An observation and one reason why I like Russia.

I ask for a Long Island Ice Tea. The guy fills 4/5 of a pint glass with spirits and 1/5 with pepsi. Charges me 4.
In England, the country with the smallest fucking measures in the world, they'd fill 1/5 of a pint with spirits and 4/5 with pepsi and then charge me 6+ for the disgraceful excuse for a drink. I must admit that I'm a little drunk from 2 of them and totally ashamed of how shit bars are in the UK.



The last time I went out in the UK, I drank 5 Long Islands and could probably go and operate heavy machinary and pass a breathalyser test without problems. The reason I stopped at 5 was because I'd totally run out of money to pay the extortionate prices for a quantity of alcohol which wouldn't even get a fucking 5 year old drunk.

I was in the midst of cleaning and I found a trygon kit. Full kit. Opened but untouched.

I kid you not, this is the third time this has happened in the last few years, and the third time it has been a trygon.

EDIT: There's also a carnifex now, a squad of necron warriors and a whole lot of gaunts.

I don't understand. Do you live in a model store or do you just bulk buy models and forget all about them?

I just buy one off kits now and then with some intent for now or for later. It is not uncommon for me to forget them after a week if I haven't built them by then.

Just last night I found enough parts to cobble together three wraiths minus the bladed limbs up top on one of them. But there was another three half empty sprues, so I poached the extra limbs off them.

I recall why I had the first three, but not the second three.

I'm not drinking alcohol for a couple of weeks, so I thought I'd punish my body in other ways.
My flatmate and I managed to eat half of the burger. Although the last few bites almost killed me. 1.5kg of MEAT (excluding bacon)
