    OK, well it's not quite night here yet, per se. Not even afternoon...

    But I have no intention of staying in tonight posting on MR. What are you up to tonight? Or rather, what do you really wish you were up to tonight?

    FFS. The weekend starts here.

    Is Friday over-rated as a going-out night? What about Saturday? Or is Tuesday the new Friday? Sunday the new Saturday?

    I'm lonely.

    Well, actually, it's 3:38 am and I am busy posting in another forum. Something funny is going down and I want to be a part of it. :D

    And here's me having the generous thought that you may be actually doing some work in between posts here... :p

    Well, it's Friday morning here. Early in the morning. I most definitely won't be here Friday night. I'll be going out to trip the light fantastic. Actually not so much myself, but my son. I've volunteered to help clean up after the dance at his middle school tonight :rolleyes:

    I'm on some heavy penicillin and are not going anywhere today or tonight... ;)

    Not sure I'm going to be reading/posting too much here, I'm trying to get some relative computer-free R&R... :eek:

    On the other hand, if I get a bit better, resting might be too boring, in which case I'm back online... :D

    I'll be out for a few drinks tonight. Tomorrow night, not sure yet... might just be boring and stay in and watch the fireworks from my roof terrace.

    I feel the need for a "tame" weekend... not like the last one! I'm getting too old... can't keep up with these youngsters... :eek: :p ;)

    Tonight I will continue my fiancee's introduction to the Star Wars universe. We watched A New Hope last night, so tonight is Empire. I am just glad that I finally convinced her to watch them in order of theatrical release. That way she may be just as excited about III as I was. Then she can be just as disappointed. :(

    You guys really need to keep up. I've already had my Friday night drinks. They were okay but we've all got exams coming up over the next few weeks so they finished kinda early (it's 10:30).

    I find Friday nights are always full of old people who've just finished work and are having a few drinks. Thursdays and Saturdays are more my seen. :)



    Oh, and I also didn't want to miss out on that thing Lacero mentioned. ;)

    It's 7AM and I'm about to go to school :D

    Code 79 (excused from class) all day!! Our video department is taping a live debate for Mayoral Candidates and then I volunteered to help out with the Muscular Distrophy Association's raise money and then be on teams and compete in a field day thinger. Then back to the studio to edit all night.

    Yeah, I'm a other-nights-going-out kinda girl. Friday nights in Bath (and many other cities) are full of noisy irritating people. I enjoy:
    1. being able to get a drink at the bar in less than 45 minutes
    2. having a conversation that doesn't involve screaming in each other's ears
    3. getting a seat in a pub in order to have said conversation
    4. not getting punched in the face or thrown up on on the way home

    I think I must be getting old. I used to go out all the time, and now I don't nearly as often.

    I do go out on some Fridays and Saturdays, but tend to enjoy it much less. Thursdays round here are a good night to go out on, there's usually a few bands on if you don't fancy just going for a pint.

    Tonight I'm going to a friend's house with a load of people to watch Napoleon Dynamite and have some wines. :D

    Friday night's, hmmmm, might fly down to Rio in my lear jet, might stay in at the palace and watch the guard change.

    Anythings better than Coronation Street and a dodgy takeaway.

    I've got friends over tonight, might get a bit rowdy... (them I mean).

    Damn. That's a spot on summary of what my Friday night will be :eek:

    It's because both me and my girlfriend are exhausted after a hard weeks' work...no really. *hangs head in embarrassment that other people actually have social lives*

    My best friend from college is back in town(he graduated) and i haven't seen him since we went abroad together. He called me and left a voicemail only saying, "Hey its Matt I'm coming out this weekend and I hope your ready" So I'm assuming I'm getting hammered tonight at one of the local dirty campus bars.

    You have a point, but the alternative is often Changing Rooms or Wife swap or one of a whole raft of cheap, crap reality shows.

    I love the quality of UK TV.

    Good job we've got friends and multi-tap controllers for the PS2....

    Pro-evolution tournament anyone?

    I've got to admit I've been sucked in to it. On the outside I pretend I don't like it, but really I find it quite entertaining.

    Still not a reason to stay in on a Friday night though. :mad:

    Nooooooooooooooooooo!!!!! :eek: they can't do that?!!
    Dammit. I even worked for them for a while - and this is how they repay me?
    (hehe i'm not addicted to the stuff, just a silly (unfortunate) choice of name i made a while ago and it kinda stuck)


    Don't get me started on UK TV.... too much to rant about!

    I normally can't stand soaps... but right now Phil and Grant are back in Eastenders and it's *mildly* entertaining :eek: *buries head in shame*

    As are their real lives - both actors have been smacked around in the last day by their partners.

    A cynic might suggest that no publicity is bad publicity, but then I'm not a cynic...
