Small Update   
12:54am 05/09/2005
  Okay where have I been for the last year and a bit....?

Well put simply starting to share my life with a wonderful woman called Kim.

Anyway things have progressed and on the 14th of August I went down on one knee and asked her to marry me!

..and she said YES!!!

The location helped (beside the Grand Canal in Venice) :)

Anyway got to go and plan stuff...

Ho hum...

A fox manages to get into my back yard and kill my pet rabbit Gertrude on Thursday night. (Known to several of you as gertruderabbit)

Friday, I was upset and got £40 out of the cash machine. Then go away leaving the money in the cash machine slot...
Saturday decided to cheer up with some shopping, went to the camping shop and got a parking ticket...
..then left the quid coin in the shopping trolley at Morrisons...

God how much bad luck? I've decided to empty my bank account, get it in fivers and spread it to the four winds from Beacon Hill. It'll be quicker...

This week WILL be better...

Miss Gerty lots. Keep looking out the back window expecting to see her come bounding out from her hutch.

Why have I been away from LJ for so long...?
Well I've been enjoying myself.

About 5 weeks ago I met a lovely women called Kim (in a goth night where else). Since then I've been, quite frankly, spending time away from computers enjoying life...

...except at work...

Now with work I've moved departments. My desk is now in a more exposed area so long periods on LJ or MSN will be noticed... (all yell Boo)

I'll leave you with a picture of one of my birthday presents a dragon called Errol (who is remote controlled, how cool is that!!!)

I'm now off to a Graduation Ball...

  Warhammer Online the MMORPG has been cancelled!!!

Damn was looking forward to that...

Anyway I'm having a great time with my new lady friend so it's keeping me away from LJ. That and a department change in work which means I'm now in a department with not as "relaxed" surfing rules..

Things that worry me...   
04:28pm 14/06/2004
mood: scared
Well the one thing that worries me... more than anything else...

Basically our reliance on fossil fuel...

Look around. Plastic. Probably derived from fossil fuel...

Electricity derived still from fossil fuels.

Cars... enough said...

Bio diesel? Well we do not have enough growing space to provide our own requirements....

Even great ideas using Fuelcells http://www.gm.com/company/gmability/adv_tech/400_fcv/ You need to create the Hydrogen first which requires a lot of power...

People are going to realise that soon we are going to be living in a world with wind farms everywhere and loads of nuclear (yes nuclear) power stations.

Ho hum unless someone else has knowledge of a decent way to save mankind?

I've played in a cricket match that we won (pics below, extra point for anyone who can spot me in the photos. I'm the one with the weird taste in cricket whites)

I've now suffered for 5 days with pulled hamstrings from the cricket match. Only now beginning to recover. Ow ow ow ow....

I was on call for the bank holiday so missed out on a lot of fun..

Just saw the Harry Potter film (well worth the trip, better than the second film). My only beef is they do not explain the origin in the map which explains a few bits of the sub-plot...

...and on Friday I can start drinking again!!! HURRAH!!!

    Saturday Night Review...., Basically Pants (Crap Y-Fronts at that)   
    03:24am 23/05/2004
    mood: bored
    Started well. Went to Gym. Then started going downhill...

    Went to the Tube Bar...
    That is a nightclub you should only go to if you are drinking (which I'm not)...
    After 20 mins of crap music I lost the will to live.

    Texted a few people explaining the situation asking for assistance to keep me alive and not bored. I managed to get the following information from the replies.. (Thanks to all those LJ'ers who supplied the texts)
  • My boss has bought an I-Pod

  • There are tunnels under the M5 for badgers to cross safely

  • Lobsters hearts are in their heads & Starfish have no brains

  • My friend lethario is wearing black tie

  • Old biddies at Golf Club discos dance shite

  • These kept me going enough to get to Mosh nightclub with another friend... (she wanted to pull there)
    Mosh has better music, friendly people but everyone seemed to be about 12 that night... **sigh**

    Lessons learnt...
  • Do not always follow other peoples advice when it comes to nightclubs

  • Stand up for your right to go to dodgy goth or rock night even if the music has been the same for the last 6 years

  • So how was everyone else's night? Anyone still up?

    Worst still I'm on call so will not be able to leave the Leicester Area tomorrow. Anyone who is staying in Lex on Sunday fancy a picnic/trip to Bradgate Park?
