geek in the park

i wanted to shout out about next month’s geek in the park for those of you that mightn’t be aware.

although it is taking place in ROYAL leamington spa, some 344 miles away from my humble abode in scotland, the event is actually taking place less than 200 yards away from where my folks live and where i grew up, on the banks for the river leam (or thereabouts).

so am royally gutted that can’t afford to attend – the prohibitive expense of virgin train fares means that on the 9th august i will be sitting at home sulking whilst the geeks descend en masse to my old haunt. unless, of course, there are some philanthropic blog readers out there with plenty of poppy poised to line richard branson’s pockets on my behalf…
