Also, Romeo and Juliet? Save for the actor who played Mercutio, bleah. The first and last scenes were set in contemporary times, but everything else was Renaissance. It.Was.Bizarre.

Also? Now that you've seen Hamlet (*afterglow*), you have no excuse not to was Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. Which you must do. Immediately.

I'll email you with my address when I'm not too lazy to open my email account (I'm not kidding about post-trip lethargy, y0).

Re: R&G: Yes, mom. :D

Oh, definitely. I mean, it was RIGHT THERE when I went to take a shower. Weird as heck.

She lurks EVERYWHERE, apparently. At least in Canada.

Nope, it's the universe telling me to get on with the Dreaded Kidfic already. :D

It's definitely a picture of the woman who plays her. Not sure if the baby is one of her daughters or not.

Ontario! Where? Stratford? Where else? Tell me!!

*massive typo edits*

London, actually. Way too expensive to stay in Stratford (Hamlet was awesome, though, literally). We also went to Toronto and Ottawa. Me? I'd have gone directly from Stratford to Ottawa, but I thought mr_t00by would like to go to Toronto as well.

I really want to head west next year (money depending)--songdog is living in Idaho now and from the pictures she's sent me it looks like a gorgeous place. So I figure from there maybe I could go northwest into BC and YT and Alaska.

Where I'll get the money for this is anyone's guess. My body's too old to sell and my brain is way too clogged with useless trivia to be of use to anyone. If I do manage to come up with the cash and make the trip, I'll definitely warn you let you know.

Dude. You are being stalked by Victoria. Or her mom.

More like Victoria and her daughter. I'd best get writing. *g*

Oh dear. So in this universe Victoria wasn't a psycho bank robber, I take it. *g*

Oh, she was. At least she was a bank robber. However, she is also quite dead.
