Amusing street name

I went for a few drinks in the city last night and passed this street.  He, he.  Pfnarf Pfnarf... Note:  I wasn't trying for a moody effect, just forgot that i'd left it on black and white mode.

Argh! Stealing swines!

After 25 minutes waiting I finally gave them my details, all was going well until I hit a stumbling block

“I can’t do anything till you have your P11D” (Expenses and Benefits)

“When can I expect that?”
“Erm… Middle of July”
“Great, thanks for your help”

A special thanks goes out to my brother Steve for reminding me that "Tax Doesn't have to be taxing" 

Argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gits! Give me my money back!!!

Just got my P60 for the year and reckon I’ve paid £1400 too much tax! 

Now i'm on hold listening to funky music, 12 minutes and counting.  Yawn.

New Band

Ben won free tickets to see Airborne Toxic Event at the Drill Hall (London), so invited April and I to join him.  Not bad at all. 

We started off in the Crobar (they now have a pub pug dog called Rommel which is cool although he has quite the flatulence problem), excellent choice if I don't mind saying so myself then wondered over to the venue just off Goodge Street.

Here are some photos.  The first is of some strange chap with a metal pyramid on his head.  I guess anything goes in Soho...





Should gingers be give a summer suntan lotion allowance?

Should gingers be give a summer suntan lotion allowance?  Pensioners have had a winter payment for their heating bill for years, it's high time us gingers received a payment to protect our delicate skin.  It'll save the NHS millions in the long run as future cancer treatments will be less common.

Finally finished

I finally finished copying across all my music to my laptop last night and feel quite chuffed.  Now comes the delightful task of cleaning it all up.  It's mostly matched with correct album and artist etc. but there are still a good number of unknowns.

A lot are relatively easy to work out, either by their name or by a quick play but for those that i'm unsure of i've been using Shazam.

http://www.shazam.com/

For those that haven't heard of it, it's a pretty nifty app that I use on my phone, it listens to the track that's being played and tries to identify what song it is.  It doesn't work with every track but has certainly helped with a few.

More shelves

April's added two more shelves, now I have 4 left to record now! Same amount of cds but just feels like more.

They're all called Helen

I've been looking into the possibility of getting a cat sitter for when we're on holiday in a few weeks time.  3 out of the 4 places i've looked at is ran by a woman called Helen.  They're all separate companies so what are all cat ladies called Helen?

Close, close, close!

As many of you know I absolutely hate shopping, especially clothes shopping, for some reason it really stresses me out. I’m going on holiday to Morocco in less than two weeks so thought I’d take a look on Diesel’s website to see if there were any decent t-shirts or shorts that I could buy for my trip. I didn’t really see any t-shirts that I liked so I looked for a link to the shorts page.


Argh! Close, close, close!!!

I really don’t want to look at semi naked men whilst at work! Or at home for that matter, or on my mobile. Let’s be clear. I don’t want to look at semi naked men full stop. Let’s be especially clear. I also don’t want to look at naked men either.

First and second bbq's of the year

Just had my first and second barbecues of the year. Just as I'd started cooking for my own bbq I was invited out to another at the other end of Tonbridge. Only ate at the first mind.

Work, work, work

I left work at around 8pm on Friday night. What's that about? Bloody Cat modellers only gave me my data at 2:30, the bloody swines. I managed to get consistent results by the time I finished, let's hope the 10 models I ran over the weekend haven't fallen over by Monday morning.

At least it's the last game of the season

I've broken my little finger again, the knuckle is smashed. Owie! Biggest problem being my little finger compensates for my munted ring finger. Coins will be falling out of my hand again for a while.

Insurance Times has kindly added a picture of a digger next to the article just in case you were unsure as to what one was.

Birthday present for me

If anyone's struggling to think of a birthday present for me this year then look no further.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Star-Wars-Complete-Episodes-Blu-ray/dp/B004HYH94K/ref=sr_1_12?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1302187055&sr=1-12

I don't mind waiting a an extra month before it's released on the 30th September.

How odd, how very, very odd.

I've been going to the gym regularly for the last 6 weeks or so and do see some very strange things.

Men hairdrying their body dry (ffs???) was a recently low light.  But today takes the p!ss to a whole new level.  One chap was hairdrying his underwear.  What a twat!

Only in Germany

2.5 shelves left

We've still got another 2 shelves to make to leave us room for expansion. It's either that or 1 in 1 out. And April won't like that rule.

Just in case...

I'll wear a mask just in case the dog's radioactive.

A bit specific

I bought a tin of chewing gum the other day and it’s got a best before date of 13th September 2012. That’s a bit specific isn’t it? I mean, what happens on the 13th September 2012? Do they self destruct? Quite a good ploy to get you to buy more.

“Why do you need to buy more chewing gum?”
“Oh, my last lot blew up”

Huh, our desks do get cleaned

I accidentally left a £5 note on my work desk last night and surprise surprise it's not there now.  At least I now know that the cleaner visits my desk each night.

Does Galaxy Quest and The Three Amigos have the same basic plot?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0177789/
The alumni cast of a cult space TV show have to play their roles as the real thing when an alien race needs their help.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092086/

Three unemployed actors accept an invitation to a Mexican village to replay their bandit fighter roles, unaware that it is the real thing.

Uncanny.

33 gigs and growing

We're finally going to finish copying the rest of our cds across into one place, my laptop then my stereo.  So far we're at 33 gigs and we're up to G.  Watch this space.  I reckon 50 gb when we're finished.

Phew, that's good.

Scream 4 is coming out.  I always felt the last of the trilogy left so many open endings to the story.  Yawn.

Nearly oops!

We went to see Doug Stanhope last night over in the Hammersmith Apollo, he was excellent, very funny indeed.  Even April enjoyed it and wasn't massively shocked.  But before all that it could have ended in tears before it even started.

We went for a bite to eat in Wimbledon before hand and had a good time with Steve, Jenny and little Sam.  April spotted that it was in fact 7:15 rather than 6:15 (I hadn't put my watch forward).  We legged it out of there and found a cab.  Thank god he was running 10 mins late too.  As we ran to our seats (at the edge of the row) he was just starting.  Phew!
