1984: Take 5

Big Brother has started again. Yes I watched. No I don’t care what you think of me… Mind you they are a weird and wonderful bunch this time round, I think the lesson’s from last season have been learned. I’ll try not to comment too much on it as I’ll no doubt get bored with…Continue reading 1984: Take 5

Uncle Huey says hi

As predicted I’m only now, at 7pm-ish, finally shaking off the hangover. Yesterday was a top day though, especially as the weather held and allowed us to sit out in the beer garden. Started at 2.30pm, was home by midnight. I think. The wife is insisting that she had to man-handle me up the stairs,…Continue reading Uncle Huey says hi

I love Scotland

I do, it’s true. Not in an overly patriotic kind of way though, that’d just be… I dunno… a bit too American (I’m kidding! sort of…). However it does have the tendency to piss me off, usually centred around the fast changing weather. Merely an hour ago it was glorious sunshine. By the time lunch…Continue reading I love Scotland

Daypop Referrer Spam?

Anyone else getting this link in their referrer logs? Weird as my site didn’t appear in the top list at all yesterday (I checked when I spotted this yesterday at lunchtime).

Forging ahead

My best mate is handing in his notice today and is off to startup his own company. I’d tell you what it is but I’m not 100% sure and it’s very specialised so I doubt you’d need his services anyway. He works in the Lighting industry (as in concert/stadium/T in the Park) and does clever…Continue reading Forging ahead

Devil's Advocate

Still can’t really muster up much enthusiasm or spare brain power at the moment. I did survive a game of 5-a-side (well 4-a-side actually) tonight, but now it’s 9.30pm and I’m completely drained. Mentally and physically. The only thought in my head is from a comment I made the other day, to a work colleague.…Continue reading Devil's Advocate

Retiring type

Peter, he of Naked Blog fame, is taking a break. Thank feck to be honest as he was showing me up for the talentless hack I am…. the added bonus is that we can all now talk about the grumpy old bugger and just delete his comments (if he deigns us worthy of leaving one…Continue reading Retiring type

Consumer advice

Lyle is moaning about those little “Contains” taglines films have these days (moaning is the wrong word I think, but it’s late and I’m knackered). So a little digging reveals that they are just an extension of that little grid you get on the back of videos/DVDs indicating the content of the movie: Consumer advice…Continue reading Consumer advice

Limbering up

So congratulations to Porto for winning the Champions League. The new Chelsea manager seems like a bit of an odd bloke, so he’ll fit in at Stamford Bridge quite well. Anyhoo, we were visiting a friend tonight who is recuperating after an operation on her back, there was some talk of the details but thankfully…Continue reading Limbering up
