Shopping Hell

I can commiserate fully with this, and I can ever offer a potential (limited) solution. Shop at a 24-hour store. My local Asda is open 24hrs, and there is no greater pleasure than meandering round at 1 a.m., stopping randomly, at times for no other reason than you can. Admittedly you do have to negotiate…

Friday night. A work colleague’s 40th, several beers (and the creation of the Crushinator) then onto a house warming party. Home by 2:30 a.m. Hungover already covered, thanks for the cures guys! Saturday night. Dinner at brother-in-laws (a superb home cooked Indian meal), several bottles of red wine, back to in-laws house, where we were…

Horrible experience

My thoughts are with Tom after his flat was burgled. He speaks of that moment when you awake in the middle of the night, gripped by momentary paranoia, before realising that it was nothing. Unfortunately for Tom it was a guy stealing his DVD player, X-box and a treasured camera (a present from his friends)….

Must dig out the spandex wrestling outfit, maybe it’s time for a comeback. Or maybe not. [This post will not make sense unless you were one of the 4 people involved in the conversation in the October Cafe in Princes Square, Glasgow, at around 6:30pm on Friday evening. Suffice to say I AM THE CRUSHINATOR!]…

Two celebrations in one day. 1. My Dad is another year older (sorry he wouldn’t let me say) 2. Google is 4 years old. Hicky Burpday to all!

Hungover

Feel bleuch. Belly is gurgling, head is fuzzy, mouth feels like the proverbial arab’s sandshoe. There is only one thing for it. One Large Chocolate Milkshake from McDonalds. I’m not sure why, but it works for me. What’s your best hangover cure?

Time stands still for no man

Leia made me think about time. I can remember watching TV on 31st December 1999, watching New Zealand and Australia celebrate the new millenium. It was mid-day and slightly unnerving. As a measurement of global distances, time is often the method used. “Yeah L.A. is 9 hours ahead of us” “It’s a 14 hour flight,…

I’m terrible at keeping records, I’ve been hunting through disks and CDs at home trying to find previous versions of this site. Found a couple but still looking – I’m putting together a little retrospective you see. What’s scary is that some of them are still there.

No not me (of course). Congrats to the winner and all that. Right can we all move on now? The duck of the draw Note: I’m not peeved that I didn’t win, or that I wasn’t shortlisted. Honest. No seriously I’m not. I AM peeved that I didn’t win the £1000. My motives are purely…

I’m an organised kinda guy, I have a folder on my desktop called Blogstuff into which I put links to articles I want to mention or investigate further. Every now and then (more then than now) I go through it and clear out the stuff I’ve used and the stuff that, on a second read,…

Been meaning to link to this for a while. I dare you not to lose several hours in the bridge-builder game (on the left, scroll down a bit when you get there). Yeah, but is it art? .com

Behind the times? Me? Never! OK, so I’m a week (ok several) behind on this one, but I must say I’m loving Google News. Especially since I found out that “There are no human editors at Google” because “The headlines that appear on Google news are selected entirely by computer algorithms”. Colour me impressed! (which…
