So SInce last I posted
  • Bad news, my grandfather died. The funeral is this weekend. I was never that close to him. I just now worry what the aunts and uncles will be like towards their brother, my dad, now he has past. My dad now has the family home (his by inheritance from his grandfather but kept by my grandmother as she was the trustee). No one like this situation, even though my dad could not have altered it. I wonder what will happen now to my grandmother. Does she even know her husband is dead? She is currently in a home and is not all there.
  • Roleplay has been going well, if a little slow due to Xmas. But all in all the game is shaping up to be better than when I first ran it 3 years back.
  • Headed up to Manchester just before Xmas. Was great to see Stacey and Alan and Daniel (Sam's brother) and of course to see Sam's mum. Xmas presents were exchanged and much merriment was had. Got a t-shirt with Soundwave on it from Sam, and also from her a new wallet (damn I needed one for so long), fleur de lys cufflinks. From Barbara I got Season 1 of 'How I met your Mother', and the Bro Code (a book written by one of the program's characters). Add to that some money and I was able to get new plastik wrap trousers!
  • Had epic pizza at Olive Press in Manchester.
  • NYE was spent back in Herefordshire, down in Logaston where at the new house. It was fucking freezing in the place. I had the cold of death hit me the night before we left Leam, so spent most of Xmas dowing cold medicine, blowing my nose (leading to unpleasant/worrying bleeding and coughing up blood!), and basically eating food while looking at Book of the Dead for nWoD. I also got off mum some nice new Issey Miyake aftershave, a book on Non-Christian Xmas. Sam got a apron and book on baking off my mum (which we have put to good use already) and from Zoe some makeup. Xmas with my family is never epic but it's just nice. We ate turkey and pheasant on NYE but the pheasant was not gamey enough, as my dad pointed out that they had been hung up for a few days but the cold had stop them from maturing.
  • Since NYE we have watched it snow lots, baked cookies, written rpg stuff, and now Sam has won her self a nice new job at the Uni!
  • Oh and I bleached my hair last night. Almost all the red has come out. It looks somewhat flame like.

Needs another bleaching

An Update

Shite, it's been a month since the last blog post that hasn;t been videos or cats or both.

Since Halloween has been a Masquerade ball theme club night which was a good chance to wear my Venitian mask. [profile] glittersavvy of course looked amazing. The next day we braved the Trafford centre.

The weekend after was some Xmas markets meandering, the madnees of not being able to sleep at night and having to play the Nightmare before Xmas soundtrack to maintain any form of coherent thought.

For Viki's birthday was of course drinking and going to TV21, plus Rockworld.

My god that place really has now gone down hill. It's like a school disco that stinks of bleach.

The weekend after that was a trip to Hadfield and then onto Stockport for a photoshoot with [profile] glittersavvy by her friend. I've seen a few so far but there are some to come soon. Let's just say it was all very goth and that I didn't feel like a local while eating at the local cafe in Hadfield.

We then went to go and see Beowulf which is best to see in 3D at the IMAX.

The following weekend was spent at [profile] glittersavvy's and we went to see the Snow QUeen ballet. It was quite an amazing show, and fortunately having seen it as a play I was able to see through the dance to the story they were depicting. It was great though. Quite a first for me. Of course [profile] glittersavvy sums up the ballet far better than I do.

This weekend saw us mong out at mine watching some of the usual tripe on TV, then yesterday going out for food at Thai Banana after both the skiing and laser quest plans fell through as part of Zoe's birthday plans. Later was roleplay and typical madness.

This morning [profile] glittersavvy nursed me awake with coffee and then it was off to see the Golden Compass, which was pretty cool and pretty to watch.

It's now not long until I head home for xmas and [profile] glittersavvy is going with me to meet my parents etc.
