Tom called, we’re being charged £2.03 for two months of gas. Awesome. Credit crunch, pifff!

I find the most random and scary things while drunk.
Am I the only one who finds these anti-piracy adverts a little patronising and irritating? As if having the knock-off Nigel song thrown at us every hour isn’t bad enough, why must we endure these stupid anti-piracy ads (that you can’t skip) at the start of pretty much every legally purchased DVD?
Perhaps the I.T. Crowd got it right…
Today sums up the badger epidemic perfectly. Ouch. They gave me a beating, brutally. Only about the skull mind, and they slept in my mouth. This is what the badgers do.
They’re nasty little creatures, they might be cute in some pictures but you wait until they’ve made a set next to your molars and bathed under your tongue. Hideous. I’ve just seen them running down the street, giggling to themselves, mocking me, waving their raised fingers and shouting obscenities in my direction. Think of them as ASBO-needy creatures, Burberry clad and driving a Nova, where different sized sovereign rings denote their hierarchical status.
Really, they need a beating, see how they’d like it…
What really grinds my axe at the moment
Jeremy Clarkson Is appearing far to much on TV! His opinions are just wrong and as outdated as his early hairstyles as sported on channels such as Dave and his old mean machines thing.
Anyway, its been rather wonderful down here, the sun is out and shining, I finally have some work! tomorrow starts at 10 with a pleasant day ahead parking cars at a local National trust property then off to Strike a set at my theatre it starts at 5 and wont be over til 7 (thats 14 hours for those of you asking what the big deal is!)
Finally I have some work bringing cash in! YAY! its taken some time but hey, shouldnt complain really.
Here’s some classic geeky lunchtime humour for you, you can tell it’s a bit of a slow day!
Flash-based web sites are quite possibly one of the most useful pieces of network technology around. Like heroin or microlights, they ensure that those who think it’s a good idea aren’t around to annoy us for too long.
You know sometimes you go out for a quick drink and that is all it is? well no not really cos it’s never just one or just a quick trip to the pub! take today for example I went for a quick trip to see some old friends at a nearby watering hole (conveniently called sweet home!) we got talking and after a quick drink we decided to head onto Bournemouth, lets just explain something at this point, It is believed that this city has the largest number of bars /Pubs /clubs per square mile in the world, however my night out was to present on a local radio station Hope FM. The last time I went on was about 6 Years ago and It hasnt changed a bit! What a wonderful station it is, So much fun and with a really solid listenership (in the 1,000′s!) so after our 2 hr show we were rather tired but bizarly Andy, who has an amazing eye for lasses, spotted two girls whom we hadnt spoken to since leaving school!
It was really rather odd going for a drink with two people whom I havent seen since school and when we were there didnt know very well, but time really does change us, and we spent a delightful hour or so in the local spoons catching up on old times! Its strange but it made me realise how much I’ve changed over the last few years at uni, when I left school I wouldnt have spoken to these two but now I’ve discovered what great people they are. What will I get to learn tommorrow? we wait and see!
maybe the moral is to learn that it really doesnt ever mean just one drink!
Nothing like a bit of comfort food and beer after a particularly long and stressful day at work. Unlike the others, my music listening opportunities are slightly limited with the amount of time I spend on the phone. Of course a long stressful day often involves the customary escape to the BBC News site as soon as lunch time hits.
Of note today; scientists appear to have found what looks like a very old, mouldy baked potato, a porn channel has been fined for showing adult content, and someone who looks scarily like a certain Students Union president has tried to glue himself to Gordon Brown.
Anyway, I’m really quite tired, so I leave you with the video for The Verve’s new single ‘Love is Noise.’
having just noticed that my neighbour has just blogged I feel that I should probably try and keep up! I would like to apologise now for my complete lack of political ramblings, unfortunately I don’t have quite as joyous job as alex and therefore my radio is tuned by my boss! therefore I am subjected to a wonderful mixture of some dreadful new age twaddle! Apparently some boyzone or take that star (which ever one Robbie failed to go back to) is planning to dominate the Christmas chart, I have to say best of luck it is about time that pop goes the x-factor idol was given the quite proper boot off the reality TV heap and some hard working musician was given the respect they deserve (well better of two evils anyway!) and pipped them to the no. 1 spot and then stay around for more than 6 minutes, bring out more music and continue in the music business that they have spent their entire life trying to get into and working for!
On a slightly less grumpy note isn’t it wonderful when you come back to north wales (escape the local radio dribble of the boss) and discover some delightful weather! Having spent a wonderful evening with a delightfully gorgeous Ellin and Tom I was again surprised to wake up to more sun this morning!
isnt life great when you dont have to listen to trash and get to enjoy a beautiful house on the angelsey rivera!
It must be said, I’m a bit of an avid news fan. However, it’s not very often that most of what you hear on the news is good! So today came as quite a pleasant surprise.
Who would have thought that in a single day:
1. Radovan Karadzic would be found and arrested [incidentally why would a tyrannical dictator responsible, allegedly, for the slaughter of thousands of people, choose to work in an alternative medicine centre?].
2. Mugabe and Tsvangirai holding talks (admittedly with some help from Mbeke) about power-sharing.
3. Petrol prices would decrease! Hurrah! Shame it’s only by 4p or so, but hey, I paid £1.25 on Sunday…
Rather a good day all in all!
However, that said, work was dire. Truly soul-destroying. I hate it at the moment, the people I work with are top but I didn’t slave away for three years to grind 20 year old paint off a metal train. That said, it does give me chance to listen to the radio and learn stuff. I choose Radio 4, I like it anyway. So, today’s fact I learned whilst listening: A fly, like most insects, has a de-centralised nervous system, unlike humans where it is obviously the brain. This means that an insect, even if you were to remove the head, could still function on a basic level – it’s wings would still flap and it’s legs would still move for example.
One final thought to you leave you with is this, again I heard it on the radio but it made me think:
Why do numbers always have the final word?
