    AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: NERD DAY II!

    After the roaring pleasure and success that was the first Nerd Day – a term coined by the esteemed Red Leader’s mother-in-law on learning of the gathering of Transformers fans in his store back in November – and because of the fact that I have to go back to Norwich again in January, I propose another gathering. “Nerd Day II: The Crappy Subtitle” will take place late in January for all who wish to attend.

    The only thing that is set in stone is that I am at an open day at the university on Wednesday 26th January. I therefore propose that ND2 take place on either the Tuesday or Thursday – the 25th and 27th respectively. (Of course, this is for the entirely selfish reason that I don’t want to miss out on all the fun and shenanigans that will undoubtedly ensue.) It will be day of fun, pizza, speaking as men do, illicit happenings with Micromasters, and anything else we can think of. In short, we will make nuisances of ourselves and enjoy the company of like-minded fellows!

    Therefore, as you can see, it’s all in flux. The final date will be the one that is best for everyone that wants to come. If people want to bring things to swap/trade/sell, I'm sure none of us will have any problems with that! Seeing as I haven’t had the opportunity to get on here all that much just lately, those wanting further details or just to say “Hell yeah, I’m up for that!” should either add me on Facebook (David Underwood; email address of dxu783@bham.ac.uk), drop me a text (07934215270), or give me an email to same address as that used for Facebook.

    I hope that you have all had a fun and fulfilling Christmas and that the New Year will treat you all well. I also hope to see some, many, or few of you in about a month.

    Have fun!

    Shockscream/David

    I will do everything I can to make it this time! Got some carried over holiday to take in January so this could be the perfect excuse.

    This may be quite do-able for me - I'll have left-over birthday money, and I get paid on the 27th. :D

    One does hope to see as many of the AA gang there as is humanly possible. You were missed at ND1 back in November. However, ramming us all into Andy's shop could be somewhat amusing.

    Nothing too terrible, I trust?

    Good man!

    The prevailing opinion seems to be that 27th January is the most desireable day for our little gathering. I trust this is agreeable to all who plan on being there? The get-together will more than worth your while, I assure you.

    I'd love to see some of you guys from AA again, but alas, Norwich is rather far for me. It's nice that you're organising these meet-ups tho', Mr. Underwood.

    An Update on Nerd Day II

    I can confirm that Nerd Day II: The Crappy Subtitle will be held in Norwich on January 27th. As with the first gathering, we shall meet in Red Leader's store at around 10am.

    Andy has agreed to close his store for the day and act as a host. He has plans to set up a TV and games console for our use and enjoyment during the day.

    If that portion of the day has any resemblance to ND1, the day will spent bumming around in the shop mucking about with stuff we buy and taking a look at what Andy has in stock. Comments about the smallness of Hot Toys Black Widow's mouth and other semi-depraved and borderline illicit will abound. There is much fun to be had sitting and discussing the pleasures of our mutual hobby as well as anything else that pops up. In terms of food, there's a corner shop next door, a Lidl down the road, a chip shop nearby, and a pizza delivery service.

    In the evening, a wee drinky of some description will most likely be in order. We shall have to make use of the local knowledge of some of the attendees. We ended up in a pub and played some pool last time and was an enormously pleasant evening.

    Those that wish to come are more than welcome. In fact, the more the merrier. It may be interesting to see how many of us can fit in the Kapow store considering its status as a former constituency office.

    I look forward to seeing you all there!

    That's something of a shame. Have to see if we can organise something a little more central to/for everyone.

    Not sure if I'll make 10am, as it depends on whether we drive down the night before (since Norwich is nigh-on 4hrs away!) but will hopefully be there at some point ;)

    I imagine that we'll be there all day, so no worries if you can't make dot on 10am.
