Blogging blahs. Pt 2.

It seems to be infectious. Memetic Life hasn't been updated since Oct 10th (unless my cache is being incredibly stubborn). Cheryl over at Pixels in Time has been feeling it too. Personally it has more to do with lack of...

The state of our nation's papers

Do we really crave scandal and gossip at any cost? Can we accept the fact that our "news" papers sink this low to serve up our fix of sleaze and filth?...

Mad as a....

In my time as a DJ, and especially when I was going "clubbing", I have known a few people who have done drugs. Nothing as addictive as Heroin, Smack or Crack but still some pretty heavy stuff. I've seen Es,...

Bill the Barber

Bill was having fairly busy day at his popular barbers shop when a stranger sticks his head round the door and asks "How long before I can get a haircut?" Bill takes a quick look round the shop and tells...

He works hard for a living....

If you count the van driving as one shift and a disco as one shift then I have just worked 15 shifts in 12 days. By the time I got home from my disco last night I was shattered. I...

All the old ties...

My parents moved house today. They left behind the house I grew up in from the age of 6 to 21. This was the house where I had had my own room, the house where I had invited friends over...

Happy 11th Birthday Chloe!

Happy 11th Birthday Chloe!...

The Blahs!

I seem to be experiencing the Blogging Blahs. It's an affliction, kind of like writers block only not, which affects most bloggers at some point. Mine at the moment is brought on by a complete lack of time to consider,...

Work all day...

I'm slap bang in the middle of 9 days of solid work (including 3 evenings) and I'm pretty knackered. Including discos and van driving, I worked 32 hours on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Today I did a 12 hour day...

Time to breathe

This weekend has been kind of manic. It's 10:30 on Sunday night and I've not had 5 minutes to myself yet. Even now when I'm ready for my bed my house has been invaded by pissed up women on a...

Otherwise occupied

Almost 72 hours without a single post! What on earth has been going on. Am I ill? Was I knocked down by a surprisingly speedy funeral procession? Was my PC so over run with pr0n spam that it gave up...

Tuesday 15 October 2002

I am number ONE!

I've done it. I've finally done it. I have made it as the Number One search result on Google for not just one but two search phrases (that I am aware of). The first is intentional and is supposedly...

Monday Mission 2.41

I've missed a couple of weeks but here, once again, courtesy of PromoGuy and a day late, it's the Monday Mission. 1. What's the most expensive meal you've ever eaten? What was the occasion? Was it worth it? Before the...

I've got a royal flush!

I was just leaving a comment to a post over at Burnt Toast and I was reminded of the halcyon days of youth when you'd do anything for a glimpse of naked breast, real or photographed. My first every computer...

They're giving it away!

They're giving it away! But you should pay for it anyway. I've just donated a fairly small sum to enetation.co.uk to upgrade to the pro version of their excellent commenting system. This should give faster access times for the comments,...

Thursday Saturday Search

A recurring theme with a title stolen from PromoGuy. Here are the top 5 strangest (and/or sickest) in ascending order............ 5) Goldfish sex - Pssst! Wanna rent a video? Just give me 5 minutes with my camera and the kids...

Celebrate good times, c'mon!

We' gathered together tonight, a group of us that have had new arrivals over the last 2 months. They were all boys and we were the first of the bunch to welcome our new life to the world. Unfortunately, having...

Friday 11 October 2002

And the winner is.....

As voted for by Hootress (or is that "Former Hootress" or even "Mia's Mama"?), and I'm depressed to note only Hootress, the black and white aardvark has been installed as the new background to aardvarkzilla. There will be a naming...

Happy, Happy, Happy

So here I am, after about an hours sleep, ready to embark on the lowest paid job I have had since I was a paperboy 16 years ago. What a bunch of unrested, uncalled for, desperate for the money arseburgers!...

Sabotaged

It never ceases to amaze me the number of ways my own body finds to betray me. Noisy bodily functions during important meetings. Lack of energy during grueling tasks. The (very) occassional failure to perform to the usual standards in...

Movement

After registering with a driving staff agency yesterday, I got a phone call this afternoon offering me some "drivers mate" work. Basically I have to be up at 4.30am and out of the house by 5.00am ready to start work...

Purple or Black?

So which do we reckon is the better background? This purple one or this black and white one?...

Wishing the worst, wanting the best.

What is it about us, that when we think we're good and/or experienced at something, we almost wish other people would mess up so that we can offer them guidance and assistance. Sharon and I went round to see Jack...

CSS woes

I've got an aardvark up in the background. Like it? Its the logo from my entertainment agency which took me ages to design earlier this year (I'm not very artistic or design minded). Now I'm just having real difficulties controlling...

Inertia

Inertia. I've been out of work for too long. Today I went and registered with a recruitment agency for some multi-drop van driving work. It consists of loading a van with parcels needing delivering to 20 or 30 different places...

Almost There!

The new layout is almost done. Let me know what you think of it. I've still got a few alterations to make here and there but not too much. The background image is possibly just a temporary one, if I...

Still going

CSS is not my strong point and its taking a lot of trial and error to get this working. I want the posts to appear in separate boxes and the Date Headers too. Unfortunately that means I get a little...

Bear with me

As you can tell, I'm in the middle of changing the template for this site. Unfortunately I now have to go out. I will finish it soon (promise)!...

Have decks, will travel!

In a couple of hours I'm heading off to do a disco for an engagement party and then I'm away for the weekend. Straight after tonight's disco I'm going to stay at a good friend's house as a half way...

Buggin' me!

No sooner have I finished reading this about the new bad-boy virus in town, Bugbear, than I receive an email containg said virus. As mentioned in the BBC article, an easy way to spot the virus is to look for...

Gimme Gimme Gimme.

I wanted to add this to the side bar on the right, but its just a smidge too big to fit. So I'm just going to have to post it here regularly....

Word Up!

Like the bastard son of Tetris and Scrabble, Bookworm has appeared to remind you just how bad you are at word games. I've been playing for over 2 hours now and I've still not managed a word over 5 letters....

The curse of me.

It seems I am cursed. I am doomed to wander cyber-space bringing bad luck to those hard working souls offering free web services. The registration of "theaardvark" is a portent of a bleak future for those useful tools we use...

You can't see me!

Earlier today a problem with the Blogchalk image caused the CSS boxes on this page to become totally screwed up. The right hand box almost completely covered the page making it impossible to read the entries. I have no idea...

Google Goggled?

You may recall that back in June / July I was having some problems getting my mobile disco and entertainment agency website listed on Google. It struck me that if I couldn't even get that site listed, Google might not...

Why?

Sometimes I write because I have something you may find interesting. Sometimes I write because I have something I want to say. Sometimes I need to get something off my chest. Sometimes I write because I have something I don't...

Correction

OK, I take that back. My life is not boring. There's just not much going on at the moment that would interest anyone enough to write about. I spent almost the whole day yesterday going paper work for the entertainment...

Yawn!

My life is sooooo boring at the moment. Anyone got any good stories they can tell me?...
