My LED bulbs have come for my Eunos. You may think why bother and to be honest I would too but illuminating the cabin with so many casues the tiny battery to go flat when cleaning the car. So hopefully these will help.

Oddly they sent me the bulbs I'd ordered plus some. So I've got some spares and some I didn't ask for. eh who's moaning not me. They were bloody expensive in the first place.

They do seem however to work much much better than the normal bulbs. oh illumination!

Well I thought it may well be time to replace my New Balance trainers. I've loved these ever since I bought them back in....

Gothenburg Sweden in 2004. I don't think I've ever had such good trainers! And I wish I could have found some more, but I didn't. Perhaps I should go down the gym and try them out? Nah tommorrow ;)

On facebook Zoe asked me to take the quizz 'name the child hood toy'. Now it came to my surprise that the Tree People was on there. I had now recolection of this until I saw it, then I remebered how much I loved it. Even the little lift in the truck you can't make out here. What a nice thought.

Aggggggggg my computer keeps crashing. Hell we are out of hard disk space on both drives. Well theres a USB hard drive 500GB which I purchase for 70 spondunies. I move all my pictures and movie files to this lovely device. Mess around with the devious Sonic Stage and move all the music from C drive to the now F drive and low and behold. Its all systems go go go.

Well with the thought getting ever closer that the Eunos Hood just isn't going to last much longer, I must get those switches sorted so that I can install a rear heater switch. Mazda in there wisdom only left three switch holes. And so I buy from ebay a MKII switch with a double fog light switch for the front and rears.

No job is easy though and the wiring all needs modifying. A five minute job in fact takes me a long long long time only to find out the thing isn't working because......

the wiring loom isn't earthing properly. How the hell was it working before.

And here is the final layout all illuminated at night! Ye Ha.

Well I go so often I thought it might well be a good idea to get a book and see what I'm missing inbetween Calais and point destination. Besides I think I'm sure there'd be no better place to live. Mind Les keeps going on about La Grand Tour De France. So I guess it might be worth getting prepared.

Well at the moment Rog has decided to go swimmiing on Tuesday's. I'm not sure wheather this is just to piss Poade off or not. Maybe it's because Poade has been out swimming him. Anyway we wne tin his new mini.

And to be honest I've been in one of these when they first came out and the sales man asked what I thought. Why ask I own the best car in the world.

Well its got that big dial in the center. Nicely lite up and yeah nice touch by being able to change the mood lighting. Perhaps I can do that with the Cav too?

Erm I was mentioning those lovely sunsets. Well every bloomin morning I have to chesil off the ice. One Eunos in deep freeze.

Monday, February 18, 2008

Well we've being getting some really realy cool sunsets just laterly. Just thought I'd let you know.

Well that hangover turned into a man cold which matches the weather outside. It got really cold. Anyway I worked late on Friday and jsut went to bed in the hope I would be better Saturday.

Apparently it was -10deg C last night.

Well I went to Wolvo to get some Bio diesel from a new supplier. This one is based by the Mazda dealer - ie not as far to drive. We had a catch and this chap reckons his is better than bubbles car wash bio diesel. But then again he's going to say that. The Bio seems to be rising in line with normal diesel and is now up to 85p. at this rate I'm going to be throwing in SVO soon as it will be worth while. And so £45 lighter I leave witha full 65 litre tank smelling a bit odd.

I arrive at Matt's and Maddies. Zoe and Alan are there and everyone is busy playing Oblivion while they patently wait for me to turn up.

And off we go to get our 'costumes'

Looks like the trousers are a bit tight!

Alan dresses up well.

Nope I'm not going to turn round for the camera. Erm looks like they've got to change the jacket specialy for me.

If Alan is getting braces for being too thin, then I want braces for being too dam thick...

Well after the fitting we all went for a nice winter afternoon walk around Harborn.

Which wasn't bad becasue we got to watch Alan badly eating a chip butty and making a right pigs arse of himself in doing so at the Plough Inn.

He blamed it on the source!

Zoe of course goes with something a bit more wholesome and serious.

Yum yum apple crumble and custard..

Matt has some posh sandwich, which as he finds out is made from stale bread and rather hard to chew.

While me and Maddie join Zoe with apple crumble - as you can see I finish mine off promptly.

We jump to the evening where we hit Harborn for an exquisit Thia meal togeather. Here I have my first beer since last weekend - some Thia stuff that I'm not impressed with.

Unlike the food of course which is first class, even the pancake pudding filled with toasted seasamie seeds and covered in green snot panda source (not shown here as I ate the lot!). We go to another pub which I had been to in Harborn before. One where there was sawdust on the floor. Oddly though it had been done out. the clientel though was still the same drunken characters! Here I slowly drank two pints of Brew XI (Prenounced Brew 11) or as Alan asked for Brew 'X' "I" - with the barman saying I don't think we stock that! I had a massive nose bleed out of the blue and some drunk girl fell onto Matt and Al, We called it a night as I wanted bed and no more beer oddly - perhaps last weekend has affected me.

Sunday I awake at about 11:50am to someone shout help I'm locked in the toilet. Nack to the rescue and I guess I get up and enjoy the sunshine.

Well its stag weekend and in the morning we all set off to shoot each other with paintballs. When I was asked if I was interested I obviously forgot A - its February and may well be very cold and B - it hurts when you get shot. Oddly it was a sunny morning and afternoon.

Well I was plastered in bruises and by 3:30pm we were at the Rainbow drinking outside in the winter sun! Now where's this coach thats going to take us to Worcester to have a good time?

All aboard and out come the tinnes. Is there really any need for them? Well it helps pass the time I guess.

Erm who's this coming down the coach??

There's only one problem with that batman suit mate. There's no fly ;)

Erm whats that you have got there? Looks erm painful....

Well what can I say. The night goes on and on and we drink more and more and more and more.

We move through a few venues and drink even more.

Some of us being to loose our inhabitations....

I think we all know whats going to happen next.....

Well at least his boxers have stayed on......

What is someone giving him a blow???

Luckily batman comes to the rescue.

Well this is the last photo and I have vague memories of not getting in Tramps with the bouncer asking me 'how many have you had tonight?' and me thinking and not being able to count said 'a few'. Well it wasn't a lie. I moved onto a pub and got talking to some Aston Villa fan at the bar. I know this because he was wearing an Aston Villa jacket. Things went down hill from here as I offered to buy him a drink. His reply to this was 'put your money away, the barmaid is my daughter' Free drinks there until closing at which point I moved onto some very very very seedy nightclub. Here I got on the dance floor where at some point a bouncer was annoyed I had my bottle with me on the dance floor. He objected and I advised him that in Wolvo its perfectly fine to have your beer bottle on the dance floor. I think he told me I'd had enough to drink which I baffled him about and said something like ' I agree' . He said he wanted me out so I looked at my watch and it was time to get the coach home so I said where the exit mate I've got to go. Having obviously bewildered him I left and wandered the very very cold streets of Worcester. As for Sunday well I woke up at 3pm got out of bed and found it very hard to site in the vertical position without feeling bad. So most of the evening I spent horizontal - until bed time. The next day I awoke and felt ill still - well hung over. How can this be, the day at work dragged and it was great to get home and to bed once more......
