So i really need to get on the bike more. Last weekend I went for a ride down the canals and got very very VERY bored! You see the problem is there is bugger all places to ride in London. Now if things go right I may find myself owning my first car in the next month or so. This will open up alot more places to me. Throw the rig in the back and off I go – also have the advantage of being able to put tasty treats in the car for when I return. This has sprung the thought of my B17. I still own her but I had a cheeky look at the Marin website and spotted the above Marin Quake CL7. – mmmmmm it makes me drooool!
Right. So the weekend started with the boys of the house going to the rose and crown pub where we played monopoly. Steve got pissed first and then halfway through forfeited his properties and money to Bob who during the first half of the game had spent most of his time in jail. A short time after this I got bored and just to spite Bob who was winning by a long shot, I have JP all my money and property thus letting JP win in the end much to the dismay of Bob.
At this stage we were all very drunk and we went back to the house where much dancing followed. This included JP going outside to throw up. This then prompted bob to use our plastic cable washing line which promptly put him on the floor. After some faffing with the washing line our feeble attempts at break dancing were proving to be a hit with Fergus. JP took it a step to far by literally climbing up the walls and then decided to use the coffee table as a landing mat thus shagging his are and shoulder. It did tone itself down abit after this as we all slowly signed off for the night but I do remember waking up about 3 in the morning to hear Steve singing away.
Sat was spent working on a website for a cleint then Tom and I went off to see Thunder at the Hammersmith Apollo. Perks were included which included full backstage access and sitting having a beer with the band. Now this would have reached uber cool status if I was a huge fan of the band but I’m not so its was just kinda cool. They put on a great show but we were both ready for home by the time the gig ended.
When I got home I worked some more on the website then watched Batman Begins then did more work on the site and pretty much finished it off. which got me into bed by about 5am.
It was 2:30pm before i surfaced out of my bed. Today was spent chillin out. i fell asleep again for a few hours and then got up and made some food and now I am here. A nice weekend comes to a close.
You see this is the best thing about being freelance. – I don’t have to get up early in the morning – muahahahahahahahaha!!!!!
hmmm – busy! Off the success of the site I am working on for Gary Love I am now starting a second site for Colette Brown. Also I’ve been trying to figure out how to create a viral email so I can send that off to agencies in the hope of drumming up new work.
If it works I hope to have a tidal wave of showreel and website work – fingers crossed!
Frustrating Day!!!- Tried making calls, made some calls, and got little work done. – Damn i need some cash flow – might have to go down the temp agencies!!!
I had such a dull weekend its not worth mentioning! – I hate being broke….again!!!
Quick happy Birthday to Ha / VC_Chic
So I was talking to the princess on the phone last night and she was telling me of a grave dilemma she is suffering: A good friend of her father’s has been coming on to her subtly over the past while but last night came out with the suggestion of a date. Her response: EEEEEEW and rightly so. So the dilemma is this: Should she just ignore the guy or should she tell him that its very inappropriate behaviour ad he should never ask ever again, labouring the point that she will not tell her father but if he persists then she’d have no choice. – Answers on a postcard please….In the mean time I shall continue to laugh my a**e off and point at her!!
On another note, Dara made an observation on my site last night. I was trying to get my Webcam to work and was getting him to have a look at it. I have been using Google ads now for a few weeks and they have screwed me over!!!! I don’t get to choose my ads they choose em for me – anyway- click on the picture to the left and you’ll see what I mean – I think the princess will now be totally convinced!!
I finally put the Dublin Gallery up – have a perusal!!
Been a bit disjointed over the past few days. Trying to get back into the flow of things. Stuff I gotta do:
- Gotta sort out the photos from Dublin and make a gallery.
- Finish the Czech Holiday Video.
- Do a showreel for this lady I spoke to last year.
- Tidy my room again
- Call a bunch of people about work stuff
- Go see my Mom at some point
- Stop writing this bloody list as its probably dull as fudge for you to read this.
now MEEEEENA has got her self a weblog!!! She jumped up on the bandwagon so over on the links you’ll find a link – go visit her or else!!!
Was Just watching Brainteaser. – It’s such a shame cause this could have been my Brother presenting this show. When the show was starting he was given the opportunity to try out for the job but when he went down there for what he thought was a pre-production meeting it turned out to be the actual tryout and he had 5 mins to prepare. The others had received the brief and info on it and were able to practice. The producer forgot to send that stuff to Tom and so he just had to watch the others then do his best. IDIOTS!!!
So here I am in Dublin and to say it feels bizarre would be an understatement although it has been harsh. On the first night after a great mean with Andy then a Pint with Andy & Stacey I was struck down with illness and brought the whole meal back up with a vengeance only Bruce Willis has ever been close too. Me and the toilet bowl got very well acquainted which put me out for the entire day yesterday. I did manage to go down the west Pier, up Killiney hill and a much craved walk down Killiney beach. So it was not totally wasted.
It really has been odd seeing all my oold haunts and how some of them have changed sooo much and how some of them have completely changed. Also the fact that this is my first time driving in this country has been refreshing. Me and Trevor (I decided to call the car trevor) have been getting along grand.
