Had another chat with the chap in America, ironed out remaining substantive issues, including a 5% boost to basic salary to make up for the fact that they don't do pension contributions.

Agent for the other guys came back to say they don't think they have a suitable slot for me at present.

Guess I'll be taking that first offer then. I'll still go to the interview tomorrow. If anything actually develops out of it, I'll worry about it at the appropriate time. It'll be a better class of problem.

Pub meet:
Much fun geeky gossip as usual at the Shakespeare Arms, pear Kopparburg appears to have become even more of a staple drink. And at least partly because I used to drink the stuff when I worked in Helsinki! Was amused to discover I make an appearance in Jim's Atlantis novel. Seems I'm a scientist requesting a transfer to the Battlestar Galactica aka the Daedalus :-)

There was also some discussion about Star One, a Blake's 7 convention. I think I'm increasingly tempted...

One potentially amusing thing: Some of us on Ragnar Anchorage had been discussing a London pub meet. Put names to faces etc. I'd nominated the Shakespeare Head (along with the Horseshoe Inn (LOTNA venue)) on the basis that it's central and is accustomed to a bunch of fans showing up. We'd settled on Feb 18th as the date. And then at the end of the evening, Jo mentioned the next pub meet will be... Feb 18th. Could be interesting...

Ah, these the same markets we met at late last year?

Well, following a quick email exchange with Kate and Jo, we may well be there on the 19th!

How many of us are turning up in that book? I know Steve and I were supposed to. I think Atlantis was gaining a crazy Irish Pathologist

The excerpt does mention a Sergeant Riley who's a cloud of free-floating atoms...

Waah! I love it.

I'm writing as fast as I can...

No rush hon, we know that whenever you do finish it, it will be good. See I have faith in my favourite writers. Though if you write bad medical stuff, I will have to kill you!

Don't make me come over there, freckles. I am cranky and I own more guns than a small African nation.

Yes, but I have scapels and I know how to use them!

I am having a bad day with shite medicine on BSG and idiot fans who are stupid enough to try and convince me I am wrong about a pathology thing. Grr Argh. It's all Ron Moore's fault for being a moron and not doing his research properly. You, OTOH, have no excuse, as you know too many medics, and cannot get away with it

Am telling you next thing, he will be having them all get together for a pub meet in Atlantis.

I still want to autopsy a Wraith.

Bwah, don't take it out on me! We all got our fantwits to deal with, dearest.
