Not Death Metal and Wheres Tacky?

30 03 2009

Dev and KP came down on Friday and presented me with a lovely present, a

Its Tacky the Dog

Its Tacky the Dog

statue of a dog in a jumper (now christened Tacky) and after a King Prawn Jalfrezi expertly cooked by me, we went up to the George for a few drinks, where I accused a dog of having Downs Syndrome and we chatted rubbish for a while.

Saturday came and we headed to the Southwick Brewhouse to look around the brewery and purchase some real ales, including a Chilli Beer for Dev.  The guy that runs the place is a really nice, but a bit eccentric gentleman, but makes everyone feel at home. 

From here we went to the Royal Armouries Museum at Fort Nelson and had a look at some tanks and stuff.  Dev was partucularly pleased with the pieces of the Iraqi supergun that were there, whereas I was more interested in the fact that they were firing off some of the guns. 

During the day, Tacky had miraculously moved to various different places in the flat, causing much amusement (considering our ages, we are very childish).  We then met up with Andy G to go to the Pyramids to see the Eagles Of Death Metal play a blindingly brilliant set.  Sadly minus Josh Homme, the band seemed pleased to be there and were enjoying themselves a lot as they rattled of their tracks, and a couple of cover versions.  A superb speeded and rocked up version of Stuck in the Middle with You and Brown Sugar were good, but the highlight was the single Want You So Hard.  The hot and sweaty atmosphere of the Pyramids seems made for this band. 

After we rocked our faces off we decided to hit Albert Road for a few only to find out that most of the pubs were rammed full of idiots, so we headed back to the penthouse for a few more and because the clocks went forward we didnt get to bed until gone 3.

I have now decided that I am going to play a game of Where’s Tacky? and will be hiding the statue at various peoples houses until they can get rid of it again.  Of course, this could be a short game if they don’t find it and give it back.
