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the amount of actual spam i've received through my Hotmail account has dropped quite considerably, however it's been replaced by the desperate attempt by real companies trying to offload the shit that's been stagnating on their shelves with the pretense of it being part of a black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

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

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.

Biscuit must have been thirsty

Good luck

Just had a text from telling me my blood had been issued to Basildon Hospital. Good luck!

A good line up on this week's Talking Dead

I need to find a new after work pub

It's not even December yet and the pre-Christmas drinkers are out in force. It's full of absolute wankers who think it's perfectly acceptable to drink their beers at the bar therefore blocking service to anyone else. Pricks.

Saphie is quite partial to a stroke

Quite a lovely station cat.

Welcome to hell

This is Weavering Rugby Club, or at least they use it for their changing rooms and after game beers.  The building was in the middle of a new estate on the outskirts of Maidstone.  I find it really strange that they have to protect their community sports facilities with high walls and barbed wire.  Such a shame.

The lads we played against were decent though so that's all that matters.

One thing's for sure though, I now know where to go in the event of a zombie apocalypse. 

We won 52-11 by the way.

Blood count 43

I gave blood for the 43rd time this morning.  Around this time in two year's time I should get up to the 50 mark.

Maybe they'll name a street after me.

Take a look here to get started, it takes less than an hour and you get free biscuits!

Games from last weekend's games day

We didn't decide on a winner.  Post here for a vote. Otherwise I am the winner (again).

I am not a number

It's nice to see that our printers are not just an ip address.  They have their own names too.

Lovely view from the lifts this afternoon

Maybe I can see Steve.

3 year anniversary

It was my 3 year anniversary at my current work place yesterday and the highlight was to leave work at 7:30 in the evening.

I think i've done most of the work now so fingers crossed things should calm down for the foreseeable future.


34 floors now

I go away for a week and it's up to 34 floors now.

New game's arrived

Get out of there you cheeky cat

The New Drum to watch the football

I watched the England game on Friday night with a few friends. Good fun chatting bollocks.

The other name for the pub is the elephant's arse.

Big ginge

Round my brothers on Thursday. This is one of his big cats Ginger.

Brighton on Wednesday

The lovely town of Rye

More shut places. This time Tuesday in Rye.

Fallout live

If you want that Fallout 4 experience without a games console just get yourself down to Dungeness.

It's a very strange place and quite an odd place to have a pub.

Camber Sands

Pants in the toilets?

There were these framed swimming trunks in the toilet of the hotel / restaurant (Gallivant) we stayed in.  Strange choice.

Monday was a shut Margate and Camber

Most of Margate was shut on Monday and we had the worst of the weather too.

Last Sunday

We had last week off work and decided to go on a mini trip around Kent and East Sussex.

Sunday was Whitstable. We went for a lovely meal in Weelers and then onto a pub that had 4 dogs and a cat in there. Decent rock music too. Brilliant.

Delayed Halloween

With April being ill on our originally planned Halloween party we decided to have a delayed one the week after.
