It was a day that started off, for me, with meeting up with Tabon, Maivale and AshKerins. I'm a huge admirer of AshKerins's art and it was great to meet her; I'd never spoken to the other two before but they were truly lovely!
Together, we travelled to Knightsbridge, where someone insisted we get off the tube and walk! (I blame Maivale! ) So our journey there took a little longer and was a little more exhausting than we were expecting!
When we arrived, there was loads of people there; I was amazed! Our little group sat down, munched on our lunch and waited for things to get kicked off - Tabon was making a chain mail pencil case, which was fascinating!
Then spyed directed us all to gather around while he
Next we split off into our specialty groups, I went with dxd and the photographers. dxd entertained us all by
DarbySniper introduced me to DaynaEMCraig, who is truly one of the funniest people I've ever met and really great. And then everyone left (It was about 8pm by now!) made their way back to South Kensington tube station and took over the Circle line! But not before DarbySniper was made to pick up rubbish.
All I can say about the Metropolitan Bar is that they make good cocktails. That and they were incredibly accommodating and didn't bat an eye lid as about 30 deviants took over one corner of the room, simply wandered around to check everyone's ID (While miikeyC hid in the loos, of course!)
The tube journey back was (what I remember of it!) entertaining to say the least. I went in completely the wrong direction home to make sure that DarbySniper did indeed fuck off and get his train home, but insisted we get off the tube at Kings Cross for a loo break!
And then collapsed into bed and got up hideously early this morning!
Anyway, it was a really great day and has inspired me to go to future devMEETS, for sure. I met loads of great people and just wish that I'd managed to get everyone's name!
Sorry to everyone I confused with having Pixel-Spotlight written on my chest!
