Hopefully I'll be able to come up for this to make up for it.
Would be great to see you there, Paul.

Also of note is that there's a Travelodge quite close to the venue, which might be handy for people.

Kwaku Sarpong? My Year 8 Chemistry teacher? If Mike remembers, was he African and bald? According to my notes, he was a Ghanaian living in London. Can't remember whether he was bald, but I have a sneaky feeling he may have been. On the other hand, it was nearly 18 years ago and my memory isn't that...

Re: CoLei5 - Saturday 14 April 2012

stuff about SALINES. Just for the record, I think SALINES is given in Lexplorer because Susie has allowed it on several occasions, using the argument that you can have various types of saline solution. Personally, I'm more inclined to agree with the COLEI decision; I wonder whether Susie would allo...

I noticed when the crucial conundrum came up he didn't actually put his finger on the buzzer, even at the start. His body language suggested to me he'd taken the hump - he was probably fed up with being told to smile too! To be fair, Michael did exactly the same thing the previous day, so I don't t...
