Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
Just two more sets of photos to pimp, but in the meantime I'm going to take advantage of the fact that I'm not in work to do a bit of an update.

Firstly thanks to all for kind birthday messages. I feel very much of the age where a birthday becomes less of an event, so that people sent best wishes and came out last night to watch me fall asleep in my curry was appreciated. I get the impression from now until about 65 it's the wilderness years of increasing bitterness about lost youth and other opportunities.

The weekend itself was spent in a muddy field. Sometimes this is just shorthand for "LRP" but in this case it's true. Though "cold muddy field" would be more accurate. The advantage of modern/sci-fi LRP is that wearing layer upon layer of technical ski thermal is not only permissible, but advised. At least (with a nod to a Labyrinthe experience) the "cold moon" was represented by a "cold campsite" and very little imagination was required.

The game itself had a slow start for us, but Saturday picked up and there were lots of bits and pieces to play around with to keep us busy (or not). My fear of dancing kept me (literally) in the cold for brief periods but at least my reputation survived. Do spare a thought for poor bacony though who had to drink two bottles of port on her own, then was literally rained out of bed by a hole in the tent. One new crew member recruited and if the MIA ever do return it's going to be very cosy onboard.

After the game were brief moments of "Oh, I recognise your shape - you normally wear a big pointy mask" and "You made me a cake - and I have only just realised". Unfortunately these were in the car on the way home so I must try and be more observant in the future to avoid appearing rude. Thankfully being in an observant mood by this point meant that I was able to survive the driving snow and rain.

Sheffield tonight is off, which saves me some driving - so more chance to attempt to absorb my OU course by staring at the covers. I must take some more photographs (concluded over curry) but at least it's nearly time for skiing. At which point I'll disappear from LJ again but suspect few of you will notice!!!

Oh yes, photos under the cut from (other) LRP.

27 lies or Lie to me
I'm in London with work next Wednesday night and am considering going to see LotR the musical. Anyone fancy joining me?
4 lies or Lie to me
See - I'm back in the habit.

Yesterday I had an email from Country Music Television about this show where they'd like to use my pictures of Dee Snider.

Ooh, I thought - fame at last. Then they offer me $25 for "all rights". Even assuming that they mean "all rights relating to this use in the programme rather than "all rights on the images" this is pathetic. So, I say no. Bless her cotton socks the woman I'm talking to realises the offer is derisory but apparently that's what people will work for in Hollywood.

Fame will have to wait.

1 lie or Lie to me
Was mainly spent catching up. I've had a busy time and I've a busy time ahead of me. At least, with the exception of Infest and WGT (just small bodies of work then!) I'm up to date with photos and will be leaking them via LJ over the next week or so.

Beyond that, I think I'm back on LJ. Hello old friend. You've missed a lot. If not births and deaths there has been a marriage.

11 lies or Lie to me
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.
