I'll second every word of that paragraph, individually and collectively.  I
wanted to go to Wantchester, sorry, Winchester, for the con last month, but I
had already made a commitment to play the organ at a friend's wedding, and she
decided to get married that Saturday, so I couldn't make it, which was a
complete zog.  (If Rachel had wanted me to be bridegroom at her wedding, rather
than organist, it would have been less of a zog... ;-) )
