Are you going to Polyday?
It's this Saturday, 14th October, in the Blackfriars/London Bridge area of London.

Are you coming to Polyday?

Not sure yet, depends on health/finances/stuff.
No, it's not my sort of thing.
I'd love to, but I'll be in the wrong country.

I will be there, along with my partner otterylexa, metamour rowan_leigh, partner twice removed fluffymormegil, tocotox artremis, and whatever a tocotox's primary partner's called, oilrig. Argh! The jargon! It burns! hehe. My primary wuzzie has no inclination whatsoever to come to Polyday itself (too many people for his introversion & little desire to talk to strangers about emotional stuff), but he should be coming into town to meet us for dinner. So you'll have to grab your Richard time when you see him.

I'm running a workshop/session/thing along with Anna ofiwriter: it's called When poly meets real life and here's the blurb from the programme:
Love is infinite, but real life has definite limits. Time, money, distance and health are just four of the resources that can stop us having as many lovers, partners or relationships as we'd like. How can we do non-monogamy with these limiting factors as constraints? How can we achieve the best balance between the relationships we'd like to have with infinite resources, and what's actually possible in the real world?

This workshop will be particularly useful for people with disabilities or chronic health conditions, as well as those with other life limitations. However, the session is open to & should be beneficial for all, as none of us have unlimited time or finances! At no stage will you be asked to reveal any personal information about your life limits; sharing a problem or answer with the whole group is entirely optional.

It's from 2.30-3.45pm, which is quite civilised - but I've literally just looked at the programme and seen that we're clashing with Safer Sex. I hope that won't stop too many people from coming :/
