An entertaining weekend in prospect

molesworth was at the Tun last night. I'd forgotten quite how much ... ummm ... presence the man has.

We had a long talk. Bits of it were loud. I think there may have been spectators.

He quizzed me earnestly about the fact that I never seem to swear, never seem to get angry. He'll be at Novacon this weekend, and he tells me that he's going to have a drink with me, and more talk. He thinks there's more to me than meets the eye, and he says that he can make something of me. I rather suspect that he's going to try and teach me how to be angry, how to swear.

I'm going to handle the exercise by refraining from getting heated in any way whatsoever, by remaining totally calm. "Really, Nic? Is that so, Nic? Goodness me, Nic, I never realised". I wonder if anyone's tried this approach before. I wonder if it'll wind him up somewhat.

I'm rather looking forward to it.
