Okay, the vague plan for the day:

We meet at 1pm at Cafe Select in Birmingham New Street Station. Check your train times, if you're going to be late please let someone know.

We have tea and say things like 'you don't look a bit like your avatar you know'. Leo tries to chat up the ladeez. I probably get cajoled into doing Mr Snaffleburger impersonations.

We go to Pizza Hut, next to the station, for lunch at 1:30pm. Yep, that's only half an hour after we meet due to PH losing our original booking. If you're late you can phone us and we'll come and get you if you can't locate the restaurant.

After lunch... Apparently there is a new large shopping centre just opened in Brum so there is a plan of going and having a wander around that. BEFORE we do this we will arrange a pub to meet in later in the afternoon (probably around 5-ish).

We shop, get annoyed with the crowds, go to the pub. Those under 18/drivers drink fizzy things. Those over 18 and not driving drink the magic fally over water.

The night degenrates into random pool challenges (possibly), regretable declarations of love and hedonism of the like unseen since Roman times. Or possibly we all just sit around, have a lovely chat and get merrily pissed/sugar over-dosed.

The evening continues, some peel off to go to trains, others stay and insist that _this_ is their last drink.

Eventually we go home/to hotels and fall into a drunken stupor.

To summarise:

1pm Meet at Cafe Select @ Brum New Street train station

1:30pm Lunch Pizza Hut, next to the station

----shopping----

5pm-ish meet back at a pub. Have dinner. Drink.

I think that sums the day up nicely, but make sure you have the mobile number of someone attending the meet in case you get lost/trains are late.

This is going to be all kinds of fun biggrin.gif
Bring your cameras wink.gif

I was going to propose this at the meet itself, but I recommend that for the sake of Mata's already questionable sanity, he does one Snaffleburger impression and then we shut up about it.

20 says it takes ten minutes.

And 10 says I can get him to juggle knives for us.

I have to confess that in recent months I have become somewhat of a lightweight myself. Getting home tomorrow could be interesting.

On another point, this has to be the most fated weekend I've had for a while. It this meet wasn't happening I would be at a friend's party, but today I have discovered the chance to make a fair bit of money from a TV company and the submission has to be sent... On Monday! Three days! And for a lot of that time I'll either be asleep, in Birmingham or both. Doh!

And this explains why I'm still on the computer at twenty past eleven on a Friday night.

I'm slightly nervous about what might be on photos... The great thing abut the net is that you can put up pictures that you consider flattering, but when other people get pictures of you....

*chuckle* considering the loyalty rating of your rabid fans, Mata, I doubt any of us would actually DISlike a picture of you on here....and of course, if we're laughing, we're laughing with you...honest!!! happy.gif

I'm just dying to see some posters in Real Life action....so much gets lost in a Family Album photo most of the time...

How many pictures did you take in the end? I'm sure the amount of light emitted from your flash could have kept a large ship away from pointy rocks!
