I am back as well. Trip was uneventful and good. I am now with my cat, usual strange mixture of tired relief and anxious regret that signifies Mittens was a success.

I am also back. I enjoyed it very much. Sorry I didn't say goodbye to anyone but Helm, but I didn't want to wake anyone up.

Nacho & Lorena, thank you very much for organizing it! I'll assume Goldmund gave you the money I gave him to give you for the camping costs.

I just arrived in Stockholm and am a zombie. I'm not sure if I should go to school tomorrow (or actually later today) or not. On the other hand, Mittens 2006 was probably the best thing that I've ever experienced, seriously. I've got a couple of photos, but only a couple. I can't upload them in a while though, but a couple of other people had cameras there as well. CJ, post the group photo before anything else!!1

Ah, what could I say! I wish it hadn't ended yet, it was so great to see the old buddies again and meet the new people (I've got most of you in my MSN contacts already, but if the rest of you want to add me, the address is in my profile). So much stuff happened, and yet it felt like the whole thing went by in a whim. I could start a list of quotes and highlights here, but nah. You'll just have to wait, har!

I return from mittens with no money but many new friends. Its nice to put a voice to some of those I have known online for quite a while.

Will post the quotes I have when I am not so tired.
Thanks to Nacho and Lorena for hosting, thanks to goldmund and dominika for the barcelona drive, thanks to CJ for the england airport driving, and thanks to 1 euro for a pint of beer.

I am awake - thank you very much to CJ for taking me home last night! I aers appreciate it :) Or should I say, I arse appreciate it! This years Mittens was absolutely superb, with so many great people, great activities and great stories (+ some slightly dodgy ones! ;)) ... Hahahaha! Really had a great time so thanks again Mr Farlander and La Lore!!! Awesomeness :)

Let me be the first to quote! In Barcelona Gary cracked a joke to our sharp leader, CJ:

GARY: A man walks into a Bar... Celona.
CJ: ...What's a Celona?

ps - photos & sound clips coming soon :)

Chrille - hehehe!!! That's cool! And although the dialogue and situation aren't so similar, that's exactly what happened!! Oh those crazy Asian burger guys!

As promised, here are the sound clips my mp3 player managed to capture. Sadly, none of the wet t-shirt competition clips came out :(

I am also back!

Mittens was cool as always; t'was good to meet you three new guys and I hope you enjoyed yourselves. Equally, t'was great to see all the regulars again; we missed you too Andail, don't you dare miss it next year ;)

At Petteri's request, here's the group photo:

m0dsy, I don't seem to be able to listen to your wav files, do they need any special software or anything?

Oh, and I almost forgot ... thanks for Nacho and Lorena for hosting us, to Nacho's dad for the free wine, to m0ds for starting the whole mittens thing in the first place, to everyone for coming, to Captain Power for getting us through the storm and to everyone else I've forgotten. I love you guys, but I still hate what you represent.

And if you thought Peniscola and Arse were bad, how about this:
