WeeJ
I'm sorry to break up the flow of the thread somewhat, but I'm sorry guys, I don't think Mat and I are going to be able to make this one. Its a money thing.

Sorry guys sad.gif We'll be there for the next one.
Mata
Nooo! The only solution is to pimp out Mat. You know it makes sense.
WeeJ
Sorry guys, as much as I really wanna come, there are things I'm going to have to start spending money on in the very near future.
If anyone wants to come down to Tamworth/Redditch/Birmingham to see me and Lea, we'de both love to see you biggrin.gif

Mata, you owe me a drink with Jonman! Still up for it some time soon?
Mata
Probably. I went up to see Jon a couple of weeks ago. Money is a bit limited for me too at the moment (still) but I'd like to see Jon and Kat more often so I might be in the area soon-ish again (although it's their turn now).

Anyway... Getting this thread back on track... Who's coming on May 15th?
Industrial Kybosh
Not me, sadly. My time off is at a premium what with wedding plans and so on, so it came down to a toss-up between this one and the one I have semi-planned for September. And, seeing as I really have to be at the latter, it won out in the end.

Sorry, peeps. You'll have to mock my pathetic drunkenness another time...
poppa.moo
Will there be a designated meeting place?
Would love to, since I'm making a come back I may as well do it in style! I'll have to check train times though. cos then it'll be cheaper than a hotel, I only live in York. I'll postpone putting the info down until I'm sure on trains! But I'll only be there on Saturday only, whatever happens!

Usually around lunch time at the train station but that'll be confirmed closer to the time.

Why don't we just shufty it to a few months away?

Might you still be coming up for the Wendy House? or are your funds lacking to?
Mata
I might be along anyway, I've got some friends up there. There's a juggling gig that I was offered about a month ago for 300 on that day, if that's still going then nearly one-month's rent is nearly one-month's rent, but it's probably gone and if it has then I'll be up there. I'll let you know.

If people have more money towards June then maybe we'll do something then, perhaps a bit more informally, perhaps a night in a pub in London or something like that.

The next fairly scheduled thing is InKy's wedding bash thingy stag party doofer, that's in September in Manchester I believe, but that's Mike's call so we'll have to get him to work that one out.
Industrial Kybosh
It is indeed my call, and called it will be, in good time. I'll most likely post a message around June time with tentative plans, thus giving everyone plenty of time to sort stuff out.

It's a damn shame this one didn't take off, but rest assured that the September bash will go ahead even if it's just me that attends. Excuses to party hearty must be grabbed with both hands, say I.
Cath Sparrow
Here! Here! biggrin.gif

Will there be scantily clad ladies, who gyrate for money?

I mean, I realise that it may not be to everyone's taste, but it's a stag do! Gyrating ladies are pretty much mandatory!
Mata
I still plan on going up to the Wendy House on the 15th if anyone else is up for it, but I doubt I'll be there for doing lunches or suchlike, so I'll just see people in there if anyone else comes along.

Get enough cider into Pixie, and I'm sure she'll oblige... wink.gif

We'll just have to see how the day progresses. If lady gyration is popular, so it shall be. If, however, the group votes for Laser Quest, eating hammers, formation farting, beetle snorting, or lying on vents, then those options will also be looked into.

So long as there is booze, I'll be a happy chappy.
Sir Psycho Sexy
oh oh!! LASER QUEST!!!! *bounces excitedly!*

edit to sound more manly: closely followed by scantily clad gyrating ladies of course
Polocrunch
*Deepens voice and swaggers unconvincingly*

Yes! Bring me ale and bring me women!

*Thumps table*


[/manliness]
Mata
Err, actually I'd probably rather stick to the laser quest, I've not played that for about 10 years I think...
Polocrunch
No, damn you! None of this sissy Laser Quest - we must all over-compensate for our sexual and emotional iniquities by hiring pole-dancers!
Mr Fuzzy
I'm shocked at you all for not seeing the obvious solution. Laser Quest with strippers. Every time you shoot them, they remove an item of clothing.

/me slips off into a funny little world

I admired you before, but now I would seriously consider worshipping you as some kind of minor deity. HOLY FRICK THAT IS A GOOD IDEA.

