Richard's chickens

Some of you will have heard me tell a joke, the "chicken in a library" joke.

Well, today I learnt that my brother has named one of his chickens "Book", in my honour.

If anyone hasn't heard the "chicken in a library" joke, please seek advice from someone who has before you ask me to tell it to you.

Wet tomorrow, wet at the weekend

Tomorrow is Blair's birthday -- he'll be 42. So he and Ben and I, potentially with troosa and the kids, are all going down to Hayling Island for a company day out. He says that we should take a change of dry clothes and a towel. I have a dark suspicion that there may be some sort of Activity planned.

Saturday is the big water-pistol fight between Blake's 7 fans and ZZ9ers. I'm going down to Winspit Quarry with beermat, mindygoth, potentially with adelheid and/or Dave-WINOLJ, and we're going to do battle with watervole and her gang. She says that we should take a change of dry clothes and a towel. I have a dark suspicion that there may be some sort of filking planned.

There was some reason why I put both of these events in the same journal entry, but I can't quite remember why.
