have been offered a last minute plus one to an obscure awards event

but the Jown Lewis free fizzy wine event is tonight

which would you pick?

the most famous person at the awards is likely to be a moderately senior accountant

well there is no one to have sex with right now so there could be no chill

it has to be A or B

both have free wine and snax

one might be good for mingling but probably not

one might get me a discount on some christmas baubles

I love the sleeper, love!!! So romantic and cosy. I have never been north of Edinburgh on it but think would be nice to go to fort william that way.

Re train I live much closer to the railway station in Edinburgh and Kings Cross is as easy for the office as city, really. So it tends to be convenience/ also we have a stupid climate change policy where we are supposed to get the train where possible.

But the train is more expensive. Hmm. I really want to do the sleeper though. Scenery is supposedly lovely and I quite fancy bringing my book and just sitting in the bar carriage until I fall asleep.

 

well the sleeper isn't more expensive than transport and a night's accommodation, necessarily

the scenery on the train is lovely but you're better to go on the daytime one for that (particularly as it goes up the east coast, which is nicer)

so I turned it down and told the inviter why I am turning it down and I think he thinks it was like "washing my hair soz"

faod the reason for not cancelling is that I am meeting a friend and it would seem a dick move to say "hi babes I can't come any more because I have tix to Paperpushers Extraordinaire 2018 ceremony".

Well if you're not going, one of us can. What should we tell the doorman? I guess it's not "Fidelio" yet again...

Trix I heartily rec the sleeper to beyond the wall - so much more relaxing than airport faff (I love sleeping on a train or boat).

reserve a cabin to yourself unless la familia are coming with  obv

Actually, to note, Aberdeen by train is a pita by day so definitely sleeper that if you don't fly it's INTERMINABLE

But the train is more expensive. Hmm. I really want to do the sleeper though. Scenery is supposedly lovely and I quite fancy bringing my book and just sitting in the bar carriage until I fall asleep.

 

You won't see any scenery as it'll be dark!
