Mael has arrived! (in Off-topic)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 29 2008 6:51 AM EST


Even though I was slightly late (flight landed 30 minutes early!) Mael has now touched down and is enjoying the clement English weather!

Next, to arrange a drinking time! ;)

QBJohnnywas January 29 2008 6:55 AM EST

Let me know!

Flamey January 29 2008 7:04 AM EST

seriously sounds like so much, CBer's getting together. Is G coming down with you guys?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 29 2008 7:09 AM EST

I don't think G can make it this time. :/

Mael's going up to Durham Friday to Sunday, looks like Thursday or Monday are the best bet.

Maelstrom January 29 2008 7:16 AM EST

I'm here! This is cool - there are lots of baby toys to play with here at GL's house :D

IndependenZ January 29 2008 8:32 AM EST

An American game, and the people come together in... England ;)

Have fun!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 29 2008 10:38 AM EST

I wanna be next!

Lochnivar January 29 2008 11:16 AM EST

/me misses Durham....
The old part of the city city is one of my favourite places. Have fun!

Maelstrom January 31 2008 6:44 AM EST

The weather's not so clement today. The wind nearly strangled me with my own scarf! Raindrops smash into your forehead like rocks, but don't bother with an umbrella, since it'll turn inside out in a second.

But still cool to be here, and the weather over the last two days was beautiful. Spent almost all the time outside walking.

OK, enough of you people, I'm off fight through the rain and people to find more museums.

Oh yeah, hitting up a pub with GL and Johnny tonight, if they can decide where to go!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 31 2008 7:01 AM EST

Weather is quite bad today.

The wind pushed my car out of my parking space and 1.2 way across the schools car park.

I've left it in gear now. ;)

BluBBen January 31 2008 7:08 AM EST

It sounds like so much fun! If I ever come to England make ready a bed for me! =D

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 31 2008 8:12 AM EST

I thought that was eatin's cheatin'?


I'll try not to fall asleep on the train home tonight! :D

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 31 2008 7:16 PM EST

Brilliant Night!

I didn't fall asleep on the train home this time, but I was schooled in 80's children shows by a random bird in the pub. :/ /sob

QBJohnnywas January 31 2008 7:18 PM EST

Yup grand night. But to be corrected by a woman about 80s fantasy childrens TV, GL....sigh....


AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 31 2008 7:20 PM EST

I know mate!

But you hadn't corrected the mistake either. ;)

QBJohnnywas January 31 2008 7:21 PM EST

Too old to completely remember the programme. Pubs, clubs and women were more important by that point.....

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 31 2008 7:28 PM EST


Oldie. ;)

Stephen January 31 2008 8:06 PM EST

Can an admin check Mael and GLs' IP. I think they might be a multi ;)

Thraklight Resonance January 31 2008 8:08 PM EST

That random bird was planted. GL, you have now been activated. The cookie is crumbling.

What the???

Why have I woken up here? And why am I naked?


InebriatedArsonist February 1 2008 3:11 AM EST

Why have I woken up here? And why am I naked?

-Hey, it's Ted Kennedy!

QBJohnnywas February 1 2008 3:12 AM EST

And that's GL next to him.

Maelstrom February 2 2008 7:40 PM EST

Yup, we had a great time out with Johnny and GL. We didn't go too heavy on the booze, since we all had things to do the next day, but we had some very interesting conversations. GL, really, I think you should do a poll for that important question you were asking. See what actors people can think up! :S

Oh course, the strangest part was on the topic of children's TV shows, when GL, Johnny, and my girlfriend, who is from Vietnam, all starting discussing a Japanese kids cartoon based off a Chinese fairy tale. Monkey, anyone? Is it just me, or did we not get that in Canada/North America?

OK, bedtime. More plans for the morning.

QBJohnnywas February 2 2008 9:35 PM EST


AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] February 3 2008 7:09 PM EST

Hah! I'd just have to figure out how to word it without skirting any PG issues! ;)

Maelstrom February 3 2008 7:42 PM EST

Johnny, that video is amazing! Such great music! ;)
Your band should do a cover of that!

Maelstrom February 6 2008 12:41 PM EST

Well, I've made it back home after a long, long, long painful trip. I caught the flu the day before leaving, so I wasn't feeling well. Then on the flight overseas, there was a little kid with tourettes (or something like it) sitting across the isle from us. Honestly, for the whole 8 hour flight, the kid did not shut up or sit still. He kept blabbing nonsense words, hopping in his seat, running up and down the isles. If you've ever played "Rayman Raving Rabbids", he sounded exactly like a rabbid. So in short, I didn't get much sleep.

The second short flight was fine. Actually, I fell asleep as soon as I sat down, and woke up when we arrived. I couldn't believe we were there so soon. Then the fun part: a 3.5 hour drive home on about 2 hours sleep. After an hour we stopped in parking lot and slept for about 4 hours, then made it back home no problem. Then slept. And ate. And now to sleep again.

QBJohnnywas February 6 2008 12:43 PM EST

Sorry to hear the UK made you ill Mael!!! Get well soon.

Good to see ya ;)

Hyrule Castle February 6 2008 1:51 PM EST

lol GL how did you find out...did some creepy guy say "You've got Mael"

AdminG Beee February 6 2008 2:53 PM EST

Mael said: "We didn't go too heavy on the booze..."

Serves you right then. You wouldn't have caught the flu if you'd filled yourself up with the local "preventative medicine".

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] February 6 2008 4:32 PM EST

LoL Hyrule!

I got a glowing finger in the sky poitning at me! ;)
