New Hat

ObUpdate

Not been at my best this week: I guess that finally finishing the report and being more or less sorted for the new job(for some values of "sorted", anyway) resulted in my subconscious and/or immune system deciding that the guard could be dropped somewhat.

Didn't really feel up to going into work on Collapse )

Tonight, though, I'm off to a pub quiz with someone from work: it's at the Seahaven Hotel in Portobello (map here). The person I'm going with is a former policeman who's spent some time teaching English Poetry in Iraq/Kurdistan and who's been trying to get a bunch along to this quiz for a while now. I don't think we'll see many folk from work there, but anyone reading this - especially if they know their music - would be dead welcome.

The quiz starts about 8ish, and apparently the pub has good beers and a nice range of malts. Oh, and according to Traveline Scotland's Journey Planner (which is a useful site to have linked in itself - especially as you can put in postcodes directly now), there's a bus back into town at 11.17 (which gets me home for midnight, more or less).
