B-day shindig this Friday/Saturday.

Hiya gang;

This is a subtle reminder, if you have the time and inclination, to join me for a small b-day gathering this coming weekend. The plans are as such:

I’ve booked the basement of the City Cafe (19 Blair St) from 6-10pm on Friday, April 30th. There will be food and drink available, of course, and if you get a bit antsy, we can head up to Calton Hill for the Beltane event that night.

More on Fire here.

Since the room was a bit pricey to secure, I modestly ask you to contribute a single £ or so if you can afford it. I apologize for doing so, but I need the assistance this year.

Saturday, if the weather is as lovely as it’s been this past week, I thought it would be fun to get together in Holyrood Park for an afternoon picnic. WEATHER PERMITTING, we’ll be hanging out just east of the two main roundabouts leading into the Park (Holyrood Park Road and Queen’s Drive), say right around 1:00pm. This gives you plenty of time to wake up after a long Beltane eve and plenty more to attend any of the other various events planned around town on Saturday evening. Bring snacks, sandwiches, or just an anti-personnel land mine and we’ll blow up tourists…together.

MultiMap here.

Have a splendid week and feel free to phone or mail with queries and the like. Hope to see you at either/or!

    Wait – were you actually born on Walpurgisnacht? Its one of those things that almost makes too much sense to be true…
    Wish I could join you and raise a glass – have to settle for doing it from here.

    Yeah, that's my night. A blessing or curse?
    Don't fret, dear…we'll be raising *bottles* when I see you next! Wish you could be here, as well…

    A blessing, most definitely.
    Say – would you send me your mailing address? I promise not to send live squid or anything.

    I don't have your e-mail, sweets. Send one to mine (on my Info page) and I'll be sure to get it off to you.
    You sending Ol' Johnny along, then? 🙂

    Check, will e-mail you.
    Sigh ….. wish I could be sending us both along, actually. I've wanted to go to Scotland since I was small but I keep not quite getting there. One day . . .

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Your plans sound lovely. We wish we could be there to help you ring in the festivities. So instead, we will think of you and raise and a glass and a paw on your special day.
    Hugs and head-butts;
    C and T :o)

    As I've always said: head-butts are MUCH better than butt-heads.
    Thanks so much for the wishes, both from yourself and the indefatigable Vercingetorix the Great.
    Xo,

    Thanks, but we'll have the kids with us that evening as we're taking them to Beltane for the first time.
    Hope you have fun.

    Tho' suddenly a teenie bit nervous about the thought of turning up to a gathering of as yet unmet LJ folk – but i'm sure y'all arent planning to eat me…right?!

  26. FunkyPlaid Says:
    April 26th, 2004 at 10:27 pm

    Dah-ling, you have no need to bring a present – we haven't even met as of yet!
    But looking forward to finally doing so!
    …but i'm sure y'all aren't planning to eat me…right?!

    I will be gathering with the Gang(tm) on Saturnday and I will make sure that every God Blessed last one of them (even those you don't know) will all be raising a toast to the fact that you were born. And another (especially for those you don't know) to the fact that we were blessed enough to know you!

    You, sir, are officially beatified in my book.
    Thanks for your kind words!
