Well, we're all comfortably settled outside the 'Trailerpark stage (aka the conservatory) Enjoying sausages, sweeties and rum injected strawberries again. Could even be better than real Truck.

OK, well now we know that Truck is off (probably for the best!) I guess everyone is at a loose end this weekend. May I suggest an Instead-Of-Truck Indoor BBQ on Sunday?

Basically the plan would be that you all turn up at my house and I bring the BBQ equipment down to the patio by the house (so that even if it rains, I can provide food with minimum hassle :)). Then we can have cooked food and socialise, drink and eat inside in comfort. Shall we say 2pm onwards for anyone who fancies it? We can even provide old Truck compilation CDs for the right musical ambience :)

Even if you were never going to Truck anyway, do feel free to join us :)

OK, due to various people pulling out we have 2 1 Truck tickets now available suddenly. Do you know of anyone who might want said tickets? Then send them to this post forthwith and posthaste! We will be selling them at face value (i.e. £55 per ticket).

All gone now :)

I see that the Truck lineup is up (you have to click on the guy with the sign board in the middle of the page - lame, I know). Most of the regulars are there, although no sign of Fell City Girl this year, to my disappointment - I always like my late afternoon FCG. Still, looks like fun. I haven't been to a lot of gigs this year so there's quite a few names here I only recognise from other people's reviews. I feel sure I do know Idlewild, although I can't bring any of their songs to mind right now.

My plans for this weekend include a BBQ and a picnic. Looking at the forcast, I somehow doubt that I'm going to manage that! Actually, with the remains of the post Glastonbury cold still clinging on, I'm considering just staying at home - I don't think I could face being stuck at Didcot with the railway lines flooded out and given how suceptible our public transport is to that kind of stuff, I just don't have the energy. I guess I'll see how I feel tomorrow - this has been receding so maybe I'll be more energetic tomorrow.

I'll need to be if we're going out because the house is in a bit of a state. Drying washing and tent as well as piles of to be washed and books and all the other various bits of our luggage spread across the place! And on top of that there is my course books and all the post I haven't processed yet - I got back from Glastonbury to find that I have 20 credit points from my first two courses! I was amazed that it took as long to mark my sociology course as it did for me to take and then have marked my science course! Hopefully my history exam (arg!) when I get it won't be anything like long to wait. I also got the sample paper in the post but I'm trying not to read the notes so that I can try to do the questions under timed conditions and then read over the notes and see where I need more work. Once I've got my slavery essay out of the way, that is.

Well, thanks to the stalwart help of [livejournal.com profile] oxfordslacker, [livejournal.com profile] timscience and [livejournal.com profile] damiancugley I have got tickets for everyone I promised in my previous post. Due to lack of forward planning on my part those are the only people I have got tickets for - if I'd remembered to get cash out before setting off I could have got more but they sold out while we were getting to the Tesco cash point and back! That is now IT for Oxford tickets, although there are some in other bits of Oxfordshire (see this is Truck). Also none of the online tix have gone on sale yet so it's possible that more will become available. I've signed up for the mailing list just in case, as Jenni tells me the advanced tix haven't been announced on that yet...

Edit Online tix are now on - does anyone need any more?

Truck tickets go on sale 10 April online and in real shops - Fopp is the Oxford outlet this year. If you want me to get festival tickets for you (or, actually, dispatch Alex to get said tickets on his lunchtime on Tuesday), comment to this post before then!

OK, so now it's a week to go before Truck. Certain people are coming over to stay at my place, I believe ([livejournal.com profile] coalescent, Tom, Alex's Dad & bro on Friday night). So, I thought, what about a pre-Truck BBQ? We could all get together in my garden and people could roll up whenever they're ready. So turn up in my back garden any time from 6:30. If you want food or bread buying for you, please let me know - I'm going to put in a big Tesco order to turn up that evening and I can add yours to that if you want. You can even come if you're not going to Truck :)

PS If you don't know how to get to my back garden, poke me for details...

Emptied of expectation. Relax.
