Five Guitar Heroes


Five Guitar Heroes, originally uploaded by Mr Atrocity.

Tinseltroos and I both managed to have a whole weekend off work which is, I think, the first time that has happened since August last year. We knew that we had guests coming over to Schossadlerflug on Sunday night so we spent Saturday getting provisions, mostly cocktail making boozes of many flavours and colours and tidying the flat to the point where it ceased to look like a demilitarised zone. This achieved we lounged back in our newly clean and tidy little abode.

On Sunday we cooked. Tinseltroos cooked an amazing vegetable korma with home-made naan bread and I did a tarte tatin again as it seemed popular last time and I thought it would cut through the creaminess of the curry. Our chums duly arrived and were fed cocktails, mostly Dark and Stormys, Manhattans and gin Martinis (Martinis are never made with vodka if I have a say in the matter). After a suitable convivial atmosphere had been established and enough food eaten we broke out Guitar Hero and spent the evening shredding with mixed degrees of success. As usual Tinsetroos won and I lost. For those without a Guitar Hero guitar we were able to use real non-plugged-in guitars so that the feeling of inclusive rock and roll could be maintained. I don't think even The Eagles had five guitarists.

Late, and with everyone pleasantly toasty, we said our goodbyes and T and took ourselves off to bed feeling very happy and contented, which wasn't only due to the drink.

Excellent food, friends, drink and video games? That sounds like my dream evening.

Homemade nan, that tarte tatin again and way too many guitarists - one of the recipes had to be overthetop and very wrong.

Guitar Hero's just a good way to keep that urge for more than two off the streets/stages.
