Archive for the ‘dome’ tag
Well, today was the day I’d set for anyone who was interested in forming a Speculative Fiction Writer’s Group in Albany to meet at the Dome Cafe. One person — Tammy, who by chance had seen the notice in Angus and Robertson this very morning — turned up. So, that makes two of us to start with. I’ll persist and try and get a few more people, and assess if this idea has some promise in a few months. I really hope I (or we) can get it up and running.
It’s 2009 — many years since 2001: A Space Odyssey — and today I had my first every video call! My Dad who got a webcam for his birthday last week, called me up and we had a nice chat. Unfortunately, it was all a bit one-way as I don’t have a webcam myself!
Yesterday I investigated The Dome café in Albany, and enjoyed their Wi-Fi, a peppermint tea and a big bowl of their lovely potato wedges.
People who know me well will be amused (yet unsurprised) to learn that I absent-mindedly dipped a wedge into my peppermint tea instead of the sweet-chilli-sauce; and furthermore, I came disturbingly close to taking a sip of sweet-chilli-sauce instead of my peppermint tea!
