I can do anything around the middle of england. Too far south or north is mad hassle and involves changing trains. But I would be well up for paintball cos that shit is hella fun.

Sounds good, they have some nice rums in the White Horse as well from what I've seen, if you can stand all the plaid shirts and waxed beards.

Well if the middle of England is the easiest for everyone we'd be happy to put a few people up at ours. We've got a spare room with a double and a lounge complete with sofa and floors.

I think they should spice it up further with hostage taking and perhaps paint nukes where you never actually set them off (except somewhere remote as a show of strength), you just have to escalate tensions and then eventually sign a disarmament agreement.

Turns out people will actually come and take away all the useless shit you're set on taking to the dump. Saves me a journey! :D

You can get a local bus there straight from Brum airport, aye? That could be very do-able for me.

I'm pretty sure you can yeah. I a train would probably be quicker though, there is one every hour that goes via Coventry. Takes about 20 minutes. Just don't accidentally get off.

Our first day in the swanky new office, toasted with champagne and croissants. The loos are nice as well, but they're sensor-flush and it flushed when I was still sat down...

No more than normal!

Forgot to mention there's a pool table and Xbox but fuck knows how anyone will find the time to have a serious game on either.

Should also mention the office view is amazing. You can see as far as Totterdown pretty much. Looks great when the sun sets. Most importantly, we're still bang in the centre so I can nip out to anywhere I want for lunch. God dammit, so many great places. And St Nicholas' fucking market.

Just been to see Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds courtesy of my friend who's done the Video for the show. I didn't really give a toss about the acting but seeing the whole score live with Jeff conducting was truly special :)

I'm actually really jealous, that album is one of my all time favourites and I never have seen it live.
