I very much hope so smiley - smiley

As in previous years, I'd rather it was arranged informally - so as not to detract from the main event. I suggest an open invitation to anyone who happens to be around on the Friday evening to convene at the George Inn, Southwark.

Flippin' heck is it tomorrow!

Erm, did we have a time, at all? I have 2 other events that I've been invited to on the same evening (best friend out celebrating end of exams with some young studenty types, and son possibly working at a gig in Camden). If I was young and fit I could attempt all 3.smiley - tongueout

Fringe completed. Five attendees plus one. Multi-national with Icy North, Alex Ashman and Bald Bloke representing the UK, Stunning Frenchie, France (the clue is in the tag smiley - laugh and Bel for Germany. I was the of indeterminate origin and the plus one.

I arrived at 19.30, and met SF outside the George, Bel and Icy having beaten me! smiley - shrug

BB accosted us first, and we soon found Bel and Icy. Unfortunately the outdoor heater wasn't working so, by the time Icy had bought drinks and Alex arrived, we'd decamped indoors.

The conversation went around, covering many topics, including my marathon elephant hunt, where SF's home town was, the merits of the medical profession and it's perks and, possibly a good one for Ask... The possibility of a H2G2 degree or qualification.

Topics included Life, The Universe and Everything, Aviators, Photographers, Scouts, Aces, Gurus, Editors, Artists, Post staff but the list was not completed due to a change in topic.

By 22.00 the attendees were flagging, and tomorrow is a long day so we wended our way home, with SF and I heading in the same direction.

Unfortunately the escalator at London Bridge was on speed so I took the escalator, and we were separated but managed to make it back, independently and safely.

A good night and now ready for the Meet proper. Just smiley - grovel for good smiley - star and may it be as good.

Thank you, all of you, for a very pleasant evening. Hopefully next time there will be more of us! smiley - ok

I bid you a good smiley - zzz
