meat and drink
Headed down to Oxfnord on Friday for J-P and Kate's party -- good fun, but very busy so there was a lot of standing in the corridor. Lovely to see J-P and Kate though, as well as other people who I very rarely see -- the boy Lanyon (who has cut off all his floppy hair!), ex-mert0034 (who has grown a beard!), and Colin Bedroom Batchelor (who hasn't changed at all). I think Kate and I confused everybody by inventing lots of made-up science and making animal noises.

Saturday was the uk.misc meat, which was jolly good fun. juggzy played Richard Thompson songs on recorder, lots of people drank beer, The Lurker lurked, and smallclanger made cute noises at everybody. The weather stayed dry (though it threatened rain fairly persistently for the first couple of hours) and warm enough to sit on the meadow until about 8pm. The Angel & Greyhound lied when they said they served food till 9pm.

Threw bread to ducks and geese and goslings on Sunday. The goslings were cute, but they grow up to be big hissing geese, which is not so good. The ducks were just lovely. When I grow up I want to keep ducks.

But big hissing geese are delicious.

Sorry I didn't make the misc meet in the end. Turned out to be too complicated. However, we have new kittens arriving soon.

Ducks will break your heart. They will come to you as adolescents in the first flush of ducky love. You will agonize with them all through the rape scenes that substitute for duck shagging. You will cheer when they finally bring their little ducklings for a paddle in the water bowl. Your heart will sink as the numbers of ducklings reduce daily. And finally, your heart will shatter when you realise that you haven't seen them for a week, and that the RSPB have been seen around the village carrying big Fuck Off Duck Killing guns.

And you will swear never to love ducks again.

Don't believe <fx: checks> her. Ducks are wonderful and floaty and wobbly and cute and ducklings make the sweetest cheep-cheep-cheep noises.

LA LA LA LA I HAVE MY HANDS OVER MY EARS AND CANNOT HEAR HER. BUT I STILL CAN HEAR THE DUCKLINGS.
