Nothing as scary as this though!

Circle of life

It's been a funny day.

Garfield kills pigeon.
Zara cooks pigeon.
Rats eat cooked pigeon.

Sometimes in life it's not good to be the pigeon.

Here endeth the lesson.

A fine day

Today has been good.
Actually today has been fucking excellent.
It all started well by me n Zara beating each other.
Er, at Mario Kart DS and Tetris that is.

If I see another cool video showing off the Wii i'm gonna explode. Either that or Zara will really beat me!

So how was today also a good day.
Nicky Hayden only won the 2006 MotoGP championship. Woo
And woo again.
Also another reason for Zara to do me in as i've been like a kiddy in a candy/DS store.

Best. Race. Ever. Although I didn't actually watch much of the race. Instead I was glued to my laptop with the timing screen on.

Ok, I imagine none of you reading this has the faintest idea what i'm babbling on about.
But damnit. It's my blog , so I'll woo as much as I want.


Ok, i'm done now.

Not the most exciting news to many, not the most interesting thing I've got to say about my whole weekend. But it'll do for now.

Yes. Blame the little white box on the lack of posts the last few days.
I'm an addict. Pure and simple.
It'll only get worse mark my words. As soon as it comes out we're treating ourselves to a Wii for christmas.
Although I suppose I could just then blog on my Wii. Got my DS working with my wireless connection so me and Zara are having great fun losing to people all around the world at Mario Kart and Tetris.
Good times.

So now here I sit getting slightly chilly in the bath.
Damn you small inferior hot water tank.
It's starting to get way too cold here now. And winter has yet to arrive.
The winter wollies will be out soon.

On a happier note. My blog has made it onto 25peeps.com, yay.
Fame and fortune can not be far away now.

Nightime visitors

Despite all the fireworks and noise life still goes on as normal for some furry and not so furry creatures.

As well as all our pets we tend to feed the local wildlife as well.

Saturday, October 21, 2006


I fucking hate this time of year
All the little retards are wetting themselves over the fact they can let off fireworks whenever and wherever they want.
Even in the middle of the day.
Which I guess goes some way to show their mental ability.
I blogged about this last year. And I guess it's something that will piss me off every year, so here it is again

Why the hell shops are allowed to sell fireworks to anybody other than organizations is beyond me.
Other than the fact the government would miss out on the extra revenue I guess.

Our cat freaks out everytime one goes off.
Fireworks, bonfires. I could really live without this 'tradition' which has very little meaning left behind why we celebrate the 5th November.

It happened over 400 years ago people. Time to move on.

Guy Fawkes must be turning in his grave!

It's Here!

Today is the official Slap Your Irritating Co-workers Holiday

Do you have a co-worker who talks nonstop about nothing, working your last nerve with tedious and boring details that you don't give a damn about?

Do you have a co-worker who ALWAYS screws up stuff creating MORE work for you?

Do you have a co-worker who kisses so much booty, you can look in their mouth and see what your boss had for lunch? Do you have a co-worker who is SOOO obnoxious,when he/she enters a room, everyone else clears it?

Well, on behalf of IkeTurner, I am so very very glad to officially announce today as SLAP YOUR IRRITATING CO-WORKER DAY! There are the rules you must follow:

* You can only slap one person per hour - no more.
* You can slap the same person again if they irritate you again in the same day.
* You are allowed to hold someone down as other co-workers take their turns slapping the irritant.
* No weapons are allowed...other than going upside somebody's head with a stapler or a hole-puncher.
* CURSING IS MANDATORY! After you have slapped the recipient, your"assault" must be followed with something like "cause I'm sick of your stupid-a$$ always messing up stuff!"

* If questioned by a supervisor or police, (if the supervisor is the irritant), you are allowed to LIE, LIE, LIE! Now, study the rules, break out your list of folks that you want to slap the living day lights out of and get to slapping.....

...and believe me. I was so tempted!

The Day

18 December 1972 ~ 13 October 1999

A heart of gold stopped beating
two shining eyes at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove,
He only takes the best.
God knows you had to leave us,
but you did not go alone-
for part of us went with you,
the day He took you home.
To some you are forgotten,
to others just part of the past,
but to those of us who loved and lost you,
the memory will always last.

Really flying

Wow, where has this week gone!

Can't believe it's Thursday all ready. My nice relaxing week is nearly over.
Then back to the cruddy, boring normality of work.

Haven't posted all week, which I know will not please some people. And this one is going to be a bit short as i'm pretty tired.

Had a great day today. Me n Zara went flying with my dad.
Video was taken, photo's were shot.

I'll try n post a couple of the good ones.
Had a go at the controls, and managed to keep us in the blue bit and avoid hitting the green bit.

Hence my ability to post here.

Tomorrow should be fun as I have to try and control Zara and my mum in a HobbyCraft center.

I think flying the plane will turn out to be easier.

Happy 10th Birthday me!

