meeting a lot of honeys

I loved revisiting Madame Tussauds. (It annoys me a bit that the apostrophe isn't used..) And in ~10 years there was some new faces to see, as well as lots of old friends. I suppose that's inevitable as nothing will stay the same for a decade. For example Pirates of the Caribbean had changes to One Direction, and there was a lot more younger generation actors and artists like Emma Watson and Twilight people and what not. I don't remember the Tudor representation having been that extensive either, so that was exciting. It was funny to see how my interests had sifted since the age of 13. Although I still mostly like similar things, my favourite films, books and music hasn't changed, the wax works I was more interested to see (and have my picture taken with) weren't necessarily the same. Last time I think I was much more into sports and locking arms with Michael Owen back then was the dream. I also loved Napoleon and lots of other figures in history at that time, but that may have increased a bit. I have pictures of me posing with Usain Bolt and little snaps of the Beckhams from this trip too, but clearly I love my historical and political honeys more. Blessing the peasants with my man Benedict XVI was the best thing. Then again, some things never change, and for me the highlight at Madame Tussauds will probably always be The Beatles.

Again, photos of me are by Johanna and Jenna.

I've never been before but have wanted to go for ages. I think The Beatles would probably be one of my faves as well!
