Damn, I'm tired.

I really should have gone home at a decent time last night rather than waiting for The Dev to close.
Oh well, the company was good so it was worth it, but it really wasn't nice getting up at 5am this morning.
And again tomorrow, but tonight I'm off to bed early so I can have energy for tomorrow.

Who's going to The Ice Wharf in Camden tomorrow?
I'll be there about 20:00ish...

In Sweden...
It's fun
No snow :(

Myself and [livejournal.com profile] spikey_bastard was a complete set of mongs and combined forces to do my usual party trick and missed our flight Friday morning.
However, persistance was met with success when someone else did the same with the late flight and we managed to get two stand by seats. Victory. And a right royal financial shafting by Ryan Air and a cabbie which didn't get us to the airport in time. Oh well, that was a wasted £100 >_<

We went to the Pre-Party at Tech Noir which was quite good.
We walked in and [livejournal.com profile] spikey_bastard saw the quality of the women and almost started crying.
I saw the beer prices and almost started crying :]

But yeah, so far it's all good although all our electronics have run out of juice due to us not having brought any power converters and not yet having been able to find one to buy.

So no more texting/picture snapping from us.

And again...
Since I'm no good at writing long entries I thought I'd make this one in soundbite format.
[livejournal.com profile] flannelcat is a mastercook and if he ever offers to make food for you I'll suggest you say yes.
Kangaroo meat is very tasty. Definitely worth trying again.
[livejournal.com profile] gelflyng is very funny when she's trying to eat while a bit tipsy. She also doesn't take very well to being tickled :]
[livejournal.com profile] penguin_worships mother is very nice to talk to on the phone and apparently I have now become 'Mother Liaison Officer' and all calls from said mother will be forwarded to my mobile.
[livejournal.com profile] gothicbarbiecat can now expect a visit from me on the 10th of November. Tickets have been booked and everfing...
Tinitus is a go. Festival tickets and Plane tickets have been purchased. [livejournal.com profile] spikey_bastard, get that passport sorted out. You only have a bit over a month to get it sorted...
Good lord my bank account has been pillaged as if it was an English abbey back in the viking days...

As we all know the Starwars prequels sucked mighty wang. In a perfect world Joss Whedon would have made them and they would have been unsucky.
Serenity is one of the best sci-fi movies I have ever seen. I think it's even made it into my top 20 movie list of all times.
Joss Whedon is truly my new master...
And whether you like the movie or not, if you like sci-fi you must go and buy the Firefly DVD box set. Only £17.99 from HMV...

Garlic & Shots on Friday. Oh look at the collective surprise...
Not a big one. Just a meal and a few drinks. Definitely the last tube home...
Anyone coming along?
lpetersson: (Default)
Ahh that was quite a super weekend.
Friday I went to Garlic & Shots with [livejournal.com profile] camillat and also managed to find a [livejournal.com profile] penguin_worship and [livejournal.com profile] flannelcat frolicking about. Good food, drink and company led on to The Cro Bar where I got to chatting with some random people while waiting for the G&S staff to show up. After nearly an hour one the randoms and I discovered that we both work for HSBC. It's a small world...
When the Cro Bar closed we still had a thirst for the demon drink and decided to go to Pepes.
Those who know Pepes also know that it really is a place for the desperate who still want drinks at 5am.
It's a small dive that's run completely illegally out of someones basement :)
Still, it was entertaining...

Saturday I went to The Edge f The World. This is also known as Hove :]
Spent an excellent and chilled day/evening/night with [livejournal.com profile] sliding_loopz who is an excellent hostess.
I was most surprised to find that I really liked the place. It had a good feel to it and I definitely hope to go back there for a visit again.
Sunday I was a bit of a mong and managed to miss my train back to London so I missed viking practice. Bugger. Went to the gym instead, so I didn't feel completely useless.

Speaking of gymming, I have decided that it's time for another overhaul of my training regime.
For the past month I have mostly been doing classes and I have seen my cardio fitness go up noticeably, but I have lost some strength.
So now I'm going back to proper weight training with a view towards doing 100kg bench, 30kg hammer curl, 125kg leg extensions and 100kg leg curls by the end of next month. This will be hard, but I can do it. And I will do it.
I will try to keep my weight sessions to under 1.5 hours (1 hour weights, 30 minutes abs + lowerback) followed by 20 - 30 minutes intensive cardio.
That should do the trick...

Hooray for Garlic & Shots
Hooray for a valiant attempt at drinking them dry
Hooray for cute bar staff that keep bringing me drinks and food

And a double hooray for indiscriminate picture taking :)
Pictures are here.
There are quite a few as I have posted all 128 pictures I took...

