At the Tun [Nov. 2nd, 2006|11:40 pm]
Douglas Spencer
I've been at the Tun.
Whilst the journalists and camera team from BBC4 were unexpected, they weren't completely astonishing. The discussions about the Future Of Eastercon were widely predicted, so no surprises there.

No, the surprising thing was the quantity of matchmakers in attendance, all of whom were suggesting various good reasons why I should set off in hot pursuit of Person A. Regrettably, no-one seemed to be able to present any compelling reason why Person A should be in hot pursuit of me, so the whole project seems doomed to collapse for lack of any symmetry in the arrangement.

On the other hand I did not note any compelling reasons why Person A should not be in hot pursuit of you.

This is true, but it's hardly a recommendation.

Ah, since you're here -- do you have a deadline for your fanzine article?

You're just jealous because the little chocolate sticks are talking to me.

I second that snork!

And when the matchmakers have finished with you, who's next?

It'll be those Jammy Dodgers. I've never trusted them. I think they might be in cahoots with the Jaffa Cakes. [shifty eyes]

Well, if you're in hot pursuit of Person A, and Person A was in hot pursuit of you, you'd both be running round in circles. So it seems more sensible to be running after someone who's either standing still, or moving very slowly!

There's the constant danger that both parties stand still.

Female sheep signal their receptiveness by standing still. This is why lesbian sheep never get any action -- if two lesbian sheep fancy each other, they both stand still and nothing happens.

It sounds increasingly like I missed a fun Ton.

I may have had a drink or two. And been enthusiastic at you. But I think you have a lot going for you - solvent, smart, attractive, emotionally aware, etc etc. In fannish terms you're A1 material. Hell, if you weren't the wrong gender and I was already deeply committed elsewhere, I'd be tempted...

So there!
