Tom D's Birthday

Went to Tom Davies' birthday, which was about as close to a flashmob as I've gotten to. Eat lots of sweets and do odd things with Mirrors in the Tate Modern

Dear Special Person,

You are cordially invited to - nay, press-ganged into...

"Tom Davies and Joanna Gamper's Up-Until-Now-Highly-Secret-Twenty-Fourth
Birthday Celebrations!"

All activities happen between 12.24noon and 3am on SATURDAY 25th OCTOBER.
One may participate in as much or as little of the events as is practical.

LOCATION 1 - Tate Modern, South Bank (nearest tube - Waterloo)
TIME - 12.24noon precisely

At 12.24, meet on the bridge in the centre of the Turbine Hall. You must
bring with you:-

- A small pocket or compact MIRROR. Alternatively, bring WHATEVER MIRROR YOU

- A bag containing SWEETS. The amount of sweets must be THE AMOUNT YOU WOULD
LIKE TO EAT. Feel free to bring more than you would like to eat. The type of
the sweets does not matter; Haribo would be ideal, but be inventive. These
sweets must be EDIBLE and not have any MEAT INGREDIENTS for our vegetarian
contingent. Not that sweets tend to have meat in them, but there we go.

You will receive further information on the bridge in the Turbine Hall.
Please bring with you a MIRROR and your SWEETS.


LOCATION 2 - A pub near the Tate Modern
TIME - sometime between three and six pm

After leaving location 1, we will progress to one of the South Bank's more
reasonable pubs or bars. If you wish to join us at this point, call Tom when
you get to the South Bank.


LOCATION 3 - Your choice
TIME - between six and nine pm

Six til nine are the officially designated food and changing hours.
Depending on how close you live to London, you are welcome to go home, eat
and change in preparation for Location 4, or to stay with us, eat in town
and change in some toilets, like a superhero or Harrison Ford in the

TIME - before nine pm til 3am

Here is the description of the disturbingly-named "Mind Fluid" from Time

"Kev Beadle and guest Abi Clarke (Soul Jazz Soundsystem) present the best
funky breaks, Latino and anything with soul at this stylish two-floor

This is FREE BEFORE NINE PM and the THREE POUNDS AFTER 9PM. We'll be there
before nine, for we are cheapskates and struggling artists. The night goes
on til three am. Come and go as you please. We know nothing about this club,
but it sounds cool.


God bless you all, and feel special, for this opportunity comes only once.
