The Grand
Didn't go see the band in Hythe last night, did the quiz at The Grand instead. It's an easy one, so though we did quite well, we didn't do well enough. We dropped six questions out of 36, two on our vital joker round, so no meal for four prize for us.

I think that's the first local pub I've been in since the smoking ban came in, I was wondering how much business migh suffer, but it seems to have had no effect there. They might be making a bit more of an effort to push the bar food, or it might be just coincidence that more people were eating, looked quite good anyway.

Off to Canterbury in a bit, and was planning to write up more of my holiday and go through the photos and video... however am being distracted a bit by new music, new to me anyway, just got the new Travis album The Boy With No Name, last year's Standing At The Edge Of Control by The Gossip, and also Eric Cartman's Sailing Away. I thought I used this song when I made my compilation CD for driving around the country on tour, but I messed up and picked something else, which we then had to listen to lots of times as I only brought one CD. Here's the tracklist anyway;

Holidays In The Sun - The Sex Pistols
One Hand - David Devant & His Spirit Wife
Lazy Line Painter Jane - Belle and Sebastian
In the Navy - Village People
Da Doo Ron Ron (When He Walked Me Home) - The Crystals
A Rainy Night In Soho - The Pogues
You've Got A Friend - James Taylor
Sail Away - Randy Newman
All These Things That I've Done - The Killers
Radio Ga Ga - Queen
Enter Sandman - Metallica
Gambler - Kenny Rogers
American Pie - Don McLean
You're Nobody till Somebody loves you - Dean Martin

Aren't I just the best DJ?

Possibly some spare time to go through some holiday snaps before heading to Canterbury for lunch, mmm Wagamama...
