Birthday Plans

So next Monday is my birthday.

During the day I'm going to do a speed circle line pub crawl on my own to celebrate the 5th anniversary of when I did it on pints.

In the evening I will need more beer and the company of others.

So If you want to celebrate my birthday with me or my doing a circle line pub crawl join me in Cask from about 18:00

Leaking

Currently at [personal profile] jhaelan's house in Singapore abusing his bandwidth. Flying on to Kuala Lumpar tomorrow morning. I have changed my plans slightly and will now skip Bangkok after Ho Chi Minh City because of the flooding and what follows after the cut.

After the medical stuff I went and watched some of the singapore sevens at the singapore cricket club. Then went for chilli crab with [personal profile] jhaelan

We then went toa MindCafe where [personal profile] jhaelan beat me twice at scrabble even though in one game I had a 7 letter word. I blame the drugs :)

I escaped australia just in time

My flight was at 05:50 GMT :) Possibly the last Qantas flight to leave Sydney.

So we made it Singapore which was fine for me since thats where I wanted to be.

Other people on the plane were going on to frankfurt or indeed connecting to elsewhere. must suck for them.
I dont need a Qantas flight until Nov 30th so I might be okay and from Hong Kong there are probably several options back to london.

Admittedly my stop in Bangkok might be at risk for other reasons anyway.

technology fail :(

So I cracked the screen the on replacement n900 the other day so cant keep my flickr stream up to date as i was. I have bought a new camera so the pictures when i upload them might actually be better now. Although given how annoying the power supply and battery are on this laptop I dont know if i can be bothered. I may have sorted out one of my spare phones to do uploads but its a lot more annoying as well.


For the same reason im not updating twitter as much at the moment but I sorted that out this morning by setting up my spare phones in the right combination. So i might be posing more random crap there soon. mostly about beer i suspect.

If anything the lack of connectivity is preparing me for when I start the last leg on my tour in south east asia where i wont be able to justify getting pay as you go sims with data. Since i wont be anywhere long enough.

And were Off! - Sabbatical day 9.

After about 5 hours sleep I get up to get ready for my cab to heathrow at 07:45. The cab turns up promptly and I make it to heathrow with plenty of time to spare. So had breakfast at Plane Food which fine if not a little pricey. Spent some money in the Nokia store to get a few bits and bobs.

On the plane I ended up having two seats to myself which is always good. I should really remember to ask for vegan meals in future given my probable lactose intolerance. Although I suspect BA do that as an option anyway.

I watched most of 3 films. Thor was enjoyable. Fast Five was enjoyably ludicrous. Sucker punch was interesting with some great fight scenes although im not that upset I missed the ending due to us landing.

To get to my hotel I decided to take a bus to South Station. The bus was confused though at one point it converted to overhead electrics instead of a normal engine and then it went in its own tunnel like it wanted to be tube. There were no longer bus stops but stations.

Once I got to South Station I got confused and it was raining so I got a cab to my hostel.


My hostel is fine if not a little basic. There is free wifi though.

After attempting a nap I decieded to go on a flaneur and see where I ended up.

I ended up at Fenway Park where I queued for game day tickets for about 2 hours and got in.

So I saw the Red Sox beat the Yankees at Fenway Park from a pretty good seat although it did go to extra an inning so by the time I had walked back to my hostel I had been up for 24 hours. Thankfully caffiene now has an effect on me so the Dr Pepper and Coke I had drunk during the day kept me awake.
