Hello. Not much time for news, but some time for photos. Inspired by the competition I've pulled my finger out and at least done my Photos of Grendel from WGT 2007 and their gig at the Corporation in Sheffield in June.

My quest is to do my WGT photos before Infest, then my Infest photos before WGW and so on... Fast, I am not at the moment.

Anyway, enjoy...

I took over 4500 photos. Processing will take a while. Here is one of each of the 28 bands I shot. I also ssw Nvmph but didn't get the camera out for them as they were most of the way through their set.

Off to Germany tomorrow morning. Another reason I won't be posting, but just for a few days.

Then the onslaught of WGT pictures will dribble out slowly...

... it feels like a very long time since my last confession.

Today I have governors meetings so have the excuse of working from home. Actually I'm having to work pretty hard, but this is a moment of diversion. One of my new colleagues said to me the other day "You've fitted in very well. It feels like you've been here forever." - I think it was a compliment. Needless to say my performance review started with "You're doing very well" and then went on to "Like me, you might find you have to be more politic and less direct at times". I smiled, which was probably the best thing to do in the circumstances.

I'm not sure when I last updated, but since then work has been mostly fun and in my spare time I've been mostly exhausted. Of course I missed Whitby, but then I went skiing in Tignes IN MAY. A long weekend (out Thurs, back Monday, Ski 3.5 days) was just what I needed. We even had snow. There are some pictures here. For the first time I dragged an SLR up the mountains and despite falling on it a couple of times the results were good. I was with a guide off piste for a couple of days (though one was cut short with a hospitalisation) and actually felt my skiing was good enough to make it worth it.

Other than that, weekends have been spent quietly contemplating taking over the world. But more of that in 2009/10.

Last night, because I can remember it, I'll talk about Ian McKellen. Everything [livejournal.com profile] oxfordgirl said is true. He did seem to be very well endowed. Sylvester McCoy also looked alarmingly like a hobbit which added to the confusing buzz in my head. Oh, it was King Lear in Stratford if you weren't sure what I was on about.

This weekend is secret plans, next weekend is WGT. Hi-ho hi-ho it's off again to the Eurozone I go. Though I'm not sure I should after the travesty of the 2007 ill-fitting trouser competition in Helsinki. Go Moldova!!

Now, to work. Still love you all, etc. Even if I don't reply to your emails in a timely fashion and so on...

In my defence I am automating more and more of this each time. Now to WGW I guess...

Not being a massive football fan I thought it would be a good idea to get my German trip for the year out of the way before the football fans - little did I know I'd bump into 20,000 goths instead...Read more... )

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] davefish for organising, [livejournal.com profile] mrph for guiding services and [livejournal.com profile] kantti for bag minding. Roll on next year!

Not looking forward to seeing my mobile phone bill though!

Right, better do some work now...
