My last big vacation was a trip through scotland. Beautiful place.
I am appalled, however, that you're sitting in a wonderful city in a wonderful country with some of the finest beers in the world and you're sitting there ordering Fosters. For shame.
Driving nearly 1,000 miles in 2 days, just to have a few diet pepsi's with 4 people I had never met before, was really daft but I was so glad I did it. It was my first ever trip into Scotland and I will definitely make the journey again - next time, I will stay longer than 8 hours! If Fatty ever extends the invitation again I highly reccomend people to make the trip, you won't be disappointed.
It was a pleasure to meet you Fatty and don't forget to email me your address!
Sounds like you had a great time. I am still regretting I could not make it to Scotland this summer but some day I definitely will meet you, Fatty and Shanyaks. I know it's fun to meet Bob and Richard - Bob, because he is such an art person and Richard is just the greatest guy with whom you chat away hours without noticing.
Despite the fact that only four zoners turned up, the first Queenzone Convention which was held in Edinburgh last night has been hailed as a great success. The evening kicked off at six o'clock in Greyfriars Bobbie's and the first thing I had to do was find my fellow zoners. The first Zoner I recognised was Shanyaks. I spotted him immediately, not because I have known him for the past twenty or so years but because he was wearing a bright orange t-shirt and shorts. I got myself a pint and started scanning the bar for other possible Zoners. I knew Bob the Shrek was supposed to be there so I started looking for someone who resembled his profile pic. The only problem was that Bob's profile contains a pic of himself on the back of a Harley wearing a crash helmet and dark glasses. I started looking for folk in the bar who's nose and mouth looked like Bob. There was one chap who was watching the fitba on the telly who looked a bit like Bob's pic so I approached him and rather sheepishly asked if his name was Bob. It was at this point that the gentleman directed my attention to the t-shirt he was wearing with the words 'BIG BAD BOB' emblazoned on the front. Introductions were made and hands were shaken and now we were on the lookout for Richard Orchard who at least had a clear profile pic. Ten minutes or so later, we were approached by a guy who looked bugger all like his profile pic but did have a pair of cherry red Doc Martins on his feet. We finished our drinks and left Greyfriars Bobbie's in search of a pub where we might experience some traditional Scottish hospitality. I took them to Sandy Bell's Bar which is well known for it's Scottish folk bands. Unfortuneatly they didn't sell Fosters Lager so we left and went over the road to an Ozzie theme bar. Over several pints of the amber nectar we set about putting the world two rights and agreed on the following:
Charles Baer is a boring prick.
Dark Myuutwo is adorable.
Brian May is a bitter and twisted wretch of a man and the sooner Jake Britt comes back to Queenzone, the better.
Sadly I had to go work the following morning and didn't quite make it to the end of the night (I simply have to face up to the fact that I'm not 18 anymore) but I had a fantastic time and look forward to the next time we meet up.
Bob> It was damn fime splendid to meet you in person and I hope you got home safe and well.
Richard> Equally fantastic to meet you and I hope you have a safe and pleasant Journey when you return to Oz next week.
I've been hurt many times. I'm lied to, people use me, they all leave me lonely, they expect me to do all for them, they expect me to get over love so quick, I end
up lonely and depressed.
