So then. In 2002, I got an email from an obvious loon I'd never met. If he organised a warlord_ccg
event in a climbing hall
in his home town, would I be interested in attending and bringing friends? Where's his hometown? Muenster, Westphalia (that would be as in 'Treaty of', possibly one of the most significant documents in, oh, world history?). I didn't even have a passport. Massive fuss getting a passport, but eventually paulatpingu
and I managed to get there. My first trip abroad as a functioning adult
Best weekend away
ever. Seriously great fun
. I've sinced travelled to similar events all over Europe (waking up in a Paris bed next to Malk was weird, watching the premiere of the BSG mini-series in an Anaheim hotel room with Vince was slightly weirder). But the original event remains the best.
Last year was the fifth and, we thought, the last. This morning I got an email. From the same loon.shakalooloo

Didn't know how to react—for a start, I need to be saving up the pennies, second, it'd mean a weekend travelling that wasn't to go visit Jennie, and, well, I'm not 100% sure I can afford it anyway. Except when we chatted earlier, snapesbabe
said she'd like to come.
So, um, granjero
? That'd be two decks I'd like to borrow this time Mr Player Design Team member...
