London meetup update:
Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese -- very slight change in plan. The Johnson Annexe is available from 6.30 only and contrary to what I was told, it will set 15 people for eating. ("But we managed to get 20 in at Xmas".) [more inside]

We should be OK for numbers as people will be arriving between 6.30 & 8 but we may have to spread into other bars later to make way for other Mefites eating.

IMPORTANT: It's a restaurant annexe so get your drinks at the bar downstairs before going up to the room.

The room is on the second floor BTW.

So, are you lot likely to stay in there if we exceed the 15 limit? I won't be there till gone 8, and I know it's a bit of a rambling pub, so some clue as to where to find you would be nice.

Somebody will be in the room but I've emailed you my mobile number just in case.

Ooo, do I have to eat? Except, I'm not really hungry today.

I shouldn't have had a big lunch.

Thanks for that i_cola. I'm sure I'll track you chaps down somehow. Save me a seat!

If anyone wants to know where we are, my phone number is on this page, along with an email address that gets forwarded to my phone.

Also, I'm almost certainly gonna eat.

For recognition purposes, I will be wearing a multicoloured dreamshirt of undescribable hideousness.

For stealth purposes, I am wearing all black.

ALA -9999px T Shirt. Atrazine: really? I bet you're actually wearing all black stuff.

Gotta go, jump on a train.

I'll be wearing a beard.

I will once again bring a selection of markers for shoutout use.

Thanks to my daughters, it appears that I will mostly be wearing toast.

As usual, this meet-up featured far too little Turkish Delight. And pitching of tents. I expect better next time.

Okay, fess up. Who hit their head?

What are you implying? I didn't hit on anybody.

I'd just like you to know that I'm eating Turkish Delight right the fuck now.
posted by flashboy at 6:19 PM on January 12, 2007


Pitching of tents still means what I think it means, right?

You dirty pervert.

Schtop it with the Turkish Delight already - it is a foul substance should be banned. And, yes, chrismear is a doirty perv.

My head doesn't hurt as much as last time but it was a really good meetup - possibly the highest turnout yet? Now we just need teh pix.
posted by TheDonF at 2:27 AM on January 13, 2007


Oh God, no please, not the pics!

Quinn and I were metafilter meet-up virgins and you guys welcomed us with open arms. Thanks.

and just a plea for a few more women. Honestly they don't sit around all night talking code, we talked about shoes, circumcisions and Portobello mushrooms.

Didn't we? I mean its not like I remember anything about last night...... ;-)
posted by Wilder at 4:25 AM on January 13, 2007


Mmm, yes - the pics are going to be, well, interesting. IIRC, I seemed to be on a "make as many stupid faces as possible" mission last night. Which I may possibly have done well in.

The venue was great - an ideal size for us, especially after Optamystic sweet talked us into getting the large downstairs room.

March for the next one or how about some time around Easter?

You dirty pervert.

Look, I can't help what God made me.

You dirty pervert

Does that therefore imply that there's such a thing as a clean pervert?
Actually, I think I started the tent pitching conversation...
