Hey, I'm boo. I am a Rankin fan, but unfortunately I can never be 'bothered' to do more than read his books smiley - sadface Hopefully my jealousy of you getting an email from him will prompt me to do something! *is still jealous*

Pleased to meet you boo.

Then I won't be seeing you at Brentcon1.
My advice is join Sproutlore. You get more than just the Mercury, you get a chance to come along to the conventions, get your books dedicated to you, talk toot with Himself, get involved with the general insanity or sit back relax and have a laugh at everyone else's madness. It doesn't matter that you're under 18 [is that right?], there's more than just drinking beer!smiley - ale

Nice to meet you Stealth smiley - smiley

No, unfortunately you wont smiley - sadface But join Sproutlore I will! It does sound rather good, and the chance to meet Rankin himself is a little 'wow' for me! I'd probably just stand there with my mouth open and vigorously shaking his hand and saying inbetween drools "You're soooo cool" and then kicking myself later for not saying something 'normal' lol. And yes, you guessed right, I'm under 18, not quite 16 yet either smiley - sadface

That's another one of the good things about the conventions... there's the chance to sit down and relax with him, he is a top bloke and has time for his fans.
And as I say no need to worry about your age, although we can't get away with under-age drinking *everybody* is made welcome. I know other guys who were 15 at the legendary 'They Came And Shaved Us' and they we made welcome and had a great time.

No need to worry about me drinking either, I'm a tee-total teen!

smiley - yikesTee-total?!! Don't use that sort of language around here!

No the cons aren't annual at the moment. TC&SU was the tenth birthday party for Sproutlore and was held in October, in the club's land of birth Ireland, that was because Octocon and anual convention their wasn't taking place so it was slotted in to replace it. This convention, Brentcon, is taking place in Brentford because 'Knees Up Mother Earth' Robert's new book is part of the Brentford trilogy, and, is set up around the book's launch. The launches take place pretty much annually. Wether or not convention will stick to taking place around the book launches I don't know, but, I think it is something that is being aimed at. The book lauches have always been events in themselves wether or not an actual con takes place, though they tend to become huge gatherings taking over pubs in the evening.

No need to be sorry, I'm flattered... It's when people I haven't spoken to add me out of the blue it bother's me...

How are you tonight?

Alsieboo, Robert Rankin fan member, A2120617

Well it's only me, I wouldn't be too flattered smiley - tongueout You're just a people magnet, if they don't talk to you but find you interesting enough to add you to their friends list anyway! I think I'm on very few buddy lists, one of which I shouldn't be on at all, damn ex..

Anyway, I'm pretty good tonight, right at this moment I'm playing my new LP to death, it's a local (Reading) band called 'Sonic Undermind' (www.sonicundermind.co.uk)who I've managed to befriend somehow, they do a kind of metal/indie sound which comes across amazingly! Yourself?

I am, an interesting person is interesting in talking to me... So I'm flattered. Most of the folk on my freinds list don't get spend much time here or arn't online at all anymore, same is true of my IM buddy lists...
I have an ex, here we get on fine... and two that are not... one being Suz.
Chimpcopter, I like it. Metal is not a genre I tend to neglect, only really taking notic when someone lends me an album telling I will like it, such was how I got in to Jack Of Jill...

Well you'll always find me online! I've practically taken up residence behind the computer, not very healthy though, lol.

I don't tend to get on well with any of my ex's, especially the female ones smiley - sadface Ah well, who needs them.

Jack Of Jill I've heard of, but not actually heard, if you get my meaning. I'll only get into less mainstream bands when I've heard a name mentioned and I get curious, or seen some lyrics by a band a thought they sounded nice. But even thats when I stop being so lazy smiley - tongueout

I'm normally only online at the weekends... When I visit my mum and my internet connection. I can't one at the shared house, no phoneline, still I spend most of waking hours online when I'm hear, unless I'm reading or watching a good film.

I had to break up with Stephanie, I was in love with someone else [Suz], I found out she had mislead me about her age and due to communication problems we had barely spoken for months.

Jack Off Jill have excellent lyrics in my opinion, I'm mostly lyric lead with metal, I like SonicUnderMind's lyrics, I had a quick look at them.

Aww, so most of our chats will be at the weekend? I'm sure I can live with that smiley - sadface

That doesn't sound like it was too good, were you with Stephanie for a while? Tell me to 'eff-off if I'm asking too many questions by the way..

I'll have to go about finding some Jack of Jill, always looking to broaden my horizons that little bit extra!

Yes, except for when I am staying an extra day because it's easier to get to an appointment from my mum's, or if I'm taking a break from the extremely stressful environment that is NERd, stressful because Lorna makes the place so disgusting amongst other reasons.

No it was good, it was just that it was that as it was a online relationship, as you might expect when Staphanie is a Michigan girl, I never thought to ask her her age, she was mature, and the reason we didn't talk is because she of the situation at her home.
It wasn't good for me not talking to her, I'm a talk for hours veryday kinda guy when I'm not with someone physically.

If you have your own PC and room on the hard drive I suggest downloading
Kazaa Lite K++ version 2.4.3, you can get from oldversion.com free, it's how get most of my mp3s

Aah, ok, but two days a weeks isn't too bad, especially as you stay up until the wee small hours of the morning with me!

Age is just a number, as some might say, but I for one never try and trick people into thinking I'm older than I am.
That sounds quite reasonable, you have to make up for it somehow, I know when I'm not with the person I want to be I'm forever texting them, or calling them, and making the most of our time online.

I go through phases of having Kazaa, thats how I get a fair selection of my music too, hehe smiley - winkeye
