Partying and reasons for doing so…

The Beagles won 12:1 in Bradford on Thursday night and we have safely returned to Edinburgh at stupid o’clock in the morning. Unfortunately Friday is also the day of Jenny’s magical creature party which I would normally just ignore and use the valuable time gained by doing so for sleeping. Yet I have spent monies and put effort into making my costume and I intend to show it off! I have decided to go for Vin and I am happy with the decision. My mum gave me an amazing tip on how to put my cloak together and it took no time at all. Other equipment will unfortunately remain unfinished or missing but I did what I could with the little time I had.

Well the party ended up being a total disaster for the following reasons:
– my rogue top, which is btw amazing, didn’t arrive until Saturday morning
– my pants were pants!!!
– for once, Edinburgh failed to be windy (or misty), this would have been a great advantage when taking photos under streetlights, the misty look would have been produced by itself and there would have been no requirement for me fluffing up my cloak like a hen in heat! We will have to have another go at this!
– Benji was too tall to be a dwarf!!! (I never thought this possible!)
– Whiski kept eating my misty cloak and throwing up!
– only one person recognised me,

Here’s a photo:

Introducing Beagles, Phoenixes, Drakes and other sports…

My uni ice-hockey team, the Edinburgh Beagles, beat the Hull Ice Hogs 3:1 in the season opener game last Wednesday night at Murrayfield Ice Rink.
My reccy ice-hockey team, the Edinburgh Phoenix, beat Edinburgh Lions 12:0 last Friday night.
I am only going to post about the games that either involve the Beagles (woof!), or ones I have actually played.

Also a major miscalculation on my part caused me to sign up for gym (I thought I was going to break even after four visits a months but actually it’s six), now if I don’t want to gym on weekends or hockey days that basically comes up to every second weekday. *sigh*

I neglected my blog yesterday. Shame on me! I got involved in yet another geeky role playing iPhone game. This one is called Earth and Legend and to be perfectly honest, it doesn’t compare with Aralon, my previous addiction. It has very few side quests that would help the character gain experience and is quite unbalanced in that the character must keep killing a weaker animal over and over again for no other reason than levelling up in order to possibly get another quest. Man, the number of wolves I have slaughtered last night… Went from level 11 to 20 on wolves only, there was no other way.
And I have to admit, I did like the funky hair colours available for the Aralon characters!
I yet have to decide which game’s graphics in prefer. Here they are:

   

I am over that now and ready to face another blogging week.
Although my flatmate Philipp seems to have just got a game I could get seriously addicted to… *sigh*
