One more day!

Ah, Friday tomorrow. At last! Let the drudgery of work and sorting other peoples mess be over for a blissful two days of freedom.

Today has been one of finding out just how little other people have been doing. I won't gripe too much, but enough said that it's tantamount to sod all. That noted, it will be imense fun sorting it all out. Have been coordinating meetings and issuing orders all day, which is always amusing, especially when 40 year old men don't even argue, but just agree and get on with it!

Socially there's been a bit of a turn up for the books. Have managed to sort out all the pick up times for Saturdays road trip and the final two members of the gang have got their act together and booked train tickets. It'll be the first time we've all been together since Christmas, so should be a truely epic weekend. This does of course raise all sorts of questions about what to do with the beard. To keep it or not to keep it. Those with internet access (so thats basically everyone reading this, DUH!) check my MSN photo and let me know... (Oh god I can hear the comments now!)

Plastering has been confirmed for 1500 tomorrow. So half days have been taken by the relevant parties and it'll finally be done and out of the way, only some 6 months after the inception of the project! This does however mean that I have to spend the next two hours moving furniture with Paul to facilitate the access for the operatives (we're not allowed to say workmen anymore).

Have been looking into ski holidays for next year, way ahead I know, but if you want the best on a budget it's what you've got to do. Contemplating a trip to Utah, expensive, but do-able for 10 days, which would be superb, just the only others who I know can afford it are all above 40! Not that they're a bad bunch, it's just I like my nightlife to go on past 10pm. The other option is the same place as this year, but with a bigger group. This is the cheaper option and I know a few people who might be interested... Though, if I stick to my budget and forgo a summer holiday, I could do both... Watch this space!

There'll probably be a post tomorrow, but then nothing all weekend. I'm not computer savvy enough to post from elsewhere and I'll wage a safe bet that I'm likely to be either too drunk to, too hungover to, or busy driving anyway. Till tomorrow kids ;-)

The beard goes on Wednesday night, it has lost its comedy value now.

We all know you go to the Russian porn sites, how else will you order your wife?

And on pulling the trigger, celebrate, you're not dead, well done!
