Paint balling.


On Saturday I have to go paint balling. It will be a laugh all right but I am not desperately looking forward to it as I am unashamedly bad at this sort of thing. I will probably end up shooting myself as I trip over a particularly flat bit of ground. My mate Walshy will be pretty good and Bag who can edge him at Quake might be even better.

I rang up my mate Andy McNab and he has popped round this morning to lend me the pictured clobber and to advise me on a few moves over tea and toast here in BS5. This is me, Bag and Walshers in our kit taking a look up the road. As ever in a hostage/CQB/Quake situation, I am on the end looking at a smart bridge or a lorry trundling past whilst Bag and Walshy have the main target absolutely covered mid-mid and high left. It does not bode well for paint ball.

Personally I am looking forward much more to the hazards and danger of the output of St James' Gate, Dublin but we shall see.

On a much more mundane note and with my feet still on the ground for work, this morning I have to conclude my sanitary product negotiations with an unfairly attractive national account manager. Great laugh.

I can't wait to hear about your weekend! Too funny about that sanitary napkin rep. It woud be more interesting if she was good looking but maybe that job description doesn't attract the lovelies.
