Bank Holiday Weekend

Here you go readers something I did a while back. Its been a real reserved bank holiday weekend for me, no stag nights in Blackpool or tackling Astra slides in woodlands dodging hungry squirrels after nuts. No cycling across scenic landscape in America. Just a bike ride across South Yorkshire  saturday afternoon; plus some doodling and hours spent on the laptop.

Yes I've digested  the new Indiana Jones movie it was great loved it. You cannot beat an adventure with Dr Jones complete with fedora, whip and the one lines. Plus the action.
Next cinema trip I think will be to watch the Kung Fu Panda.

Take It

Readers Ive digested Moby's new album "Last Night" this afternoon, I'm loving the track "I love to move in here" never thought Id say that about another Moby track. The album Play got overkilled; I loved that album when it first came out years back, but this new material is a return to form "it even smells good" I'll agree with you Pete Tong on that score the cover wins points with me too. This Thursday the 22nd of May Im on a field trip to Durham for the day.

Master Say?

Birthday Interpreted

Today readers I was presented with a book "Birthdays Interpreted", which I felt compelled to read the section on december the 15th my birthday, it read: Character. Seductive and a little extreme, you certainly like the good things in life. You are a born flirt with a tangible charisma that attracts both men and women. You enjoy living life to excess, particularly when it comes to loving and partying. You have great natural rhythm and know how to strut your stuff. There is something of the Peter Pan about you. You have no intention of ever growing up and tend to dress in the latest styles with a splash of unique jewelry.... it also listed my colour is Pink. Key features affable,gregarious, likable. Naturally good at making others feel comfortable?? Those that know me well does this read like me answers on a postcard to the usual address or email me on a slack evening on a break from Grand theft Auto.

Back Home

Aye up readers I've had three fantastic days in Manchester and Salford. Andy Golpys has handed in a funny humourous upbeat video for his module at uni which made me chuckle. I ate some micro fish and chips without gravy I passed on burger and chips. I got to do a pub quiz with Dan, Guardian reader Paul and Fliss, readers we were in second place. At almost,almost 29 and half I've learnt over the last few days to think before speaking and listen. But seriously I had three great days which made me laugh.
