Yeah, reading's 175 and glastonbury's 155 this year.

Oh and to clarify for armoured griffon, I was running off of a return flight from gatwick to glasgow for a weekend on easyjet (at inhospitable times of the day, mind)

£50 per night, including breakfast ain't bad, if anyone's interested, take a look on the GMTV website, they've got money saving links for Premier Inn and Travelodge.

Then again, if you are staying at Waterloo, you will have to put up with me as a neighbour for a while :P

You KNOW i'm gonna say yes :P i'll pay for mine on payday this Friday, might ring you just to get details and whatnot, is your number still the same? Or have you finally updated? lol

Oh by the way, i am driving down this time so if you, Leo (BBM) or anyone else i'm familiar with (or is over the age of 16, ain't driving no jailbait around!) wants a lift down, inbox me or tell me on here and i'll be willing to drive you down and back provided you have petrol money

No, the number is still the same. I've gone through a few phones since then, but I keep the number constant, unless people start fucking about with my mind via there :P

I'm just going to be keeping it relatively central this time, so that I can spend a little more time drinking. Pitchers of Pimms are the way to go - they're so much cheaper than individual glasses :D

I've never been to one of these things and it would be pretty cool to see what the newgrounds users are like in person, but I'm probably going to be overseas for holiday during this time.

I've booked the full weekend off already so I've got no excuses not to go. You know unless I need some teeth pulling out closer to the time.

Still thinking of going on the friday. Namco has lost it's charm badly and I'd rather be part of a samller group looking to get pissed and sing badly.

Not really it's just you obviously won't be able to go drinking with the older folks, even though i will only be a week off 18 DAMN YOU BIRTH-DATE! Also remember no one is responsible for you, so if you get lost, broken or stabbed your parents can't blame luis or anybody else.

Just an addendum to that - you're perfectly welcome to attend if you are responsible for yourself, or you're in the care of a parent or guardian if you're under 18 (or have their consent, with them knowing that no-one is going to look after you and you knowing that you're responsible for your own accomodation (should it be required) and/or travel (AND travel expenses)).

There were a few guys there last year who were well under the age of 18, and their parents came along and just hung around in the background. They got along just fine, the parents didn't interfere, and I *think* those guys had a good time. I won't mention their usernames, they can speak for themselves. There were a couple who showed up who had come on their own and just made their way back at the end of the day, when people started moving to bars in the evening.

A bad example of someone turning up (and I won't mention any names, since I can't remember the names) is someone who went to a meet and didn't have a return travel ticket. Luis ended up paying it out of his own pocket after talking to the kid's dad over the phone, who was mad as hell and held him responsible for his kid's situation (which is absolutely ridiculous).

Luis might feel bad telling that story, but I don't, on so many levels:

1. If you're under 18, your parents/guardians should know what you're doing and where you're going. There's absolutely no reason to lie, unless you feel that they wouldn't like you looking at content on NG, in which case, you shouldn't be here in the first place and that's their failing as a parent/guardian (from preventing you looking at stuff that they think you shouldn't be looking at)

2. You're THEIR responsibility, not ours

3. Who turns up somewhere knowing that they can't get back home, or don't have anywhere to stay? That's stupidity on a number of levels

Having said all of that, if you do want to show up and are under 18, then all the main events during the day are in very public places (Namco is right next door to the London Eye and if the weather's good and we go to Hyde Park again, then that's very public, too).

Just make sure that you clear it with your folks/guardians first, and let them know your itinerary. Once you arrive, call them, once you leave, call them, etc.

Note to Dangan: don't forget your ID this time.

You've got 6k posts here, you're just as nerdy as the rest of us.

In all fairness you'd be surprised at how rad and hip we are all. We're pretty with it and all that shit, and more importantly, after a few beers we're all the same anyway.

haha fair point, although 6k posts to me just means that I've been bored on the internet for a few minutes over the past couple of years :P

But meh I'm just going with nerdy stereotypes, I'm sure you guys are totally young and fruity. The clincher for me was that I'd been wanting to go to one of these meets for a while, and I'm actually going to be near the center of london anyway at that time because I'm meeting my sister at uni so yehhh I will keep tabs on this :)

It's just that some nerds have more to say than others :P

I mean, Leo's got 7 times more posts than Fim, but I'd still say they were level on the nerd scale.

I think that's a fair appraisal. After all, how many serious nerds do you know that would start a game of football in the park, just like that?

Most nerds would be worried about injuries or skin complaints, so the game would be over before they actually stepped into the sunlight :P

Beer. Helping ugly people have sex since 1172.

Must mean I'm not ugly - Bex hardly drinks at all... except when she's on the mead.

Funny how people paid more attention to the fact I wouldn't be able to make it than to the post I would be able to.

Anyways, I'm still a bit up and down on the lung front, get occassional mega chest pains, but it's still looking set.

Don't forget this:

This meet made me choose between you guys or a weekend of sex with a gorgeous gothic girl in manchester. I chose you guys because I thought it'd be more fun so don't you forget!

And yes I know the girl, she moved years ago but I reguarly train up to see her
