I'm disappointed I missed the last meet, probably would've been flying over Afghanistan at that point. But, since you all enjoyed it so much, we can have another one now I'm in the UK, sound good?

Wait. There was a meetup a couple of weeks ago, literally five minutes' walk away from where I currently am?

Damnit. :(

Can someone email me or something the next time this happens?
This is a placeholder until I think of something more creative to put here.

New meetup attempt

Where: London Film & Comic Con at Earl's Court Exhibition Centre.

When: Saturday, July 9th, 2011. Apparently standard entry starts at 11 a.m., so probably some time around then.

Why:
1) It's a geeky event, so should be enjoyable.
2) Keozen of this board will be there, exhibiting for his & Moo's webcomic, Moo & Keo.
3) It's my birthday on the 10th, and it would be nice to meet up with some cool people from the fora around then.
Please note that despite the lovely avatar Sungura gave me, I am not a medical doctor.

Possibly my proudest moment on the fora.

Double posting for bump:

I'm going to be in London next week, is anyone free for a drink at some point?

I can't say when exactly as I don't know what's planned, but I should be able to get out at some point.

So! I, as a longstanding LONDON forumite, would very much like to be welcomed back here after my departure to plymouth for a few months.

The problem here is, I have no friends, as pretty much all of them are at university!

So I was thinking that perhaps a few of you lovely londoners might like to meet up (I am especially fond of Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese) that would be lovely!

Time (and I guess, place) to be decided!

I will be back in the vicinity of London between Christmas and New Year, and perhaps for a short period in early January. I realise this is unlikely to coincide with anyone else's meetup plans, but if a meetup does take place in that timeframe, I'm totally in.

Well, I'm still set for the 29th.
My flight-tickets are booked and my accommodations sorted, so I'll be there come rain or shine =)
Is everyone set on the venue being Ye Old Cheshire Cheese? If we want something to eat I'd recommend meeting somewhere else first and then moving to the Cheese. Feel free to vent your opinions.

I will most likely be bringing Swedish candy.
