want to see them .. so I can be jealous!

anyway, I had some pints and thought of you :)
Back in one piece also, you're a lovely bunch :hug::
Thoughs on you are a waste then, Alex? Awwwwwww! Not really, eh?
I did think of you there in London (in the rain?), and then sang the wrong text :oops: :biggrin:
at least I am a bit wasted at the moment .. so I should concentrate when typing ;)
I do!

I do! *stomps foot* and I do and I do! *more stomping*
Pot-bellied pig wants to know it as well!

ferny's trip to London;

  • Get to Kings Cross. Ticket says to take 30 min underground trip. I take a 2 minute trip on the (wrong) train but find where I want to be is a 5 minute walk away.

  • Bursting for a wee so find toilets. Have to pay 20p. Grrr.

  • Go to Burger King and ask for a cheeseburger. The guy tries to sell me a breakfast thingy. I give in and say I'll have a bacon butty. He serves me up an egg and bacon butty.

  • No milkshakes at Burger King. Grrr.

  • lostprophet says he'll be 50 mins late.

  • I go for a long walk around London, arrive back at station to find a txt from Becky. Becky finds a drowned ferny.

  • Lil Loui arrive, Tempra decides to show.

  • We go a wandering (after Louis, Tempra and I getting lost at the station 2 seconds after we start off) to the British Museum. Then walk past it and get something to eat and drink.

  • All waddle into the Museum, see a dead cat and then vanish in our own directions. Becky later tells me I whiff a bit.

  • Andy and I look at some dead grannies in coffins, find Becky and then go Tempra hunting. Find him playing in the Kings Library with Louis ( ;) ;) )

    Then it gets hazzy for me. Did sweet and salty happen before or after the first pub? Anyway...

  • We go walking through London along the Thames, I run off to find a toilet a mile away and pop up somewhere other to where I popped down. I think. Had to pay 50p. More grrr.

  • Cross river, walk, realise I've been taking pictures on the same bit of film for ages as my camera is fudged, cross river, pub.

  • Tempra reveals his obsession with pillows.

  • Home

As I said they are crap so I guess I'd better go again next Sunday and take some better ones ;-)
looks like fun! I do not really know Li Loui though.

Well, will let you know when I travel via London next time, so there will be either another meeting or I just visit you one by one and plunder your fridges ;)
