Just playing our marvy bootleg copy of Lilo & Stitch pa russki. (Stitch is "Experment shest-dva-shest.") We mailed it to ourselves from Beijing. Once we found the post office (the first post office we were pointed to was actually a bank, and the second was literally a bombed out shell of a building), doing EMS from China turned out to be simple and quick. The forms were even in English! Wow. And, the packages are arriving literally days later.

Now, London, on the other hand...

London post is falling down )

Done with London. Off to Riga. May be off Intarnets for a long, long time.

Last medallions are out. The line stretched out the door and down the hall and down the hall and down the hall and down the hall......

So, even though we don't really buy Star Wars any more, sometimes, we find ourselves buying Star Wars, even in London, where we're basically bleeding money from the nose. The artist who did the ridiculously cute chara designs for the CIV badges was here at CE. And because we picked up a couple of his prints, he threw in a special surprise.

tiki is reporting live to you from the Celebration Europe store.

What's cool? Given that we barely forced ourselves to buy anything at CIV.

Oooooo.... )

Wore our favorite watch to England. In fitting with all else that's happened, it stopped.

After getting the panels started at Celebration, made a special excursion to a nearby mall especially to visit a jewelry store and get new battery.

Jewelry Store: couldn't touch watch, as it would necessitate removing watchband first. This high tech operation beyond their capabilities. Sent down the hall to...

Watch Repair Place: told battery would cost nine pounds. Agreed on price, then repairman saw watch start again. Declared watch was not on low battery, but instead definitely broken, necessitating dispatch upstairs to...

Snooty Watch Place: told they couldn't even touch watch, as it was a Fossil, and they had no contract with Fossil. Instructed to take watch to Bond Street. Frustration with entire continent of Europe drove us back to...

Watch Repair Place, where, like typical stupid American, we instructed Repair Guy to shut up and replace the damn battery already. Which he did. "Here ya go love!" (We loves it when they call us "love" and obviously don't mean it.)

Kiddies: when you get back from an international trip, and you wash your jeans, make sure your passport is not still in the pocket!!!

This message brought to courtesy of Tattoo Shane, who nearly didn't make it to CE. Silly Canadians.

The Celebration Europe poster.

*Squees with squee-pitation*

Star Wars & Beatles = almost as cool as Star Wars & Stitch.

And he brought potbellies....

...and a "scream" beach towel!

(Seriously, why is Stitch screaming AAAH? Or is somebody who sees Stitch supposed to be screaming AAAH? Or maybe Stitch has just discovered the volume of an irregular object may be determined by the volume of water displaced?)
