Just a month away from Christmas, and what a strange Christmas it looks set to be. Even this close to the big day it’s hard to guess exactly what to expect, as predictions waver between a lockdown-free free-for-all and something resembling the solitary confinement wing of Alcatraz following a riot in cell block number nine. One small request in passing: if forced to be a birdman can I have duck, please? That turkey stuff is always dishcloth dry no matter how much gravy you chuck at it, and I don’t care how fond that Robert Stroud was of ’em there’s not enough meat on a canary to make the plucking worthwhile…
Anyhoo: this is really just a quick heads up to say that whatever else is cancelled for Christmas we’re going to do our damnedest to ensure that some Voices fun takes place. We’ll be posting more details soon, but we’re initially thinking of something similar to our Halloween / Facebook meetup but with fewer technical hitches. We’ll be looking into all of that and advising you accordingly, but in the meantime please register interest on the Virtual Voices Facebook Page.
