On Saturday I went out for a meal with my family for my Grandad's 80th birthday. It was a pretty posh restaurant and the food was REALLY good. But my brother's bread and butter pudding came with a load of orange rind - I guess as decoration, although who knows, maybe you were supposed to eat it. Anyway, my brother piled all of his peel on top of the peel on my cousin's plate, creating a small mountain of the stuff. After some discussion of the message this would send the chef when the plates were removed, my brother decided to remove all ambiguity from said message:
Needless to say, the wine had been somewhat flowing. Just another shining example of the weird and random exploits of my family.
Anyway, there are a couple of other pictures from the weekend that can be viewed on my Flickr
I also had a funny evening Monday night, when I went to see The Holiday with Ali. The film was pretty good, although it was quite long and man, I didn't get home til after midnight! But we had a fun evening as always. Much hilarity.
We went into a bar before the film started and moaned like the old people we clearly are about the volume of the music television in there. But who can blame us in the face of such musical genius as Jibbs' Chain Hang Low. I mean someone has written a song to the tune of "Do your ears hang low?" (let's keep it clean here people), only incorporated the amazing lyrics:
Do your chain hang low
Do it wobble to da flo
Do it shine in the light
Is it platinum is it gold
Could you throw it over ya shoulder
If ya hot it make ya cold
Unfortunately the sound quality on this video sucks, but the skinny white boys made me laugh!
