I'm going to a party on Saturday, which I have been looking forward to four months. It should be great fun, I'm expecting there to be lots of excellent people, and it is great to have a party to look forward to in the post-Christmas-post-Hogmanay lull.

But in other ways, it could be a bit weird. It is the party that crosses the streams. But not just two streams, mind. I reckon that there will be people there from at least five different aspects of my life, going back 32 years. Which given that I hadn't met either of the hosts until about 2000 is pretty good going.

I met one of the hosts at work. So there will probably be a whole load of people I used to work with. Where I met my ex. Who introduced me to LJ, where I made a whole load of friends online, some of whom will also be there. (Two of whom are staying with me for the weekend.)

One of the hosts sings in a choir, with an old friend (whom I also went out with for a few months. In 1983).

The host also run a dialogue group that I go to, so I imagine several of them will be there too. Including an ex of my ex.

I had expected to introduce my friends Julie and Andrew to my friends Andrew and Julie, at which point the goppelgangers would merge in a cataclysm of annihilating energy, destroying the known universe. Unfortunately I believe that both Julie and Andrew and Andrew and Julie have split up. I could still introduce Julie to Andrew, which might be able to save everyone changing their address books.

Still I'm looking forward to the weekend. At the very least, it'll be interesting.

Oh, and kilts.

I would be delighted to meet Julie, and commiserate with her.

What's a dialogue group?

I thought I'd written about it here, but I'm buggered if I can find it.

I'll tell you Saturday.

This iexplains a bit about dialogue group (https://patrickhadfield.wordpress.com/2012/09/19/silence-is-the-question-a-dialogue/).

I'm not certain that Julie and Andy have split up, but he hasn't been around much - so please don't mention it!
