The drunken entry

Well.. not that drunk actually.... when out for a drink with savs, iDunno, chicago, and a few others who don't have accounts here... trouble is a lot of them had been drinking since lunch time, and went home, so i actually only got two drinks in. Poo.

Anyway, now sitting at home doing this, ircing on tsw, and playing on puzzle bobble with jo and mark.


Happy 21st Birthday iDunno!

so, had a really shitty day today, life-wise... just about working out what a total fuckup i've really made of bits of it.

work is better than that - learning more stuff about postgres etc. I expect i'll be ok in a day or two anyway..

Hrm... Got a quote for fixing the hole - £545 - don't know how good or bad that is, so i guess i'll get a few more quotes before deciding.


Had some days off work, with Jo and went to London for a couple of days. Saw cats, the musical - was stunning - can't believe it closes in the west end and on broadway in eleven days - catch it if you can. Had food at a great pub near there.
After a stop over in a travellodge (not adventurous, but at least we knew what we were getting) we had food at bagelmania - how good is that place? Hot chocolate was more hot than chocolate tho...
We met up with an old friend of Jo's and his gf, and went for drinks and food in a mexican eatery in leicester square, whose name escapes me now.. nice cocktails tho.. Update: savs reckons it's called "chiquitas"... cheers matey.
BBQ at the parental being's this evening, which should be good..

Yay!!! Got the dreaded Vigor/Westell hardware combination working - turns out my wire was too long (oo-er).

Worked out postgresql (Well, enough to get going on the project, anyway. Now looking at the perl DBI, which looks very funky.
