Wow, what a weekend!

Here's a few snippets I captured:


Spanners with his chocolate award


Mildred, Allen Key, Deanery and Clara. Sorry about the red-eye, they're not all evil...


The whole posse - from left to right: Deanery, Clara (back), Kelly, Mildred (back), Swoop, Allen Key, Spanners (back), General (standing), Amanshu, Ooood (back), Malcolm (ear). Next time we're posing for a group photo!


Amanshu provides beard massage and hand relief to Malcolm and Ooood as Spanners watches incredulously


General's head explodes onto a seemingly unconcerned Swoop


Kelly spies GIN!!


The walrus and the carpenter.

I'm exhausted so I'll leave the blow-by-blow accounts to others for now. Suffice to say there was chocolate, beer, hotels, beer, fantastic chinese food, beer, awards, poker, vodka, missed alarm calls, excellent food, reinterpretations of the term 'convoy', and a wheel far too big for any human to safely exist atop of.

All in all it was a great weekend, you guys are all fantastic and we're doing it again same time next year!





Edit: Sorry I didn't get to meet you, Doughnut... that was a flying visit!

I was very impressed with the turnout and with the quality of the people, that was a weekend jam packed with fun, cheers all.
I'm quite pooped out too, so I'll just post a couple of pics before sorting the rest out later.

Amanshu, tongue out again:


Ooood, spotting something out of the corner of his eye there


Something being plotted!


A very stern look from Spanners. I think he thought his sweet and sour chicken was under threat.


And a new and stylish take on the idea of glasses.


I'm looking forward to the next one!

I'm sorry not to have met you too (may be next year), but it was great to meet the rest of you. It's always good to be able to put a face to a name. I would love to have come out for the evening with you all, but I went to a friend's hen night instead. One day when I'm feeling brave I may post a picture of what I wore last night, but at the moment I'm too afraid of the amount of derision I will inevitably get. Enough to say it was a white Abba type outfit, with an electric blue wig

Cadbury World was a good laugh. It's fairly tacky, but you do get plenty of chocolate (not enough for Ooood though).

Clara needs to do work today, but can't due to beer, lager, gin, vodka, food, food, food, food and food!!!

Top weekend everyone. More pics please!

That was a most convivial weekend, it was fab meeting y'all. Again! Again again!

Hmmm.... After some consideration it's possible I might just need to work on my smile a little bit more... I mean I was sure I had it worked out this time around, but by the looks of it it all went horribly wrong somehow.

Top weekend though! Plus I got home to find someone had done the washing up! I couldn't believe it, I was a lost and confued man, as I'm sure you can all appreciate!

Wahey!

That was such a mighty weekend. Much respect to all who attended.
I started throwing together a meet page last night but I was a bit tired and Bad Boys (whatcha gonna do when they come for you?) was on so it's just a few pics at the moment.
http://forum.thedaddy.org/meet.html
Can anyone who has high quality pics (i.e. bigger/better than the ones you post here) email them to me so i can assemble them on the page? Also can anyone scan in that cadbury world pic?

And it was good.

On its way. Least I could do after such a momentous weekend. Also, a profitable use of work's time as I was 'training' myself to use our new scanner...

I have larger version of the pics in the first post (1600x1200) - over half a meg each though. Do you want me to mail them to you?

Also: My teeth hurt

Edit: I think gmail was still sending when I clicked a link to more pics - did they arrive?

Clara, you are so right - in fact I was actually pondering the whole being-encouraged-to-sit-on-the-stunted-knee-of-a-giant-anthropomorphic-cocoa-bean-for-photographic-purposes incident yesterday, when it occurred to me in a blinding flash of light that the substance said cocoa bean was made out of was almost certainly LEATHERETTE, and not in fact leather (cadbury world being v. lovely, but rather tacky, after all)

I can't decide if it is a good thing or a bad thing that somewhere, someone in the world has, at some point, fashioned a large brown bean out of leatherette. Hmmmm.....

Awesome page! One small error though... I think 'Kelly and General enjoying the Chinese' is actually Clara and General

Glad Swoop took it well when he found those pics on his camera (we'd left mine and Spanners' back at my hotel room). Hey, we were even considerate enough to mop the coffee paste off his snoozing face before he woke up

The smiley face didn't really work though, did it? I did have to use the blunt end of a pencil to apply the coffee, hence the shoddy penmanship...

Oh yeah, sorted.

Also it is worth noting that despite having his pretty much universal Forum absence significantly highlighted with the "Most Absent Poster to Turn Up at the Meet" award, Deanery has still to put in an appearance. What be that aboot?

Well, I have done my best to rectify that situation, but he seems to be resisting... Any ideas?

Fab page - thank you for the VERY flattering pic of me noshing me Chinese!

It looks like you're trying to remove something from the back of your throat Clara, wisdom teeth perhaps, or a plover trying to make a nest?
To be honest though, I don't think anyone need worry about unflattering pictures, given the lovely job that various people did of me...
