Hmmm. I feel kind of...bleughh. This is for the job at the Coalition for the International Criminal Court. I know I didn't tick all the boxes, but I'd have thought all my distasteful blowing my own horn and name dropping might have gotten me ahead of the queue. Oh well.

Aberdeen!

When I asked Eric whether there was any chance of him/them coming over to Europe anytime soon, and he said "October", never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that the venue would be the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre -- I don't know anyone in or around that area, I don't know my way around it, and I don't know if I want to be travelling all that way...but I do know that I do not want to go to another convention.

Don't get me wrong: I had a lovely time at MR the month before last, due to the presence of my friends, the miniature golf course, and CoRo; but I really can't be going through three days of BtVS-themed mayhem again. No way!

Damn! That website doesn't even say if it's possible to just see CoRo and nothing else...maybe it will nearer the time...