After 15+ shots and a same if not more beers I think I'm excused from Viking practice today...
lpetersson: (Default)
The weekends starts here :)
Tonight, Dragonforce gig at The Barfly in Camden @ 19:30 \mm/
I saw them in Wacken and they rawked.
Tomorrow it's dinner and drinks with the ever wonderful [livejournal.com profile] camillat...
Saturday is the big one:
The Champion of The Shots Night at Garlic & Shots
Their shots menu has 101 shots on it...
And we're gonna start with numero uno and work our way towards number 101. Rar.
The excitement starts at about 17:30 - 18:00.
I expect a strong showing from [livejournal.com profile] vrghost and [livejournal.com profile] elijahtc.
I also expect Garlic & Shots to run out of Parsley reasonably early on :)

Well, that was a damn good weekend.
It started Thursday when I celebrated [livejournal.com profile] blakeshell's birthday.
[livejournal.com profile] himal was there which was nice as he hasn't been out in ages.
The organ concert we went to wasn't exactly my kinda thing and fortunately the others were of the same opinion so we left about halfway through.
We then went to a nice little pub where I got a pint of good German beer for only... £1.97.
Wow, that must be the cheapest pint in The City.

Dead & Buried was good as always. Spent most of the evening chatting to [livejournal.com profile] bad_faery and [livejournal.com profile] glenndm. It was good to see lots of people I hadn't seen in a while.
On the way home we popped by a kebab shop so [livejournal.com profile] spikey_bastard could have his traditional post-club kebab :)
£7 but it was a bloody big and good kebab with meaty treats of much delight.

Crashed, woke up, went to Camden, spent money.
Got a rather nice Cyberdog top which I can wear and I almost don't have to suck my gut in. Well, not much anyway :)
Also got a new pair of New Rock boots. Yay.
They are exactly like my old pair, but with slightly shorter straps. The reason is that I have finally given up trying to clean my old ones.
Simply too much mud and dust on them, so they will be my festival shoes from now on, and my new ones will be for normal day to day use.
Then The Dev, home, preen and Garlic & Shots. Mmmmm.
Texas xxx-Hot Chili In a Pan. Yummie.
Went to Slimes afterwards but my companions had very little alcohol as we left G&S after 23:00. Ooops.
Slimes was fantastic. One of my best in a long time. Saw and chatted to many people. Danced lots. Had fun.
And how nice it is to be the one who managed to dance till the very end non-munted, when ones munted friends couldn't.
Phear my l33t Danish stamina.

Home to catch a few hours kip and then off to Camden again. I used my switch card with utter impunity and have been rewarded with several goodies. 2 Corvus Corax CDs, Torture Garden tickets, more stuff from Cyberdog and a pair of white New Rock trainers :)
Woo yay.

Then Dev with lot's more people I hadn't seen in ages and ages. It was good. Very good.

So, a really good weekend where I saw lot's of people I hadn't seen for a while. I would give this weekend 8 golden stars out of ten.
People really shouldn't move to Luton ;)

One day in late July a group of individuals of ill repute gathered at a tavern somewhere in London...
They hid in the back where it was dark and they could be left alone by the ordinary folk...
The serving wenches served much ale as the celebration of [livejournal.com profile] elijahtc's life day went on.
Pictures of much merry making...
And a funny little video clip as well...

Normally I'm strong and I stick to a reasonably healthy life style.
I am, however, allowed the occassional cheat day, and I think it's safe to say that tomorrow Yesterday was a cheat day to last a month :)
Breakfast was a double chocolate chip muffin followed by a chocolate croissant. I ate cookies throughout the day (It's a habit in this office to have cookies readily available) and a nice big pasty for lunch.
After work it was off to The Intrepid Fox where the drinking started...
The reason for midweek drinking was a friends birthday, so the birthday boy Matt, Iselle and a mate called Gareth went on an adventure in beer and Garlic :)
Several pints later it was off to Garlic & Shots where much hilarity, excellent food and far too many shots ensued.
When the waitress brings your table a round of shots on the house you know you've been good customers :)
Some excellent pictures will be up later and it was worth it to have a cheat day...

We also decided that on the first day of the month of October we will attempt the impossible.
We shall start with the magnificent bloodshot and then make our way through the entire Garlic & Shots shots list. There are four of us who will go down in flames if necessary. Our livers are acceptable losses in this battle :)
I could imagine [livejournal.com profile] elijahtc and [livejournal.com profile] vrghost joining us for this attempt...?
Hopefully this time my wonderful friend Iselle won't try to get a person at our table to ask the waitress out :)
