That Friday feeling...

We're halfway through the day and the weekend is almost here! Chum #1 is working 'til 22:00hrs on the literature festival so I shall have the duty of picking up the dogges from the grandparents (it is a duty rather than a joy because they do not like my car. Henry only has two doors, whereas the Chum's car has four  which means the collies have their own door onto the back seat. (They also have their own electric window button which Mama Bear uses whenever she gets too hot.) When I walk Baby Bear out and he see's it's my car he tries to run back into the house. ::sniff:: I could take it personally.)

Anyway, I have another four-and-a-bit hours before the end of the work day and then it's dogges! washing up! dogges! & cat! (the feeding of)revisions! dogges! (the walking of), and then it will be sleep - hopefully early because I'll be up at 06:30 to take the dogs out for another walk before heading off to alt.fiction for the day.
Lunchtime tomorrow should be interesting as the Quad is near the Big (TV) Screen and, according to East Midlands Today, there's going to be a demonstration there to protest  the fact that the council won't be paying for the public to watch the World Cup on it. Police, cordons etc. Let's just hope that they're either not too rowdy or that the Quad has got good soundproofing. The last time I went to alt.fiction I attended a panel by jemck , Sarah Ash, desperance (and someone else?) and they had to compete with the Ladyboys of Bangkok singing in a tent outside! With any luck it'll be quieter this year.

Anyone else going to alt.fiction tomorrow? I still haven't decided which panels I'm going to so that will have  to be added to the jobs list - something to discuss with Chum#1 when she gets home.

People demonstrate against the absence of free football? *blinks* Can't they find something that, y'know, would speak better of them? (Don't get me wrong, I am all in favour of free football: but my activism I reserve for other causes.)

Well, well. I'll be around tomorrow.

Saw you in the panel on 'Slash & hack vs sparkly vampires'. The set-up at the Quad was really nice I thought - much better than the Assembly rooms were last time (the chairs were more comfy for a start!)

I didn't stay for the movie double bill though - getting old, I needed to go home for a nap! :-P

That all sounds quite feisty and rather glamorous.

Ah, yes. The glamour...let me show you it. ::sigh:: Baby Bear did try to run back into the house when he saw it was my car and then sulked all the way home once I had him parked on the back seat. I could feel persecuted. ;-P
