Right.  I've told work I could do with the 24th off but if they're desperate to get me in,  I'll go in early and try and finish for 11ish (hopefully this won't be the case). 

If you're staying Friday it might mean you needing to head towards work with me at about 9am and walking on to the convention which is only a 2 minute walk from the pub anyway (thats only if I'm working).  If I'm off, we'll pretty much be doing the same thing but maybe setting off an hour or so later.  I'll be in to work at midday on Sunday so what might work out well is coming with me up to the pub, grabbing some cheap lunch and heading to the SU's circusoc for 2.30pm.  Most of you will probably have headed home by then but I thought I'd let you know anyway.

I'm gonna head to the gig I mentioned earlier at about 7pm so you're welcome to tag along for some beers and good live music.  If you want to see the show I/we can meet you afterwards no problem.

If you're coming by train on the Friday, get to Bristol Temple Meads.  It's about a half hour walk from mine so if you can post your times here then maybe some of you can get in to Bristol for the same sort of time, helping me out.

Whatever you're doing, let me know.  Brap

looks like I'll be coming to bristol for this one. I'd offer additional crash space since it looks like there might be need of somemore, but (a) it's not my space to offer, although that wouldn't be a problem except (b) it looks like i'm coming with a mini-posse of my own and they're all crashing at the same place too.

see youz dere

How am I involved in the matter Nev?  My name and a question mark has left me curious as to what you would require of me :)

If you need to crash, it's all good.  At the moment Toby and Hath have confirmed, yet to hear from Sean, but even if Sean is, there'll still be room.  Just bring a sleeping bag.  What night/s do you need to stay Nev?

How indignant of me - my bad

of course the loobs? part was simply to inquire as to your general well being following the new year festivities..........
but as you brought up the subject of accommodation, if you could graciously provide me with a small 6'2"x2' piece of floorspace for the Saturday evening, I should be eternally grateful and provide you with alcoholic beverages served in half pints (or even a continental fluted glass if this proves more palatable) as means of remuneration.

You're more than welcome Nev.  Yeah... best get the continental stubbys in, I'm not sure I could handle a 440ml can let alone a pint.

I are winnar?

Good convention, Morgan seemed to pipe down for once which was cool.  I nailed string genocides which was cool.  Langerz FTS in 16A was cool.  Catching up with Jem was cool.  Missing the show was not cool but getting a foot long ham subway for £2.98 was definitely very cool.

BOB always being limited on gym space is not cool but manageable.

Good one dayer!

It was good to catch up with you too Loobs. Also good to meet you Lz, Nev, Eric, Hath and Barnsey.

Wish I could have stayed longer into the inevitable session of lager debauchery that undoubtedly ensued!

Although I had a severe case of manflu, which turned into full blown stay in bed flu over mon-tues, I had an awesome time. I ended up hanging out with mine posse doing a lot of clubs and balls and didn't actually meet any of you, but me and my brother had fun pointing out who we could recognize from various videos and being a bit starstruck. first time for us at anything like this, definitely not the last,

Man, I missed this so bad, I really like the hall in Bristol SU.  A whole bunch of my old club made it over though which must have been nice for them...

But if you're in the mood for more of the same in the area.

I had a rather good time. Good to catch up with the diabolists again, even if I did very little myself. Would've been nice to mess around a bit more, but I got really nervous about my performance, so I took myself away and drilled it for a couple of hours. From the response I've had, it seemed to have paid off.

My next one'll possibly be Chocfest or Bath. I'll definitely be at the Ball Ring, though (more information coming soon...)
