Breakfast and things

Greetings to all the LiveJournallers who’ve managed to figure out the comments system here! (and to those who haven’t, keep banging the rocks together clicking on the “Add” button guys :-))

Someone left a private comment asking what the logo on the bags looked like. I wasn’t sure whether you meant the logo on the bags we made for Christchurch, or this year’s logo. Anyway, here’s the Christchurch 05 logo:

and here’s the Wellington 07 logo:

Otakuu is in Christchurch this weekend, so she arranged to meet me, lytteltonwitch, awhina, and meerkitten in town for breakfast.

My bus got into town a bit earlier than I expected, so I filled in the time walking down to the ESOL Home Tutoring offices, so I know where I’m going on Tuesday (I always do that when I’ve got an interview – I’m paranoid about being late because I couldn’t find the right place). It’s about 10 minutes walk from the bus exchange, so I should be able to get there in plenty of time.

Breakfast was fun, with lots of discussion of the upcoming convention (of course), and plenty of gossip exchanged. I passed on a couple of books, A Special Relationship by Douglas Kennedy to awhina, and Diary of a Nobody by George and Weedon Grossmith to Otakuu.

Otakuu, who’s been reading my diary (hi Otakuu!), had heard TheLetterB can’t make it tomorrow, so she’s offered her services. So we’re back to three people again, which should speed up the process greatly (a good thing, because I still haven’t got round to ironing those handles…).

After we finished breakfast and went our separate ways, I wandered around town for a while doing random errands: getting a couple of spare reels of cotton for tomorrow, a new inkjet cartridge (I’ve got a lot of books to register in the next few weeks, so I’ll be printing lots of labels), and a few bits and pieces for spot prizes at the quiz night (at this rate I’m not going to have any room in my luggage for books anyway – if you hear the Aratere has sunk on the night of 15 February, you’ll know it’s because my bags were too heavy), and going to the library (to get a couple more audiobooks, and also finding A Million Open Doors by John Barnes, which has been on my wishlist for a while). So a reasonably constructive day, even if I didn’t spend it ironing handles as planned.

  1. So, now the mystery is how the blazes do I read the comments left by others? Or can only you read them? Oh wait– I just rechecked the buttons and clicked on the most counterintuitive one, and that was it! Gah!

    Give my love to Otakuu ande lytteltonwitch when you meet up. Sounds like fun.
