This was a triumph. I'm making a note here: GREAT SUCCESS!

Operation: Pub Lunch Mk.2 was executed flawlessly, along with going round town and to a freinds to watch films after. :)

9am start tomorrow.




Finishing 9pm then back at work at 7am which is a normal Tuesday into Wednesday takes the wind out of my sails. Also, Alton fucking Towers on Thurs.

Spicy chilli sauce is spicy.

This may strike many as unsuprising, but often chilli sauce is a pile of wank.

Agreed. I find that a lot of the time, spicy anything is disappointing as fuck. Took me a hell of a long time to find some 'spicy' southern fried chicken that I'd actually class as properly spicy.

I had the same problem. Got some stuff from the local shop, and was so used to spicy stuff being shit that I put half the packet into the curry I was making. Ended up so spicy that it made my gums bleed. :ugh:
I greatly enjoyed the reference, Joe.

I've been wanting to go to venice for ages, but it's hard to convince people to go with me when it's a choice between canals or some random place with cheap booze. Also everybody is poor and it's supposed to be expencive as hell or something.

I didnt like the place at all, but its all dependent on what you look for. The campsite we were in, was well odd. We had a situation where one side, we had 4 Swedish guys next to us with an abundance of booze (over 2 pints), oh and the camping ground was a euro a night which wasnt to be fucked with (two plus points of Venice), only to get wiped out by the unisex showers. Id been at a week long festival in Slovenia, I needed at least 30 minutes peace and quiet? What did I get, loads of noisy French girls shouting their fucking retarded language at each other, which made me want to bail.


...or as it transpires in June 2009, invade Strasbourg.



This picture: Taken in Venice just about sums mine and my Polish friend Ralf's impression of Venice.

Unfortunately: This is the best thing that can be seen from Italy.

We do everything on a shoe string, so im thinking minimal. We're flying to Slovenia, questing the capital city for a day, then off to Croatia by bus or train. Then returning to Slovenia for Metal Camp, and im trying to twist his arm to go and visit Zagreb so I can add that to my growing clientelle of unnecessary travelling bullshit, that I can boast to my friends when they're stuck in somewhere badly cunt like Greece or Spain.
