Greetings Maggots,

Weekend was short and boring with washing the car and doing a few kilometers of blacktop riding on the hardtail being the highlights of the weekend..
Another scorcher here today, man, I never thought I'd get tired of the sunshine, but I am
A busy one today plus I am pysched about my interview with Big Blue (IBM) tomorrow..

Wishing you all a[n] [un]productive day <-- Make your choices on which it shall be

    Mornin' bags of mostly water,

    Great start to day as I ended up sliding across the road due to an icy junction - I guess the salt got washed off during Saturdays rain! Hip looks road rashed, wrist is defo not right, but the Stealth leggings survived admirabley!

    So, sat in work, one coffee down, and like Raymond, it appears I have a 'preliminary chat' about a possible new job on Thrusday! So, good luck dude, hope you get what you want out of it.

    As for job:current, today I shall be zapping seven-bells out of various material combinations for someone elses predictive model. I'll be honest, the only models I like are red-headed and French-Canadian, but as it means I get to legitimately spend time with my robot army, I'll put up with it!

    Onwards! To coffee! And mecha and death-rays!

    Good luck with the blue thing Raymondavalon

    censored sleep, but least it meant I was up early and managed 25 mins on the rollers.

    Today is not fun and assignment needs doing over the next few nights. So living for next w.end

    The Monday Yawn for me will be enlivened by planning trips to our far flung offices - I call it Project Cygnet - a little swan.

    Our company is pretty generous. You get free food and they gave us all (2000 employees) a Jabra Soulmate - High End Bluetooth speaker.

    Matthew h good luck with your project - I was stalking you this morning and saw that you have a 2009 Orange P7 but that you took the picture in 2008. Do you travel through time?
  • Morning Losers!

    I get to celebrate this fact by having a dentist appointment at 11. Booooo
    Who knows what the future will hold from then on!
    Laters!

    Alright scuttlers,

    Another day, another ten hour shift, 8 days in a row of 9 hrs 40 mins plus is starting to take its toll now, roll on Wednesday, although it means that by then all I'll want to do is mong out.

    Time for a quick walk before work and clear my head

    BTW good luck Ray

    Morning mongs!

    It's Monday, I'm now at work and really CBA to do anything.

    Off for a nice muddy ride again tonight and that's about all.

    Only another four days and I can drink alcohol again, if I want to, which at the moment I don't.

    Meh.

    Luckily I'm not really bothered by chocolate, the odd snickers bar or 25p lidl equivelent on a long road ride is about all I eat. With not drinking I've lost over half a stone, have more money and seem to need less sleep, I think the issue will be with two crates of Cropton beer in the cupboard.

    Raymondavalon, good luck with the interview and all that jazz :)
    Clank, hope the wrongness of the wrist corrects itself soon :?

    I ate a pizza last night with triple bacons on it from Papa Johns :) mmmmm. It is a must try for lovers of bacons!!!

    I worked for 3 hours yesterday and that did me in, got no sleep either my body just refused to pass out for the night. Drove home from Hudds this morning, traffic jam tasic. Teaching tonight, absolutely shattered :( I hate Monday waaaaaaaaaahh.

    One more sleep til I get to see my man again though this makes me happy. I hate actually really liking someone, makes it hard to maintain the ice maiden façade, someone may realise I actually have a heart soon :?
    Ride it like you stole it!

    Good Luck Ray!

    Got home at 7.40 this morning having ended up staying at the guy's house. I do so love waking up in yesterday's make up. On the plus side I'm ridiculously sickeningly happy.
    Very tired today, bruise on my hip from the altercation with some steps in the Cookie Club is really sore and I'm fully stocked up on CBA because it's 4.5 days until I leave this hell hole.
    Yoga later, then meeting the guy for some dinner...
    Tarrah then

    Mehnday can be summed up thus, - work is like a tree full of monkeys, the ones at the top look down at smiling faces but the ones below look up and all they see are a**eholes.

    Although we have a special manager who is nicknamed the vagazzle cause he's just a highly decorated......

    Fother Mucker that hurt like a lady dog!
    3 Fillings, and a deceased and dead wisdom tooth temporarily filled in as it's going to be extracted at the hospital. Thing is, they didn't numb the stupid wisdom tooth, so whilst using that sucker (hehe) thing, my mouth was in AGONY!!

    Now I look like I've had a stroke as my lip won't come back to life. Made answering the phone earlier quite amusing, but also annoying. The phone call was having a house viewing cancelled, this does not bode well for me.

    Laters!

    Love weekends which end with a 4 hour visit to A&E at the Royal Gwent on Sunday afternoon. Less than 4 months after being there for a broken foot I end up back there with a gash on my face which required a tetanus jab and then a week of super strong antibiotics as they can't be sure it isn't infected, meaning I can't drink on my birthday night out this week. Gosh how I have missed the great unwashed of Newport. They are great for people watching. My arm now aches constantly and I quite literally have faceache and look like I have been beaten up.

    Good thing is CPD all day tomorrow - listening to a boring person talk all day and hopefully sitting at the back and catching up on some sleep.

    Afternoon bumders

    Had a great weekend in Naples, back to uni mehness today though, glad to see the snow has gone while we were away, was getting quite sick of it. Unfortunatley now I'm off the bike for a few weeks anyway so I won't get to enjoy the gloopy mess that there seems to be around everywhere.

    Well, karma's a censored .

    I josh Miss CMC, but a quick trip to A&E revealed I split a bone in my wrist (the capitate) when I had my off this morning.

    That'll learn me!

    So you found out Miss CMC has a bloody gash so you decided to crack one off the wrist............. you sir, would thrive in Bolton

    This will make spotting the crudcatchers favorite lawyer in there gym a lot easier ;0)

    The only way I'd thrive was if I was able to wipe my hand on a lass fairly quickly afterwards.

    Or unless sperm can get through a sash window.

    My research shows that this isn't the case, besides who has sash windows now, I like to splash out on double glazing
