I find it very cute that you answered your own poll. In case you forgot what food you like to eat. :)
I was just setting a good example!
Oh heck. I SWEAR I clicked 'I will cry bookless tears' and yet it's still telling me that no one voted that way.
But believe me, I'm a-crying. Saturday is the only day in the sodding week I always work, which I suspect makes me a rubbish bookswap candidate (do you ever have them on Sundays?)
It currently thinks you may be coming but have family issues. If you click on Poll #1339863
and then on 'Fill out poll' it should let you rechoose your answers.
Oh no! It has always been on a Saturday but I guess there's no reason why it couldn't be on a Sunday in future. Pipe up when we're planning next year!
I'm really sorry you can't make it though - you're one of the few people in the comm I've never met, and I'd really like to!
you're one of the few people in the comm I've never met, and I'd really like to!
That's probably BECAUSE you've never met me :)
I shall shout loudly about the joy of Sundays next year!
OH NO! I was hoping you might really actually be coming! But I and the kids will be in London on Sunday too...
And maybe, if the weather is ok, maybe going to the world's greatest playground, complete with Pirate Ship?
I am fussy in so many ways, but I will just not eat stuff I don't like and not expect anyone to cater to my whims. That sounds hideously passive-aggressive, but it's not meant to!
What time are you anticipating starting? I'm coming down in the morning, and there is a half eight train that gets me to Euston for about 11am. I'm trying to work out whether to make the sacrifice of sleep and attempt the 7.30, or resign myself to being too late for the first pickings!
Well we normally have people arriving from 11am, but if you get into Euston for 11am you could be here for 11.30 and I promise we wouldn't start without you!
Excellent. I shall go for the 8.30 then.
I cannot believe I wrote 'pouring over books' in that handy guide. *grumpily edits*
One of the things that makes me happiest in life is people who point out to the world some incredibly silly mistake they've made themselves :)
*is imagining pouring milk over books*
*also makes incredibly obvious mistakes at annoying moments*
Yeah, well, in THIS group I figured I'd better 'fess up. I'm sure someone noticed at the time but was far too polite to mention it. :)
Because of daft holiday scheduling, I can't come. Boo :(
And wow, that looks like it's almost a bookswap's worth of books, as it is! :-)
Mushrooms. And truffles, but this time I don't think we need to worry about the truffles.
I imagine that we will not be overburdened with olives, liquorice or bananas?
Let me know if you need food brought, and I will do a repeat run of the Anzac biscuits you did not get to eat last weekend.
Very inspiring, I think I may organize one here (San Francisco Bay Area)
