"I'm with rapist" would really make a very good t-shirt. We could market that.

Man, I could do with some Ayingerboost right now. And a shave.

Nice to meet you all, very amiable bunch of fellows.
posted by Pretty_Generic at 4:08 AM on March 27, 2005

Jesus, I know I tend to gesticulate quite a bit in my conversation, but it seems I spent the entire evening gurning and wildy throwing shapes. With my fearsome red eyes.

Yous all were lovely, anyway.

How's yer head, dodgy? I'm impressed with the speed you got the pics up.
I had a real laugh. It was worth the trip up from town to meet y'all. Oh, and P_G/flashboy - any 'cocaine & hookers' stories from the Spanish Bar? (",)

Shit. I just remembered the Spanish Bar.

Thanks for the octopus, flashboy.

Oh, lordy. I only just remembered about the octopus. My head hurts quite a bit today.

My head hurts. A lot. I'm going to saw the bastard thing off to stop this horrible pain.

It was great to meet all you guys, you couldn't have been more splendid. I'd take a bullet for any of you chaps.*

So flash tell us more about this octopus you were carrying around with you.

Right, I'm off to post all your photos on Am I Hot Or Not. Let's see who wins.

I want flashboy's shirt. Man, that meetup looked good, wish I could have been there downing huge pints with you.
iBook based shoutouts are the rage.

orthogonality - makes sense.

Oh, 13th Floor Elevators!

looks like you guys had fun--and what spanish bar?

i do! i do! both conceptually and physically ; >

I too want flashboy's shirt.

hmm. i just rated this hot motherboard (dual processor, five memory slots, the biz) and the site just showed me another (butt ugly, cheap onboard graphics, no way you'd be seen with that in public). how do i get to see what others thought of the hot one? or is that site just a tease - a bunch of ugly mobos got together and planned how to trick someone into clicking on them?

Kicking RAD! Your shout-out format is awesome.

BTW, anyone who missed the 1st episode of the new Dr Who - it's being repeated at 7pm on BBC3.

kenko, first person to get the shirt of flashboys back gets it.
starts seductive dance in front of flashboy. *wiggle wiggle* ......while turning up the heat to max..

And Pretty posted the torrent link to it in the last thread--it's really good.

Dance seductively all you like, dabitch—my dart gun, loaded with darts coated with powerful tranquilizers, will win the day.
posted by kenko at 8:46 AM on March 27, 2005

You have no idea how hot I look in full medieval armor. ;)
posted by dabitch at 8:49 AM on March 27, 2005

Okay, I'm going to have to vote this best meet-up pick ever.
posted by taz at 9:20 AM on March 27, 2005

er, "pic".

(maybe "pic" + fat Irish cock = "pick"?)
posted by taz at 9:38 AM on March 27, 2005

so apparently your ugly mugs broke MeFi. ; >
posted by amberglow at 9:39 PM on March 27, 2005

Agreed Taz.

I like the creative shout-outs. Very cool.

A young Soupy Sayles?

Thanks for the pics, was really nice meeting you all!

faints due to armor and heat. kenko darts flashboy and wins...

What Spanish bar? I'm guessing Sevilla Mia - downstairs in Hanway Street?
posted by benzo8 at 2:50 AM on March 28, 2005

No waaaay, I've spent many a shitfaced hour in there..... Was it there?
posted by dabitch at 5:03 AM on March 28, 2005

Yeah, that's it. The one below the Troy, then across the road for tapas and flamenco. Oh, the octopus, the octopus.

*looks down*

Hey, what's this dart sticking out of my shthsclrdddddddd... *thud*
posted by flashboy at 5:14 AM on March 28, 2005

That looked like a riproaring good time.
posted by sciurus at 5:32 AM on March 28, 2005

It was certainly hilarious - can't wait to do it again.
posted by keijo at 5:42 AM on March 28, 2005

Sorry I didn't make it down to your boat race meet the next day, keijo. I was having some difficulty with things like "moving", "standing upright" and "speaking" the next day. "Drinking coffee" and "watching The OC" were about the limit of my abilities...
posted by flashboy at 6:11 AM on March 28, 2005

Excellent. Thanks, P_G.

Ah, it felt so good to be back in London, hanging out on the screen of an iBook. Good 2D times.

No one spilled beer on quonsar or amberglow, did they?
posted by gramschmidt at 6:48 AM on March 28, 2005

No worries flashboy, the weather wasn't too good anyway. Although it was a fun event, with a people flashing from their balconies (why is baring your body such an English thing? :)) and just a huge amount of people around. All good fun, but we'll do something later I'm sure.
posted by keijo at 7:54 AM on March 28, 2005

Pretty_Generic, have any UK relatives now living in Dallas, Tx?
Seen your English born double in the USA.
posted by thomcatspike at 10:27 AM on March 28, 2005

Yeah - Thanks guys.
dash. I'm holding you personally responsible for my lack of callout.
I thought we had something special man.
posted by seanyboy at 12:18 PM on March 28, 2005

seanyboy: Damn - I proposed you, honestly I did. But, well, I guess not everybody made the cut. *shrug* Oh yeah - and you're fired.

KevinSkomsvold : who the hell is Soupy Sayles? Google doesn't help at all. Should I be flattered or horrified?!!?
posted by dash_slot- at 12:25 PM on March 28, 2005

Soupy Sales was a comedian and for a short while a kid's show host in the 60s...He's most famous for telling all the children watching to go into their parent's wallets and purses and take out all the green paper and mail it to him.
posted by amberglow at 1:24 PM on March 28, 2005

Ooh, bizarropeege.
posted by Pretty_Generic at 1:25 PM on March 28, 2005

Thanks, amberglow. I think...
posted by dash_slot- at 3:29 PM on March 28, 2005

he was very fun--tons of energy and smiley and always cracked up at his own jokes. ...On New Year's day, 1965, Soupy asked his young audience to go to Daddy's wallet and get those "little green pieces of paper with pictures of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Lincoln, and Jefferson on them, send them to me, and I'll send you a postcard from Puerto Rico." This led to a suspension (most people believe he was fired outright). ...
