A new month

My head hurts (quit the smug grin Rik) – I may have had 1 or 20 too many last night…

But hey, it’s all good. Got the Foos on REALLY LOUD to blow away the cobwebs (maybe wake the neighbours too, but it’s 11 and everyone should be up), pot of coffee for fortification, and a hot bath waiting to soothe my weary bones.

It’s not often I play pool, but last night I got the itch to play a few games – I like to play the odd game or 4, but it gets boring so quickly. I should start playing snooker more…anyway, I played to my usual top standards, got the usual “Why don’t you play for a team?” (I used to – 20 years ago 😐 ), then quickly got bored with the whole thing and had a couple of vodkas…then it got hazy – I know I should NEVER drink AfterShock – I tell people this, but always seem to end up drinking the foul stuff – and it always makes a reappearance. Sigh.

Ah…’My Hero’ just came on – whenever I hear this live it reminds me of Lee, I miss you mate πŸ™

The caffeine seems to have kicked in now…just need some motivation to get my arse off this chair…


For the last few days, I’ve been working on a multimedia machine for myself – wirelessly linked to my network to access my music and films. Digging around in a box of stuff – I have many, many boxes of old computer gear, makes for a great afternoon going through them (that’s really geeky isn’t it?). Anyway, I found a USB Freeview TV tuner (Asus My Cinema U-3000) and decided to throw it in and use that.


Device installs like a charm – no problems THERE. But when you try to actually use the software to watch a TV channel…it just doesn’t work – logs show NOTHING, it just. Doesn’t. Work.

Tried downloading countless thirdparty progs to try to get the fecker to work – nothing does. Now I know why the damn thing was in the box of bits…

So I just bought another one of Ebay – this one has a remote control too (woo!) so I don’t have to use my phone to control what I’m listening to/watching (Salling Clicker on my Nokia N95 8GB works fine – easy to write new scripts too).

That little USB fecker will not defeat me though – I will get it to actually show a TV channel.

OK, I (sort of) have a plan for the day:

  1. Get off this chair.
  2. Drink more coffee.
  3. Have a bath.
  4. Check the plugs on the Galaxy.
  5. Change clothes ‘cos I’m bound to get covered in oil and muck.
  6. Hit Tesco for some bread for sandwiches tomorrow.
  7. Get some dinner.
  8. Drink a few beers
  9. Home, bed.

Actually, if I switch 3 and 4 around it makes better sense…

6 weeks until Morroco πŸ™‚

One of those weekends

You know the ones – where everyone seems to be on the same level and it’s just fun, fun, fun.

Friday night it seemed everyone was just out to get drunk (yes, even I had 1 or 2 drinks *cough*). Let me see…there was Stella Artois (5 cans), large shots of Absinthe, then I went to the Tudor – Carlsberg, vodka, more Absinthe, discussions with Laura, Emma and Wendy about if we were lesbian (well, I am anyway), which women would we go with? seems Angelina Jolie came out favourite, then all the members of Girls Aloud. When I was asked, I thought about it and replied “Anything with a pulse?”, then Harriett turned up and I kind of lost the plot – ended up in town (more Stella, Sambucca, WKD), followed by a kebab (lovely), drunken walking back to Harriett’s – we met up with Lisa and Craig on the way (about 3am – apparently they heard us from almost half a mile away), and ended up playing on the Wii, drinking Stella and Bailey’s until god knows what time in the morning.

I crashed at Harriett’s (no way would I have been able to make it home) and woke up to find my chest was coloured in blue (I had no idea what that was about until I saw Dennis in the Tudor later).

Saturday was recovery time. Met up with Lisa, Craig, Wendy and Dennis in the Tudor late on and got the gaps in my memory filled in – everyone was out of it Friday it seems.

And today. Met up with Harriett for lunch in the Olde Sun (lovely – not as good as the Royal Oak’s lunches, but still awesome), then back into the Tudor for the football – Spurs deserved 3 points today, it was only David James in goal for Portsmouth that saved them – we could easily have been 6-0 up at half-time. James deservedly won man of the match there. Game ended 1-1.

I’m hungry…no, I’m STARVING – need to get some food (I’m thinking chicken burger), then maybe a last beer in front of the TV and bed. Tomorrow I need to go shopping…bleah.
