Don't do it.
Thanks to the advice of friends on Saturday night, i didn't. But i was sure as hell drunk and adamant that I was sober enough and of good health to drive from Highgate home. After about 10 minutes of
arguing and debating a lost cause I got a cab home with my girlfriend. The journey home was fun with arguing and shouting leading to hugging and an apology from me. Drunk people sure are stubborn!
This week has been a good food week as you probably would have guessed from my Food Page, with trips to Mumbai Junction for a monthly curry, Morito, for a surprise Valentines dinner and on Sunday night Hawksmoor, for some lovely £70 steak. £70!!!!!! Basically I am now broke so I will be spending my time this week doing nowt. The steak last night was good but it was slightly overhyped by my colleagues. I would definitely recommend it but £70 for a steak is a bit much and there are other places I would recommend before Hawksmoor (Buen Ayre and Smithfield Bar & Grill).
So the weekend started very relaxed with a night in watching the film ‘Artist’ on Friday night. This silent movie was really good and less than two hours so it meant an early night which was great. Saturday was my first viewing for a place. I have spoken about this too much and not actually seen anywhere so itwas a good way to finally stop talking and start doing something. The rest ofSaturday involved drinking. It was three friends birthdays in the evening and they involved Beer, JD and coke, Amaretto, tequila and some more beer which all together made me feel like a young Michael Schumacher (not really). Drinks inLondon are so expensive and we are powerless to stop spending. My main problemis that I buy rounds, which is a typical guy thing to do. We are out with friends so we like to treat each other and be seen as someone that can provide booze and usually we hope to get rewarded with a drink back.
After waking up at midday Sunday, the six hour sleep was not enough I lazed about on Sunday and watched football. Liverpool won which was great after a few bad results and Sturridge scored again. What an impact he has had, the game against Wet Brom where he was injured showed that we now do need him in our starting 11!
Now, early Monday morning and I already have a viewing in place for tomorrow night so no more ALL TALK. Time for action and hopefully getting the roof fixed too.
