Anyway. Sin.
Have something filthy for lunch?
Pint at lunch?
Kill a man?

Not sure what sort of level sin we're talking...

The BA reference takes me to the manage my booking page, which prompts a message telling me to check in online at QR and provides me with the reference number for QR. The QR page accepts the reference number but won't let me check in online /error message.

Somehow, somewhere in the process, my name is turned into gibberish so my first name is now simply HK and I can't reset it.

I'm sure it'll be fine at the airport tonight. I do have the e-ticket number. But it's airlines and flights and bookings and that always fills one with dread.

As for sin I was really thinking more of a vice. Drugs? Booze? Cigs? Food? But the desire has passed, thankfully.

Nightmare. I hate things like that, end up getting to airport extra early to find it's fine. Such is.

Have a beer and a burner for lunch.

I'm still off the smokes during the day, which is good. Got to get to the next step which is off them mid week evenings. Then I'm just a social smoker. Then I'll work on that.

No cigs in...... nearly 8 months now. Fortune spent on vape shit tho. Have now got to the building my own coils stage. I think if I gave it a concerted effort I could probably knock vaping on the head too.

Booze wise i'm drinking too much on the weekends and need to reduce. Still gonna head out for a few tonight tho.

Signed up to this Tough Mudder bollocks in Dec so going to have to start getting fit (ter) sooner or later.

Well, not quite true. Spicy food for me is something to be experienced at the right place at the right time. Like a curry in a hot, steamy, tropical clime with a ice cold beer. Not an everyday occurrence.

Can't see that happening at the Bengali on Skye.

There's some really weird fetishes you're hiding from us, isn't there, Millhouse? And I say this as someone who's probably seen too much that's good for him.

How much is too much?
How much is not enough?

Not worth worrying about mate.

The only sinful part of that is watching daytime TV.

One's too many and a hundred's not enough. But that only applies to women (number thereof).

Last weekend was Thurs night after work until about 1:30, decent night with a nice buzz. Friday brunch (Coya) followed straight after by a Metro stop pub crawl stag do. Saturday was a brunch in The Red Lion followed by beers during 2 games of football. I'd already taken Sunday off in prep. Monday was horrible too.

For me that's too much.
