Our regular flyhalf (10) is away for the first two games of the season due to his cricket commitments. I've been told that I may have to be drafted in from my usually inside centre roll.
I'd like to apologise for the wingers this Saturday as they're certainly not going to be getting any ball. Good job it's still in the summer as they'd die of hyperthermia in January.

Although I have no doubt that 95% of ticket inspectors are indeed little Hitlers there was no need for this, she was shouting at a group of four of them as we all went past laughing. Stupid girl. I hardly think they're going to be lenient when you've just hurled abuse at them for 5 minutes. Scumbag.

As a delayed celebration for April passing her exams (with flying colours) and getting placed on her fastrack management scheme at work, I'm getting fleeced. We're going to http://www.vertigo42.co.uk/ then http://www.gauchorestaurants.co.uk/restaurants/restaurant.php?id=city tonight.

I went to rugby training for the first time in ages last week and quite surprisingly I wasn't the least fit. In fact I didn't look out of place at all. That's probably due to the overall fitness of the rest of the team rather than my general lack of it though.
The new season starts in just over a month so I thought I'd give getting fit a chance. So far this week I've been to the gym twice. It would have been three times but April needed me home for something.
I've been going at lunch times and apart from being quite busy is generally fine, with only small waits in between machines, which I don't mind as it gives me a chance to breath. The best part of it is that I'm away from my desk for an hour each day then I get to eat my lunch back at my desk which gives me an extra 15 mins not working.
I don't mind work, in fact some of it is certainly very interesting but I do feel it is important to get away from work at lunch and it probably best to have something to do other than going top the pub… Saying that, I won't be going to the gym on Fridays, that would be silly.

After a very hectic weekend the weekend before I was still absolutely shattered last Friday so I headed straight home. There's never anything on TV on Fridays (at least for my niche demographic) so I decided to start playing Mass Effect 2. I hadn't finished the previous one yet but it was so long ago that I last played I thought I'd just go ahead and play the sequel.
Although I play it on easy it really is a great game. Most of the missions are well thought out and the character interactions are some of the best out there. Anyway, I mostly played that this weekend and got a good 10+ hours in.
In addition to that I went round my captain's house to watch Australia lose to New Zealand. Great game. Very brutal.
I also took April out to Carluccio's
Then on to Tunbridge Well's Hotel Du Vin for a very nice Zinfandel. Apparently the Hotel has it's own vineyard out the back… this surprised em as it's smack bang in the middle of Tunbridge Wells.
