I’ve been keepin quiet last few days cause i’ve been pretty stressed out over a couple of things but they seem to be sorting themselves out. This eve I had the pleasure of a beautiful woman buying me dinner. Ruth got paid today and so took me to her local indian restraunt in Acton. I am now feeling very very stuffed indeed. We had a very nice bit of nosh. She’s a brillinat woman.
Life is going pretty well these days. I’m generally feeling quite happy. Not just becuase of Ruth but in everything. While its still a big struggle with work and all that, its jus better. My attitudes to alot of things have changed.
So very very bored! The only thing of interest which isn’t very interesting is the fact that this pic is numer 999 on my phone so the next picture will be the 1000th image i have snapped! I dont quite know if my phone will blow up or if it will crash or if nothing at all willl happen. Willl the numbers go back to zero or just keep going???? I just dont know!!!!
I decided to try it and the image below is picture 1000!!!! God I just realised that I am celebrating the snapping of a photo on a phon – what a geek have I become…….
So this eve I went to see “the persuit of happiness” with my sister. It was………gooood if a little slow. In fact it was very slow. It was quite a moving story that one can identify with easily but it lacked a kick to it. The final resolve to the film didnt make up for the depression i was drawn into and i left feeling really down and depressed actually.
I cant help but think it woould have been better if they had used an unknown actor. Will Smith jus didnt really suit the profile when you remember the Fresh Prince days. A good DVD rental but not worth the cinema experience.
Also got to see my Ruth which was kewl!
So it’s official now. Last week I gave the go ahead to some friends over in Acton that I would move in to their place. 127 has served me well. Party Party 127, Poker Poker 127, Vive le 127 and many other parties get togethers were had but alas time must go on and one must advance one life and turn different corners. My corner is the exotic borough of “Acton”!! Some of you may ask why!!!! Well when the decision was made to move I immediately thought of Acton cause of me Sis and my oldies. 2 days after in a chance conversation some friend s told me they needed a new house mate so it seems to be working out. It jus so happens that ma girly lives jus down the street to so it’s a double bonus. What’s really weird is the fact that the house I will be moving into is the same house both my sisters have previously lived in! Tis MENTAL! That is like some weird kind of psychological thriller movie but less the death and misery and general horribleness!
Anyway – It’s on and I’m looking forward to it! It’ll be sad to part “living” company with JP but I aint worried. I am really looking forward to it quite alot! Woot woot. Good bye huge massive room with convenient 24 hour store directly opposite and tube 30 seconds away – hello Acton!
We went to see this last night! It was excellent! It didnt quite have the consistent laughs as Shaun of the Dead but it was still stupidly funny. There were some parts that were just a little slow and others where it was cheap comedy. I know thats what they do best but they’ve always been good with holding back gags for the sake of cracking one but in this there were a few that didnt work for me. It is well worth watching though and i recommend it highly!
So I was having a discussion on one of the video forum sites i moderate about how ebay has lost its appeal. It seems that the days are gone where you can find great deals. New items tend to go for more than their regular retail prices and second hand stuff tends to go for only 90% of their retail new prices. This is a bit rubbish!
Last night i was watching the gadget show and they featured a website called FatFingers: http://www.fatfingers.com/Default.aspx. This site is excellent. Basically what it does is it looks on ebay for misspelt items. These often have very few bids abnd often get missed. It is very much worth a gander
This morning i find my arms tender and sore. While yesterdays move with Tom went very smoothly it was very hard work and i find my arms is sore innit! The woman in the Van turned up at around 11am and we packed the van. Tom’s mate Gary gave us a hand so it went well with only a cumbersome couch proving to be a bit of a pain to shift.
At the other end it was only the Van lady and me and my bro so it took us a lil longer and a bit more effort but we got there in the end. I did manage to screw my left arm by grabbing an over ambitious box. I had a wobble resulting in all the weight going on my left arm and i think i must have pulled summat as i lost any movement over my shoulder in that arm for the rest of the day. It feels better now but not 100%.
After this i popped over to Acton to do the church thing which was nice. We then went to the pub and then on to Ruth’s. She got a new Telly! I had to sort it out for her to get it all plumed into her setup at home but it was peasy! We then watched Lost with Carolyn & Abbie. – Generally an altogether good day.
This morning I woke at 7:15am…….on purpose too! IKerry called me at 7:30 and arrived 10 mins later with Mitsu. I am looking after this beheamoth Puppy during the days this week for Herself and Tosh as Tosh is away Snowboarding. It should be fun!
So I’m feeling much better now. Still not 100% but certainly over the worst of the dreaded man flu! It has been a while since I’ve been that ill. I wanted to just die! But it’s all good now!
Yesterday was a full day. I cleaned the kitchen after it had not been done for about 3 weeks. Stagnent water in some steeping pots was the worst thing to deal with but 3/4 hours of work got it all lovely but i must moan about one thing – its a small thing….
Its soooo not true! – There were stains in out kitchen that requiered serious scrubbing post cillit bang soaking! I was much dissapointed!
Anyway! I made a bit of a fudgeup of the eve. Ruth had a free eve so I invited her around with the intention of cooking her dinner and watching a movie or summat. About an hour after i did this i remembered that I was supposed to be going to meet Dara for a pint in Heathrow as he was over for the Day with work. Me = Dumba**e! But it all worked out in the end. I brought Ruth along with me! We had a good ol time in wetherspoons which was grand. expect for the confrontation i had but i’ll come back to that. After this Ruth and I came back here and we jus hung out for a bit before i took her back to her place and made my way back home – yes i is a gentleman innit!
So The confrontation! We were in Wetherspoons in Heathrow Terminal1. The bar was pretty full and a free space came up so i moved forward to the bar knowing full well who was needing to be served next. As a former bar man i appreciate this and always take a mental note on these things. Suddenly this huge middle aged suit with a burley scottish accent comes blaring in at me saying “Oi dont jump the f*~king cue” – I was about to say – “Dude, Its a bar, relax, i know you are before me, I’m just standing here at the bar waiting my turn” All I got to say was “Dude, Its a bar….” Then idiot starts saying “THERE IS NO ARGUMENT I AM FIRST BLAH BLAH” while getting right in my face. I camly say to him “if you let me finish” but i need to say it 3/4 times before he shuts up but then the bar man says that he is aware of who is first and not to worry. So i then turn to him and say ” See its a bar! you will get serverd when its your due turn and that is what i was going to let happen so there was no need to get in my face and be obnoxiously rude about it” All the while this was going on I was thinking – I really dont wanna have to punch this guy if he starts. It made me realise my knoew stance on confrontation. I feel much more able to hold my own ground where as before i would usually have jus been a big wuss!
On my way home from Ruth’s i almost had another too! (I aint looking for it i assure you) I was followed by some black kid. I usually have a very keen awarness of this and i did the thing of crossing the street a couple of times and what not to test this and low and behold the idiot followed. I then stopped and turned around, when he saw this he stopped and went back the way he came. – I obviously scared him away YAAAAR!
Its funny that the 2 things happened on the same day.
