I love you baby


The convention did have its lighter moments. Mr and Mrs Bill Menking (Bill writes reviews for AJ and the couple run The Architect's Newspaper out of New York) decided Las Vegas was just the place to renew their wedding vows. So did their friends Mr and Mrs Bob Roberts, also attending the convention. If the Little White Chapel was good enough for Britney Spears, surely it would be alright for them? The ceremony took place at 11pm. But, about a minute before it began, who should invade the chapel? Only a contingent of AJ/AR types, including Paul Finch and Jonathan Stock, buoyed up by cocktails and dinner on the 64th floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

Party animal Matt Fairman of visualiser Smoothe also surfaced, making for a rowdy photograph session with the happy couples, before the entire group crawled into a large white stretch limo to be whisked away for more, and quite unnecessary, anaesthetic.
