london

Busy week.....Busy fucking week. I took the week off of work for my birthday. Me and my girlfriend decided to make some big plans.

The biggest plan was a trip to London. I bought it way back in January for Our anniversary. The trip consisted of 2 nights in a hotel and the train ride to and from London from Nottingham. We Decided to take a late....iiiiish train on the way down on Tuesday. We got there for 2 o' clock. Went straight to the hotel checked in and chilled for an hour or so. I bought us tickets to Mamma Mia for Tuesday night. In all honesty I expected to be fucking bored out of my brain. I have seen the film...well I lasted about 40 minutes anyway. But the play was actually very funny and entertaining. The singing was great and although the acting was cheesy as fuck it just worked. That however could have been the few pint I had before the play and man is beer expensive at the theatre. We also went to TGI Fridays for a meal before the show. All I have to say is Jack Daniels Sauce ROCKS!!!!!!

Wednesday we a bleeding packed day. We went to both the natural history museum HE HE Dinosaurs and the Science Museum. It was awesome. Really interesting. I could see they were boring the missus though so I did rush through them a little quicker than I would have alone. After the museums and lunch we went to the London Eye. It was fucking crazy. You can see for miles around. All the way from the Houses of Parliament to Tower Bridge. I really enjoyed the experience. I think it would have been better without the weather ruining pictures and shit. It was pissing it down I mean I bought some new converse the day before....ruined fucking 1 day. The rain did stop however for our short boat trip up The Thames. Seeing the sights by the river is great and introduces a few goo photo opportunities. Finally we went on a tour inside Tower Bridge. All the way up to the walkways above and down to the engine rooms. My girlfriend especially loved it. She has a strange affection for the bridge and became really excited upon seeing it. That was basically it for our London trip. I think we fit a hell of allot in our 2 days there and it was bloody knackering. I loved it though and we hope to go to Paris soon.

Friday. My Birthday. 24 WOW, that's depressing. I'm in my mid twenties now. WOW. Anywaygot a few good presents. Clothes, games, blu rays and a hella lot of chocolate. Also I went to see The Avengers in iMax 3d. Fucking great film. The best depiction of Hulk I have seen outside of comics ever. I really wanna go see it again. Saturday I went to a pool Party at a friends. It was fun I suppose. I'm not really a fan of swimming. Its just not fun.

Thats all. Bloody busy week. Not much chance for gaming. I haven't even touched most of my game related presents. I did play:

The Witcher 2

I have heard and read allot about this game since its release last year so I thought I should check it out (+ it was a present from my girlfriend). The problem is the game has an issue on AMD cards. The game just stutters along. No matter how I play it. I did find a fix on the official forum that helps but doesn't entirely eliminate the problem. The game is fun really good. I have only really played an hour because of the problem. I am really hoping for a patch soon.

The Walking Dead

I played through the first chapter in one sitting. Its great. I don't generally like adventure games but I think my love for walking dead sold me on this.

Back at work now Not much going on this week. I pre ordered Diablo 3 and look forward to checking that out. My first attempt at the series. I hope to play more Witcher 2 this week. Going to see American Pie but that's about it.

TGI Fridays? Huh, I thought that only existed here in America. Didn't think they were that successful. Food has always been sub par and bland. But I guess it's decent for the price

From my experience TGI's is better in London for some unknown reason @deathstriker666:

Glad you had fun. You write like its your first time to London, its not long on the train from Nottingham so you can go more often!

Edited by nutta27

@JBird: its not long no but the train isn't exactly cheap either.....plus we don't get much spare time. Its my 3rd time to london . 1st I just went madame tusaurds. 2nd was footy at Wembley (we won). This was the first time I actually did proper tourist shite.

LAST WEEK WAS THE RAINIEST EVER IN LONDON OH MY GOD WOW.

And yes, Avengers IMAX 3D was fucking fantastic, you should have popped into the Prince Charles or one of the other independent cinemas and saw Being Elmo or something, though. That would have been a cool experience!
