Cake Tuesday


Well Zara surpassed herself with my mum's cake this year. Not that any of her cakes are below par. But this one had it all.

And as a huge fan of the Nintendo DS. Even at 60, my mum loved it.




I think it'll be a while before my parents cut into it.

Like mother like son

Mothers Day today. My mum's birthday yesterday. She's getting spoilt.


People say I take after my mother. I really don't know what they mean.

coo-ee i'm here

But only just. So full of cold. Which seemed to come out of nowhere and hit me like a ton of bricks.

So yeah. I'm being a typical male with a common cold right now.

So how has the last 7 days or so been treating me I hear you mumble? Honestly. I have no idea. I have the crappiest memory known to man or beast.

I envy goldfish.

To give an example. I set a reminder on my phone to go off 9am Saturday morning. Car was due for its MOT. This went off as planned. A few minutes later a 2nd alarm goes off. Which, having forgotten about the first 'reminder' I'd also set.

Oh to have the brain of a guppy right now.

The car didn't pass its MOT. The car didn't even get the chance to be put through its MOT as the bonnet catch broke and they couldn't get the damn thing open.

Well before that little wobble in the life of me yesterday the past week has been reasonably ok. Especially Wednesday when the boss was being his usual nobbish self and told us all to fuck off home.

So I did. Ah it felt good. And I still have a job. That'll teach him to choose his words more carefully. Maybe. Probably not actually as he's a bit intelligently challenged.

So I finally got round to this wonderful blog post. On my wonderful new laptop. Which is. Wonderful. I keep meaning to do a post using Vista's speech recognition but due to the fact I can't understand me at the minute then I shall have to take rain check on this plan.

And if nobody has realised i'm addicted to tumblr. It's so easy for lazy people like me to post stuff. I've stuck the rss feed on the right of my blog so you don't even have to visit. But if you do want to then click here. Yes, yes. I know i've mentioned this before. But if you read from the top of this paragraph then you'll see the bit where I say i'm addicted. So gives me an excuse to mention it as often as possible. Crappy memory or not.

Well my laptop battery is about to die. My brain is about to dribble out my ears and I can't think of anything else to say.

Perfect place to stop methinks.

Just click here

Well we're surviving without Sky One so far. Zara was very brave and deleted the channels from her Digiguide so we don't get any reminders when I the shows we can no longer watch are about to start.

We're now getting into watching Heroes on SciFi channel instead.

So now it's the weekend. Zara is at work, i`m waiting for my bath to run. So what do I do?

Sign up to a new web services! Woo hoo!

It's a disease, I swear it is.

So my latest foray into the digital world is to have a tumblr account.

So what's tumblr. Other than a new Web 2.0 service that likes to leave out the odd vowel. According to the blurb:

Tumblelogs are like blogs with less fuss. Tumblr is your friendly and free tool for creating tumblelogs.

So there you go. Add this link to go have a look. Add the rss feed and then wait weeks for me to post anything new.

Well I have a reputation to keep you know!

Sky's the limit

Well thank you Branson and Murdoch. I guess having billions of pounds doesn't mean you're gonna be less of a dickhead.

In the war between content providers the casualties are the customers. I knew it was gonna happen. But I switched the tv on this morning hoping that Sky One was still gonna be there.

But no.

So fuck you Sky. I'm not gonna be the donkey that you dangle the carrot infront of and follow you mindlessly to become a Sky customer. I'll take my chances with Virgin and see what they can offer without the crutch that is Sky.

I'll miss watching new episodes of Lost, Battlestar Galactica, Bones and others. But my life will go on without them. Even if it means waiting until later in the year to watch them I somehow think i'll live.
