The Internet

Ordinarily, there’s probably no way that I would have ever met Lyle, Sarah, Jane or Adrian (I know topper – and hence Lori – as we did the same degree course). But through the magic that is the interwebnet, this motley crew descended upon Manchester’s Fab Cafe with the intention of meeting people they’d (mostly) never met and drinking lots of beer.

Lori, Topper and I arrived first, shortly followed by Lyle and Sarah. Any worries that Adrian and Jane might not recognise us were quickly relieved when Lyle unveiled his very, very red and delightfully offensive anti-Christmas t-shirt. And so the evening began. Much alcohol was consumed, many jokes were told and stories shared (including, to my eternal shame, the one about me going to see david essex) and a good time was had by all. Like most of the attendees, my memory of actual details is a little hazy, but I do remember that it was all very relaxed and lighthearted, and thankfully totally free of those awkward gaps in conversation when you realise that no-one has anything interesting left to say. So, inevitably, we’re going to do it again at some point. Hooray for the internet!

    Is that DAVID ESSEX?

    I know, details are rather elusive for me too! Great fun though.

    I was thinking a lot about the blogmeet too. About how I’d never have met these people if it wasn’t for blogging and how amazingly well we all got on. I had a wonderfully happy feeling for the rest of the following day too 🙂

  3. It was a great evening. My head attested to that the next morning.

    I think you have a bug though that is making the font on DAVID ESSEX like really small. You might want to fix that. 😉
