K, spent last weekend at [livejournal.com profile] nadriel's, and went to [livejournal.com profile] synth_culture, which was, as before, very very cool.

Saw lots of people I knew as well, including Louise/"Gothic Britney" from the bunker who's now all grown up and studying up there, and Rich/Angel of Black, who lives in Salisbury now and was celebrating his birthday. Good mix of music, good mix of people, some very attractive women. And I even managed to sleep a bit on Mike's floor, despite the snoring. I'm considering a hotel closer to the venue for next month, if I make it. definately going again.

Saturday, I slept the morning, then went shopping in London. Bought the Best of Ministry CD and the new one (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] tispity and [livejournal.com profile] shadow_exe for going on about it and reminding me, very cool). Also bought Bauhaus Gotham, which turned out to be a live album, not a best of, but very cool nonetheless. Anyone know if Bauhaus has done a best of CD? Not a huge fan, but I like Ziggy and Bela Lugosi so I reckon I'll like more. Then I went to Waterstones Piccadilly. Large bookshops are really bad for my wallet. Bought the rest of Scott card's Ender books, which I've completed now; anyone who hasn't read it, read Ender's Game. Just do it. I also bought the then China Mieville and the new Jon Courtney Grimwood. Half way through the Mieville, bit more confusing than Perdido St Station, but very cool. Barry: China Mieville, Perdido St Station. Seriously, I suspect you'll love it.

Afterwards, went back to Mikes, chatted a bit, then drove home, got back to Torquay at 1.30am, 3.5 hours after leaving London; not bad journey time that, A303 was pretty clear...

Sunday, I woke up mid afternoon; then went to Exeter, played some games,t hen went back tot he flat to sleep.

Work? Well, Monday and Tuesday we had colleagues from Germany over; 2 I'd met before, good to see them again, in contact with both a lot by email so faces useful. 3 others, one actual agent from Munich, and two newer staff I also contact a lot. Sandra was nice. Michaela was gorgeous, and a vegetarian. Spent a lot of time chatting to her, and definately going to really push to get sent over there at some point soon. Damn my professionalism (and the untidy state of my flat, really must clean the place up if I'm going to start flirting with women again)...

Rest of the week has gone pretty quickly, read books in free time, slept a lot (really tired after germany/London) and got through a bit of work.

Ah well, off to have a shower, Mike down, so a Bunkering we go...

Sounds like you've been having fun.

Was the Ministry album "Greatest fits"? I have that and it's very good :).

See you at the Bunker (Not that you're likely to get this beforehand)...

The Ministry is Houses of The Molé, which is pretty awesome, and actually an album, not a greatest-hits comp with questionable picks. =p
