Time for beer #1
Hurray! Just finished the project that has been hurting my brain for the last few weeks... and with 1.5 hours to spare too :)
Eating more Gresgon's pizza... wish me luck...
Urgh, suddenly feeling violently ill, stomach cramps, what do you think - the Gregson's pizza or bitter?
Early start today :'( lots to do...

Thursday, May 28, 2009

full of pizza...
Heading to the Gregson for some food and a pint (or two)
some stone for the bottom of the garden, and nimba, the cat...

Preparing to take delivery of dozens of paving slabs...
The bugs are everywhere... Can't... go... on... Argh! It's crawling up my neck whispering "Microsoft VBScript runtime error 800a000d"...
Eating Gits Green Chilli Mini Papads which I fried up in a fit of hunger at 10pm last night... http://ping.fm/D1cI0

*yawn*
Doh doh doh! 15 mins late for my conference call meeting :(
In a dungeon, can barely see the glyphs and runes of the portal set into the wall... it seems to be some kind of SQL Stored Procedure...
miserable weather, where did the sun go?
miserable weather, where did the sun go?
Prepares to descend once again into the Stygian depths of SQL hell, armed only with a distinctly unmagical dagger called veebeescript.

full of beans, in a literal way, attempting to now cram some white wine on top...
Battling with the scaly demons of the SQL underworld...
Hmm, the neighbour's children seem to have acquired a drum set. This is not the best of news. They've installed it next door to my office...

overheard: "if I have to tell you one more time, then you can't watch Britain's got talent tonight"... um, is that a threat?
still no car, this is getting frustrating...

Drinking yet more coffee and adding chocolate brownies to the mix...
Good morning world, coffee is inside me, email is checked and replied to, the world of mindless editing stretches before me...

Our car has failed its MoT, mechanic sucks air between his teeth, says gently "It's time to call it day"... like we're putting down a dog :(
Almost crashed the car into a bollard outside the MoT place, as mechanics watched, would have been funny - 'Oh, and fix that too would you?'
Have to copy and convert 212 files from one website to another, this is a heavy task...
I think I'm still asleep - the stupidity feels too strong this morning.

I think I worked too hard today - I feel odd
Just ordered my new phone upgrade... ah, I do love a new gadget...
Refried potato and spinach curry for lunch...
The old man has returned. It takes a long time to reverse back into his 'reserved' space. He looks angrily at the car behind and in front.
Watching an old man move his car then get out a cone which he puts in his old space. He has a sign in his window warning ppl to KEEP CLEAR!

Playing with Wolfram Alpha :)
Everyone should discover years-old code that doesn't work, never has, and has stopped people spending money on your website...
Just booked a random hotel in London for next month, hope it's not another crack-house brothel.
Everyone should start the day with a broken sql server.

In need of several hours more sleep, a veggie BLT, a banana licuado, some sunshine and an extra weekend day (Sasuday). I'll settle for 3/5..

Friday, May 15, 2009

Glad this day of work is nearing its end - it has been one of deep frustration and endless bugs.. The beers cooling in the fridge call me..
Adding parmesan to a chicken and mushroom pot noodle - woah, this is high class living.
Ugh, wet, muddy, smelly cat, what am I? Your cleaning platform?
Trying to shake the fog from my head, the rain doesn't help. The cats all sit and stare accusingly at me, blaming me for the weather.

...now for an evening of doing absolutely nothing - lovely
I see evil orange cat approach the house, I hide, he enters, cautious. I let him get comfortable then leap out, screaming. He looks scared..
... Star Trek was good, very good (apart from the love story angle). Makes Thursday all the more bearable...

...it sometimes sounds like I live next door to a circus of noisy misery, loud suffering and wailsome children...
trying a new cafe for lunch... Nervous about the quality...

...mystery freezer lunch today...

Quesadillas for lunch :)


Posted by ShoZu

... no bloody biscuits, no bloody cake... a fine bloody Friday this is turning out to be... *mutter*
...now he is wrestling with a sold sign. Placing the new sign seems a lot trickier than the removal, in the high wind. The ladder wobbles...
...watching a man climb a ladder in the wind and rain, armed with a hammer, removing a for sale sign across the street. He looks grumpy.

... sun is shining, the kitchen smells of tom cat piss... ah, could summer finally be here?
... nothing like a morning of admin to get the blood pumping...

Wednesday, May 06, 2009

... goat cheese, walnut and spinach pizza for lunch... not enough of it though... suspect hunger will remain :(
... can't believe it is still pissing down. Am I doomed to spend another 24 hours without leaving the house?

Open wide, time for cake :)

... preparing for a long weekend of, well, stuff. Fun stuff no less...
... eeeeee, wet and smelly cat shaking himself like a little dog over my keyboard, face, monitor... *sigh*
... lunch part 2 consists of... wait, you're not *bored* of these lunch updates are you? I know, it hardly seems possible...
Eating (drinking?) a cup of Costa Rican black-bean soup topped with a sour cream and coriander sauce infused with jalape�os...

Morning world, a sunny may day :)
