Posted:*yay*

Not long now!!

Can't wait to meet y'all!

Steph is a bloke (lives with Greg) who should be working with you winter. Looking forward to meeting you.

Yes, you can camp and the ticket price includes camping (parking is extra) - concession tickets are available for students/DSS too.

Let's arrange a daytime spin all together at some point - I'm sure we'll all meet anyway but it'd be good to get together.

Posted:I'll be there, I've really missed the Gathering these last couple of years what with the Great Welsh Disaster and getting a new job about a fortnight before the Gathering last year.

That's where I first saw a fire show, that's where I got my first, heaviest and favourite chains, and I've been waiting to take some fire back to the gathering for too long now.

Not to mention it's the loveliest, happiest, fluffiest, most committed place I could hope to spend a week, getting the hang of just being me without distractions and limitations.

Two weeks today :-)

Posted:*AHEH* Mr NYC what all this about a secretary...... have I not sent you all your diary movements for the next two months
Please take a look at my job discription then get back to me with a VERY public apology

I'm not actually going to be able to make it to the Big Green because work are PANTS . I'm told it's going to be a wicked gathering though, worth going to.

If you do want to go, then I couldnt think of a better companion than sunbeam (she be really cool you know)

Rightyo then boss, I'd better get back to planning what meeting you need to attend in September......ohh it's a hard life working for NYC

I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.

Posted:Bambam, take a memo dear:

"Dear Sunbeam,
Unfortunately, I have already made commitments to be in London on the 1st of August so I will be unable to head out on JULY 30th(I assume that was a typo of August 30). I do hope we can meet up before that.. yadda yadda yadda... Have a great weekend... etc. etc. etc...
Sincerely NYC"

Also, Ms. Bam, please do fax me my iterary for August as I seem to have misplaced it and be a dear and send a dozen roses to my wife. Oh yes... and find me a wife.

You can feel free to take the rest of the morning off as I won't be needing you until the afternoon. Get yourself a pedicure or something...

-Mr. NYC,
C.E.O. NYC-UK TOURS.


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:Not sure if I saw you burn Wintermute but I did see someone with sparkly poi on the village green. Very nice. We were doing fire poi/staff/clubs near the Small World stage on the last couple of nights. I enjoyed the hemp milk smoothie from your cafe but didn't meet you in person as far as I know.

Thanks to everyone who was there - it was a beautiful gathering.
