Finally, the desk arrived shortly after the boardband was hooked up, so I set right to work putting it together. IKEA certainly beats the hell out of Wal-Mart and Target as far as the ease of assembly is concerned -- to say nothing of price.
Alright, so Helen brought up the annual Nottingham Beer & Cider Festival, which runs from 19 October to 22 October, and I suggested that this might make for a good meetup opportunity. My suggestion was seconded by Metatone, and Helen and Miguel have expressed an interest in attending. That Saturday would be the 21st, which I'm guessing would be the best date, but, if you'd like to attend, feel free to make suggestions.
Full details of the event, including prices and times, can be found here. The cost on Saturday is £2 for the whole day (10AM-11PM). It doesn't look like it would be a terrible walk from the train station, but if we were to all head to the festival from my flat, it might be wise to hop on the bus, depending on how people feel about forty-five minute walks. If you would be arriving from London, train tickets from St. Pancras are, depending on the time, £6 to £12.
The first thing to do, if we're going to have the meetup, is to establish who would be coming. Thus far, unless anything has changed, the crowd would include Miguel, Metatone, Helen, and I.
