I met Jordan, cat_race and aboynamedgoo yesterday. Great bunch of lads.
Feeling slightly delicate because I didn't really stop drinking yesterday. Lovely times.
Just had a massive fry up. Deciding what to do next.
planning to do all my christmas shopping today. no idea what to buy anyone.
might just watch the snooker instead.
Which was surprisingly tasty
Popping out for coffee now then gonna make a roast dinner for boyf to thank him for looking after me this weekend
A REAL GODDAM SAINT
I'm going to do the same thing today.
"The Christmas Adventure".

What really stands out (from me being a dutch hobbyist with a little tournament/battle experience) is the easy way you guys work out your dice-rolling and wound allocation. With a very casual ease and stress-less way to keep everything very enjoyable.
Watched quite a bit of that but for the life of me cannot work out how it's played, and I'm curious, can you give me a quick rundown?
You make your army (you need a hero for every 12 troops) to an agreed points level (each model is worth points depending how good it is)
Each side gets to move (you roll a dice each turn and highest goes first in each phase)
Then each side gets to shoot
Then any models in base contact fight
Then you do it again
Theres loads of little rules like going out of order, magic, heroic moves but thats the jist of it!
and my heroes and troops are cheap because theyre so rubbish. BUT dice games are all about rolling as many dice as you can, so elite armies dont do too well usually unless you get a bit of luck. The guy in the video is the best player in the country (theres an offical league) and he usually smashes me up!
And where are you in the official league?
Also, the second best player in the league only uses a 4 model army! So lack of troops isnt always terrible!
This cuts deep
to see LC! tonight. Yay. Won two competitions mid-week to see Hidden Orchestra and Slow Club, and saw Braids on Wed, so it's been quite a succesful week! SC were great; even played some of their xmas songs too. Today will be spent shuffling around until I can be bothered to get dressed.
Got through two bottles of red last night in the name of Christmas. My brain hurts and I need to go and find some breakfast.
I've gone from finding it hilarious to being quite worried.
plasticniki and aboynamedgoo are proper sound, as is Jordan. After that I kissed a girl but there was no explosion. Meh
The flat smells of Christmas <3
definitely going to throw up.
went to smokehouse again, lovely brisket. lovely port. met cat_race, adybongo and a non-DiS friend at different points.
today ive gone to the gym, been to a craft fair, watch footy then done some housework. decent weekend.
but I can't remember what. so I'm watching snooker.
how occasionally I am a wicked charming dude.
It's too inconsistent
I gained an insight into the whole idea that the criminal always returns to the scene of the crime.
Expanding my mind
oh well. Watching Robin Hood now. <3 Costner.
Housemates girlfriend is moving out of the place she has live with for many years with loads if people. They have just left all the stuff none of them wanted so we went and took it all (with permission). No van though so was running around clapton with desks and cabinets and beds.
Currently falling asleep in a pub.
(2) but otherwise feel surprisingly ok.
Right forefinger and the one next to my wee toe on my left foot. Smarting a bit but otherwise intact!
I would hate to break my pinkie :(
of actually doing very little other than eating pie and hanging out. Brill.
Mikey got put to sleep yesterday (one of my all time dogs). Nobody told me because I was away. I sad now.
sorry, hope you're ok. Pets dying is so horrible.
He was my cousin's, but I loved him so much. I nearly killed him by mistake when he was a pup because I was careless with my bag and he got half a bar of galaxy. Argh, it's so shit.
Been really good so far, went for a pub crawl in Highgate with some friends yesterday and then to a house party, and played football today. Currently having a casual Sunday evening glass or two of red.
Going to Borough Market and the Tate tomorrow afternoon (possibly a date thing), and then I'm only seeing bloody Los Campesinos! in the evening aren't I? Pretty fucking excited.
there's no gas on the meter, only 54p of electricity on the other meter, nobody's done any washing up, and i had to wipe a load of piss off the toilet seat. i hate living here. can i go back to my girlfriend's nice, warm, cat-inhabited flat now pls?
but I did just watch Chronicle, which i thought was excellent. WALLLAAACEEEE is such a great actor.
Now I'm lying awake in bed dreading going to work tomorrow.
