An early start today as it’s Hat day and there are several people I may be meeting here through the day. I came down on a too hot Overground train and got in just before the Auction and have set up in the usual place!
Today’s excursion started out with a Schneider Weiss (Tap 4) and oddly, the same base camp as yesterday. However, today I has a Loufing with me, who’s starting out with a Spezial Hell. Unfortunately though, the F key on my keyboard is broken, so this could (read will) make life a bit awkward later.
After wandering around with some burgers, of which mine was Ostrich, and Loufing’s was Kangaroo, we found some more beer. I had Ballard’s Wassail and Lou had a Dorking Gold which she found rather bland. Lou wanted something from the Chilterns though so a Chiltern White was her next, while I, after a couple of false starts I got a Rebellion Silly Point. A rather ordinary, though perfectly drinkable tipple.
Following this, I tried both a Captain Gingerbread from Geeves and an Opat Apricot which was gorgeous… These were a little rushed as we were heading home, and hence a short post…
However, more to come.
On Sunday this week, I realised that I only had enough medication left for about half a week. This is something of an exaggeration since I take several kinds of medication per day and only one of them had run out, but since it’s pretty much the most important one, it needed urgent fixing. So on Monday morning, I headed out to the pharmacist to see if my replacements had arrived. I was told no, but that they’d been ordered and should be in within a day or so. This would be fine if it happened, and so I was off on my second mission of the morning… the Doctor’s Office. (more…)
Today marks the start of this year’s Great British Beer Festival (GBBF) at London Olympia, and for reasons I’ll let you work out for yourselves, I am there sampling a few choice brews from around the UK and it’s neighbour, the Rest of The World™.
but I didn’t… 🙁
I was playing Star Trek Online and running through a Foundry mission Once Upon A Time – Part III, and encountered my first Borg Cube of the mission. I opened fire and 2-3 seconds later I get a pop-up with my Tac Officer telling me we’ve done enough damage to the cube to force it to regenerate, but that to finish it off we’d have to beam over…
Meanwhile, behind the popup, two approximately half cubes float off the screen in opposite directions, spewing green plasma and debris… On closing the window, a crippled cube spawns where the old one was. You gotta love scripted fights…
