Goin home

I'm about to leave to head back to Cambridge for a few days. I plan to see my parents late tonight if they're still up, or tomorrow morning. And hatam_soferet tomorrow, pseudomonas on Friday, doseybat on Saturday and lethargic_man on Sunday, and it's all going to end up like one of those silly children's games or simple folk dances which create a long snake of people that can barely move round the room. Yay.

The other thing I'm planning to do at home is to cause my bookies to be sent to me; the estimated delivery date is 12 July. So soon my flat will feel like home (notice that the word home refers to where my library is!)

In further encouraging news, I got an email alert today saying that my broadband had been connected! And I have received a parcel containing a wireless router, various cables, an installation CD and some instructions. My new shiny computer is waiting for me chez parents, so if nothing goes wrong I should come back on Monday evening and get straight online. And then fluffymark is coming to visit.

Will probably be somewhat contactable over the next few days but I'm planning to be fairly busy. Try email, try my parents' phone number if you know it, try my (old, UK-based) mobile if you know it. Or just wait for me to come back, assuming I don't explode from squee first.

Hello! I will be in Cambridge on Sunday too. I'm seeing j4 and probably going to a gig, and it looks like you're busy too, but if there were a random chance of spontaneously overlapping, that would be fun. My mobile number is 07929 615 972 - do use it if you would like to explore possibilities. Otherwise, yay, have fun! *grin*

Yay. I will call you at a civilized hour, but the basic plan is that a whole crowd of us (myself, pseudomonas, hatam_soferet, doseybat and lethargic_man) are going to meet up in the centre of Cambridge at 10:30 on Sunday, and hang out for the afternoon. We intend to hire some punts at some point, and probably have a picnic lunch at some point. If any of that appeals to you, the hanging out or the punting or the picnic or some combination, you are welcome to join us. And you're also welcome to bring Janet (and Owen, more the merrier!) if they are interested.

We can coordinate by mobile if you don't want to commit to a particular time. The only thing I really need to know in advance is if you want to join us for punting so we don't set off without you. *bounce*

That's worth polling. Or even meme-ing.
