    Anybody up for anything? The only fixed thing for me is the date.

    I'm going to be south for a family event so as long as it's reasonably close to Farnborough (Guildford, Woking, Farnham sort of area) I'll be happy. Doesn't have to be a curry either.


    NB. The date is wrong, it'll be on Friday 7th, not Saturday 8th.

    But I'm escaping the country the day before, sorry!

    Could do - and let me know if you want anything from Aldi/Lidl. You should get them by the turn of the decade.

    Alternatively, if you're in Mallaig this weekend come say hello.

    Still on an enforced no-fat diet so a curry night would be torture!

    I went no-fat after a heart scare, and TBH found stuff like rice, lentils and vegetable curry worked well. I'm better now but still trying to keep the meat n' dairy to a minimum.

    As for whether I could make it, possibly but probably a bit far--Farnborough is a 35 mile hack down the motorway from Rickmansworth by bike, with no sensible train options: though if it is a nice clear night with a nice clear M25(!) it might be fun.

    Not convinced even a veg curry at a restaurant won't have a fair bit of oil (and I really can't tolerate anything more than the smallest amount now) used in cooking.
    Home-made curries are pretty good - using fat free yoghurt for a creamy sauce with a good bit of added spice works well enough.

    I could well be up for this.

    There's a nice Nepalese place in Farm-bog-horror.

    You're about 3 days too late for me as things stand. I expect to be moving on the Thursday before.

    I was hoping to get away from work that day but the barmaid is on holiday and the boss is out for his son's engagement party, so I'm going to be at the pub all night

    Might be able to now - slight issue with title on the house that I'm buying means that completion might be pushed back a bit.

    I've booked a hotel in Farnborough.

    Nepalese sounds good to me so I'll be in the http://www.gurkhapalacerestaurant.co.uk/ from about 7 o'clock onwards.

    If I get an idea of numbers I'll book a table nearer the time.

    They are an abstract concept humans invented to compare an arbitrary or imaginary set of objects. Naturally if you explore the concept fully, it becomes absurd for example the sum of all numbers to infinity is -1/12. That may be correct but it's still bollocks. I think you're better off having no idea...
