Virus beaten

Ha, ha. I've eventually kicked them off my computer. Thanks for getting adware and the virus thing Ben. I had to run the gauntlet of downloading an update though.

I can now play football manager in peace.

Poker Evening 1

Although I didn't win all your money (£0), congratulation to Ben and Kris for sharing the pot. I think it was a success. It was a good laugh and worked well in what turned out to be a very cheap evening.

Perhaps next time we can get Dylan and Tim involved.

If scientific reasoning were limited to the logical processes of
arithmetic, we should not get very far in our understanding of the
physical world. One might as well attempt to grasp the game of poker
entirely by the use of the mathematics of probability.

Wilma! As Fred Flintstone would say...

It's currently forecast to hit Florida. Ouch!!! It's gonna hurt.

Click on the link 'loop' underneath the ten pictures then watch the hurricane develop.

Apu (Kwik-E-Mart clerk): "Haven't I seen you on TV somewhere before?"
Homer: "Nah, you have me confused with Fred Flintstone."

Ugh. Need Coffee.

Big night last night. I think I got in at around 12.

I started drinking bottled beer, then had some red wine, then some white, then went back to beer with some pints of stella, interspersed with cocktails and shots.

The full house.


I was playing poker the other night... with Tarot cards. I got a full house and
4 people died.

Best day ever

They say good things come in threes.

Good thing 1: £3 off today at Lloyd's canteen.
Good thing 2: I won the lottery last night. £10 before anyone sends me begging letters.
Good thing 3: Free beer tonight at a works do in the Gherkin.

SC Movie Review 3


Good film. I laughed out loud quite a few times, lots of action and explosions. What more could you want?

eliminates dreams, goals, and ideals and lets us get straight to the
business of hate, debauchery, and self-annihilation."

Git monkeys.

Just gone into Carphone Warehouse to see if I can upgrade my phone (Samsung D600) and they said it would cost £130.

Looking on-line i've noticed that I can get it for free. Bloody gits. I'm not getting it from them anymore.

Any suggestions? How easy is it to get a phone on-line and move your number over.

Good morning

Good morning gentlemen.

Did you all have a lovely weekend? Thankfully I managed to avoid doing anything yesterday so am almost recovered from 4 big (ish) days of drinking.

Going to try and have a week off the booze this week. Wish me luck...! My main problem is that i'm far too weak. I'll be ready to leave work, go home and have a quiet night then someone would ask if I fancied a couple before we went home. Unfortunatly "yep" is usually my answer.

I must be strong.

On another note. Watched Hellboy last night. Not bad. Not good either. Although it help waste a couple of hours of my life, as did Firefly day on Sky (130). Oddly it didn't have the same appeal as when I first watched it.

P.S. I hate Chelsea! And to top it off Bikini Beach is no more 232 / 278. The last one was yesterday.

Non-booze day counter: 1

Booze is the answer. I don't remember the question.
