    4/19 Mini-trip to London

    Yesterday I went on a mini-trip to London for the day, and I must say a jolly ol' time was had by all. Well I had fun anyway.
    In the morning we went to Madame Tussauds, a wax museum of celebrities. It has branches in Las Vegas, Amsterdam, New York and Hong Kong but is headquartered in London, and is one of my favourite places in the city.


    Madame Tussauds of London.


    My good friend Sean Connery. I pretended to talk to him for quite a while.


    I wasn't impressed with Tom's serenade.


    I don't think Naomi was very impressed with me either. She was concentrating on Christy Turlington's behind.


    Angelina: Where's Brad? And who are you?
    Andrew: Baby, you don't need to know who I am - all you need to know is what I do and how


    For those who don't watch BBC America or BBC Canada, this is Andy and Lou from Little Britain. For those who do, "Yeah I know".


    My ol' buddy Patrick Stewart. He was boring.


    Madonna: Can someone please remove the crazy British guy from my French sofa?


    Highlight of the morning. A real Vampire Slayer!


    Haha. This time its me hogging the attention.


    Showing them how it's done.


    Fratinising with the enemy? He had B.O.


    Finally, I was called up for an audience with Her Maj. I made a point of ignoring the old farts in the back.

    After that, we left Madame Tussauds and took the Tube over to Kensington Gardens and the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Park, which is based on the Peter Pan stories. Pretty cool actually, I had some good times here when I was younger.



    Kensington Palace.


    The tree that J. M. Barrie used to write under, now infested with little wooden pixies.


    Captain Hook's ship.


    Yum... Tinker Bell flavour ice-cream.

    We then went over to do some shopping in Oxford, Bond and Regent Streets.


    Regent Street.


    Bond Street.

    And to Leicester Square for some much-needed food. Unfortunately there was some cheapo premiere on at the Odeon (apparently an even cheaper one next week - Tom Cruise is coming) for a film I've never heard of, and my mum being the showbiz crow she is, was determined to watch droves of D-list celebrities pretend to be famous and loved. So we missed out on the food for 30min. Not impressed, in the cold London night wind.


    The crappy film. Have you heard of it? No, didn't think so.


    The big Odeon, where the good premieres are held. Yes, there are two Odeons in Leicester Square, the smaller one is for the crappy films.

    And then we went home. I wanted to go to Buckingham Palace and have my photo taken there, but my mum said there wasn't enough time - well no there wasn't after she had sat for half the day in the Peter Pan playground with her friend getting through a bottle of wine and making fun of foreigners.

    Anyway, hoped you all liked.

    They speak as well! Theres a little speaker in each of their mouths. I can remember a few quotes... erm, I think one was "So Andy, we're in Madame Tussauds, what do you think, eh?" "I wanna go on the London Eye."

    Great pictures! How cool that you can pose with the wax figures, most of the time they're roped off and you're not allowed near them.

    What I want to know is, Is Tom Jones all that?? I've heard rumors, just curious if the wax figure lived up to it's potential???

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Wow the wax figures really are better there. There's no Beverly Hill's cop version of Eddie Murphy wearing a lab coat as the Nutty Professor.
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    Awesome pictures! How does one stick to just a "mini-trip" to London? It was exciting for me to see your pictures because my hubbie and I are going to live/work in London this fall from Aug to Dec. We're looking forward to it!

    Well I live an hour away on the train, so we go down for the day, buy an all-day Transport for London ticket, and we have the city at our feet - unlimited travel on the Tube and buses. Most things we do are cheap or discounted.

    Re: 4/19 Mini-trip to London

    Great report! love the pics!
    I'm totally jealouse too that you can take a day trip to London!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I love London. I'd move there at the fist opportunity.

    How was the weather?
