24 hours to go...  
So this time tomorrow I'll be in Birmingham and hopefully will be at the convention hotel (and, y'know, maybe having some kind of idea what I'll be doing there...)

I've been getting a bit antsy about the room sharing - I'm sharing with one girl on Friday and Saturday and a group (two sisters and possibly one other) on the Sunday. Up until today I was concerned about things like whether they snore loudly or hog the bathroom for hours. Today I'm seeing the posts about what happened at WinCon in '08 and a whole new set of worries has taken over. I can take care of myself, and others (actually, I'm better at the latter part than the former) but it's one of those things I wouldn't have thought about previously.

Plus, I drank too much yesterday and am still hungover. It was stupid and I won't be drinking at the weekend but right now I feel lousy...

And I haven't packed yet.

And despite thedothatgirl's best efforts to get the eps to me I'll be three episodes behind everyone which for a spoilerphobe ain't fun.

And I have to get the train at half-six tomorrow to make sure I'm in Glasgow with time to get the train to Birmingham.

And then I have to get from New Street to the hotel without getting lost.

And then I have to do the whole worry about whether anyone is going to take Scottish notes (yes, they are legal currency).

And then I have to find Wayne, Paul, Donna or whoever else is there and find out just what I'm going to be doing.

And then I have to remember I actually really enjoy doing this whole thing.

Heh!

I'm assuming it's at the Hilton again? Just get a train from New St to Bham International (it takes 10mins on average), & if you can't remember your way from there I'll be very surprised! I know I'm a local, but it's really easy, honestly :)

& now I'm going back to revision!

*hugs*

Through the NEC, right? I know I'll remember it when I get there, but I'm half tempted to go for the courtesy bus...

Now get studying you!

Heh!

Yep, straight through and out the other side, & from what I can remember from the last time I was there before Christmas, it is signposted on the direction board things that hang from the ceiling. Get outside & follow the path basically. News said earlier that there might be showers tomorrow but not that bad, getting nicer/warmer into the weekend so don't wrap up too warm in the hotel & drink lots of water :)

Don't bother with the courtesy bus, I think I got it once & it takes so much longer to get there compared to walking! The driver was a nice enough bloke though, very chatty.

Definitely back to studying now!

Cool. Thank you muchly! Also - thanks for the cat gif, it's exactly the right one.

Meant to say - you could change the programme that opens it by right-clicking on the thumbnail, going to properties and changing the 'opens with' option from IE to an image programme - there's a Window's default image viewer, or if you have Photoshop or an editing programme you could use that.

Good, glad it was the right one - I've had a copy for ages (I keep saving gifs from everywhere, it's an obsession, they're so cute though!) but figured it was probably the one you were on about!

I'll give that a go, think I remember trying to open them in the standard window's viewer before & they didn't really work, so I'll see what I can do. Thanks!

Have fun this weekend & I want some good gossip if you can get it! :)
