I'm going to buy my tickets sometime this week, after I figure out how much everything is going to cost me tongue.gif.

Since I'll be heading to London, is there something Dutch-y that I should bring along?

I arrive at Euston at 13.54 and leave at 21.43. Do we have a plan for where/when to meet?

Snoo, I'm sure it'll be the Champion? I think it's calle,d The Samuel Smith's pub off Oxford Street.

I know *where* we are going, I was just wondering if we were going to meet and go there en masse or if I have to find it on my own!

Or another question: What to do when we get there.

It will indeed! Moop and I should be there about 2 PM.

You'll have to find it yourself, snoo, but it's really easy to walk there from Euston station. I promise! I managed it from St Pancras, and my sense of direction is horrible! Obsessive tracing of our route on Google street view helped. I think it took us about 20-30 minutes.

Whee, our tickets are booked, too. biggrin.gif

And BM: it's a pub, silly. I think the "what to do" is fairly self-explanatory. tongue.gif We lurk and we drink (well, you don't, I know) and we talk about random crap. It's a lot like IRC, but in person. And with less frightening links.

Usually. ph34r.gif

Karaoke can be arranged...

The pub is behind The Plaza shopping centre on Oxford Street, really easy to find.

Okay! So...maybe the 14th of April? I'll probably start a thing on FB soon...ish.

We'd love to come to your bday, Sara, but don't think we can make it down to London twice in such a short time. sad.gif


hahah yeah I understood, just inviting people I like ^^
I'll be looking out for your facebook event concerning this topic though.

So, um... It's possibly/ very likely that I'll be in London that weekend as there's a family wedding (not my family - first family do I've been invited to on Jeff's side...) on the Monday in Somerset. As it's in Somerset, there may be plans to go down early but WATCH THIS SPACE as a Daria may appear.


... somewhat older, shaven-headed, and more bouncy than before. Lúl >_>

The obvious course of action is of course to delay the wedding by starting rumours about the bride!

That's a fair point - it's the only sensible course of action. People get married all the time, but if it's been 3/4 years since your last meet then that should take priority smile.gif

Yes! Start rumours! I heard she once wore the same socks for 17 days. Do you really want to marry someone that filthy, Mr. Groom?

(In all seriousness, that sucks that you can't make it, Becky. sad.gif I don't think I've seen you since we had that picnic in the park meet ages ago!)

Okay, started a FB event to prod people who don't ordinarily visit the forums. Mata and Becky, I didn't add you to the list, since you already said you can't make it and I didn't wanna pester you. smile.gif BM, I don't have you on FB at all, but you're still invited! tongue.gif

"Suikerbrood" is sugarbread. It's pretty sticky bread with lumps of sugar in it, very tasty. Advocaat is the Dutch equivalent of eggnog, but slightly different.
