Even though it didn't look so exciting or fun when I passed through it yesterday...
(P.S. This thing comes with an overnight stay, yes? Cause I have decided, unless my dad is nice and gives me a lift, I'm coming straight from Lanark, via Biggar and Peebles. And there's only about 6 buses a day between Biggar and Peebles. So I probably wouldn't be able to get back home afterwards.)
I just looked it up on Google maps. Your town is about the size of my flat, Tom.
I also discovered there is, in fact, a page on the Internet entitled "How To Get To Innerleithen". I like this. I like less the fact that I apparently have to go via Edinburgh, it seems a very roundabout way of doing things, but I suppose you just have to live with these things when travelling to a backwater.
Tom, do this properly and make a Facebook event. This is confusing.
Though I can't go anyway, I'm already attending another barbecue on Saturday. I somehow don't think I can be in two places at once.
"Wow, is that the laser? It's bitchin'." "Yes. In 1917 when Albert Einstein established the theoretic foundation for the laser in his paper "Quantentheorie der Strahlung", his fondest hope was that the resultant device be bitchin'."
Ok, Facebook it is. Look for more info there, but I didn't put something there in the first place because I don't want to invite the whole damn internet. Just you guys...
And some Uni coursemate friends.
Oh, and some high school friends.
Oh and... no, that's it.
Bex - Yes, ample floorspace for crashage & everything. I will post instructions on FB about how to get from Glasgow>Innerleithen, if you know how to get to Peebles it's only another 6 mile bus journey in.
Dave - I will tackle you to the ground before I allow you back on the trampoline: Not for me, not for you, but for your sleeping bag. It deserves better than what happened last time
Cati - the bonfire (which is up a hill, unfortunately, as this involves effort to reach it) will be the size of your flat (for reals ;p) but there's a chimnier that we can light up and then YES - toffee apples, toasted flaming marshmallows - the lot!
Ross - you make me cry inside :'C
Heather - I'm going to sabotage your other BBQ so it explodes. With a nuclear warhead |

Or we can invent time travel. Going back on your own time stream is perfectly permissible, provided you don't try to occupy the same space or discuss the future with yourself to the extent that it prevents you from carrying out said future leading you to discuss it.
Unless, of course, travelling in time does in fact rely upon you occupying the exact same space in time, à la Hot Tub Time Machine or there is such a thing as predetermination whereby it is impossible to escape your future and no matter what you tell yourself it'll ultimately always lead to the events that cause your jaunt into the past.
Hmmm, the uncertainty surrounding time travel may make it too risky a strategy. Tell you what, I'll do research into the reality of it and get back to you all last Thursday.
Anyway, my own attendance is unlikely as I will more than probably have no money.
