A Thursday night?

Funko
12-09-2007, 11:41:31
He's only here one Saturday... and that's the party day.

Nav
12-09-2007, 12:30:33
Venom is getting around!

I should be good for both events. :beer:

Resource Consumer
12-09-2007, 12:35:42
I think I can make the Thursday one. I am in VIenna the first half of the week but I think I am back on Wednesday night.

Funko
12-09-2007, 12:43:16
AHA! We forced you to reveal your movements to Dyl...

where is Dyl anyway?

MOBIUS
12-09-2007, 12:43:44
Hmmm, Mushroom foraging in the Forest of Dean Saturday day, party at Funko's in the evening and Giants Vs Miami @ Wembley on the Sunday - looking like a good weekend!:beer:

Funko
12-09-2007, 12:45:24
Oh you are going to that? Cool. :beer:

Funko
12-09-2007, 12:46:01
BTW do you mean :clueless: mushrooms?

Mr. Bas
12-09-2007, 12:53:45
That's what I was wondering as well. :D

Funko
12-09-2007, 12:55:44
It'll be that time of year.

mr_B
12-09-2007, 12:58:05
I'll be there

Depends on how skilled at foraging he is ;).

BTW, I'm surprised somebody's doing it in Great Britain, apart from the immigrants ;). I thought it is strictly a regional thing.

Please disregard the above paragraph if MOBIUS actually meant the kind of mushrooms Funko inquired about....

As for the meet - again, this year I'm still to poor to afford going to the Isles ;). Maybe next year.

Funko
12-09-2007, 13:03:53
Ok you've made it sound like mushroom foraging is like some kind of Polish outdoor sex thing. What did you mean?

LoD
12-09-2007, 13:08:48
:lol:. Was it the "doing it" part of my previous post that implied intercourse?

A meant this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mushroom_hunting), particularly in this context (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mushroom_picking_in_Slavic_culture).

MoSe

google.com: "mushroom foraging" 165,000
google.it: "raccolta funghi" 648,000

:rolleyes:

your wiki link:

It is popular in most of Europe,

from

the Nordic, Baltic and Slavic countries

to

the Mediterranean Basin

Funko
12-09-2007, 13:21:31
It was mainly the 'Depends on how skilled at foraging he is ;).' bit.

LoD
12-09-2007, 13:25:32
MoSe: do I sense a hurt national pride :D?

Funko: oh. I was simply suggesting the possibility of faulty identification on his part :).

Funko
12-09-2007, 13:32:18
So he finds out the polish forrager he's groping is a man dressed up?

LoD
12-09-2007, 13:33:55
As a mushroom?

Funko
12-09-2007, 13:34:49
mushroom

badger badger badger badger

MoSe
12-09-2007, 13:39:17
actually, I think to recall we had a school joke (8th or 10th grade) about "mushroom foraging" girls, going around to pick from the ground amidst the tall grass pale fleshy things with a turgid stem and a big head...

IIRC it also had some tralala in it, like

"here a little mushroom, tralalalala
there a litte mushroom tralalalala..."

Funko
12-09-2007, 13:44:41
Why the big head?

mr_B
12-09-2007, 15:03:52
:lol:

you mean that purple German helmet?

was that an Oerdin?

MoSe
12-09-2007, 15:33:47
when you see *purple* german helmets, you must have eaten some mushroom

MoSe

Yes, the dangers of mushroom foraging - which one is edible, and which one will kill you stone(d?) dead...?

LoD
12-09-2007, 21:22:36
That's what I said! But noooo, Funko had to warp it into some kind of abstract innuendo...

Resource Consumer

OK. I should be there on the 1st. I get back from Vienna the night before.

Tizzy
18-10-2007, 11:33:59
I'll be there!

Funko
18-10-2007, 11:34:08
I think we'll probably spend most of the day in London on the 1st. Not sure what we'll end up doing. Drinking probably.

Tizzy
18-10-2007, 11:36:03
Ah yes, that reminds me....

Aredhran

I won't be there, so make sure there are plenty of (preferably compromising) pictures posted on the net...

18-10-2007, 17:11:37
Ah, the angel of death will be there, soon you will die horrible and...of, er, have a nice time with Venom.

And you decide to come to Vienna NOW?

Tizzy
24-10-2007, 10:24:51
On Saturday:

What/when/where
Party at our house, 8pm, fun drinking, chat and dancing. There will be nerds attending but there's no requirement for non-nerds to make any effort to look nerdlike.

Are there invites?

Only on the internet!

What do we need to bring?

Yourselves, some booze, some music maybe? Your partners/new drummers/italian djing buddies or anyone else are also welcome

Oh and there's Free WiFi! Woo!

MOBIUS
24-10-2007, 10:43:29
Free Woo?

*End Is Forever*
24-10-2007, 11:10:52
It's not a proper party until someone creates a facebook event.

Tizzy
24-10-2007, 11:23:16
It's not a proper party, it's a nerd party

C.G.B. Spender
24-10-2007, 11:33:33
Oh, I'm not invited?

Funko
24-10-2007, 11:39:33
We don't want the other nerds to feel insecure in their nerdity.

