Hard News: Public Address and PressPatron,
Any chance of a weekly contribution? (I get paid weekly so would find that easier but suspect there could be additional overhead costs to set up all options.)
Lovely post, thanks Emma.
I was in the Botanic Gardens on 14 Feb and it was all I could do to not go sit under a tree and cry once the trees stopped "dancing". I had a cry in the car on the way home to North Canterbury instead. And I'm not really sure why. Just, well, everything with these bloody earthquakes (past and recent), seeing the lovely new buildings, and the still fucked ones which were so beautiful and grand before, and the sadness I feel seeing the houses with broken windows and overgrown lawns and thinking about the upheaval in the lives of those who may have lived there, and, and, and...
Thank you, Claudia.

We attempted "gookenail" once - somehow managed to get the chicken inside the goose but could not squish the quail into the chicken (so it was served on the side). Delicious but will stick to the birds individually in future...
Up Front: The Song of Angry Women, in reply to
I have been feeling very angry in that "oh god, I have no idea what I can do about this" kind of way so I'm extremely grateful to you for your suggestion. I'm shit at games but am so going to go and buy Gone Home (and Ninja Pizza Girl (thanks Greg)) simply on the strength of them being the sorts of games that the GamerGate guys would hate. So cheers for that.

Southerly: Confessions of a Social Retard,
Previously I was definitely one to bolster my (non-existent) confidence with alcohol in social situations just to cope.
[And with that in mind, apologies to Russell for half-pissed incoherent mumblings at the Dram Fest one year.]
Now I find it easier to make excuses to not attend - I don't *want* to be trolleyed in order to cope, but I don't want to be miserable when I've reached the point of needing to escape but feeling I can't.
One of the things I really love about PAS is that, reading the discussion threads, I don't feel like I'm alone, even though I've never actually met more than one or two of you. I can't tell you how grateful I am for that.
Incidentally, I scored 30 on the test. I'm not really sure what that means...
I can only echo all the previous sentiments - I've much enjoyed, and learnt a lot from, your blogs and books. Many thanks.
Southerly: We Haven't Forgotten You Christchurch!,
Arse biscuits. Was so looking forward to this and am now feeling totally distraught upon receipt of reminder about bastard after work meeting being brought forward a week early to tonight.
Am hopeful everyone will be prolific enough to warrant another Chch launch!
All the very best for this evening.

Wow Ben - <3!
