A Fun Night Out

On Friday a bunch of us went up to Vodka Revolution after work for a few drinks. OK more than a few!

Unfortunately I hadn’t had any lunch, and we weren’t planning to eat at the bar, so the alcohol went to my head pretty quickly. I don’t actually remember how many pints I had, but it was probably in the region of 8.

We spent a few hours in the bar downstairs, then went upstairs to the nightclub and I continued drinking and danced a little. I probably had 5 pints downstairs and maybe 3 upstairs. It might be as many as 9. I really don’t have any idea.

Somehow I managed to leave Vodka Revolution at 11pm and get across the main road to Sutton station to catch my train home, which I did. I had a very drunken phone call with my girlfriend, then for some unknown reason I got off the train at West Croydon. Maybe I felt sick all of a sudden.

I staggered the short distance from West Croydon station over to East Croydon so I could get home. As soon as I got to the platform I needed, I threw up, just as my train pulled in. I was too busy being sick to get it, but luckily there was another coming behind it a few minutes later.

A little while later I got to Gatwick, and crawled into a taxi. I got the driver to stop a short way from home cos I just needed to get out. Pretty much as soon as I had, I threw up again.

Finally, I got home! I grabbed a glass of water and a bowl and went straight to bed. I spent most of the next day in bed trying to recover from my god awful hangover.

It’s been a looooooong time since I got that drunk!

Read more to see a few pictures I took during the evening.

Short Range FM Transmitters Legal At Last!

As reported by El Reg, and a host of other tech sites, FM transmitters for your MP3 players are now legal in the UK as long as they carry a CE mark. I own a Belkin TuneCast II, hopefully it carries a CE mark or it’ll still be illegal!

The legislation banning them had been in place at least 57 years, technology has moved on a tad since 1949 when the Wireless Telegraphy Act was signed into law.

Christmas Decorations At Work

Last week we had some fun making our own multi-coloured paper-chains to hang from the ceiling and snowflakes for the windows. We also put up some fairy lights along the window frame.

Nokia N70 Test

This is a test post from my new phone

Apologies for this entry appearing 4 times before. Lifeblog was showing me a 500 error on the phone so I tried posting again. Apparently it was actually posting each time! I’m pretty sure the problem was caused by one of the services my blog used to ping was timing out. Hopefully that won’t happen again.
