Weekender

Friday night – dinner at brother-in-laws – food was excellent, chatted until 3:30 a.m. – top evening! Saturday – rugby was excellent – Wales game amazing and Scotland actually won! Sunday – coffee, cheese, crusty bread, a good book. Human Traffic just starting. How was your weekend?

Ouch

ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch… sorry bit of a problem getting up the stairs this morning bit on the stiff side. Problem is I only played outfield for about 40 mins, then was in goal for the last 25 (sat off for the remaining.. em… 25 mins). But hey, we only lost 8-5 (I think). Next time I’m definitely playing in goal, much better suited to my athletic build, or lack of..

Perfection

Have to comment on a perfect sky – not a cloud in sight, a lone star has just appeared. Beautiful. One of those moments that makes you stop and pause and think, wow, how inconsequential am I.

Deep thought

God I hate spam. Believe it or not, I don’t want to see young naked chicks, I am quite happy with the size of penis and no I do not want to get rich quick. Lies of course which is how the damn stuff works, tapping into your deepest desires and promising you it all. Never realised spam was so…. deep. Beginning to shake off weekend, and have been told how I got home on Friday night (relief, had all my clothes on, not that it is a normal for me to arrive home sans clothes or anything… honest – hey would I still be married?). Also was reminded of some conversations, cringeworthy stuff, but I have someone’s word that …

One week

Can I ask… do you start your working week full of high hope and aspirations, a long ‘to do’ list and the feeling that this week is going to be different? Every week I feel the same, full of optimism. With the same thought from my mother ringing in my head – Don’t let the bastards grind you down. Yet I’m already admitting to myself that my ‘to do’ list (hmm maybe should give capital letters to stress importance) will grow, and for every item I remove another 5 will be added. Mind you I did manage to knock a couple of them off yesterday, so should free my week slightly. Just remembered, this week is the BIG week. Answers …

Blurry brill

Miserable, depressed, confused and thoroughly hacked off with life. OK, not quite yet but it is heading that way. Relaxing weekend went wrong on Saturday night and have spent whole of Sunday trying to relax and forget it, but can’t. Also aware that I am dangerously close to plagiarising the last two books I’ve just read. Blurry brill… Oof, tumbled over. Anticipating another fun week at work, with the growing realisation that I should relax and start to not care about it, it is, after all, only a job, there are others. Oh and still can’t remember getting home on Friday evening.

Temporary

I’m not going to write any more about school shootings in the U.S. The BBC are of the same opinion as me, ban the guns, and stop rolling out the ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people’ argument, it’s just plain insulting. One thing this kind of tragedy does give is a sense of perspective, but it is worrying how easily we forget and move on these days, no longer do these sort of events linger in the news. Front page one day, almost forgotten the next. Have we become so self-centred that we don’t care what happens our fellow man?
