A flying update, to let people know that the next meeting of the SE5Forum will take place at the Institute of Psychiatry, Denmark Hill, tomorrow (21st) evening at 8pm. Two things to note from that:
- Institute of Psychiatry? You don’t have to be mad to live here, etc.
- Tomorrow evening is also England’s crucial Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia, so *puts sexist hat on* expect the evening to be dominated by the fairer sex.
As this was rather sprung upon us I won’t be able to attend, unfortunately, as I already have plans in Central London (which mean I miss the football too). However, if you have time spare and would like to get involved in helping the area, rather than talking about helping the area, it behoves you to attend. Did I use ‘behoves’ correctly?
Fun in the power cut around Peckham yesterday. In my area of East Camberwell we lost power for 5 minutes at around 8pm, and 20 minutes at around 11pm. I understand from friends and comments here that other areas were affected worse. The scariest part of the experience for me was seeing how light it was outside, even in a black‐out; the light pollution really is stronger than I’d imagined.
No time for more today; do please attend the SE5Forum meeting if you can, even if only to be a spectator.
Update: A quick plea for help. I realise we are living in a disposable age and this probably makes me a bit of a caveman, but does anybody know a good place to get mobile phones repaired? I tried the place next to the Green, but they don’t do full repairs. I bought a phone second hand and it has a small problem which I think could be easily fixed, so I don’t want to buy a brand new one. Can anyone recommend a repairman?
