Well, I'm back. It was an amazing weekend, though of course I missed you oodles... except for those who were there with me, cos now I'm missing them!
A quick checklist of the main points -
Six trains, 3 each way, no missed connections. Wheee!
Alcohol was consumed in abundance.
Ditto chocolate, cake and ice cream. Also 'real' food. ::boggles::
I watched many episodes of Angel I've never seen before, including NFA. And, once I'd seen Spike 'alive' in Angel, I could finally watch Chosen all the way through without getting too weepy.
We did a few drabble challenges - on paper, so we weren't too strict about the 100 word limit. They'll probably be posted sometime soon.
I haiku'd repeatedly.
I got a birthday present (thank you eatenbyweasels!) - The Encyclopedia of Unusual Sexual Practices - more than 750 entries and 150 original illustrations. Conclusion after flicking though and reading out a few of the more squicky entries? There are some very twisted individuals out there. It almost makes me feel norm... nah. ;o)
We each bought a gift, something suitably tacky or porny and in some cases both, and put them into The Big Bag o' Tack and then had a lucky dip. I got a mushroom moneybox that has to be seen to be believed. (Photo available shortly.)
I also got magnets (thank you madders!) - one says 'They Don't Pay Me Enough To Smile' the other says 'I Hate Everything' and it's one of those wonderful cartoon snarky bunnies. (Photos available shortly.)
I took fresh fudge, shared it and was worshipped as a goddess. ;o)
I wrote a fic, on the trains coming back, which fulfils my Horbling bunny assignment and it will be posted just as soon as I've got the energy to type it up.
I made 8 new friends. And before you all start wondering which one of the nine I didn't get on with, stop it! I've been playing in vampirefever's LJ for ages now so she's an old and treasured friend. :P
I missed my LJ and my friends and especially my literati (I think they might have got a bit sick of hearing your name, sweetie. LOL!) but I think having internet access would have killed the togetherness and constant conversation.
Oh yeah, and there were bad!porn movies, and lots of them. Skeery!
Thanks go to gingerpig for organising it and acting as head wrangler and chauffeur. *horbles you* :P
