Well, I had hoped to make it to at least a day of FantasyCon, but I've realised it isn't going to be possible for me at the moment so I've just had to cancel the hotel.

But on the bright side, that does mean I've got a little more money left to spend on books, so I'll shortly be trawling the internet for various goodies which I would have bought at FCon but can't now.

It's a pity as I would have liked to have said to some of you "Hi, I'm that crazy old lady on the RCMB". But I hope you all have a great time, and do let us know how it goes when you get back, won't you?

That's a shame, Caroline - I was looking forward to meeting you (even if the opposite may not have been true!)... Maybe next year?

Ps Best of luck to all RCMB members who're up for BFS Awards. :-)

Sorry to hear that Caroline. I'm sure that there will be photos posted at some point.

Thanks Steve!

Here's a joke to cheer you up Caroline.

Craig has good taste in films.




Sorry, that's not a joke, it's a complete flat out lie.

Two budgies sat on a perch. One says to the other, "Can you smell fish?"

Caroline - never mind, I wasn't going anyway (; Besides, meeting this lot in the flesh is far worse than chatting to them on the message board.

Aw, thanks folks. I'm feeling better already. I've just pre-ordered a signed copy of Bryan Talbot's "Grandville" from the Forbidden Planet website. Next stop, PS Publishing to pre-order some Ramsey goodies.

Weber's budgie joke made me groan. Frank, you're right, if you're not going to be there, there isn't much point me going anyway. I'm sure there's no-one else here worth seeing in the flesh.

Plus, hubby has promised me a day trip to my favourite place in North Yorkshire, so there's that to look forward to. And then there's the Ilkley Literature Festival coming up, so things really aren't so bad ...

Cheer up, Caroline. We rely on you to keep things proper and friendly, here on the RCMB. If you're not there to cheer US up, there'll be warfare again.

I can't get to Fcon either, this year (and I'm gutted). But there're worse things that can happen...

There were two trappist monks walking down the road when suddenly one didn't say anything to the other.

Sorry you can't make it, Caroline- was looking forward to meeting you. Not to worry- there'll be other times. Hope you're well.

Blimey! I hope that's not true or you are all in a worse state than I am! I thought I was making things decidedly improper here recently anyway.

Weber - that joke made me groan even louder.

Hey, just think of the fun those of us left behind could have on the message board whilst everyone else is off at FCon - we could wreck the place ....

I took my rottweiler to the vet with toothache. The vet picked him up and looked in his mouth and said. "I'm going to have to put your dog down."

I said "because he's got toothache?"

He said "No, he's too heavy"

I went to the butcher and said "I bet you 50 you can't reach those Sirloins off the top shelf."

He said "No, the stakes are too high"

Hi, Caroline, if you can't go, I'm pleased in a way, because now I won't miss not meeting you again had I gone!
If you see what I mean? :-)

Yes, I know what you mean, Des - I was thinking the same thing about you, funnily enough! I was going to bring along my copy of "Weirdmonger" in the hope that you'd sign it for me if you were there too.

Weber, you're improving - the Rottweiler joke made me chuckle, never mind groan.

.. in fact, Des, I owe you a real drink for the imaginary one we had in our interview! I thought FCon this year might be my opportunity to get you that drink.

Sorry. I'll try harder.

Two fish meet up in a girls stomach. One says to the other "What's a nice plaice like you doing in a girl like this?"

Have you ever thought of doing stand-up comedy, Weber? No? Thank goodness for that!
