Beer thirty
addedentry and I are having a birthday party at our place on Saturday May 10th. (That's not next Saturday but the one after.) I will be 30, he won't be (any more).

When: Tea/cake/faff from 3pm, proper party from party o'clock.
Where: HERE. If you don't have our address and/or you want directions, email/comment.
RSVP: would be helpful so we know vaguely how many people we're expecting.
Partners/children/friends: welcome, unless they are likely to start arguments or try to molest my badgers.
Pets: just not practical, sorry. Unless you have some very very tiny kittens.
Drinks: there will be some (including weird shit from the depths of the booze-cabinet), but more is always welcome! :-)
Eats: there will be nibbles and (if I have time to bake it) cake, and there are various vendors of munchies within spitting distance.
Spitting: not allowed, especially at our local munchies-vendors.
Smoking: also not allowed! Not even on the balcony (my birthday, my rules).
Badgers: positively encouraged (they don't count as pets).

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

And sorry for rather short notice -- lots of indecision and disorganisation round here at the moment...

ETA: and if you have suggestions for things I should do before I'm 30, feel free to post 'em here, bearing in mind I only have a week and I'll be at work for most of it...

Thanks for the invite, and we'd love to come (I've not been in Oxfnord for, oh, weeks!), but we have a previous engagement that evening.

Happy Birthsday to you both.

Am also previously engaged, I'm afraid.

Alas, prior engagements...

Nah, save your list so you have some cool things to look forward to doing once you're 30 :-)

I will be post-exams so have Absolutely Nothing Better To Do, but will just have come back from Edinburgh and will probably be Dead Of Train :-(

You have written a Will, yes?

I was feeling vaguely guilty today about being in the city and not seeing people (I have somehow found myself in the very odd position of knowing more people in Oxford than in the city where I've lived for the last 25 years), and I have no plans for that weekend. Spending an evening without spitting, smoking or starting arguments may be difficult, but I might be able to manage it. I'll have a think.

I don't think I've ever seen you spit, smoke or start an argument; if you can do all three at once then I might be persuaded to relax my rules just for the sake of seeing it. Either way, hope you can make it!

Oh dear - we'll be on the Snæfellsnes peninsula coz of honeymoonz part 2.

However all is not lost, the post fairy has been primed...

Have a great party.

I haven't been to Oxford for ages, and it'd be lovely to see you both, so I'll come down for tea and cake faff. Is there a sofa I could sleep on?

There is a sort-of-foldout-bed-thing (the actual sofabed is already claimed, I'm afraid) so I would bring a sleeping-bag if you have one (if you don't, we do, & can probably rustle up other things-to-sleep-on though some of them may be badgers). Hope none of this puts you off coming, it would be great to see you! :)

Bollocks, I'm going to be in the middle of exams and also in Manchester. Dammit.

If I come over for teacake faff then I can bring that Airport for you... This does sound like a plan.

I might have to borrow crash space, and bandwidth the next morning to try and get folk festival tickets though.
lnr From: lnr Date: April 28th, 2008 09:23 am (UTC) (Link)
*grin* I need to do that too.
lnr From: lnr Date: April 28th, 2008 09:19 am (UTC) (Link)
Mike and I will attempt to make it, and would love crash space if you can find some for us (but will also check out B&Bs). Have booked coach tickets.
j4 From: j4 Date: May 5th, 2008 10:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
You have the sofabedspace (though we won't be offended if you'd rather go for a B&B!) - look forward to seeing you! & hope the x5 isn't too miserable... :-}

My brother is exactly five days younger than you, so he's probably also doing something that day and it will be in the Cambridge area (although predictably he hasn't decided what yet). So Argh ETOOMANYBIRTHDAYS… (Also I realise I haven't got him anything yet and don't know what he wants, although I've already sorted out two other early-to-mid May birthdays.)

Things to do before you are 30: lunch? :-)
j4 From: j4 Date: May 7th, 2008 09:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm sorry I've totally failed to do lunch before being 30! You will just have to have lunch with a THIRTYSOMETHING (well, okay, thirtynothing) instead some time. :-) Though not sure when as a large proportion of my lunchtimes are being eaten up by running at the moment .... next Weds/Fri possibly free? Mail me & I will try to get myself organised.... :-}

Yay Birthday!

Yes, I will be there.
j4 From: j4 Date: May 7th, 2008 09:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hurrah! It will be good to see you, it's been far too long. :-) (Sorry I am being so slow to reply to comments....)
truecatachresis From: truecatachresis Date: April 28th, 2008 12:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Should be there.
j4 From: j4 Date: May 7th, 2008 09:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
Glad to hear it! :)
julietk From: julietk Date: April 28th, 2008 12:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
Bah, sorry, prior engagement :-(
j4 From: j4 Date: May 7th, 2008 09:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aw, shame! :( Hope you have fun whatever else you're up to anyway though...

Very sad that we can't make it—will no doubt be comparing driving from Reykjavik to Snæfellsnes with the Cambridge to Oxford run.
