Question: Weren't you at the September 02 ZZ9 convention in Cornwall? Its technically neither a one day or domestically hosted.

/I really should be able to remember what it was called but I can't.

It was a delightful surprise to see your face in ihasatardis! I doubt you remember me...I was friends with Scarlatti and I once had a dream about you. I think you cooked for me in it or something. Anyway, enough blather. Congratulations on your engagement! I'm glad you're doing well, I'd wondered about you before.
