So, the party was yesterday. What happened? Those of you who came to the party will know. Those of you who couldn't make it (for whatever reason) never will. What I will say is that those of you who were coming, and then didn't, missed out big time!

The party was highly entertaining and very interesting.

And I wanted to say thank you Mr Cumberbatch!

You're a wicked tease! :P I'll bet it was awesome. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it - goodness knows you put in enough hard work for it. ♥ :hugs: ♥

I know! Thank you!

The whole day was "interesting". I sure as hell found out who my friends were!

The highlight for me was that my parents came to the National Theatre for the first time in 20 years, after me banging on and on about it. They saw Danny's production and they saw Benedict in the production. They said they enjoyed it. They ate at the Mezzanine and they saw the free exhibitions. They were there for the free foyer music. They saw the one place that I wanted them to see in London - the one place that is dearest to my heart. At the end of the day, that is what was important and what meant the most to me.





I'd like to think "interesting" is a euphemism for "interesting". xD

It's funny*, isn't it, how just making something special for the people you love can be so immensely satisfying. At least now when you're banging on about it to your folks (and don't we all make our parents suffer through that with our enthusiasms!) they'll have some fresh mental images to draw on.

*I mean good-funny - 'interesting' just wasn't going to cut it in the circumstances. ;)

What I mean was that the people who were close to me came. That meant the world to me.

Lots of people who had said they were coming, didn't.

As I said, they missed out big time!

Some things are worth doing not for the intended results, but for the unintended outcome itself. Knowing who your friends are is one heck of a good outcome, really. :)

Yes and one unintended outcome which was completely unforeseen completely blew me away!

"Knowing who your friends are is one heck of a good outcome, really" - This is very true!

I'm glad your parents enjoyed their trip to the National. I know that my mother did when I took her to Frankenstein in March. It wouldn't have been her first choice of play, but my enthusiasm convinced her and she appreciated that it was definitely something special.

As a party pooper, I have no right to ask any questions, so I'll just say that I'm now looking forward to seeing all Benedict's forthcoming projects coming up in film and on television later this year. And let's hope he finds the time to get back on the stage in this country again soon too! :-)

My parents SAID that they enjoyed their trip to the National - by which I mean that I think that they said that because they know how much the National means to me - I have inflicted my Ode to the National on them!

"I'll just say that I'm now looking forward to seeing all Benedict's forthcoming projects coming up in film and on television later this year" - Yes - so am I!

"And let's hope he finds the time to get back on the stage in this country again soon too!" YES YES YES!

By the way, you were not a party pooper you just had other things on on Bank Holiday weekend - so did a lot of my friends and family and so they weren't able to make it!

I really wish I could have been there.

Had fully intended to go and support you after all your hard work, (had even planned what outfit I was going to wear), but then the dreaded illness struck.

I was throwing up from Friday until yesterday morning, it was not pleasant.

Thrilled that everything went so brilliantly!!!!!!!!


yvaine24 - I wasn't talking about you when I talked about people saying that they were going to be there and then they couldn't be.

I knew you would have been there if at all possible.

When you didn't show up, I thought that either you were held up at work or else something else had happened to prevent you coming - it had! illness!
