Not happy.


I can't believe you are demeaning the value of the Task GET!. I am at work and am unable to give anyone detailed feedback on their tasks. This in no way casts aspersions on your excellent report of your Day Away, rest assured! I am sure you will breeze through your seminar with consumate ease.


Forgiven. :wub:

Day Away (31st October)

- I started my day by leaving the flat about 10am, walked into the bus station and caught a bus to my mums house.
- I spent a considerable amount of time winding my dogs up and consequently my mum also.
- I played team fortress 2 with my brothers for quite a while, and didnt do too well for some reason.
- I got a bit bored eventually, started to miss my flat and ate loads of crap.
- Went to get my gf from the flat about 4pm by car, but I didnt go in 8-)
- We went back to my mums and played with the dogs again.
- Eventually we helped a bit with decorating the house for the halloween party.
- Then we started sorting out our costumes.
- By the time I was finished with my costume the party was underway about 7pm.
- Had a few drinks, ate a lot of marshmallows dipped in the chocolate fountain.
- Got into an escalated food fight with my brother. His weapon of choice, chocolate covered marshmallows. My weapon of choice, egg mayo sandwiches :twisted:
- After cleaning up and having a few more drinks it was time to move into town. My gf was ill so she got dropped off home on the way.
- Got into town, realised we (me and my brother) had gone to the wrong venue, so we walked about 10 minutes to the ACTUAL venue.
- Queued for what felt like a bloody lifetime and eventually got in.
- Found some friends we knew and stuck with them.
- Photos begin!:

Image
This is Hannah (left), Me (Middle) and my brother (right), taken on arrival.


Image
This was a futile attempt to capture me wiggling the tongue of my mask, WITH A PHOTO. :fp:


Image
This was Annies poor attempt of a very simple photo of me and Hannah.


Image
Then this is us actually doing it right xD


Image
Then Kayleigh arrived! About 2 hours after she said she was going to..


Image
Then I decided Id have a photo WITH my mask. As you do.


Image
Then I decided that my mask looked like a massive beard from behind. Dowbocop impersonations ensued 8-)


Image
Then Hannah joined in on the mask lovin' xD


Image
Then loads of people turned up, including Banjo in his link costume :o


- After meeting up with a load of people, dancing until my feet hurt and not spending a penny on drink, it was time to leave when the club closed at 4am.
- Said my goodbyes to everyone and parted ways.
- We tried to catch a taxi home but no one was 'going that way' (Since when was it their choice?).
- We walked in the pouring rain back to the flat. Took about 30 - 45 minutes.
- Saw an old friend on the way home, had a little chat but the pouring rain made me want to leave so I did.
- Finally got into the warmth of my flat about 5:30am.
- Stripped and went to sleep immediately.

Task Get? (With bonus points?)

Librarial

I span around in a circle with my eyes closed and I got this pretty nifty book.

Image


You Bet

On the way to the library I conveniently spotted a William Hill, I popped in on the way back and put a quid on Joe Mcsomething to win X Factor.

Task Get's?

Did this yesterday. Span around, then ran my finger along the bookshelf to find Sultans of Spin by Nicholas Jones. I only realised the irony of this today :lol:

Currently building up the courage to go out to the park which will no doubt be infested with scumbag hoodies and do my water slide task.

Mocky, does the 'tablecloth trick' count for the Secret Task?

I did The Mirror as well.

I slid down a slide today on my way home from work. I had to do it quickly as there were some chavs circling about.

I've found the slide that I shall use. Going to turn it into a waterslide though. Still have a few days left where I can drive my car (tax ran out beginning of the week) so will be able to drive back home after watersliding instead of walking back all wet.

There was a scary man in the park. I mean proper scary - he was sitting against a wall chanting something over and over again. I heard the chant from quite far away and thought it was a recording coming from some park speakers, then as I got closer I saw a...form...in the shadows. Seriously, it was strawberry floating terrifying! Nightmares are en route... :(

Did my slide, squeezing a water bottle behind me. Water element was also augmented by a pool of rainwater at the bottom. Task GET!?

