I can't organise

So I've finally booked everything for ConCrete Cow down in Milton Keynes. Yeah, that's the con that's happening this weekend. I fly down stupidly early on Saturday morning, and need to navigate from Luton to MK proper. I'll throw cash at a taxi if needs must. One night in a travelodge then up at the crack of sparrowfart to head back to Edinburgh on Sunday morning.

A sane person would have got that sorted earlier. I've been rather scatterbrained recently.

My earlier period off the grid was a long weekend in Belfast. Which was fantastic. J. and I stayed in the most bombed hotel in Europe (a bloody posh bombed hotel at that), I had a pint in the crown bar, and even sampled Black Bush (not bad, but too sweet for my Islay-centric tastes). More of a writeup when I get the photos off my phone. And it involved traveling on a boat. Which is good.

I took only my phone, and regretted it. I have a noticeable lack of cash with which to investigate UMPCs, the paycheque for Tribes is already earmarked for other things. Maybe when There's Only Music So That There's New Ringtones comes in... until then, I may take the Brick, which is crap but at least can do a passable impression of a text editor with my bluetooth keyboard in tow. Maybe I should look into getting my old Treo 600 back. It's old and clunky, but by god I was in love with that phone. Considering hooking my current one up to my currently quiet Twitter thingie. We shall see. Speaking of which, anyone feel like I should be stalking them? Speak, puny humans.

Currently knackered. Have spent a lot of the last week either in tired holiday recovery mode, or overcoming dread lurgy mode. This weekend was quiet and mostly indoors, which helped a lot. Jade Empire (another Bioshock RPG) helped quiet a bit as well. I know that I owe a writeup of the last Æternal Legends session, and have for some time. That'll come this week.

And I'm out.

Speaking of small electronic devices, a friend linked to this in their blog. Thought you might be interested: http://www.stephenfry.com/blog/?p=3

Luton Airport to MK: Taxis hmmm... only if you seriously can afford it!!!

Buses/coaches:
There is a Virgin connection Train bus that leaves every hour from Luton Airport and goes to the Raiway station in the 'City' centre:

The bus timetable you want is for the VT99. its about £5 for a journey and takes about 45-60 minutes depending on traffic.

Alternatively there are National Express coaches to the (Gods-awful) Coachway station on the edge of Town. (it's being rebuild since it burnt down last year (and no it wasn't me!)

Local Buses (MK Metro (bright YELLOW buses!) to and from there, are not great and taxis from there, well lets just say they're equvilant to Edinubrgh prices and perhaps then some...


Good luck and make sure you leave plenty of time before the bombs go off for you to escape and have complete deniblity... *_^

Thanks for that. It's a big help.

Not a problem....

All I ask is that you make sure MK afterwards disappears off the face of the earth... Perhaps by a Giant Earthworm or something...
