Don't they sometimes reduce the fine if you pay it within x days? Or is that parking tickets?
I would also recommend drinking excessively, as 25 is a pretty nice number.
I don't have prejudice, I hate everyone equally.
Wow insurance companies charge you more based on whether you've lost points? Here its only if you have an accident, I think everyone has lost points here That said we have cameras fucking everywhere and you get fined for going as little as 4kph over the limit.
Off to see Avenue Q soon, not sure what it'll be like but gf wanted to go so I'm being dragged along.

want to get laid tonight, but if this heat doesn't let up I don't think I'll have the energy
I'm too fat for this weather
Keep seeing 'Davonport' as Devonport. Idiot brain of mine. Strolled up to Berry head again. So clear you can all the way to the otherside of Lyme Bay. Thankfully couldnt see France today, as that would spoil the view.
Just left work, time for a nice beer garden afternoon/night
Had a great night out last night and found my new favourite bar: The Earl. Six of us went, basically our flat group for next year, along with Sam's girlfriend, Kelly. Kelly also knows Perry from Wales, since they went to the same college, so her coming along didn't make things awkward.
Night started with a meal at a nice Italian place called Enzo. Had the house soup for starter and a pizza with prawns, clams, tuna and anchovies, made into a calzone, all accompanied by a bottle of Pinot Grigio. Would have preferred a Chenin Blanc, but I went halves on a bottle with Perry and he wasn't keen on buying a bottle of wine he had never tried before. Meal came to £130 between six.
Then went onto The Earl, a cocktail bar next to a club, owned by said club. Started off with a martini concoction that the bar had come up with, but when I went up for my second drink, I asked whether they could do a simple vodka martini off the menu. The bar tender, a cute but cool guy called Sam, said he couldn't do a dirty martini, to which I said: 'That's fine. I'll take it extra dry, stirred not shaken with a lemon twist.'
He was gobsmacked that I knew what I was talking about; apparently I was the first person he had served in two years that knew how he wanted his martini, though I do suspect that may have been a lie, just to get us to feel special and buy more drinks. But I couldn't really care. It's a bar tenders job to make you feel welcome and entertained and if that causes you to buy a drink you wouldn't have initially bought, does it really matter?
He double checked whether I wanted it extra dry, since he doesn't know how anyone can stomach an extra dry martini, and then went ahead making it.
When I went up for my third drink, along with Perry and Kelly, despite there being about 15 people waiting to be served, he came over to us to ask whether I was after the same and I told him I now wanted two, one for me, one for Perry. He finished serving his current customers and then went straight onto us, saving us what looked like a 20 minute wait. That's when he made the mistake of saying that he makes the perfect Vesper Martini and we warned him that our next round would be a pair of them.
Same happened when we went up for our fourth round; large queue and he came straight to us. Since I had never had a Vesper Martini before, I took his recommendations and had it shaken, rather than stirred, with a mix of dry and extra dry martini and a lemon twist. Sure, it doesn't follow the mixture outlined by James Bond to the letter, but the drink was beautiful. And he put it through the till as a standard vodka martini, so it only came to £9 each, so I gave him a £20 and told him to keep the change.
We left at around 2am and headed to McDonalds, I had a chicken and bacon wrap, and then we took the bus back to uni. I was certainly drunk, but not so drunk that I couldn't control myself and when someone decided to say: 'SPLIFF!', I was torn on the idea for fear of ruining a good evening with a three hour long vomiting session. But I rolled one anyway. If I couldn't stomach it, I would pass it on to someone else, since the weed was free (bought two ounces of a mixture of peng for £400 a few days ago and ended up selling 42 out of the 56 grams for a tenner a gram, leaving me with 14 grams and £20 profit).
Sam, Kelly and Jordan ended up going back to their flats, so we invited Alex (not the German one) over; Perry had no weed, so rolled one using Josh's and Alex had already rolled one earlier but gone to sleep before smoking it. He ended up waking up to come over and get high with us, which was nice of him. And I did end up passing my joint with a third left when the room started to spin, but things soon started to subside again and another joint found it's way into my hand shortly later.
Josh and Alex wanted a kebab and burger from the kebab van, so they went off, leaving me and Perry to play BF3, before returning and rolling another joint each. I just happened to find myself curled up in Josh's bed at that perfect level of both drunkenness and highness, which made anything stupidly hilarious and everything happy and positive. But then I realised I needed to get up and move or I'd fall to sleep there, only to be waken up and kicked out when Josh wanted to go to sleep, so I headed back to my flat to watch A Clockwork Orange, which made no fucking sense to me and I fell asleep part way through.
All in all, a good night.
