This weekend was awesome. On Friday night Lupus Ex Machina was joined by [livejournal.com profile] kittiah, [livejournal.com profile] miyabisan and [livejournal.com profile] tryst_fel_cath . Despite the technical problems that we faced it was a show full of win. :D

Saturday was spent at the London Furmeet, which was great as I got to see loads of folks that I hadn't seen for a long time.

Sunday we all went to the RBW venue; it's freaking amazing. :D

More info regarding RBW (theme, venue, pricing, etc) will be released in April.

As promised I shall be going to a LondonFurs Meet this month. It wont be the meet this weekend as I'm working; it'll be the one right at the end of the month. I'll be dragging [livejournal.com profile] jennavixen along too.

Woo. :D

Oh man, where does time go?

Work
Generally things are going OK. Working OOH is good. As expected I'm really not in the mood to do anything whilst I'm working, which is only understandable considering the 12hr shifts. The weeks off (one out of every three) are a $DEITY send; I've really been able to crack on with stuff during them.

For example: [livejournal.com profile] r4nger5 and I have been able to get the pilot episode of R4nger5 TV done and online. We haven't got as much feedback as we had expected but I suppose that's not surprising consider that it is a pilot.

Fursuiting

$DEITY'S-SON, I really want to go fursuiting. The last two times I've been fursuiting this year have been the LF meet at the end of March and when [livejournal.com profile] frost_t_wolf and [livejournal.com profile] shivonhusky came over. Fursuiting nao plz. XD
Ah well, CF is just around the corner. :)

Music

Skindred has been filling my ears with awesome recently. <3

London

I am so missing the LondonFurs furmeets. I really wish I could go, but every single LF meet falls on a day when I am working, and with ConFuzzled and EuroFurence taking up my holiday allowance for the rest of the year I can see it being next year when I get to attend an LF meet.

Does anyone know if there's anything planned to happen with furs in London that falls on the weekend before the tri-weekly meets?

PnP RPGs

I really want to get into running a weekly Pen and Paper RPG once I move into my own place in Leeds, but I'm actually having trouble finding a group to join. I probably just need to find a group of people I can game comfortably with and just invite them over. Or maybe something can be done via Skype... *ponderponder*

Damon

OMG Damon's moving soon! *dance* ^_^

And that's it for this post really.

The London Furmeet was on Saturday just gone. I had originally planned to get up at 5am to finish off a few things before heading to Sheffield and then down to London. Unfortunately I overslept and ended up getting the 10:40 train to London.

It was about 1pm when I got into Kings Cross and by about 1:30pm I was at the meet venue, the Theodoreb Bullfrog. I saw [livejournal.com profile] shep_shepard, looking as sharp as usual, having a pint outside. He informed me that we would have the whole pub to ourselves, which was very much needed considering how many people turned up!

As usual I spent most of my time running around like a headless chicken, trying to spend time with as many people as possible as well as get some fursuiting in.

Later on that evening we headed for the boat and despite some initial concerns about getting our bags on (which had the fursuits in) we managed to get on OK. I have to admit that standing out on the sun deck in fursuit with the wind blowing through my fur was such a wonderful experience.

At about 9pm [livejournal.com profile] 2_gryphon did his stand-up thang, which was hilarious! I must remember to go to more of his shows. After the boat re-docked at the pier [livejournal.com profile] 2_gryphon, [livejournal.com profile] rapidofrog, [livejournal.com profile] gareth_rehal and I headed back to the hotel we were staying at near ExCel. After going out for a take-away, Garr and I went to sleep as we were drunk and tired.

Sunday was a late start too, but an overall relaxing day (except for carting two large bags around London). I managed to have a little time speaking to 2 as well whilst Garr was getting our breakfast/lunch from Burger King. We went to Westminster to see Parliament and the Giant Time Needle and then onto Trafalgar Square where we had a quick drink before heading back to Charing Cross.

More time was spent in a pub where the other furs where. I settled down with a bottle of Reef and started talking to [livejournal.com profile] matraklirahn and two other really nice furs (I don't think I got their names) about Metal for a long time before I decided to head back home.

Overall that was a much needed weekend which I am bloody glad of! I could do with more of those. :)

I'm glad for having spoken to everyone I wanted to, even if it was for a few fleeting moments. Thanks go out to all of you who were there for being awesome. :3

I'm not happy.

There's a head lice outbreak with the LondonFurs again, two weeks before the boat trip.

I was planning to take my werewolf suit there, but I don't want to take it if there's any chance I'm gonna get lice in the fur. Although they'll all die through not being able to feed I would be a huge walking carrier of lice for a couple of days.

The last time this happened was last July.

So yeah, right now I'm undecided as to whether I'll attend the meet. I'll let you guys know closer to the date.

So yeah, I've decided to go to the London meet this weekend. :D

I'll be going straight after work tonight and then back home on Sunday evening.

Take care, folks!

Wow.

The LF meet rocked and the trip to Torture Garden was amazingly awesome! It was great to be at a nightclub in fursuit and lots of people thought we were awesome too, so much that [livejournal.com profile] greyscar pulled no less than three times! The TG staff have even invited us to come whenever we want. :D
Some of the people who didn't come were worried about the level of smoke there, which there was a decent amount, but a liberal application of Febreeze has completely removed the smokey smell from both my fursuits, so no problems there. :)

All in all a great Saturday, but next time methinks we'll skip most of the LF meet in favour of having enough energy to last until 6am, instead of 4am.

On a different note I found out yesterday that British Marlboro Lights are stronger than American Marlboro Lights. x_x

Aaand that's it for now.

Eight hours until the MSI concert. Man, I am fucking excited to hell and back! :D

<3


[Edit] I'll be going to the LF meet tomorrow, so I won't be back until tomorrow night. :)
