    I'll try to come 2010. Maybe I'll finally get round to retiring by then

    I'll also try to make 2010. Although as a penniless student, I can't be sure of this...

    Oh woe. I was looking forward to this but I just received an offer of work for tomorrow which I couldn't refuse. If this meetup is continuing into the evening I should still be able to catch the end though. How long is this likely to go on for?

    It usually breaks up a bit when the pubs shut / trains stop.

    It was good. While the boys debated going onto a late licence gay bar I took Rick and Furiey to St Pancras to catch the last train while Rick railed against the unfeeling lord that would make him spend the next hour without the sustenance of beer or tobacco. I feel for him, godammit. It's a hard, cold world out there.

    First pics, we did try to get them up last night but Rik was too drunk, I was too tired, the attachments wouldn't load and photobucket was so so slow...

    Unfortunately Spamalot is now longer showing and we had a lot of late arrivals (some planned, some unplanned) so until I do (if I ever get around to) a photoshop job this is all we had for the group photo.


    At out first pub








    On our was to second pub we discovered something in London I didn't realise was there, but unfortunately due to me accidentally activating the timer on my camera this is the only picture. Probably fortunately.



    I seem to have completely forgotten I had the camera after that so apologies to those who do not appear in the pictures above.

    Another interesting meet even if I was off the alchohol this time. Roll on next year!

    Just edit me out of the fourth one and it'll all be perfect.

    The one advantage of taking the pics is that I'm not in them. :) I think that Meli may have taken a couple though.

    The one with his eyes shut.

    Missed a pic.


    Looks like I didn't get one of lumpthing at all and brennus is hiding behind G&T in the last pic.

    @Mise: So did you all go onto the gay bar?
