Eh wot (London Forumer Meet-up)

SwillSwill Registered User regular
edited January 2011 in Social Entropy++
I come to you today to check the plausibility of a forumer gathering sometime around new years

in london

i know ya'll are notorious for never actually having a meet up

but i come with promises

i will literally give you a hug if you come

i will be somewhere around there for a couple days before new years

and maybe a week afterwards

so lets talk about
-what days you could come to london
-who all wants to come
-how rad my hugs are

    Between Christmas and Valentine's Day? You have picked almost the worse time for me to get time off work.

    I don't think I can make it.

    In all seriousness if I were still in London I would have been totally down for this. I've met one or two forumers and they've been cool people.

    Hell, if December wasn't so tight I'd be up for jumping on a plane and popping over. It sounds like good times.

    Let us all know, FAQ. If I missed an opportunity to meet you I would be very very sad


    As for London around New Year's Day, I don't know. My hours are very weird and if I have assessments to finish, I might be too busy :(
