Once More With Sauce

A Refreshing Way To Enjoy Guiness...

Thanks to wyrdo for bringing this Guiness ad to my attention :)

Had a great weekend so far, lots of sun, drinking with friends in parks and possibly a bit too much frisbee action (if there can be such a thing).

Am off to see The Dark Knight in a bit, then maybe a spot of lunch with a couple of friends and then back home to work for the rest of the day.

Talk laters and have a good Sunday folks!

Jasmina Update

Jasmina is staying in Serbia. She moved back at the end of June as her Visa was about to expire and the original plan was for her to come back sometime in August. I was going to go over there and bring her home :p

But she's realised how much she missed the warmth of old friends, the culture and her family and after lots of thinking and talking has decided to try and make ago of things in Belgrade. She's going to start university there in October and is starting to look for part-time work tomorrow.

It was a really hard decision and one which is painful in some ways, but the right one to take at present. University is so much cheaper in Serbia than it is over here and she'll be able to live without so many money worries. Britain, and London especially, is very expensive to live in.

She says hello to those who know her btw and hopefully won't be a complete stranger. I'll almost certainly be heading over to Serbia in September now (August is a complete write-off due to conventions and other commitments) and personally can;t wait to catch up with the young lady again.

She had become one of my closest and dearest friends and it is going to hurt that she isn't here anymore. But the joys of modern life means that with MSN, Skype, email, mobile phones, air travel, etc people are never really all that far away.

I'm sure she'll be fine and have a great time to boot.
