'blog-on-paper' explanation could cause more problems in explanation. ;) Lots more problems.

I have alsorealised that Saturday is my Brother-in-law's birthday.I think I'm meant to be somewhere (other than the zine symposium) but I'm not sure where or when :-/

Matey, you'd be doing me a favour by scrounging, so the offer is on the table :) although, not for long as I need to book tickets like tomorrow.
I'm surprised no one bought up the 'blog-on-paper' explanation for a zine, but that would require them to know what a blog is...

Re: trains. Yea, I got it wrong. It's Chiltern that goes from Snow Hill. Doesn't anybody else HATE Marylebone?

Lee: That's really a kind offer, but I wouldn't feel right scrounging off you. Maybe NEXT year will FINALLY be the year Imake it along (I'm sure Iwon;t make it along.

I did offer to show her some. I was like 'I have a ton of them in my room right now..wanna look?'. She didn't seem particularly bothered. :P
She only asked because I said I wanted to go to Leeds for a zine fair with Hannah-Mary.

Zines are "sort of self-published magazines, about anything, usually photocopied" and then I gesture a book with my hands!

Just show her some!

The one from snow hill might go to Maryleborne but I think there's a train from New Street that goes to Euston Station ;)

Woo...you're both right.

I'm not going. I'm flat broke and my mum wouldn't let me dash down to London. I had great fun trying to explain a zine to her.

I think my explanation was 'it's like this thing and you write it and it's like....yeah...it's a thing...' Needless to say, she learnt a lot from my explanation.

I'm going to London Zine Symposium and tabling!
Leaving Nottingham on the 6.28am train (direct to London) and leaving London (direct back to Nottingham) at 7.30pm.

Yeah, I guess so. I was being slightly sarcastic. Kinda...
Hmm it sounds like it's possible then, at least for someone that knows where they're going. We'll see what happens I guess.
Ray, I'd be more than happy to pay for your transport and all that if you want to go? Plus, that would mean me not getting completely lost and alone in London :)
Petrova is supposed to be going but she seems to have disappeared off the face of the planet...
