ARVN Ranger

Salute and lots of Birthdays (and Nazis)

Thursday: after fencing at the pub - pleasant surprise when one of the new fencers asked if I'd been wearing a Men The Couldn't They Couldn't Hang t-shirt earlier. I had. Turned out he'd been at the 100 Club for the St Patrick's Day gig too so he, Kate and I had a good chat about TMTCH and upcoming performances.

Friday: tinkerbell1980's Birthday bash. Wow. Never realised there were quite so many Angus steakhouses in the vicinity of Leicester Square! Pigged out on steak but what sort of steakhouse doesn't do cocktails?! Still, fun fannish meal followed by a drink afterwards - discovered the Hogs Head is now the Crooked Surgeon.

Anyway, afterwards, over to Tottenham Court Road to meet up with Simon and then on to colonel_maxim's Birthday bash for a bit, then over to Marble Arch for Jo's where we managed to sort out some details about Malta and a debate about the merits of durians (!) before heading back to the good Colonel's for one last drink. One handy thing: lapinenoireuk introduced me to Jane who, it appears, may be able to make me an ARVN or Kuomintang uniform. This could be very good news indeed!

Shame I couldn't make it to twistedanimator's and gaspode's too. This is one scarily large clusters of Birthdays!

Sunday: After Simon headed off home, tried (and failed) to find someone to fit the hobs to my boots for Lulworth, started tackling the garden.
