Counting down

August is gonna be a busy month, really busy. Plus there’s a number of things that I’ll be counting down to: On or before the 15th the old boy’s moving pad. 21st is the old boy’s birthday and marks two years of me having a licence to drive a motor (no kills for 2 years, ...

Wait a minute, this isn't ADSL 2

Well yesterday (11 January 2007) definitely isn’t going to be nominated for the “best day of 2007” category at this years “mystic remembers the year just gone awards” on Christmas Day 2007. It started off innocently enough as I had a Sky installation (consisting of one standard box, one sky plus box & 16MB broadband) ...

Cold Coffee

I’m sick of having drinks go cold on me at work. Every bloody time I make myself something to drink, I then get to do something for two hours that means I don’t get to take even a sip. Upon returning to a realistic “Mug from Arm Distance” the inevitable always occurs… sip, cringe, spit. ...

Silence is golden

I’m becoming very disillusioned with almost everything related or connected to my family of late. They are literally driving me nuts.

It’s a strange world sometimes. Got up really really early this morning to get in because my dad’s unwell and there were appointments to cancel for first thing. I’ve never seen things so quiet. It was like a dreamland, no pushing, no shoving, no adults with degrees being unable to realise that the train IS ...

Why is it that…

Why is it that no matter how many times I tell myself to get a fan before it gets hot in the summer I NEVER bother 🙁 I’m SO hot right now!

The Longest Story In The Whole Of The World (T.L.S.I.T.W.O.T.W.)

It’s that time again, the time where that stupid little voice inside me says “You can come up with a really really good website.” God only knows why it says it because it rarely ever [read: absolutely never] knows what it’s talking about. Websites have been a passion of mind for quite some time. The ...

Time to learn how to drive

Sitting here having just visited my grandmother in hospital i’m starting to realise that it’s about time i learnt to drive. So far i’ve wasted 30 minutes i could have spent visiting my gran sitting at a bus stop waiting. Of course it’s been so long now that visiting hours are over so i can’t ...
