I look forward to seeing you there and discussing new ways to say "Bad Monkey," and remind me to tell you about the Adventure of the Whoopee Cushion -- it will be a good blog post eventually, but currently it is a zesty romp of an anecdote in person!
(Painting is Joris Hoefnagel's "Wedding at Bermondsey" and is just there because it depicts some Tudor types goofing around. It is not, as far as I am aware, an actual picture of this weekend's events painted in the future and then cast back through time for us to consider.)
