My day greatly improved when we went to watch the QE2 make her final voyage out of her home in Southampton. She's off to Dubai to become a floating resturant, because we're completely incapable of actually keeping any of our heritage for ourselves.
It was pretty emotional, really. I get choked up about this sort of thing. The Captain's speech was televised to us all on the land and it was very touching. I took video myself, but I haven't uploaded it anywhere. Luckily, some people were on the ball - this is a nice video someone's uploaded of the beautiful fireworks display we had while she sailed out for the final time. :(
I still might get to go on her, someday. Dubai is definitely on my list of places to visit. I've already been on the Queen Mary while I was in California, and on London Bridge when I was in Arizona. Seems like the best places to find England's culture is to go across the world to see it. -_-;
Anyway, I guess it's nearly 3 am and I was up at five this morning watching said terrible anime. I'm not particularly tired now, mind you, but I've gotten into a beautiful habit of watching South Park before I go to sleep. I've been watching series ten and eleven? I think. Funnier than I ever remembered South Park being. It's really matured over the years. I've always enjoyed it, but the comedy NOW is a far cry from vomiting over a girl because she talked to you, or a poo that sings about Christmas. The WOW episode had me giggling like an idiot and I don't even play WOW. :P
