That's way i don't believe in the saying: "first impression lasts" , i always give the benefit of the doubt and it turned out well for me and i mean it when i said nice seeing you guys for real.

Now Geneva is not that boring after all.

Hope to see you all again in other events.

Re: burger 'n beer lunch ( GE )

Last year, if I recall correctly, Grumpygrapefruit had a stand of cheese delicacies at the expo. Perhaps it could be a meeting point if y'all wanna meet up again (and newcomers are allowed to join? )
cheers

Re: burger 'n beer lunch ( GE )

Hey, it was fun, everyone. Thanks, grumpy, for the round, although I didn't even get to it, since I was nursing the one drink I got there, hahaha, I needed to get safely on train and home. White wine they have there is nice. Lovely fish and chips, recommended to anyone dying after their home stuff. It's a neat venue, too, sitting outside was pleasant. Though, grynchie, having me walking around like a douche looking for you guys, grrrrrr....I got your flag, by the way, we will recycle it next time. It awesome to meet everyone, Geneva - represent! Everyone was as I imagined, well, apart from monkeynut, fo sho.

Ye ye, you should take your fabulous color contacts out, at least when you are drinking!

Thumbs up for grynch, good organizing.

OOOh. Makes me homesick.
This one is cute, though.



I was wondering why they don't have real authentic UK staff at Pickwick...
