Report
First to arrive at the tube station was Ali, who arrived rather 
early and decided to have a quick drink at the pub over the road. 
She returned to the station and was shortly greeted by George and 
Barry, who arrived not too long after. Megamole appeared next, and 
passed on the news that the northern line was currently playing 
silly buggers. (that's news?)

After giving the rest of the attendees five minutes time to appear, 
these four decrep^Wintrepid explorers made their way to the Prince 
of Wales, and commandeered an area at the back of the pub.
Drinks were bought, and Barry disappeared for a moment to collect 
some items that had been forgotten, returning to find that a Thomas 
had nicked his seat. 

Welcomes were made, and talk soon turned to the old favourites of 
South Park, the Simpsons, and flakes. John Warden appeared at about 
7 O'clock, (with a bag of chocolate goodies like Chocolate coated 
ginger, creme eggs, and Walnut whips), and more drinks were bought. 

The appearance of Adrian Ogden came as a surprise to everyone (well 
me anyway). A space was made for him, and talk turned to Paranoia 
scenarios, rather good introductions to the game (the warning bot 
and Logic bomb are very good) and some of the more evil and 
vicious^w^w^wentertaining escapades that had been experienced.

The group then began the task of eating the chocolate items with the 
maximum of eroticism. One AFP'ers removal of the filling of a walnut 
whip was rather distracting to another. and the less said about what 
happened to the flake the better. 

A comment about how bad Red Dwarf was quickly became a session of 
making it known to the miscreant that Red Dwarf was actually back to 
being absolutely hilarious (whether it's the best series is not the 
question, just that it's funny again) 

A person who will remain nameless then began impersonating Gizmo, 
and soon the whole group were scaring the barstaff with group mogwai 
impressions.

After a few more drinks, the eating of the Chocolate ginger, walnut 
whips, Maya gold, flakes, and creme eggs, soon we were discussing 
another staple diet of afpmeets, the singing of Tom Lehrer and Monty 
Python. 

Starting with Poisoning Pigeons, there was a singalong of great 
enthusiasm. A few verses of The Masochism Tango were then heard, and 
then a little excerpt of Nicolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky. Adrian and 
Barry even began to sing the elements song, but stopped after 
getting some very strange looks from Megamole (we're not that sad... 
honest) then launched into the Python Classics "Sit on my Face". 
(OK, we are that sad)

The pub's payphone then rang, prompting two of the group to reach 
for their mobiles, which had the exact same ring, and shortly 
afterwards one of the mobiles rang, and prompted one of the barstaff 
to pick up the payphone. 

The bell for last orders rang and last drinks were had, after which 
the group decided to leave the pub. One of the Barstaff commented on 
a discworld t-shirt being worn, whereupon we found that she was a 
bit of a Pterry fan. (always the way isn't it)

After returning to the provided crash space sleeping arrangements 
were decided, a goodbye to Adrian Ogden was made, and a short 
session of IRC happened. 

The group split up at about 00:30ish to retire to beds, and YHN went 
to sleep in order to be ready for the Saturday ahead. 
(he understands that the rest geeked^wtalked until around 3am)
