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.
[Denizens Only] I get all academic'd up for a day, meet up with Dr Hawkins of a famous company, drink whiskey, decide modern life is a template I'm bored of, eat Tapas, bitch about censorship, introduce StumbleUpon and some new Icar graphics. It's all in one blog post. Hopefully I'll do more.
Sorry to do this via a blog post but really I've tried everything including google.
EMW I presume you have worked out how to heal your team mates in Mass Effect. How the fuckety fuck does one heal their team mates. All I can find is press button Y which has lead to me being juiced up to the hilt whilst my collegues and co-workers die like kittens in an industrial blender.
