You will probably by now have been subjected to the huge number of paranoid ravings on the radio tv and now as part of a poster campaign (http://www.met.police.uk/campaigns/campaign_ct_2008.htm) about terrorism and how we must all spy on our neighbours and report them no mater what since we aren't to know what is suspect and what is not.
The outlaws left Lower Earley this morning to be en-route to Cambodia. Two years in Cambodia working for the VSO. They were all very excited this morning, trying to screw every last kilo out of their luggage allowance. we'll see them again in August when they return for a wedding, so it's not going to be too long. They do have a Blogger account but I can't find the damn thing at the moment.
Like a complete idiot I ran the Reading Half again yesterday. as you may remember last year I just missed my target time of 1 hour 30, by a measley 12 seconds. I know it doesn't sound like much, but there is a big mental thing about the 90 minute barrier on half-marathons
That series I keep going on about, Dexter, has recently been picked up by ITV.
They're showing the first episode tommorrow night. If you haven't seen it, its well worth watching IMO...
Matt and I are soon to be off around the planet. To celebrate us leaving you in peace for five weeks or so, we'll be having some drinks on Saturday the 8th of March.
We'll be starting early, around lunchtime, and will be inhabiting the pub until into the evening, to selflessly allow people to drop in whenever is good. Or to drink a lot. Definately one of those.
This is long post - You have been warned!
So on Friday I flew out to Athens for a long weekend of looking at old things, beer and general relaxation. I have been getting into solo travelling lately and this one was an experience that I thought it'd be worth sharing so here it goes!
A brief guide on how to cock up an otherwise wonderful evening. First, try using the Showcase Cinemas website. It's not very nice to look at but it tells you what you need to know. Try booking tickets. If you get a 500 Server error, try phoning them. If they ask why you're not using the website, don't tell them it isn't working because they'll hang up. Try phoning again.
I get up to a lot. One weekend in three, I pop up to Henlow and go flying (when I say Henlow, I mean RAF Henlow, not Baron's house. His house is really cool but I think I'd be using hyperbole to suggest you could take off in it). The weekends I don't do that, chances are I'm going to end up driving to a family gathering.
