(no subject)

Advice to all you people - if you're planning on going dancing at midnight, walking up a tall hill (820 feet, versus the 1000 you apparently need to be a mountain) is not advisable.

We left my flat at 11:30 and the conversation (in the rain) went something like this:

"This slop is pretty steep"
"Yeah, my legs still ache"
"Do we have to go to the Mission" (jokingly)
"Well, if you don't want to go, I won't force you"
"I'm not going to turn round now when you came all the way through"
"Yeah, but it'll cost more money and I'm feeling knackered too"
"So you're not that interested?"
"Not really"
"Erin's going to take the piss something rotten"
"But then we can watch tv and hang out"
"Let's go home"

Of course, Nick will take the piss something rotten, but be secretly relieved we weren't there to see him pick up hot chicks.

American's spying on the UN

The United States is conducting a secret 'dirty tricks' campaign against UN Security Council delegations in New York as part of its battle to win votes in favour of war against Iraq.
Details of the aggressive surveillance operation, which involves interception of the home and office telephones and the emails of UN delegates in New York, are revealed in a document leaked to The Observer.
