I got in just before 10 and probably won't last long, considering how late/early it was last night/this morning and I've got to work tomorrow.
In short, the NYE party with some old friends and quite a few new ones in Nuremberg was great. A relaxing affair full of food (fondue), drink and handmade music. There were fireworks accompanied by medieval music on midnight and much clunking of plastic champagne glasses. Someone had the bright idea to start a "short scenario" of Descent
at just past 2am. With a slightly alcohol-addled (wine, apple wine which was almost like cider, a redcurrant liqueur and some sloe gin) and sleep-deprived brain it wasn't that easy to get into but it's a fun and simple dungeon crawl. We were finally finished just past 6am (the players having won) and then collapsed into our sleeping bags.
I got up at 12:30, had breakfast, chatted with the leftovers and then got a lift to Nuremberg station where I met up with E, a friend from Uni. We spent the afternoon at the Brown Sugar (one of the oldest rock pubs in Nbg) where we were a bit disappointed that the smoking ban (in effect from today in Bavaria) was ignored by both patrons and staff but we didn't mine too much as there weren't that many people there and it was bearable. We chatted about old times, travelling, friends, stuff and more stuff. A really lovely afternoon with a good friend I don't see often enough.
I bought lots of music and a few DVDs incl. Black Sheep
, which just came out on DVD in Germany. Anyone in Cambridge(ish) fancy an evening of baaahing Zombie sheep mayhem? We could watch some BloodRayne, too.
