Christmas purchase

I've ordered a new Metallica bauble for the Christmas tree this morning. Hopefully it'll turn up before Christmas.

I've no idea what to actually get as my main present though.  Stumped.

Brixton Academy: Alabama Shakes

Some photos from last night's gig. Excellent.

Demoted to the 3rd team

I've been demoted to the 3rd team from the 4s this weekend.  Now I have to travel to Dover rather than having a nice easy home game.  It's meant to be 50 an hour winds during the game too! Good job I'm not playing full back.

Interesting Clark family fact of the day

One of my aunties on my mum's side is a nurse / carer for none other that Stephen Hawkins.

I'm curious as to what the alternative is

Class A drugs?

It was on a billboard by the lifts at work.

Meaty cheese sweats

Just got back from lunch with April and Steve.  Urgh. We ordered far too much.  This was after the starter of chicken thighs. The macaroni there on the left is a side dish!

EBay is great

One of my eBay purchases has turned up.  I think I'll take it for a test drive.

My work locker

No. 23. I was given a choice so chose 23 after Jamie Carragher.

Sore today

I played my first game in a little while on Saturday. I'm still very sore.  I keep pulling my hamstring which doesn't help.

The weather was horrible too, non stop rain for the entire game. Yeah.

We won 35-0.

Oops, more problems

The Cheese Grater is falling apart, one of the window panes cello out last week. A year ago or so they had to replace a large proportion of the bolts they use to hold the damn thing up due to a few of them failing.  Jeez!  Luckily this one fell onto more glass.

Wow, could they get any better?

My favourite pub (Counting House) with the best barman in the city (Doug) now serves my favourite beer (Sierra Nevada). Only problem is, it's a whopping £1.40 more expensive.  £5.90 a pint.
Maybe I'll just have it when it's James' turn to pay...

Garbage: Brixton Academy

Some photos from the gig.  Including 2 pint glasses!  Genius!

The Cloud is alive

It's been a while since I've seen this guy.  We thought he might have retired or died. We used to see him in London Stone where he'd then up at about 6:30 and proceed to neck a pint in under 5 mins before leaving to catch his Cannon Street train.

Why is he called the Cloud (or clown according to James)? Look at his hair for Christ sake.

Winner

Just beat April at Stratego.  It was close at the end but I captured the flag.  Good little game.  Took about half an hour.

The last time I played it I was about 12.

Biscuit had forgiven me

After the bath incident I thought she wouldn't come near me for a while but looks like she still loves me after presenting herself on the floor as I came home yesterday.

I've found a new source

Waitrose have stopped selling Orangina in big bottles at our local store so we've been struggling to survive.  I've now found where they store it.  Smaller bottles but I guess it'll have to do.

This was pretty much our day

On the train to Tunbridge Wells

April bought us a little treat for the trip to Tunbridge Wells last night. It didn't last long.

Sorry puss

But it had to be done. You'd wet yourself and slept in it so stank. I had to give you a bath.

My team hard at work

I was first in this morning and half an hour later still no one.
