Gaming in the pub

I was waiting for April in a pub just off Kings Cross last night and group of guys unpacked started playing Ticket to Ride: Europe.

I'm thinking of seeing if I can convince a few locals to do the same in Tonbridge. Perhaps the first Monday of every month starting in the new year.

Photos from the Scala

The Pins and headline act Honeyblood. Excellent gig.

Some views of the city from the lift

I was stuck in the lift for 10 minutes earlier in the week. One of my managers was stuck in there for 2.5h on a Friday night. But here are some photos of the view.

I 'won' a copy of Guess Who on Ebay

Last year I made a version of Clark Trumps for my nephew Sam.  This year I was going to make Tonbridge Trumps for all of our Tonbridge friends as Christmas presents.  But April convinced me that this may cause more harm that initially intended.

Suggested categories were

Height
Age
Weight
Style
Volume

I have instead decided to make Tonbridge Guess Who.  Now to find and print amusing pictures of all my Tonbridge friends...

Will it last?

33 days till our next delivery, with the sub 0 temperatures I can't see it lasting. I think there is only enough there for 5 or 6 fires. I think I will need to do a trip to our local store.

Black Friday

Jeez, it's tiring.  Recently the amount of actual spam i've received through my Hotmail account has dropped quite considerably, however it's been replaced by the desperate attempt by real companies trying to offload the shit that's been stagnating on their shelves with the pretense of it being part of a black Friday sale.

The same companies are still e-mailing me telling me about the black Monday sale.  FFS.  If I didn't buy anything on Friday, which I didn't, then unless you offer me another 30 / 40 % off then I probably won't buy on Monday.  In fact, as punishment I will unsubscribe to your mailing lists.

Here's a list of the worst culprits

Samsung
Austin Reed (no longer a live entity as all of their stores are now closing down, thier recievers are just trying to offload their old shite)
All Saints
Playstation

Ceilidh no. 2

We went to a friend's 40th birthday party on Saturday. The second Ceilidh of the year.  The second time I had to point blank refuse to get up and dance and despite them naming me individually in the opening speech and multiple times during the proceedings. This is quite frankly bullying.

Not that I would have got up anyway but I also have an excuse. My ankle is still injured from last Saturdays game so jumping up and down like an idiot would have only aggregated it.

Ba humbug.

April's new hair

We've found a huge vegetable market in Tonbridge

On the way to the vets on Saturday we finally decided to take a look at Tonbridge Saturday market. It's always looked quite pikey from the outside so we'd never been in our 8 years living in Tonbridge.

But what did we find (other that a lot of pikeys...) a huge vegetable market. Brilliant. And also a French cheese stall.
