  1. Secret Santa X...Gift are arriving from all over the World!

    Good morning all and Merry Christmas! A huge thank you to my Secret Santa - I just opened my pressies and I got Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (as many of us have this year), a Sigur Ros CD and Frasier season four on DVD. All good stuff which I will greatly enjoy! Now the only clue I had to the identity of my SS (from the gift tags) was that they were also fans of all the above which could literally be anyone on here. But I know that name on the Amazon paperwork - thank you TC, you're a star!   I also have to say I have been greatly enjoying Lany try to match up Santas with giftees and getting everything wrong, wrong, wrong. It's the first year you've been able to play this game since you are not running it this time and I think you're having a lot of fun with it, but you are quite wrong about who my giftee was, hehe! Wishing you all a great day, Merry Christmas!
  2. BWB London Meet up - Thurs 3 Dec

    The boiler man has finally arrived and should not take too long to get this check done. I should be leaving in the next half hour and should be there by about 6.30 pm. See you soon!
  3. BWB London Meet up - Thurs 3 Dec

    There is a degree of chance that I may be a bit late this afternoon. I'd forgotten I had booked my annual boiler safety check today and just had the reminder pop up on my phone. They could come anytime between midday and 6 pm so hopefully it won't be too late when they get here. It is annoying because I had also planned to go into town and do some Christmas shopping this afternoon before I get the train to London. Will keep you updated and hopefully won't be too late but I am definitely still coming. See you later!
  4. Secret Santa X...Gift are arriving from all over the World!

    A package has arrived from my Secret Santa - thank you! I will be waiting till December 25th to open it because I like to have something awesome to open first thing on Christmas morning before I go over to see my family, so you'll have to wait till then to find out what it is. I have not sent off my own Secret Santa parcel yet, but I'm working on it and it will hopefully by away by the end of the week...
  5. BWB London Meet up - Thurs 3 Dec

    I guess I can get there as early as that too and it will probably finish at the point you (as in TitanCat since she asked the question) need to leave to catch your train home.
  6. BWB London Meet up - Thurs 3 Dec

    Seems like a good central location. Any objections or alternative suggestions? If not then I think we are set for this.
  7. BWB London Meet up - Thurs 3 Dec

    Yes we really need to pick a venue for this, any suggestions?
  8. I was chatting with Targh last week and we decided it was long past time we had another London meet up and I figure that rather than trying to find a date that everyone can make we'll just pick one and see who can make it. I think we are going to go ahead and meet up even if it's just me and Targh there for it, I still have a bottle of vodka that I brought back from TitanCon for him in September. But we hope some of you fine folks will be able to join us for some drinks. We haven't picked a venue yet but it will be a pub in central London someplace. Feel free to suggest a pub if you like. Please reply to this thread if you can join us on Thursday 3 December.   Attending: MG Targh

  10. I can confirm that Pod has bought a membership, so as long as he remembers it's on I'm guessing yes...
  11. GollanczFest 2015 - 17th October in London

    Just bought a ticket for room 2. Kinda wished I had got on this early and got a ticket for each room as well, nevermind. Should be a good time anyway!
  12. Proposed London meet up August 20th?

    I guess we are going to have to put this back another week then. Apologies Jaemi, it's not normally this difficult to get a bunch of us together.   So should we go for Thursday 27 August or perhaps go for a date in the first week of September? Thoughts please...
  13. Proposed London meet up August 20th?

    OK - so it's too late to arrange anything now for tomorrow.   My next suggestion is Thursday 20 August, 5.00 pm till late. Venue TBC.   Jaemi - can you go to the first post of this thread please, click on edit and then go to "full edit". That way you can edit the thread title and add the proposed meet up date to the title and it might attract a bit more notice and urgency that way. I'll send a message round to everyone that might be interested and hopefully we can get something in place for next week.   MoIaF - hopefully we can get another meet up arranged for early September when you're in London.
  14. Proposed London meet up August 20th?

    Apologies for not replying sooner, been away in Wales and was busy with Nine Worlds Geekfest this weekend.   I can't do this upcoming weekend, but there's no reason everyone else can if there is enough interest. My suggestion still stands for this coming Thursday 13 August - can anyone else make Thursday evening? If not how about next week if it's too short notice now? I can do pretty much any evening except Wed or Fri. I could even do the weekend on 22 or 23 August if that works for others. Please reply and let's see if we can get something arranged soon.   Will probably also attend the Gollancz Festival in October and we should probably start a separate thread for that one methinks.
  15. Proposed London meet up August 20th?

    I say HELL YEAH, you should totally come to TitanCon!   (Not that I have an ulterior motive or vested interest in the continued success of TitanCon or anything)   Okay, okay, I'm the organiser. But even so, I'm not being biased when I say it's a great convention and you'll have an amazing time and meet lots of cool, like minded fans. Definitely worth attending if you can.     With that said it is long past time we had another meet up in London and we were talking about this just a few weeks ago at Archipelacon and said we should have one soon, so let's make this thread a call for a meet up to happen some time in August. Unfortunately I'm away in Wales next week and then it's Nine Worlds convention on 7-9 August at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel at Heathrow Airport, but some time after that we should definitely arrange to meet up in central London.   How about Thursday 13 August? Does that work for anyone? Feel free to suggest another day if that works better for you and we'll go with whichever day the majority can make.
