Mr. Jelena looks so bad-ass, but not as much as you in your tie-dyed shirt, Step!! lol

And it's great to see you all together! I love the nametags. Jelena-what does your daughter think of you being on an adventure gaming website and meeting in person?

Don't I look bad-ass?

Added one more picture while you were posting. Close-up of a name-tag to follow (I have one if no-one else posts one)

And while you were editing your post, I was editing mine. I said you were bad ass!

Aww, Jaz looks like she's standing away from the crazy group!

Would it seem weird if I started complimenting everyone? lol

Jelena looks like one cool mom. I really do love your smile Step, and Luna's. She looks like Mr. Jelena is making a funny facy behind the camera. Tsa looks dashing, even in a wheelchair, and Jaz just looks too cool for school.

Heh, I actually just didn't want to accidentally push someone over with my backpack, so I stood a little to the side. ^^

I love the pictures....... The close up of the name tags would be great I know most everyone but there was a few faces that I dont know.

Jelena and Jaz- Pretty as always....... Jaz I love the dress

Jelena- Mr. Jelena is very handsome.....

Step and tsa- *sigh* handsome as always........ I just wish that I could have been there

Hey guys! I'm glad you all got home well

The get-together was great! It was even more fun than I had hoped it would be. You guys are great to hang out with. Yay for being with a bunch of people that are weird like me (when I told me girlfriend to save her game she didn't even do it. We did it all the time, what with all those timed and action sequences )

We have been good. We didn't burn down Amsterdam, we didn't take everything from Amsterdam, and we weren't arrested put into the lunatic asylum, so not bad huh?

Okay, so I did kind of run tsa into Jaz, and it surprises me he never got seasick with me pushing, but hey, I don't have a driver's license for pushing wheelchairs

Thanks for the pictures Step! I look a bit weird on that one, but that must be because I am inherently weird hihi

I think I'll post my pictures tuesday I think. Now is a bit late, and tomorrow I am not at home, so you got some to look forward to

Thanks for the great time, guys! We should really do this again!

Ooh, I see me didn't know I looked that weird though (but maybe that just shows I'm Luna's other half? )

It was nice to meet some more weirdo's maybe I'll start following this forum too, I should definitely play more adventure games

Luna: Sorry for not saving the game, I had some trouble finding the save button in real life

Welcome to the forums Ellvira! Let's hope you stick around . Didn't you take your save button with you when you went to Amsterdam?

Welcome, my other half! Hope you'll like it here as much as I do

(and yes, you really should play more adventure games!)

By the way, Jelena, gotta love your tea! Carrying it in my bag caused the bag and everything it included (neuroscience papers, camera, and my birthday presents I put in today) to smell lovely! Can't wait to taste it!

Nice picters.
Would've been cool to have been there; I may post a picture of myself soon so you can all vomit violently.

Edit: Oh, and hello Elvira! Hope we don't warp you too much!

Excellent pictures indeed, everyone looks so good!

I will start saving money (and practicing harder my english ) for the next get-together, since it's very unlikely it will be settled in south america.

Welcome Elvira!! and enjoy your stay!

Welcome Elvira! It's great to have you on the forums! But Luna, now you can't talk about her in the AG Community Blog, like I do with Louie!!! . I'm just kidding with you. I've heard only good things about you!

Very nice pics so far! I can practically feel the gezelligheid! Jazzie must be carrying quite the inventory on her back! (Ladder? Screwdriver? Grappling hook? Rubber chicken with pulley?)

So, I must ask; was it awkward at first, like saying hello and finding things to talk about?

That was something I was afraid of (me being shy and all that), but the moment we met it just clicked and there were many things to talk about

F5 for quicksave. Just bring one along.

(Or a gaamsaav crystal (it was a crystal, right?) but those might be a bit hard to find, especially on Earth)
Spoiler:
Anyone know what I'm talking about there?


Also, good thing Hammy wasn't there, judging by his recent posts, he probably wouldn't have given "Lena Jr." one moment of peace.

Also, anyone have a transcript ready of what you were doing? I'm sure you had a travel stenographer with you (the travel stenographer at 1:29, though you should just watch the whole thing).

Is a little summary possible? (You know, of what happened)
