Sure: I already sent it there, but I guess Alf's getting some kip if it's not an automagic process.

I have lots of elastic bands at work. And pens.

I will put them both at the bottom of my name tag

So, that's where this new album is?

Steve says:

What on my name tag?

neel says:

I think Kate's "new album" is still in the early mythological stages of rumour and hearsay.

Sorry, Steve: only one gold star.

neel says:

Hmm. Even given the organisational hurdles, I'm not sure I'd want a real one. That might feel a little bit too much like a too-permanent mark that this is something we have to continually reinforce the memory of.

It's odd, and I can't really explain, but I sort-of think that that would run contrarywise to the "business as usual" approach. I know I'm not a Londoner, but... erg.

Or something.

Heh. Just seen Alfie on the ITY news.

"9th December 2004 - Kate tells fans album is 'almost finished' and due 2005."

Mind you, if she's been working on it for a while, 'almost' could mean anything as it's a relative term.

Just been to your blog and only just noticed the addition in red pen to the top band...

What does it say?

And where did you get the idea for doctoring these rubber bands like this?

It's a "MAKE ^child POVERTY HISTORY" wristband (official, not pen): our shop supports Save The Children, so we sold their merchandise during G8 week.

Helen says:

Hmmm, not sure how I feel about that particular distinction... but I guess it fits better with Save the Children.

(slight aside)... of course, it's easy to be passionate about child poverty in Africa... when it's seen in the UK it's sneered at... (/slight aside)

For wristbands, minimum quantities can be in the thousands, and usually a 6 week to 3 month lead time. I think perhaps the WNA message might have moved on a bit since then, but I could be wrong :)

Helen says:

I just meant, in this case, that it feels strange to distinguish it from the rest of poverty, from all poverty.

But then of course I think poverty is the wrong word altogether and I am in danger of 'going off on one', when it really isn't all that important. The sentiment's a good one and it has made people think/more aware.

We do have a lot to work at within our own country, but hell you know that. Children in Need does do a good job to highlight it.

I may have stumbled into the wrong room, sorry to interupt

That's alright steve, I'll let you off ;)

You've hit the nail on the head there, Helen. CiN is one of these big donation/appeal things that I actually quite like. Hurrah for them!
