Ever notice how weekends just turn into a drunken blur?

No? oh, it’s just me then…

Excellent weekend though – my usual thing of a quick beer Friday lunchtime, pop into town to take care of bills, then do a bit of shopping, back home, housework, bath and ready for the night didn’t happen, some mates were in the pub so I had the brainwave of parking on Harriett’s drive and picking the car up the next day…


And so, I got very, very drunk Friday πŸ™‚ apparently I turned up at Harriett’s about 7pm, staggering around mumbling to myself. She said “I just sent you a text” so cue me scrolling through messages, blearily trying to read them, then with a “Oh yeah.” I wandered off back to the pub where I met some more mates and was convinced to go with them to sort out a computer (and I was seriously wasted…).

Woke up in my own bed Saturday morning full of the joys of spring and immediately set to sorting out the 3 laptops that had been waiting for my touch – got all 3 sorted πŸ™‚ productive morning…

Then I wandered back to the pub and proceeded to get to the recommended 35% blood/alcohol mix. The rest of the afternoon/evening became a blur (mucho beer and a pill).

Sunday morning was grim – woke up at 7.30am, drank lots of water, wandered about for 10 minutes, then put myself back to bed (the comedown on the purple pills is horrible) for another few hours.

2pm I presented myself back at the pub and found out much of what I’d been up to the night before, totally stoned with a huge grin on my face talking bollocks to everyone (normal night then).

Of course, after a couple of beers I was back to being pissed so went to a mate’s flat to watch a DVD. This turned into a bit of a party – lots of beer, some weed and people just having a good time.

I woke at 6.15am, wandered to pick my car up form Harriett’s, got back to mine about 6.30 and managed to get a bit of sleep before heading into work.

Did get an invite to dinner last night though – lovely roast lamb πŸ™‚ then was home tucked up in bed by 8pm.

The best thing about this weekend though, is I still have Β£115 in my wallet – bonus!

A great start to the week

And I always though Mondays were bad…

Last night I thought seeing as how Harriett’s computer was very similar to mine mobo-wise and how she needed a replacement hard drive, I’d fit a spare 20gb one in mine and put windows on it so I could just throw it in her machine next time I’m round.

Great plan huh?

Only the spare drive in question was spare because it was completely farked – plugged it in, switched my computer on, everything spun up, then BANG! huge noise, large glow from the processor and the heatsink welded itself to the mobo.


On the plus side – this now means I can try MY hard drive in her machine (I’m certain that’s what the problem with hers is) and finally (taken me 5 months so far) get hers running properly…

As for mine. Well, all my music is on the 2nd drive, not a problem, Harriett is dropping her tower at mine while I’m at work, so tonight I can transfer all the music form the 2nd drive to my laptop. Also, I have a PCMCIA TV card, so I can watch TV on the laptop too. I will be buying another tower though – I’ll go here when I do.

Ofc ourse, when all this happened last night I was just a little upset – the biggest upset was the fact I had no music, plus I WAS planning on watching a film – buggered that idea up…I ended up in the pub watching the football.

So the plan for tonight is: Get my hard drives in Harriett’s PC, copy my music to the laptop via the network, make sure her PC works fine with MY hard drive (no reason it shouldn’t) and test drive some of the games her kids want to play. When all goes well, whip out my drives, bung in this one I ‘rescued’ from work, install a nice clean version of Windows, copy over her files form the old drive, and probably throw my DVD writer in for good measure. Job’s a good ‘un, I’m flavour of the month with the kids, Harriett’s happy, I’m happy – life is good…

That’s the plan – if it all goes wrong I’ll probably have to blog later (via dial up on the laptop) to let you know.
