I hate that I couldn't make it :(

Reading this just feels me with a sense of loss too as I could have enjoyed myself a lot too I imagine. Or just got really fucking drunk.

Glad you had a good time.

You could have made it, you just lacked motivation!

Most people seemed to enjoy themselves, so I'm sure you would have too. I mean you'd get to meet me. What more would you want?

Ah well. There's always next year. I'll be back.

I was fucking soaked - it seemed like a good idea at the time, though my legs still ache!

You're certainly in the minority of people that have used my laptop.

I suck at Halo Reach - I'm much better at Mario Kart

Have you had a non-alcoholic drink now?

I'm looking forward to the next meet - you guys showed a great spirit (aside from the Whiskey!) and I'd love to do it all again.... maybe without the rain.

You did look rather wet. You seem to have caught the worst of the rain for the weekend as well.

Well, that's always an achievement.

Yea, I'm not really into Halo all that much either. None of the newer ones seem as good as 3 was.

I didn't drink any alcohol for the duration of Sunday and I've been sipping on a bottle of water today at uni. Probably should have taken the day off to let my body get back into its usual routine.

Well, I don't know if there's any kind of official meet in the UK between now and the next Manchester meet, I know myself and Andy have shown interest in trying to get something set up for this summer. Whether it goes ahead or not, we'll see.

nice to meet you Mr dean, although you seemed a little drunk on the Saturday night / Sunday morning, it was still a pleasure talking to you :3

Maybe a little drunk :P

But yea, this is what I like about meets. I don't think our paths have particularly crossed much on the forums, yet it was good fun chatting with you.

I don't think mrSimon got round to singing. I sang a lovely Barbie Girl though.

I heard you sang that and I missed it :(

Thanks for taking photos though. They make coming home more interesting.

I'm hoping to get the rest of my recap done tonight but I'm actually itching to play some TF2 tonight. I'll see how things go. I read through your post and indeed recall the moments where I was around. Heh, when I was heading back with Coop and such, we did come across a gang going against one person threatening to give them his money. We just wanted to walk away ASAP. After seeing that I certainly don't want to wonder around alone in Manchester at night time.

Ahaha. Yea, me and Lee had our little adventure across the city on our own. I don't recall much bad happening. We had some guy leaning out of his car window shouting something at us, but I think he wanted directions somewhere.

All of my jellies.

You'll have to come to a meet some time. I reckon you'd like the Kyoto Lounge.

Damn, a lot happened in that weekend, haha, you certainly remembered more than I did, friday night was my biggest blur, but as said LegolaSS, you were pretty munted on the saturday once you got yourself across the street.

It was nice meeting you, good excuse to have a good ol'northerner drinking sesh. Same time next year I reckon.

I thought my recollection was pretty bad, but once I started typing more and more of it came back to me. You all claim I was pretty pished on Saturday, yet I honestly didn't feel like I was. Oh well, it's a good job I'm a cheery drunk and not a rowdy one!

Aye, t'was good meeting you too Lee. We'll definitely have to do this again in the future. In the mean time, I'll need to remember and get some games of Battlefield played with you.

The randomly offense football fan man was amusing. And awkward.

We could have taken him!

Wish I'd made it to that museum, sounds awesome...

Oh it was. All five minutes of it!

Wish I could have been there. Sounds like a lot of fun. Next year. I swear to God, next year.

Aye, would be cool to meet you. Forget about food. Forget about rent. Just get yourself to that meet!

Also, whenever I imagine you, I always get one part of The Iron Giant stuck in my head.

When Hogarth is introducing The Iron Giant to Dean... Giant thinks that Dean is a threat so he holds him up by his bathrobe collar, Hogarth explains that Dean is a friend. The Giant looks at him, smiles and says "Deeean". Just thought I'd share that.

I'm not too sure if I've seen The Iron Giant. Why is a giant lifting me up?

You have a good memory jotting all that down.

Shame I struggle to remember anything that's actually useful.
