I can't speak for Marwood, but I'm already terrified! I can't meet them in the real world, the universe would implode!

Fail is not an option. Be scared, be very scared
You will feel accomplished the day after. The minute after. We can go for some drinks before if you want.

Under no circumstances will I drink before!! I might a) wee myself b) start sobbing uncontrollably or c) get totally overconfident and tell James that I love him! Neither is an option. If it can't be avoided, I'll play the "I'm only here to take pictures for my mate"-card.

There's nothing terrifying about meeting them, they're just normal people (apart from Nicky who I've always found a bit intimidating ). But seriously, they're alright. I've met James on a number of occasions and he's always very warm and friendly to everyone who talks to him.

Facts:

First time I met James was at his Camden Barfly solo gig in 2006. He asked what my name was, so I told him. His response was "I'm James!". LIKE I DIDN'T KNOW THAT ALREADY!!

First time I met Nicky was when I saw the band record a live performance of Let Robeson Sing for CD:UK in 2001. James had buggered off in a car, I had already met Sean and Nicky was the last to come out. A load of people I met in the queue were waiting by the main entrance and I decided to take my chance round the side. We had a mutual agreement that if we saw him we would flag it up somehow. So Nicky comes out of the door nearest to me, I start having a chat to him and get my picture taken with him. For some stupid reason, then have a strange fit and start flailing wildly to get the attention of the others! Nicky's response was "Ohhhhh.... no.... why did you do that for?!". Cue masses of girls running towards Nicky, culminating in my very quick exit from the scene

True, for some reason I am a bit scared of Nicky too! Always have been.

Ah, I'd love to meet them but THE NERVES. And then what if they're too human? Can't worship something human...

Don't worry, there is NO WAY Wire is fully human!

Argh, I was really hoping to get an hour or two of sleep before the gig but it just ain't happening, and my knees are throbbing from being squished up in the coach all night. Add in the toe and ear that I knackered at the Dublin gig, and tonight could be difficult...

Still. Going to get myself ready, track down a Costa and have a nice pot of tea, then head over and see how the queue is doing.

Tonight I will be mostly wearing my lovely army officer's jacket with the big gold buttons, a Lifeblood tee, hugely inappropriate flares, and my increasingly grubby leopard print converse. If people spot me tonight, say hello! And if you're of a decent height, please make yourself available to lean on when I'm flagging in the second half

Agree with Ulrike, don't worry... The Wire is not human.

e) I drag Marwood along and you don't wait in the car, because you will be clutching a cuddly James...

There's a Costa in Broadmead, going from the mall towards Cabot Circus, near the Mountain Warehouse. There's a few Nero's nearer the Hall, by ST Nicholas Market. And a Subway near the waterfront.

I just tore through the heel of my favourite Fozzie Bear socks. I'll have to go with my reserve Kermits now. TONIGHT IS DOOMED.

Broadmead it is, then. Less than ten minutes away. Cheers!
