So circling we'll orbit another year

It's my birthday. So I'll take the opportunity to look back, stock take, and generally waste time, because people really should have to work on their birthdays.

Seven things I'm glad I've done this year:-

1. Painted my room
2. Taken my social life in hand
3. Bought a corset
4. Got a really good haircut
5. Avoided killing Ian
6. Survived BiCon
7. Gone to Amsterdam

Seven things I wish I hadn't done this year (but I'm going to forgive myself for - this is just for reference so I can try and avoid doing it again...)

1. Volunteered for BiCon 2002
2. Spent so much on things I don't need
3. Missed going to Dublin
4. Gone to Milton Keynes
5. Gone totally radge and broken stuff
6. Upset David
7. Did I mention the BiCon thing?

Seven things I'm glad I've done in my life so far:-

1. Been to Venice
2. Changed my name
3. Moved to Edinburgh
4. Written some stories
5. Run Bifrost
6. Run BiCons 10 and 17
7. Stayed on the dole so long

Well, I'm so glad glad glad to be alive (as Pollyanna used to say) Happy birthday! I hope you got the CD.

BiCon was much better for you having been involved. Thank you again. You annoyed me too at times of course, but I think the result of the (fewer than it sometimes seemed) arguments was right each time.

Is Milton Keynes down to the travel nightmares, or what happened there?

Travel nightmares and having spent annual leave on it when it wasn't a proper holiday. of course if I hadn't volunteered for bicon, it would have happened anyway...

And I got a strange Don Giovanni CD some time ago which I kept forgetting tosay thanks for - sorry. It's certainly very odd...

It might not be the best sung version I have (or complete, the CD omits about half the songs plus all the dialogue) but it is the one in English...

What can I say? It's a odd plot.

Upset David

I'm not arrogant enough to assume this means me, but if it does, its mere inclusion on the list pretty much means it's fixed as far as I'm concerned. (Not that I'm saying there's a lot to fix if it doesn't mean me.)

I only know one David (oddly enough - the rest are all Daves) I'm glad you think it's OK...

Cool.

In case it's not obvious, 'It's fixed as far as I'm concerned' does not mean I'm assuming it's OK with anyone who isn't me, nor that I don't care if it isn't fixed with anyone else.

Happy Bithday...

Personally, I can take or leave Dublin, but I realise most people disagree with me.

Dublin may not be great, but I bought plane tickets and then didn't go, which I regret.

Happy Birthday

To the woman who is the reason why I am a piglet -
Have a brilliant day.

Regret cannot be with you as I am helping hold someone's hand on Saturday and helping warm a baby on Sunday.

But here's birthday kisses xxx
