I've Been Tired.

........... Really tired. I could barely move last night. I'd had a bit of a night on wednesday I suppose. Ostensibly I had gone to the local boor pit to meet some work chums and watch a game of football, but it became something of an exercise in anthropology.............With cheap beer. As a devout follower of the Maryhill Magyars, the clash between Manchester Utd and Celtic was really of little significance to me but I decided to go along anyway. The economy booze being one of the deciding factors...... Anyway, I watched the game. Quite enjoyed it actually, loads of goals and plenty of saddo Celtic fans trying to put a brave face on the fact that the gods simply weren't on their side that night. My old pal Mullaney told it like it was by stomping out in a huff. The rest acted like Scotland fans at the world cup and celebrated in glorious defeat. Fuck that! I did enjoy a bit of banter with Brian, a Kilmarnock fan. This was more my territory. Discussing the things that really matter like why his landlord has three thumbs, why it would be great to bionically enhance great footballers we once had playing for us and of course exchanging song-books. He seemed to be most amused by 'Mary From Maryhill'. Who wouldn't be?

Jings!!!

Just a quick update. Mr Clairwil says he has never burst a party hat. When he was a child in the olden days they couldn't afford them (rationing,I expect). By the time they could get their hands on party hats he was too grumpy to wear one.

Nice photo!

Clairwil, you'll probably find that he's quite right. It's the fact I keep bursting them that makes me grumpy.

Cheers Sandra. Which one? They're both in the 'quite good' category I think.

Sorry for being unspecific! I do like them both but I like the second one more. The light/colours/reflections/water please me muchly.

I've seen the bottom shot on the screen at work and I can appreciate it's appeal. On the banjaxed old piece of crap I have at home it comes out a bit murky and non-descript though. I think they work well together though.

Are these shots of North Berwick?

They are Trane. In fact, any recent seaside shots i've posted will be North Berwick. Theres some on 'The Gyp' too, just beneath Clairwil's Krakow report.
