We prolly will have a wander around the market, I just figured that Chalk Farm was less of a hectic station to meet at. Also, you're number 3 tongue.gif If you PM me with your mobile number then it'll be easier to find you on the day.

Blimey, hi Demoness! I'm intrigued about what brought you back after all these years.

Hello mate smile.gif

Offline I'm usually called: Sean
Number of people coming so far: 5
I'll be arriving: I live here
I'll be leaving: ditto
I'm up for meeting during the afternoon: F'sure, assuming I recognise any of you buggers after all this time. I'll probably spot Mata, apparently he's blue these days.
I'm up for going for an evening meal somewhere: Probably, if it's somewhere reasonably affordable.
I'm up for going to a pub in the evening: Again, probably. If nobody's got any other suggestions, there are two very cheap and good pubs on High Holborn, the Princess Louise and the Cittie of York. They're both Samuel Smith pubs.
I'm up for going to a club in the evening: This will probably stretch my funds beyond the point where they snap and ping off the wall and hit me in the eye.
Staying the night?: Live here!
Accommodation has been arranged?: Yes!
Can offer accommodation to others?: Afraid not...

Posted by: Mata Jun 28 2009, 01:08 AM

Polo too? Cool!

It's Pride that day? Hm. London's going to be busy then, so we'll just have to stick off-route a bit. Pride's a nice day out, but I'm not sure I fancy doing that next week.

Posted by: CommieBastard Jun 28 2009, 08:27 AM

London Pride's a bit disappointing IMO. I don't know why, we just don't seem to kick out the jams as much as other cities.

Terribly selfish of me, I know, but Bumeyes McGee encorporated can only be at the meet until about half four/ fiveish- so I wondered if we might be able to do something interesting and cool after meeting up instead of the usual Camden thing?

Posted by: Mata Jul 3 2009, 08:19 PM

I think the plan was to head to the park rather than wandering Camden. I'm not sure if there was a plan B for rainy weather contingencies.

I'm travelling by coach, so may be plus or minus some time depending on the traffic. I've got Pat and Bumface's numbers, and probably a few others smile.gif

Posted by: funked)out_frog Jul 4 2009, 09:03 AM

Y'all can come back to mine if it rains? Or we could go look indoor stuff. Science Museaum, anyone? Anwho- see y'all in a few hours happy.gif

Posted by: Mata Jul 5 2009, 01:22 AM

Thanks for doing the organising Froggie, I had a great time!

Demoness: we had a wander around the market but couldn't spot you. Send me your mobile and we'll make sure to give you a ring make time!

Posted by: funked)out_frog Jul 5 2009, 10:35 AM

Rob, that icon is very appropriate. No one in Order of the Stick knows what it is, and at every meet at least one person asks me who you are. tongue.gif

Posted by: Cath Jul 6 2009, 08:50 PM

Well dont ask me I've not a clue who he is...

Posted by: Mata Jul 6 2009, 10:26 PM

So... Who is he again? wink.gif

I really did have a lovely time this weekend. I know I said that before, but I think it was just what I needed. A nice chilled afternoon with friends in London. Groovy times.

Posted by: funked)out_frog Jul 8 2009, 01:23 AM

Twas a good day *highfives*

Posted by: saucy_tara Jul 8 2009, 03:52 PM

Am in there like swimwear for the next one...I'm up for some serious clubbing times! The Matameet where we ended up in Slimelight was rather wonderful biggrin.gif
