That's 5:50 AM! :?

Tomorrow I have to get up at 5:50 - I think I'm excited! :lol:

I'm still jet-slagged so woke up at 3:30. :roll:

It's about time we had a story featuring a bear of very little brain :twisted: :wink:

I saw something about a Beth in the DWCon news updates last night and wondered if that was 'our Beth' - hope she'll have some time to fit us in for a few drinkies when the rest of us arrive tomorrow :D

I want to be there now! Still haven't packed, but at least I've got my train ticket.

Last time I was too nervous to talk to Terry :roll: But I did ask someone to move out the way of a picture I was taking, & when he turned round it was the man himself! :lol: I just pretended I already knew it was him :roll:

This is all getting very exciting!!
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Next UK one is in 2012, so if you turn up next year, you might be all on your lonesome.

Still, it gives you an extra year to finish your cartoon. :D
