Posted:Ed:

Indigo is seperate from blue in the rainbow.

You got your three primary colours: Red, blue, yellow. Then naturally you got your three secondary colours: Purple, orange, green. Then indigo's just like "I'm well getting in on the rainbow action", pissing off mauve, maroon and turquoise in the process. Beige is joining forces with violet and all the other colours that have been named but no one can quite agree on and are planning a coup. But SHHH!!

Oh and Bristol. Yay Bristol!

That's paint, not light, so it's all depending on whether you're looking at a rainbow or painting a picture of one.

While we're on it, WTF is "taupe" anyway?

Anybody coming by train on sat or sunday?

I remember that some years ago i used to go by bus, but i cant find the instructions on the website anymore. I mean the local bus... cos if i remember wright i had to get off in Bristol international or something like that and then get a bus that would stop where the petrol station is just next to the convention camp... (one year the bus driver was worried that i was going to get lost and whent into the camp site to drop me there at the parking of the boyscouts, haha, so nice!)

Well does anybody remember or even understand what am i talking about? How can i get that info again... because i wouldnt mind to do that and i dont have to disturb anybody...

Posted:From what i can see of the buses, it's service number 312 from Bristol PARKWAY.

it only goes every two hours, but does stop right outside the campsite, apparently.

Can't guarantee the accuracy of my words, though. 'Woodhouse park scout camp' doesn't seem to appear on any maps, but I know it's there...

Posted:Oh yes!! 312 that is the number.... but every 2 hours? on a Sunday? puff...

Any bus from Bristol temple mead or Bristol bus station to get there? Or any joly soul wanting to come to Bristol on sunday to pick me up? Is it very far away?

This time i should probably splore Bristol as in this 4 years i have never been there...

Silliness, playing, talking nonsense, consumption of intoxicant(s) of choice... Much like the whole rest of the convention really.

Oh, and the Bristol Juggling Convention poker tournament. No limit Texas hold 'em, 5 entry (well, it always has been before) - all money goes into the prize fund, number of places paying depends on how much the prize fund is. Laid Back Caf ("Alley Oop" to us old lags...) 8pm (ish)

Posted:Wahay the RAF are paying for my week at Briz. I was beginning to think there was no way I could afford it after all, when I got a phonecall asking if I was available to work this weekend... they need a fitness professional to oversee RAF recruitment testing.

Very against my ethics but terribly well paid - managed to negotiate a ridiculous amount! So I will be there with LITERAL bells on.

I'm coming down from Norwich on Monday or Tuesday from another festival, but can get a lift back to Brighton... So anyone going down with space in the car from near those places or anywhere in between? Will be happy to chip in petrol money. I don't take up much space, the name Big Zee is supposed to be ironic, honest.

You wont be the only french there... Vux is going, as is Seb. Normally you see a couple of other French as well...

I think the French are slowly invading England. They (you) are *everywhere*
