A sign?

Today I managed to forget to take in my pass for work. Not a major problem - the front desk still had a spare pass I borrowed with a £5 deposit. However, then I got in and logged into my laptop - which decided the profile was corrupt and set me up a new one. How nice of it.

Luckily logging out and back in again seemed to fix its hiccup. Hmpf. Not a great start to the week.

The weekend was a quiet one for me, and I took full advantage of it by doing practically nothing I have on my list (aside from a load of washing and some washing up) and instead taking T to the cinema (except that turned out to be T and her friend) and then playing computer games for the rest of it, when I didn't watch some more Heroes or eat or sleep.

Speaking of sleep, I'm knackered today. I woke up early for some reason and just don't seem to be properly awake. Apparently I have some dude coming in to work with me today so I better wake up soon.

My 30th this year

Well, my 30th is this year, on 28th August 2007. I thought I should do something a bit out of the ordinary for it, and the idea of a medieval banquet kept popping up in the back of my head. So, it's getting on a bit now for making these sorts of arrangements, but let's give it a go and see what level of interest there is.

After having a trawl around, Cardiff Castle looks like the best place to have a medieval banquet. This one will be a traditional welsh banquet, with a cost of £35 a head, which includes all food, wine and entertainment (click the link for the menu and more details). UPDATE: New organisational post is here.

Although I don't usually do fancy dress, it might be nice to give it a go :)

I guess we'd make a weekend out of it. We're vaguely thinking of taking the train so we can all drink; it'll be cheap enough as well if it's booked enough in advance.

There may be a separate party weekend to all this as well, depending on all sorts of things :)

I'd love to, but it's too much money / too far / I am a pumpkin
