    That'd be great! I'm going on Thursday. I'm also trying to arrange a go-back-to-Guy's-and-play-lots-of-games thing that afternoon/evening. Guy's willing to drive to Bradford and back once, to pick people up or drop them off or to hang out in Bradford instead.

    Evening? Maybe not worth an hour journey, though... Ah well, we can organise something for the weekend too!
    Totally Guy, with whom I am staying, lives just outside of Leeds (on the Bradford side).

    Weekend would be best for a larger meetup. Thurday I have to be in Bradford for 7pm as I have a rehearsal then.

    Well, wandering around Bradford handing out resumes on Thursday, and playing games at Guys on, say, Saturday (assuming he's okay with that)?

    Lime, you should come too. Grlump's awesome, he probably won't bite. Dunno about Bath.

    I've met Bath a couple of times now, and he's not bitten anyone at either of the meetups.
    You should be safe, though I can't promise anything.

    It's not hard for them to justify it, and at least they aren't making you take an unnecessary trip. After all, if you both tried out, he'd have relevant experience as well as already being trained in their specific procedures. It would be very easy for them to justify choosing him over you

    As for Saturday Leeds (it is Leeds I'd be travelling to, right?), outlook is... possible. I'll try to get a handle on things this week, see how my travel options look.

    Yeah, he did specifically mention that the other person's experienced.
    You should come! Guy's got a whole stack of awesome games I wanna try playing with more than 2 people...
    And yeah, Leeds. If you come by train, you'll get off at... New Pudsey or Bramley? One of those.

    Oh wow. Good thing I checked whether the forum glitched, cuz it did...

    I'd be okay with you coming. Totally Guy gets veto, though, cuz it's his house, and he's seemed a little iffy about having too many people around. But I'll ask!
    Hm... I think you might be within walking distance of here Wanna come over today and watch me apply for jobs?

    Regarding general event stuff: what time do you all think is good? Bath in particular, about what time would you be able to arrive?

    (also the train stop would be Bramley Station. I just checked)

    Depends where and time. If it is in walking distance, I guess, depends how badly work is kicking my ass.

    Might be easier if you had a number I could give you a buzz or text on.

    He seems fine with it. I just checked that he's alright with Trilby coming.

    So, Lime. Between "slim" and "none", what are the chances you happen to be going to York tomorrow morning and so are able to pick up an application form for me? >.<

    I don't know whether to prep an rpg or stick to the board variety.

    We played Talisman, and Guy screwed me over a couple of times - most significantly taking away my talisman when I was close to the end.

    As in, one step away from winning. We then spent the new few rounds of me trying to run my new character to middle, getting a talismin, and dying just before I could roll to reach the door.

    We.... almost bought you some books in Waterstones, almost bought you some awesome cheap shoes in TK Maxx, and almost had my backpack blown up by the security people. And saw Chronicles. Having failed to coax Dvil out of hiding to see The Woman In White with us. And talked about stuff. It was a good day :)

    Sounds good to me.

    So, just to finalise: Tomorrow (Saturday) at around 1ish, Dr Bath, GrlumpTheElder, Trilby and Lime are gonna come to Guy's place in Bramley. If you turn up at Bramley Station (I think most of the buses stop near there, too), one of us will go get you.
    Yay :3
