Apart from gigging my socks off this weekend has been pretty quiet. Yesterday I most read and slept and had a nice long bath with the stereo on loud while rjk was out and ate butterscotch angel delight and just generally slobbed about. Today I realised by hair was a mess from being slept on damp, and figured if I had to wash it again anyway I may as well make it purpler while I was at it. Then spent the afternoon at Relativity playing bridge. Ross and I versus Ian and Pete. The bidding wasn't spectacularly good, but there weren't really many completely glaring errors. Much the same with the play really. In the end we didn't quite manage to finish the third rubber (2 game each, and 90 and 40 points below the line respectively), and we had one rubber each, but overall Ross and I won on points, though we didn't bother to add it up and see exactly by how much. The hand where we had 10 diamonds and more than half the hearts too including the top four was just great fun to play out, even if it was impossible to really bid it beyond 5 diamonds and I couldn't quite work out how to get every trick. Good fun, and as I always say we should do it more often. Maybe we can teach Mike S to play :-)

Speaking of whom he's been in Mexico since Monday, visiting a friend who now lives out there and is getting married. Had one mail from him and it sounds like despite sunburn he's having a great time. Due back on Tuesday just in time for the We Are Scientists gig at the Junction. Looking forward to seeing him.
