Guestbook :(

Today was spent fixing bugs on my Guestbook I have two outstanding bugs left at the moment, getting words to wrap in side the repeating region and also setting up a redirection so that if the person posting a message doesn't enter a username they get sent to a different page and are asked to enter there username, almost solved this one, but am still working on it.

Yeah! Fixed the second bug (Form validation) before going of the The Goat for a well deserved Guinness but only one, because I gotta work tomorow at 9am :(

Happy Samhuinn!!! The day of the party started with manic cleaning of the flat and decorating it suitably. Then I turned my attention to carving pumpkins.

Oh, scarry!

After the carving I started on making pumpkin punch which consisted of 1 boiled and pulped pumpkin, ginger beer, cider, rum and some water after much experimentation I settled on 2 parts ginger beer, 1 part cider, a half part rum, a part and a half of water and six spoon fulls of pumpkin, I then mixed this together in the blender and put the mix in a bowl carved from a very large pumpkin. It was then time to get ready. Jaava decided to get dressed up as a ned


I (Unsurprisingly) decided to come as the "Big Bad Wolf" The outfit consisted of black clothes with lots of make up, a pair of pointy wolf ears and a long (Home made!) tail. AY helped my out to put my make up on and it turned out great and very celtish :)

Big bad iwolf64 and carbon dog!

Just before finishing my make up Jaavaa and his brother John arrived back after going to get food earlier (Not in the ned out fit!) John was the first of all the guests not to make any effort to turn up to a fancy dress party in fancy dress so he had the chance to dip into the blue bag of mystery I had prepared earlier to pull out a random piece of fancy dress.

John with catty ears!

As mentioned previously no one decided to wear fancy dress and the blue bag of mystery was soon depleted after Tam took the cat tail and Ctaan took the collar and immediately placed on Bagpuss_thecat.


After the bag was empty I had to resort to using left over decorations, of which the fake spider web was the most popular.

Sarah and Arron

And also...

Sarah and Arron, again

Well, that was the 'Fancy dress' Samhuinn party, it didn't go quite the way I expected but it was still a good night.

Big bad iwolf64 and Carbon dog again :)

Work!!! On a Saturday!!! Surely not!?!

Working on a Saturday's not natural, Saturday's are for recovering from hangovers and trying to remember (Or forget) the night before! At least it was only 10am till 6pm and I didn't get too drunk last night!

A Night at the opera, er I mean Cinema :p

Yesterdays night out started with me finishing work at 4pm :) and heading into town to collect my wallet (That I'd stupidly dropped in a taxi last week!) from the police station in Pit Street. Afterwards it was off to Bon Accord where I first of all had a pint of Orkney Dark ale which was lovely :) After spending a brief (Yet incredibly frustrating) ten minutes trying to get Ubuntu to recognize my Buffalo g54 wireless card using ndiswrapper (Again!), _gneil arrived followed about fifteen minutes later by Jaavaaguru. After a pint of Topsey Turvey and Lai Fail (Both of which are highly recommended ales!) we moved on, briefly checking out the likes of Driftwood and Nicos, neither of which had much happening, so we didn't stay for a drink, we eventually ended up at Rufus T's Where we had a drink before moving on to Walkabout to meet up with Cat and Kat before going on to the UGC to watch the film 'Serenity'.


Serenity is the film version of the very short lived Sci-Fi flop Firefly that showed briefly (About 13 episodes) in 2002 on the sci-Fi channel. It is written, directed and produced by Joss Whedon (Buffy the vampire creator). Don't misunderstand everything I'm about to write here, the film was very watchable, it had a good script, was well directed and the acting (All be it a touch shaky at parts) was solid, unfortunatly the film fell flat on it's face, it seems to have a bit of an identity crisis. It seems to be trying to mix elements of Star Wars, Indiana Jones and several other top Sci Fi shows and movies and towards the end turns into a sci-fi version of buffy the vampire slayer. This unfortunately left the film feeling a little flat, uninspiring and un-original which is a shame. Fans of buffy will love this film no matter what however if you're looking for top of the line original sci-fi avoid this film, if you're after a bit of a laugh and are looking to sit back and not have to think about what you're watching too much then this is for you.

After The cinema _gneil, Jaavaa and I went to Frankenstein where I had a beer called Desperado (Which has Tequila in it!!! :) ) After that it was off to Bloc for one more beer before heading home. On the way we all felt the need for a Subway, so after stopping at the subway on Sauchiehall Street, where the staff were very friendly but there Manager looked like a total twat!

After that it was off home for a well deserved kip :)
