Anorak meet-up at Indietracks: Saturday, 12 noon, signal box

Post by humblebee » Thu Jun 09, 2011 21:49

What would people say to an Anorak meet-up at Indietracks? Maybe on the Friday night or something?

Back in the old days of Anorak we'd all slept on each other's floors and been sick in each other's shoes and stuff. These days there are lots of people on Anorak who've never met each other. Some might be coming to Indietracks on their own hoping to make friends, and stuff like that. If we have a little meet-up, even if it's only for an hour, it might be a nice way for more of us to get to know each other. And if we do it on the Friday night, then we'll know each other for the rest of the weekend.

I dunno. Maybe. It's just an idea. If nobody thinks it's got legs I'll slink away in an embarrassed fashion and spend the entire weekend hiding in the signal box.

That's a lovely idea. On Friday, as soon as the last band have finished, outside the signal box? Let's do it.

Sounds good. I'll be the guy who looks like he's just been driving for seven hours.

I don't think I've met most of the people on here, so I'll be the bearded one hovering at the back, looking intimidated.

I was gonna say a lot of us will probably know some of the people standing by said signal box and just gravitate over to say hi, but obviously there'll be new people to meet as well.

I like this plan

We should clearly wear a box on our heads with a picture of our Avatar on the front.

Except it wont really work if you're only arriving on Saturday.

you do realise that all congregating in once place at a certain time will make us highly visible to anyone with a grudge and a high powered rifle with telescopic sights?

but I'd still leap in front of a flying bullet for you

as morris day, sexual pervert once sang

I'll still be there

I'll just watch you meet from a distance. It'll be just like being there, but without anyone asking 'who are you?'
five to six, that's what the time is.

I think this a brilliant idea! There's still quite a few old Anoraks that I've never met and lots of new ones too!

We should have a special sign to identify ourselves - like wearing a cardigan inside out or something.

Capital idea Mr Humblebee!

I shall be there looking like one of the Pixies. See if you can guess which one before the big day arrives.

I'd like to, but as I'm not master of my own destiny that evening what with getting lift back into Nottingham, I'm not entirely sure it will be possible.

It would be nice to say Hello to folks. Or more likely to tip an awkward nod of the head from a safe distance in the general direction of folks I half recognise from The Chameleon.

Yes! I know a bunch of y'all already, but meeting you again wouldn;t be a chore, and meeting new Anoraks is always nice.

I'll apologise now to all and sundry for being horrifically drunk and obnoxious. And sweaty.
I am struck speechless by the nape of your neck.
