Number of new  backers: 3.      Total backers: 128.       Funding £3,804      Percentage funded 76%.    Days to go: 7.

Rainy days and Mondays don't always get me down, but this one has. The new backers are awesome of course and a cause for celebration. The majority are as a result of the conferences last week, so that's good, all this travelling about the place was worthwhile for the project. But today I was waiting for three phone calls, all of which held hope for the project and non of which came. The current increase in backing is great but we are still trending to miss by just a few percent. To come this far, and work this hard (not just me, all the backers, I've had several messages to day from people at work at their desks, supposed to be doing their jobs, but who are distracted by the project suggesting ideas, offering contacts) and miss by a hairs breadth would in some ways be more awful than never having made it this far.

Tomorrow I'm travelling, a collection of trains and planes and automobiles, and as it's me, no doubt a bit of getting lost too, and where will the project be when I finally get back to my own bed?

Still at least the temporary SSP HQ has been entertaining today: it's a budget hotel but they've really made an effort!


PS I accidentally drank a smell experience today. Two cups side by side. You can see how it would happen. Fragrant but not recommended!
