Um... due to factors outside of my control... like my own screaming incompetence, for one thing, and the vagaries of other people for another... this whole thread is like a dog under a wrong tree.



Forget the sixth. No-one's interested in the sixth any more. Barring acts of God, the next weekend down in Kent will be happening on the 13th - 15th of February. Kindly adjust your diaries...

once i get paid my money from school i will be contributing to my own fund. i wish i could have given money while i was there but i am extremely broke (just discovered my phone got shut off and i need to consolidate my credit cards so i can actually afford the minimum payment)

if anyone wants a rundown of the last weekend, i journalled it in my intro thread as well.

i wish i could make it to the next one but it'd be a rare day for that to happen frown perhaps in march when narr and gnor will be there....that'd be very lovely if i could make that one!

hug again to joe for hosting a fabulous weekend!

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

a fiver? Bargin!

Count me in, i'm unemployed and would happily pay a tenner for 2 nights board and paraffin, costs me more than that to stay at home (not that my landlady will knock off money for nights i'm not there). Anyone who can't afford that's just being cheap, but you could do a fiver conssion if someone really can't afford it (ie they've been unemployed for a while, not because they spent too much money on drugz).

Don't know if I can definitely make it yet.
I have plans which I am keeping VERY secret at the moment! ubblol

If my plans work out and I have to be in Newcastle on the 9th I don't think I can really go. If I have to be in Heathrow on the 9th, I could combine it with a weekend in kent.

A fiver?
A bargain!

Doh! rolleyes i am having a craving to purchase blue+black or blue+blue (light blue + dark blue) practice poi.. but alas, oddballs could not feed my need yesterday. we were in camden all day in fact! started drinking at 3pm as it was my 'leaving do' type thing. feel stupid for not mentioning it on here just in case any of you guys would have been around, it would have been ace to see you.

ah well. while i am on the subject, and in case i don't post anywhere else again before i go on my trip - *goodbye* people wave i'll be around but without the power of broadband-in-the-bedroom i can't guarantee i will have the patience to come on HOP as often! i'll see.

Maybe this is the wrong weekend after all - several of the people who were keen for it to be on the 6th now can't make it... what say we push it back another week?

Well done Joe - 5 seems a bargain price and more than fair.

It's a shame I missed the last one as you all seem to have had a riot but rest assured I'll attend the February bash.

Groovy

Oh, it's all too confusing. When I got up this morning my hair was in my eyes, and I grabbed the first available thing that would hold it back - my sister's faded Nike sweat band. The problem is that it's very tight, and as the day has progressed I have found it harder and harder to think. Also everything smells of bleach.

Uhm...Joe....you might want to pry the sweat band off...it could be constricting the flow of blood to your brain. No...really...tho...no..those colored spots *aren't* real. You're seeing things.

Bum bum BUM! My housemate wants to have a party that weekend. Personally I was hoping to spend a wickedly romantic weekend with Kota that weekend - its our 4 year anniversery.

Hmmm - what happened to 3rd time lucky! Boo hoo! Have fun!

Well, the thing is I don't really mind either - I had thought the 6th was better for everyone, but since then most of the people who said they'd prefer the 6th have either dropped out or said that a later date would suit them just as well. For me, the 13th - 15th would probably work better. Seems as though, from the posts here, the date doesn't matter too much to anyone else either...

I have taken the sweat band off, and the sudden rush of blood to my head knocked me flat on my back, my vision filled with colours like you wouldn't believe.... and I'm only on the bleach to help me off the windolene. So there.

Kat, Diz, if we had it on the 13th - 15th could you come?

ubblove
