Travel to England & Scotland: Postcards and Meet-ups

The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

bread and puppet

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

Travel to England & Scotland: Postcards and Meet-ups

peace on earth
Bobby and I will be traveling to England and Scotland in, now, less than two weeks. (*muted squee*) A couple of people have expressed interest in meeting up somewhere, so here is our rough itinerary. If you'd like to meet up with us, just drop me a comment or an email at DawnFelagund@gmail.com.

4 September: departure
5 September: arrive in Newcastle
6-8 September: Newcastle/Tynemouth
9-12 September: Stirling
13 September: Glasgow
14 September: Newcastle/Tynemouth
15 September: departure :(

Also, if anyone would like a postcard, please let me know! There are some newcomers on Teh Flist and just as a reminder to those of you who are old-hat ...

  • If I've sent you something before, then I have your address, and unless it's changed then you don't have to send it again. My address records are one thing that I do keep up-to-date and organized. ;) So just leave me a comment.

  • If I don't have your address, comments are screened, and I will not un-screen anything that contains personal information. If you'd be more comfortable, you can also email me at DawnFelagund@gmail.com.

  • If I don't know your real name, don't forget that. It's always a little embarrassing to send mail to ElfGrrl69. ;)

  • I know whenever someone puts out a call like this on LJ, there is often this moment of uncomfortable consideration, like, "Do I know Dawn well enough to ask this of her? Have I commented enough on her journal? Have I read enough of her stories? Will she think I'm grabby if I ask for a postcard and she doesn't think I've done enough for her in return?"

    Please don't think that way. If I only wanted a post to be open to certain people, then I would lock it so that it's only open to certain people. I don't care if we've talked once or we talk every day; if you want a postcard, ask for one! I promise you that I am not weighing requests against a little scale of reciprocity in my head. ;) I like both sending and receiving postcards from my friends, so if you want to play along too, I welcome you!

  • SCAdians, I often aim posts at my writing friends, since more of them read and comment on my journal, but you're included in this too.

  • And if you'd prefer a postcard from either England or Scotland (or specifically from one of the places on our itinerary), please let me know!

Comments are screened.
  • So, if I'm remembering correctly, you guys will be flying directly from Newcastle to London on your way back?

    I might be able to make it to Newcastle on the 14th - or maybe not, as the current tenants of the house my friends and I are to be moving into are screwing us over majorly. :( Will you be having internet access while you're in the UK?
    • Yep, we're flying from Newcastle to London to Baltimore. :)

      I will have Internet access and will be taking Pengolodh Lord of Gondolin, so keep me updated if we can meet up. I'd love to! :)

      And I'm really sorry to hear about the house situation. I'll keep my fingers crossed for all of you that it works out how you need it to. *hugs*
  • Oh, I hope you and Bobby have a wonderful trip! Will there be picspam when you're back? I hope so!
    • Thank you! :) I'm hoping that there will be picspam while we're there; I'll be staying with my sister while we're in England and so will be able to keep my journal updated directly for once (versus handwriting it and trusting myself to find the time and energy to type everything up when I get home. :)
