Four-minute warming - shadows of echoes of memories of songs — LiveJournal
Four-minute warming
As per earlier warning, we're having a housewarming party on Saturday January 27th. That's this Saturday, from, ooh, about party o'clock.

Partners/children/friends welcome. There will be some drinks but mostly Weird Shit From The Back Of The Cupboard so if you want to guarantee that a sane drink will be available you're probably best bringing it yourself. There will be nibbles and (if I have time to bake it) cake, and in case of Munchies Emergencies the Co-op is about 30 seconds' walk from our house and stays open until 11pm.

There may be Singstar if enough people want to and enough other people don't mind.

addedentry has spent the last two weeks writing an exhaustingly exhaustive guide to finding our house. If you get lost, phone us (if you don't have a number and want one, ask).

Any other questions that I've failed to pre-empt, ask!

I'm hoping to make it - I'm considering cycling some or all of the way; but this would make me liable to arrive all sweaty & unpleasant. Would there be any chance of borrowing yr shower & a towel on arrival?

borrowing yr shower

So long as you bring it back, sure. :-) Though, er, blimey. Good luck, especially if it's snowing by then as predicted...

Open to all?

(It's just I would have expected some friends-locking, that's all.)
j4 From: j4 Date: January 22nd, 2007 03:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
You're invited, if that's what you mean. :-) But I don't do locked posts. (The last two change-of-address posts and all previous party invite posts were public, too.)

I have your address, but none of the invitation posts contain it (so I've just had to look up your postcode in my PDA to work out a route).

Party o'clock = six in the morning, right?

I am disproportionately amused by the fact that the previous comment is a warning that I may be providing too much information about my whereabouts to the world, while your comment chides me for not providing enough.

If you're still not sure where we are, ask. If you are sure where we are, just don't tell the terrrists or that nasty Peter Files off the internets, okay?

We are considering it, though being on a course all day may prevent me. If so, too bad - I don't get to see two ace people nearly often enough.

I think I'm not going to make it, as it happens. Have a good party!

I would love to come but I have to be up reasonably early on Sunday (and in suitably bright-eyed-bushy-tailed state to talk on lunchtime radio for an hour) so I think a jaunt to Oxenforde might be beyond me :(

Erm, I'll be there; I shall try and bring some friends. But I shall also aim for a nightbus home, so I won't be crashing.

as hinted at

Now I'm confused -- if you've already asked for crashspace then I'm really sorry but I didn't see it! Can probably manage 2 sq ft of space but not much more... it may be a bit of a squeeze I'm afraid.

Gah. I wanted to come to this, but I had to go to Nottingham at short notice on Friday to look after a poorlygirl, so I stood my clubmates up at short notice, I think clearing off again might be rude, and I may have company myself. Umm. I Will Come To Oxford Soon!
j4 From: j4 Date: January 23rd, 2007 04:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's a shame! But I hope poorlygirl is wellgirl again soon, & you're always welcome to come and visit...

Okay.... I shall see you down there, probably with a bottle of Mr. Gordon's finest mothers' ruin. Would you be able to find room for a half-house-trained northerner who's not too worried about the badgers biting?

Would you be able to find room

Eeek, I didn't realise you were wanting crashspace (I think I read yr comment on the previous post as saying that you were going to be staying down south anyway, so sort of assumed you were staying elsewhere, IYSWIM). Um... I think we're probably struggling-to-fit-people-in already, to be honest. Er, argh. Sorry. :-( Is that going to mean you can't make it, or do you have a backup plan?

Cool. Has yr hearing recovered from last night yet? :)

Owen doesn't mention the U1 buses on his page, these would be that ones that people with X5 combined Stagecoach tickets would use. They stop on the bottom of Westminster Way, in the same place as the 4s that turn that way. That's a point, he doesn't mention the fact that some 4s will turn up westminster way.

Sorry I can't make it though.

Just noticed that the 100 is Stagecoach and mentioned.

Am I being deeply dumb? I see no house number, and the prospect of arriving at Elms Parade and yelling "Oi Janet!" until either you notice me or the police turn up to cart me off for being a public nuisance is unappealing.

Well, I have your mobile number, anyway.
j4 From: j4 Date: January 30th, 2007 11:28 am (UTC) (Link)
I am being dumb for not checking comments/email sensibly. We posted the address when we moved, but didn't put it on the directions as well... thought that people would have our address if they were reading our LJs... Er. Glad you found it anyway!
