Another Black Dickensian Friday

Well its another black friday upon us, this one was a hectic event which really made things a stressful time to see the least and then it gets worse with other parts. The vlog is below:

A Line beginning

So it was partly down to a manic event in work. But the day was earlier. I left the house after waking up and a shower which was lovely and chocolatey as well.

The clothes and steambox packed up and ready

Picking up the bag with the steambox and contents and walked down to work with that and vlogged a intro. Then it was another 14 minutes to work when trying to power walk. Eventually i got into work after 20 minutes of walking and the square looked nice and good with a christmas feel.

The trees and fair being setup

Then work was busy for me for most of the morning, Ladders, mind games, phone calls, and some Adverts to make as well as using 35mb of my FP mifi which worked a treat on granite or asphalt road. Then the steambox was powered on, but it didn't actually boot up, it might of turned out the HDD with OSX on is corrupted, oh bugger. But it was soon working nice and 100%.

Then the day went on and seeing people and guessing on what problems were, but the time was nearing a easy day at 3:30. Things were holding up and there have been customers on and neighbours panicking. for me not being there. But it turns out its not a quick fix anyway. So it was nearing a day of roaming closing time, things were quiet and preparation and old classical western music was the going rate here .

The ice cold windy evening,

Well it was a unique twist to it. The crowds were starting to gather around 5 and things for me were not that hyped. My parents popped into see me and we chatted. But then it was nearing 5:35 and it was time to order food. The lights looked beautiful and then it was the time i called up Chung ying using freedompop which worked nicely. Little stress and little asking but my neighbour was intrigued and wanted mushroom foo yung, so he lent me £6 to get it and then I added that to the call.

it has to be one of those selfies

The views from just outside work

Then it was a slight bit of killing time until 5:55. Which it was time to get to film the lights being switched on. Which crowds were being busy and the events were starting and the usual special announcements that were being made about shopping in the town and yup.

The decorations inside work

The trees are lit

So are the street lights

Then it was wandering up the road, heading towards the takeout to get the food and pay. Passing along the way, apart from my old work, we walked to just up there, seeing a roast chestnut stand and a empty nativity tents and also the stand with music playing which felt like what Peter Jackson would use in a emotional scene in a film. 

Then as i walked back up the main street, crowds were busy, existing shops were closing, and my old PE teacher saw me and we chatted, he was unsure on glass though. It was funny, since it was chatting to a fellow teacher about me and the rugby days (this was when I grabbed a guy by the balls and swung him around viciously as a tackle that was an accident in year 7). 

Looking down towards town

Then it was to pick up the Chinese. That was empty, I kid you not, I walked up and enquired on the order i placed, which i was right on time or maybe 2 minutes late for. Paid the £12.20 and that was it. Time to walk my way back to eat it.

Walking down with this, 

Walking down was quick, windy and busy. But i managed to get into work and nearly lost the chance to have a fork to eat it with, luckily, there was one in work. So it was time to eat it. I gave my neighbour the foo yung and then i had a nom while some customers were playing pacman CE 2 and some were chatting to me just before eating.

The combo i had, which was actually £7.60
Then  it was eating and talking and not many customers until about 7:30, which then I was going to explore the streets, which actually was quieter than i had thought, sure  it was busy and crowds everywhere but the events there were not as packed as i thought minus obby dancers and more chestnut stands and medical teams. Ok there was a photo booth but I wasn't really that good on time for getting a selfie done. 

Then it was walking to the Town hall, which some nice stands, soap, jewellery and many more bits and pieces. But one stand was a Aloe vera juce stand, with aloe vera related products, from toothpaste to drinks and even honey. So this cute mid aged bbws was chatting to me about them and I ended up trying 3 flavours. Christ were they strong and had some kick, the first one had a creamy flavouring which maybe was vanilla, the second was a cranberry style flavour and the 3rd was odd. She told me how the Poundland versions actually have plastic in them and is bad for your health, then again its £0.50 a 500ml bottle compared to £25 a 2L or less tub.

Then it was time to head back to work. With little happening exept a rocket league match and when I try to sell a xbox live code over mifi and the connection causes bugs to order a code and not be charged for it and have database errors when printing the code out for the chap, who waited 20 minutes before i had to refund him.

