A very vaguely Super Con related comic here. Every time I went to get tea I was served by the delightful Angie who always had a smile and a chat for me. Made dealing with the nerds all weekend that little bit more bearable. Became a bit of a running joke between me and Matt and she ended up being referred to as Future Wife for most of the convention. I even drew a picture of her to say thank you.
Slightly more Super Con related now, had a great time there. Fantastic effort for a first time convention. Made a bit more money than I was expecting to do so always a bonus. Was a nice way to kick off this year’s conventions. I only took one photo all weekend
Unfortunate comic epilogue: she never called
So rude! Poor little Petey, all primed and ready to accept the honour of pressing the button, and some suited bimbo jumps in and snatches all the glory! Regardless, the doors functioned as one would expect and our journey continued without incident.
This happened on the DLR on my way to set up for London Super Comic Con. Next week, another comic very vaugely related to the convention!
When one of my current housemates said her friend in Australia she’d met while travelling was coming over, I had no idea it would be one of my OLD housemate’s best friends! Absolutely mental, tiny little world we live in. Suffice to say, I texted my old housemate to tell her and ruined the fact that this visit home from Australia was supposed to be a surprise. Awkward!
Went to see Bonobo Dj at the Village Underground in Shoreditch a few weeks back and had a thoroughly good time! It was indeed a night a beers, dancing, snow and snuss. No grumpy security guard is gonna ruin that!
I can’t believe it’s taken this long for Jo and Tommy to appear in a comic! How has this happened? Nay mind, there you are now!
Only in London eh?
Well actually, no. This happens all over the world. The No Pants Subway Ride is apparently quite popular these days and me and Luke just so happened to turn up at their meeting point on the day in question.
I did already know about this event happening this one day but I honest to goodness had no idea the meeting point was our chosen pub.
Skip to the end, me and Luke remained fully clothed and our antagonists here found their crew of fellow weirdos
Oh John Hughs! What would the 80s have been like without you! A sadder place, that is what!
But yeah, totally didn’t realise Uncle Buck was John Hughs until I saw the credits. Good times!Chilled out movie nights are the best.
Also, people need to learn to put DVDs back in their correct boxes. It’s a gripe of mine. What I didn’t illustrate here was the fifteen minutes of randomly picking DVD cases and hoping Weird Science would be inside
Merry Christmas y’all!
Yes I know it’s February but these things run a little bit behind real time. I seem to remember a certain Marc Ellerby Christmas happening sometime in April perhaps?
Anyways, yes, inexplicable comedy Christmas presents are the best, these ones courtesy of me and my sister’s Godson, Dawson, who has just turned 1! Happy Birthday Baby D!
Oh yeah, they’re not ACTUAL guinea pigs, just so you know
You’d think someone who works in theatre would recognise Stevie No-Pants when she sees him huh? PFFFT!!!
I stand by my initial statement, it is Stevie No-Pants. Who is this Laurence Olivier chap anyways?
I will remember this the next time I decide to be a massive pikey!
OF COURSE they weren’t going to have tobacco in them! They were left on a bus seat! I’m sure even the most careless of smokers would notice they’ve dropped two packs of baccy.
Oh well, you live and learn…
Ahhhh nights out in Shoreditch. You don’t half meet some interesting types. Got chatting to this guy (Armenian if I recall) after offering to take a group photo of him with his friends. We got onto the subject of his new job and he basically said that if we called him up a couple days before we planned on going to his eatery, he’d cook us something special!
Almost certainly drunk talk but HOW NICE IS THAT?!
I never took him up on his offer but thanks anyways.
Please note me and Matt sporting our mighty Movember moustches. Aww yiss!!
