In a week's time I'll be lounging by a pool in Singapore, drinking three or four insanely alcoholic drinks in preparation for State of Play V.
I'll be thinking about the dinner that I'm about to have, that will be followed by Glenn Thomas's film "Ideal World". I'll be wondering which of the following two day's panels I will enjoy the most, and which of the workshops I'll attend. I'll be thinking about the dinner the following evening at the Zoo, and the subsequent Night Safari. I'll be wondering whether Doug Thomas will, in fact, be mistaken for a large primate and not allowed out of the grounds, even if he is going to be interviewing John Seely Brown. Oh, and I'll be thinking about chili crab.
I may ask where you and your friends are. I suspect that many of you will be there. And you will be thinking of chili crab too, and so we'll make a plan to head out and get some.
