Weird day...

It's 7am. Yes, it is appallingly early. My sister has just arrived from the airport. Her plane landed at 5.15am. I told her I'd book her a minicab...

Anyway, strange. I hadn't heard from my former employers for months and, now, in the space of less than 24 hours, I've had that
  • call about availability for a project
  • another ex-colleague emailed to tell me he'd seen this link and thought of me (why was a partner in the media practice looking at a page on how to build your own Tron armour costume?)
  • yesterday, as I was having lunch discussing business ideas with a Rubus ex-colleague, another called to ask advice on what games console to buy

So, I guess they've been talking about me, but why...?

Went to see Four Star Mary at the Underworld in the evening (all thanks to noticing Laura's MSN screen name said "7 Days to FSM"!). It's taken me over 2 years but, at last, they were in London on a date I was a) aware of and b) not detained late at work! Well worth the wait, especially as I got to meet up with a whole bunch of people including Teresa, Yvonne, Taz, PoF, Fil, Gooner, Claire and Laura (apols to any I omitted, blame it on time of morning).

I got the by now customary "You're Ming, right?" and, definitely not customary, proposals of marriage from both Yvonne and Teresa, the former at least three times...
"I don't think my parents could cope with two weddings in the same week"
"Marry me in June then"
"What, at Hyperion?!?"
"Yeah!"
"Er... I'll give the matter all due consideration..."
I can only imagine they have severely overestimated my net worth or that the drinks were clearly not watered down...
