Bar curling, Donner kebab and a rusty hoof!!!


Good morning interweb, actually it is wonderful morning, the sun is in the sky and I can even see a bit of blue up there, although it is not actually blue, the blue colour of the sky is due to Rayleigh scattering. As light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths pass straight through. Little of the red, orange and yellow light is affected by the air. However, much of the shorter wavelength light is absorbed by the gas molecules. The absorbed blue light is then radiated in different directions. It gets scattered all around the sky. Whichever direction you look, some of this scattered blue light reaches you. Since you see the blue light from everywhere overhead, the sky looks blue.
 Right now we have cleared that up, what a fab night that was.
Jen has come up for a few days from her blacksmithing training thingy type thing and so we arranged to meet up for a few beers and a chin wag. I also sent out an invite to Lisa and Paula who we havn’t seen in ages and hoped that they would turn up.
 We arrived and Alex and Disco Stu gave us the usual warm welcome and introduction to the new bar staff, Alex was still explaining the complexities of working behind a bar to one whilst Stu had already trained the other with a simple bar, glasses, pump statement followed by a gesture. It was shortly after this that a game of bar curling with lit tea lights erupted into being. It could catch on you know!!!!



Paula and Lisa arrived which was nice as it’s been a while and hugs all round and general chit chat till Jen arrived, more hugs.
Right, it is at this point I realised that I was greatly outnumbered but began the abuse anyway. I think the highlight of which had to be the statement about Paula and her rusty hoof!! Think camel toe and your at least in the ball park there and if you don’t know what I'm on about I'm not about to start explaining. Maybe a wire brush and dettol could sort it out or maybe even a brillo pad of some sort.
As im sure you can imagine things only went down hill from there on in, Paula and myself had tequila which actually was very nice and was the first tequila Ive ever tasted that didn’t taste of 4star, that's a petrol that we used which was full of lead for those of you who are to young to remember.
Was nice to see Sam and his girlfriend as well and at some point soon we will be off to the driving range and maybe even the golf course to whack a few balls.
The new barman was very drunk by the end of the evening, even more so than me and that's going some and was trying with all his will to have a bet with me that Wales would not qualify for the rugby world cup, then it was that they wouldn’t make the last 8 then I just pretty much agreed to whatever it was he wanted to bet a tenner on. Seems like he will fit right in at The West End Bar.
 As the evening drew to a close, well for us old crumblies anyway the subject turned to that of the rioting and the state of our country and it’s youth. There will always be differences of opinion on such subjects mostly because of my draconian ideas of string em up and publicly flog them in the streets but it was all taken in good nature.
Then as we left the pub we had to run the gauntlet of the kebab shops trying to resist that 1000 calories of musthaveness and I have to confess to failing in an epic manner at this task and ordering chips, pot of chilli sauce and a Donner kebab.
 So all in all a great night out with old friends and now new ones as well.
I still have not found any powerful magnets yet but jens new bra which apparently goes bouncy bouncy bouncy as she walks has given me a new train of thought on the idea to get my particle accelerator up and running.
Peace out y'all THE BAGSTA XXX
