I have just spent a glorious weekend with 11 totally insane people. The usual suspects were there: [livejournal.com profile] eatenbyweasels, [livejournal.com profile] esmerelda_t, [livejournal.com profile] gingerpig, [livejournal.com profile] lonelybrit, [livejournal.com profile] madders, [livejournal.com profile] princess_s, [livejournal.com profile] ruric, [livejournal.com profile] vampirefever and the newly betrothed [livejournal.com profile] vic_amy_z. We also had some fresh blood in the forms of [livejournal.com profile] sometimeredhead, a woman with a prodigious caffeine habit and a disturbing knowledge of government lube guidelines, and [livejournal.com profile] ok2nv_theoracle, this year's token male and token American! He did us proud. ;)

My liver may never forgive me. I consumed about 70cl ( around a fifth) of scotch, and almost a third of a similar-sized bottle of bourbon. And then there was the bottle and a half of ginger wine that was my main 'mixer'... ;)

Let me tell you more! )

In conclusion: I AM BACK, Y'ALL! Whatchoo been upto?

In about 5 hours, I have to get up, to catch a bus to catch a train to catch a lift to a wild weekend of debauchery, good food, good porn and good cooking.

I will try and check this post before I stagger out the door, but I make no promises. Mornings and I do not get on.

Smooches and hugs to you all! See you when I get back! And if you do something I really really need to see, please drop a link here. I'd hate to miss anything!
darkhavens: (woo! [literati])
It's that time again! Ten mad cows in a farmhouse filled with fabulous food and copious amounts of alcohol. I'll miss you all, don't break LJ or the internets while I'm gone, and I'll be back on Monday night, exhausted, pickled from the inside out and twitchy from lack of internet access.

*smooches you all*

Horbling IV was a resounding success! There was much fine food, good company, new fic, and copious amounts of booze. Together we managed to traumatise one waiter, terrify one chef, repeatedly abuse one caped monkey and several anatomically correct knitted men, and communicate in multiple fandoms with only minor disorientation and repeated 'Who did what? I don't know him, what does he look like? Ooh, nice! Carry on!'s.

I am going to try and tackle my monster flist, but feel free to link me to the good stuff in comments so I don't miss it all. :D

*twirls you all*

On Friday morning I shall be making my annual pilgrimage to Horbling, a tiny town in the wilds of Lincolnshire, where I and [livejournal.com profile] anyasbuttmonkey, [livejournal.com profile] esmerelda_t, [livejournal.com profile] vic_amy_z, [livejournal.com profile] bouncymonkey, [livejournal.com profile] eatenbyweasels, [livejournal.com profile] lonelybrit, [livejournal.com profile] madders, [livejournal.com profile] princess_s, [livejournal.com profile] vampirefever, and [livejournal.com profile] gingerpig will revel in three days of fine food, copious amounts of booze, various fandoms, bad porn, good fic and lots and lots of fun.

Out of curiosity, I googled Horbling to see if there were any pretty pictures I could share, but a Youtube link caught my eye instead.

embedded link inside, plus coded link for those, like me, for whom embeds do not work )

The clip is entitled 'HORBLING to BILLINGBOROUGH' and it means what it says. Horbling lasts for about 38 seconds, and the remaining minute and a half is the journey to the centre of Billingborough.

Horbling is a tiny, tiny, very pretty town! :D

I'm back!I

I'm back from Horbling! I'm exhausted, happy, and skint, but I have a cock on a stick, a mug that reads 'In Horbling, no-one can hear you scream', and a bum leg thanks to Birmingham New Street train station. (Grr Argh OW!) Much fun (and food, and alcohol!) was had by all. :D

So, what have you all been upto? Anything I need to know/see/read/comment on? Have you been good? Bad? (If so, details please!)

Missed the porn you all!

PS - MY PORN MUSE IS BACK!

In less than 8 hours I'll be on a train to Horbling in Lincolnshire to spend time with a great bunch of flisters. I'll be back on Monday. Don't do anything I wouldn't do!

*smooches you all*

I'm back!

Exhausted, happy, ready to spend the next few days recovering from all the fun and frolics and food and alcohol. Ooh, and Firefly. :D

So, even though I'll be paging back through my flist to make sure I miss nothing, tell me what I should be looking at right now. any good fic? Did someone have a baby while I was gone? Is there a kerfuffle I should take a nice big stick to? Link me to anything you think I'd like to see.

*hugs you all*

It's good to be home!
darkhavens: (puppy pile [me])
I have to be out of bed and ready to go in five hours, so it's time for me to say goodnight and I'll see you all on Monday.

I'm off to Horbling again to party with [livejournal.com profile] vic_amy_z, [livejournal.com profile] anyasbuttmonkey, [livejournal.com profile] gingerpig, [livejournal.com profile] vampirefever, [livejournal.com profile] princess_s, [livejournal.com profile] lonelybrit, [livejournal.com profile] esmerelda_t, [livejournal.com profile] eatenbyweasels, [livejournal.com profile] bouncymonkey, [livejournal.com profile] ruric, [livejournal.com profile] ely_jan and [livejournal.com profile] madders.

Expect copious amounts of porn on my return. *g*

*waves to you all*

The money shot. :P )

I'd take a picture of the book too but meh, it's a book - hard cover, lots of pages. You know what they look like. So, instead I have decided to share a gem or two from its pages. This is the first thing I found when I opened it up:

Mucophagy )
Pie Throwing )
So, what's for dessert?

Well, I'm back. It was an amazing weekend, though of course I missed you oodles... except for those who were there with me, cos now I'm missing them!

A quick checklist of the main points - )
darkhavens: (smooch)
Huh. That sounds like some kind of intestinal or bowel problem, but the truth is, in 14 hours I will be on the first of 3 trains on my way to Horbling in Lancashire (I think) to spend the weekend with [livejournal.com profile] vampirefever, [livejournal.com profile] vic_amy_z, [livejournal.com profile] gingerpig, [livejournal.com profile] princess_s, [livejournal.com profile] eatenbyweasels, [livejournal.com profile] lonelybrit, [livejournal.com profile] esmerelda_t, [livejournal.com profile] madders and our guinea pig token male, [livejournal.com profile] anyasbuttmonkey.

There will be chocolate, alcohol, porn, tacky gifts (mine is... christmassy *g*), and handmade Devonshire clotted cream fudge. Oodles of it. Vanilla and chocolate. It's sitting here tempting me but I am strong. There's no way I can eat over a pound of fudge before 4pm tomorrow, right? There's sure to be some left for the others...

This of course means I will have about 4 days of flist to catch up on when I get back. ::quivers in terror::

I'm going to miss you all like crazy every minute I'm having fun, honest! *smoochies to all*
