There a chance I might be up for some of the mini meets in the Manc & Warrington area as I have an interview for a job on fri on the Wirral! Woo Hoo! laugh.gif

It has gone considerably down hill since they changed the venue a few years ago but it's still a rock club and much better than the crappy dance clubs like Kingdom and Club WOW! Oh puuuurrrllease rolleyes.gif There is absolutely nothing WOW about that place! dry.gif

Manchester has Jillies and Warrington.....well.......er.......doesn't have much at all but the pubs are nice wink.gif

Wouldn't get too excited about The Wirral. I've never heard anything nice about the place sad.gif I may be wrong, I've never been there but I've never heard anyone singing it's praises either. Having said that it is near to all sorts of cool places like Liverpool, Manchester and Warrington (cough!) so good luck with the interview biggrin.gif

Personally I think the next UK MataMeet should be in the "UK" so Winchester is cool with me smile.gif I'm not really able to get to France that easily and (no offense to the French or people living there) it really isn't my favourite place. I've been there several times and never really 'clicked'. Now Holland, can't get enough of the place! biggrin.gif
WeeJ
I'd really like to get another mini meet together some time soon. February is ages away! sad.gif
Anyone interested?

I don't know what you mean Tara *whistles and tries (but fails) to look innocent* wink.gif

Yep they certainly are! I love Amsterdam. Ahhhh, such culture, such buildings, such weed.....cough....I mean canals! tongue.gif

Yeah my bloke had some when he went to Amsterdam (without me dry.gif) last October and he said that he was laughing sooo hard that his back was in spasms! And this is his idea of a good time?!? dry.gif

Personally when I went there with him this April for my birthday we didn't do any mushrooms but we got stoned. Stoned sex is fab....er.... unsure.gif
Mr Fuzzy
Of course, none of us would advocate illegal activities... Though, yes, it can be.
Sir Psycho Sexy
thats the beuty of it though my small furry friend, in amsterdam such activities are not illegal tongue.gif

of course i'm up for getting stoned in the park in warrington too....mmmm....drugs laugh.gif

Eh? Why Warrington? You coing to Warrington this weekend?

Not that I'm advocating illegal activites. Purely from a drinking and getting drunk point of view! That's not illegal! biggrin.gif
Mata
I think I've got to be the only person whose priority when going to Amsterdam is actually to see the artwork. They have 'The Milkmaid' by Vermeer in their main gallery and that is my favourite painting in the world, replicas and prints don't do it justice... There's something really transcendant about it. It's so peaceful... There's also the Kroller-Muller gallery set in a dutch national park, just a short ride from Amsterdam and that has my favourite scultpture in the world, 'Spin Out' by Richard Serra, it's a truly awesome piece to stand in.
Pixelgoth
Oh don't get me wrong I love the culture that Amsterdam has to offer. It has the beauty of Paris without the snobbery and the laid back attitude that is unsurpassable smile.gif

It's just nice that you can sit in a cafe too wink.gif

Personally I like Edward Hughes' picture "Night and Her Train of Stars..." So peaceful! I did some voluntary work at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, where the picture is, and used to love to sit in front of it and lose myself! cool.gif

I'm also partial to a bit of Grimshaw.

Sorry going off topic again..... wink.gif

Are there any lovely art galleries we can look at in Winchester???
Mr Fuzzy
There is a gallery, but I can't say if it's any good or not, since I've never been in there. We have a whole art college though...

I can tell you some thing cool about The Wirral I come from there originally so if I move back it's free rent! dry.gif

Dammit, I wish I could go to these things... *sigh* I think I'll go sulk somewhere now.
CommieBastard
Soon, young Aidan, your time will come. You must have patience.
Mingtea
Winchester sounds good, I have a few friends down there that I can abuse.
vicrawr
This may sound stupid, but how about having the meet on the Forums birthday and having sort of a birthday party? I looked at Mata's tag and it said sometime in February, to that's close.
CommieBastard
Irish is right! 22nd February, right? FORUM BIRTHDAY PARTY!
Polocrunch
Ooh, I can do London.
That is, if I can work up the courage and effort.

WARNING: I am a complete social leper. I don't drink (much - half a glass of wine'll do me. Beer, spirits - euch! Although cider is nice. Mmmm, Scrumpy!), I am way too sarcastic, I never know what to say, I always feel awkward around new people, if I'm not careful I'll start thinking about having sex with everyone present*, I'm too clever (in a smarmy way), etc, etc, etc. That's the main reason why I wouldn't come. I embarass myself.

Otherwise, I'm just fine. Really. My parents are an endless source of money (the Bank of Daddy never shuts, and never asks for its loans to be repaid), so pas de probleme.


*Honestly. It's a terrible habit - don't get into it! I have only my over-active imagination and bucket-loads of hormones to blame. And lots of porno movies. I wish I hadn't "educated" myself. Ignorance is bliss.

Sounds like a pretty good idea.

I'm currently trying to persuade Sam to come to Birmingham sometime soon so we can have a proper shopping day wink.gif We didn't get to check out the new Bullring whilst at the Mata meet sad.gif
Anyone else interested in coming, let us know.

InKy, you have to come as you're going to get your arse whipped at pool by TWO girls! laugh.gif laugh.gif

No! Progress must be stamped upon! Crush it beneath your bootheels!

prezgfish
