    Heh. I was very close to buying the Kuurupop 'Glider' at UK Ponycon, but I'm not too keen on the way they did her mane - a bit too big for me. Perhaps in the future I'll acquire my own little Glider plush though.

    The way it usually happens.... indeed everyone will want to attend different things. But there will probably be a common/vendor area where people will catch up between events (and maybe some will go to the same thing together if they all want to). And if people recognise each other from the forum or previously meeting they are likely to congregate

    As long as it does so whilst I'm indoors, I don't care ...

    My arms are kinda shaky this morning, slightly because of BUCK excitement but mostly because I made my bag too heavy with pony shirts and plushies, and they're now dead from carrying it to work.

    I use the bag that came with my bike trailer - put my clothes etc. into a compression sack, squish it down, add CCG box and various other gubbins and there's still plenty of room for swag :) All that being said, I'm not sure what I'll be buying this time, especially as I still have some artwork from UKPonyCon last year that is still unframed :oops: I'll be looking to expand the DJ collection, though :p

    I'm going to wander down for the bus in about 45 minutes, have a couple of cheeky halves and a pork pie in the York Tap to steel myself for the mind-mangling ordeal that is rail travel and doze until I get to Manchester Victoria.

    Given that work-related things pretty much ruined UKPonyCon for me last year, I've disabled my work email and blocked work numbers on both my phones - if they want something doing then they can wait 'til the 18th when I'm back in the office; as of 4pm yesterday we entered 'Me Time'

    My morning is twice as hectic as I also need to prepare for a conference on the Monday straight after the con. I'm going to be very, very tired that day XD

    I'm on the train just outside Leeds.

    There are stag and hen parties in advanced states of refreshment. I hate rail travel.
