Fuck me. Just got off the phone. Seems like I left my wallet on the train. Thankfully someone handed it in so I can pick it up later on. Jesus that’s scary! I wonder if it was that annoying bint who plonked herself down next to me and proceeded to nudge me every 10 seconds…

What makes a good blog? That is a very good question, and I’m going to attempt an answer. No, not now, later. Once I’ve had time to think about it and you’ve had time, yes YOU dear reader, to give me your thoughts on the topic. Between us I’m sure we can answer this fundamental…

How many hits does your website get*, on average, do you get a day? And don’t say you don’t know, we all do it ya know! And what service do you use to count them? * amended to stop anymore smart arse answers. Blame Vaughan

Whilst Galaxy chocolate is considered, by some, to be superior to Cadburys (only just mind you), I have to admit that I’d prefer a Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut to a Galaxy Fruit & Hazelnut (see what they did there) any day of the week. Alas our vending machine only stocks the inferior Galaxy version. So…

Finally got around to updating the post for Firefox which is now reaching epic proportions. I think I’ll have to split it up soon and offer it elsewhere on the site. One part as a “Why should I bother?” response, and the other listing the useful extensions I, and others, have stumbled across. For now,…

Note to self: Sure, the early train is always good to catch but haring along the platform like some deranged mutant doesn’t make a great impression. Neither does sitting for the entire journey trying to recover whilst looking like you’ve spent 30 minutes too long under a sunbed. Great start to the day, you numpty….

The important bit first: Paul, Louise’s brother, is being kept in so they can give him an ultrasonic scan tomorrow to check there is no damage. He was in good spirits, and other than being bored out of his mind, said there was only a dull ache. He’s hoping to get home tomorrow. Now the…

Louise’s brother was kept in last night, and they want to keep an eye on him for a couple more hours. If he’s ok after (i.e. he stops passing blood) they’re happy for him to go home. Looks like he’s just had a bash and a small spot of internal bleeding which, fingers crossed, has…

Can’t wait. I hope it’s not too “Hollywood”.

Well I didn’t watch The Pianist last night, plumping for something familiar instead, namely Fargo. I’ve had the DVD for a while but I think it’s only the second time I’ve watched it. Probably not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s dark humour and languid pace matched my mood perfectly. I also forgot just how…

Just finished watching The Passion of the Christ. What an incredibly moving experience. I’m not hugely religious and I’m NOT going to pass judgement on the accuracy or portrayal of anything in the movie because I’m not the best qualified person to do so (this may be the first case of a blogger NOT stating…

Today I will be posting random thoughts as and when they pop into my head. Call it an experiment if you will (or call it the desperate product of a brain-dead mind) but that’s your lot. I urge you to do the same in the comments box. Together we will create a masterpiece of nonsense….

It’s not often I post about someone in particular but I’m making an exception. I’ve known Susan for about five years and she’s become a very good friend. Over the past few years she’s had a lot of trouble with illness and it’s been painful watching her fight and struggle with a variety of symptoms,…

Nursery Rhymes too violent. I’m not sure what to say. Speechless. UPDATE: OK OK, the above mentioned report is tongue-in-cheek but this is the best I can do today. I’m trying to juggle 4 projects at the moment and it’s all I can do to stop myself screaming out loud and running round the street…

Damn that time sure does like to fly, doesn’t it… Working at home today, fitting in a doctor’s appointment which was a waste of time (the appointment was made two weeks ago, when my toe was still slightly numb. Toe is fine now, I cut the nail back and the feeling has all but gone…
