I have only ever met forumites on purpose, but while I was out in camden with Jodie and Dan I ran into another internet friend called Megan, which was rad because she's American, and we were planning on meeting up but never organised anything solid, but then both turned up in cyberdog at the same time! Magic.

Seldom. At least a couple of us live in Yorkshire! I live in Leeds.

Cracking, we should all meet up sometime and reminisce about our upbringings.

Generally I'd meet random internet friends at these things called conventions. I'm guessing few of you are the sort of weirdo to attend such things? I'll be going to Anthrocon, Otakon, and Balticon this year because I have too much dorkiness to cram into one.

Oh sweet mother of god I'm going to die and go to curry heaven.

When and where?

It's not actually a curry convention! It's a sci-fi/fantasy convention in Baltimore, Maryland. Balti(more)con(vention).

Not half as delicious, I'm sure.

I've never actually met anyone here but I'm pretty sure there's a Patrick duplicate around here.

Also I dreamed about meeting Khar once? it was pretty bizarre because he was Khar in the dream but looked nothing like him

also he wouldn't tell me his name

I grew up in Cheshire. Can't for the life of me figure out why someone would choose to live there.

Hey now, it's not by choice. Just that while this current government fucks us all over I have nowhere else to go.  :-(

    • Troubador! bandcamp page

Christophe goes to school and is friends with a guy I had classes in high school with. I only know this because I noticed that our mutual schoolmate and I both posted in the same comment thread for something on Chris's Facebook. Completely tripped me the fuck out.

Also it turns out I already knew a few forumites in person without even realizing it, although they hardly count since 1. they hardly, if ever, post(ed) here and 2. I have known most of them since before QC even existed.

Yeah we had a Leeds meetup years ago, back when I was finding my meeting-forumites feet, and there were four of us there with a few others who could have come but were too lame. Yorkshire is quite a good place for hunting forumites!

There's this really handy "other thing" I'm going to write as a footnote to my abstract that I can probably explore these issues in. I think I'll call it my "dissertation."

I don't post on these forums much, but anyone on here live in Okinawa? Lol.  The chances are like 1 in a Bajazillion.

The only forumite I have seen in real life is Chad K., and it was not by happenstance.  His band was playing at a street fair, and we went to see him.. I liked that band by the way.

I haven't been to Runcorn in years. Quite a bit of my family lives there. Or used to live there. I think they keep dying.

Right after that Sydney meet up a couple of years back I was working at a desk at my uni, getting people to sign up to one of the clubs I was involved with when someone came up to me and asked if I posted here. I think he was a lurker from above the divide who had only been down here to check the Auscon photo thread. Never saw him again either at uni or here

There's a stencil of zombie Lunchy somewhere in Glasgow. I've seen it a couple times, but I can't for the life of me remember where it is. Each time I've passed it it's been really late and I've been pretty drunk, but I recall greeting it with 'Evening, Lunchy' and my friends going 'why are you talking to a stencil'. Who made that, by the way?

I don't think it's correct, but I'd put my money on Ryan.

Kris - I don't know who made it but I know they are in a few places in Glasgow.



I imagine it is this guy.
