I’m Ben the bass player from blueneck sometimes known as Essoben (though not very often nowadays) and I am ashamed to say that this is my first blueneck blog entry. Well, mildly ashamed anyway. I’m told that there were posts bad mouthing my lack of bloging but it seems they were so long ago they are now buried deep in the archive. So – apologies to all.

Corin is almost back from his massive holiday and we should be able to get quite a lot done in September! I also have to write a best mans speech which I will probably spend a couple or weeks worrying about and squeeze it into the night before. I’ve been looking at a few speaches online and they all have the same jokes in. Such as “during the service today I couldn’t help thinking its funny how history repeats itself, I mean it was 30 years ago David and Carol were sending their daughter to bed with a dummy………and it’s happening all over again today.” Boom boom. Best avoided.

I bought 4 Goblets at a reduced price from the local crystal shop only discover they smelled stoney when drank from. I then washed them many times in an attempt to erridaicate the stoney stench and left them in the dish washer as wash after wash went by. One of them broke which indicated that enough washing had been done and it was time to fix the broken one before tring to drink from them again. This is standard with Goblets I belive, and essential to get the smoking liquid effect!

Liverpool flawless on paper start is at odds with their woefull performances. Will me and Dunc manage to get up to a game this season? Last season was the first one when we didn’t manage to. Still we saw the Champions League semi final against Chelsea which takes quite a lot of beating.

Anyway I’m off to meet Ben (who’s birthday it was yesterday) and Dunc at the pub to talk about Blueneck a little but mainly to watch Liverpool beat Villa!
