Really clinched for me tonight by having a heartbreaking Talk with someone, thinking 'Well, I survived that', then losing it completely when some fuckwit who looked like Rob Halford came up behind me and grabbed a handful of my hair and pulled it, hard - when I turned round in astonished anger he gave me a hugely sarcastic "Oh, I'm sorry" and walked off. For god's sake! On what planet is that considered acceptable behaviour? Argh.
That said, it was lovely to see the people I did see tonight - I won't namecheck you all, you know who you are - and I must thank adjectivemarcus for looking after me for the first half of the evening and nisaba for doing the same in the second half. You are both great. Thank you.
Not going back though. May wind up feeling the same about Synthetic Culture after next Friday, but we'll see.
