Crumbs! Just look at the alcohol-glazed fizzog on that fat bloke in the middle!!

;o}

Anyway, according to my Stella-faded memory, this means the camera came out so late that the photo is missing:

Junks, the d33pf1xes, sourpus, CraneSpire, glasshalfempty, severin, saneshane, and, um ... help me out someone, please.

Back later when I figure out whose CDs I did or didn't get. Anyone missing one of mine, let me know.

Oh and Mnemonic, I still owe you for the wine.

steenbeck said...

Look at everyone! I wish I'd been there. I was wondering if the CDs everyone made for this social had a particular theme?

severin said...

I didn't know there was gonna be a photo!
Still, I hadn't put me make up on so it's probably just as well.

CaroleBristol said...

I hope you all had a lovely time.

nilpferd said...

donds to SB and CB...

saneshane said...

glad I'd left..but very pleased to have met everyone, hiding behind the computer is so much easier.
The cds are just stuff that's not made it onto the A-Z.

The ipod is loaded..this weeks listening is going to be interesting..cheers everybody.

steenbeck said...

Donds to CB, but being a mean-spirited person with party envy I'd have to amend it to "I hope you all had a lovely time, you bastards."

nilpferd said...

Steenbeck- that's exactly how my first draft looked..;-)
The least we can expect is a full and frank report of proceedings...

steenbeck said...

I want to see a transcript accompanied by Saneshane-style renderings of the parties involved.

Blimpy said...

do folks want more of those photos put up?

steenbeck said...

Yes, McFlah, we want them ALL

Anonymous said...

Unless the camera was out whilst I wasn't looking, it's only various attempts at the same photo, I think.

Carefree said...

Blimey, I AM short. Especially when stood next to the tallest person in the room. :)

Blimpy said...

it is variations on the same picture. does anyone have a flickr account?

steenbeck said...

I do, Blimpy, just a free one, nothing fancy, but it's virtually unused, I've only put two pictures on it, and that was just to test it. Do you want to e-mail me the pictures and I'll try to post them and then a link?

TracyK said...

Jealous! My bloke has a Dukla Prague shirt too Rich. I bet they have no idea who HMHB are.

goneforeign said...

Well I'm glad somebody was upright enough to show us a few faces, Ejay's a bigger lad than I'd anticipated, I'd have recognised Mnemonic and DD, and DD, I don't think Dorian's that fat, though he does have a glaze on. Wish I'd been there.

TonNL said...

Nice to be able to put some faces to names, must have been a nice evening, hope the RR Social will become a more or less regular event. would love to meet you people....

@DarceysDad: is there alcohol in Stella??? ;-) You should try a real Belgian beer like La Chouffe....

FP said...

That's a great photo and thanks for posting it. Great T shirts worn by Darce and Ejay. You all look as if you were having a great time.

ejaydee said...

Who forgot a brown woolly hat? It's at the bar for about a week, I couldn't keep it since I'm flying back tomorrow.

severin said...

It was me. I'm disappointed that nobody's waving in the air in the photograph.

severin said...

Sorry, that didn't make sense. I meant waving it(the hat) in the air.

glasshalfempty said...

My trip to the big city for the RR excitements meant that I've been away from a computer, so this is my 1st chance to post.
It was a great evening, with an excellent soundtrack from Dorian, good food from the gastro part of the pub, and everyone was as nice in person as you'd imagine from the blog. And I now have a mountain of interesting looking music to get through, while reading Dorian's/Our book...
Big thanks to Dorian for the wedge behind the bar & the free copy of the book. And thanks to DsD & Mnemonic for sorting the gift to Dorian. And finally, thanks to all of you who were able to bring along a tasty CD.

glasshalfempty said...

@DsD - to help you out, the Positive Thinkings were there too...