C.G.B. Spender
24-10-2007, 11:40:12
Oh, amateur nerd party

Venom
24-10-2007, 12:04:02
Out of the 3 activities listed for the party I can only do one.

King_Ghidra
24-10-2007, 12:06:12
After my latest holiday request for two days off next week (so that i can have a couple of gay boys day out with venom and funko) my boss called me aside and told me he was worried i was looking for another job and begged me not to leave :lol:

Funko
24-10-2007, 12:08:07
If you get a pay rise out of it do we get commission?

Venom
24-10-2007, 12:19:17
He's paying for the gay days out.

What's on the agenda for the gay boys days outses?

MOBIUS
24-10-2007, 12:37:32
A friend of mine worked for a company called Gamma Projects and I said he should ask the boss for a gamma raise...:D

I'm busy that day.

I'll quite possibly, maybe, could be, there....

If you feed Venom then you have to keep him.

King_Ghidra
25-10-2007, 10:44:09
and if you feed him after midnight....

Greg W
25-10-2007, 10:46:30
You might get lucky?*


*assuming you have a big bag of flour handy

Tizzy
25-10-2007, 13:30:27
Right, I'm hiding the flour.

I'm not quite sure what Greg means but it sounds like something I should worry about.

Venom
25-10-2007, 13:36:27
I think he's referencing a fat joke that makes absolutely no sense in this context. But making sense is not one of his fortes.

Funko
25-10-2007, 13:55:51
Can you explain? I am totally lost

Venom
25-10-2007, 14:47:58
I first heard the joke in the movie The Last Boyscout.

Alley Thug: All right, you want it in the chest, or the head?
Joe Hallenbeck: Yeah, that's what your wife said.
Alley Thug: Hey, would you stop with the wife shit?
Joe Hallenbeck: Ask me how fat she is.
Alley Thug: Fuck you, man! How fat is she?
Joe Hallenbeck: She's so fat I had to roll her in flour and look for the wet spot. Motherfucker, if you wanna fuck her you gotta slap her thigh and ride the wave in. Now I'm not saying she's fat, her high school picture was an aerial photograph.

Funko
25-10-2007, 14:50:22
Wow.

Venom
25-10-2007, 14:52:43
Which isn't the best part of the conversation. The best part is before that.

Alley Thug: Wrong place, wrong time. Nothing personal.
Joe Hallenbeck: That's what you think. Last night I fucked your wife.
Alley Thug: Oh you did, hah? How'd you know it was my wife?
Joe Hallenbeck: She said her husband was a big pimp lookin' motherfucker with a hat.
Alley Thug: Oh, you're real cool for somebody who's about to take a bullet.
Joe Hallenbeck: After fucking your wife I'll take two.

Lurker the Second
25-10-2007, 14:54:54

BTW, I'm gonna be a little late for this gathering.

MOBIUS
25-10-2007, 14:55:10
Something about aiming for the wet spot...

100-0, PHd, OEd, etc...:p

MOBIUS
25-10-2007, 14:56:33
Bugger, a bit late with that and totally crap compared to Venom's definitions

MOBIUS
26-10-2007, 15:09:08
Has someone mentioned yet what a great idea it was having this housewarming on the 27th what with the extra hour of drinking/sleep from the clocks going back an hour…:beer:

Or was this just a lucky coincidence…?

Tizzy
26-10-2007, 15:14:17
It was very carefully planned, obviously.......

Funko
26-10-2007, 15:34:10
Not so much as we're supposed to be playing football at 12pm... lucky the clocks do go back!

Greg W
26-10-2007, 15:36:23
Lucky the clocks don't go back just as you start, or that'd be a damned long first half.

MOBIUS
26-10-2007, 15:39:09
Hey Greg, what taaim is it in Ozland?

Greg W
26-10-2007, 15:40:10
It's 1.40am right now. Which really means I should be getting off to bed. Why?

MoSe
26-10-2007, 15:41:17
he's having fantasies on you, he wanted to check the context

MOBIUS
26-10-2007, 15:44:37
I thought we were different by 11 hours (or is that Kiwiland?), in which case it would’ve been the middle of the night for you – which is why I was wondering…

Leaving work…

NOW!

Greg W
26-10-2007, 15:46:15
We're GMT +10. Kiwis are +12. Which of course all changes with daylight savings.

Drekkus

So who made pics?

Tizzy
29-10-2007, 11:53:24
I think Funko took some. Maybe. If anyone posts any good ones elsewhere I'll link them.

You mean you actually ahd a party at your house? It didn't take me long at all to figure out that you never have parties at your house, always have them at someone elses house. Preferibly in walking distance to your house.

JM
(doesn't expect to ever live in walking distance of Tizzy's house)

King_Ghidra

We discovered that the bath water is untreated and not even safe to touch, let alone drink.

Sadly we only discovered that after Funko had insisted on touching it.

I am back in the country today and in work. I can get there about 5 but could even be a bit earlier if I get bored in work.

I assume we meet upstairs?

They're actually quite useful.

People invite you to stuff, you say yes and then it reminds you without you having to lift a finger...

That's the spirit! :beer:

Venom counts as three twats, so that helps the number a bit.
