The view from my desk.

It has been fairly comedic though. One girl on my team took most of the morning trying to find space for her collection of shoes and has only just stopped moaning.
It was only yesterday that I noticed that our parcel had indeed be posted, it was thrown round the back entrance and had no doubtably been there since the 15th April. Having had half of the whole years rain in the month of April meant soggy packages.
Luckily mine was cellophane wrapped, April's fared less well. Wait here for our complaint.
The signs weren't good, we could hear the place before we could see it. Some sh!t popular song that the kids listen to I think. When we finally saw the front door there was a bouncer outside. That's always a good sign. But we persevered. The music was unbearably loud, so we went into the second section which wasn't too bad, except of course for the clientele... We left straight away and to our old favourite the P&J (Punch and Judy). Phew!
I do think that it’s a missed opportunity however. There are certainly more normal people at our end of town compared to pikeys and they must have seen how popular the P&J was since that changed owners. Bloody terrible.

Decent comic book action film. 3D didn't really add much. Would have been better if we had a clue to half of the characters back stories.

Really gross, really funny, nice metal music throughout and unlike most things on TV. It's really worth catching on Syfi (Tuesdays at 10) or downloading. The good news is they're making another series.

Legged it to London Bridge a touch early so looked into buying some food from the vending machine on the platform.
Result! There was 2 pound in it. Someone must have had to grab their train. Doh!
Doh for them woohoo for me. Free big malteeser bag for us.
Only issue was I couldn't claim the remaining 60p as my train arrived.
Now I know how those poor chaps feel in Gauntanimo Bay...
Waiting at the bar of Bedroom Bar, Shoreditch, on my own whilst 50+ ukulele players separately practice their songs before the gig.
White Noise. Argh!
I'm going to be humming when i'm cleaning windows all week.
Probably not. I've a hole in my work suit's (wedding suit) pocket trousers. The pocket where I keep my keys and change.
When will I learn to put them in the other pocket? I've just put the change from the cab ride in my pocket only for it to roll straight out onto the street.
Being part Scottish, they hit me on the back of my head before they hit the ground. But no sooner as I picked them up, I put them back in my pocket. The wrong pocket. Idiot.
In a 'pub' called the Shoreditch off Shoreditch High Street. It's far too cool for me. Still in my work suit. But they have Sierra Nevada on tap so who cares? My bank balance probably.
April's uke gig later.
I left a message on their message board saying that the doctors and nurses were great but the reception system sucked. That made me feel better.

Tepee in Devon followed by boutique hotel in the New Forest. Can't wait. Apart from the cold camping part. Brrrrrr.....
Thankfully the fuel strikes don't look like they'll be causing problems in the near future so at least we'll be able to get there.
It's looking like we'll finish 4th this year. Not bad for getting promoted last season.
It cost us £7 each and we only really had time for a couple of drinks and one band. Very good though. It was like a local version of the crobar! By all accounts it's not always like that and it plays different music on different nights but I thought it was pretty cool. They even sell cans of Red Stripe! Brilliant.
In other music related news we're off to the Barbican to see the Mountain Goats (again) tonight.
Food first here though
Should be a fun night
