Went to Cambridge for the weekend, and it was a fabulous mixture of intellectual and debauched. Was nominally staying with libellum, but as it happened we ended up crashing with different people each night - many, many thanks to cantabulous and the Fellatio Villains, and yvesilena who saved us from homelessness (or at least a very long taxi ride). Got to meet the_lady_lily, whose birthday was on Friday, and glitterboy1, who wasn't having a birthday but was charming and very good company anyway, not to mention a number of people I hadn't known before the weekend but who turned out to be utterly lovely in any case.
The intellectual bit was taken care of by CambridgeWordFest - went to some brilliant events, and nearly burst into tears while talking to Susanna Clarke this afternoon. Perhaps not my finest moment - I blame the alcohol and the lack of sleep.
