I am in a better mood than I was yesterday. I got rather (bit of an understatement there) angry and annoyed at someone so decided the best way to get over it would be to go on a bender and get completely hammered. That will make me feel a lot better.
The sensible news is that I did not go on a bender, I ended spending several hours in The Hare watching the rugby next to some rather manly women and listening to the football scores with some West Ham fans sitting behind me who got irate that Millwall won.
After the rugby I was sitting at a table with two blokes watching the Arsenal/Newcastle game and suddenly realised one of them was Jamie Brown’s dad, who I have not seen since I was about 18. He did not remember me, which is probably a good thing.
Whilst in the pub I got to experience HDTV for the first time today. After all the hoopla that I had heard, and the adverts promoting it as the best thing since sliced bread, I was expecting some fantastic viewing experience.
Turns out it simply makes the picture look sharper, I was expecting to see players kicking the ball so it looked like it was coming straight at you like wearing those crappy 3D specs in the 80s.
Maybe it is more than just a clearer picture and I’m missing out on it due to not bringing my glasses?
Thes tried to phone me to see if I was alright, which was nice of her, but I was not really in the mood to chat to anyone. But we did end up sending texts to each other and I realised that maybe going on a bender would not be the solution this time. Not a good idea to have me out in London, at night, very drunk and in a filthy mood.
So I headed back home to spend the evening waffling on MSN. I have the MSN conversations saved if anyone does not believe that. 🙂
If anyone does not believe that I was in The Hare (because, you know, this blog is full of bullshit) you can ask the overweight barmaid/landlady who called everyone ‘my darling’.
