60p per mile if you have 3 passengers ;)

Work xmas dinner tomorrow. Coupla quid left in my pot as well that I can put toward a drink. Glad I have to go to Manc the following day so I can't stick around and get shattered and embarrass myself and/or see others embarrass themselves.

OK so the last Insomnia I did last August was nowhere near as good as this one. Everyone around me are sound. The games I have are brilliant (so far) not completed anything just yet, the venue is cooler (temp), more space, and overall better. Sure there are some piss poor human specimens here with absolutely zero life skills but otherwise really enjoyed it and only 2 days in. Tomorrow Sunday and Monday to go. Bit pissed off I missed a trick, beers are like £5 a go at the bar but if I order online over their food to the table menu, I get 4 cans for £8. Had some beers today, loaded all the empties on top of the Turbostation 1.

This is precisely why I drive an Insignia. The handbook said 88mpg on extra-urban, realistically it's more like 75mpg but that's still phenomenal for a 2ltr 140bhp 1.5 tonne car with cruise control set to 70mph. When necessary driving for work is very profitable for me, the further the better.
I used to have a link to a social networking site here but these days you all probably already know who I am.

Played a fantastic gig last night supporting Hate and Noctem, really cool guys. Anyway the set went really well and a couple people bought a ticket just to see us and left after we got off stage which is definitely a new and very flattering experience (although not one I really understand haha). Then we spent the night getting suitably smashed and now here we are.

I'm trying to see if anyone wants to go see it. Was gonna go with Jenkins and his missus but he messaged me on Tuesday suddenly realising he had a free window at midday but he didn't realise I was at work. Others have fancied the idea but I can see them not committing or making other plans to see it.

If I end up going my tod like a loser I'm debating whether to go check out the tiny cinema in Westbury or pay out the arse for the whole 3D shebang in Showcase like I did with Force Awakens so I can compare the two on even grounds and make use of the glasses I bought and have only used once.

Good point. Nonetheless I have pitched the idea of going with my dad to see it at the Vue in Farnborough that opened a coupla years ago, just so I can see what it's like in there. I dunno why it bothered me that the idea of having one in Farnborough was delayed for like 15 years, not like a cinema stops a town being shit.

Same here, but I think I fall into the Anti-Social category myself and can't be arsed with the hassle interacting with others can cause at times :lol:

Quite pleased my secret santa gift from work actually had effort and thought put into it, was expecting to be given some cheap naff from poundland or somewhere :lol:
