Flail.  
I'm flailing about the bus trip now. I'm going to be getting into the centre of Birmingham at 4.10 am. Alone. I don't know the city, I amn't meeting anyone when I get there* and I have no idea how much it'll cost to get a taxi out to the hotel (not that I can actually afford to get a taxi out to the hotel but I'll burn that bridge when I get to it).

I know some Asylum folks are going to be in town from the Thursday - anyone likely to be around to give me a little safety in numbers at that time on the Friday morning?

(Yeah, I'm sounding a little desperate, I'm a country girl, I don't do cities unless I absolutely have to.)

Another topic: I've been really ratty and mood-swingy this last week mostly because I'm PMSing. And one of the things that changed with my body since I hit my thirties is that I don't have acne as such any more, just the week of my period I get one or two hormone spots. And I'm not talking miniscule blemishes here.

Right now I have Mount Freaking Etna on my chin.

I can cope, not a problem, normally.

But this weekend is the convention. This is probably going to be my only chance to get in a photo with all the boys and I have a spot on my face the size of a second head.

*headdesk*

Am I getting more stressed about the con now? You betcha I am.

* I would *love* to meet up with people at the con - apparently I'm getting a staff t-shirt which'll be so much fun, so I'm looking for suggestions to make me recognisable. Y'know, apart from the volcano on my chin. *g*

We're driving down Friday a.m. and should arrive at the hotel around lunchtime. Will keep an eye out for you!

Friday is going to be so hectic!

Awesome! Yup, Friday's going to be nuts! I've said I'll help out at registration as well, but I've got a PA staff meeting at some point as well. I think Wayne might be flailing a little bit as well!

I'll be okay - it's my typical pre-con flail I think! Just hitting me a couple of days early this time around

Eek, I sympathise about the arrival time in an unknown city. That's scary.

I've just had a quick dig around and apparently the coach station (as long as it's Birmingham Central Coach Station, Oxford Street you're going to) is about five minutes' walk from Birmingham New Street rail station and presumably less time than that by taxi, if there are any around at that time in the morning. I know it all costs money, but it should be a lot cheaper than getting a taxi to the hotel. The first train so far as I can see from there to B'ham International station is at 5.29, fare £3.10.

Hmm. Edited because it looks as though I am giving you journey directions, when my intention was to get you safely to somewhere (ie the rail station) where there would be other people, asap!

Look forward to seeing you at the con!

I was thinking that the train option might be the best thing - you're a star!

*bounces*


not long to go now!
