ok just to summarise and conclude exact plans: the Crepery South Kensington at say 12:00?

I'm a pretty brunette, 5'8ish with most likely a dark purple jacket and bright green glasses. I don't imagine the place to be huge but how do I recognise y'all? :roll:

Giant xkcd banner?

Dress up in raptor suits?

No?

I'm 5'10", short spiky brown hair, & a goatee -- that usually makes me stick out a bit. I'll be wearing t-shirt & jeans probably (or shorts, depending on how the weather is) -- I'll try and decide on a specific shirt sometime this week to make recognition easier. :)

Here's a somewhat recent pic of my wife & I.

Well, I'm about 4"11, currently with shortish browny-red hair... I'll maybe bring along my bowler hat for easy identification from afar. Sadly I don't own a raptor mask.

If I don't see you I'll just punch any tallish guys I see. The one who explodes presents will be you.

Just wondering... :roll:

Also, I'm eating a cupcake at this very moment.

Should be able to come :) How pricey is the crepery, or rather, how much money would be worth bringing? If I do come, I'll be the brown guy with the brunette girl who is clearly too attractive for him (but obviously don't bring it up) (i.e. my SO).

Any plans for afterwards? I recommend the science museum too...

Hooray! No solid plans post-food. That way we can just eat and chat and get to know each other and see what the group wants to do afterward, whether go check out somewhere like the science museum or just hang out in a park somewhere.

Just wanted to say that my wife & I had a great time with existential_elevator & Artemesia as well as a surprise appearance by Felstaff. It really was a wonderful way to end our week in London.

The 4 hour delay in Newark on the way back home, however, was not.

Sorry I had to leave y'all fairly early (and if I was a bit distant - it's been a bit of a rough week and safe to say, sometimes I forget how to be sociable). I promise marginally embarrassing photos of the least interesting iteration of Dance Dance Revolution to follow...

I had a great time!! Glad you enjoyed it too Pseudo. Your wife is lovely too. I hope you succeed in your plans to move at some point in the future. And don't hesitate to ask if I could help with anything.

I was really pleased that Arte-man joined us a while later too, he was thrilled to see the science museum. I was moreso paying attention to the company ;)

I didn't actually take more pictures; however, I can prove that Felstaff wasn't peeing. That dance dance revolution thing looked like fun. who won in the end?

now that I think about it, I should have so taken pictures of that "do not touch" pole, and Felstaff and Pseudo getting shocked. Oh well missed chance.

I think Felstaff technically won, although I'm citing the left button on my side being broken as grounds for a rematch.

And, yes, the shocky thing was fun. I'm still convinced Felstaff is right in that there was just someone watching us over cctv and shocking us when it suited them since I couldn't get it to shock me every time I touched it.
