Listen in, listen Ian!
Rowans which was interesting - I've never been to a bowling alley where you have to get searched on the way in.Meh. It's rubbish at this time of a Sunday, when you know that the weekend's pretty much over and before you know it you'll be back at work innit. Still, it's been a fun weekend without going more than a couple of miles from home all weekend. On Friday night I went to my softball team's Christams do, which was pizza at Pappagone's and then bowling at |
On Saturday I mooched around the house all day, doing nothing much except putting my PSP on eBay and then in the evening I went to see the Mountain Goats playing at the Union Chapel. They were excellent, and I also saw Alasdair Roberts and Micah P. Hinson who were good too - Hinson ending the gig by proposing to his girlfriend on stage. Aw. Excellent night all round.
Today I just went out into Crouch End to go round the shops. When I got home, I watched Middlesbrough V Arsenal and baked. First I made the previously mentioned Dalek cookies, and then a sponge cake. I tried to make a strawberry icing to go with it using strawberries, cream cheese and icing sugar, but it was highly experimental, and I think I used far too many strawberries for the not very much cream cheese I had - it turned out far too runny, but tasty enough. This evening I've finally got round to ordering replacements for the bits of my food processor that got misplaced when I moved over a year ago - yes, I know - and doing other similarly dull stuff. As I type this I'm watching the first ever episode of Countdown, that I downloaded a few months ago and there are a few notable things:
1. It's all really, really stilted.
2. One of the competitors is really abrupt, and just says "Consonant!" in a sharp voice rather than "Consonant please" or even just sounding pleasant. And he wins, tsk.
3. They're rubbish at the numbers game - they got nowhere near either of them and I got them both really quickly. See if you can do any better:
4 6 7 10 3 1, target 493
7 1 3 1 3 50, target 833
(10 * 7 * (6 + 1)) + 3 = 493
(50 - 1) * (10 + 7) = 833
And finally, via everyone, weird animal speary tetris type game. It good. Play it all day in the office.
Musn't. Click. Tetris. Link. Have. Actual. Work.
Play it all day in the office.
I wish. My work firewall doesn't like it for some reason.
WTF? Labia-faced cats and money-box head ninjas.
Hey, your ebay user is "grabfangs"
I'd almost forgotten about grabfangs. Did I invent that, or you?
I got the first one, but not the second, even though I'd written down 49 * 17! I assume in the second one that the 10 is actually ((3*3)+1)?
