My neighbor is a big suck: http://youtu.be/YOnyDXJ4CWI
So I’m at the lunch place, got my laptop setup, got my tablet on the table, got a chair with my laptop bag on one end on the bench, effectively blocking the bench in that side, there are 5 other empty tables and this guy devices to sit in the ONLY spot I can easily get to my laptop.
Sigh. I know I’m pretty but geeze…. this “law of attraction” is working beyond my intention! . LOL.
To paraphrase Mel Brooks (as Louis the XVI IN The History of the World, Part 1):
“It is good to be connected. ”
My dear friend Andrew Majtenyi (http://andrewmajtenyi.com) gets invited to a number of posh networking events, and being in town I get to be a guest of his at these events.
Here you see me at The Home House Club(about a $3300 yearly membership) having a good time.
This was a client meet & greet put on by Comptons (http://www.comptons.co.uk). There I met some lovely people and had a blast. Last week we were at another event and I met many people. This event, I met only 5 people, stayed the majority of my time with just 3 of them. Quality over quantify this time and it was worth it. One person I met was a big fan of Archer! We a great chat over that loveable “Douchebag James Bond” and the insanely dysfunctional office staff.
I’m writing this to kill time before another event. I wonder how this one will go. On the plus side, one of the persons we meet last night incited is to a party at a newly opened bar at The Strand. So a bit of event hoping tonight!
Today I walked over to the mall and grabbed a burger from a place nearby. It was only two pounds and was ok. While here , listening to the regulars joke around, an rather inebriated old guy, who was referred to as 007, came in. There was some amusing discussion about making sure he paid for his food from yesterday. After a few miss, this woman comes in, and seems to be helping… Well Mr 007 didn’t like differing and gave her a bit of a shove away. That started a downhill event that was worth of only a reality TV show. Harsh words were spoken, the woman seemed to be all emotionally distraught because she was just trying to help.
Mr 007 was escorted out the door and things called down a bit but the woman seemed to work herself up into a fit and she came at him, literally foaming at the mouth, but the other patrons held her back. It was both surreal and comical.
Eventually the owner called the cops, and here is where I learned about how the massive CCTV surveillance is both used and thought about in London and the town of Luton I’m staying in. . A few times since people mentioned that “it(the whole incident) was caught in camera” and when the owner called, he did speak about the camera to the cops.
Eventually the two left and went over to the park area where it seemed only words were exchanged with other regulars of the park area and that was it. I left about then and did not see any police show up.
It seems that I will be thoroughly entertained while in here too :)
