It's that time of year again as we prepare to deck the halls with bows of high strength supermarket lager and make merry at the fourth annual Swipefest. This year, Roberta, Rowan and yours truly will be meeting fans of the show from around the world in wonderful old NYC!
That's right, we're hoping for an even bigger turnout than we got last year at the Milton Keynes Bowls and, if our predictions are anything like correct, we can anticipate an attendance up about fourfold on last year. So, let's hope all eight of you do turn up because otherwise booking Carngie Hall's gonna look a tiny bit over-optimistic.
As always, the event will be themed and we've gone a bit out of left-field this time. So, anyone who is thinking of turning up should bear in mind that they may well look somewhat out of place if they don't enter into the spirit of things by donning the traditional fancy dress. Still, by opting for a theme like cheap whore/slut/dominatrix, this year we feel we've left you plenty of room to be as imaginative and downright obscene as you have been in previous years. (I for one will never forget Rowan's novel approach to postage stamp application when we opted for a 'Return to Sender' theme in 2003. The imprint of the Queen's face is still just about visible down there, you'll be surprised to learn. So it just goes to show what can be done with a little imagination and a whole shedload of depravity!
I'll admit - this wasn't quite what I was expecting to find when I googled the word 'Slut'
As an added bonus, my big sister Roberta

will posting a day-by-day convention diary to keep you all posted with the wild and crazy antics we've been getting up to, so do keep checking in on us while we're away as there's a fair chance the handcuffs and mouth gag costume I'm planning for my big sis may even help to keep her sober enough to post at least once this year. Before I sign off, I'd just like to welcome anyone in the NYC environs to venture forth with a few suggestions regarding nightlife and general activities for our busy team of convention organisers. We're pretty open minded with regards to nights out on the town, so keep the suggestions coming.
Love on y'all,
