Thank you to everyone who came to the meal tonight and also those who later stayed for the Calling. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

[livejournal.com profile] the_mendicant and [livejournal.com profile] robinbloke picked me up and we were far too early so we had a browse around the Asian supermarket. I picked up some chili oil and will have to go back there at one point for other supplies.
At the Cafe Adriatic, [livejournal.com profile] raggedy_man was already waiting and the others arrived soon, too, except Ola, who had a big deadline and couldn't make it. :o(
Masses of delicious and reasonably priced food were ordered and enjoyed by everyone. I had the smoked tuna carpaccio with rocket salad as starter, roast pig belly with onion smashed potatoes as main and the dark chocolate coffee cup as dessert with a very nice Barbera. It was all wonderful.
I immediately made the resolution to go there once every month until I've tried everything on the menu. :o)

Got a text from Calling John asking when I would be there. Apparently, I didn't have the last set so we had to scramble a bit to get out of the restaurant but I made it in time.
Apologies for screwing up the first track but bloody Loki had switched off the cross fader again which I noticed too late. Sorry about that.
It was quite quiet so I had the occasional empty dancefloor but on the other hand I was surprised how well some of the other tracks were received (especially some of the medieval ones like Drachenschiff, or Samsas Traum and Lluther) so woo for a non standard set that not only made a difference but was actually liked.
After my set, I chatted to [livejournal.com profile] vyvyan and [livejournal.com profile] razornet for a while and then caught a taxi home at about 1:40.
All good.

I was too wound up to go straight to bed, anyway, so here's a preview.

Work was longer than expected so was a bit late at the pub. It was good to see [livejournal.com profile] mazzarc (purple corset!), [livejournal.com profile] medivh_tirisfal and [livejournal.com profile] belak_krin again, the latter having just returned from Cornwall, this time for good. There was some geeking about photography and artwork and listening to Mouse's anecdotes from New York.Here's a pic of Mouse, looking dodgy )
Went on to the Calling, where I was jumped by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] _ebb_ and had a quick chat. More pretty women in funky outfits turned up, including [livejournal.com profile] akonken, [livejournal.com profile] feanelwa and [livejournal.com profile] necro_angel.
The first set was very good and quite off the norm, with almost as much German content as mine, including ASP. :o)
After that, the quality of the music dropped dramatically, although [livejournal.com profile] _ebb_ managed to drag me onto the dancefloor a few times.
Called it a night a bit after midnight and gave [livejournal.com profile] davefish a lift home. Had a look at the photos I took, a few of which might even make it into public, despite the crap lights. This won't happen for a while, though. I'm busy tomorrow evening, Thursday is packing and travelling. I should have some time at home, although editing huge photos on my dated laptop is a bit of a pain. We'll see.
Good night
