u24 yes!

aha! you thought I'd forgotten!

actually, I've been running around like a blue arsed fly, but yes! I'd love to meet up, sorry for not getting back to you earlier (I'm crap at this sort of thing, supposed to have phoned by Brother a month ago. (we were supposed to be meeting up in Janurary!))

I've just got to check with my secretary (Linds) to find out when I'm free. (March 13th or 14th) or (March 20th or 21st)

I think 13th or 14th would be better, you'd have just arrived so I can help plan your itinery (how'd ya speel that one, then?)

:)

u24 shit, it really has been a long time since you asked this. oops. forgive meh? 040305
...
jane oh yeah, don't worry about it. you gave me that large list of things to do so i have to forgive you. i'll tentatively plan on the 13th or 14th. by the way i had a dream that i met you last night. strange, eh? 040305
...
u24 most odd!

where are you staying? (did I ask that already?)
040306
...
jane i actually don't know yet. i'll stay at some hostel. know any good ones? 040306
...
u24 there's a place in Euston that's 50 a night, includes all you can eat breakfast. it's called the County Hotel. Nice and central. apart from that, eye dunno. 040307
...
u24 in fact, that's double room prices, I think it's 35 for a single

13th OK for you?
040310
...
jane yes i'll be getting in that morning at around 11 or 12. i'll be staying for the first three nights on great portland street. is that close to where you live? 040310
...
u24 ok, let's meet at Euston (it's big and quite close to you).

3 stops eastbound on any line from Great Portland Street, to Kings Cross

Change to Northern Line Northbound at Kings Cross, then it's one stop to Euston.

Once you get to Euston, get out of the tube station, up lots of escalators, you should find yourself in what looks like a small shopping center. I'll be at the top of the escalators wearing a leather jacket and a jumper of some sort, with long hair in a ponytail. I'll probably be rolling a cigarette.

What time d'ya wanna make it?

(PS: see http://www.bbc.co.uk/london/travel/downloads/tube_map.gif for a tube map (Gt Portland Street is in the middle of the circle line at the top (between Paddington and Euston))

...
u24 OK, 12.30, at the top of euston escalators. It looks like this:

u24 Hi, sorry I didn't get back earlier, it's been really hectic (we're living on the floor at the moment surrounded by bin bags!) Sorry, but I don't think I'll be able to meet up; serious lack of funds, and a pile of things to do before saturday.. how's london? what have you been up to? 040318
...
jane i'm sorry to say i had an awful experience in london. i'm very glad to finally be home. they would not let me leave the country for two extra nights. london is also very expensive. i didn't really have enough money to do anything. i'm very sorry we didn't get a chance to meet up, especially since i was there until today. 040322
...
u24 I'm sorry I didn't make it. it would have been fun, even without money. 040618
...
u24 i really regret never managing to do this. 070420
...
u24 I still really regret this. 080109

Lemon_Soda Don't be sad! I plan to visit london in the next few years. jane can come too, and I"LL bring the money!


YAY for getting a passport!

IGG are there any plans at all for any kind of blather meet up?

how many british skites are there? i thought most skites here were american....
i'm a british skite and i think it would be pretty mint if there was some kind of blather party or something.

LittleLost RidingHood i am a londoner, though you're right, most people on here are American I think. So they are blathing at totally different times. Its pretty cool there is a global love of the site.

I know what you mean it would be cool to meet everyone.

IGG you're in london falling_alone? how do you like it there? i've been there a couple of times and it's nice but very expensive!
it would be mint to meet you but i'm afraid i'm living in manchester in the north, it's a way away for me and i'm a student with little money at the moment! do you have any plans to return?

a blather meet would be amazing but from all the posts i've seen such as the blathercon page it looks like the success rate of a lot of these plans is sadly quite low....

falling_alone it's not so different than home so i settled in pretty easily... but the attitude feels different, more ecentric, and i like it. i will be very upset at leaving... after the semester i have plans to head to paris for a week, split up another week with a friend who is flying over to hit, prague berlin and amsterdam, then i have another week in which i thought of traveling around scotland for my last remaining days.

if your ever in the mood i wouldnt be opposed to traveling to manchester if i had a place to stay for the night...

(although this sounds creepy and desperate)
