Reasons to be cheerful #872
Being away from LJ and indeed the internet, combined with the pressure of actually doing a real job for a change has a number of consequences. Today's is that my utter inability to respond promptly to the press paperwork means I might not get to Infest this year. Ooops.

So I join the ranks of the great unwashed waiting, rather hoping for either a football team and a half of cancellations or to somehow find a ticket.

Rude words have been said at myself :-/

Love/money/prints/kind words/sarcasm offered in exchange.

Have you considered signing, scanning the form and then e-mailing it? That would surely make the deadline...

According to Lee that's not the issue - they're simply ~full~ so no more bodies in the building :-(

I agree with you - but of course that's a long way from persuading anyone else and actually managing it.

It's my own dumb-ass fault taking it for granted and not being organised enough :-(

Getting in while others are outside won't be that great a plan. Have you tried getting those wristbands off in 1 piece?

However... There is a SMALL possibility that you can buy mine.
I've already promised it to a friend if she couldn't get a ticket, but the stupid cow lost her phone so I'm waiting for her to email me.

IF she has a ticket, assuming I have a press pass cos they haven't said "no" then my ticket is yours at cost. After all the help you've given me it's the least I can do.

Hopefully the delay in her messaging me is fate preventing me from giving the ticket to someone else.

I'll let you know soon as I do.

Here's hoping :)

Today is your lucky day! I have access to a spare ticket! I was going to flog it on ebay for an outragous sum, but you can have it at face value.

That is most wonderful. Consider yourself showered in goodwill and if you like - pictures of yourself blue.

And possibly a lift too...

I'm all good for lifts, but thanks! If you manage to take some photos of me where I don't look either:

a) retarded; or
b) like a convict

then that will all be good. You coming out to Chaos Ball tomorrow? It's where all the cool kids go now.

Nitzer Ebb in Sheffield tomorrow - also seeing KIK - it'll be just like going to Edwards...

Is the Chaos Ball a Barton Arms job? When suits you for cash/shiney exchange? Then I can rest easy!

It's at the Sanctuary, but the Legion DJs only play every other week. Picking up the ticket at Chaos Ball, so as soon after as possible really. Off to a goth BBQ in Leicester Saturday afternoon and staying the night, but apart from that I'm good for a catch up and maybe a drink?

I think I'm RPing on Sunday, but will try and catch up with you soon! I really appreciate this.

Hurrah; see you there!
childeric From: childeric Date: August 2nd, 2007 09:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
Really hope you get one, although judging by the comment above you would seem to have! Look forward to seeing you there.

Well thank god you've got a ticket. I can't believe how many people I know have left it too late!
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: August 3rd, 2007 10:36 am (UTC) (Link)
I like to think I left it too late in a very special way!
spiked_n_bloody From: spiked_n_bloody Date: August 3rd, 2007 02:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Now that you have a ticket do you think Lee will let you swap it for a press pass? It'd be a shame not to get in the pit.
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: August 3rd, 2007 02:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have already asked. I'm hopeful it won't be a problem as the issue was venue capacity.

So, where are the photos from Infest 2007? I'm interested to find out what the pics are like form your new toy. How is the new camera?

I'm thinking about a 40D until the 5Dmk II comes along - that's assuming the 5D replacement has > 3fps *crosses fingers*

I actually had a new toy @ Infest myself; a 70-300 DO I.S. I bought it as a travel lens instead of the Sigma 70-200, which is too big/heavy to drag round whilst sight-seeing.
