Saturday, just after 6 in the evening. I gave my talk at 1. Met Maryam last night, also Paula Kirby, and Rhys Morgan, and Alex Gabriel.

    I’m too broke for even then short jump across the Channel. (And I’m cat-sitting.)

    Fascinating. Really, Ophelia, could you make every post as bland and uninformative as this one? Thanks.

    Wut, is this like the first time you’ve ever read a post on Butterflies and Wheels, boggle?

    Some people…

    Yes, do you mind, boggle?

    Our Ophelia is feeling laconic.

    @’Tis Himself:

    The word “our” was unnecessary.

    “The word “our” was unnecessary”

    It’s OK, it’s a North of England thing, as in “Our Mam”, or “Our (insert name here)”.

  8. 8

    I hope ar/ower/our Ophelia is ok, and not taken with a touch of Stendhal syndrome, as is likely amongst visitors to Manchester

  9. 9

    Next time I meet Paula Kirby I fear I may be in for a spanking session. I’m feeling slightly apprehensive.

    Ya I totally understood the “our” as Northern. I really liked being immersed in Mancunian and Lancs and related accents for four days – I liked being in a place where the default accent is Northern.

    I didn’t so much like all the football shouting. There was a match the day I arrived. Urk.

    (I’m back.)
