WED 11th AUG : GOOD AND BAD IN ONE DAY

Started running again this morning. The good thing is that we are a block or so further from the river so more distance to run. The other good thing is that we're two or so blocks closer to the British Shop which
allowed me to have a pork pie to recover from all that puffing.

I then proceeded (a little later) to have a drink with a couple of the lads who are in the office space here together with the guy I work in the agency with. Ended up in appropriate dive bar (Blind Tiger) close to home and realised it was happy hour to 8pm. It was 5pm.

Somehow they guys all start talking to some fairly attractive but desperate looking thirty year olds. Sometimes there are good signs to point out psycho women: one of them wore pink trousers and had ridden a pink bike to the pub, the other owned a female football team. It's great to see the different American approaches at work at trying to gain attention: One lad kept slipping his arm round one,
The guy from work bounced into her repeatedly as they stood outside having a cigarette, one guy kept buying them drinks (of course) and, naturally, they loved my accent but couldn't pronounce my name and soccer-boss soon ignored me when I couldn't name my top 11 players in the world.

Of course it was the guy who showed the least interest who got the number. Birds. And guess what - soccer bird got in the basket of the bike whilst pinkie rode her home. Or possibly rode her violently into a curb. They had been keeping up.

Altho the Lady was expecting me home at about 7pm somehow I get persuaded at 9.30 to go to my new favorite pub (suggested by me) for a couple more. Of course the cell phone is ringing - the Lady's face is appearing on the screen - and you have that conundrum: do I answer this and try to answer the ladies pretty reasonable questions about where I am or do I ignore it? The choice of ignoring it always selected. Perhaps unwisely.

I get home at 11.30. I am not in the good books to say the least. I am surprised the neighbour didn't complain again.
