Dunc's visit from Germany

Obviously we would not be alone in our outing to the pub, so phones had to be rung, messages left and arrangements arranged. Barzooka would be the venue for the night, well until we had to leave (closing time arrived far too quickly) and find another drinking establishment.

So we the merry men (and woman) made merry for the evening, for many of us had not seen each other for quite some time. Tales were told, no songs sung, but merryment made non the less.

Attendee's for the evening went as follows. Woody, Lee, Stu D, Tony, Pete, Dunc and Sonia (merry woman as previously indicated).

After leaving Barzooka, more beer needed to be found and a second place of beer selling required. The Napier still has signs of life on this cold Thursday evening, so we the very merrymen and woman entered by the back door (ooer) and took refuge by the bar, for it was karaoke night. Fortunately none of us had the urge to make fools of ourselves any further, and so we drunk our final drinks, made our goodbyes and went our not so separate ways.

Seeing that I had work the next day, and my head would probably be of the banging kind, I decided that I would throw a sickie, and ring in feigning illness.

Following that, January remained relatively uneventful. So thats it for January.

New Beginnings

New year, new beginning, new starts and time for a change. Or so they say, what does the new year bring, nothing new, same old same old. An arbitrary date for an arbitrary year. Mr Gregorian has a lot to answer for.

Time is constant, unyealding inflexible and always in constant motion, forward. So not one for making resolutions, a kind of promise is made to myself, that being to get out more and stop vegging infront of the TV watching endless episodes of old sci-fi series.

So it was a nice surprise to have a message on my answering machine from Dunc, telling me he was over for a week from Germany, and was wanting to go out for beers.

New years eve 2007

This new years eve was a quiet affair, as I could not be bothered to go anywere, bumped into my neighbours and observed a small fire that somebody had kindy lit in the road.
