Hello lovely Liverpoolers,
I'm visiting Liverpool this weekend (Saturday/Sunday 19-20 July) and could use some pointers on what to do with the very very limited time I'll have there.  I'll need to visit the Beatles museum, obviously, and Saturday night I'm reallyexcited to be going to a concert at the Echo Arena.  Any thoughts on more things to do in that area, or nearby? (A note: I'm not really the drinking/clubbing type.)

Also, and this is the downside... my traveling buddy crapped out on the concert after plans were already arranged, and our hostel is between the Echo Arena and the airport.   Should I be worried about getting a taxi there alone at 11 at night, when my concert lets out?  And my friend decided she would [do whatever she decides to do] while I'm at the show, so is there anywhere I can recommend she go/not go?

The parents are coming over next week (Friday) and wants to go eat somewhere. Now, I have lived here for four months and have so far never set foot in a restaurant. Are there any nice places around?

Tis The Season
Hey there everyone!!

Haven't posted here in a while, so here I am!

How's everybody doing lately? Looking forward to Christmas?

We've had nothing but rain lately; which has been annoying. But at least all the Christmas deccies are up around town! ^_^

I put my tree up on December 1st! Yays!! I haven't had a decent Christmas in years, or decorations.

Some of my friends sent me decorations through the post. Haha! Was a nice surprise! But I missed one of the packages twice coz the postie came when I was out (he left it with next door the second time around). A guy from next door brought it over; which was nice of him. But he musta thought I was some kinda tramp coz he came knocking when I was cleaning/bleaching, so I had these really really baggy trousers and a shitty top on that I only wear when I'm cleaning!! Hahaha!!

Anyone else got their deccies up yet?

This is my first Christmas since moving to Liverpool too! Weeeee!!

Bye for now!

Wanted: Mr Impossible Plush Toys
Hey everyone!!

This, is Mr Impossible:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

He, is one of the Mr Men. I'm looking for 12 plush toys of him. The small, McDonald's Happy Meal toys. I want them by Decemeber 5th this year. Why? Because that's our 1 year Anniversary, Will and me. ^^

And seeing as he has a liking for Mr Impossible... er, he thinks he's God... I want to surprise him by showering him with 12 ickle plushies for fun. ^-^

So, if any of you out there have a McDonald's toy of Mr Impossible, or know anyone else who might have or know someone who might have, one (or indeed, more), please contact me.

I'm willing to pay for them, of course, providing the price isn't too much. ^^;; I need lots of these, remember. And I'm not exactly rich as-is.

So please, check if you can. Maybe a friend might have one? A family member maybe? Friend of a friend? Friend of a friend of a friend? XP

Thanks for reading.

And yes, I've been checking on eBay.

Barber from Quiggin's
After Quiggin's closed, the gents' hairdresser upstairs moved to a new shop above a shoe shop at the top end of Bold St.
Any idea if he is still there as I haven't been that way in ages?

I've just joined, so I thought I'd introduce myself and also post something that may of interest to some of you.

Okay, so I'm Sam, I'm 25 (though I hardly act it - hehe) and I've been living in Liverpool about three months now. I'm into fun! Anime, video-games, music, theme parks, drawing... but you can check out my Live Journal User Information for everything else, I guess.

So, what may I have that could be of interest? Well, I'm currently renting a room in a house just on the Liverpool/Kensington border and there's a room going free right now. It's £55 a week for a single person or £65 a week for a couple. All the bills (cept the internet which is £10 a month extra) are included. Unless people use the electricity stupidly like leaving lights on needlessly or putting just one or two items into the wash everytime, etc. Then we'll have to share whatever's over the landlord's budget.

We have 4 bedrooms all together, and a shared kitchen and shared bathroom/toilet. We also have a small patio thingy.

We're walking distance from the City Centre and close to the University Hospitol too. There's also a park (or two, I think) near-by and quite a few shops in either direction too.

If anyones's interested; lemme know and I'll give you the landlord's number.

Sorry to use my first post like an advertisement, but I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone, etc.

Laundry in North Liverpool?
Can anybody recommend a launderette in North Liverpool (like Bootle or Crosby areas) where I can drop off my laundry and then pick it up again later, washed and maybe ironed? I'm getting fed up with drying racks in my lounge and think it might save my sanity to just get someone else to do most of it for me.

I've never really gone to a launderette here, so I don't know what would be a good price or who would be least likely to ruin my clothes. :-) Any suggestions?

Hey people,

I'm looking for a nice green tea set as a present - does anyone have any good ideas where I might get a nice selection, maybe somewhere up in China town?

Organic Produce Deliveries
Does anybody know of a company that delivers organic (and preferably locally grown) produce boxes on a weekly or bimonthly basis? I know schemes exist in other areas of the country, but I haven't found one locally.

Thanks in advance. :-)