By the time, it was 9pm, with no internet, it was soon time to quickly pack up and walk home with that steambox in the bag and closed up and left by 9:30. With a freezing cold air, with the stalls and fair packing up and the lights shining brightly, it was a sign of the final beauty feels of the year.

Walking home and looking back at the square 
The lights are lovely looking here.

Then it was a walk home but what has to happen is that the battery on the phone died out which means Fit was out of touch, the final scene of the vlog had to be refilmed and also i think i might of killed 2 hard drives bringing it down and showing it off. But hey hoe, there was meant to be a 2TB drive to replace that 500GB in there but that was dead on arrival. Actually I was up until 3:30 getting the video made and 5:30 i started uploading it after crashing out and then it was up by 7am. 

So thats that, the final part of the November blog posts, okay it was actually 3 which is a bit poor and i'm sorry for that, works been busier than I wanted it to be. But soon its December,....

A Chilly LED Tasty Bonfire Night

Its the 2nd to last month of this year, with the winter approaching, colds in full swing for some and ending for others. Another year which is another event which is bonfire night. Now this was a first with the shoes and stagecoach, which might make me lost if im not careful, then again, its a Saturday night which things can change.  The vlog is below.

A work and prep

to be fair, the week after the Kerbal takeover which was underappreciated in some respects, its a normal moan Saturday for most in work.  With tesco connect tablet problems and a odd death of a 3570k, things were taxing on my mind. But i was prepared for what to do. I hope so.

Also i've got my hands on a GTX 1050 which was £134.99 and video and possibly a review will be soon on that one. The stock of that card os rare in the UK ATM, but soon it wont be long until that card is everywhere. it also inspired me for a project with a £27 gigabyte n3050 and a neat CiT F3 case. The video will be soon.

I ran home, dropped a prize off my friend at work won by my landlords  rep which is a cominal lottery thing, to help  money for the works on the place if needed, then it was catching up with family, which turns out a royal mail employee felt harassed by rosie barking near him passing the house and reported her. What a fucking pisstake. But then was emails and social to checks before we had a lush got shower and the change and charge.
  • Shoes - charged
  • Glass - charged
  • Phone - charged
  • iPod Nano - not that charged
  • Viddon - a quick charge 

Then it was a run and that was leaving  home at just gone 5:50. With the hoodie but no shirt underneath to make sure i have less sweat i pelted it down in 10 minutes minus a mini music change stop. People were waiting at the stop with others and that was going to be a packed bus, but hopefully the way back is not that bad.
The selfie at the bus stop

I got on and stuttering for asking for the ticket which the driver was like "oh thanks for a fiver", which slightly got up my back a bit, he was a cheerful chap though. Then i got on top deck, there was possibly hannah, the first girl i ever fed (only a poppadom) but she didn't see me back. other teens were on. The bus was getting packed quite quickly, the speed of the bus was better than other years with getting to the display

A view from the bus

After Marjon, there were these 2 girls, a blonde and  black hair. The Black haired on had a cute double chin, nice eyes with a green jack wills hoodie and it had that uni student vibe of drink but she bloats on cider and likes McDonald's. Which reminds me of these McDonald's discount until the ebd of the year at the one near the casino, which i could use to my advantage and have a McDonalds date, Libby offered but out of respect for swaggy, that should be a nope.Eventually the traffic was picking up, or so i thought but that was actually near cuba since it was nope, mutley. then it was time to vlog

About to leave and prep for the run to the hoe

A run to the hoe

this was a fast run  getting snapchat filters  to work, Google Fit ready to track me and wear glass. The run was not too bad, a bit of sprinting on the road since the point of me nearly tripping on the pavements. The Mercedes Pop up by the Powwow TV was nice too.

The Crowded Hoe

Eventually, crowds gasped at the shoes and i was by the hoe in 11 minute's. Easy and easy . the fair was busy and people were loving the shoes, it was time to expire before the bonfire was lit.

