Sunday

Arrived rather late, no body cared, shows how important this crumby job is. Got into work cut-out the articles from Today’s newspaper, filled the paperwork and passed them to the photo tray for someone to resize which I can’t do because I’ve still not been given photoshop.

Steve not in during the day, he did pop in during the evening to check on how things were going, we had a rather good system, Tony and Andy doing the paperwork, I was ripping the articles out and hoppo was doing the image resizing and passing on to whomever was available to put the article online.

During this little conveyor belt of workforce co-ordination Tony graciously offered to buy everyone working a round of “99’s” under the premise that ‘his house is paid for’. Must be marvellous to be able to do that on a whim, certainly going to try to do that when I get a job.

I’ve finished the resources page generator for the SSAGO, its been long overdue but its one of those tasks I’ve left till my 2007-8 term of office so there will be a real contrast between what’s been achieved in one compared to the other.

On the SSAGO website there is someone from Coleraine (Ireland) that wants to join a SSAGO Club. This poses some interesting opportunities for the Exec, there hasn’t been a club in Ireland from a fair few years now and if one can be setup they can be used as a shining example to other Irish Universities to get themselves going. Possibly opens the likelihood of a purpose to go there, I mean if I’m going to go on a plane Ireland isn’t my first thought.

Yesterday in the evening I was happily in the mood for a Guinness but Nick deterred me with the satire comment that “I must be feeling rich” but today with the realisation that I only had 5 tokens left it made more sense to spend them all rather than have 1 left over.

I managed to swap one of my UK Contingent Pins for one of the American World Scout Jamboree pins, I was beginning to think that I wouldn’t get to trade any of them and that I had wasted my money ordering them in the first place!

After we’d had some of Bart’s Birthday cake and Jess and I had both finished our drinks we head-off for Harbour sub-camp to see her old friend and my relatively (we only met at EuroJam 2005) new friend Merry AKA Lisa. It was dark when we arrived but luckily there was a lighthouse on the main entrance to guide us in! They had a mentalist, or at least some sort of person doing thinking stuff to the watching participants, I much prefer this sort of entertainment to what we’ve had so far, it seems more…intimate the audience are far better involved in the act than just spectating. We eventually found ERIC, Essex R.I.C something or other where Merry and her group were staying.

  1. You were hysterical at playing Jenja that evening… our international collegues took that game so seriously in terms of taking different moves with the greatest possible care!
