Also, does anyone have a new head? My one isn't working properly this morning.

Yay, photies! (Although I think need to change all instances of louigi to adrianhon.)

My photos are stuck on my stupid camera with its stupid proprietary cable that I can't stupid find.

I added a couple to the pool this morning from my soooopa-high-quality camera phone. And, yeah, it should be adrianhon

The picture that cillit bang took of me is breaking Aperture.

However, I should have everyone cropped and exposed as best I can shortly.

Writing up epitaths for your mum's headstone will keep you awake at this hour.

On that note - more photos here!

Also added them to the pool.

Well, that's me hungover.

Chrismear, I snuck into your flat and removed said cable on the grounds that yours are the more incriminating shots...of me that is!

Zounds!

Tell us the story about this, plz. (what a nice shot!)

Well, there was this bird, see—and also a parrot...

I'm the one with the crazy black hair. Waiting for sueinnyc's photos... how late did things end up going? I snuck out around 10:00...

Looks like a fun time! : )

The pub is a very old building. The sign said rebuilt in 1667, cute. I think the bird was stuffed but I may be wrong. There were lots of little touches to show you how old and quaint the Pub was.
And if that bird wasn't stuffed, he certainly was by the end of the night. But it wasn't me.
posted by Wilder at 10:19 AM on January 13, 2007


Oh I left the pub about 11ish and lots of people were still going strong.
posted by Wilder at 10:20 AM on January 13, 2007


louigi - hi! Never again will I deem any Mefites ignorant of the Golden Ratio.
posted by TheDonF at 10:30 AM on January 13, 2007


louigi, who's the bird sat by you? She is the only one unnamed in the group photo.
posted by randomination at 10:46 AM on January 13, 2007


Oh yeah, TheDonF, this is the EGG thing that keeps your veggies nice and fresh, and you can get it on eBay.
posted by randomination at 10:49 AM on January 13, 2007


Cheers randomination- that could come in very handy.
posted by TheDonF at 12:05 PM on January 13, 2007


taz: the parrot used to live in the pub and it got stuffed and displayed when it died. My lovely gf thought it would make a good shot and Ant obliged.
Great night out guys...

Looks like you all had fun! Question: Did you refer to eachother by your screen names all night or....
posted by CitrusFreak12 at 1:05 PM on January 13, 2007


Looks like a good time was had by all, and the pub made out nicely, to boot!
posted by paulsc at 1:24 PM on January 13, 2007


Wish that the bird had been sitting next to me ... looks like a cool stuffed parrot!

(It's my wife, Rosie. I didn't add a note to the group photo because she's not a MeFite.)

how late did things end up going?

A few of us went to a funny little club after the Cheshire Chuckedusout, and the last of us left there at about 12:20.

Question: Did you refer to each other by your screen names all night or

Those who've been at the last 2 or 3 meetups seem to be starting to use people's real names, but it's still a mish-mash. Of course, there's the chrismear issue to deal with - what do we call him?

paulsc - I'm pretty positive that no one made out with the pub, or vice versa. Sure, it was an attractive building but I, for one, didn't feel it warranted that kind of thing. Maybe next time, tho'

A moment of silence, please, for the shoutout.

That parrot looks a lot like an owl, stuffed or not./
posted by alicesshoe at 2:48 PM on January 13, 2007


They're a spectacularly lovely bunch of folks, not a single flameout the whole evening.

jtron, it would blow your mind if I revealed the actual sockpuppet. Sometimes being coherent is wearisome.

I just added my photos to the MeFi London Pool. Sorry for the delay (and lack of labels).

I had a fantastic time. It was great to see those I knew from prior meetups, and great to meet several more people.

Great pics, everyone. I had a blast. Sue, what's up with me looking like a giant-headed mutant in your first photo? Please tell me you were using a fisheye lens or something. Otherwise, I'll have to go cry myself to sleep on my gargantuan pillow.

I swear I remember having a photo taken of me, the owl and a certain O RLY sign. AMIRITE
posted by hugsnkisses at 4:58 PM on January 13, 2007


Yes, that's one of the photos that is trapped on my camera. Sorry.

I'm going to go out and buy a card reader tomorrow, thus guaranteeing that when I arrive back at the house my missing camera cable will be sitting in the middle of my desk.
posted by chrismear at 5:16 PM on January 13, 2007


Wow, what a large crowd! Cool!

That looks like an awesome meetup and I'm sorry I missed it. Nice to have it at a pub that's notable enough for Wikipedia.

I bought a card reader. My photos are up.

Featuring the ORLY bird (and her parrot), and, shockingly, only the second photo on Flickr to be tagged with pissingelephant.

Okay New Yorkers, they may have won that battle, but get ready to come out swinging next time.

Dude, our pub is older than your city. You had best make your time.

I can remember that one cos I was still sober. Matteo I honestly did give you a shout-out. (was it Sue's camera?)
