Wanted, accomodation for one (or more) nights in the Birmingham area on this date.
Most logically with some one who is already planning to go to [livejournal.com profile] evil_chalkie's birthday soiree (so we can pour each other in and out of taxis, etc (hic) )

Friday went pleasantly with my friend Fozdyke ringing me to remind me we were doing beers that night and he would collect me. Bears had, food ated, much ranting done, oh yes :-)
Much more ranting with Sara later while not getting around to ringing for taxi.

Up "early" on Saturday to whizz off to Brum. Took longer than hoped due to NCP franchise on M1, so nipped off via M45 and then remembering I had fewer dots in Local Area Birmingham than I'd have prefered... but eventually arrived at Chez [livejournal.com profile] quondam for tea and chatting.

From there a quick visit to the Velvet Glove third world sweatshop for more tea and more chatting.

Finally to the Partee at Mr & Mrs [livejournal.com profile] evil_chalkie's new abode. Ate pizza, sold horn to eBay chap. Reprise of seeing [livejournal.com profile] quondam now with [livejournal.com profile] ruana1 and [livejournal.com profile] nyarbaggytep's R. Also dubious LT/Outcast crossover types. And others.
Drank exhotic canned pop until about midnight, drove home.

Went to bed, got up, not as early as planned... but in enough time to actually get to Tesco's and then to the Camping Exhibition. Which has just openned and thus has only half its damned stock, so no shiney new airbed for me!. Got some very Large metal spikes for ratchet strapping at Maelstrom.

What is parking like near the Custard Factory on a Saturday daytime?
In theory I only need to drop off.

I think I went there once with [livejournal.com profile] kneeshooter and met [livejournal.com profile] boglin in some veggie restaurant.

Saturday saw me chug up to Brum (at 42 mph!!) to stay with [livejournal.com profile] nyarbaggytep & R and eat chinese fud along with [livejournal.com profile] mr_cook and then to go to [livejournal.com profile] quondam's party. Which was nice.
A little warm inside so often out in the back garden.
She is a fine host and I drank a lot of Green also some Brown and some Pink.
Up in the morning like a lark (relative to other residents).
They departed to look at ... things and I hie me around the corner to see a Ferret & rant about LRP.
Joined by Karl for a while then I set to chug back home, stopping (mainly due to bordom) at Corely & W-Gap.
Home in time for 24. Rah!

I drove to Brum. And back. With no engine errata. This was good.
[livejournal.com profile] evil_chalkie's party was better :-)
Saw many people, some with LJs, some with LJ's they never use and some without.
Including the urban myth that still is Kevin Margetts; or perhaps "Kevin Margetts is, still"!
Although he did dance, so not still like that.

Lunch in the Red Lion with similar types.
Tempted the fate of ignitions and visited [livejournal.com profile] fusalys on the way home.

Busy weekend, writing Java for the RCGP with a trip to Brum for [livejournal.com profile] quondam's party in the middle.
Tuesday saw other bloke rebuilding new test server so we could test and demo changes.

Appears that (touches wood) subject to tomorrow not being 'wrong' and no printers expiring (new toner to hand) an edition of VIEW (well, REVIEW) may hit the Gathering this weekend, after "a bit of a gap"!
