Today I took the opportunity to come down to the blognic held at the Buckingham Arms near St. James Park, and meet up with some of the blogging community, in particular with Fr's Tim Finigan and John Zuhlsdorf. Although London is a fairly brisk train ride from home, I was rather tired when I reached the venue, and collapsed into a chair rapidly downing several pints. Here are two photos taken by Fr. Z himself: I am behind Fr. Tim reaching semi - inebriation. Mac McLernon is nearby.
After a while conversation began to flow freely:
And of course the star of the show was Fr. Zuhlsdorf himself: Fr. Michael Clifton is behind him. (H/T to Fr. Tim:)
Afterwards we went to the Ha Ha bar near Westminster Cathedral for dinner, a very convivial occasion. Unfortunately for me, I had to leave early as pumpkin time drew close to catch the train home to Birmingham.
