    What if we agree to meet somewhere like Trafalgar Square or at Forbidden Planet?

    Since I get into Charing Cross coming back from Uni anyway it would be easier, but getting to Euston will not be too difficult for me.

    I have no idea where Trafalgar Sq is, but Forbidden Planet is easy enough :p

    Glen, it would be even easier for you to come to Trafalgar Square than Euston. You need to take Northern line from Waterloo anyway, and Charing Cross (Tube station next to Trafalgar) is only two stops from Waterloo, much closer for you than Euston.

    Oh. That place is Trafalgar Sq? With the big statue in the middle?

    *has only been to Charing Cross once*

    It's the place with the lions, fountains and the pillar with a statue of Lord Admiral Nelson.
    The National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery are opposite it.

    Tis very easy to get to from Leicester Square tube station, but easier from Embankment Tube station which is next to Charing Cross.

    And if we decide to go to any of the museums it will be easier since we can go from Embankment a few stops to South Kensington, then down the foot tunnel.

    Yes, Trafalgar would be a good place to meet, whatever people decide to do.

    Also, Glen, I've just remembered the location of that store I was talking about that I consider boring but you would find quite interesting. Orbital Manga. Like the Orbital Comic we visited on TCR/Charing except it doesn't have only one shelf of mangas, its the whole shop of mangas and only one shelf of normal comics. And it is only a few steps away from the The Cinema Shop Richie mentioned.

    Awesome. Maybe I can find Hayate no Gotoku in there :p

    *now has nearly as many manga as books*

    :p

    But, yea, kk. I'm up for Trafalgar. What about other South people?

    Also, lets start a list of who can go (next thursday?):

    I have no idea what that is, but I would say it is possible that you will find what you seek there; it is a relatively large place.


    The list:

    1. Cobra
    2. Amon_Amarth

    It's a silly series. The English title would be "Hayate the Combat Butler". It's about a kid whose parents are useless with money, so he has to work, but then they steal his wages, he gets fired, and then they sell his organs to the Yakuza, so he goes on the run looking for a way to make 150,000,000 yen, and eventually decides to kidnap someone, only to save the person he planned to kidnap, whereupon he becomes her butler, and much lulz occur :p

    It makes me want to write a fanfic where 3PO isn't useless, and has awesome rocket-punches and stuff :p

    Precisely how was all this achieved if his organs were sold?
    Wouldn't that cause him to......die?

    Yea, he ran away from them before the organs could be "harvested" :p

    Might not be next week though. I'm still waiting for input on that. If things go badly for me tomorrow, I may have to go into college next thursday anyway :p

    I passed near Forbidden Planet today. Looks like they have a sale. Considering that, it would be worth to pay it a visit.

    So, are any Southies going apart from me? If not, then this'll be slightly pointless :p

    Depends when. I probably shouldn't go until after coursework deadlines/exams, but if I've done my coursework early I might be able to go.

    Well, I was thinking either this Thursday or next Thursday. I can do Wednesdays also, and Friday late afternoons/evenings, but the rest of the week is pretty much not good. Also, I can't do the 12th, because I'll be in Southampton :p

    Next Thursday would be nice. Better for me, anyway. But I can make it this one as well.
