So the talk was amazing but the fun started long before they walked on stage. As I plonked down the street, I turned the corner and was nearly at the theatre when a car pulls up and a hoard of people rush over and holy jinkies suddenly Judi Dench is less then five feet away from me! I’m in shock try to find a corner to cool off when suddenly two feet from me the most wonderful voice rings out and says “I’ve come to offer this lovely lady my arm” and Jim Carter saunters over to Judi and takes her arm and leads her inside. So fast forward show is about to start and my crazy annoying friend is late, like really late, like I’m about to murder her late but I’ve noticed that Maggie hasn’t arrived so I’m trying not to panic. Suddenly Maggie’s car drives up and people rush over and the theatre people rush out to get her. She comes in and is three feet away from me and doesn’t look well. She stops to catch her breath and frankly was super annoyed with how quickly everyone descended on her like she was a piece of meat. I of course trying to be calm and literally she is right next to me leaning against the wall catching her breath. Then she disappears and a few minutes later I shuffle down to the theatre and it begins. They are hilarious! They call each other Mags and Jude which is so adorable. They told a bunch of great stories and Jim looked like he was in heaven. It was a really funny night. Also apparently (I discovered at the end) that Sir Derek Jacobi was sitting two rows behind me!!! It was a great night and I’m so glad I went! These two ladies ought to have their own talk show. Also Maggie is just as sassy as one would think and Judi is the sweetest old lady in the world! New life goal: become best friends with all three!
so im one of the people that go and collect carts and i was getting some out of the cart area to take up to the store and as soon as im on the main roadway for the parking lot a kid comes running at full speed through right bside me to what i assume was his car and like i stopped because i didnt want to hit this child and like the mom screamed at me as soon as she was paying attention"move out of the way you fuckin r*tard" and i just still dont understand why i was the one she yelled at
