    A friend of mine gave me a trip to Amsterdam as a birthday present.

    And so, here I am. It's really really nice, you know?

    Saw Hugh Laurie and his Copper Bottom Band last night. Fucking incredible.

    Heh. Went to a six course beer pairing dinner and hung out with some of my favourite beer writers. By the end we were all a little bit tipsy and ordered a dubbel served in these MASSIVE and incredibly heavy chalices. (think I posted me with one in the SPIT thread) and we gave what has to be my favourite toast among friends.


    We did this several times throughout the night, laughing as loud as we could.

    On opening my CAVE this morning, I was hit by a dreadful stench of damp and mould. The ceiling is furry and black. Given that we're apparently in the path of an 80mph storm tomorrow, I finally resolved to fix it properly (well, fix it to the highest degree that would be possible in today's daylight).

    So that half of the roof's been covered with exterior ply and 15 year bitumen felt. I have enough felt to do the other half too in the spring. About to get the dettol and nuke the mould then I'll cover the damaged ceiling with ply and paint it.

    Fuck it, been putting that off for far too long...

    My game finally came out on the App Store this week. It's not going to sell massively, but that was never the point of the exercise. I needed to go through all the steps to get something built and released on a platform I had no experience on in order to try and regain the confidence I lost being made redundant last year.

    (It's called Spindle Spell for those with iOS 6 who want to take a look at it…)

    Being made redundant from a company that is still trading strongly feels quite different to when you know they've had to do it to stay afloat, and it made me think that I was basically as crappy at my job as my inner voice had always told me I was.

    So I'm over that now, and I can perhaps make a game with ambition now…

    I think this is a good thread for this, because: THE GINJA HAS LANDED WITH THE HANDLER, PIRATEMOON. The counterparts Vornaskotti and taphead have been contacted. There will be culture. There will be cooking.

    Argos! Okaeri!! I require photos and extensive lectures on your experience!

    Slept a fuckload today. Didn't realize that's what was missing from my life (since I normally hate sleep but at long last I'm trying to get over that). But giving in felt niiiice.
