Nathan & Claire
Yesterday I headed off to St Mary's Church, near Newbury, for my cousin's wedding. These are some pictures of the day, mainly of my cousin, Nathan, and his new wife, Claire, but my other Cousins, my Uncles, my Grandmother and, of course, my Mum & Dad make guest appearances. Curiously the rain storms ripping accross the country stopped for the day, and the sun popped out, making for rather a nice day.

Time for some quick Strong Bad FAQs before getting back to another game of Duck Guardian 2 [via op-pop].

Update: play the original duck guardian here! No news on a release date for version 2 yet.

Brain Hotel
Visit the brain hotel with the same people that gave you a case of the crabs... not, as it appears, advice that means your next stop will be the doctor's surgery, but some more point'n'click gaming fun.

I've been helping out a friend who is visiting London soon by supplying them with some suggestions of sights that must be seen, restaurants that must be eaten at, and bars that must be imbibed in.You don't realise how little you take advantage of what's on your doorstep until you start thinking about it. Anyway while I was coming up with ideas my friend Preeti came up with the excellent toptable which features some great London restauarants, with reviews, let's you book on-line and also has some great special offers. With their points reward scheme I already have enough points for half a chip at McDonalds ;o)

The simple search options are especially useful letting you restrict your restaurant hunt on place, price, cuisine and the like. Searching around the area I work in (SE1) produces quite a tasty list of places straight-off, many of which I wasn't even aware of. This is a site I'll be visiting again and again.

Despite the attempts of my dodgy cutting'n'pasting even my output from the figlet server looks pretty cool (Nb. I had to look it up too - FIGlet is a program for making large letters out of ordinary text).

Having had a few incoming visits from singingfish I went and checked it out - it's quite a nice specialist search engine designed for finding audio and video files. From some quick tinkering I managed to retrieve not only some streaming real audio of current tracks I'm interested in, but also some full length MP3s of older tracks. Naughty I'm sure, but nice none-the-less.

Quick Brick
Not quite Tetris, but not that dis-similar, Quick Brick is an addictive puzzle game in it's own right which has already used up far too much of my time.

FC Fabulous
During Euro 2004 my football apathy dropped for a while, but I think FC Fabulous might be what gets me watching football all the time.

"Gulp whenever Dr. Cox calls J.D. a girl's name..." The rules of the Scrubs drinking game are a sure-fire way to get drunk in less than half an hour if that's what you call fun.

Typical - I've only been back in the country for a week and I get a bizarre summer cold thing that ruins my weekend and keeps me off work for a couple of days. I've been feeling rotten so I haven't gotten round to posting anything - the only thing I've been good for is eating paracetamol and drinking orange juice. Anyway I've dragged myself out of bed now and I'm feeling pretty much better - back to work for me in the morning, but first some light posting...
