As already mentioned we met Rebecca at the Underworld to celebrate her birthday. I sloped off into the *ROCK* room to laugh at the pool playing (saw a game that must have lasted at least 40mins and was quite amazing in that it seemed to mainly involve the players having the complete rack still on the table but still not managing to hit a single ball with the cue ball, a quality feat). Remember ending up dancing to a *ROCK* version of Aha’s “Take On Me” and other classy numbers.
When we got home we then watched the Goth comedy episode that everyone seems to have been talking about and laughed and laughed. All so true, scarily real.
Elected to forego Taekwondo in favour of a trip into town to scour Vinyl Exchange for cheap cds and a spot of lunch and a drink (or two) in Night and Day with St353 and Matt.
First, quickly popped into Afflecks to look at funky clothing and was most perplexed and taken aback when as I was stood waiting for the guys to finish browsing the (female) sales assistant came up from behind, patted my bottom and said “Who’s looking sexy today then?” .o0(um NO!)
Quickly left Afflecks and raced across the road to Night and Day where service was interminably slow and by the time my food arrived I had already drunk one and a half bottles of Budvar on an empty stomach and was feeling the effects. Food, however, when it did turn up, was delicious though. I gorged myself on deep fried cheese and assorted vegetables with a sweet chilli dip, and a whole bowl of marinated olives. Superb.
Fell asleep on the bus home, stumbled into the house and keeled over onto the bed. We were supposed to be at Rebecca’s for 7 and I don’t think we left town til 5.30, so St353 had to attempt to revive me in record time by making me guzzle cups of strong coffee.
Ordered a taxi that then took forever to turn up and finally arrived at Rebecca’s for 8. (Sorry!)
Considering we’d inadvertently only just really eaten Matt, St353 and I were all feeling rather stuffed and queasy at the thought of having to eat another meal, but when we saw Rebecca’s amazing offering of baby potatoes cooked with red onion and rosemary, alongside leek and grilled haloumi in lime juice it didn’t matter and I managed two rather delicious helpings. Amazing.
Got home around half 1 (?), connected, and chatted to Vile for a bit on Nyarnia while St353 and Matt watched Snatch.
[Had many fights with Matt and St353 this weekend about my Internet usage – grrr.]
Wanted to hug Mogs who was prowling around on the doorstep looking hopeful but couldn’t because I’d been sat on by flea ridden moggies that evening and was concerned that I didn’t want to spread the little f***ers to her..
Examined old keyboard and noticed that it seemed to have things growing in it. yuck!
Stressed about work.
Rebecca and Ruairi came around to watch the Goth comedy, it was still amusing on a second viewing.
Didn’t make it to Taekwondo. I WILL go on Tuesday, promise.
Persuaded St353 to go get all grubby and investigate Lara’s headlights with me. I was very useful and held the bonnet like a star. Poked around for a bit, changed the wrong light, then discovered that the guy in the autofactors had sold me the wrong bulb anyway. gah! Oh well, cheers anyway St353, bonus MAN points to you regardless. 😉
