how was your weekend?

Mine was somewhat stressful, actually. Came up to London on Saturday night to DJ at International Hi-fi, only to find that all the trains were completely screwed due to a lightning strike on the trackside (eeeeep!). That was my cue to sit on a sweltering Thameslink train (all the Southern services had been cancelled) without any air-con, as we dawdled up to London in about 2 hours. Gah.
Sunday at least brought with it a chance to eat BBQ and drink Scrumpy: without that i'd have just given up on the entire weekend.
This week then? John Foxx on Thursday night at the Scala, with Palace Fires at the Metro before that...there's the launch of Xfm's new club night, The Weekender, at the Islington Academy on Friday night, oh and Mumm-Ra and TheLongcut at Dingwalls tonight....

Harrogate Crime Festival - £200 a night for a room in a hotel with no air-con and windows that didn't open.
No choice but to remain in the bar and try to drown myself in a bucket of pimms.

I'm sorry I missed the Harrogate crime festival but it sounds like a great idea. I've always thought that Harrogate was a bit staid and this is just the sort of thing it needs to liven it up. So what did you get up to? a bit of shoplifting, some car crime perhaps or did you do a couple of sub post offices? I presume you didn't pay your hotel or bar bill.

Nick, I think I actually broke the laws of quantum physics at one point, and having reached critical mass, briefly morphed into Hercule Poirot.

I also somehow managed to mix up an order for sandwiches at 3am and ordered £63 worth.

I would say Harrogate rocks, but Iain might get the wrong idea.

I hope you got wagyu beef in your £63 sandwich.
