    Was wondering! I know some people from here have met each other during scandalous nights out in bars all over the UK ( ). I wonder who else?

    I've met 3 Mixers now. The lovely Mr. Handsome from Belgium a couple of times now (Frederic of course), Mr. Moderator while visiting Amsterdam (the lovely Plym) and yesterday I met up with the one and only Thriller (also in Amsterdam).

    Although it's quite strange at first, all the times have been really fun! It's weird to see the face behind the avatar, but after a while it's like you do know each other for a long time (which you kind of do, of course).

    Soooo.. who else?

    I've not met anyone from here but I'd like to. It's difficult because the people I get on with are scattered all about the place, from Northern Ireland to Sweden, from Kent to Germany!

    I've met BanZai and one other.

    I'd happily meet BanZai again. It wasn't uncomfortable and I wasn't nervous and we chatted and chatted and he was exactly like I thought he'd be.

    There's plenty I'd like to meet. They know who they are.

    martinp
    John
    matthew_dixon

    Lars
    tdc2000

    Met once...
    SholasBoy

    I think that's all of them...

    That's probably more than enough

    Saying that, I'd like to meet up with several of these guys again as I had some great times and always love an excuse to head south... and there are still a couple more people I'd quite like to meet before my time on the mix is up.

    Quite a few, let's see...

    Chantal - at a Sherbet Antlers gig
    Pippa_Paranoia - stayed the night on her floor... together with the mouse!
    Dazzle - in a small McDonalds at Leicester Square before a night out in GAY
    loopdaloop_69 - with Dazzle
    king_oxymoron - with Dazzle
    lars - on the train at Hayward's Heath
    aneta - with Lars
    Amir - with Lars
    Virgostar - in a restaurant in Brighton
    John - shortly after Virgostar
    LaDiDah - with John
    potojr - outside the Houses of Parliament before going for lunch in a pub one day
    tdc2000 - at Victoria Station, before showing them Buckingham Palace
    steophonic - in a Spanish restaurant in Camden
    RobW - at Cardiff University Students Union. With John. VERY randomly!
    pepster - By the tube station at Swiss Cottage in London
    Tiger - Outside my house here in Cardiff... and then a month at a hotel in Jerusalem!

    I think that's all, and I think that's just about in order as well... Should be at least one more before the year is out I reckon.

    I would love to visit everyone I've chatted with on MSN and on Facebook. Maybe I should start visiting xtofer,abi and pollei first.

    Despite me being on UKMIX for nearly 8 years... I haven't met any UKMIXers yet. Must be the distance factor, as I'm in Canada and far away from any other UKMIXers.

    However, I am currently hoping this will change this year as I've become more comfortable travelling, and want to get a few meet-ups in this year.

    I have met a few people I know from other forums though, and they're pretty much as I expected them to be - basically, if I get along fine with you on MSN/forums, I'll get along fine with you in real life.

    I haven't and I'm not likely to ever meet anybody, considering as of today I am the only active New Zealander on the forum.

    I wish I could meet my J-pop friends and go to an Ayu gig or something though
    I've now met Dean Ambrose FOUR TIMES - 28/03/15, 02/04/16, 20/08/16 & 01/04/17!!

    Righty o, here's my short little list:

    Muzikritik - when he came to Sydney many years ago for a visit with some family members. Played tour guide and he was kind enough to give me his copy of Brooke Fraser's first album as a way of saying thanks, which hadn't come out at the time in Australia! Still play that album a lot too.

    Then the rest were all from my 21st birthday trip around the world:

    John - once in London, mosied around music shops for the arvo/afternoon and contacted Daz, who couldn't understand me and my accent . Then we caught up again in Brighton for a small UKMIX gathering. Also met...

    loopdaloop69 - In his lunch break (?) at some music store John & I happened to walk into.

    Dazzle - met him the day before said 21st birthday. Almost got lost meeting him and martinp too.

    martinp - on the same day as Daz and once again with another UKMIXer (see below) for my birthday the next day!

    Adam/king_oxymoron - as he mentioned, mosying around London on my 21st, him and Martin gave me a card which was lurvely! (Random memory - can vaguely remember lunch at TGIF's and one or both of you being fussy about the contents of your hamburger ) Adam thought I was really weird (still does) for wearing a tiara around London all day Not like I do it at home....

    matthew_dixon, PippaParanoia, lars, aneta, Amir (who talks really frickin fast), LaDiDah (am I missing anybody else from that meet aside from John who I mentioned above?) - in a restaurant in Brighton, a hastily organised meeting whilst on my travels in Europe. Just wish I hadn't had to have take off so fast in the end. Lindz/PP did get her Swiss chocolate back eventually!

    Still want to meet a lot more people though, I should make up a wishlist .
    Let's embrace the point of no return.

    Oh aye - I should mention that when I say "where" on my list, I mean the FIRST time I met them.

    In terms of frequency...

    ONCE
    RobW
    LaDiDah
    Virgostar
    Dazzle
    loopdaloop_69
    aneta
    Pippa_Paranoia

    TWICE
    pepster (within a week of one another I think)
    Tiger

    THREE TIMES
    king_oxymoron
    steophonic

    FOUR TIMES
    tdc2000 (twice on each of two of his UK visits)
    lars

    FIVE TIMES
    Amir
    John

    SIX TIMES (I think...)
    potojr

    TOO MANY TO COUNT
    Chantal (I think we must be over 30 by now probably, when you put together all the gigs, all the Jam Jar nights, all the music quiz nights, birthday events etc... and to think it all started because Lindz persuaded me to join the SpaceTheBand forum and I found someone who also liked Divine Comedy, Bluetones, Catatonia, Space and Ooberman!)

    Ah now I remember...can't remember what you both hated though. And yes, it was, erm, "brave" of me to wear it...but like I said, I don't do it at home and besides, I'm never going to turn 21 again in a foreign city, so why not do something a bit out of the ordinary?
