== EC on RW category ==
 
 
 
My bad, sorry! [[User:SuperJosh|SuperJosh]] 13:00, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:Not your bad, it's the bad of whoever invented mediawiki. [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 13:01, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
 
 
 
== Ishmael ==
 
 
 
''I have a pet theory that Cain and Abel dates back to conflicts between hunters and herders, and Esau and Jacob between herders and farmers - with the contending tribes in each case being personified as brothers.'' Have you ever read ''Ishmael'' by Daniel Quinn? He brings up nearly that exact theory. If you haven't it's a damn good read, I highly recommend it. --[[User:PitchBlackMind|PitchBlackMind]] 00:46, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:ooh, sound good! thanks mate! [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 08:27, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

You get a present! [[User:Phantom Hoover|Phantom Hoover]] 21:31, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

At the fringe. (tomorrrow?) [[User:Toast|Toast]] 21:54, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:Thanks toastie. Leaving tomorrow, arriving Edinburgh Wednesday. I will wave at Worksop as I whiz wildly past. [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 22:11, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
 
::How long for? We're contemplating coming up Thursday or Friday but nowhere to stay yet. [[User:Toast|Toast]] 22:29, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:::Until Monday. That's three RWians in the same city. [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 22:42, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
 
::::::4 actually Marghanita Laski & I are a package: you don't get one without t'other. [[User:Toast|Toast]] 23:11, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
 
::::I'm tempted to go now. If only I could afford a car, or train tickets, or didn't have a crappy job to go to. [[User:SuperJosh|SuperJosh]] 23:07, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:::::::Sorry, I forgot Marganita was a RWian. And after she showed us the lovely grapes and all. We're playing after midnight at the Jekyll and Hyde evry night if you want to hear a strange band playing weirdo stuff. [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 07:51, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
::::::::Hey! I'm starting to feel quite jealous about all this.  Hope you all have a good time.  And a report on the "strange band" would be interesting.--[[User:Bob M|Bob M]] 07:54, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:::::::::I'm going to *try* to record/video some of it, and I'll update here/there when I'm back (don't know how online I'll be in Edinbaaa). [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 07:57, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
::::::::::It must be more than four. I can't be the only RationalWikian in Edinburgh... [[User:Phantom Hoover|Phantom Hoover]] 08:09, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:::::::::::WaitingforGodot visited, but that's it - certainly when she enquired, you were the only one to say you were from Edinburgh. We are thinly scattered - I think I'm the only one in Devon, although I *think* Weaseloid may be from zummerzet. [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 08:12, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
::::::::::::I am sitting with Rad McCool in the same city as Pi and PJR. Partytime. [[User:Ace McWicked|Ace McWicked]] 08:45, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:::::::::::::You must all pop round PJR's and introduce yourselves. Bring a few tinnies, he might not have any. [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 08:59, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
::::::::::::::I guess we might have a cluster of RWans in London. Alas, I am all alone on the steppes of Kazakhstan. [[User:Genghis Khant|Genghis Khant]] 09:02, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:::::::::::::::Right here! [[User:SuperJosh|SuperJosh]] 09:43, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
::::::::::::::::I'm in the Borders - does that count as Edinburgh? ;) [[User:Worm|Worm]] 11:50, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
And away I go! [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 09:18, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
:Byeeee.--[[User:Bob M|Bob M]] 10:40, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
 
 
 
== 'ello, 'ello ==
 
 
 
Hey Martin. How was the festival thingy you did? [[User:SuperJosh|SuperJosh]] 10:20, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
 
:Great fun, made an intense racket every night at the Jekyll and Hyde, and we got asked to stop playing at the Pear Tree by the management. But I never got to meet Phantom Hoover (despite asking for him at every gig) or Toast :(. Oh and two old ladies threatened to shoot us. And the act on before us was a woman giving a presentation about her sisiter dying and how miserable she felt, which kiboshed the atmosphere a bit. And my feet hurt. And there was cake. Overall, exhausting but mega fun - the best holiday I've ever had. How did you all survive the great bandwidth crisis? [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 10:27, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
 
::And in London I walked past Polly Harvey. Swoon! [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 10:29, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
 
::Haha! So you actually asked for Phantom Hoover every night before you started your set? I can imagine listening to some old woman talking about her dead sister wouldn't be the highlight of the trip. I think the site was down for a bit last night after looking [http://teflpedia.com/index.php?title=Teflpedia:Student_bar#hello here], but I was out last night so I wouldn't know. Genghis was the only one who swore off Teflonpedia for a few days to help us all. [[User:SuperJosh|SuperJosh]] 10:35, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
 
:::You asked for me? Uh-oh. [[User:Phantom Hoover|Phantom Hoover]] 14:07, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
 
::::Sorry Martin, Toast wasn't there. Couldn't find anywhere to stay overnight (surprise!) so didn't go. The friends with a caravan @ Mortonhall who I'd intended to batten on had already got nine in a 4 berther as it turned out. [[User:Toast|Toast]] 15:40, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
 
:::::I spent two nights on a floor in a room full of bikes. Then some more band members turned up and I had to sleep with a total stranger for two nights - or rather, she had to sleep with me. And he answer to your question is "no we didn't".
 
::::::Never mind, eh? Always next year... [[User:SuperJosh|SuperJosh]] 16:19, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
 
:::::::EC) <small>A room full of bikes? As in "''she's the local bike''" or as in tarted up velocipedes?</small> I'd have gone anyway but SWMBO put a stop to it: no way was she kipping in a sleeping bag under a floral clock in Princes St Gardens. [[User:Toast|Toast]] 16:23, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
 
:::::::::as in velocipedes (darn, "velocipede" sounds too much like an arthropleura... that'd be even worse!). It was not good weather for kipping outside. [[User:Totnesmartin|Totnesmartin]] 16:34, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
