More Dragonmeet

Yep, I'm the new Dragonmeet Chairperson as earlier predicted. The world shall now bow before me and all that :)

It was actually a pretty productive meeting. One of the best I've been to and if we keep the form we showed tonight up the con should really kick some gamer ass this year.

It was also good to James Wallis again as I've not seen him since last year, and that was only fleetingly at the last Dragonmeet Convention. Have to arrange proper drinks/meal and general catch-up with him Dave and Sasha sometime soon.

Also bumped into Rob as I was going up the Holborn escalators and he was going down. He ended up back at the top and came to the pub for food and drinks. Luckily another friend of his ended up turning up before the DM meeting got under way so he had someone to chat to without getting bored stiff listening to the rest of us talk 'shop'. Good to see him again in a surprise-random encounter sort of way. Also finally got hold of his email address and gave him mine plus my LJ details.

So hello Rob if you're reading this!!!

I'm back at work tomorrow after my couple of days off. My new phone looks like it's all charged up now too. Hmm, shall I test it out and text someone? Who will still be up at this hour and won't get pissed at me for texting them.....:p

Night night folks, til next time!

Friendster

I've just joined Friendster. Don't know why but I remember ukmonty  telling me about it a few weeks ago and saw it was nominated for a Webby 2004 Award which reminded me about it.

I've found a few people on there already (and boy is one of my ex's still hot! :) but if you have an account feel free to add me!

Should really go to bed now (and dream...)

Reasons to be cheerful... one... two... three

Reason One

Was told by one of the cutest girls in Finchley today that I had 'great hair' and that she'd seen me around quite a bit but had never spoken to me before. Christ, I could have told her she'd never spoken to me before - I'd have remembered that!!!! Anyway, downside to this (there always is one) is that she's 18 and I've known her mother for years. Still, good to be complimented ocasionally.

Reason Two

The new phone seems to be working fine. Still have to read the instruction book to get a hand of all of the various gadgets. But having a phone again is nice.

Reason Three

It's my birthday this weekend!!! Yay for me!!!! Still don't know what I'm doing on Saturday but Friday night should be good fun. I'm actually really looking forward to catching up with several friends I haven't seen properly since before I moved in February, meeting some new faces from finchleynotgoth , seeing various other friends from the club circuit and generally having a good time. Of course all my enthusiasm will probably mean something will go wrong or I'll end up having a generally so-so time of it.

Reason Four

OK, I know the song is only three reasons but screw that! Reason Four is because looking back at the girlfriends I've had (inspired by discovering Mel on Friendster last night) I've been damn lucky overall. I've been blessed with some of the prettiest, intelligent, interesting and generally wonderful partners anyone could hope for. It also brought home the point why I'm single at the moment. Too much of a good thing when I was younger has made me very choosey (possibly too choosey some would say). I know how good a relationship can be and I'm happy to wait until I find someone I feel that we'll work well together. Unfortunately people such as Dawn, Mel, Angela and Delphine are hard acts to follow. Doesn't stop me from having fun though :-p
