Free drinks at lunchtime

And yes Ben. I'm still a git.

Special Edition Update

100 Journal Entries

And that's even with the fascists at Websense trying to stop my message getting through to the people.

Keeping it real. This is where it's at home boyz.

With my huge readership of 1.6101* readers per planet they have reason to stem my word. But I will prevail and change Earth for the betterment of mankind.

The Bring Back Jimmy Campaign fell flat on it's face but with the right spin it may get revived.

Watch this space for an updated Stuart Clark Manifesto.

*(Ben = 1.0, Ian = 0.5, Kris = 0.1, Tim = 0.001)

I'm reasonably happy right now

The ups in my life seem to be up (just after pay day).
And the downs in my life don't seem so bad.

Update: 6/20

The height of geekdom

22 mins long, but if you click on the screen it goes faster.

Some Kind of Monster

I bought The Big Issue yesterday as it had Metallica on the front page.

Their new documentary is out in the UK on October the first.

The world’s most successful heavy metal band is in crisis. The bassist has resigned, the lead singer’s battling alcohol, the drummer’s despised by the fans and, amid bitter in-fighting, they reconvene for a new album...

On another note, Are you guys going to the opening of Aliens v's Predator on the 22nd?

I might take a few days off and come back to Corby to watch it with you if you want.

Couldn't access my journal yesterday...

Tight IT gits!

The Websense category "Tasteless" is filtered.

Shaheen's off to the Land Down under

February next year, Shaz is going to Ozland (Brisban), to work in an A&E department.

That seriously reduces the odds on ever having Shaheen operate on me.

Feeling rough, rough, rough...

And I bet I look like it too!

Free drinks, free food. It's hard to say no. In fact it's down right rude in my eyes.

Plus I've suggested to my boss that we (my department) return the favour and take out the other team for free drinks and food.

I may then suggest to the other boss to take our team once more

A circle of never ending free drinks.

It'll all end in a mass drunken stupor, but that's how I like it.

Just had a prank call to my work phone.

Here's the transcript.

SC: Stuart Clark speaking.
Wanker: You've been evicted from your house.
SC: What?
W: Only kidding, your on radio 1 and have just won £400 pounds.
SC: Oh okay.
W: Fuck off you're boring.

Hangs up phone

What an absolute fucking cunt. How dare he suggest I listen to radio 1!

What a fucking loser.

Team drinks tonight

I'm going to have to drown my sorrows on free drinks and food.

That should at least cheer me up a bit.

The Price of Socks

Yesterday for the first time in my life I bought some socks.

I usually get a load for my birthday / christmas time, however this year I received none. "Tight bastards" was the term that came to mind.

Whilst food shopping round M&S I thought I may as well get a couple of packets of socks to save me having to do it at some other point.

£20 for 10!

For fuck sake! What are they made out of?

Now I realise why I didn't get any this year. Sock prices must be highly correlated to the price of oil. Let's hope this war ends soon, otherwise everyone will be walking around in bare feet.

And we don't want that do we?

Yippee! I actually have work to do...

It's taken a while but I finally have something interesting to do.

Only problem is that my computer and server are too damn slow and each query (and there are lots of them) is taking half a minute to run. Booooo!

It's so frustrating.

13 days holiday left

Any ideas on what I should do with them?

I could (almost) do a 4 day week for the rest of the year.
Although they might realise that i'm not actually needed for a full week in the future

I could take it all off now and make the most of the dieing summer.

Shaz wants me to visit him in Jersey again, but not sure.

Have you guys got any plans for the rest of the year?

Wednesday 8 September 2004

Is everybody excited?

Only 23 more days to go before CM5 is released!

1st point

Will it be as good?

2nd point

Will it keep me addicted?

3nd point

Will I continue to have a social life?

4th point

Shall I stock up on snack food?

5th point

Shall I book a week off from work to play it constantly?

Final point

It'll probably be 4/5 months behind schedule so i'll have to make to with an unofficial update

Anyone fancy a trip to Romania?

Jedi Academy opens in Romania

A Star Wars acedemy that teaches about the religion of the Jedi, use of the light sabre and speaking in Wookiee has opened its doors in Romania.

Adrian Pavel, who runs the country's Star Wars Club, decided to found the Jedi Academy after getting so many questions from fellow fans on how they can be more like their heroes in the Star Wars films.

He told local daily Libertatea: "We have meetings and lectures, and we dress like Jedis, but this is no longer enough. We'll soon learn how to handle the light sabres in academy classes.

"The academy is open to everybody. There is a quiz with 100 questions that will cover even the darkest aspects of the Star Wars phenomenon that needs to be done in 24 hours. Anyone who passes quiz will have a place in the Jedi Academy."

The academy is also offering special modules for true devotees, like cooking some of the dishes seen in the Star Wars films including Wookiee Cookies, Princess Leia Danish donughts, Sand Trooper sandwiches and Twin Sun toasts.
