Getting a place on the show is kind of a weird procedure; it involved a phone interview including questions like 'Do you have any sort of disability or ethnicity? I take it no, you sound white.' *splutter*
I've also just got back from an interesting trip to Dublin. The short version is that I very much enjoyed getting to see NZ, who is her usual bouncy self. And I enjoyed spending the evening with pseudomonas in Edinburgh on the way back. And before the Dublin adventure I had a really really lovely weekend with lethargic_man, and we spent some time with LC as well as in eachother's company.
