Unlike me.

I'm not sure what's happened since the last time I updated - at least with more than a link ot two - but rather than wallow too much in missed opportunities I'll mention the interesting things which have happened.


Well, now that's over and done with, had a nice little trip away at the weekend, the excitement of which was marginally dulled by the joy of being at closest-thing-to-home for only a couple of hours before back to New Street. Had my first run for a fortnight (well appreciated), my first night out in Leeds (The Wendy House) which was ok/good - though far from exceptional - and had the great pleasure of getting a train back to which had to change at Derby.

This is change in the sense of the Train Manager saying "Right you horrible lot - at the next station all of you get off, walk along the platform and get on the train waiting a little further down. Please sit in the same seat you left." I managed to find the same seat - I don't think the majority of my fellow man didn't even seem to try.

So, in an effort to stay focussed, happy and grounded I filled in most of an application for a job in Glasgow today...

Beh. This isn't making me happier. I'll think I'll stop now and thank most people for forgetting my birthday ;-p * Still, party next year to celebrate in style I think.

Plus I wrote a cracking Terms of Reference today...

[*] Not entirely true, but I do feel a bit down at the moment and the anticlimax probably didn't help.

Current Mood: blah blah
Current Music: Stargate on TV

Lies, damn lies...

Young lady - I don't intend to let the facts get in the way of a blossoming grey mood :-)

I might do something next weekend - but from tomorrow in in exile again for the rest of the week.

Re: Lies, damn lies...

PS. I want it on record that I said a belated happy birthday before I read this journal entry.

[Rant edited]

You told me that Birthday happenings would be the focus of the omega thingy next weekend, where the "cool" people take over half the area and pour scorn on the other fanboy half...

the "cool" people...

Nah, we'll be at a GD meeting... :-P

I didn't forget your birthday so you can ignore mine so that I feel mitigated. I did pick up a postcard which made me think of you today though. I shall send it. Made me smile.

Come, see the new house at the weekend. Say hello to the car. I'll get a bottle of white wine in special :-)
