seanyboy is in town with his girlfriend, and they are taking time off their busy tourist schedule to meet some London MeFites. If you're around, come and drink beer with us.

(They will be leaving at about 7:30, though, so unless you just want to get plastered with me (which I'm not saying is an unworthy experience per se, just, y'know), get there before then.)

I may be able to pop down for a while. I can't do an all nighter though...

I should be able to stop by in the latter half of this. I look forward to it!

Glad you're so happy I'm missing out!

Yes, so now you should come just to spite me.

Oh. I just discovered this. Oops.

Er, I did mean to come back - I just got distracted and didn't make it. Shops, reminiscence and curry distracted me...

Sorry about that. In the meantime, I bring you, "British Bangers"

hugsnkisses: Sorry I didn't get the chance to say hi before I said bye. It was unforgivably rude of me...

Sorry I missed you, davehat. Long time no see.

Some photos (not spectacular ones) here and on the MeFi London group page.

And that was the last time Chris was seen alive.

Sue, I don't want to disparage your photographic skills, and I'm not the vain sort, but that may be the worst picture of me in existence. God, I hope it's the worst.

Heavens, I actually look alright in some of those photos. Wonders shall never cease.

I have some photos too, but I am doing the usual thing of losing all my cables.

Also, according to my phone, I appear to have filmed myself doing things on the streets of London after I disappeared at the end of the night. That's a new one.

Spill it chrismear... what were you doing...
posted by davehat at 5:57 AM on June 6, 2007

I was not rapping as I walked down Oxford Street. That is definitely not what I was doing.

In more important news, I found a cable, so here's a couple more photos.

Sooo, should we have a duet of my Mims parody the next time I come to London?

I've added another stanza:

The seat of my pants be dragging on the floor
Cause I don't know what a toilet is for

Jizz/syphilis will remain the last stanza, though. ;-)

So, er, here's what I made.

No duet then....definitely NOT rap (actually I LOATHE it)---did you get a big dose of new wave in utero? ;-)

Ah, you were Sroobious Pipping about MeFi. I thought everyone did that on the way home from London meet-ups.