Then it was time, 7:30 and that bonfire was to be lit, which struggled at first but after a few minutes, it was a roar. To see it was just passing through crowds, bbws and kids. people really talking on the shoes, flashing away. But then it was lit,

The bonfire is bright

Smeaton's Tower and the bonfire

Then it was showing of the music and the long queues but killing time it was meant to be, which was i tried to upload to Snapchat, which failed on the 3g data. Not FreedomPop's fault for that.

The shoes lit green

Then it was time for the Fireworks, with no music which is an ideal for me as well as the nice bright colours, mostly golden as well as red, there were some greens but rarely a blue in there, I might of been too close to see it properly but thats life.

it starts

The shoes were popular as i wandered around the hoe, seeing various bits and bites and seeing bbws too, I ended up next to char whilst looking at Tagada, she was looking dreamy as always but hitched up, she asked what i was wearing (aka google Glass), which was odd but meh.

The fire was roaring away now

The fire was smaller but wider

Then it was back to the bonfire and a browse, which then it was time to head to town. That was by 9pm, on the way back into, i noticed a lady wearing led shoes and she mentioned the malfunction on them.

Exploring restaurants. 

Now it was time for me to fnd something to eat ans male sure ive had my fill, my irst choice, was McDonald's, since i still have a voucher to use, but the one to go to was packed. Teens lpving the shoes, one girl called them #fresh. So it was then back to the other McDonald's down by the market, that didn't help either. the kfc was a queue, so i decided to go to the casino.

a busy mcdonalds

That was nice to warm up and also i betted £5 and pretty much won 2 and lost 2 so it balanced out.
Then i went to try hubbox, since inds works there and maybe a £5 deal, so running up there was a plan.

Running up Royal Parade

Then i walked my way to the lovely north hill, with trying caffeine club but that was heaving with plenty of people i didn't know, that was a walk out or then. Shortly after i walked up to the clubs, switch was just drinkers, same with cuba, so it was up the hill and a passing in spar which had some bbws and deals on reduced stuff but a sit down in the warmth was a good way of doing tonight.

Getting to the lovely part of north hill which i still rememeber my life changed here

Up the hill again and it was to Mutley, with more of food choices, this time i looked at dominoes, which was ok but for a £5 deal, is a no go, which i'll just leave it to ordering for pics and dirty food diet cheating talk with ladies up north if i do instead of just eat.

Next was KFC, there was a queue but some beefed up guy was loving the shoes and might get himself a pair now. Then it was the premier and the classic sandwiches of the #crappycityplym days around. But then it was Goodbody's, with its lovely vibes and the staff loved the shoes, the rep was happy and said i could sit at a table and go back to order when ready,so by doing that, i ate a leftover hash brown and onion ring while it was there and type most of this up. its very long and hard with cold fingers in case you were guessing. But Goodbody's was not a choice so i ran to Crownhill, it took me under half hour and sore nipples but i did it and had to jaywalk on a slipway in between the lanes to help.

Looking back on a big view #throughglass

Finally made it to Mcdonalds 

As i was getting in, i saw usual staff, but this blonde with a vbo in her top and shaped trousers was amazing,,but this nice chap served me abd i ordered what i thought was a medium big mac no cheese meal but it was a large for £0.09 more, so that was mt choice, paid cash,,waited and it arrived.

The £5.10 large big mac meal

That was  ice to eat it and it was finished before the bus was supposed to arrive ay the stop outside, but i walked to the one by lfc, which i've not used much since that #crappycityplym days.
but the bus was late, i meant 20 minutes shivering and flirting with big cutie nova twitter and saying burger sauce or nutella was my favourite condiment to Housewifeswag.

The bus stop i never usally use these days

When bus arrived which was nearly 11:40pm, the doors opened, someone gott off then i walked on and the bus  driver asked if he could help me,  I showed him the ticket and said this saved me from having to run 3 hours 30 minutes or so home. The journey was quiet and time to finished typing this up which helps speed things up for ms a slight bit.
By 12:03, I was back in Tavi and it was time to finish off and run home, which in this nippy weather felt hard and my nipples were rubbing strongly against my classic night out hoodie.

The morrisons which meas i'm home 

Finally i was home, And I crashed out after a drink and it was catching up to get this and the vlog up, which I majorly kick myself for but that is that. And another event in my diary sorted. anyways review and possibly shopping birthday trip ia a new one to be soon
