  • That was a super fun alley-cat, thanks Sleepy! As one of the people that inspired me to become a courier (not that i'm sure I'm thanking you for that), and as one of the friendliest people on circuit, you will be sorely missed.

  • very sweet of you nhatt :bigsmile: as this friday is my proper last day there will be a proper last day drinkup at the snow starting at about 1pm when the creative riders get there :thumbup:
  • more drinking count me in! i'll get some of my friend's special white rum to give you a proper send off, its 86.5% and its vicious, it burns your stomach lining as well as your mouth and apprently it makes you go blind, not so sure on that though.
  • Was nice to meet u sleepy, i had a fine time at yr alleycat (esp. trying to find "2" lea bridge rd??!!) ;) perhaps see u again at the snow b4 u go....Trust nik eh? just be careful he don't try to shoot clarky cat into yr eyeball!!?? (ok so i don't know what clarky cat is, but if nik has it then it's intended to fuck u up proper)
  • shots through the eye, my favourite way to consume vodka (or anyhting else around 40%), gets sraight to blood stream, score!
  • yeah thanks sleepy - fun and quick alleycat.
    Mike was the man really, he led us (Bulgarian Peter, SF James and me) all the way - I would never had found my way around otherwise.
    Highlights>
    - Mike leading us through Old Compton street at 9 on a friday night. Ped madness.
    - Me hitting a grey (i.e. almost invisible) chain on city road, whilst trying to cut a corner on a sidewalk. Stupid move, plus 2 people followed me and we all kinda crashed..
    - Mike going INSIDE the Mosque at 2a Lea Bridge Road to ask the young practicing Muslim men the way.. Shoulda taken his Vans off!
    - the ride through Hackney Marshes. Eerie.

    Plus now I can strap my fucked-up radio to my bag for the complete fakenger look..
