I honestly figured we could locate eachother by trial and error. Just keep your eyes open for the unattractive man with short brown hair standing next to the young blonde girl?

When I met Jamie I looked around for a girl who looked vaguely like her and then stood ten feet away and text messaged her to see if her phone went off.

Each person from the forums that I have met looked exactly like their pictures. No problems had recognising any of them.

I will be wearing hot pink, either a jumper or a t shirt with a bright blue skirt. You would have to be colourblind to miss me.

I might also wear my black fedora (similar to the one the parrot is wearing) for even easier identification.

This should be simple, no?

In the Leeds city bus station? You'd be surprised. I'm never able to say what I'll be wearing on a certain day because I have to spend hours each morning deciding. I don't want to wear the 'wrong' clothes. Yeah, I'm one of 'those' people.

It's fairly unavoidable that I'll be wearing hot pink, since I don't have many clothes. The ones I've packed are either pink or black, so pink it is.

Anyway I'll message you my mobile number and then we can find each other using Luchy's technique.

I will be wearing whatever is clean on Saturday. I might wear my black University of Manchester Mens Hockey Team hoodie since for social convenience it has my name on it. This is unless by some bizarre act of nature it is really wamr in which case I will probably jsut wear a t-shirt.

I'm very impressed that you'd be able to track someone down using their mobile number. Please teach me how to do this (for non-violent purposes).

Do you not have services (online or via SMS/phone) where you can find someone's name and adress based on their phone number or cell phone number? I'm genuinely curious, because to me, this is a given, but once when I was called up by someone in the UK, and wanted to find out who it was, some Brit I talked to said that he didn't think such a thing existed.

Of course we have mobile tracking services in the UK - but the consent of the tracked mobile owner is required before you can do it.  The services are aimed at parents and companies.  Getting their name and address is another matter.

That's not what I meant - I meant like a "phone book" (online or via sms/phone) where you can also do "reversed" searches, pretty much. Someone you don't know calls you, you want to know who it is, you look up the number? He claimed it wasn't possible - that you'd have to know the name to find any info.. Which seems weird to me, but maybe not? I don't know.

Here, if you buy a cell phone, the number will be searchable (at www.telefonkatalogen.no) unless you ask specifically for it not to be. I guess I just assumed that would be standard practice most places.

So.. I'm not talking tracking as in finding out where they are atm, but tracking someone down as in finding out who they are/where they live.

We trekked from one side of the city to the other, just because I wanted to drop change on top of a lemon.

Is it just me, or do I look rather too much like a deranged psychopath in that photo?

We really have to go back to that pub and defeat that lemon sometime.

We ate, some of us attempted to use chop sticks.

We visited a pub

Since Luke managed to take the single most unflattering picture of me, ever, I had to post a better one of how I appeared the very next day.

The barmaid you photographed is a friend of mine. I always stay at the hotel around the corner and every time I do, I go for a drink and a chat at that bar. They have excellent bar games and you can balance some coins on a lemon.

That place has actually become a semi-official QC hang-out of sorts. Last week myself, Katie and Darryl spent a night playin' dominos. I took some pretty shitty pictures with my phone as evidence -






I do not know why Katie was rollin' gangster. I think it made her better at Dominos or something.

No. Good memory.

The barmaid from the Slint shirt story was from Estonia. She looked like Corin Tucker.

Duly noted.

My memory for tommy's sordid past is like tommy's memory of pretty ladies. Like, remember that time MaiAda was talking about her breasts and tommy reposted the picture of her in a bikini where her and her boyfriend are both checking out her chest?
Yeah.

I used to think that about me, but people from the internet keep dropping by for repeated visits. I'd love to hang out with you in London, but I would also love to own a drum kit. We'll see which happens first and how much money is left over.
