I'm getting old!
I did a Google on my name today ( to get some data to clear something up with another LJer ) and found a refernece to afp-meet in Nottingham in 1998.

This set me thinking and a further search revealed my first meet to be on 6th Nov 1996 at ppints shop and first post to be August 1996 ( from AOL!!!!! ).

Boggle.

Dunno about fart, but I'm certainly old! :-)

Oh and I found this sig.

Wonder if it's the same person I see around here? :-)
( No name in case it isn't, although the guilty party should remember it! )

Michelena Riosa Testosterone Brigade
(Klatchian Foreign Legeon Branch)
Lance corporal in charge of darning...darning....
oh, you know...things...feet go in 'em.......

Current Mood: nostalgic nostalgic

November '96? A fun meet - did you stay on for a curry?

Oddly enough, I've just ended up working for another (ex-)AFPer present on that evening. It's a small world...

Sort of.

I can't eat curry as it upsets my stomach, but I did have something to eat at the restaurant. Ended up at the wrong end of the table from Terry though. :-(

There weren't so many places along that table (and memory suggests it was a *long* table) that were well placed for conversation with the man himself. My new boss, a.f.p's original Perdita obtained such a placing; Like yourself, I was less fortunate (although it was still a damned good night, the food was excellent and I was introduced to the strangeness that is a Mango Lassi).

Okay...well The Michelena still exists...I just blog now.

Having a blast, hope anybody from the old days reading this is also enjoying all the ins and outs of everyday existance.

and I seem to remember Martyn's very first car...and I is older than he.

(OB in my formula 3, tee hee)

Ciao
