    Default Ten things I learned when some folk came to hang out for a while at GLHQ innit

    1. Ben is still the undisputed king of the "Stealth One Liner"
    2. Victor's t-shirt burns the fuck out of my eyes
    3. The Batman t-shirt I gave Victor makes him look like one of those guys from the "Gay Chat" adverts
    4. Ed eats more than any person I have ever met in my life... like, constantly.
    5. Pete is able to predict a sunny day for a barbecue and be totally and utterly wrong
    6. It's entirely possible to barbecue in the pissing rain when Pete holds a fucking huge picnic umbrella over me AND the barbecue
    7. Gamers eat so much fucking shit, it's unbelievable
    8. Zero is way WAY better at Arkham Asylum than Victor is, and I like to shit stir
    9. Lee has a direct line to an electrical support group for when fuse boxes keep tripping
    10. I can't count
    11. Lee's controller is much heavier than everyone elses, even if he doesn't believe us
    12. Someone farted earlier and almost fucking killed me, but nobody owned up
    13. Someone else, or perhaps the same person, farted again and it was worse this time
    14. Billy Mitchell is even more of a cunt than I first thought, seriously... it's possible!
    15. Awesomeburgers continue to be awesome
    16. Ben knows way too much about how gaming works, and it spoils his gaming
    17. Pete's fire poi is worth waiting for, and sounds awesome
    18. Victor can chest press 70kg and leg press 140kg
    19. A horse is a horse, of course, of course
    20. Lorna is an angel for looking after me when I choke on my vomit
    21. There aren't enough get-togethers
    Oooooooh it's an invisible signature... oooooooooh!!
    "If you want me to 'act professional', I can tell you that I'm not interested. I'm sitting in my home office wearing a bathrobe. The same way I'm not going to start wearing ties, I'm *also* not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords. Because THAT is what 'acting professionally' results in: people resort to all kinds of really nasty things because they are forced to act out their normal urges in unnatural ways."

    Ten things huh.
    1. Mark and Lorna have a house so vast that when two folk stay over unexpected, they can still have their own room.
    2. Crysis 2 on the PC on its highest settings is the greatest thing I have ever seen.
    3. Ed has not seen any of the Star Trek films and should watch them quickly before he is burned at the stake.
    4. Ben can somehow set up an achievement on the forum within the space of 3 or 4 minutes using some kind of technopathic link to the forums.
    5. Lee Williams can think with portals.
    6. Victor does not like being hit in Arkham Asylum
    7. I have honestly lost count how many is this?
    8. I shouldnt have done this in quick reply, I cant look through them.
    9. Pete is some kind of fire juggling ninja.
    10. I should have gone to the meet last year, missed so much!
    Do or do not. There is no try.
    - Yer maw

    Oh, and MarkuzR is not wrong. That T-shirt does make me look like one of those male models for gay chatlines.

    -Well, megabus. Get what you pay for.
    -It's apparently such a bad thing that you mentioned it twice
    -I didn't think Vic would take pictures of them!

    What I Learnt:
    -Everyone is really mean! Not even threatening to blog about them on myspace will stop them! =[
    -Ben and Lee should form a team called justbigben and kick some arse!
    -Lorna is the only person who will fall for my sad face.
    -Apparently I'm neither cute nor lovable, and no one told me. =[
    -Lorna also makes kickass cake and tarts and wears a cool top hat and draws cocks on everything.
    -Chief singing about chimpanzees puts a stupidly big smile on my face.
    -He's also still a kickass chef.
    -I can wear sunglasses in the dead of night and no one will question it...
    -...but they will question me being barefoot.
    -It's a good thing I didn't commit to ten of these!
    -Reading tweets about the PSN being down is a really easy source of laughs.
    -You can notice the moment when peoples' hearts break.
    -Pete's going to get me for all the coke I stole from him.
    -Everyone will try and make me jump playing games.
    -When I get out of the shower everyone but Lee will be gone and I'll walk in on a massive spoiler. Oops.
    -Apparently it's really weird that I don't watch porn.
    -Some cheeky fucker hasn't asked if I saw what they did yet, and where I put it before I left
    -It was amazing getting away from Hollyoaks.
    -I didn't want to leave.
    -I can't wait for the writer's meet!

    I might try and figure out some more...

    • The railway will conspire to ruin as many journeys as possible over the weekend. Everyone who travelled by train was dicked around, and not in a good way.
    • Yeats was right. "Things fall apart, the centre cannot hold. Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world..." the Destroyer was destroyed at Batman by Zero. We laughed. And then filmed it.
    • Ben likes cheese and trains. A LOT.
    • There WILL be a quiz on Rocky IV
    • Fire poi make eerie noises
    • Setting fire to the lawn was a great idea in theory...
    • Fire extinguishers with German instructions suck balls. Even more so when they don't work.
    • Despite watching hundreds of cartoons demonstrating the folly of such actions, I looked at the nozzle of the primed fire extinguisher while I re-read the instructions. It still didn't work.
    • Easter eggs don't travel well
    • But they taste fine
    • The only Scottish people in our house in Scotland were Zero and Markuz. We burned them. Not really.
    • Train Simulator has over 750 quid worth of DLC. What the fuck. Who is buying this stuff?
    • With Ben and Lee collab-ing on Portal 2 maps expect smart design tempered with absolute lunacy. And robot dinosaurs with Zombie DLC.
    • 'Magnetta' would be a great supervillain to rival Mark. He would have a certain coloured cape...
    • We know what you broke. You monsters.
    • Split screen co-op on Portal 2 is brutal.
    • Pete needs to hide his coke
    • Lee has Superman pyjamas.
    • If Telltale Games were a person, Ed would marry them. They would fall for the puppy look too.
    • Shops that don't stock Cote Du Rhone are rascist.
    • King of Kong was surprisingly good. Steve Weibe, as lovely as he was, should still have chinned Billy Mitchell.
    • Ben should award himself a forum prankster award... that's the second time now...
    • Speedy thing goes in, speedy thing comes out... and hits a wall before falling to its death if your name is Lee or Ed.
    • Ben's shake of the head, along with a muttered "console gamers" was priceless, along with his and Zero's expressions as Ed and Lee butchered the Portal 2 co-op.
    • Ben and Lee spent a lot of time huddled over the iPad... we suspect that they were plotting world domination, possibly involving a mutated version of Train Simulator, with Portals for wheels... coming soon to PSN near you.
    • Sony crashing and burning is ideal humour fodder for a weekend chock with gamers.
    • The cake wasn't a lie.
    • Justbiglee's Big Adventure is to exit development hell and re-emerge as a board game.
    • 'Low Res' is the gamers' patois for Clueless's 'Monet' observation.
    A corner of this foreign field that is for ever England
