Horbling IV was a resounding success! There was much fine food, good company, new fic, and copious amounts of booze. Together we managed to traumatise one waiter, terrify one chef, repeatedly abuse one caped monkey and several anatomically correct knitted men, and communicate in multiple fandoms with only minor disorientation and repeated 'Who did what? I don't know him, what does he look like? Ooh, nice! Carry on!'s.
I am going to try and tackle my monster flist, but feel free to link me to the good stuff in comments so I don't miss it all. :D
