To Steve or not to Steve, that's the question...  
So Steve Carlson's coming back to London in March. I'd kinda resigned myself to not going for various reasons, but aditu_az has just put the idea in my head again...

I just checked, I can get a Megabus for 11quid each way, the gig itself is a tenner. If I have to I could probably find a hotel room for a night.

Money itself isn't an issue (paying for things with no credit or debit card is, but that's another problem).

So... should I go? I really wanna but I don't want to make people uncomfortable. Which is possible depending on who else is going...

*is confused*

An if anyone would like to convince me to go by coming with me, I'd be more than up for that!

I did a quick speculative search on laterooms.com and found a few under £50 for the night, which would be a bit much for one person, but splitting it could work.

Cat's trying to talk me into it and I have to say I'm pretty much sold. You obviously know the main reason I'm worried though, but it probably is time to be getting on with things and not letting that worry stop me enjoying life.


(and you can come stay with me before/after the gig!)

This is when I'm kinda glad I don't have online access at home right now, all it would take is a couple of beers and I'd be booking it all tonight.

wooooo!!!! my enabler function is on again!

definately come down, I'll even find a peacekeeper hat to wear if necessary. And if you wanted we could meet up a bit before the gig and go in a bit of a group? I'm actually dragging along one of my friends from uni, who has no idea what she's let herself in for, but is lovely. And I have Cassie's ticket too, so she'll have to come to the venue with me.

If you're worried about making anyone uncomfortable, you could maybe send out a polite email warning that you are planning to be there and you don't want there to be an atmosphere or any wank or anything. Because you aren't going there with the purpose of making anyone uncomfortable, you are going to see one of your favourite singers perform. I feel like I should make some sort of inappropriate joke about facing music. I'm in a very weird mood. Other people's discomfort is not your responsibility - as long as we're all being mature cheese adults, then I'm sure it'll all be fine.

I'm *this* close to saying yes.

Seriously, *this* close. It's the gig on the 26th you're going to, right? I may have to be all pathetic and clingy... *grins*

(also, mature cheese smells like feet, are you implying something? Heh!)

My time's just about up in the library now, I'll be on Twitter though!
Cat: meandsteveaditu_az on February 18th, 2010 03:26 pm (UTC)
I'll try be quick then, as I have no idea how twitter actually works!

yep, the 26th is the one, although I think I read that he was thinking of organising one on the 27th too? in which case I might be able to make that one too. But I don't think I'll make the one on the 30th, because that's right on Easter and very tricky logistically. And feel free to cling, I like cling. *nods*

Just saying - finding a hostel might be cheaper than a hotel - if you were okay with the idea of bunking in with other people...

Oooh! That's actually a top idea! I keep forgetting about hostels, mostly because I don't think of myself as being eligible for the YHA now (I know I am, but the 'youth' part of it gets me down!

I say if you can go and still afford necessities, fricken go! ou know it's always a good show....

As for people being uncomfortable, I don't know (or maybe don't remember) the situation but fuck it. You can spend your whole life trying to make sure everyone else is happy and still never accomplish that, and never accomplish anything for yourself in the bargain. Why deny yourself something YOU want (as long as you know, you're not out killing and maiming people? lol)

Steve's LA show is on a Thursday night and I have to work the next da. (It's Payday Friday so I can't skip out!) and screw it.... I'l be exhausted but I am NOT missing it.

Thanks sweetie - you've helped convince me that it's a really good idea to go to this. It's Steve. It'll be an awesome gig even if I end up on my own!

If you can afford it, go, fuck everything else! If I could afford it/felt like going, I would :)

& I know I said I was staying off LJ til after uni, but I'm having a procrastinating day. Leaving now!

Sekrit lurker!

I'm going. It would be awesome if you would come too but I know uni's being a bitca right now. *hugs*

(Although dude, if Chris comes over this year I'm personally going to drag you away from what you're doing to see him!)
laura: GG//Lorelai Rory hughopeless_cynic on February 19th, 2010 04:33 pm (UTC)

Good, glad you're going! I would love to go but I don't know if I would even if I could. If that makes sense. Uni is being a completely evil bastard at the moment anyway as you say so there's no point entertaining the idea! *squishes*

(If Chris comes over, definitely! As long as it's not in April or May, as that would be even more impossible!)

They're in pre-production for LVG s3 right now so it's likely he'll be filming in April and May, I think!

laura: Boys//Chris on stagehopeless_cynic on February 19th, 2010 04:48 pm (UTC)
Good, hopefully he'll wait until after I've finished uni then! That's a thought, August might be a problem if I have any resits. Bugger. We'll wait and see, this will require thought!

I just spend way too long worrying about things I can't change. I'm gonna go. If I can get a ticket!
velvetwhipvelvetwhip on February 18th, 2010 06:35 pm (UTC)
I hope you can go.
