Bed-in for Deadlines 2011


Three students.  1700 words.  24 hours. 

At 9pm on April the 9th three students came together with the aim of writing and workshopping for their deadlines in the coming days.   What this meeting evolved into was beyond what any of them could have imagined – the great Bed-in for Deadlines of 2011. 
It's that nasty last push before Easter when everything's due in at once.  We had so much to do, in spite of our furious list and tea making this term.  Something drastic had to be done.  There was tweeting, toast, nonsense and not much sleep at all.  I think time actually slowed down at one point, but we got there in the end. These were some of the tunes that made it okay: 

Darwin Deez – Radar Detector
Patrick Wolf – The City and The Magic Position
Los Campesinos – any!
The Pretenders – Brass in pocket
Lennon – Give peace a chance
Nena – 99 Red balloons
And of course, http://www.rainymood.com/ – on loop.



And thanks to John and Yoko, who made it all possible.  

Phew.  Happy Palm Sunday everyone, excited for Easter now!
