  1. When I was younger, I used to live in a little fishing village called Johnsahven on the East coast of Sotland. I used to trick or treating with a big group of friends. Once I dressed up as the conventional ghost - you know, sheet over head, two holes cut in for eyes. It was pretty awful. The next year I went dressed as a witch, complete with pointy hat and warty nose!!

    Its tradition here to go duking for apples. Does anyone else do this? Basically you have a load of apples in a big tub of water and you have to stick your head in the water to grab the apples wih your teeth(you all probably know this). I HATED doing this. I don't like sticking my head underwater very much anyway. Nearly every house we went to, we had to go inside and do this. I used to dread it.

    Then there were the times when you would knock on a door and you just knew that everyine in the house was hiding because they couldn't be bothered to answer the door and listen to another non-funny joke. Although I admit, when I got older, I used to do this also.

    Well, reading that back to myself, it seems as if I didn't really enjoy Halloween that much did I? Oh well...

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE :reddeath2:

  2. You took pictures of the screen didn't ya :lmao: They are not bad quality if you did

    He was speaking so manly and very Scottish. Loved it

    Moira

    :funnyup: . I recorded it onto DVD then played on my computer to get screen caps. Its was the best I could do at the moment. I'm not very computer minded I'm afraid :tantrum: , still learning.

  3. I will say anybody who has a hankering to come but will be by themselves so is maybe undecided just go for it :wave: .

    Ow Moira, you pulled me over :woo::bonk:

    I already have my tickets, just need to print them out and I'll be there :)

    I arrive sunday the 15th at 11:25 and have a flight back the next day.

    Got my tickets to celebrate my birthday which is 3 days later.

    I'm so ecstatic and I can't believe I'm doing this, oh my gosh :nervous::doh::yahoo:

    Woohoo so glad you are coming to join the fun. There should b quite a crowd. Its going t be great fun. :yay::yay:

  4. Theresa, I'm so thrilled for you!! I got goosebumps as I read your email about how you pulled everything together. And HUGE HUGS to your boss and Stelios, what a man!!!

    Dane, great to hear you're going, too. What about it Jojo? How are your plans going!

    Loving how this is all coming together for you all. I know that Moira will keep y'all under her wing like a mother hen. :wuv:

    Hugs,

    Katie

    Thanks Katie. Its a definite GOGO for me. Seriously, I am so excited. I know I keep saying it but I cant wait. To be able to share this with GALS from far and wide is thrilling. Its a once in a lifetime opportunity for me...

    Jojo

  5. I made it, I made it! I am coming! You wouldn't believe the day I had trying to switch tickets without too much additional cost, find alternative dates that would work for Stelios and my boss, find a way to get from Scotland to NY on Monday in time for my work obligations...

    At first it seemed that I wouldn't be able to make it because there were no places on either Saturday or Sunday or Monday flights from Athens to NY for my husband and my boss. After a lot of calls and lots of worry and prayers, I was told that two seats were found on Monday's flight. My boss was extremely accommodating, I just told him that Friday was not workinng for personal reasons and would he mind going on Monday instead? And he just said yes, bless him! Then Stelios said he didn't feel like coming to Glasgow with me because I would be too busy with "the Beef" anyway and my GALSb friends. But he was totally OK to fly to NY on Monday with my boss and meet me there. In return we are staying until the following Sunday and he gets to go to two hockey games so he is in heaven!

    So I am coming on Saturday and staying with my recently butlerised cousin who is also coming to the event. Of course she still cannot believe what I am doing and the lengths I have gone too but she is to excited to be part of this.

    So we need to get organised about Sunday. Moira, since you have more experience, how do you suggest we go about it? Maybe we should take this off site, my e-mail is in my profile.

    Thank you everyone for your support over the last couple of days, I really think your positive thoughts helped me to make this happen when it seemed impossible at first. Remember the Adidas avertisment, Impossible is nothing? Gerry is living proof of it and an inspiration that pushes us trying just a little bit harder and never give up.

    Theresa

    So glad its all sorted for you. What a lovely & understanding husband (and boss!) you have.

    Can't wait to meet you... :wave:

    Check your PM's

  6. Thanks for the info Moira - your'e a star :thankyou:

    Even though I haven't got too far to travel I have never been to Glasgow(terrible I know) so I really don't have a clue about where anything is. I will study a map I think. I have been looking for hotels that are near the cinema, so thanks for the heads up on those ones. I'm not sure if I should come down on the Saturday or early Sunday morning...The train journey will take about 2.5 hours. I have to work on Saturday though. I think I might stay until Monday morning then catch the train back. Not sure yet Hehe so exciting...

    I do hope there's going to be a big crowd. I can push and shove if I need to *elbows at the ready*

    Gerry switching on christmas lights - now that would be fun :party:

  7. Well I've just done a 24 hour cleanse today. It wasn't really bad at all. I don't know what I was expecting, to feel quite hungry I suppose.

    It was basically drinking lots of lemon water, cayenne pepper(the one that has already been mentioned I think). I drink lots of lemon water anyway so that wasn't too much of a hardship. Then the usual fruit, veg and general healthy stuff. Doing it today, makes me notice just how many unhealthy things I have been eating. I didn't feel any hunger pains at all which I thought I might. Hopefully it has done me some good.

    Must keep up a healthy eating plan as you are saying. Wouldn't want to ruin what I have started.

    BTW I lost 3lbs after weighing myself this morning. Woohoooo...*doing a victory dance*...

  8. I too would love to experience this amazing opportunity with fellow GALS - can we make it happen? :wave:

    I want to go so much

    Jojo

    Of course we can make it happen ! Let's see where the venue is first and then we can make arrangements about a specific place nearby where we can meet. And afterwards we an go for dinner or something.

    Theresa

    Oh I really hope so. It would be so much fun. I love how one man can bring so many people from around the world to one place. It just amazes me as I am very new to this whole fandom community.

    So are we doing this? I will book my plane ticket right now if you say yes?

    Dane

    OK Lets do it. I can't quite beleive i'm saying that :pointy: Wow this is exciting.

  10. Yipeee, I just got tickets for the Edinburgh showing on the 3rd. I am trying so hard to convince someone to go with me(my mother actually) but she ain't having none of it. I am trying my hardest to convince her of the erm *merits* of Mr Butler but so far she remains unconvinced. More of a Hugh Jackman fan...

    So it might just be me...all by myself...(isn't that a song?!) :tissues:
