I'm finally awake again after getting home in the wee small hours of the morning. I must have had too much to drink because we stopped for kebabs on the journey home.

It was great to see so many people - sorry I didn't get around to speak to everyone. I figured if everyone moves around we all end up moving together, some people need to stay in one space and let the others move around them. I enjoyed catching up with those I knew and meeting a few new people. Hope to see you all again soon.

I thought the evening was a fitting tribute to Gambit.

Glad we made it. It was our first evening out together in London for about 2 1/2 years and it was lovely to meet lots of people face to face. Apologies to those we didn't get to chat to - there's always next time. Hope everyone got home safely.

Indeed a great meet. I've still got the hangover [Waterworks] to prove what a great night it was. It was also good to see at least two friends I hadn't seen for a while.

At the suggestion of a couple of South London Shipmates a thread for a Croydon meet will be posted sometime in the near future [Cool] .

So everyone's being too polite to mention the unfortunate "eyeliner/tart" comment, are they?

Ah well, trust a Hellhost [Snigger] .

As was said before: a fitting tribute to James. It was good meeting so many new people as well, though it was quite worrying how many people said variations of "you don't look scary enough for a Hellhost" to me over the course of the evening. Note to self: work harder on appearance...

I think it was the accent...

It's hard to take a hell host seriously when they speak pure Brummie [Snigger]

Perhaps you should talk to Eyeliner about her eyeliner - very scary [Big Grin]

Photos here - click the Photos text

First 5 up as I write - 8 to follow later today (I'm getting strong hints that somebody else wants to use the phoneline!)

If I have got a name wrong please let me know, and identify the photo in question.

Not all the pictures were usable - my apologies if you are not included.

If anyone has some photos they would like to put on this site, get in touch

Great pictures Tony - Nanny Ogg, you look stunning! Really sorry I couldn't make it - other end of the country and all - but it looked like a great evening.

Yes, great to see so many people.

Thanks Tony for the photos. For some reason I often seem to look odd or asleep in Shipmeet pictures. I don't know why that is.

I got confused too - you need to click on the black word "photos" and then it opens up.

Thank you Jack [Smile] though credit should go to TonyK and his magic camera.

Unlike the wimps I didn't have a sore head the next day [Big Grin] though I didn't surface until 11.30 the next morning.

Then again I am well practised at quaffing the ale.

[Confused]

Sorry - should have made it a bit clearer!

Not the most obvious of places to click - but it's what the free Zoomshare service sets up and I haven't yet worked out how to change it (or even if it is possible to do so).

Hope all is OK now following Daisymay's advice!

I am quite possibly the least photographic person in the universe. [Disappointed] I have never understood why this is, however.

If you think the day-to-day eyeliner is scary, Tony, just be glad that you've never seen me when I'm all ready for a night out! [Devil] , etc.

The tart thing was indeed very funny. No hard feelings Doris darling, I'd have done exactly the same thing if it had been the other way around, as you know full well! [Snigger] And I am, after all, the Ship's Wench (or will be soon, at any rate!)

A picture is worth a thousand words, but it's a lot easier to make up a thousand words than one decent picture. - ken.
