"Call My Fluff" gave birth to the "Floccinaucichino"
There were a few other things that we came up with that I forget

You ordered it wrong! You need to ask for a floccinaucichino (pronounced flock-ee-knock-ee-chino).

I've only played it once for about 10 mins while I was at Furble and Exile's place ^^

And you were pretty damn good at it, truth be told.

Having lived in Manchester, I'd say the chance of that city running dry because of Shell garages not being supplied is slim to none. A better reason to fill up on Friday is that by Monday it'll be 5p more expensive everywhere.

But yes, the overall idea is sound  :D

Never heard of it XD Out of interest, what gave you that impression? And thank you! I love my babies X3

Tobias and Todd are the names of two agents in it, and, me being the TV geek I am, I instantly jumped to that conclusion.

I guess there is such a thing as coincidence. Who'd a funk it?

I have two rats who I love to bits! Tobias (Blue) and Todd (Black) <333


And, might just be me reading my level of Geek into a completely non-geek situation, but you wouldn't happen to watch NCIS, would you?

I went and checked it out today, to see where it actually was... and if I remember rightly, did someone say it was near the Gmex? because it isn't XD Gmex is the other side of the city. And honestly it's a bit confusing trying to find the place, nice area though just LOTS of bridges to get anywhere. ^_^.
It's not that far away, about half a mile at most. QED.

The only thing on the other side of the city even vaguely similar sounding is the Nynex, but that changed to the MEN Arena looong ago.

A few furs have a 'camel-back' inside their suit which is basically a water fileld backpack with a long tube they have inside their head... when they need a drink, they suck on the tube... easy!

Me, I rely on a long straw and making bar purchases... luckily I have a moving jaw and can open my mouth to get the straw in!  :D

Or, like me, they have the full tac-vest, complete with camel-bak, allowing bother water and alcomahol to be drunk dependent on mood, and with the tactical drinks probe you mentioned. Although that works less for those who don't go for the whole "kicking in your door and handcuffing you to a radiator" look... >_>

2008 Discussion / Re: T-Shirt Contest designs: Which do you prefer?

I like Embers entry the most with Silverwolf second for two reasons.

1. Ember is my boyfriend
2. I love his catchphrase 'cartoon animals : serious business' :D


Except for the boyfriend bit  :P

It also is so simple it's brilliant!

Questions and Answers / Re: Options to Attend, Round 2
« on: January 31, 2008, 22:47:28 »
What I'm failing to udnerstand here is why people in Manchester are so miffed at having to pay for a hotel in their own town. So what? You're getting to a furcon, there'll be huge ass room parties, everyone in one area, masses of things to do day and night, what use is a day pass if it runs 24 hours?

Would you go to the pub a few meters from your house, have a few drinks and then decided that it would be better to get a hotel room than walk a few feet home?

At one EF there was something called a attendance only registration. which only let you attend con events and show, exculded was accomerdation and food which made for a bulk of the registration fee anyway. Oh and you could still stay at the consite all night, just not sleep there, so you could attend a room party if one happend.

It would be a much cheaper option if you lived near by the con as you would save upto 50 to 75% of the registration fee, but sadly thats not going to happen.

Anyway I am sure that the fursuit parade will be free to attend if its outside, as well as the olympics thing. Also I am sure that there might be some furs heading out to town during the con too.

Just keep an eye on this board about an events or vists being aranged before, during or after the con. 

The main difference between staying at my local pub after a night out and staying at the YHA for ConFuzzled is the vibe you get at a convention. It's all about the atmosphere of the event. The fact that people will sit about until stupid o'clock in the morning chatting, drinking and generally socialising. If someone was on a day ticket option, there'd have to be a kick-out time at some point, meaning they wouldn't get to sit around until stupid o'clock socialising.

For me, even missing eight hours a day (assuming a 1000h admittance, 0200h kick-out) is eight hours I could have been socialising (Sleep is for the weak! Caffeine works just as well  :P).

Anyway, this whole thing is a bit of a moot point. There isn't a day-pass option, so the whole debate about the pros and cons of one is a little pointless really.
