Hang on, are we being shoved out of the hotel's main breakfast room every day?
If so, why are we being treated like second class guests (again) ?

Chris
Ive just been working on text for the new readme, this is the relevant bit:


Breakfast is included for all those staying at the Hilton, and is served
from 7am-10am.  Please note that while all hotel guests have access to the
main hotel restaurant for breakfast (particularly if you have special
dietary or accessibility requirements) if you eat breakfast at the Drum
you will enjoy speedier service and a more relaxed atmosphere where you
can sit with your friends.

Hope that makes things clearer

No problem Chris.
Sadly I was so tired from being awake half the night I wasn't able to be Curious live.
Marvellous achievement though and I shall be catching up on everything later. Go humans!

Thanks for the post, Mandy. Just spent a few minutes checking out where different rooms had moved to.

No problem Jax, I can see I will be referring to the map a lot this time round myself, until I get the new room names in my head. And of course there are more programme rooms this time.
I shall be making good use of the phone app to make sure I go to the right place. :D

Now I just have the usual problem of trying to decide between really fun things that are happening at the same time. :roll:

And that doesn't count the constant possibility of getting so engrossed in conversation that I forget the schedule entirely, which happened to me more than once in 2010. :lol:


Edit: my apologies, Mandy, I forgot to say thank you.

Hoorah! Although I'd have called the "Sect Exchange" events "Sect's Change" but that's just me...
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

We've had a lot of debate about that very point but we thought that some people might get upset and the joke works *almost* as well as it is.

A brief list of the worst puns so far;
Sects change
Let's talk about Sects
No Sects please, we're skittish
Everything you wanted to know about Sects (but were afraid to ask)
Sects and ducks and clocks and trolls
and Guild Deputies are, of course, Sectsperts

That was NOT a challenge to lower the tone further!

sounds like a challenge to me. Sits back and waits for the fun... Andrew yoohoo where are you? (not the worst offender but I expect a contribution shall be forthcoming)
As we journey through life, discarding baggage along the way, we should keep an iron grip, to the very end, on the capacity for silliness.
