I'm probably not going to make it at all this weekend.  Other pre-start-of-term stuff is probably more important. :(

Hopefully future conventions will be timed slightly more conveniently. :)

Me and Sam just walked back home via the town centre. He wanted a cheeseburger from MacDonalds so we popped in. I asked for two and said don't bother with a bag as we'll take them in just the wrapper. The lass turned around, picked up two cheeseburgers and (yes you know what's coming next) placed them into a brown bag.

What is the FUCKING point >:( >:(

If you don't completely disengage your brain when working in a place like McDonalds you go insane in fairly short order.   :P

I bruised my heel earlier, which is going to make the 20 minute walk home more than a little uncomfortable (and probably more than 20 minutes).

I read Dawnthief by James Barclay in the last 36 hours or so, which is brilliant fantasy.  Comes highly recommended.

I'm 21 and have hair that reaches my shoulder blades.  I'm beginning to lose it on top though. :'(

Hmm, this reminds me, we need a new battery for one of our smoke alarms.

We have a couple, and the downstairs one (nearest the kitchen) still works fine.  It's just the one at the top of the stairs (nearer our rooms) that has died.

Thanks, all!

Just picked up and read my prog.  It was unexceptional (i.e. brilliant).

I read the first of the Blackest Night: Batman's the other day, and really enjoyed it.  Think I'm going to have to check out more of Blackest Night (though I might have to wait for the trades).

I think you three should all make out.

Define 'you three'.   :-\

Don't define 'make out'.

Touché.


Wait, don't do that either.


Yes it does - if he's not contributing why should he have a say in its allocation? It's not even as if he's paying the going rate somewhere else what with his off shore corporations. How many stupid hats does he need?

No taxation without representation goes both ways, self rightious prick - him not you.

Well, 'no taxation without representation' normally refers to being taxed without having a representative in the legislature that sets the taxes.  He doesn't have a say in its allocation through the legislature, merely by the force of his argument.  And surely if his arguments are solid, it shouldn't matter whether he is Irish or not, let alone whether he pays Irish taxes or not, those arguments should be put to the Irish government.

On the other hand, I suppose you can be right and a tosser.  :P

Bit like Bonio lecturing the Irish government on their foreign aid policy only to have it pointed out to him by the Prime Minister that he doesn't pay any taxes. What a tosser.

Does his not paying taxes make his point any less valid?

Given that I was only alive for the last two and a half years of Baroness Thatcher's prime ministership, I have no real opinion of her.

I'm just waiting for a confirmation e-mail!

And we're confirmed. Unfortunately, the Paypal shopping cart for the BICS tickets seems to be on the blink now. I can get tickets on the door, can't I?
As I understand it, you definitely can't pick up pre-bought tickets on the door.  I don't know about buying them on the door.

Erm ... I just purchased a couple of tickets via paypal (well, a few days ago). So they'll be sent out to me will they - clueless newbie here, have mercy! I thought I read somewhere that if you show your paypal receipt on the door you can get in that way, but I might have that wrong. Now I'm worried that they won't arrive in time and I won't be able to get in!
Yeah, you print the Paypal receipt, that is your ticket.  I just wanted to ensure that Jim hadn't bought tickets before Paypal started playing up, and was hoping to pick them up on the door.

Apologies for any confusion.
