    I wish I could join you guys, but I'm poorer than poor at the moment (cats got sick, bank account got drained and I'm still a student, so, no income) and there's probably no way I have money to fly over.

    Would love to discuss books over drinks with everyone, though!

    If everyone's happy with the George, our writing group still meets there and I am happy to book it for that day.

    Usually they want us out by 5pm, though, because they are doing comedy nights on Saturdays now and they say they need time to set up.

    What time do we want to start?

    Crunchy d'you really think Seun would notice being picked and carved?

    About meeting time - lunch time? 12ish? 1ish?




    And my large kingdom for a little grave,
    A little little grave, an obscure grave . . .

    I'm hoping he won't, otherwise the day's entertainment is scuppered.

    12/1sh sounds good to me.

    Hmmm interesting. (You are not one of those strange Cockneys born in Bermondsey are you?) I too am a Cockney - but will settle for the carving!

    I sat through a whole episode of EastEnders once. Does that make me Cockney?

    Damn, missed out on picking and carving seun.

    12ish sounds good to me.

    I am sure that there is enough of Seun to share with you . . . is that an ambiguous statement?

    Are we talking catering already? Cos I'm not sure seun is suitable for vegetarians or people with nut allergies.

    LOL! Maybe not suitable for vegetarians - but surely there cannot be anyone here with a nut allergy - we is all nuts!

    Anyone want to take charge of this and get it organised? Someone with more of an idea about London than me would be a good idea.

    I thought we had agreed to April 27 at the George in the Strand. About 12ish?
