Dad has arrived save and sound. We had a bit of a piss up in his hotel but tomorrow the glorious Mannheim, a curry and perhaps a decent football game in the Irish pub.

Was given a bottle of champagne from my manager for last night's restaurant service. It was my first one, and I was completely in charge of front of house. Tonight; another event, but for once I'll eventually get to join in :3

Bought a load of gear for decorating the downstairs bathroom. Finally getting started decorating the new house. :D

Had a great party last night for a mate's birthday, starting with a meal at a pub round the corner from me, which I don't actually go to enough considering its location and gorgeous bar staff. Fuck loads of shots poured over me at various intervals, which explains how much I was suffering today. Then tomorrow going to do a very necessary half-day of overtime at work followed by what I hope should be a more productive gym sesh than normal owing to it being a Sunday.

I just did a ribeye steak with a sticky soy, ginger and garlic marinade. Shit was awesome.

£6.50 a can?! Wow, people are going to love those kind of prices come World Cup 2022!


Yup - its going to be an interesting clash of cultures. They're talking about drinking zones near to the stadiums. There has to be some as Budweiser is a major sponser, and FIFA got a temporary lifting of alcohol bans in Brazilian stadia, so will no doubt be a condition, but gangs of blokes roaming the cities looking for beer and a fairly 'robust' police department could mean trouble. This week, groups were leafleting ex-pats about their dress and trying to re-enforce modesty values aswell, claiming some success in hounding westerners out of the buildings until they change.

I spent 40 seconds browsing through the index and the Arms before I realised and said out loud "Oh, the forum's back"

WMMH: The downstairs toilet is no longer magnolia. It looks really fucking sweet. :D

As of a week ago, I am no longer alcohol free.

I am, however, a true wine wanker.

I'm mildly amused at the thought of a shocking pink toilet bowl.
If it sounds good, listen to it

I know of someone at uni who lost his deposit because he emulsioned the toilet black. You can figure how well that went. So he drained it and went back over it with gloss.

... he painted a toilet with black emulsion then went over it with a gloss?

Why bother, he already lost his deposit!
