Good news, bad news

    Good news: I looked great in my vintage, 40s inspired dress from Armstrongs my volleyball night out.
    Bad news: I had to hobble home, finally taking off my sexy new wedge shoes. (See blog New shoes and my dilemma, 07/04/06.) Damn things.

    Good news: I won an award.
    Bad news: I won an award for being a dick by bring chocolate covered macadamia nuts to share at a training session when Best Volleyball Pal (BVP) is highly allergic to nuts (enough to have an anaphylactic shock if around the right nut).

    Good news: Only paid £20 for dinner, three courses and drinks.
    Bad news: It was a shit meal.

    Good news: Went back to my coach's huge flat for drinks -- free!
    Bad news: Aforementioned BVP nearly gets killed again when dicks don't realise that eating peanuts around her is not cool.

    Bad news: No ATMs have any money and I can't take a taxi home.
    Good news:Don't once get harassed walking home, with a guy even offering to carry me on his back!

    Good news: My team's dream coaching candidate has announced that he IS going to be our coach next season.
    Double good news: He wants to have a one-setter system!
    Bad news: I'm not the setter. I could cry.

How about a pic of your vintage dress? Sorry you had to walk. I gather you went by yourself. Didn't you learn better than to go anywhere without funds to return?? What's the high temp for the summer? Love 59 myself.

Actually, the meal was £30, as I had to put £10 deposit. But we got a bread, an okay buffet of appetisers, a shit main course and an adequate, though sickly coloured and sickly sweet pudding and all of our drinks (two Limoncellos for me, in addition to the other stuff). Not too bad.

I'm gonna get a picture of that dress soon. Boy came along, but he left early. I went to hang out with some friends at my coach's place.
