I went out for about an hour and was told "Fuck off you bastard!" by an old piss-head (not Proudhuff). So I did ,straight back to the safety of the hotel bar.

Yeah, sorry about that.

I'd have thought that was common parlance in Glasgow...

Looks like a grand time was had by all, with the exception of some bar shenanigans.
Just a little rough and tumble, Judge man.

Maybe most of their residents go out, and they're just not used to hundreds of lazy nerds drinking the place dry.

Was that the guy who suggested  his hair and yours would make one headfull?
I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man!

Had a good chat with Jim out in the smoking zone, a great guy! ''Twas very cold but the alcohol warmed me up. Great to meet you at last Jim and everyone else.

I must belatedly apologise for detaining you in arctic chill of the smoking area! The reasons were twofold:

1) I don't officially smoke any more so I was making the most of it!

2) I'd had quite enough to drink and was attempting to pace myself by staying away from the bar…

Plummeting temperatures and intermittent snow notwithstanding, it was good talking to you (and everyone else, for that matter).

Thanks for getting all these out there; much appreciated!  I only caught one talk on the day so it's fantastic to catch up on the stuff I missed seeing first-hand.

My Tripadvispr review of the hotel got a response from the management - not sure he knows what 2000ad is but he does concede some bar mismanagement.

Jim Campbell is a nice man shock!



Is that Cuddly Pete Wells there with Jim?

Don't believe a word of it. Jim has me in a headlock there and is telling me what he will do to me and my family if I keep on putting the crossbars on the letter 'I' in my amazing artwork. Look at the fear in my eyes!

I still wake up screaming.

Too late!  Jim's already updated his avatar from "Ageing Goth" to "Free Hugs".

I never met Pete before that evening, but got a similar welcoming man-hug from him.
Who would have thought he'd be such a nice guy!  ::)