LESSTHANTHREE FUZZRA!!! YES!!!
Cath Sparrow
Watch it Polo you don't want to boost his ego to much it migh explode and then there would be Fuzz every where! biggrin.gif
Tarantio
meh. still cannot make it. just spent seventy quid on paintball ammunition. shot a bunch of neds in the sore parts... biggrin.gif

so im skint for three weeks... joy.

ill see u guys at the next one hopefully.
Mata
Money has been short at my place and a lack of other people saying for sure that they might be out at the Wendy House tommorow means that I'm not going to be there either. Instead I'm staying at home, getting drunk with couple of friends and trying to avoid watching Eurovision, which Sues is a big fan of.
Cath Sparrow
Unfortunatly I didn't avoid that fate. Cause seeing as I was very short on money at the beginning of the month I went to see another friend in Leeds cause it was going to cost a hell of a lot less to do and she decided to enforce an Eurovision Night on us! dry.gif
LoLo
I hope you guys don't mind but since this has passed and was canceled, I'm going to unpin this now.
Mata
Oops, I'd completely forgotten to unpin this!

InKy, if you're around, do you have anything date-ish for your stag bash?
Industrial Kybosh
The event is never far from my mind. Looking at a weekend in late August (to suit Pab). Date to follow moderately soon.

You will have prior warning, fret ye not.
Pab
WARNING: It is ultimately conceivable that money could be a bit tight around about that time ... You might want to to just plan it without making allowences for me, just in case I don't even make it. Right now it's looking 70-30 which is not the 95-5 that it used to be ... :(
Mata
Pab it would be great if you could come.

Late August is still a good time for me. It's not looking likely that I will suddenly be flush with money and jetting off to the Burning Man this year, so that shouldn't clash. The second weekend of August is a juggling convention that Jon and I have been going to for over ten years and I don't miss that for anything, so obviously I'd rather you avoided that weekend.
CommieBastard
I return to the country on August 11th, so any time after that suits.
Cath Sparrow
If it's going to be August the end would be better for me as it's nearer payday and I'm going away at the end of july beginning of August so will be skint for the rest of the month! dry.gif
Mr Fuzzy
Pay? What is this 'pay' of which you speak?
Industrial Kybosh
Late August it is, then.

No plans set yet, but it will be a simple affair centred around drinking booze. So if you ain't 18 (or convincingly 18-looking enough for us to deny any knowledge of your secret minor status), you ain't coming in.

Sorry to lay down the law, but that's the way it's-a gonna be.
WeeJ
Someone shout at me for not reading back and looking myself, but where is this going to be this time?
Cath Sparrow
Manchester biggrin.gif
Queenie
Woo!! Another meet!! Hopefully i can come!! Got a few festivals to go and work at towards the end of Aug like week beginning 20th me thinks till end of that.

Hopefully i'll be able to see you all again! laugh.gif And Cath the flea ridded matress is still in my room!! tongue.gif
Cath Sparrow
Yay! tongue.gif

Sorry for the spam! unsure.gif
Pab
A few words from Cath and a healthy disregard for what my bank manager calls 'reasonable' has led me to up my chances of being there to a 95-5-with-aggressive-proactiveness level. This kinda means I'm gonna be there, so don't leave me alone, on my tod, in Manchester, with nought more than a username and password to defend myself with.

Inky: I wanna talk music, cos I've waited about 25 years to talk with one who gives a monkeys like I do

Everybody else: long overdue, guys, long overdue ...


Somebody find a B&B that appreciates the economical reality of life away from home...
Mr Fuzzy
You definitely want more than a user name and password in the cheap portions of Manchester. Might I suggest the addition of a chainsaw/rocket launcher? ph34r.gif
Pab
I am informed that the ability to roll a 'tulip' and looking like something the cat would never, ever, bring in is enough to survive the greater part of the Mancky experience. Failing that, I'll just have to kit myself with an earpiece/mic combo and drop lines like "all clear, charlie down in midnight hamster wheel' ... It'll gimme 30 seconds of leeway at least ...
Mr Fuzzy
You're still better off if you look like you'll pull nunchucks out at any moment...

Farming with nunchucks. That i'd like to see.
Mata
Actually they were originally. They were used to thresh corn I believe. Many of the more obscure martial arts weapons were farm tools that were then used for fighting with. There are whole forms that use small wooden benches.
