First off we get a new version of vBulletin, nice new layout, extra features and something else to get used to
Then, out of the blue I get an e-mail from a friend who hasn't been in touch for two years! Relieved to hear he's OK. He returned to Hawaii at the end of 2007 and was having a hell of a job getting settled. Bottom line he learned was don't rely on people who make promises they can't keep..
The same afternoon I get another mail from a friend in Singapore who comes over on business every year or two and always makes time to go out and have a few large ones! He'll be arriving Sunday morning and am I free to go boozing in the evening! I'd made plans to go to an Oktoberfest on Saturday and didn't really want to spend a lot on both days. Luckily, one friend who I arranged to meet at the fest could also make it on Sunday, so I'll take my buddy down to Yokohama for the fest! It'll be something different than our usual routine of a smoky izakaya and dai-jokis
It's Thursday morning and I hope there are no more surprises in store! I'm knackered already!