I believe that's me all done. Final summary post and concluding statements on my past two months' tasking tomorrow...

Task GET! (with bonus points)

I think I've been rather lenient with this pouring water down the slide as you slide thing for those bonus points :lol: On the one hand, it cracks me up to think of you all pouring water down a slide as you slide. It's quite surreal in fact. :lol:

On the other hand, it's not quite the same as going down an actual water slide at a water park/swimming pool, so I'm not sure what you're actually getting out of the exercise. After all, these tasks are supposed to in some way enrich your lives with new/different experiences. And while going down a slide revists your youth, I don't know what pouring water down a slide as you slide achieves, other than creating a bizarre situation that you can tell the grandkids about. Hmm, actually, that's quite cool.

Still, you will all get your bonus points. But I think I will use this as a learning exercise and be slightly (and I mean very slightly) less lenient in Tasks 2010 when it comes to bonus points (not the actual tasks, I think it's good to be fairly lenient with those as everyone has different situations and circumstances that may constrict their approaches to certain tasks).

(Water) Slide complete.

Went down to the park during the day so wouldn't be inturrupted by any children (who are all at school, innit). I pull up in my car just outside of the park. Sit there and wait for the only person in the area (walking his dog) to leave. Then make my move.

Grabbing my 2 litre Pepsi bottle (filled with tap water) I run across the grass, over the little fence and to the slide. Take off my coat and climb the steps of the slide. Open the bottle and start pouring water down the slide (which was already rather wet because of last nights rain). Then I slide down it while still pouring water behind me as I do so. Wet arse and a soaked T-shirt.

Put my coat back on and leg it back to the car. Drive home and get changed out of my wet clothes. Just realised I left the bottle at the scene of the crime.

Week Eight

The Mirror
This is covered in A Day Away.

Librarial
Image

strawberry float!
At another library, I span my way to Sultans of Spin by Nicholas Jones.

Slide
There was a scary man in the park. I mean proper scary - he was sitting against a wall chanting something over and over again. I heard the chant from quite far away and thought it was a recording coming from some park speakers, then as I got closer I saw a...form...in the shadows. Seriously, it was strawberry floating terrifying! Nightmares are en route... :(

You Bet
Again, this is covered in A Day Away

A Day Away
The first thing I did was go into town to place a bet on the derby. Task GET!?
Image

I then went to the pub to watch the game.
Image

Yeah 8-)
Image

Back off into town again to collect my winnings, get lunch, and do some Halloween shopping.
In Forbidden Planet, where my mate bought some comics.
Image

This was where we were going to eat, but they had no free green tea and we didn't have time to sit in and eat, so we got a burger.
Image

This was a shot when I was in the queue for Smiffy's. It encapsulates my boredom sufficiently.
Image

I fell over a bollard on my way to my mate's house, but the photo of it didn't come out well.
Image

My girlfriend met us at my mate's house, and we went out for dinner.
Image

A picture of my winnings (not the actual money I was handed by the Ladbrokes man as I had to spend it on stuff in town and was too rushed to sit down and take the picture, but it's representative of the exact amount I won).
Image

My Halloween costume, I was Arthur Dent.
Image

While we're at it, let's have us another task, eh?
My hair is awesome.
My beard is quite short at the minute, but still amazing.
I have a smile on my face most of the time.
I've lost some weight recently.
Farewell to Highbury wristband 8-)

I have some wrinkles.
I can see my contact lenses, reminding me that my vision is less than perfect.
I could hit the weights a bit more often (I've had that dressing gown since I was twelve, so maybe I should bulk out a bit more :lol: :fp: )

Task GET!?

Photos aren't amazing of the night out, as my phone doesn't like the dark. Here's the best one, of a bloke who looks like Joer.
Image

Back to the house with a takeaway. All in all, a good day :D
