Hang on, I spotted you first! Of course Genes did mention the pints...

DD, unfortunately I can't make it. And I know what the kitteh looks like, so probably could have spotted him (advantages of being on FB...)

I know what Genes looks like as well, having met him twice!

Nora's in London, so's Genes.... can't think of - oh, wait, Blip was but I think she moved...


Yes, I moved to rural Buckinghamshire last December (not far from Oxford, for possible future reference).

I'm only here for two days, and I'll be working most of the time, but if all goes well, I should be able to have a coupla pints tomorrow evening sometime after 18.00-19.00... Preferably somewhere near my hotel (i.e. near Paddington), seeing as I'm flying out at 6.30 am on Monday...

Anyone thirsty?


Bollocks. I'm in the Smoke tomorrow for 24 hours from about 18.30, but I doubt I'll be able to get away at all.

I did. But I gave him the benefit of the doubt, and assumed he was standing on a box so that he wouldn't look like a shortarse.

Thing is, whoever took the picture must also be a giant, as it looks like they're looking 'down' on Genes and the Kitteh.

There's no need to look so happy, the pair of you!
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Well then. Genes was standing in a hole, or the two of you were standing on different steps.

And Fall is right, in fact you both look a little anxious if anything. Jut who, or what, was behind the camera? ;)

Just a passer-by. I was knackered, though, to be honest... too many flights in too few days.

EDIT: Speelign. :doh:

That I can well believe. Were you capable of speech? And where are you now?

More or less... Killyhevlin now. Flying of to Saint-Petersburg (Russia) tomorrow at 06.30 am, but I'm two hours away from Belfast, so I'll probably take off from here at about 2. And I won't make it to St.-Pete until 01.30 am the day after tomorrow. And then I have to get to work by 8 am. Dammit. :smug:
