Wow, what a weekend.

On Saturday I went to the Sheffield Furmeet with [livejournal.com profile] greyscar. The furmeet was great! I saw loadsa awesome people I hadn't seen in a while. We also had Nando's in the afternoon. :9

In the evening I went to Hull to spend sometime with [livejournal.com profile] foxb, [livejournal.com profile] wolfpawz, and [livejournal.com profile] orona_red. Cue a much awesome evening of drinking and hilarity!

Sunday was spent getting up late, having lunch at Chiquito's, spending an age getting back to Wakefield, and then installing Ubuntu on my lappy whilst watching Snatch.

Busy but fun. :)

I was going to go down to the Thunderbolt Black meet (in London) but due to unforeseen circumstances I need to be at most 1 hour away from home at any one time. Queue weekend long camping trip to Sowerby Bridge (near Halifax) with [livejournal.com profile] cavebearranting and [livejournal.com profile] exiledwolf.

I spent most of last night packing and managed to fit all of my gear, including some non-essentials, into my 3/4 size PLCE Bergen.

Kit list )

I'll be going after work this evening, meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] exiledwolf at Leeds train station at 7pm, and then head off to Sowerby Bridge to meet [livejournal.com profile] cavebearranting. I'll be back Sunday afternoon.

The campsite allows campfires! :D :D

EDIT: If anyone fancies coming along, just call me, send a text, or email me. I'll have access to all three over the weekend. :)

I arrived late to the meet today, around 14:30. [livejournal.com profile] greyscar came and found me at the station and took me to the meet venue, where I spent a few minutes talking to [livejournal.com profile] balto_mike and[livejournal.com profile] shep_shepherd before almost EVERYONE disappeared. There must have been about 10-12 of us left then which actually meant for an extremely pleasent meet. [livejournal.com profile] tr_wolf was there too!

After a Pizza Hut dinner [livejournal.com profile] greyscar gave me a lift home and went online for a few hours before bed.


Despite the rain [livejournal.com profile] greyscar came over and we went for a drive. We hit up Mitchells (aka Go Outdoors Wakefield) and got some camping gear for Download Festival. I got £99 worth of kit for £69, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] greyscar's discount card. :D
We also went to a few garden centres (including one upper class one where nearly all the plants were diseased!).

[livejournal.com profile] cavebearranting came over for a few hours in the morning, during which we chillaxed and Martin introduced him to State of Emergency, which he enjoyed.
In the afternoon [livejournal.com profile] cavebearranting went back to Leeds and Martin went with him for the night, so I had some rare time alone in the flat. Unfortunately I spent most of this time sleeping! x_x

And now we are at Tuesday. Only four more days till the weekend now! :D

Saturday: Working on the video some and [livejournal.com profile] cavebearranting came over in the evening. Was nice and relaxed. :)

Sunday: [livejournal.com profile] greyscar took me to York to meet some folks. Saw Lupe and met [livejournal.com profile] balto_mike and his craaazy flatmates! Talked to [livejournal.com profile] balto_mike about film/tv prodution (he's a film/tv production student) and he gave me a few pointers about how to improve my own stuff. :D

[livejournal.com profile] balto_mike also did a fun-run at York Racecourse in [livejournal.com profile] greyscar's fox fursuit and I was camera-man for the day. ^_^
[livejournal.com profile] balto_mike won "Best costume" and got a nice bottle of white wine as the prize. :D

Anyway, back in work today. This evening I'm going to blitz my laptop and reinstall a custom version of Windows XP home with the aid of nLite. Hopefully this will mean that my laptop will stop mucking about and I'll be able to work with it properly. I'm setting it up as a mobile editing station, seeing as I do a lot of it at Zac's place. It's certainly powerful enough [Spec sheet - PDF].

And that's it for now.

EDIT: I've decided to just do all of my video editing on my laptop now, leaving my desktop for general use (IMs, Browsing, Gaming, etc).

Well tonight I shall be heading over to the Snooty Fox after work to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] greyscar and [livejournal.com profile] avon_deer (hopefully [livejournal.com profile] rustyfox, [livejournal.com profile] foxbrush and [livejournal.com profile] huskypupp too) for drinks. I'm looking forward to this as it's been an age since we all went out for a drink, and the Fox is a very nice and relaxed place to drink at.

Tomorrow I shall be heading into Sheffield to see [livejournal.com profile] benore and [livejournal.com profile] bestiavolaticus and Sunday I'll be back in Sheffield to see [livejournal.com profile] steel_phoenix and Colin.

Full weekend. :3
