bookmark_border1984: 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 it in a week or so then pick it up again with a few weeks left.

The big question though: who will win?

Kitten? Marco? Daniel?

As long as it’s not the tosser from Hamilton!

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, undress me and put me to bed as I was too drunk to do so myself.


Mind you I don’t remember a thing, so she may have been telling the truth…

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 had rolled around (rolled… get it..!) it is dank and dark.

Going to make tomorrow’s afternoon trip to the pub a bit depressing, I’d hoped to be sitting in the beer garden.

Anyone else getting this link in their referrer logs?

Daypop Spam?

Weird as my site didn’t appear in the top list at all yesterday (I checked when I spotted this yesterday at lunchtime).

bookmark_borderForging 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 things with computerised lighting design.

Ohh look, I did manage to tell you.

I’ll be giving him a hand with some web stuff soon, so more on that later.

As it’s Friday, it’s time to look ahead to the weekend. The slightly longer than normally weekend for me as I’ve taken Monday off (we don’t get Bank Holidays as standard).

First up, cakes this morning. Then the pub tonight, soft drinks only for me though as I’ve got to pick the car up at the station.

Saturday morning we head into Glasgow to buy birthday pressies, probably meet my Mum for lunch, and then head out to the west end for an afternoon/night of drinking. We are starting in Jinty McGinty’s. If you see me, say hi!

Of course this means that Sunday is a complete write off for me (I’ll no doubt be shouting at Uncle Huey), but my darling wife doesn’t get hangovers, so I’ll spend the day in bed and get her to cut the grass ๐Ÿ˜‰

And Monday, lovely wonderful Monday. We have plans to drive through to Loch Lomond and check the in-laws caravan is OK, maybe give it a quick clean and airing in preparation for their ‘holiday’ next month, and then take the long route home. Wherever that may take us. Must try and remember my camera this time.

And you dear reader, what plans have you?
