I can't remember which of those countries that happen to be East of us you come from bah! :P

And I'm tall dammit! The IRCers are a lot less threatening in real life, except for Ebola, who can't punch nearly so well in IRC as in real life.

Here's hoping I can afford to get to the chronometer/subversion one :p

When I left the party and said goodbye to Chris it went like this:

Chris: "See you at the Subversion release party then."
Me: "Subversion or Chronometer?"
Chris: "Good point actually."

Someone else of whom I don't know who he actually is made another time machine joke. :P

Actually I was amused by Ebola. When we were fighting over the good chairs in the developer's office (the second-hand things on which Leander and Byron spend their coding time I believe) he said something like "I'm bigger than you, I can just pull you out" when I was sitting in one. Just to compare I stood up and found he was only an inch or two taller. :P He later measured this at the party with his flat hand, and he kinda hit me in the back of the head while doing that. Nowhere near 'punching' though. :P

I also think I almost hit NeoThermic in the face in the tube on the way to Old Street during a sudden hit of the breaks, but it was so loud I couldn't exactly hear his response when I asked. :P

Yeah, you guys are making me jealous :P here's hoping I can go to chronometer/subversion.

On a side note, based on jelco's height comment, I went to a job interview on thursday and the "might be" boss was german. Now, I'm was well aware that Germany's average height is higher than the Portuguese one, but seriously, the guy was freaking huge! I'm about 1,79 m (that's above average by our standards) and the guy simply towered over me.

Oh, and I seriously hope I get the job, I missed MLP because of it :P

I should be able to upload my photos in about 12 hours... Featuring never-before-seen footage of squirrels.

The pic on which I appear with Domo and my Fluffy is plain awful. (So that's what your face looks like when you're laughing really hard and a picture gets taken. :P)

*wonders why IRCers seem to instantly recognise his Domo photo* *ahem*

'twas a fun weekend, good to catch up with those I'd met before, and to meet new people. (And to pay far too much for steak.) Glad I was able to stay for the Saturday too (thanks to Sara), even if going to see the 8:30 showing of Avenue Q meant I got home at 1:40 - it was worth it.

Erm... I can't think of anything else to say, so I shall relurk back to IRC now.

I am going to spread the bill for my new replacement eyes among everyone who used a flash at the party >=(

Also, I had no voice or hearing the next day.

I think NeoThermic and Montyphy are the only ones you need to ask, their show-off equipment had flashes more powerful than the projectors. :P

Also, weakling! I rarely go out and still didn't lose my voice or hearing! ;)