Yes, I`m 10 years old.

Last month, on the 7th September 1996 I made my first ever impression on the internet. On a pet newsgroup.
And then again on the 8th in the same thread as I buggered up my first post.


I have gotten slightly better since then. Can`t believe it`s been 10 years. Slightly over maybe as my first foray into the online world was through Compuserve on my dad`s blisteringly quick 486.

Then I managed to talk my (then) wife into getting connected with a 14,400 modem. On my Amiga. Good times.

A lot has changed in the last 10 years. More than I thought possible. I'm gonna have to dig out some old photos from 10 years ago.

See if i`ve changed as well.

Sunday, October 08, 2006


I think i'm coming down with something.
All the signs are there. The signs Zara had before she got ill. And has now passed on said contagion to me.

Hopefully it won't come to anything. I haven't been ill in a long time. I was always catching colds as a kid. But as i've got older (but not necessarily grown up) i've become a bit hardier to the little beasties that try and infect me.

I'm on holiday for the next week, I can't decide if getting ill is good timing or bad.

Again, hopefully it won't come to anything.

So i'm going to have as relaxing a week as possible. Until Friday anyway. Which probably doesn't mean a lot to people who don't read this often. Or don't know me.

You'll find out if things get too much and a sudden rush of emotion comes out via the keyboard (read back to this time last year if you really want to know).

I'm doing a little better this year for some reason. Up 'til now. Not so many downs. But i'm trying not to let things prey on my mind.

A nintendo DS is wonderful for occupying your mind!

My brother would have loved it :(

Damn, there I go. First crack in the armour.

It's back

To stop the complaints from people i've got Haloscan working in beta blogger.
And when I say people I mean Zara.
And when I say I got it working I mean I found a website explaining what to do.

So there you have it.

No excuses for not commenting.

Wednesday, October 04, 2006


I've bottled it up long enough. Well, actually I haven't 'cos I tend to rant to Zara about him...but anyway, today was extra special.

There's this guy.

Wow, now that sounds gay! Ok, there's this workmate. He's only been working for us about a month. But been working in the industry about 7 years. But, well, how can I put this.

Chocolate fireguard
Chocolate teapot
Ashtray on a motorbike
Fart in a paperbag

All the above are more useful than this guy.

I try to talk to him as little as possible. But in a place with only half a dozen people in it; that makes it kinda difficult.


Him: So do you like listening to Christina Aquawhatsherface (ok, I made thayt last name up, but you know who I mean)
Me: Not really, she's damn sexy tho.
Him: Yeah, what about Bouncy (Beyonce, or whatever her name is)
Me: Umm, no.

Him: Where's the chair? (there's a chair out in the factory for us to use, but I nicked it and put it in my work room)
Me: In my room (which you should already know as you saw me sitting on it before tea break)
Him, Oh, what's it in there for.
Me: What the hell do you think it's in there for...decoration!
Me: *leaps over workbench to batter muppet senseless*

Ok, maybe the last two bits didn't happen...but it was close.

Now, I guess he was probably just trying to make conversation. But i'm not the chitty chatty kind of person. But he doesn't seem to take the hint.

And...he doesn't really seem to take in my, um, natural surroundings.

I have long hair
I have piercings and tattoos
I generally wear linkin park, Limp Bizkit t-shirts
I wear a Deftones hooded top

Do I look like the kind of person to listen to Be-bloody-once. Or be interested in the fact you went to see Kylie last year.

I must sound like a right twat talking about him like this. But if you had to work with him 8 hours a day you'd understand. I think most workplaces have at least one person they could do without.

Maybe i've been that person!

Meh, such is life. Ok, i'm done.

Cake Tuesday

It's back.

By popular demand. And yet again Zara had to remind me it's a Tuesday. So I guess Dr hoojamaflip`s Brain Training isn't working yet.

It's Cake Tuesday.

Monday, October 02, 2006


Well as usual i've left my posting until as late as possible and now I'm being...umm, what's the word. 'Asked' if i'm getting out the bath soon.

Someone is wanting to get tea started methinks.

Anyhoo..my Monday has been a bit...umm. That's the best way to describe it really. Umm.

Nothing really happened. Nothing wound me up. Nothing pissed me off. I guess nobody was awake enough this Monday to cause me grief. I'll have to watch the news later to see if anything happened.

Maybe the rest of the world had an umm day. I'll switch on the tv and find the news reporter sleeping at their desk.

Ok. Now, this isn't a complaint, or a moan or a gripe about the lack of comments I get. I'm rising above all that...for now anyway.

But Zara did 'mention' that she was unable to post a comment today. Anybody else having problems? Anyone know how to get haloscan working in blogger beta?

Email/skype or send me and odeo message of you have anything to say..those buttons are there on the right for a purpose people...use em!

Well on that happy note I shall depart dear reader.

Todays High: 29 on Brain Age, woo.
Todays Low: Bluetooth not working on my laptop, damnit.
