Yep lol. Tallish, kinda ginger, played guitar. It freaks me out that so many of you (two.. yeah that's a lot) know people from my tiny obsolete school.
He was my first boyfriend. I was a Newsteadian. This is extremely weird.

He was my first boyfriend, too! This just gets stranger and stranger.

Got three of the four exam results back for last semester. It's looking good. No fails and one of the grades was an A. I just hope he didn't give me someone else's grades by mistake.

London is looking promising.

Yeah, this guy knows London inside out. I'm not even sure I know my own home town that well, which is like 100,000 people, where London is what, 6 mil?

Boooo hooooo hooooooooooooo

1. Save up money.
2. Get passport and tickets to destination.
3. Go to destination.
4. Meet with other people.
5.?????????
6. Profit.

It's hard work saving monies up, even if it's a few pounds/dollars/yen a week, but after a few months, maybe a year, you'll have enough monies.

I'm hoping to arrive in London on the Thursday. For the last two meets I've only stuck to Friday and Saturday. I really want to hang around longer than that since I feel two days isn't enough for the meets. I have no idea where I'll be working-wise but I'll do what I can to get those days off. I just hope I don't get a job interview around then. That's why I'm thinking of getting the coach to London so I'm not spending a lot of money on travel expenses as well as the ease of getting a refund if I can't make it.

Assuming I do go, this is my plan as well. Just being there for the three days in Manchester was fun and all, but it flew by. Also, like you I will be coaching it (again). I considered the idea of flying down, but that would just mean having to put up with all the hassle of airports and it's quite a bit more expensive.

£11 for a return ticket on the coach for a 9 hour journey seems like a bargain to me.

If something like this was to go ahead I'd probably be interested in putting my name down, assuming you didn't mind. With Jawdyn saying he probably can't make it, I just lost my room mate, so something like this could come in handy.

If not, hopefully I can arrange to share with someone else this time around, assuming Jawdyn still isn't up for it.

This kinda reminds me of when we went to China Town in London, and had a big brainstorm session about making a game involving the zodiac. Too bad we didn't follow through with the idea, perhaps this time round, we should.

Alright, not a problem. I'll get some potential candidates lined up in the event Luis' flat sharing idea doesn't go ahead or there are people more in need of it than myself.

I'm sure I'll get something worked out.

Does this mean that our paths may not cross until the next Manchester Meet?

Just less than six months to go. This will feel like a long time but when it comes July I'm sure it'll be there before I know it considering my busy schedule that month.

It's alright to leave me for the nights. I have my sister's flat to rest in that won't cost me anything for internet access.

I'm still not sure if I'll be going up to Glasgow or not. I'd like to I guess, but London will probably leave me homeless, so spending a couple nights up in the land of the Weegies might not be possible for me. We'll see.

But London is just too harsh on me scouse wallet this year I'm afraid.

It's probably going to be the same for me, but I'm determined to go. It's not that I can't afford it, but I'll probably have very little left when I return. I've not had a job for over a year now, so I have no real income at the moment.

I was only fooling. I just recall this one time you put on a really creepy smile and it stick with me ever since. I then on decided that you terrify me.

You can buy me a Guinness or something and the label will be revoked!

I'm not sure exactly what you said, but it sounds to me like I'll ruin the beer or something.

No, you're going to buy me a Guinness because then I will no longer be terrified by you. Any person bringing a gift of free beer instantly becomes a friend.

Only five and a bit months to go! I'm thinking I might need to take up a summer job in order to fund this meet now, after my recent spending spree :(

In other news, I might try to drag the new missus up for the saturday if things still going well. Would be nice to not be single at a meet this time round lol.
