Off to Herd the Elephant

Beltane's hardly over and in two and a half hours I'll be on the train down to London to help wrangle a giant elephant.

The plan is to travel down today, catch up with the friend I'm staying with (a colleague from Sony Playstation days), probably do something involving a pub (it'll be weird having smoking indoors) and then be at Battersea for the training tomorrow. I should be able to escape early enough to get to the 'Ton for a while (just where is it, these days, please?), and then Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the full-on extravaganza - mostly taking place in the area defined by Piccadilly Circus, Charing Cross, Westminster and Green Park tube stations, but Thursday's "arrival" will be somewhere else....

Friday is lunchtime through to about eightish, Saturday is nine-ish to nine or so - the longest day (whether we've energy to get to Lost Vagueness's coincidentally-named Lost Elephant event is a moot point) and then Sunday is a nice relaxing ten or so through to seven....

Some kind of after party, I believe - but not as full-on as the Beltane one, and then train back up to Edinburgh on Monday.

Just in time for the Beltane organisers' debrief (we had a Nightwatch debrief last night, and there weren't an awful lot of major incidents) which will go on Far Too Long, but will be Very Useful.

And then bed....
