*waves* over here!
Cath Sparrow
So are you going to be over here then?
Pixelgoth
I suggest we meet at Liverpool Lime Street at 1pm smile.gif I thought I'd already mentioned times earlier in the thread but just to reiterate wink.gif

We need a definite spot so when I pop to Liverpool in the near future I will choose a specific place if that's OK? unsure.gif

SPS, you coming to 'pool?!?!?!? dry.gif
Cath Sparrow
Pixie dearest trust me on this Limestreet Station isn't that big we will be able to find everyone easily. I will surgest the benches outside the opening to WH Smiths as a specific place because it probably is the best point and the most obvious point and also when I seem to meet people when we haven't even stated a place. tongue.gif
Dont panic about it it'll be fine we will find you. biggrin.gif

OK smile.gif
Wyvern
Well mistress Frogg has prodded and poked me and hopefully, all appendages crossed I will be coming to Liverpool.
As ever it hinges upon my boss and the infinite kindness I'm hoping she will show in granting me that weekend off...things are currently about 60/40 against but I shall employ ever device at my command.

If necessary I shall learn to batt my little eyelashes and look adorable, not that it will work on her but I can at least then say I tried absolutely Everything!

Basically a load of people from the board get together somewhere and have fun. See threads about previous meets:

(Note: these are in the order I found them, not the order that they happened. They may also be meet-planning threads, photo treads or whatever, I can't be bothered to read through them all)

Glasgow, July 05

Camden March 05

Nottingham Jan 05

London Nov 04

California July 04

Possibly Winchester Jan/Feb 04?

There are others, but I can't find them as the Search thing won't let me search for 'meet'.

I've just realised how bored I must be to sit and look up all this stuff for you.
Cath Sparrow
*Gives CM a round of applause* You only missed 3 that I can think of unless there's been over meets in London. You missed the very first in Birmingham and the 2nd notts meet which was under the name of Candingham and the Manchester meet which is under the name of Inkies Hen weekend I'm pretty impressed though for an unintiated forumite.
Mata
As the photos show, alcohol is usually predominant theme for the meets too:

Believe it or not - you can just about see my hand and chin in that picture.
Sir Psycho Sexy
The interesting question is why in the name of greek buggery am I sucking on my thumb?!

Was Shaun's top inside out still at that point?

Oh wait...I remember, it wasn't greek buggery, it was greek dessert, sticky sweet goodness! tongue.gif


Edit: Oh yeah, meet, will try, April's so far away though, would like to not miss it, I havn't seen Sam since that confused hug and palming off of money at the first meet in Brum!
Usurper MrTeapot
No, I think I ran to a dark corner of the tube to switch it before anyone noticed, a bit late for that I think.

And why, of all pictures with me in the background somewhere, pick that one!

Oooh! Theres me in the back with the blonde hair! *waves*

Fantastic night, fondly remembered. smile.gif Can't wait to do it again some time.
Faerieryn
Smiler and I will definitely be there. Not sure whether we'll be staying with his family or elsewhere but I have just discovered that Travellodge are doing a super saver at the mo with rooms for a tenner a night. They appear to be currently available at the right date and pplace so...
froggle-rock
Sweet price for the rooms! I thought I'd be cheap and go for a hostel tongue.gif

See you there, hunny.

You have absolutely NO excuse to miss this! tongue.gif I am going down to Essex on the Thursday before to have a memorial for my Mum and then I'm driving back up on the Friday after the service.

And you know what that money was for and, before anyone says it, no it wasn't for sexual favours!! laugh.gif
Smiler
Looking at those pics it seems I'm good for drinking, fishing trips and Matthew Broderick impressions- hmmm 1/3 wont dissapoint anyone will it? wink.gif
Yep Ryn and I will be there. May stay at my Dads just on the outskirts one night but we'll probably be up on Friday coming home on Monday so as to get 10 tickets there & back.

He lives near Stoke so not near Liverpool. If anyone has his number send me a PM and I'll try and get in touch smile.gif

BTW Cath, I will not be able to meet you for the first time if you don't come to the meet sad.gif

Also, do we need parental consent for anyone under 18???? unsure.gif
Wytukaze
Hmm. Surely someone under 18 would get parental permission by default? If they don't, I don't think it's our (legal) responsibility. That said, I'm not planning on attacking anyone, or letting anyone get attacked, or drink, or take drugs, or suddenly mutate into something hideous and unmentionable, so we should be fine.

Oh, just to make it clear, I'm not suggesting any minors do come without parental permission. Go get it!
Cath Sparrow
DONT PANIC! I will be there.
and I do actually have a number from the last meet for Inky I'll PM it to you Pixie. See I do have most peoples numbers (wonders who should be worried them or me).

Looks like me and the Faerie are gonna rough it at my Dads instead of the hotel cos its all a bit pricey. May have a last ditch at the YH but in vs. 0, 0 may win out

CATH, you recon they'd fit us all in at the food restauranty diner thingy?

I think so, may have to squash up or spread out a little but we'll have a damn good go.
