Aaagh! LJ ate my entry up.

In point form:

Holidays are great - I've not moaned for ten days, and if I have - it's been results anxiety & the weather (too hot!).
Rebels & Martyrs at the National Gallery is ace - it's nice to see something in thematic rather than chronological/stylistic order.
Neal's Yard are too expensive but their pumpkin & polenta pie is gorgeous to take-away!
The Fabian Society have lots of interesting things to say; shame Sajid Khan MP's talk didn't offer anything new.
K-Bar is a great place to people watch; so, so many posers! Won't be going back since I'm slightly offended by the Buddhist imagery being treated with contempt.
The Crabtree is a great place to drink - perhaps a river [profile] londonpubcrawl would be a plan @ some point?
Make a point of going to The Glass Bar - it's ace. 
I met someone I wanted to rant at but kept my mouth shut.   
I also met someone I fancied, so all was not lost.

More on the last week/so can be found here. 

Got a wedding on Saturday & RHCP + Channel 4 next week. Will also be moving out, so housewarming details will be out soon :D

Great political/social world-cup themed quiz can be found here :D

I think Jo is starting to arrange the next one now, so you could suggest it to her. That said, wouldn't a river pub crawl basically be the District Line? Also some of the stops on those lines are bereft of decent pubs (i.e. Temple)

A better bet might be a walking route, which occasionally crosses the river depending on where the better bars are? Start on the south, a few pubs along the river, cross a bridge, a few pubs on the north side of the river, back across to the south?

I think we'll have to walk to get most of the decent ones in. Also, a few of them are inaccessible from the river (e.g. a wall as a barrier), so u'd have to walk around 'em, climb up from the towpath and walk parallel to what you just did to get to the pub.

Are you coming to the party tomorrow? Fabians haven't really always lived up to their potential - I left about five years ago, though I've rejoined since I moved to London and it's worth it because of events and so on - there's the nutter contingent and more problematically the networkers who are there for what they can get, not what they can contribute. Still, the principle is good.

There's a party?

Do tell - I'm not actually a member.

Well, I don't have the original invite. Here a message about it from IN.

1) Interns' Network and Young Fabians Boat Party – this Friday 14th
We’re hijacking the good ship Sundance this Friday night for a fantastic cruise down the Thames and party along with the Young Fabians. All welcome, so invite partners and friends along too. To reserve your ticket email - but you can just roll up and board, space-permitting, as well.

Tickets are priced at £13 (£18 for non Young Fabian members) and this includes a buffet, live music from the fantastic Playthings and the gentle breeze as we cruise down the Thames on the Sundance. We will depart from Westminster pier at 7pm and the dress code is smart. No need to pay in advance, just bring cash / cheque (made payable to the Young Fabians) with you on the evening. For those that are under 31 and would like to join the Young Fabians for just £5 in order to secure the discounted rate please download an application form from the YF website and bring it along with payment for tickets.

Sounds interesting. Shame I'm actually a) scared of boat parties and b) waiting for a washing machine 'til 10pm tomorrow!

Thanks though - for this and the Singer article.

I will go away and think about that one now :)

The Crabtree was great, but I think I saw a notice on the door saying it was closing next week for two months' refurbishment.

hey lady!

I'd love to be there too but I'll be in New Zealand then. Am currently on travels/work experience as part of my degree so won't be able to catch up with the gang 'til December.

How are things with the book going?

Ah ok, hope you're having fun.

It all seems to be going well. A few newspapers want to serialise it and it is going on the three for the price of two table at waterstones so fingers crossed.

all the best and let me know when you're back and perhaps we can meet up.

You have a special thank-you in the back for reading over the health chapter.

Hey N!

I'm back in the UK now. I've also bought two copies of our book :)

How did the book launch go?

It was fun thank you. Here's a photo of Katy and I with the cake the publishers gave us.

We have a weekly tip from the book in thelondonpaper on Fridays and I've done quite a few radio interviews.
