For those who might be interested, we will be having a mini spring bash on Friday the 8th.

ClipHead will be visiting the smoke and thought it might be a good excuse for a beer or 10 and a get together.

Venue tbc.

If anyone has got a guitar please bring it along (Cojak is obliged to bring her Ukelele). :D

No guitar I'm afraid but should be available to help with the beer or 10.

I should be good for that. No guitar, but I have got a yellow plastic recorder if that's any good.

As it happens. Weekend away has been cancelled due to a norovirus hitting the MF family. Seems fairly contangious. WFH and the toilet today. I'll be up just after six this evening. Hopefully some of you won't catch it.

Phroar. Man. Been in this cubicle at the pub for 25 minutes, squits and cramps something awful. Real off putting as well, some fella 10 minutes ago banging on the door, 'Hurry up!', 'Hurry up'. Told him I'd be some time 'Grrooooannnnn. Not again' he shouted and then I heard the main door slam shut.

Poor fella. Hope he's ok.:emb

no its a combination of things, the main one being that she was offered a shift this pm at 14:00 - 16:00

so we talked it over , and reluctantly bowed out. no more to it than that

@BGG : Thanks for the chat, could well prove life changing.
@HJ : It was nice meeting you. Look after BGG. :D
@Norrahe : Thanks for organising, and of course putting up with me.
@K2P2 : I did only ask 3 questions about the London to Brighton cycle ride, it could have been worse. :ohwell
@RealityHack : You came late so got squiffy suity. We shall meet up as planned. Watch PM's.
@AussieGuyWhoNeverPosts: You sir are a gentleman, and I enjoy listening to what you have to say. The next time I am in town I would love to pull up a chair and listen some more. :D
@Zippy : Nice to see you, to see you, nice. :D
@Mr Zippy : Good geezer. Look after Zips. :)
@Owly : Missed you early on. Glad when you showed, made the night. :hug:
@Scragmeister + Mrs S : Lovely to meet you. Mr S was very quiet.
@Bunk : Nice to meet you. Very quiet.
@Incognito : Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh :D
@Sockpuppet : :wave:
@Anyone-else : You were sad enough to slip even suity's attention. Up your game next time. :wink

Most notably : MF Did not turn up, even after his offering of playing rounders. :D

Bedwetter. :rolleyes:

realityhack

Bunk was there? Damn, I missed him. Was he sober this time? :wink

Not that I can possibly comment.

Owl/Clip, well that was an eventful after party. I ended up getting a nightbus! Bizarre, but fun. Did either of you pull in the end? :tongue

realityhack
9th April 2011, 09:03
I should also point out I had half the top deck of the nightbus singing and having a bit of a laugh by the time we got through Chelsea. I was very wired last night!

You can say that again... brilliant to see those two out.

Thanks Nor, and thanks for repeatedly helping me out with the correct pronunciation of 'Cailin Maith'.
Lunch, City, I'll use the corporate charge card. :D

Zippy - get your lad to get in touch if he's after work.

Once again a pleasure meeting you all.

Thanks Norrahe for organising, was a great evening and good to meet some old and new faces. Mrs S enjoyed herself.

@Suity, not surprising I could hardly get a word in edgeways once you got going. :P :D

@Sockpuppet, will give you a shout when we have our bikes in London again.

Good turn out, until next time.
