Scotland and Smartphones

Following on from my PC going kabloo-y I decided to upgrade the mobile aspects of my life. I've been on the same BT Genie contract since I was 18, which was ok, but stopped me playing with a lot of the shiny, mobile-y, telephony stuff that's out there. So, after a bit of research (and I admit being jealous of Pete's new blackberry and being a bit seduced by Sherlock's mobile phone use) I bit the bullet, phoned O2 and now I'm the proud owner of a very shiny Samsung Galaxy S It's a very lovely phone and all it's fancy bells and whistles are going to be put to the test as Stu and I head up to Edinburgh for the Skillset Conference on 'excellence in games education' - the fact there's a massive arts festival happening made booking hotels a pain but Stu came out tops with Halls in Queen Margret University, very close to town.

It should be an excellent conference, with the added excitement of the first time I've ever gone that far north (Ironically Pete and I had spoken about visiting Edinburgh for years but I've always states it was too far North, funny the things work throws in your way).

Right, have to go sort out some clothes and shiny tech to entertain ourselves on the train. I'll be back on Sunday but checking e-mail / tweeting / fbooking as usual I suspect.

PS I'll be very happy if I can eat at least one of these:

Tofu Recipe Round Up

More for my own benefit then anything else I'm going to round up my favourite go-to weeknight tofu recipes. This is different from my pinterest board which is full of things I haven't necessarily tried yet but look yummy.

Vegan Tofu Taco Crumbles

Vietnamese Fried Tofu w/ Tomato Sauce – Dau Sot Ca Chua (I airfry the tofu for this one)
I also like to slather it in BBQ sauce and bake it for about 40 mins with peppers and onions before adding it to wraps with some salad.
I've also found it's a great substitute for paneer in things - it's not quite there but it's close

oh, and if I do need to press it, and I haven't got time (which is almost always) I used the microwave method from this chirpy little video

Easter / May Holiday Round Up

Ok, so it's the last day of the long, extended Easter / May / Royal Wedding break - and just for my own sanity a little bit of a round up.
Games The thing I've realised is that I really really like sim / strategy / tactics games - and RPG's - but mainly games that are silly, or have a big comedy aspect. So, even though things like Arkham Asylum are pretty, and I'm sure Portal 2 is great - (I've not finished Portal yet) - I've logged so many, many hours playing Evil Genius over the last week or so. I've also played a lot of Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes & Magicka (I'm up for playing Magicka Multiplayer if anyone else has it - add me on Steam etc etc)
I've already mentioned the Bank Holiday Wii Game session
And board games - Afternoon Play(I've spent a bit of time tidying up some of the stuff on AP - including a blog with links to all the games we've played.) was yesterday and by request of people I brought the Lego Creationary game - a bit o…
