I am shocked and appalled at the lack of London-Hobo pictures in that post Tom.

Jesus.

A lot of people showed up for the meet. I kinda wish I went.

On an unrelated note I still haven't gotten my tablet :( I blame the post office but they don't seem to have forums on which I can rage!

Wow, those UK meets have grown quite a lot. I remember checking out the photos for the second meet back in the summer and thinking that it looked great. Back then there was no more than fifteen people who attended, though this time there was quite a crowd.

I have no idea who to nominate for the Tank Awards, I'll have to think about it some more.

I think we peaked at around 65-70 :D

I barely even talked to some people more than a line or two, and still was always chatting.

HOLD ON ONE MINUTE

You mean he wasn't being his usual random GrandfatherClock self in a thread in VG forums and he does actually write for a magazine?

That would be great, if I hadn't decided to put a Newgrounds sticker on my face. You can see me North-West of Tom...

We could always photoshop your O Face on there. I'd post the picture but it's too disturbing.

It was the best meet yet, best London meet yet atleast. Cheers for coming over Tom & the staff, Poozy, Luis, Andrea, Nogfish, Hans, Aaron, Tim, Luca. Deary me I don't remember who else flew in right now.

Cheers to everybody who got a coach, or a train, or hitch'd it, Kes, James, Mark, BBM, Bez, Liam, Scuzz, Harry, Tom, Dim, Kayn etttcc.

That actually sounds like a decent idea. If I had been to the meet then I definitely would do one, but it might seem quite strange for someone who didn't even attend the meet to be making Flashes about it.

It certainly looks like it. So many people in the picture... if only I could have gone!

Great! Anyway, it's nice to see a new post on the front page after all that time on London.

Ah swell it was, swell it was. Got loads of free drinks from nice chaps, got to meet swell people like Weebl, MrSimon, numerous people called Edd and surprisingly enough TheSwain was a lovely chap too, despite us only talking for about 30 seconds. And the bumper cars... Oh the bumper cars.
I think if you ever get another floor added to the Newgrounds office, you should totally have bumper cars. Just bumper cars and booze all the live long day. It would be like...the best fucking website development office ever (if it isn't already, cos I can't see the guy who owns Facebook having that many beanbags in his office).

Oh, and to those who had missed my newspost earlier this week, here's something I subjected Tom into doing :P http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFILL1dRq Zo

I'm still waiting on Bezman to bring the goods of his arse-montage.
