I'll be there. Ahh the John Deacon Fan Club. You can rely on a number of things at conventions

1. Everyone will say this is the last one.
2. A mad Welsh bloke with a mullet will prance around the dance-floor like Freddie at 10am while the "Queen Aerobics" is on.
3. You always spot the ends of society wearing ill-fitting Queen T-Shirts from 1984.
4. You pay extortinate bar-prices.
5. Every second person seems to be Dutch
6. The John Deacon Fan club will be royally pissed up.


Guess who's back?

Is it too late to book?

I was going to go but my mate let me down so will have to go on my own :(

Anybody ever done one of those 'share' things where they pair you up with somebody else?

Roll roll roll a fag gently down the road, find a flame and spark it up and sell it to a friend!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The JDFC are twats.

Aside from that, I agree with Banquo.

Plus there will be some truly terrible tattoos

Chortle! Please, tell us more about your woes, I could do with a laugh.

Alas, I won't be attending the convention either which I'm sure you're all mortally distressed to hear.

I can't sleep in those shit-hole chalets at my time of life. I can't have my bed in the same room as the kitchen, for goodness sake. Not to mention hearing the bloke next door tuning his bowels each morning. Plus the complaints from the neighbours about the noise of my banging headboard tends to grate after a while.

Make sure someone buys Banquo a pint. He's a damned fine egg and I hope he gets his leg over.

You've never seen the women at Conventions have you Flashy? Getting my leg over needs a barrel of lager and temporary blindness. Having said that things could be different this year. And I'll agree about the pint for me, I'll be the one in the Preston North End shirt falling over.

I think it might be the Preston shirt that is blowing your chances in the legover department, young Banquers - not the ale.
I suppose its alright for cleaning up with afterwards, but its never going to be the world's greatest minge magnet, let's face it.

Mr Zombie - au contraire - a bunch of students shouting drunkenly and wearing orange wigs, delivering their interminable once-funny version of Angels, and writing RT reviews for the Bury Times are generally more easy to spot that an untattooed average bloke wandering around marvelling at the levels of stupidity exhibited by the receivers of the best education money can buy.

So, on balance, maybe it's you who don't know me...?

Yeah, and one of you dickheads kindly elbowed me in the throat when you were 'larking about' at the September party in Reading a few years back. I can accept high jinks, but that bloody hurt and you didn't even notice you'd done it!

Not all the women who go there are that bad PG! I've been going for a few years now, and I look alright!

I had trouble sleeping last year - pregnant, and unable to drink alcohol, plus sleeping was dificult anyway.


This year however, I'm having a break, leaving partner babysitting, hence no transport.


Anyone travelling via north Manchester and has room for 2 (will pay towards petrol)?

Leaving your partner babysitting, Simoriah ?

North Manchester, you say?

Room for 2 eh? Another bird is it?

Might be tempted to give this thing a whirl yet.

No it's my male best mate!!! Scuppered my chance of a lift now.

Well, my partner went away for a weekend, and it's about time he looked after little one by himself. I'd love to bring her with us, but she's too young. He's not so much of a Queen fan as I am, and I haven't missed one since 1992.

Simoriah, you are completely correct. Not all women there are bad, and I've always said how lovely you are (in a non-stalker kind of way, of course).

yeah right. ;)

There are some majorly unattractive specimens there though.
At least go for one who wears different clothes each day and has all her own teeth!
