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 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 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 2_gryphon
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 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
