As told by TomFulp
My friend Ian spent a week in London on business. His last weekend there was "vacation time", so Tim, Pete and I flew out to party. The added bonus was that I got to visit Jim aka liljim
, NG's sole PHP / MYSQL guru at the time. I had just gotten back from my trip to Slamdance, so I felt like quite the jet-setter.

The whole weekend was out of control. The first time I visited London, I mainly did a lot of sight-seeing. This time, we drank our asses off with a bunch of English blokes. I think this was much closer to the true England experience.

If we hired Pete, this could be an NG staff photo!
Jim came out with his sister, Laura. He later apologized for being blitzed upon arrival, but I hadn't even noticed. Looking back at these pictures, I realized he was!

Ian and his cousin, who lives in London.
I don't know what's going on here...
Ian playing snooker... What a ridiculous game.
Tim and I ate street vendor hot dogs. Yum!
I feel kinda bad about the first time I went to London because I was so "un-cultured"... I wanted McDonalds every night and was even tempted by TGI Fridays. I have always been a fan of Pizza Express, though. We made a return visit on this trip. We also made time for some theatre, attending "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)".
Other than that we just drank a lot...
I tend not to take "scenic" pics because they come out boring.
I always get a kick out of French Connection UK, though.
As usual, the public transit in London is 100x better than Philadelphia. This new train line we took was especially sci-fi. We were only in town from Friday through Monday, but it was a total blast. BTW, if you are wondering who Ian is, you can shoot him in one of my old games, House Hunting
