Roger & Eva's Wedding

Feature image

Gallery published , updated by Richard Goodwin

Roger and Eva were getting married in Roger's native Edinburgh, which was about as far away from Chichester as you could get without needing a translator, but Foggy, Loukesy and myself hopped on an EasyJet and went anyway. I think the delays at the airport took longer than the flight.

Obligatory vaguely amusing anecdotes: the vicar telling the whole congregation that Roger had been made redundant that week; earlier as the flight landed Foggy pointed out that this might mean they'd have to cancel the honeymoon, and me pointing out that, being Scottish, he'd never cancel because he'd lose his deposit. That last one's more funny when you know that my ears had popped on the flight, so I said it at the top of my voice - on a 'plane full of Scots. Oh, and we got on the official wedding photos in our see-you-Jimmy hats. I almost made a fool out of myself comparing the sporrans people were wearing to dead badgers, until one guest turned around wearing a sporran made out of a badger's head. And probably the only Scottish wedding in history not to serve alcohol, although we found the hotel bar fairly quickly.

Rough and ready, unedited set of pics from Andy's Loukes' stag do. There might be some dodgy quality ones, as I just uploaded as quickly as possible.

British Museum 2

After hearing of the Cutting Edge Japanese Swords exhibition at the British Museum, Andy Loukes and I just had to meet up with Jasper Wallace to gawp at around 100 swords, daggers, and other Japanese works of art. After that we didn't have much time to visit the rest of the museum, so it seemed appropriate to go to the Asian department in the time we had left.

There should really be more photographs of this momentous occasion, but frankly I was pissed. But in the good way.

Chinese New Year 2002 (Horse)

Gallery published by Richard Goodwin

The Confucius Chinese Restaurant in Chichester became something of a second home, where we'd meet up after work to chat and drink and eat and then drink some more.    The Chinese New Year celebrations were a good excuse to do that some more, but all night.
