Up and down, up and down, up and down. Simple enough and applies to several different ‘problems’ at the moment – most work related. Kinda a 2 steps forward, slight pause looking ahead then, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 .steps back (count ’em). I can solve some of the problems, the others are outwith my hands, but still a royal pain in the ass. Others feel the same, and overall it’s nothing major, more a nagging annoyance, but the kind of thing that will grow and grow until it’s a grade A, nuclear fallout type of pain in the ass. Someone has to speak out, why do I get the feeling it will be me.

I genuinely believe that sorting this will be for the better, for everyone concerned, both individual or company. Man I hate this, sucking away, I hate office politics, always have. Just wish the company was so damn successful!! 😉

You know sometimes I just wish my brain would switch off. I also wish my creative juices would kick in, I’ve been bashing a WinAmp skin to death for the last week or so, and so far it looks like… looks like… hell I don’t even know what it looks like! That and the fact that I have about 7 or 8 pieces half written for this site, but I can’t get my brain to concentrate on a single one.

Ohh and I’ll be re-coding this site in support for WaSp’s latest campaign. It has had some bad press, but I’m in full agreement, and no matter how much I bitch and moan, an occasional reminder always re-enforces the blessed and charmed life I and the majority of the western world live.

Did you have a good weekend? I most certainly did. If you are happy with that statement, feel free to ignore the following recap.

Friday night, tried out Chili’s, a new pub, very nice, well done James, you said it was what Dumbarton needed and you were right! Drank too much Stella, had a laugh with my sister and brother-in-law. Felt OK Saturday which was suprising. Visited my parents who were in the process of getting their piano tuned (it’s only needed it done for about 6 years). The guy who was doing was a hoot! Picture a typical musician, the type that is arty/borderline genius. He had a story for every chord, and also tuned my Dad’s banjo for him… very entertaining!

Saturday night – engagement party. Excellent night, started off a bit slow, but meet a lot of old friends, drank too much again, and ended up dancing the Huck-a-buck, and trying to tango to American Pie… don’t ask…

So, the weekend looms. Back is killing me, but beer will help me relax. Have a good one – see you Monday! (OK, ok, maybe Sunday night…..)

Our nephew has had several sessions of corrective surgery with no real degree of success. Until now. Finally we are seeing some results. Words can’t really express how happy we are, he’s been through a lot for a 14 year old, looks like the end is in sight.
