Bit o' a Quiet Spot

As you may have noticed things have been a bit quiet around here recently, what with the women the booze and a desperate attempt to start working for myself I have been a little busy over teh last few months.

I have begun to note however that there is a world outside my three preoccupations and these include,

Inflation has buggered our country.

Americans really need to bring in some common sense when voting for presidents.

Come to that the english need to show more common sense when voting for Prime ministers, but at least we are too small to start any significant wars.

The people who run our country seem to think that the best way to curb inflation is to advise businesses to cut our wages, while in the meantime increasing taxes on every single fucking thing, not to mention bringing in stupid fucking lawas that have multiplied the costs of everything from fuel to food.

Pat Sharpe cut his mullet off - a sad day for us all.

Australia may pay me several thousand pounds to move over there if I train as an electrician or a plumber, my view on this is electricity may kill me but plumbing may require me to wade around in shit for the rest of my life... I think you can see where my decisions may be moving towards here.

The global warming nuts have realised that the carbon footprint debate on global warming does not actually have any factual evidence, for this reason expect a sudden increase ni news regarding methane as being the new global warming hot topic. People who discuss this seriously will give you dirty looks if you mention that the Earths relative position to the sun may be the cause of the current temprature fluctuations, especially if you bring this up at a scientific debate on global warming - apparently scientific debate can no longer include anyone who is against the crackpot theory.

North Korea blew up their plutonium creation plant, this is a great step forward in rumoving North Noreas ability to build cheap sustainable power and recover economically, allowing the US to maintain its doctatorial control over what they can and cannot so.

Germany apparently forgot how to play football, Spanish players forgot how to stay upright when tackled.

The above left my bank account £!0 lighter.

7 Rounds of sambucca is probably a mistake when attempting to stay sober and conserve money.

TV Licence Refund

Every year I pay around £140 for my TV Licence, this is basically an extra tax on the country since lets face it, nearly everyone has a colour TV nowdays.

But this isn't what upset me quiet so much, last night I was watching the Germany Turkey game, several times, once when there was a goal, the TV service died to be replaced by Radio 5 Live.

Now I was in the pub watching this, hardly ever watch TV at home, but if I have paid for this service and the BBC do not provide it should I not infact get a refund for that day?

A man can dream.

She has gone

To another country.

Wish she hadn't, but wish her the best in her future.

Conversing with a 'Yank'

So I talked to the american aquiantance over dinner.

"Yeah I really want to go to America, it would be amazing"

He replied, "yeah man seriously visit New York its beautiful!"

He seemed A little bit offended when I said

"And the food, seriously from what i've heard you guys get so much food on your plate in America!"

I noticed a rather significant drop in temprature around me.

"So yeah anyway, where are you from?"

"From the state o' LA he says, a smile on his face"

I looked a little blankly for a second before realisation dawned, "I didn't think Los Angeles was a state, I thought it was in Nevada!"

I get another long blank stare, I shiver a little and search for my jacket before he mentions "Louisiana, LA stands for Louisiana, and Los Angeles is in California"

"ohohoh I was thinking of Las Vegas" I say, building a slight bridge over my lack of American knowledge, reading Micheal Crichtons Andromeda Strain the other night apparently paid off.

I don't think he forgave me.

Next month I will be navigating again on a road trip around Europe.

French Kisses

When I was much younger I went through the same stage as most kids, this basically involved finding a member of the opposite sex and going for the deep kiss. It wasn't big, it wasn't clever and it probably stopped me from getting any further on occasion.

This kind of kissing I grew out of, leaving it behind as French Kissing.

On Saturday me and the French girl got together (not that far I am afraid) and she gave me my first ever proper french kiss.

Bloody hell it was good!

Unfortunately the french girl leaves for France again in a few days, I will miss her and hopefully see her once more before she goes.

I will be visiting her in July along with my flat mate as we start on our 2 week road trip around europe for 2008, can't wait!

Travelling is my one true passion, if I bump into this girl on the way it will only be that mmuch sweeter :)

Drinking, Working and (Wanting to) Live the Dream

A few weeks ago I covered software and asset management for my company, kinda tired me out but had a week off afterwards.

Problem was the monday of my holiday I went to a house party and around 5am a mate managed to pass out holing his breath trying to get rid of hiccups. He managed to crack his skull on the stairs so I had to take him to A&E, didnt get home till around 8am. That put me out of sync for the entire week buggered up my sleep pattern!

Back at work now and the first Monday was trying, I was absolutely knakerecd, work load was shocking but strangely enough only for the first day, after I got it sorted it has been dead quiet.

On the other hand though some of my side projects are starting to pay off, I have started to see some payoff. Gonna work a bit harder and see if I can get a reputable business going but it is taking time, working from around 6 till 10 most nights, with a quick nightcap in the pub. Sometimes I find myself working till 1-2am and wonder how the time went. But it will hoppefully be worth it.

So I have had a week off work, and so far it has not gone too well.

I finally got up the courage to ask the French girl out. She is absolutely amazing and has had me entranced since I met her, unfortunately I got the 'just friends' bullet. It's a shame because we get on great, have a laugh together and she really is so goddamn beautiful!

Second day off work I did not get home till 7:30 am, noramlly this would be a good thing, however in this case it was more down to sitting for a few hours in the A&E department while a friend had the skin on his head glued back together.

Though I did not see it happen apparently he banged his head on the steps while trying to get rid of hiccups - it didnt work.
