To quote from Spank's Edinburgh Diary 2005, published 29/08/2005 on the old site: "It almost makes me sad that I won't be [at Edinburgh] next year. But you know the rules: two years on, one year off, meaning that my next visit will be in 2007. I already have tentative plans for what we'll be doing as a replacement in Summer 2006. However, I don't intend to start banging the drum about those plans just yet. Being a monkey, and all."
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call bloody foreshadowing.
