A friend in need

Received this from a close friend “You’ve been a great friend to me, been there when I needed you and helped me out. You mean so much to me it’s hard to put into words. If we were on a sinking ship, and there was only one lifejacket left, you know, I’d really fucking miss…

Bad morning – scroll down for more about that. Bad meetings – is it just me or does the word management imply certain things? (Yes I know I’ve asked this before, but, well, ahhh forget it.. you know what I mean). And now my back hurts. Normally my back starts hurting around Thursday afternoon, or…

5 July 2002 Minority Report.Tom Cruise, Steven Speilberg, story based on a Philip K Dick short story. I think we can chalk this up as a ‘must-see’ (although if it has Tom Cruise in it I don’t usually get the choice, but I will admit he has been improving of late…).

Ohhh some new entries on my Guestmap: Pinky asks if she can nick a few ideas. I say steal away! – although I’d be interested in how you’d bribe me… 😉 Seemingly Dogs Don’t Purr (but they do drink Martini’s). And Loose Logic sounds like my kinda logic!

The UK police, the secret service, and the tax man can find out where you’re surfing. In August, so will the Post Office. If a new rule passes Parliament, over twenty government departments will be able to spy on your browsing without a warrant. Find out the facts. Fax your MP. Stop the order.

I hate Mondays

More specifically, I hate Mondays when I get up early, full of vigour for the dawning of a new day, marvel at the birds singing their morning song, and jump into the car to get to the gym before work. Leaving the house at 7 a.m. wasn’t a hardship this morning, as it was an…

Busy day yesterday but still didn’t really make that big a dent in my to-do list.. sigh… oh well. Shopping for Father’s Day pressies today. My Dad will probably get a couple of tops, and Louise’s Dad will get a bottle of brandy and some cigars (same as always). The rest of the day will…

Working at home today, which, as usual, is 1000 times more prolific than working in the office (even accounting for the fact I’m taking time out to watch the football at the moment, and I’ve phoned my Mum as well). By all accounts I’ve already acheived more than I do during an 8 hour day…

Why have Labour abandoned civil liberties? “Victims of surveillance cannot even appeal to Labour’s own Human Rights Act, which enshrines the right to privacy. Ripa explicitly prevents such appeals, stating that the only recourse for a complainant is to a tribunal – which meets in secret.”

To ITV Sport: A letter of complaint Whilst I am glad to see England go through I was very disappointed in your coverage of today’s games (12th June). I think it is ridiculous to only show 3-4 minutes of the other 3 games in total, and spend the rest of the program on the England…

500kph Train

Maglev test train Wow. Fast. I’m trying to think how this train would cope on British railway lines. No longer would the “leaves on the line” excuse work, would it? I also wonder about vandals, and cows on the line and such like, does Japan have the same issues? (The departure of the 3:15 to…

You’re unique, right? I’m mean there is only one Gordon McLean on the planet, right? RIGHT? Wrong. OK so I knew that, as amazingly unique as I am (and BOY am I ever unique) that somewhere there would be another Gordon McLean. However it is a bit weird (or spooky as my Mother would say)…
