I've just read (in The Sun, so consider the reliability of the source, but anyway) that the police are investigating the possibility that the guyropes were cut by vandals. First reaction is that this would be easy to check - look for cut ropes - which makes me think that maybe they've already found cut ropes, and now they're trying to figure out whether it was done as part of the rescue operation or not. Apparently the exhibit itself was sliced up at a previous location.

The London appearance has been confirmed cancelled, so there goes the birthday plan. Does anybody have any thoughts on what else might be fun to do? I'm completely lacking in ideas.

The whole 'structure' took off in a high wind and two people got killed, a load more injured. As for the exhibit itself, between damage sustained while it was flying around and damage caused by the rescue crews, I very much doubt it's going to carry on running. I'll email them late next week to double check, once they've had a chance to figure out wtf's going on, but for now I'm guessing I'll need to figure out something else to do on my birthday.

Poo.

My birthday is September 3rd, which is a Sunday this year. I'm fairly set on going here in the daytime... probably in a fairly sideways state of mind and body chemistry:

Anybody interested in coming along?

This year I will be 33, which is a hobbit coming of age. It also, at some point in the last year or so, prompted an odd idea. I decided that as well as having a fairly normal (i.e. low-key (ish (maybe))) birthday celebration this year, I was going to try for something a little major when I was 33+1/3 - partly because I missed out on doing anything major on my 30th due to the accident just before it, but mostly because it just appealed to me as a concept - one last nod to the world of LPs before CDs completely drive them from my rapidly fading memory ;-) This would place the celebration at or around 3rd January 2007, so I'm arbitrarily claiming this year's New Year celebrations, and everything surrounding them, as mine :-P If anyone has any great ideas on what to do, where to do it, or who to do it with (or to ;-) ) then feel free to share them.
