Dear LR

Seeing as this is your special do and you are coming all the way to London just for this roll eyes roll eyes thought we could arrange some entertainment for you! tongue I can't sing, but I can dance a bit! Would you like us to put on a skit? John can do his piece of invisible

street theatre. Jef can provide a tragi-comedic monologue on his lost opportunities with women. John can distribute the popcorn from the trendy popcorn maker his last boss gave him. Maybe Alan can thrash around a bit to an imaginary anarcho-punk track! Anyway, let me know this and any other special entertainment requirements you may wish to elicit from your fellow much-loved posters. wink

Warmest Regards

In Anticipation

LW X

Actually, my head is the only part of my body that isn't covered in a luxuriant coat of hair. sad

Mind you, the hair on my shoulders is long enough to fashion some kind of rudimentary comb-over. 8)

It is a long way, although I have a number of errands to run in the capital on Friday and Saturday that mean that LibCom drinks cannot claim a monopoly on my goals.

I read that as “skirt”. I’m trying to get my Mrs to wear skirts more often, I think she stopped about a year ago.

Love

It's not tragic, you need a hero for that.

Ftony.. Um..it's actually hope springs eternal, but I kinda like your version! Jef - Who says you are not a hero? Is it because you are a librarian? Never fear - there is a cheesy film called, bizarrely: "The Librarian: Quest for the Spear!" It stars Noah Wyle embarrassed (who John prob fancies!) and is about a Supergeek guy who gets a position at an amazing British Museum type library. Turns out he has to guard these precious artefacts e.g. Spear of Destiny from the evil ninjas who would use it to Do Evil. SG has to then become an Action Hero in the vein of a young Indiana! So you see there is hope! And he teams up with a less intellectual physical heroine and all round Woman of Action who I would certainly wish to identify with, so fret no more Jef! (Though I know you secretly love all this self-absorbed angst! wink )

John - Soz - forgot the wink after Wyle so here it is now: wink

But you have to agree - Jef is the King of Angst-Ridden Self-Absorption, eh? wink

Um, actually insulted Alan on a recent light thread, thinking he was implying I was a non-intellectual soft target. But I was wrong and he was writing about himself. So..um.. embarrassed Threatened to put my knee in his groin at the drinks thing! eek Ftony, will you be in attendance (at the drinks night, not threatened knee/groin incident, that is). And Lazy himself incurred my wrath when I caught him out in lying to me. This seemed to make him fonder of me.. confused wink

ah, perhaps i'll be going...

i'll be doing some frantic work for my dissertation in May, so i will have to remain a wooly fence-sitter until nearer the time.

it would be nice to (knowingly) meet some libcommers in real life. as far as i know i've only ever met thora and that was for five minutes while i drunkenly asked her what insurrectionism is. i still don't quite know. should read some zerzan i guess.

i certainly now know NOT to insult the wolf...

although, we're yet to see whether you're quite this scary wink

Thora's a Lady, she'd get Refused to challenge him to a duel.

Will do my best but I am pretty much a hermit term time! So much planning and shit plus I'm currently putting together a phd proposal so a life is on the backburner!

That said I've only 2 months left in london (jesus time flies) so it'd be pretty shit if I didn't make an effort before I go!

If I can't make this we'll have to out for a curry soon or something - anyone fancy that?
