Tolkien Society AGM - Durham part 1

Rumours of the Amon Hen editor having two puddings on Friday night are true.

Rumours of the ex-TST (aka Blueshed on LJ) manager failing to eat all his sticky-toffee pudding at the AGM dinner are true (!!)

Rumours of my having two puddings (sticky-toffee pudding & chocolate torte) at the AGM dinner are false.

Honest ... Na'Lon had eaten half her chocolate torte before I got to finish it off for her. Sadly I couldn't relieve Blueshed of his as I had to go back to wrangling Na'Quis as the speaker began a rather good talk that made several of us (friends of Pennypaperbrain) smile for reason he was not aware of!

St Aidan's College, whilst further from the city than initially expected, had great views towards the Cathedral and the staff were very very welcoming - the catering was great!

(For Pennypaperbrain's benefit he was talking about Tolkien & Rupert, magioc, myth/legend and landscape)

Mmm, puddings...

Although slightly accidental, my Durham Dessert Duet does seem to follow on quite nicely from the Coventry Confectionery Combination in establishing a tradition for me to have more than one lot of afters with at least one meal during the AGM weekend - what a hardship!

Oh how you suffer! :D Mind you I had 1½ puddings at the Annual Dinner - it would have been 2 but for Na'Lon ordering me away from Blueshed's ½ Sticky Toffee Pudding to get Na'Quis off to sleep.

It would have been 1 pud only for you, if you'd actually given me half of the sticky toffee one as originally agreed.

Oh, no. Not Bitter At All.

I think Blueshed's sticky pudding failure is fairly adequately explained by the fact he had banoffee pie for elevenses. And again for 2nd elevenses, that morning.
