My weekend

Ok - so most of the rest of you who were there and have LJ have already written all of this - and small-world syndrome means that unless I keep balancing I'll fall off.

No, that's not right.

Erm, "and small-world syndrome means that most of you are so bored about reading this that you'll already have gone away."

Anyway, my take on the shared experience can best be expressed in a series of :

<ul>
<li> Jolly nice choocy cake. Thanks to the chef <lj user="seuleange"> and the recipe consultant <lj user="nortysarah"> </li>
<li> <a href="http://uk.imdb.com/Title?0268380">Not-very-good</a> and <a href"http://uk.imdb.com/Title?0246544">OK</a> ("Go off my son and learn how to interact with <a href="http://uk.imdb.com/Name?Moran,%20Nick">mockney</a> musketeers and fight on ladders with <a href="http://uk.imdb.com/Name?Roth,%20Tim">typecast</a> baddies") videos. At least the last one would have had a 2.5 on the Harry film scale and had <a href="http://uk.imdb.com/Name?Treacher,%20Bill">Arfur</a> from Eastenders in it leching over Mena Suvari. (Rather than sitting in his shed on the allotment). Oh, and the Richelieu was delightfully understated compared to "HELLO, I'M TIM CURRY STARRING AS TIM CURRY" of a <a href="http://uk.imdb.com/Title?0108333">previous</a> effort. Phew. That was an effort - and Kat - that's what too much IMDB can do for you... </li>
<li> Louth was quite pleasant, even if it was a bit chilly and I started developing allergies to Christmas fayres. Oh, and to anyone who doesn't know - even I could tell that the back of a lorry can't offer the same acoustics as a nicely designed hall for singers. Stop. Please. Now. </li>
<li> John and Womble can cook. </li>
<li> Cheese Salads are not cheap in the pubs of Lincolnshire. Maybe they have to import the lettuce. And the cheese. </li>
<li> <a href="http://www2.louthtoday.co.uk/inc/v3/sites/technoted/default.htm">Techno Ted</a> rulez! So it wasn't a Dom Joly gag after all... </li>
<li> Skegness hasn't changed in the last 5 years. Mind you it probably hadn't changed in the previous 50 either... </li>
<li> Jane is still lovely! She will go to Omega, oh yes!</li>
<li> <lj user="winterdrake"> is more than just "I recognise that name - didn't you too sell part of your soul to the LT?" </li>
<li> Always check the battery of your car before going out for a drive. </li>
<li> Grantham is on the way from London to Skegness. Cheers <lj user="jfs"> </li>
<li> <lj user="jimfer"> doesn't keep milk in. Not that I had time to drink much of the coffee anyway. </li>
<li> <lj user="lupercal"> is the guardian of parrt of our national security. But a jolly nice chap. Though that still won't mean I won't be watching him at NWO. In fact, he can worry more as I'll be able to recognise him... </li>
<li> Leicester is on the way from Nottingham to Birmingham </li>
<li> You can buy a 24 piece cutlery set for £5.99 </li>
</ul>
I'm sure I learnt some other valuable lessons, but the sheer poor-quality of the episode of Next Gen on TV at the moment is distracting me.
</lj-cut>

In other news - job reference has been written. Current boss's PA has resigned so cheerily copied me in on it so I can shortly read just what I'm really like - apparently...
