Things not to do up a mountain - Part II
Today was interesting. First there was a phonecall from TNT saying "we have this parcel for you", "How lovely I reply - please hold it until next week and do not burgle me in my absence".

Then I got up a mountain. First couple of runs were fine, then I got a headache, my right hand felt detached and numb and I completely lost my command of the english language.

I followed this up by taking some painkillers, coming down the mountain and spending the afternoon asleep.

Rock'n'roll.

Next week I seem to be planning to spend most of it in Nottingham. I'm assured this won't be as bad as it sounds.

Minor stroke or just lack of oxygen? Was the English replaced by newfound German fluency?

Reasonably confident it was just the altitude. Still not a pleasant experience.

Only time I've suffered from altitude sickness, I discovered later was almost certainly the hangovers.

Agreed - the headache element was very similar. The only thing that makes me think it's not booze is the fact I've not had any for over a month!

Ah, whereas, on that particular skiing holiday, I was rooming with an Aussie. Every pint had a double Jaegermeister attached, and then we played drinking games for extra Jaegermeisters. Ooo, my poor head.

Rock n roll indeed :/
I've lived in Nottingham for the past 4 years. Hate the place with a passion but work's too good for me to leave :( If you want to meet up for a drink, just gimme a shout :)

I'm up Monday for Rammstein, Friday for a gig and (prob) Sat for Nightmare. Would be great to meet up - Fri or Sat likely to be best if you're about, or if not some other time for sure.

Thanks for reminding me :-)

Unrelated: Do you do requests?

Yes. We must plan the 2006 calendar in any case. We'll sort something out when I'm back - but in the meantime surf the web for the kind of shots you like etc.

Hey! Wassup with Nottingham?

Nothing - just the M42 there and back each time.

You're quite welcome to crash over you know?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: February 4th, 2005 07:10 am (UTC) (Link)
I know :-) It's just that on Saturday I have to get up early, do an OU tutorial, then play LAN games for hours, then get back to Nottingham.

Are you coming to the SBA gig on Friday? Can you help me get there?!
berrega From: berrega Date: February 4th, 2005 09:41 am (UTC) (Link)
I will be going, yes.

Is there mileage in me coming to you on Friday, leaving the car at yours, then public-transporting in and back? Or were you considering late-night shenanigans?
berrega From: berrega Date: February 4th, 2005 08:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
Not planning a particually late nhight on Friday as I am djing Saturday.

Besides I won't be touching the car over the weekend, so I'll move it up the drive and you can use my drive as you need it.

We need you round here at some point soon to talk to BG.

I tried to be you this morning but couldn't pull of the cutting Sarcasm or lack of sincerity and the guy left telling me he needs the house owner to do his stuff with.

Just tell me what to do/say. I'll try and catch up with you on MSN etc. on Sunday.
