Londonage

On this past Saturday I ventured to the abscesses of England, to London. Essentially this trip was to see the mighty David Gilmour at the Albert hall, but I also decided to pay a visit to an old army-buddy (Well, I say “old army-buddy”: a Uni-mate in his early twenties) called Cunzy11.Anyway the roster for the trip was as follows:Make it to London.Find Cunzy11Drink AlcoholPurchase/Drink a Cosmopolitan with a Straight face.See David Gilmour.Break into the Big Brother house.Get home.Step 1: Make it to London.First off: there was no fucking way I was travelling to the depths of England in a bus for like a Million hours so, I bought some of the bog-standard internet flight tickets from Glasgow to London.

Due to the overwhelming success of our previous blogs we have decided to collaborate in order to bring you the latest reasons why Richie is a homo who is pretty bad at games. Enjoy
