On top of that i'm involved in a major project for our CEO, they're looking at ways to improve one of my syndicates.
Now I imagine head office will come back to me on Monday with a list of amendments. Great... I'm off for nearly a week on Thursday so someone else can pick it up. Rant over. April's due into Tonbridge at 9:15, straight from work so both of us are under the cosh right now. Boo.

Scroll to the bottom where the comments are and use the sort options to sort by lowest and highest rated.
Lowest Rated (they needed to check on the internet if 26 was prime)
• Oh dear. Another attempt to convince us that 'mathematics is the language of nature'. Makes you wonder how anything in the universe got done until we came along and started counting things, right?
And another thing... if these cicadas respawn every 13 years to avoid predators, what happens in another 13 years? That's 26 years in total. I've checked on the internet, and 26 isn't a prime number.
Highest Rating (calling someone an idiot)
"Would I be correct in assuming then, that I am the first person to recognise that the two prime numbers are, in fact 1 & the 617 digit number in question?"
No you wouldn't, because 1 is not a prime number. Best to check before you assume anything.
The guy that designed and made the original stormtrooper outfits in Star Wars has finally won his UK court battle with George Lucas. He can now continue to make amongst other things stormtrooper jelly moulds!
But if any of you guys out there wants to buy me this a birthday / wedding gift it will be much appreciated!!!

In other commuting news, the whole train was kicked off at Sevenoaks this morning meaning I added an extra 35 mins onto my commute. Doh!
Total Sale Price: £57.74 but postage comes out of that ( but I made £5 from the postage), that leaves me with roughly £54 so I bought myself a nice Mont Blanc pen. Fingers crossed it's nice although that'll be going back on ebay!
What stumped me however was the fact that nobody put in an offer for my Showtime DVD staring Eddie Murphy and Robert De Niro, 5.4 on IMdb may explain things. At least I think it's funny...

My first hand full have a deadline tonight, a load of watchers and a few bids, 3 and a bit hours to go. It's quite exciting.
Not sure if it's worth the effort if I don't get more than a couple of quid each though. Charity shop might be the next place to hand them too as once i've got round to posting them I can't really see it being worth it.

We've seen six houses / flats so far and about to see another two tonight. But after that we're going to give things a break for a while. We've had 3 people round our place but no offers as yet. This leaves us in a tricky position if we were to put an offer in on a new house. We wouldn't be in a strong position when putting in an offer as we're still in a chain and even if the offer was accepted we'd be in a weak position when we're selling as we'd then need to sell quick. Boo, why can't it be easy?

IMdb Rating: 8.7 / (26,609 votes)
SC Rating: 68 / 100 (1 vote)
3D Verdict: Gimmick, pointless, in fact more of a distraction. Apart from about three scenes where they bother to add 3D special effects it detracts from the viewing experience. Wearing the glasses often makes some of the background sets out of focus and hard to see. And although I imagine the film was supposed to be made with a grey filter to enhance the grim look and feel, I think the added effect of wearing the glasses made the film look more drab and unfinished.

Watch this space for more exciting house selling news.

The former Gunner purchased a "non-appearance policy" with the insurer to cover any financial losses he might incur in the event of not being selected to represent Germany in the 2008 European Championships, according to the Telegraph.
However, Lehman refused to pay the €12,000 premium and attempted to cancel the contract shortly before the German squad was announced.
The contract included a non-cancellation clause to prevent the player from effectively securing the coverage for free.
Talbot took out a debt order against the former Arsenal goalkeeper to secure the £14,819 payment.
One agent only had keys for one of the properties we were due to see with her and it was the one we weren't so keen on, one showed us round a building site, as the flat we were viewing was still getting converted, it used to be a vicarage, and one very rude agent didn't bother to turn up!
Incidentally the first flat we saw has just dropped it's asking price from £440k to £400k. Still can't see us putting an offer in as although it was bigger than the other flat (3 bedrooms) it was on the ground floor and it's patio doors opened straight onto the car park. Not nice.
I'm pretty sure it's going to be the 'Walkie talkie", as it's the only new one getting built at the moment on Fenchurch Street.

3 Teared Scheme
Unemployed: Curfew, they must do all their shopping during normal working hours so as not to clog up the supermarkets over the weekends (I count pensioners in this bracket too). Banned from pubs. Not allowed Sky TV
Lower rate: Keep things the same. Afterall they've done nothing wrong.
Higher rate: Straight to the front of queues
