Though disappointed that a book reading event I hoped to attend fell through for me, I still had a great party to go to in the evening. It was themed around ‘comics’ and I decided to go as Limus from Shultz’s Charlie Brown comic strip. It involved simply carrying a blanket and sucking my thumb. I bought some beer on route and headed into the party in Rochdale by Metrolink tram. I was among the first arrivals but other Charlie Brown characters came too, including Lucy, and Charlie Brown himself (twice). There was also Calvin & Hobbes, Roger Melly – The Man On The Telly, Alice the secretary from Dilbert, Minnie The minx, the Bradshaws and one of The Bash Street Kids. Batman was there twice, once in Adam West period garb and again as a man with a cricket bat stuck to his head. Our hosts were three different incarnations and costume period representations of Captain Britain. It was a great night with drinking and chatting continuing until the early hours and a live music performance thrown in too. Arthur Chappell

I am not too keen on events that require dressing up.. But you seem to have had a lot of fun.

@arthurchappell Oh my that would be embarrassing to be dressed in a costume when others dress formally or even in informal clothes.

I'm not fond of fancy dress myself, but I'm glad you had fun.
