pool and snooker...

...at the moment i have had to give in and turn the radio off and put the telly on so i can watch the snooker. when we were younger we had a small pool/snooker table to play with and a darts board and we used to go to the pub with the family at weekends. me and my brother would then also play even more pool. i was not very good at it. my excuse is due to James being good i never got a turn and so therefore i could never practise. at i got older i continued to play pool and still do on occasions but it is so damn expensive. it is a pound ago and when we little it was 20p! so i just thought i would share a photo from the sometime in the 1980's of my brother playing pool of some sort. i ain't too sure what he playing as there are balls of different sizes and many different colours. one day i would like to go see a professional game of darts.

artlab exhibition...

...a couple of photos from Wednesday evening. the exhibition was held in the centre for contemporary arts which is a little house opposite the university library. it is only a small space and so it was difficult to move around and take some good photos. the robber bird print looks good in a frame and it is great to be part of the artlab group and its events. there were other private views on that evening. delusions of grandeur in the PR1 gallery in the victoria building and foresight '08 in the atrium in the student union building. so basically me, Katie and Alice went round having a look at everything and we drank a bit of wine. it was a very nice evening with very nice weather.
