Oh good! Did you like the guy in the Carrot costume? Very brave of him but he did have nice legs!

Djelibabi did a great Bursar! (at least I think it was Djelibabi). Might have been a bit sloshed at the time! :oops:
Next year I think I might enter the Maskerade. That was fun.

A very odd building. There were more back stairs than I could shake a stick at! A rabbit warren is what it was.

I didn't get to ask about the insurance, it was just so picturesque!

Looks like you had a good time Meer.

@ RJH there is always quite a lot at Discworld cons but it's not compulsory to do so.

Gods, there were at this one! But there was so much to choose from! It was fun in itself working out the day.

The food though, was splendid and you got looked at with a puzzled expression if you only had a small hot breakfast. I was told I could go back! The menu I hope came out ok and that you can see the choices?
What a choice, even if you were vegtarian. The lady next to me had gluten issues and they served her up gluten free and she got a strawberry pavlova whilst we had to make do with fruit crumble (ice or ice cream or both) or a warm brownie with cream and ice cream... I mean, really......oh and there was coffee and tea. NO MINTS! but we couldn't have managed them anyway! :lol:

Oh, and the chips were excellent! :wink:
