Spent about 10 hours this week sorting this update out. Friends, Forums, Xbox Shenanigans, Poker, Potentially Danny Boyle, Dolls, Niteflights and Halloween. Busy times indeed.
I would have done this update a week ago but i ended up starting work on the Friends Page It is still needs finishing but the layout is there at least, plus Troy is added so that will shut him up.
Another thing that got in the way of this update is the Booshambles Forum. I spent a good 8 hours this week tweaking it, fixing bugs and adding features to it. Sign up to it now! Really want to get it going as a place to organise Xbox 360 nights in advance as well as posting bit of news and stuff. Need to find away of integrating posts or content in to the rest of the website but there is no rush.
So the ongoing saga of my xbox is finally over, i got it back a few days after the last update but the graphics were messed up, so after some persuasion i got them to send out another one. This one is working at least and isn’t too old so should be good now. Just waiting for the Modern Warefare 2 one to come out so i can have my old setup again.
I went to Rob’s house to play poker, last time i played actual poker was about 4 years earlier in Lancaster. This time it was for money a nice little pot of £30 quid. Rob and Jonty bought back in so the pot went to a lofty £40. Me and Troy were the last 2 standing and he eventually beat me so i got the second place £15. Really enjoyed it and winning something was a bonus hope to do it again sometime.
So on the 23rd me and Carl went to the “Blue Peter Badge Winner’s Get in Free” night at The Yorkshire House in Lancaster. I only went to see Niteflights because i used to work with the lead singer Sam at Lakeland. It was a great night and the open mic element at the start was mostly good except for some poor standup and this:
I thought i was dreaming it was just bizarre. A woman dressed up as a doll. Other than that it was a great night. Niteflights were superb, they all play several instruments and each song they moved round like musical chairs it was very cool.
To end the night we were driving out of the car park and saw a rolls royce with “BAF7A” plate. The security chap thought it was “The slumdog millionaire guy” unless Dev Patel is driving around in that i think he was referring to Danny Boyle. Danny let us know.
Last night was Halloween and went round to Chris’s for some Trick or Treat action, it basically involved eating pizza and watching The Departed, wasn’t a scary movie but a bloody good one. Good times.
Well until i press “add new entry” i won’t know how big this update actually is. One odd thing to pad this update out though is that everyday this week (3 days) i have been at work at the same spot someone has driven past me and asked me for directions. Just thought i would say that cos it’s odd.
Sign up to the forum go go go.. i will leave you with RJD2 and the Work It Out Video, so good.
