Me too.

Also, the guys from Exterminatus Now can't make it this year a~~nd no news from Al of Poisened Minds - Which probably means he isn't making it. Ghastly said he might be able to make it - any news?

And that's that from me. Yup.

Al of Poisened Minds' replied, it appears cost is an issue but he's definitely interested. So that's a possible from him. Wooo, I might not be the only creepy creepy furry drawing type museum person, huzzah!

And that's it from me, no more people to get tabs on. Wop wop wop. Uhm. I'll be taking photos by the way. If you are unphotogenic, tough biscuit.

1) If it's at 11, then iI'd need to leave the day before.
=> no place to stay.
2) dunno my way in england at all : P
And when I say that, It's an understatement.
3) and if the event is several days, would be a shame to only go one day no? :) (IF) So would either be expensive for a place to sleep or straining on some poor sap :)

Wow, God said it'll rul? Man, I gotta' see me some of that.

I'll be knackered, that's my default state.

Komiyan wrote:When are we looking at staying til?

Noooouuu idea. The event ends at 4 so there's no chance of staying there any longer than that, but I have no idea how good the convention'll be so people could leave earlier. Plus there might be eats afterwards (probably figure it out on the day, I know a few good cheapish restraunts in central) so who knows?

well, i figure we should try and make a day of it at least.

ill be arriving on the friday and departing on the sunday so i wanna make as much of my time as i can

also thinking, we should harvest a couple of phone numbers, in case we get lost or someone doesnt turn up ("where the hell are you?" or "wait for me im stuck in a hole") ...... etc.





i have a scone! with butter and jam!

I'll be messing around in Camden for a few hours, since we arrive at 8am. Our train back is at about 6, so what's say we go for eats after the con?

Awww Ghastly, that sucks. It would have been awesome to have you aboard. Oh well, have a good world trip!

It looks like I'm the hub, everyone's got me! I'm an address book whore ^.^ , I'll pm you my number.

Groovey groovey, werrll my favourite (and near cheapest) restraunt I know is Misato on Wardour street (Japanese, cheap cafe styled place, big portions, good food) however they open at 5 and there's always a queue. Still, if you're in London, it's definitely one of the places to try. But I'm keeping my eyes open for other places so options are always open.

Uh oh. I just noticed a little time problem.

I'm taking part in the 24 minute comic thing, which means that I have to be at the convention center by 12 noon.

We're meeting up at 11am, I know, and from Tottenham Court Road Tube station it takes about 20-30 minutes via Central line to get to Mile End station, and 10 minute walk from Mile End station to Queen Mary's College.

*nervous, really hopes no one shows up late*

Lag: ERm... Misatos is going to be crowded on a Saturday... (Actually, it's crowded on anyday, but it's extra crowded on Saturdays). If there's more than four of us we're going to have hell getting a table.

Oooh. I'm intrigued, but I don't know if you guys would be interested in someone who's "between comics". Anyway, I don't think I'll be able to factor this particular one into my timetable.

But the fact things like this exist - now that's good news indeed. I don't remember there being any back when I was doing Blotto Street.

No worries. Anyone found late shall be promptly disposed of *polishes cricket bat*

Yeah, I was thinking that myself. I don't really know many cheap restaurants that serve large groups (within central anywho) so I'm still looking. Have you got any recommendations?
