Went out last night to Furry :) It was a cool evening ... and we stayed till the club shut (and we were the last two people on the dance floor - can you tell we'd had a little to drink? ;) ) J talked to a few random blokes about music, and I danced for ages. Was fun :) Then we went past a kebab shop on the way to the bus stop and had a chicken kebab each and it was quite stunningly nice. I've not had a kebab in years, and this was one I'd've eaten while sober too ;) Though I might've missed out on some of the onion if I'd been possessed of a little bit more judgement.

Rather predictably I was feeling somewhat delicate this morning (as was J) so we pottered about a bit till we felt capable of going into town :)

Inevitably we went to Vagabonds for lunch, followed by a bit of wandering around in town. Not much, coz it was pissing down with rain and I'd managed to mis-judge the weather when I was getting dressed and was in shorts. Still, I managed to buy a computer game in EB (Alien Nations ... I'd played a demo a while ago, it's a strategy type game, and it was only £7.99 so I picked it up). And after popping back to Vagabonds for Nachos we did the food shopping and came home :)

I'm still hacking my way through GBE, along side a bunch of others. I've never had a book take as long to read as GBE.

it's not the sort of book you sit down and read obsessively (unless you want to completely miss the point). it's definitely worth savoring a bit. took me several weeks, and i'm known to get novels in the afternoon and finish them up that night.

*great* book, though.

Yeah... by a "while" I mean the last 8 months though . I've finished countless other books in the interim :)

Are you sure you would eat the kebab while sober? You were drunk when you made that decision after all...

It's cool what computer games you can pick up as budget ones now, after they've filtered out the dross over a few years and they just keep trying to make a buck out of the decent ones :-)

Yeah, I know my judgement was impaired - but I thought I'd report my impressions of it at the time ;)
