Not ded, just busy

Sorry about the silence – I have MADE IT THROUGH E3 WEEK! E3 is the massive games convention in Los Angeles, and was held last week. All the new videogames are there, a lot of the big news comes out then... and I had a 68-page E3 supplement deadline on Friday, and the main mag deadline for Official PlayStation yesterday. That meant a couple of evenings working, and not much time to do anything interesting.

Mr Robot and I did go for a long, very drunken, tapas crawl on Saturday. It was a good way to clear my head. We'd come into Bath for The Vintage Home Show, and had a poke round all the beautiful furniture and homewares on offer. We didn't see anything that really fitted in with our house, though that's to be expected as ours is more 'Victorian explorer' than anything else. (We thought we might find plates or kitchenware, but nothing shrieked 'Buy me!') Anyway, once we'd seen that we decided to stay in the city, and it turned out Pintxo has a lovely little courtyard out the back, with flamenco music playing. We couldn't neglect dropping into Ole Tapas, and then Tapas Revolution was right by the train station... This is why 'tapear', to go for tapas, is a Spanish verb!

  2. Ha ha - a clear head after a drunken tapas crawl? Explain what the secret is please...I found my hangovers got worse the older I got so I rarely drink now!

  3. Glad to hear you survived. On the positive side-you didn't have to be in LA. Some people like it, I guess.

    A drunken tapas crawl sounds marvelous. I hope you are getting some well-earned rest now, and enjoying the heatwave (unless it has already started raining in which case, you'll be enjoying the relief from the heatwave).

  6. Pissed-up tapas on a sunny day sounds like my kind of day out.
    Glad you survived E3. xxx
