Panic over. The nice lady at EasyJet (Sharon) has helped me out and I am saved (even if my reputation is now going to be mud for making the mistake in the first place :p)

The problem? I'm off to Conpulsion in EDINBURGH next week. I'm really looking forward to this for a number of reasons. Firstly I have never been to Scotland in my life, secondly I get a chance to meet up with loads of friends and meet new ones, thirdly I get to do talks about the industry and general bollocks (grins), fourthly I get to see Dave for the first time since he moved out to go and live in GLASGOW.

It was this last thought that was in my sleepy brain as I was booking the tickets.

Dave lives in Glasgow. I'm seeing Dave next weekend. Dave lives in Glasgow. Glasgow.... Glasgow....

Oh look I've just gone and f**king booked a return flight to f**king Glasgow!!!

MUPPET!!!!!

PANIC!!!!!

Sramble to find EasyJets phone number, waiting (at 65p per minute!!), waiting, PANIC, I'M A MUPPET, waiting, "Hello you're through to EasyJet, my name is Sharon...."

Thank God, please HELP ME, for I AM A MUPPET!!!!!

"No problem sir..."

Fast forward a few minutes later and I'm sorted.

I am now going to EDINBURGH, and I've managed to get a later return flight on Monday too so I can hang out with malc and co on Monday mornign and actually have lunch (and recover from any hangovers).

Still, look it's Angus.....MUPPET!!!!!

Same here. We (me and luciddestiny aren't flying out until early Monday evening. It does rather allow for a nice post-con winddown (I hope). :)

Yeah, I figured relaxing a bit on Monday and 'chilling' would be good fun. Mind you my flight leaves mid-afternoon so I'll really only be around for lunch time shinanagans!

See you there...

Re: Ma-na Ma-na...
More to the point, what time are you getting in on Friday? I can pick you up from the airport in my shiny new car!

No answers to my texts, no emails, no carrier pigeons...you're not actually one of my ex-girlfriends are you? :-)

Cheers

Re: Ma-na Ma-na...
Sorry for being incommunicado, I was waiting until I had everything confirmed. I'll phone you in a bit.

As for being one of your ex-girlfriends, well, we'll talk about that AFTER next weekend :p

Malcolm is meeting me at the airport and, after dropping my stuff off at his and a bite to eat, we'll be hitting the pre-convention pub meet in town.

Conpulsion eh? As I didn't say hello in London I could say hello when your in Edinburgh :P
Are you going to be there both days? I wasn't going to go originally but I could pop in (sometime between doing silly amounts of cycling).

Yeah, I'll be around both days at the Con. I get into Edinburgh on Friday late afternoon and leave again on Monday early afternoon.
