    18 hours from now I'll have been kicked out of bed by a cruel evil vicious Lensman to get ready for the car drive.

    I'm at History Friend's house right now, waiting for another cake to finish cooking. Can't wait until tomorrow.


    EDIT:

    And it is EXTREMELY hot here, bruing lots of water, suncream and wear shorts or something. Otherwise you will die.

    Why was DD in your leather jacket?

    I'm really excited now. In ten hours I get to wake up, get a train to London from Wakefield and then make my way to the venue.
    Hmm, seeing as a few of you are southerners you won't have had parkin will you? I may make some tonight. Because coffee and baking is SO much better than sleep.
    I now have a blog. Have a look if you wish. It contains those naughty profanities that you won't find here. If you like what you read send me a PM, or if you don't like it. I'd like to know how many people here read it.

    Whoa, last minute panic! Thought I'd lost my train tickets then. Luckily I haven't. Also, I should really be in bed. I have to be up in four hours.

    I'm just about to head off for the airport.

    I've packed Kubb, It's Alive!, Nuclear Wars and Bohnanza.


    However, it might have been a mistake to start the tv while checking some last minute details, as I ran across 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'...

    Good morning everyone! I'm on the train night now, with free wifi which is rather nice. I have not had anywhere near enough sleep damn you coffee you wicked brown temptress. I think I'm going to try and sleep on the train. King's Cross is the last stop so it's not like I'll sleep past my stop. I've done that before...

    I'm at the airport now, all checked in and stuff. Found even more Bassett's winegums, so there will be an absolute abundance of them at the meet. Doesn't mean that it all needs to be finished, though.

    Will arrive at Stansted at about 11:25 and then make my way fast as I can to the pub.

    Also: Skype ID: kureshtin42 or MSN ID [email protected] will get you in direct contact with the meetup. If you want to.

    we have a poor connection, but a valiant attempt. The local Troglanders have decreed that Archie was victorious for actually bringing a KNIFE to a Skype fight.

    I was actually in on the Skype convo as well for a while. Big guy with the NPC t-shirt. NOt very talkative at that point, though, as there were lots of people trying to talk at one point. And we were trying to kill Imperial officers and send Storm Troopers into their inevitable doom.
    We did try to get you in on the Star Wars game for a bit, but the connection died on us when we tried that.

    Awesomeness. Pure, unadulterated awesomeness.

    KuReshtin: Wine gums. Tasty. Thanks.
    Bath: You are almost as crazy irl as you are on the forums.
    DD: *backstab*
    Curly: COOKIES! Amazing cookies.
    Hamish: Didn't speak to you much, but the games of Bang, Flux and Munchkin were awesome.
    Spanner: I prepared Explosive Runes this morning.
    Crown of Thorns: You were v quiet to begin with, but was a very fun game of Nuke War. Congratulations on being one of the last two standing.
    Thufir: Again, awesome flux games and an epically amusing nuclear war game.
    Eld: Your thingys that I can't remember the name of were nice, you do your cooking ability down.
    Archie: Thanks for blowing me up.
    Lensman: Darn, I didn't manage to lose you on the way back.

    Pictures and such will come once I've filtered through them for the good ones. No, I'm not going to get rid of all the ones that have me in...

    Hi guys! Had a great time, and you're all totally cool (ones who showed up anyway).

    Anyway, I'm back safe and sound, and look forward to seeing you all at the next meetup.

    I might make some custom T-shirts similar to the one I had today if people want them.

    Back at the airport, waiting for the gate number to be announced for my flight back to Glasgow.
    It was great meeting everyone again (or for the first time).

    I have to say I was pretty happy with the surprise I got from Hertz when the Focus (or similar) turned out to be something resembling a bus (they gave me a Ford Galaxy).

    Better report from me once I'm back home again.
