Nowdays all of my posts are Friends Only. If you want to be added comment here and I will get round to it at some point. Please note that generally I only add people I know from somewhere else, i.e. real life, online games or forums.

Well tonight finds me in a hotel in Sunny Scotland, yeah right ;). Life has been pretty good recently, with good nights out (especially anoxiana birthday celebrations) and seeing Bill Bailey. Unfortunately the NaNo has stalled badly because work has picked up a lot. However this is a good thing as I seem to be getting a balance between my writing and my work. What it does mean is that I may well not make 50K in November, but I will have a first draft completed by the end of Feb I think. It takes a while to write even the first draft of a 150K novel :).

Work wise I am away on business, doing some studying and generally doing all right. Although there is a lot on. Work politics are still annoying, but at least at the moment it is not bothering me to much.

Outside of socialising, work and writing I have been playing a lot of EQ2 recently and really enjoying the new expansion. Anyway that's about it for a quick catch up.

Well I seem to have a pretty good idea of the plot for my NaNo story this year now, so yay :). Really looking forward to November this year, but we will have to see what I think of it after a couple of weeks :).

Ah the joys of owning a house and having your mortgage come up for renewal at a time of higher interest rates then last time :(. Well there goes the disposable extra money I was getting use to having each month after my pay rise. Oh well once I learn to drive the financial situation will improve again, and at least the situation isn't to far a step back. The current crop of quotes look like a £75 a month increase in the monthly bill.

Last weekend was straythoughts birthday celebrations which were a lot of fun :). It was nice to see so many folks out, especially on the Friday, and I believe a good time was had by all there.

Yesterday I went to see Stardust with snootylj, straythoughts and tinker_goth. It's a very good film and one I am definitely going to go and see again soon :).

After that I popped over to see doctor_tron and chocolateandsex for a nice cup of tea and a chat before starting to head home. Where upon I ran into anoxiana and her mate Dave and ended up going to the Speakeasy quiz :). We didn't win but we didn't do to badly I think. Anyway a much better end to the weekend then I had expected, and just what I needed.

Tonight's plan calls for lamb casserole for dinner and another trip to the cinema me thinks.

Last Thursday I made it along to the Krav Maga class for the first time. Although it is different from Systema I did enjoy myself and I will definitely be training in Krav Maga further. It did however highlight just how unfit I am at the moment :).

The weekend seemed to mainly be composed of drinking, which was needless to say great fun. Friday night was snootylj leaving work do, and the pre-term Assault. We also had straythoughts and tinker_goth in town which is always nice. I did really enjoy the Assault, but as seems to have been a common theme among a number of folks, the next day I discovered I had enjoyed the beer perhaps a little to much and did not make it along to Systema.

However I was fully recovered by the time I arrived at doctor_tron and chocolateandsex party. The night was yet again another excellent night. Some of the highlights included anoxiana providing "test tubes of death" (although mine tasted nice), watching the stars on the fire escape (even though it was cold) and getting the chance to talk to many people I don't see nearly enough of. All in all a fab night.

Sunday was a quieter day but I did manage cook myself a nice Sunday Lunch which was good. Then in the evening it was on to meet shallowthing and snootylj at Cineworld to go and see War. It turned out to be an all right film, with a bit of a twist at the end as well. Overall pretty good entertainment, although not as silly as Shoot 'Em Up. After that I ended up having a couple of pints in the Speakeasy before heading off home.
