Christmas Meal and general tidbits

Christmas Meal
Well, we finally had our works Christmas Meal this evening. It was at a very nice Italian restuarant close to Tally Ho corner in North Finchley. Everyone made it (apart from keyvan who had his Unlce arriving today) and much fun was had. Drank a bit too much wine though - naughty me.

I can honestly say that I really enjoy working and socialising with my collegues. They are a great bunch of people and I hope I remain in touch with them long after they depart into other jobs and leave me slaving away behind them.

Bonus point: Great company; good food.
Minus point: Misplaced my mobile. I think I left it at the restaurant so have to remember to check tomorrow. Damn too much wine ;-p

Postcard from my Sis!

Genevieve (sister #3) sent me and the house a postcard from Austria today. Sounds like she's having much fun. She's gone to Austria (first time out of the country since she was too young to remember!) to work at a ski-resort. I think she's back in about three/four weeks time. It was good to hear from her.

More SLA Artwork!

Clint sent through the remainder of the artwork for Cannibal Sector One and it looks fantastic. Clint (whose work can be seen by the masses in 2000AD on the Slaine strip most recently) has provided us with the front and back covers and seven internal pieces. Alongside Dave's amazing artwork and Grim's fantastic writing Cannibal Sector One is really, really going to kick some butt. I've been gaming for twenty years and I can honestly, and unbiasedly, say that Cannibal Sector One has some of the best artwork that has ever EVER graced a RPG. You'll see what I mean when it hits the shelves and get a sneak peek when the Cubicle 7 website goes live.

Loves Lost & Won

I've been told I should start looking for a girlfriend. I've managed to stay fairly clear of the whole partner malarky for a good 18 months now since Delphine moved back to France. Other people seem more concerned about this than I do. Folks - I'm currently still happy being single and am VERY happy to wait until the right lady for me comes along. This is the longest time I've ever been without a girlfriend since I was probably 17/18 and I'm quite enjoying it. I've also been blessed by some of the most amazing girlfriends anyone could hope for so I reckon I'm due some 'barren' periods to make up for it. I've never "gone on the pull" in my entire life and don't see me starting now. It's just not me. Sooner or later I'll meet someone or be surprised by someone. PEOPLE STOP PANICKING ABOUT ME!!! I should be the one worried about my lovelife not you!

Perdido Street Station

Finished the utterly marvelous Perdido Street Station by China Mieville last night. Absofuckinglutelytastic! This goes straight into the Angus' Top Ten Best Reads of All Time List. Amazing story and I'd reccomend it to anyone who likes alternative fiction with a fantasy/steampunky feel.

Too Much Wine

As stated at the beginning of the post. I'm off to bed now. Goodnight sweet readers!

Phone Update

TRANSMISSION: START
My mobile is currently somewhere in either Enfield or Hertfordshire.

Must have fallen out of my coat when I was getting a lift home.
Hope to reclaim it over the weekend as that would be useful. For now though - if you have my work or home number please use that if you need to contact me. Alternatrively leave a message on LJ or email me!
TRANSMISSION: END

Ouch.

I reckon I'll have to call on the servcies of a small Brazillian if this doesn't get any better in the next couple of days.
