Since I'm one of the speakers, no doubt Brighton will be paying my travel expenses. I could just give you the money without telling them. cool

Bollocks. embarrassed

Nah, it's more like a pay-to-play situation. wink

Seriously tho Jason, come on down you know it'd be fun. Come a bit earlier and I'll take you to the best chocolate cake shop in the world. Ever. With no competition.

WHAT?? I thought i found that in Amsterdam! Shoot, Jack, i would come down for that - not that you are inviting me! sad - and may even take a passing interest in the workshop wink but i have social plans for this weekend now that i made to make up to myself the sheer disappointment of not being able to afford to go to Projectile in Newcastle which is also this weekend - another rival for the affections of this event. wink

Well done for organising this JK - I would pop down if i didn't have plans! smile

Love

I'll take you to "choccywoccydoodah" another day LW, although the cake isn't actually that nice; it's all about the chocolate dipping pots.

Now as for Saturday, I just have to decide what I hate more out of football and politics.
I've only got a few days to think of an excuse to not go to this (and co-write the womens struggles presentation embarrassed)

Thanks Jess tongue - Even the name sounds amazing - even if the cake isn't quite as good as Jack is trying to make out, it still sounds like a valid one-off gastro experience within my favoured cake genre. cool

Is that the one with those huge statues made of chocolate? IT always looked a bit too much to me.

And then tried to toss me off in the toilet. On the wrong side of a picket line.

;)

I'm just going for the full sweep of badness. Next I'm going to dismember a black wheelchair user.

At least I'd get support for the dismemberment.

I would have tried to toss you off, but to honest it looked like a car crash down there, I wouldn't have known where to start.

You were at the same meeting? wink

Cheers to Saath london, especially to the button for his talk on Workplace organising which was pretty damn good! If you need a manager...

I missed the rest which was a shame, hope it all went as well.

I second this - well organised and a welcoming atmosphere.

Apart from the chants of scab every time I tried to talk, obviously.

I tried to blend my breakfast smoothie before properly waking up. :(

That doesn't explain the cat fur.

I wouldn't worry, I'm rubbish in the flesh, I used to be agoraphobic so sometimes the fact that I'm sitting in the same room as people I don't know is a result, I wouldn't expect scintillating conversation.

Don't destroy the myth... angry wink

You sound well scary - may as well trade on it. cool wink

On a more serious note I hope to meet you at some point too - you started a thread about peak oil shown at an HSG night - may see you at one of those eves - was hoping to go tonight - a heavy eve's viewing about Palestine and had a travelcard and stuff but have had a rough 24 hours and am tuckered so it will have to wait.. sad
Hope to see you there one day - you get around a bit which is good . cool (not meant in the same kinda way as Ginger and Steggsie you understand wink )

You could always come along to the Social Ecology London meetings?
See how subtle my organising skills are. wink

I need to get to the Haringey film nights more, though I didn't make any friends there last time. When I'm not scabbing I'm supporting petroleum fueled civilisation or something.

Try to get along to the pub afterwards if you want a chance to get to talk to people, although I have to say the one I went to I got bored hanging around and I knew a few of them already. smile
If you go to an actual HSG meeting then they're very friendly, the discussion evenings are usually pretty interesting.
Does that mean you're from Haringey as well?

if we're keeping score of being wrong them I have to point out your score is considerably higher than that, in fact there's no way I can catch up. Congratulations you won!

Oh puh-lease!!

Everyone knows men are far more scared of women than women are of men! Women are the new men.. and the new women.. It is good but tiring!! wink

And i am rarely wrong tho not willing to indulge in male type cockwaving sessions on minor matters to prove a point in which by so doing i would lose my true masculinity AND femininity...cool wink
