DFC new year's party!

I forgot to pull out my camera, so here's a rough amalgamation of the people I saw last night:



The party had a great turnout and it was really good to meet so many DFC colleagues, many of whom I'd met before but quite a few I hadn't, including Dave Shelton, Wilbur Dawburn (wilburonline), James Turner (eruditebaboon) (who turns out to live just down the street, hooray!), Ben Haggarty, Faz Choudhury and John Welding (You can read their bios here.) And most of the office staff (David, Izzie, Andrew, Laurence, Will, Tom and Pete) came down from Oxford, so it was a very jolly event. Afterwards, Stuart commented (possibly with some surprise?!), 'that was such a nice group of people', and I had to agree. Stuart is slowly getting sucked into the comics world but I don't think he minds too much.

Please don't forget to subscribe to the DFC so we can keep drinking beer.

I think it is! Although I seem to remember drinking Doom Bar that evening, which I had at the last comics event, and fortunately it is just a nice ale and less lethal than it sounds.

It's Frankentoonist! I don't know if you saw although you might have smelt it...my hair set alight thanks to some badly placed candles behind me. Fortunately the damage was minimal. Lovely to meet you, didn't get to chat to you as much as I wanted to but there were so many people. Hopefully there'll be another opportunity to get together soon!

Oh, I am going to fix the spelling of your name right now! Hmm, I DID smell burning hair. Glad there wasn't a larger blaze! Great to meet you, too, looking forward to the next episode of Dead Pets Society in the Guardian.

Oh, don't worry, my name is one of those spelt a trillion different ways! I was sent a letter once that was addressed to Mr. Cloudberry which I thought sounded quite lovely, I was tempted to adopt it permanently.

Faz Cloudberry, that's nice! Better than Clam Chowdery. (I love clam chowder but my mother hates the rubbery clam texture and won't touch it, particularly after this.)

Clam Chowdery, I love it! Y'know, I've never had clam chowder, I've always wanted to try it but after reading that article I'm not so sure...

Lovely to meet you finally, Sarah. And what a top evening all round! Well done you and Woods for thinking it up.

Please send my apologies to Stuart for barely speaking to him, even though he's a fan of the Dogs. Very rude of me. I think I just have difficulty accepting compliments sometimes.

Oh, and I too have Will Dawbarn jumper envy. It's this season's big hit.

Hi, Dave! It was great to meet you, too! No worries, Stuart was a bit in awe of you, so he got a bit shy after he said 'where's the guy who does 'Good Dog Bad Dog' and you were sitting right there! But we shall make a point to flash-mob you in Cambridge at some point, look out! :-D

Dunno what was with the goggles. Mum dragged me all the way to camden just to get them. I got to freak out some unfourtunate Victoria-workers though! Here's to more "shouldn't-you-be-working" parties in the future!
