Today I get up, not knowing where I am going. The day looks nice outside as I draw the curtains back. And for a change for a meeting I do not have to get up at the crack of dawn. The person who has arranged it has considered that others can only sensibly get places by 10:30am.
I get in the car squeezed next to the road work cones, set up my phone in the new holder and set off, with Google maps navagting me up the A38, a route I’ve not taken for some many many years. Maybe 20 old. Nothing seems to have changed although I’m sure it has.
Berfore you know it I’m here, in northern part of Chestfield. I park up, call a couple of colleges and find my way to the people I’m here to see.
As meetings go, this one was productive and actively getting some things sorted to move forward. There are other meetings that don’t go like this. In particular at this meeting I have very little idea what it is we are talking about, but when I’m lost they are happy to go over it again. In reality this meeting wasn’t for me, I was there to ensure things moved forward and to get a thousand signatures. Without these things wouldn’t move forward else where. By the time I get to my home town, there is time to get something for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary for tomorrow.
I didn’t really know what to get and then I had a light on in my head. And so I went to the engravers. And whilst it was being done I went shopping before sitting down here.
I nipped in next door from the engravers, and got Sega Classics collection, and then went to a charity shop and picked up a tie, and Ticket to Ride Europe. Before you know it though it is time to collect the gift.
And whilst I know my mom will like it I’m not sure about my dad.
Perhaps he will just be happy if my mom is happy.
Well one hopes.
And whilst I was in town I went into Wilkos and got the electrical items I needed to do that light outside.
I also got a bottle of Lenor for £1.75 instead of £3.90. What a saving.
The big decision was what to get for tea tonight. I actually looked in the freezer at what had been in their a long time.
And along with those pieces of chicken, these peas and corn had been in there ever since ever.
I did a bit of mash and then added some chilli to flavour and magnificent.
I got the Ticket To Ride Europe out and checked all the bits were there. And yes they are. The board isn’t as big as Alan's but this might make a nice change.
Eventuall I go the PS2 working and put on Sega Classics. Whilst there are several games on here, there is one I’m looking forward to playing.
I had never heard of them doing a PS2 version of the game, so would this be any good. I mean if they could do an awsome job of it on the master system and the Spectrum 128, could this be a dissapoint like all the other systems and versions.
And so it starts just how you would expect it.
So there is something not quiet right, but its not the game play, that is spot on.
And hell its challenging!
And it ends how it should.
And you crash and play again, and you crash and you play again. So that's not a bed thing.
Is it the fact the Ferrari car graphics are all wrong. Yes it is.
But if I’m truefull. Apart from this, this is the best version ever. It is awesome. Why Why Why had I never know it to be released on this system?
One more go? Yes of course because it is that good!
Eventually I switch to Space Harrier, could this be as good?
No it can’t, its awful!
And with that I go to bed, put my head phones on and listen to James – Walk Like You.
