Going back to school!

I am slightly bored with myself these days. So I have decided to go on a course. I think I am going to do a photography course. Its 3 hours once a week for 10 weeks for £195. It always interested me photography, despite the fact that most of my photos are taken when in a slightly drunken state.

This time next year, hopefully be in the mansion, working for Mr.Hefner.

Quotes of the week! Volume ?

"Do you want a vagina with that?"
Will asked me after my veg pizza slice arrived.

"You have to wait until Monday to text that girl."
Wills brothers girlfriend Becky( from BB3) explaining to Will, how you cant let women know you like them, until 3 days have passed.

"Hey, I don't believe that any system is totally secure"
from the film Wargames

"Go fuck yourself"
Me to my boss, very proud moment

"What does my head weigh? Zero, zero, zero."
Dewey weighing his head in Malcolm in the middle and then trying to lift it in time to read the output


What was meant to be one night in London turned into three. My head is very sore as I write this. I had been invited to a boat party on the Thames and the booze was free so I was definately going to make an appearance.

A few important things I learnt this weekend. You should never get drunk before actually getting to a party. You should not fall asleep at a party, you dont look attractive apparently. You should never fall over face first with a pint of Guinness in your hand.

So friday night was a bit of a blur. Woke up in a right mess on Saturday morning, wasn't too sure where I was. Decided to watch Malcolm in the middle until Will woke up. Sat there watching more Malcolm while Wills brother made us both a full English. Few cans of wife beater then headed into Camden. Have never been there before but will definately be making an appearance again. Will attracted the attention of some very seedy looking elder gentleman who kept on talking about coke and showed Will a very large bag of it. I commented that this man looked very much like the old guy from Family guy which Will thought was the funniest thing he ever heard and fell off his stool laughing. The rest of the weekend continued in more ridiculous fashion. With me singing 'You've lost that loving feeling' to the girl behind the counter in KFC. If your ever in Camden watch out for this guy!

Google launched there own web browser. Im having a play around with it at the moment. I dont think its going to take me away from Firefox just yet but "a company who fancies himself a god feels a very human chill crawl up his spine." Yes I am talking about Microsoft but more on those fuckers later. What I do like about this new browser is the fact that each tab has is its own process. So if 1 tab fucks up the whole pile doesnt come tumbling down. Who knows why this isnt in all browsers already but im sure they will all follow suit soon enough. The reality is webpages aren't static anymore, they are java enabled high powered applications. I usually have 6+ tabs open at all times. I could be browsing on a few, playing a game on another and watching a film on another. I do not want all this crashing if one hits a snag.

I would find it hard to believe that a few nerdy engineers at Google aren't spending there 20% personal project time, creating there very own operating system. I think it begs the question "Why the hell should I have to pay for anything?" Microsoft Office being a prime example, there is a shit load of open source alternatives to these now and why should companys have to pay thousands in license fees just to have the Microsoft badge on it. If you buy a copy of Vista you can only have it licensed to one machine. In the short term I think Microsoft will go the Apple route and let 5 machines use the one license. I have a laptop and soon building my own quad machine and I wont be paying for a license twice.


I know I have written about this cash cow before but seriously would it be too much to ask for this show to just fuck off and die. First episode of the new series and I bet you never seen this one coming but they all end up in jail again. Michael somehow gets himself back into the United States without a passport. They dont bother explaining how the FBI's most wanted man strolled through customs. I suppose the writers thought if a couple of million Mexicans could do it surely Super Scofield can too.

The plot thickens when Sarah ( the junkie doctor from the jail) reappears. Apparently she escaped in series 3 and didnt have her head chopped off. Linc the sink picked up some other birds head out of a basket that looked the exact same. Give the guy a break, it was dark and he's the stupid brother remember. This is the biggest pile of bullshit writers have pulled since Bobby only died in a dream in a Dallas. A dream that lasted a whole series imagine that. Well the English writers couldn't stand for that so they brought Dirty Den back after 16 years. The American writers have struck back apparently. OMG, shoot me now.
