Homer's brain: Use reverse psychology.

Homer: Oh, that sounds too complicated.

Homer's brain: Okay, don't use reverse psychology.

Homer: Okay, I will!

Shitist film ever award goes to...


Channel 5 last night.

What was the budget? Not much.

Only redeeming feature (for Ben) is that Sean Pertwee is in it.

I'm off to Brighton on Saturday

I'm heading down to Brighton this Saturday to see a few of my old uni mates. Most of which I haven't seen for about 3 years, one of which is my ex, Robyn. Should be interesting...

Am quite looking forward to it really, if only to see how much everyone's swelled.

Marcella: You know, when you started getting invited to your ten year high school reunion, time is catching up.
Martin Q. Blank: Are you talking about a sense of my own mortality or a fear of death?
Marcella: Well, I never really thought about it quite like that.
Martin Q. Blank: Did you go to yours?
Marcella: Yes, I did. It was just as if everyone had swelled.

Top film.

Ross update 3

Ross is doing much better and wants to thank everyone who's come along to visit him over the past few days.

I saw him yesterday and he's now up and about, not as mobile as he'd like but considering how he was last week it's amazing.

Praise Jebus!

If you've seen the photos of the car wreck you'd be amazed too.

For anyone that hasn't been to see him yet, he's in Room 4 Fotheringhay Unit, in Kettering General. Visiting times are between 2-8pm.

I'm off to a Summer Ball tonight

Our annual Summer ball is on tonight, so i'll be tuxido'd up with a lovely bow tie.

I'll be sure to post lovely photos of me up on my Moblog as soon as I get them, although my phone's been playing up again so you may have to wait.

Ross Update 2

Good news

Just had a text from Shaheen and Ross should be getting transfered to Kettering in the next few days.

The DVD player is at Lloyd's but hasn't been passed onto me yet.


Just got back from a team lunch, but heard the news from a text.

190 all out!

Seriously though, heard about the bombs too.

We were less than 10 mins walk from the Shoreditch bomb.

We've just been told to stay in the building....


Marge: Homer, is this the way you pictured married life?

Homer: Yeah, pretty much. Except we drove around in a van solving mysteries.

What a joke

Get your anti slavery writ bands here???

Or my favourite…

Sharing the promise?

Makes me sick

How about these gems?

...Caring the love...

... Cherishing the feeling

Update on Ross

I spoke to his Mum on Monday night plus saw Shaz yesterday and things are looking up for Ross.

He's now had his broken arm fixed and may not have to got to Glasgow afterall. The may be able to fly him closer to home.

I'll keep you all up to date, as soon as I hear anything new.

Monday 18 July 2005


As you know Ross had a nasty car crash on Sunday morning.

I know we all wish him well.

Ross's still in a lot of pain but his Mum told me last night that the doctors think he'll be okay in a few months time. I think once he's stabilised they're going to try and take him to a specialist unit in Glasgow.

I'll try and keep you all up to date with events.

I'll probably try and head up early next week to see how he's getting on, if anyone else fancies a trip up to Scotland just let me know and we can sort it out together.

Get well soon cards would be nice too. For now, send them to

For your entertainment tonight

Escape from New York

10:00pm - 11:55pm


Including Entertainment News Update at 10.55

Sullen Kurt Russell impersonates Clint Eastwood in this tough futuristic western from director John Carpenter that never surpasses or fulfils the ingenuity of its premise - Manhattan island as a maximum security prison where the president's plane has crashed. Closely resembling Assault on Precinct 13 in tone and plot dynamics, it's certainly Carpenter's slickest looking film, with the presence of Lee Van Cleef reinforcing its Sergio Leone associations. But, despite a marvellous night-time opening sequence, this slice of escapism often disappoints, though it still rates higher than the poor 1996 sequel Escape from LA.

The Sky's the limit

Trying to get sky installed in my flat is harder than it sounds.

First of all I need to get a phone line installed, which I don't need (£10/m).

I phoned BT up and they said there would be a £75 charge. Geez, that's hardly fair. I'm going to see if it's cheaper with other companies later.


Homerisms(106) = [reading screen] 'To Start Press Any Key'

Where's the ANY key?

I see Esk ['ESC'], Catarl ['CTRL'], and Pig-Up ['PGUP'].

There doesn't seem to be any ANY key."

Woo! All this computer hacking is making me thirsty. I think I'll order a TAB. [presses TAB key]."

Just had lunch with Ian and Wolfy at 12

Only just got back to the office...

It's also one of the guys birthdays at work so had to meet up with them later on.

Unfortunately I have a 4pm meeting with one of our managing agents so coffee all afternoon for me.

Very happy chappy

I moved in successfully on Thursday night and made sure I sorted everything out. Eventually I got to bed around 12:30.

I'm very pleased with the new place. Almost perfect in fact. Exactly what I need.

I'll be having a weekend of fun in a couple of weeks so Ben, Ian, Kris, Ross and Tim you are all invited to stay over. Sleeping bags recommended. At the moment i'm thinking 30th July, although it maybe the weekend either side. I hope you can all attend.
