A post! A post with actual content!
So, yesterday we made plans. These plans involved moonlettuce
coming over to mine for lots of food, lots of fun and the finale of Primeval
. Given the spoilers, we figured we'd need people to 'meep' with, because the episode looked scary to a complete wimp like me.
The day started off with moonlettuce
and I going on a fruitless search for the Connor Temple action figure. We trekked around the Metrocentre, and even phoned Fenwick, and everyone had sold out of the action figures entirely. We pretty much had the rest (I didn't get Lester and Claire didn't get the Helen/Claudia double pack) when we were last in town, and I'd picked up the anomaly incursion set for each of us on Thursday. Claire did get a plushie Rex in Toys R Us, which was as shit a store as usual. I hate that place so much, with its crappy layout and extraordinarily poor customer service. Unfortunately, there aren't many other toy shops in the Metro Centre.
We did, however, acquire a giant cookie for the evening. We had some discussion on what to write on the cookie. For some strange reason, it ended up being Dinosaurs Made Them Do It!
::innocent look:: I'd like to point out that that was moonlettuce
's suggestion. Mine had been the rather more sedate but slightly more obviously Primeval FTW!
. But given the fact that we're both shippy about the show, it made sense. Also, more letters so more chocolate and vanilla icing!
On the way back to mine, we went to Tescos for some stuff I'd forgotten, and they
still had Primeval
action figures. Just not, unfortunately, Connor, who only came out a few days ago. Nick and Stephen were thrilled. Abby less so, until she was told she could watch.
I might have acquired a Lester. Nibble might possibly have set them all up on the living room floor in a battle formation, facing all of the monsters. We might also possibly have ordered Connor online from the manufacturer directly. But we're saying nothing incriminating.
And then davechicken
turned up, and there were chips, dips, chocolate chip cookie and countdown to Primeval
Which finally happened.( Spoilers for the ep )
So, I loved the whole episode, even the angsty bits. And I'm happy. And possibly desperate for Season 3.
