    YER WIFE! (No, seriously, there was talk that Non-Nerd Company would be welcome. And Mrs Greasmonkey is among the finest humans I know.)
  2.  (11053.4)
    I'll bring my better half if she feels up to it - she doesn't socialise a lot.
  3.  (11053.5)
    I'm pretty sure I can make either Fri or Sat.
    Will confirm in a day or 2.

    Fine with me. You have my email if you want to send me the details.

    (Disappointed you can't make it, Allana, haven't drunk with you in ages!)

    I'll try to make it, though I won't be drinking (tomorrow I start taking a medication that I can't have alcohol with) and it's the last full week at my office, so I may be there cleaning up, but I WILL TRY DAMN IT.

    @Peter - EXCELLENT, SIR! Bring your wife. All your drinking needs shall be met. There will be food and fine conversation.
    @oldhat - I hope you're okay, I hope you attend. Bring your camera if you do!

    My Ladyfriend (our fine host) is excited and has been preparing! Smoking will largely be outdoors, the kitchen has been readied, supplies have been seen to, last-minute on-the-day plans have been crafted. (She is a Planner. She is more organized than anyone I've ever met.) There will be food and drink aplenty and hopefully comic books.

    It looks like I'll be able to attend. I may be late and a little sweaty from moving the office, but it looks like I can attend.

    WARNING: I will be sober, chainsmoking, and grumbling a lot.

    THE NICE KIND OF WARNING: I'll bring a bottle of something nice for the Ladyfriend host.

    SO IT'S GREEN ACROSS THE BOARD for tonight.

    I'm fairly certain everyone's aware of where and when, provisions have been acquired (with more on the way - fresh bread, pastries, various sundries, maybe more booze do wehave enough booze? I think we have enough booze get more booze anyway) and away we go, 'round about half-seven. It's 21C so someone will have some sort of photographic device and perhaps pictures will be posted by those far more technical than I. Oh and it's set to be a lovely spring day, the first in a dog's age and I think the moon is still full as a spotlight. So we're good. Can't wait to see y'all, y'all.


    @allana - wish you were here, darlin'. Next time, next time.

    WELL, THAT WAS FUN! Good times, had by all! Whitechapel Prevails! Clean-up was a snap this morning, fed a blue jay left-over pistachos, there was certainly enough food and booze, absolutely zero fist-fights (that I recall, anyway) .... EVERYONE SEEMED TO HAVE A GOOD TIME. Which is how we roll, yo. CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!!!

    Zero fist fights, but boy did I get raked over the coals at one point
    (for jokingly suggesting my life would be easier if my wife was stupid...for the record, she was in attendance and she is brilliant)

    Memo to everyone: the woman who puts up with Hex is not to be trifled with. She will verbally kick the crap outta you. TRUST ME.

    And yes, a fun time was had. :)
