however i'm going to personally moot moot MOOT LONDON BABY,YEAH!

But this thread is about the next moot and it's already been decided that it's in Leeds on 15th May. You've confused me now. You can't vote for a place if a venue's already been decided on huh.gif

Plus Tort, I'm not being funny, but if you can't be arsed to save up then can you really be that arsed to come? unsure.gif

You people have no idea how to party, damnit.  I am fully prepared to, once again, spearhead the Bugger This Shopping Lark, Let's Have A Skinful faction.

I'm with you. In a sort of glazed eye wobbling about fashion.

As I hazily recall from the first meet, you were well up for the "sod it, let's get wrecked" idea as soon as it was suggested by me and my umbrella. I expect nothing less/more from you at the next shindig.

And Queenie, dear - a place that sells booze in a shopping arcade will never in my mind be a true 'pub'. I'm a traditionalist that way, and make no apologies for it. We need a gaff with a jukebox and a cheap pool table. And proper ale. And cider for Fuzzy.

Easy to please, me.

ok ok i'll go into it... resently i have been going to a local bar and making lots of friends having lots of fun a growing this weird thing called a social life tongue.gif i normally got about twice a week and my money seems to dissappear tongue.gif but at sum point i'm gonna sit down and think about it and find some way of limiting my expenditure (sp?) and getting my arse to leeds, also hopefully i'll be getting a part time job... it'll be sh*t but it's more money in the bank... so if things go to plan then yes i will be going...

Yowza. I've never seen so many pround cider drinkers in one thread.

Cider for all! Also, by way of tribute to Dayan, if anyone would be willing to join me in what he and I dubbed 'The Withnail Order', you'd be more than welcome to. For anyone umfamiliar with the film, either of the following will suffice - "two large gins, two pints of cider - ice in the cider" or "a pair of quadruple whiskies and another pair of pints, please".

Yes, I'm a good part of the reason he was so wazzocked at the first meet, but I did warn him...

My first sample of a Cockbasket was that day, too...

Memories...
CommieBastard
Count me in for a Withnail order, though I'll stay away from the gin smile.gif

Edit: oh, and I've been meaning to ask - just what is a Cockbasket?

I claim alleigance to the Cider-Drinking Faction! Yay to cider! It's by far the best drink around, and the only fizzy drink that I'll willingly drink. Beer and everything else can go... do something... perverse to themselves. Except wine, which rocks.

Blurgh. Cider unsure.gif

I used to drink it, and then I realised it tasted like bum blink.gif
Where are the proper drinks these days? Vodka and coke is your friend. None of these pansy alco pops, pumped full of sugar wacko.gif

Poof! That's a girlie drink that is. Get some 'bum' cider down your neck! laugh.gif

Having said that I'm on a diet and therefore vodka and diet coke is my friend at the moment. Curse the fattening cider......until 15th May that is.....
Jonman
May 15th, you say? Righty-o then.

I'm too lazy to figure out where the hell it is at the moment. I mean, come on. 7 pages of nonsense? Pfft, with a capital Pff.

On the topic of Cockbaskets and Withnails, I'm a big fan of Ladyboys, thanks to Alan Partridge. "I don't find them attractive - just confusing". It's a pint of lager with a G'n'T chaser and a Bailey's chaser. Don't know what it is about them, but they mix together in such a way as to cause utter bamfoozlement. Excellant.

Right, add 2 to the list of attendees for Mr and Mrs Jonman.
Queenie
ummm... i'm completely confused - and lazy - as to how many people are coming now an if i'm in charge of sorting out the foodage and stuff!! I'm going to completely get my numbers wrong!!

So maybe to save posting in between the other posts of random things that are going to happen people could maybe pm me to say yay or nay?! Cause may is soon going to come an bite me on the bum an i won't have sorted anything!!

So yep... i now know that Jonman and Mrs, Mata, Mr Fuzzy, WeeJ and Mat, Sam an Ed and Cath are coming def... well i hope so that is 10 including me!! So... yea... who ever else i would muchly appriciate if you could pm me?! Or i dunno... *shrugs* I'm just lazy an don't want to go through the tread again and people have probably changed their mind since!!

Hey SPS, yup, dodgy internet access meant I couldn't get on the net much, but I've moved yet again so now I'm back.

Only thing is 15 May is my friend's birthday which means I'm not going to be able to come...for the third time in a row. Oh flipping heck!!

Just over 6 weeks to go people! We'd better start thinking about hotel booking yes?

On a side note I got asked to go away on the 15th May with some other friends and I remembered to my joy that I was already busy with my Mata Mates! *hugs all round* biggrin.gif

So how do these things normally work then - is there a forumite who's an organisational whirlwind, or is everyone left to their own devices, and things just seem to work out?

I suppose that my question really boils down to "what do I have to do to ensure I'm not sleeping in the street/police station?"

well what generally happens is someone posts addresses and stuff before the meet, we phone and stay there....if we leave it long enough mata will do it tongue.gif, also we can go to his house and look at a map and see where it is so i can sleep somewhere....then we get really very drunk, eat wanton soup and wake up the owners of the B&B and.....well not quite get chucked out >_>

Here are some hotels B&B's that sound ok!! They aren't in the centre of Leeds just on the outskirts!!! But Headinley is about 10-15 minutes away by bus an during the day the buses are very very frequent!!! The last one is in Horsforth (thats where i live) an it's a tad futher out but its near me  laugh.gif Anyway yea i'll call them up to check out prices, when you'd have to be in etc... for you!! Just thought i'd put something on the thread to show that i'm not being a lazy ass an what sort of thing you'll all be letting yourselves in for.  tongue.gif

I looked at more cental Leeds but the prices there range from 60 for a single room 70-80 for a double during the weekend!! I think thats a tad much!! But yea i'll keep you posted... i probably won't call the hotels till tomorrow... have to get some credit so if any of you have any questions that you'd like me to ask them just to find out stuff then just post it an i'll ask them smile.gif

*goes off to do some more searching*

Oh is it too early for me to be doing this?! Am i TOO pre excited!? blink.gif  unsure.gif

Right so now you have to get final numbers and phone all those and see if they have enough rooms available for all of us. Get costs, post them and we decide on the hotel. How's that? Come on Lea look alive, pull your finger out! tongue.gif laugh.gif

Alternatively, we can pick one at random. Costs would be nice though.

I've just emailed two places I found on Smooth Hound (Broomhurst & Abbey Guest House) and also the Travelodge is 59.95 per room per night in case that's cheap enough? I think I might go with that as it's city centre.
