Oh neat.

I’m by no means “back”, but if I get time I might pop in every now and then.

He would.

I will not have my good name (ha!) slandered, thank you very much!

Yeah, I started a pirate RPG because I’m that sort of nerd.

And I’m pretty sure I wasn’t responsible for those songs. If it had been George Michael, maybe.

That’s quite the compliment! Unfortunately I am super slammed at work, like all the time, so don’t have the headspace for it anymore.

Being the senior on a team is hard work!

Besides, I’m more of a poetry wanker these days.

My name better not be getting taken in vain.

I survived Canada! Have been headed by work since then though.

Yay. How was it?

Apart from my car getting hit by a drunk driver, it was incredible. There were friends and Magic and DnD and dice cakes and escape rooms and Niagara Falls and wine and poutine and friends and just aaaah so much fun.

If feel I aught to as it is only 35 miles away, but its £30 for a one day event. If it were £60 for a 2 dayer I would probably balk at that as well.
 The website is awful and as vague as ever. The only names I recognise are the Newmans and Jen Williams.I have books to get signed by Emma and Jen, but it's would have to be more impressive than it looks to command that sort of money to get in at the moment. So convince me Lor why should I go to this one?

Link if anyone is interested. http://www.bristolcon.org/

Because BristolCon is the most welcoming, inclusive and fun little con going. No one is treated as an outsider, the panels are great fun and really interactive, there are reading and kaffeeklatsches and what have you for seeing authors reading, but everyone mingles in the bar. There are so many wonderful British writers there, more so than just the Newmans and Jen Williams, I'm really surprised you don't recognise more on the list. The dealers' room and the art room always have gorgeous and interesting pieces to browse round, and the games room has fun stuff to jump in and play.

The programme is always jam-packed too, the only time there is nothing planned is the hour lunch-break so the staff can eat too! It's due out soon, I'm excited to see what I'm involved in.

But really, if you think £30 is too much, nothing I say is going to change your mind. Which is mad, considering how much people will pay for cons in London.

Got a huge backlog of books now though! And need to prep for BristolCon, since I am staff there. Who else is coming to Bristol?

In all seriousness, I have a beard, but it's not even close to "impeccably groomed". I'm just lazy when it comes to that kind of thing.  :-[

Well, the 'impeccably groomed' part would be the 'still a bit aways from the truth' part of my statement. It's not so much a beard as it is a... forest of hair.

@Jmack - my dog's name is Mac.  :)

Chief, Chief, you have a great beard, shush.
Also a great dog, Mac is a wee legend! Still want to introduce him to Jeremy.

Forever Captain makes me sound ancient, but at the same time I kinda love it. Nice work, dude.

I've just finished rereading them too! Just trying to decide what to take on holiday now.

I've only just seen this thread, given I'm just back, and I am overwhelmed by how lovely and caring you all are. Good work people!

You heathens, baguette has to be eaten with butter, comté cheese and tomatoes. :)

I haven't been offline for such a long time since 2010 I think. Moving with a baby is quite the challenge and we're still living in a construction area. ;)

But it's going to be a wonderful place, so I'm not complaining. :)

Won't be much online in the next two weeks, just so you know. I will care for the contest(s) of course. :)

YOU HAVE A BABY NOW?!
