PotC - eurothrashed - thatway

Random.

We ended up going to the pub last night because... er, it was payday? Well, as ever, nothing was defrosted and the only cook-from-frozen stuff left was fish, and we'd had scampi on Tuesday. Anyway, I had the nicest steak I've had in a while, and we ended up staying and half-playing the pub quiz. The majority of it turned out to be piss easy, at least until the final round when they pulled out the ridiculously obscure questions.

We are now trying to formulate a team to go back there at some point. yoshi may call people because if I ask, nobody will want to come. :P

I'm sure I had more to say than that. Um. I didn't realise until yesterday (upon checking the leave chart) that Noor is in fact off all of this week and not just two days, but thankfully there are also plenty of solicitors off because of half term so it hasn't been too insanely busy...

Tonight we are having stir-fry so I need to get some bits for that.

We are considering a London matinee at some point in my week off in June but I can't decide what to see. Vicky gave me a £10 theatre voucher for Christmas which I would like to use so I need to check where stuff is playing (it's only valid at certain theatres), but I'm considering Wicked, The Sound of Music or another viewing of Phantom or Avenue Q. I need a London theatre guide. Of course, it's also a case of when the mid-week matinees are...

Also? I wanted to see the tour of Mary Poppins but have just found out/re-remembered that Connie (ex-Maria) is in it. Meh. I don't like Connie. Also, I imagine they think it's incredibly ironic / clever to put her into another old Julie Andrews role, but it's really just annoying. And anyway, I thought she'd moved onto television territory these days? Annoying.

However, we may well be seeing Our House (the Madness musical) at the Rep so that should be cool. I saw a televised version on BBC3 which they recorded of the original London production and it was actually surprisingly good...

I think that's definitely everything...
