Resolute

What is it about this time of year that causes so much stress? Is it the incessant commercialism? The shops crowded with ignorant and stupid people, all bustling around with nary a mind for anyone else, laden with bags full of lead that careen off my kneecaps at regular intervals. Or maybe it’s more to…

Louise had to be in work early this morning, which means I end up sitting here at 7.25am pondering all sorts of weird and wonderful things. Should I have a coffee now or go for a wander with my camera? (coffee). Should I just crack on with some work and get ahead for the day?…

Best Spam Ever?

OK, this is a little long but for once it’s not complete jibberish or a request for money, nor will my penis grow larger and I won’t become rich overnight. No no, this spam is about vampires. Yes. Vampires. Apparently there is a group (collective term anyone?) of vampires hanging around in Tottenham. Google suggests…

Movie info from IMDB Movie reviews from Metacritic Finally got some free time today and nipped to the cinema to catch the latest Harry Potter movie. Bloody glad we did too!

Why is it that, when you are completely physically exhausted, your brain refuses to shut down and let you go to sleep? Is it just me? A day spent up and down ladders, moving large heavy boxes. A day of construction, organising, tidying, moving, considering, discussing, trying, replacing, tweaking, finishing off. A day spent wondering…

The Great Blog Hope?

An open letter to SixApart. Dear TypeKey, You came promising much, the chance to be able to track myself across the comment boxes of the land, the opportunity to build relations and create networks. A unique insight to my self, my habits and passions. Ohh how you have failed me. Maybe I expected too much,…

Mike proves that the easiest way to get comments for your post is to change the design. Why do we find change so hard to take? ~ My downward trend has continued. Whilst only a measly 1lb lighter than last week, I’m quite happy. Especially given that last night I had a big stir fry…

The Monkey Man

It’s the middle of nowhere and in a seemingly deserted shack a man is tied to a chair. He is convulsing and struggling to breathe, bent double as the pain spreads across his chest and down his sides. In closeup we see the muscles in his face strain and pulse, the dull throb evident after…

“I started doing physical comedy, because I was like a moving target. You know what British audiences are like – ‘he’s shit, kill him!’ My upbringing taught me to keep moving” Lee Evans tonight. Can’t wait. Expecting sore sides tomorrow.

In the never ending and mind numbingly tedious job that is “adding titles to all my old posts” I’ve been trying to keep a wee log of posts that I think are my best work on this ‘ere blog. Of course this is entirely based on MY preferences and I think it only fair to…

If, like me, you have a USB drive (or two), you’ll no doubt have it filled with wonderful applications, sync’d with a directory or three on your hard drive, you’ll be using it to store some personal details in a nice secure little application, and maybe even booting from it and other fancy schmancy things….

Dear people who write software programs, I’m not an unreasonable man, and I understand that software mirrors life in that there are always restrictions, things you just can’t do. I know that there are other people beside me whose needs you are trying to cater for and that their requirements are as valid as mine….

Whoooooosh There goes the weekend! Saturday morning and we hit Hamilton town centre early. I headed to the shops, Louise headed to Cafe Crema to meet Louise (who she used to work with and who I use to enjoy flirting with on the phone every lunchtime). Home again by noon for a bite of lunch,…

Disappearing

Unbeknownst to you, dearest reader, I’ve lost over a stone in the past couple of months. I started at just over 18stone, and I now tickle the scales at considerably more svelte 16st 10lbs. I’ve been weighing myself regularly and have consistently lost at least 2lbs every week. But not this week. The fact that…

Finished?

There is one simple rule by which I, and you, can live life. “It’s never finished”. Now, I could either get all philosophical on you (almost said “on yo ass” there…) or I could just say that I’m still not 100% happy with the banner (the very top bit) of this site. Energy levels dictate…
