I am officially a huge retard!
(ok thats no surprise to anyone that knows me)

I booked a hotel room at the northbound a38 travelodge for the fri - sun ages ago as I wasn't sure I'd be able to travel on the thursday. as soon as I discovered I could go on thursday I went back and booked the extra night.

Just been online to print out confirmations etc and have realised that I booked the extra night at the Southbound travelodge not the northbound one and because I got a special cheap rate it's non transferable.

As a result we now have to check in Thursday night check out first thing Friday Morning get a taxi to northbound beg to leave our bags there get taxi to boa then get back to hotel in time to check in at night.

My missus is really really pissed off with me .

oops

Called Peckhams today to enquire about availability and prices. The posh chap told me they had it in stock, so I asked how much it would be for 3 slabs (there's 3 of us wanting it) and he was quite taken aback. He explained it was only sold in 4's so I asked him to work out a per-slab price.

£31.32 and thats including a 10% discount thrown in for good measure! Deary me, I'm not that desperate.

Today the maiden faces an almighty quest- to photocopy the sacred parchments of the pink paper.

She starts the journey cautiously. She approaches the first photocopier dragon, all goes well until the beast runs out of ink. Ahhh but the maiden is not yet defeated she knows that around the corner lies another beast. She again fills it's belly with the pink paper, the beast does not like this. It spits it out with an almighty roar "Paper jam" it screams, beeping until the maiden removes the paper from it's almighty belly. Covered with the ink of the last battle she continues. She will complete her quest, she will.
Onto the next beast. It is all quiet, she approaches with caution awakening the beast with its "on" button she again tries to copy her work. Now this beast is clever, he lolls her into a false sense of security. 10 copies later the maiden's confidence builds, she feels that she has won. She tries to copy the next scroll, then suddenly the photocopier beast roars again "mwa ha ha" it silently mocks. "You think you can defeat me. I will jam, like I have never jammed before".
Furious the maiden get's on her knees, rips open the beasts belly and removes the pink paper. Damn you beast she screams.

But alas she is not defeated. She still has work to be done, her quest must be completed.
The final photocopier-beast lies there. This time she is ready for battle.
She loads his belly and copies.
10 done.
Next batch.
10 down.
Next batch.
Then suddenly....noooooooooooo jammed again.
With fury she removed the parchment. She will not be defeated this time, she is so close. She is stubborn.
She reloads and continues her war.
Finally all is done.
She had triumph over the photocopier beasts, sworn the stop her work, her import monitoring role.
She emerges from battle covered in the ink from her previous challengers, ready for the nest battle, for she knows than soon enough she will need to again use the beasts of the photocopier.

Until next time..................

Double what I pay at Makro then? Fuck that. Can buy SINGLE bottle from Johnnyocks but at £1.89 a pop, *quick maths* im not paying £45.36 for 24 bottles. Will have to go live in Germany I think..
Was very sick last night and got sent home from work today. I refuse to be ill for bloodstock though.