This after noon I am off to bray then down to Silver Strand. The place where my summer youth was spent. Should be good. Then I’m dropping into my Aunts for a brew then into Town to see Dara.
Yes – Am off to Dublin tomorrow for 5 days WOHOOOOO! Can’t wait!!!
It was a bit of a wired weekend. Was all over the place!!! It’s ok now. A phase of adjustment is what’s needed and the gusto that is going for what you want.
On another note. someone sent this to me to day and it made me pee a little…
An Essex girl and an Irish guy are in a bar when the Essex Girl notices something strange about the wellies the Irish guy is wearing. She says, “Scuse me mate, I aint being funny or nuffink, but why doz one of your wellies ‘ave an L on it and the uva one’s got an R on it?”
So the Irish guy smiles, puts down his glass of Guinness and replies, Well, oim a little bit tick you see. The one wit the R on it is for me roight foot and the one wit the L is for me Left foot”
Cor blimey, exclaims the Essex girl, “So THATS why me knickers ‘ave got C&A on them.
one might say that putting an image of yourself on display where you look like s**te is not necessarily the best thing to do – To those who say so – I really don’t give a flying fudge!
This site is my expression I do as I please and those who read this regularly know this. All my images have a reference and a meaning….
Maybe it’s jus that Friday the 13th feeling – Hang on I aint bloody superstitious?!?!?
So every New Year people make resolutions in order to better themselves and I have always done this but its always been in a very jocular kind of way. I’ve never really taken it seriously mainly cause most of the times I’ve been pissed as a fart when I’ve come up with the resolutions. This year I am actually gonna put money where my mouth is as it were. Also – I was not pissed when thinking about it. So resolutions are as follows:
- Quit Smoking
- Quit being a moany bastard
- Stop talking about doing things and DO THEM!!
- STOP BEING LAZY!!!!
- Party More
- Make a shed load more money.
This year has started better. My general outlook is more positive and I wanna keep it that way. I am going to do more and I’m gonna bloody enjoy myself and have some bloody FUN baby YEAH!!!!
Had a meeting at Ministry today to sort out all the cash they owe me and it should all be coming soon!!! I’ll be able to pay my rent at last!!!
Was a weird weekend. Not feeling myself and was a lil stressed about things but it was all. The princess as usual brightened things up in the end.
Dunno what’s wrong with me this morning. I woke up feeling bloody miserable. I’m just in a foul mood! I’ll probably snap out of it later. Maybe it is the comedown of the Christmas/new years season. Thinking about things and making resolutions and then realising that day to day life just continues along regardless.
Bought the Princess dinner last night. We went to Patisserie Valerie’s in Knightsbridge and the food was lovely – the service was crap but the food was very yummy.
SOOOOO, I shaved the beard off Yesterday. If you remember I did attempt this a couple of years ago and i have come to the same conclusion – I don’t look like me. I like my beard – that’s why I have one. To those of you who don’t like em – Tough cause until I have to remove it due to safety / medical / paternal reasons – It’s staying…at least until the next time I question it’s presence. (Now I didn’t Photoshop this image just to make it look worse by adjusting the curves to make my skin blotchy and increase the contrast of the stubble so you’ll all agree with me – oh no I would never do that!!!!)
The inevitable anti climax has hit home….
Had a really great New Year. Christmas was rubbish! – Christmas was rubbish mainly cause I was so busy. I worked on Xmas eve and on boxing day when I should have been chilling out with the Princess! I got the day after Boxing day sort of – well we had our second xmas with all our friends in the flat here for dinner and it was really good. The food was excellent and the company was fab and cause I was going away the following da I jus couldn’t work. I chilled for a bit in the eve with Jasmine but not enough.
That eve I went off down to Jimmer’s, got about 30mins sleep when we were woken by alarm clocks aplenty to get us up for our flight to Prague. Yes New Years Eve in the Czech Republic was on course. After 12 hours of travel we arrived in the town of Frydek Mistek in the very east of the country. On our way we couldn’t help but notice the vast amounts of snow. We were then faced with the worst snow the country had seen in over 10 years. – Just in time for uis to go to the small cabin in the mountains where we were to celebrate the new year… So after the Cabbie dropped us up there we had to push him some of the way up the hill cause the snow was soo bad and we were on a road that required snow chains and no…he didn’t have any. So after that we hiked up to the cabin through snow that was waist deep in places and just plain silly. Anyway – we got there and it was grand – Vodka flowed like river from a lake and we got totally pissed despite having to wear every item of clothing (which at one point included 5 pairs of socks, 1 pair of track suit bottoms, 1 pair of jeans, 1 pair combats, 2 thermal shirts, 3 t-shirts, 1 sweater, 1 fleece top, 2 scarves and 2 hats.) because it was only -14 degrees C. It was really ace. If you click the snowy pic above it will bring you to the gallery.
Just trying to recover now. Still feelin the cabin fever but it should pass in a day or two so If I’m keepin a low profile this is why. Anyway – it’s all good!!
