    Hellooo there! I'm not dead! i haven't been drawing though, i've been having my soul sucked away by full time shitty work.

    I will be attending this saturday, with ALL my hair. Is there somewhere i can crash? i'm a full time student which gives me plus one comfort and the ability to sleep almost anywhere.

    I will be rolling up in my holy rover, which even the floods cannot tame, the nineties was good for one things obviously. I shall get the hair dryer now.

    Pudding Towers is fast filling up with arty types. There's room for one medium sized omnivorous woodland creature, and that's it!

    Bjorn, you don't have to move to the UK to join this group y'know? Just ask!

    Hey josh, if I can make it round yours on saturday morning could I possibly get a lift? I will pay you for petrol of course......unless you are still in bristol...

    and, well, I was gonna ask if I could crash at yours pete, but considering the 3 you have already + your family I may be a bit too much.. So any other kind people out there??? If not I may just head back saturday night if I can find a train.....

    I, and I imagine some of the boys from Blade will be going to Mojo's. They play classic rock, indie, alternative (alternative to what? dunno). Open till 2ish. I can't speak for McCoy, but imagine he'll make an appearance there too. Before we go there, we'll be at Dimitri's taverna.

    Congrats on the job!! I was going to try for the UI/HUD designer job there but have decided to stay at 2Kgames for the time being until I get my portfolio more up to scratch..what are you going to be going there? I know they had a lot of new positions going! It's based near Horsham isn't it, their offices? Should be an okay commute from Brighton anyway!!

    Hey Fellas...

    I'm gonna see what i can do about meeting y'all on Saturday. My wife was due and op yesterday, but it's been put back a week so i don't have to do the Florence Nightingale until next week!

    I can't make Friday, because i've got shedloads of work to do, and we're going to Wales on Saturday, so that me and Jane can go for a meal while 'Nanny Wales' babysits Daisy.

    This is a really really rare occurrence and we wanna go out before Jane's op and a few weeks or so recovering and stuck at home, so it may stop me turning up, but i'm hoping i can persuade Jane to do some shopping in Manchester or summfink on Saturday...?

    It'd be nice to meet y'all so i'll try and sort something out!!

    EDiT: I've just spotted the Dmitri's bit at 12pm. Yum Yum! I LOVE Dmitri's... But what time do you reckon you'll be at the gallery, Pudd?

    Johnny, I suggested the midday rendevous at Dimitri's cos its dead easy to find once you get to Deansgate station. I don't think we'll be getting bladdered there, and crawling to the gallery just as its shutting or anything.

    Prob wait half an hour there for the tardies, sink a half, and head to the gallery en mass.

    If anyone thinks they can't make the 12 o'clock rendevous, here's directions to the gallery.

    http://www.manchestergalleries.org/p...w-to-get-here/

    Pete

    If anyone gets lost, pressganged, etc, you've got mine and Jon's mobile numbers

    Dimitri's at 12 eh! I should be able to make that. Don't know how long for, but it'd be really cool to meet people at long last! I'll stay in touch with the Duddle fellah, as we come from the same armpit of the world...

    I'm sad and .... I saw gallery's website and it looks over packed with information and history... I was stuck with historical costumes for hour alone... You, guys and gals have to, just have to take photos of every participant and scenery...
    hello, hello from the other side of the ocean and hope to see your faces... it will comfort me... Such a wonderful company in such a desirable place of meeting...

    Hi all! it's getting close now, n` looking forward to it .

    Yes the city art gallery is a fine gallery. Theres a big section of Pre-Raphaelite paintings, and plenty more other goodies. Except the recent Kylie Minogue exhibition didn't really float my boat.

    I've just heard about a bar called "Cloud23" on the new hilton hotel (It's the one that looks like a massive stick of ram coming out of Manchester center) Yes he said there are some excellent views from there and free to get in, all though pricey drinks.
    http://www.hilton.co.uk/property/120...5&hid=11536699

    Gotta be a better views that the so called "Manchester Eye"

    Ahh what else is there...

    The town hall is always worth a view, and archetypal gothic castle in centre of Manchester. Dark corridors and ornate spiral staircases galore, and ofcorse the standard vampire baron mayor boss somewhere on the upper levels.

    Theres the Powerhall at the museum of science and industry, that't right POWERhall. Hundreds of old oily steam-engines in a huge shed, ticking and spinning and whirring away.

    There could be a german festival outside the Manchester Town hall, complete with Lederhosen, frankfurters and bavarian music. It's seems to be there for half the year.

    And there all free!!

    Yea theres plenty of options, too much for one day really, but see where the day takes us.
    Look forward to seeing you all.

    My word, the Manchester meet's finally happening? Lordy, that's good to hear!

    Haven't heard from you lot much for a while now. OK, so I haven't exactly been bugging you either I suppose.

    So right now I'm off making some cash cause the moolah ran out about six months in. I'm working for a company you've heard of (starts with a G, probably has a window next to the location bar on your browser) but only plan to do it for a few months so I can get back into it full time afterwards.

    Have to say that with the definite exception of the Brat, I'd love to have had a few more of me old Blighty crew around these parts. On that note, btw, keep a sharp eye out on the thread if you're inclined.

    And if any of you lot ever make it over here, you're sodding obliged to take me out and get me drunk. You wouldn't believe how different life over here is.

    Miss you all *sniff*

    Ahh, that explains the text I got the other day. I thought, who the fuck do I know who Google'd be interested in hiring. Thought it must have been a wrong number. No offence folks.

    Right, lets clear this up now. There's room at mine for whoever wants to crash in Manchester tonight. Just don't count on getting a duvet. Probably best to bring a sleeping bag if you have one.

    Christian: Good to see you here! How's it going? Will probably catch ya on MSN at some point anyhoo. So what, do they not get pissed every day/week over there? ;P

    Edite: Cool~~ There's bound to be another meet before school kicks up.

    Everyone: WARHEAD and I will meet you guys at the Gallery tomorrow. I've got most of your numbers so no worries there - let's just hope the sodding trains will be running properly!!

    Northern folk: Will we need wellies or is it safe and dry there? 'Cause I'm planning on wearing sandals and I have to dash for the train to London in less than an hour ¬_¬
