Manchester Boink

6 September 2005

A report on the 6 September 2005 Manchester boink was posted to the newsgroup by Laura and is reproduced here:

So we were sat in this caff, see, me and Linz and Mike the Web and that David Ormerod bloke and we had some food and a glass or two but we never wrote no notes or nuffin' and I've been out partying a bit since so my memory's a bit hazy but we had a really good chat about this 'n' that and pink wafer biscuits and we looked at Linz's snaps of her Blokes and we took some of ourselves and out the winder we can see this building being pulled down so we 'ad a look and took snaps and everyone said which bits of Manchester they'd lived in or worked in or whatever and David showed us his Blackberry thingie and that was it really.
