|10:54 pm - Jekyll and Hyde meme|
If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please flip a coin.
If your coin came up as a head, post a comment with a memory of you and me. It can be anything you want, either good or bad. I promise not to come after you with a spork either way.
If your coin came up as a tail, or if it came up as a head and you just thought it would be funnier this way, post a comment with a completely fake memory of me. Make something up; it can be anything you want, either good or bad. I promise not to come after you with a spork either way, unless you want me to.
You're not really meant to tell people whether it was a head or a tail, not even me. If you can confuse people as to how your coin landed, so much the better. Remix and enjoy.
Unrelatedly, all warmest wishes to jumbach for his wedding and to bookshop for her birthday, both of which happen on Saturday 5th. Wonderful days to you both!
Current Mood: mischievous
Current Music: remix of the old Commodore 64 Ocean Loader tune

That trip to Abingdon
I still smile every time I think of that time we went out for a curry at the place in Abingdon. I can't believe that you had four mango lassi during the course of the meal. Worse, even after all this time, I can't believe that I had five. By the end of the evening, I think the owner must have wondered (i) what the hell we were playing at and (ii) whether he had enough mango pulp for the rest of the weekend.
Re: That trip to Abingdon
Thank LJ non-users Phil and Sarah (who at least chrisvenus
knows) for the recommendation. They've been to enough of them to know the one to recommend.
Some day we will get at least Phil and his jokes onto LJ.

Remember during quiddich at Witching Hour when I threatened to "do a Potter" and swallow the snitch?
hilight for answer:
Yeah, I wasn't at TWH, but I loved your post about it and would have loved quidditch in the mud. I regret being a broke fandom hermit.
Over the course of the day I think we managed to have almost all the storylines that have been used so far turn out in real life.
I'm currently getting a kick out of the concept of powered parachute Quidditch
. I think it would be possible, but the cost would be in the six figures of dollars. Extremely dangerous, too.
The time we convinced Robert Kilroy-Silk that it was a good idea to create his own political party.
What a forfeit for losing a bet, eh?
I shall never doubt your knowledge of '30s spoons music again.

The time you, Fuchsia and I were in the park in Middlesbrough, and those kids were calling each other 'you little necrophiliac!'
I still giggle when I remember!

I remember that time we knew we were in the same city and we were trying to meet up, so we were emailing each other. It turned out we were emailing each other from just a few seats away in the same internet cafe!
I'm really glad that I tried one more time just to see if you had found a way to get online - and what a way you had picked... :-D
It was Nimbus and I remember us being as busy as ants, not to mention being among the stragglers at the end of it...
Hope I see you again someday soon. *hugs*
I still have the bracelet you extremely kindly gave me!
I flipped my Luxembourg 2€ coin, but you'll know the answer.
There was that time our paths crossed in Derby, at the Assembly Rooms. Back in October 2001.
Willie Thorne has a career for life doing trick shots; even after you've seen them on TV, they're still quite something else in person.
I will never forget the game of Mornington Crescent that we played with mr_babbage
on the Prepared Map, where connections of less than 500m count as one station.
Memo to self: in this variant, Lambeth North is always a losing move*.
* - Except when it isn't.
Shurely 500*yards*? Metric units are only used in Boswell's Rules (revised 3rd edition).
Remember the time at Nimbus when we put all the named HP characters in a hat, to draw slashfic pairings, and you drew Draco-Crookshanks? Still a more acceptable paring than mine; I shudder to think of the horrible things that Tonks and Nearly Headless Nick could get up to...
Still, I wonder how Dracy-poo explained the clawmarks...
The pairing names game, too!
My favourite: Snape/Quirrell = Squirrell.
I do remember playing a particularly tense game of Who Wants A Million T-Shirts with you in the lobby of the Stamford Marriott hotel, while our genial hosts looked on in amused bemusement. You were quite the gambler, as I remember it!
Sometimes I had to give the correct answer as E when all of A to D were incorrect...
Thank you, thank you! Do blow something up for me today! :D
landed on a wodge of blutak.
Speaking of Hadrian's Wall...
Remember that time we got kicked out of that museum for "inappropiate behavior on the grounds of a National Trust site"?
Want to try to go 2 for 2?

Three words: Scooby Dooby Dooooooo!!!
Rhat's rah rhemory rhi rhave rhinvolving rhou. Heeheeheehee....
I was thinking about the Fan Society the night before last. Specifically, it has dawned on me, after only about four or five years or so, that those ports on the back of a PC which look like they take Atari 9-pin joysticks just might actually take Atari 9-pin joysticks, and the presence of said joysticks might just make MAME a whole lot more fun. So I looked for my Atari VCS 2600, with attendant games and joysticks. Can I find it? Can I buggery. I know I eventually brought both console and games back home, and the joysticks should be with the games, but as to where they both went... :-/
The suppressed giggles that were my initial reaction to the title of this LJ.
Never suppress your giggles. They have nowhere else to go and come out as farts.
Sorry, it was a long day at work.
When you gave me away in my fourth wedding (you remember, the one that was in Reno), that was one of the most beautiful moments of my life.
