03:55 am: Just back from Retribution. Somewhat better experience than last Saturday. People seemed to like my skirt. Had the new boots on again and my feet hurt a lot less than they did last week. Only got mildly drunk, which was good (and indeed necessary as going to the toilet is rather involved with that skirt). Danced quite a bit. Sang my filk version of "My Own Worst Enemy" instead of the real version. And a strange person in the toilets kept talking to me about Placebo, and how Brian Molko had kissed her on the cheek. And I seem to have arranged to go to Whitby in October. It will be my first one - what should I be warned about?

1. Take far more money than you expected to.
2. Spend it.
3. There are, apparently, bands. The people are much more fun however.
4. You can wear The Boots all Whitby with enough codeine and alcohol and caffeine.
5. Whitby is cold. It's where the goth leather trenchcoat really comes into its own.
6. The cabs are cheap and efficient when the weather is unfeasibly vile and/or your feet refuse to work (see 4.)

I'll add more as needed.

1. Does Whitby not have cash machines? (I guess it does but there are long queues of goths waiting to use them all the time)

5. goodgood. i knew there must be a reason for it.

Er, yes. I mean, have more money saved up for the event than you thought you'd need ;-)

I once did Whitby on 20 quid total with no cottage, sponging like a sponge. It's fun to do once but I don't recommend it.
