Not much planned for our day off on Thursday but Friday we're wine and menu tasting for our wedding. Yum! Saturday will be messy. It's my mate's stag. Preemptive urgh!

I was sent an e-mail by gadgets.co.uk with the title Back To School. The first thing I saw was this meowing cat.

That's the third shirt in the passed two weeks or so that the left elbow has warn through! Bloody hell. I've just bought two new ones but they're saved for weddings!
And to top it off, i've spilt some coke on my white shirt i'm wearing now. Oops! Sorry April.

Incidentally we were there to see Cowboys and Aliens. Which I felt was very good. Not sure what IMDb is playing at.

As far as I can work out it was some sort of sweet bean paste desert.
Taste = Sweet custard
Texture = mushy peas.
Verdict = Yummy... Will I try it again? Hell no!
I twas better than the Lobster and Escallop sausage that I had last night with Shaheen, Kate and April in roast Borough Market. Shaheen ordered the same as me and it wasn't great. Taste was nice enough. Texture was a sloppy mess. Mmm. Not the best £30 I ever spent.

The Sausage Roll - measured in how many multiples (or degrees) of oven fresh sausage roll temperature it takes to melt an item.
Isn't this what we pay the EU to do?

I know i'm trimming down but weighing that amount surely can't be good for my knees. Especially when the season starts up again and the ground is still hard. It's not as if i'm only doing weights, i've been mixing the gay step thing with rowing, cycling and a few other bits. What am I doing wrong?
(in order of preference)
Funny how my preferences are in the opposite direction to the current imdb ratings…
Oh and I also want to see Conan?

She was shut in the spare room for a little over a day. Poor thing. So she's a little clingy today. If you look closely you'll see her lying on me. Plus i'm watching football whilst playing football manager. April's home soon though so that may have to stop...

We had a knock on the door yesterday just before we were due to head out the door to see Captain America (SC rating: 66 / 100 (1 vote)). It was our next door neighbours who had locked themselves out of their house. Doh!
They're nice enough so we ended up leaving them in our house whilst we went to the cinema. Thankfully they were gone by the time we got back.
Bloody hell, I've been away for 3 nights and look what the scum bags have done to London. Half of it was on fire yesterday. Thieving, opportunistic fuckwits.
There parents must know what they're up to with all the empty cardboard boxes everywhere in their houses and what are they doing about it? Nothing.
One comment by a group of girls when asked what they were doing was.
"We're claiming back our taxes"

Under floor heating, wii, WiFi, sky sports, movies, bbq and hot tub.
It cost a fair bit more than the camping and was a couple of hours further away but it's well worth it.

"To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan, and not quite enough time" LEONARD BERNSTEIN
"There are three things that are extremely hard - steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self" BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
The only one I can think of is
"Eating's cheating" STUART ROBERT CLARK
And I didn't even come up with it.
All I know is that the guy who's leaving meal it was now owes me £50. I did say it'll be touch and go as to whether it was going to be net account or not due to the cost of the restaurant. Idiot!
Well, it means that I should pay roughly £1,000 less tax this year. And because I've already overpaid for 3-4 months already I should get some more back in over payments. Unfortunately it won't be in one lump sum, but I am at least going to get my money back. The thieving gits!
And to top it all off I did it during office hours so got paid for the privilege.
A team member is leaving in a couple of weeks and has invited us all to lunch as a farewell. Last time someone left they booked us in somewhere quite nice and we all expected to pay so it was a nice surprise that my boss picked up the tab and put it on his corporate card. That's why our new leaver has invited us to Hawksmore.
It's where I took April this year after my bonus came through. I think it was approaching £90 per head, but I did have a £50+ steak. If the bill isn't paid for a few of us will be quite annoyed. The food's great but I certainly wouldn't go if I have to pay.
If it's your leaving meal / drinks you're expected to pay. It won't be my fault if you're stuck with a very costly bill at the end of the lunch.
After that we're all going bowling so that should be fun. I think it's somewhere near Brick Lane so not far. If that works I might see if some other friends fancy it as April's wanted to go for a while.

Nicole bought Ubertan from her local tanning salon.
She is worried about the contents but will continue to use it until there's proof that it is unsafe.
"I didn't know anything about it when I first took it, so I wasn't worried at all. I didn't even think about it really," she admitted.
"This is the best tan I have had.
"This is my last bottle now and maybe in a couple of months, I may get another one."
"You feel a bit dizzy and you get a head rush like you've had your first cigarette of the day," she said.
You should probably stop smoking as well...
