Bouncing Dogs

Raining. I mean straight down, bouncing back up about 2 feet, drains only just coping type rain. After the heat of the weekend I’m sure it is a welcome to relief to all garden owners, but to be frank, when you are trying to play football it’s just damn inconsiderate! The rollercoaster of apathy continues, currently on a down trend, but have a meeting with my new boss tomorrow, hopefully will see an up trend soon! Note to self: be positive, and stop playing ISS Pro 2 every night!!

Playing the station

Tekken Torture – a true real life event, where people play Tekken whilst connected to a small electrical device that will shock them whenever they are hit… seriously. Obviously these people don’t play their computer games properly, or they’d have the same blisters I do from playing football on my Playstation. I mean everyone knows that if you press the buttons harder, the players run faster… right?

Weekender

Relaxed, calm, sunburnt, and quite possible still drunk/hungover… Me and few thousand others will be thinking back to the weekend already, the glorious sunshine, the lumps of carbon cooking on the BBQ, the ice cold beer, the smell of aftersun. All that and it’s only May. This glorious weekend was tempered only by the installation of my new Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer (one of the new ‘ball-less’ mice). I hate having a clunky mouse, leaping randomly from pixel to pixel instead of following the smooth arc my hand is painting on my mousemat. This was the beginning of a new calm me (as prompted by someone else, she knows who she is) and I would no longer curse my mouse when …

Barbie

BBQ weekend it is then! Sun is still high in the sky, and I’ve got a fresh layer of skin to burn (skin cancer? – it won’t get me! ha ha hahaaaa). However it does mean an early trip to the shops to get the supplies in before anyone else wakens up… better safe than sorry (but on the plus side we are using the in-laws place as they are away, have a fabby big BBQ, and a full freezer of carbonisable goodies!!) Have a good one y’all!!

Resolved

OK, my weekend resolutions (yeah like that means I won’t break them..) is to update this site. A few tweaks, and bits and bobs to be published. Plus the glaring omission that no-one has bothered to point out to me…. I’ve not got An Entirely Other Day in my ‘Visit…’ list! Oops!

Greener Grass

Sun is shining (weather is sweet), makes you wanna move your dancin’ feet! Was musing to a friend that since I returned from San Francisco, I’m questioning why I would want to stay in Scotland. We had things MUCH better when we stayed down south (financially, socially, weatherly) but why limit it to England. America, Australia, New Zealand, Canada (uhhh except for all that snow….). As I’ve stated to others I’m going hang here for a couple of months until things pan out, but the trouble is the new job information is so accessible, and even something basic like a salary comparison is easy… depressing but easy. Still it’s not just about the money. Right? …RIGHT???!! Next redesign started last …

Weekender

Happy Birthday (yesterday) Jen – 20 at last. Quiet weekend, shopping and BBQ on Saturday, Sunday, more shopping. Big weekend huh… I’ve been playing with a few things for this site (including my San Fran diary, which I am sure won’t live up to any expectations at all), but all my ‘creative’ juices are being sucked up by professional requirements. I’m swaying a lot at the moment, new horizons with the recent acquisition of the company I work for, but I’m not sure how happy I am with those horizons. Keeping one eye on my options for the next couple of months. How are you?
