Electoral politics, Happy absence of

current music: The Very Best of Cat Stevens

Last night was SocT's AGM. After a lot of pre-chatter concerning Thursday night's play and subjects of broad and specific interest, the AGM was finally launched by CJ - and to my surprise and delight (old Doctor Who fans will have worrying intimations of Hawaiian shirts at this point) I was elected a Society Hero, following a nomination by footnotetoplato and a flattering speech by emily_shore. cealdis will be president in 2007/8, osymandias secretary, and AG (no LJ) treasurer.

After the voting, and while food was being consumed (Many, many brownies, but not as many as I could have eaten...) I talked to Mrs exactlyhalf about Australian history in TGW, moving to Oxford and the problems and advantages of being on the fringes of the university without being quite of it, hovered for a little around the banquet planning group - what, they want to know, is pellegrina's lamb? - and discussed folk music with shanith, before walking back with aster_dw and colinbj. A good evening.

Congratulations on the heroship! I think it was very well deserved.

Thank you! I was surprised because of the way I've viewed my position in relation to the Society; I've often said that I see myself as having folded myself into it through retconning; but last night (to overcome my reserve) I felt folded into it in other ways. I appreciate it.

Congratulations!

I am of course happy to forward details of the lamb, as long as I'm not expected to do the cooking ;-)

I think that the person to get in touch with can be found at cuddlytiger.org.uk .

- or he/they could ask you directly, as I suggested to them.

Congratulations on being promoted!

Oh, and my lj-account is actually written with an underscore. :)

I'm sure you'd make a *lovely* demi-goddess :)

I agree that your new status is well-earned. Congratulations!

Now I'm curious as to who all those above-mentioned people are! Maybe we should have a post on the taruithorn community wherein we all 'come out' with our offline identities...

Thank you!

I agree for your idea about a post where identities are revealed, but it would need to be co-ordinated carefully. When I started this journal, there were at least two people on my friends list who explicitly did not want their real life identities to be linked to their LJs, and there are things I've written under flocks and custom locks which depend upon my anonymity. We could group-lock it at least.

Agreed (subject to parrot_knight's comments). Some sort of captions on the latest Taruithorn banquet photos would be handy as well ...

Maybe those of us at the banquet should have special badges?
