Ahh! Two of the same topic!

Oh well...

LAGtheNoggin on other thread wrote:Arrrr! I can't upload pictures until I get my Flickr account paid up and finish some homework - I'm gonna' be slow! >.<

Oh well, excellent time had by all, people were fun, talked well, got all sorts of contacts and got lots of photos (alas I only brought one lens); for eats afterwards Matsu Japanese met and exceeded my expectations (catering around 30+ unbooked webcomic people in total); a trudge to Embankment with copious DDR followed (mr Bob's a natural); rounded off with a long stumble into Imperial College of London's student bar, finding an abandonned room, bringing beer inside, and acting out our newly purchased comics in live action - Darken will never be the same again, thanks to RYClaude.

All in all: Excellent.

If next year is even better - I'll probably wet myself with joy ^.^

It was the best experience anyone can experience even if they live to be three million and two years old. LAG forgot air hockey though, War almost managed to lop my finger off at one point from hitting that puck so hard :p

I'm hoping to get the con report at least half completed by tomorrow.

I concur! And I didn't forget; I challenged Jops! And... didn't win. And sulked... I'll play you next time! I owe you a quid anyway.

Most of our regulars, I'd reckognize anywhere. Except for Laura whose photo I see for the first time and Lag who apparently went through another enormous appearance change.
And, well, if someone else was wearing googles, I'd think it was Jops regardless.
Oh, and Faceless. I don't think I've seen his face before. Um... I'll restrain from pun this time.

I love how Bob has horns on all group pics.

Looks like it was lots of fun, I'm so envious! That blue wig is something else and Bob's hair is interesting.

There's better ways to focus your jealousy: unfocused, indiscriminate rage.
