Had to mention my boring day straight out of hell, or a near-by area of equal torment and never-ending pain, which in work terms is known as an 'offsite'.

OK, so maybe it wasn't as bad as it first appeared to be... but to be fair it was shit. I'm glad it is over because I have no enthusiasm for such pointlessnesses. Other folk seem to be at least slightly interested but sadly not me. OK, some of it was fine, but that was the non-work related malarky. I'm just glad it's over for another year.

Tother folk will be out tomorrow celebrating their bonuses. Not me though. Don't get me wrong, I am most pleased with my bonza bonus and I will be going out too. So what's going on? Well, I shall be out celebrating the end of the offsite not the bonus. Huzzah!

Now that ickle whinge is out of my system, time for nitenite.

Blue Screen of Death

Yes, I write this whilst gripped with the fear that the 'blue screen of death' will render my PC useless once again. It's been crashing for some time but despite my best efforts I have to admit to myself that I need to reformat the drive. It definitely needs it even if it doesn't fix the problem. It should do but you never know with computers.

So 5 hours ago I began sorting out, deleting and transferring stuff to my laptop. Good job I have my 'spare' PC.

Just read that Gareth Thomas and Shane Williams are out of the Ireland clash. Damn, that doesn't help our chances. We better bloody win though or I shan't be a happy bastard. Mind you, I'm generally moody at the moment so maybe it won't make any difference.

Anyway, better post this pish before I see blue...

Well it couldn't last...

Three posts in as many days but then no post for three days. I'm guessing three days anyway. No laziness on my part though as I had to go home for the weekend because my dad was ill. So you see, the blog is hardly important at times like these.

It's been an annoying day because my puter is playing up. More than usual. I reckon I should get it sorted next weekend. That's if it lasts until then...

Anyway, I'm up to my armpits in lists of things to do. I need to tick them off and throw away. See my 'list' post for more details!

By Jolly, I did it!

That's right - I emptied the rubbish. Last night in fact, during a bizarre frenzy of sorting and tidying. It's a grand improvement. I feel rightly proud goddamit. I did pencil in some hovering tonight but I reckon I have too much to do; like write this pointless update.

I'm a little scared now. The rubbish issue has compelled me to share this news and write this blog for three successive days. Has it come to this? What other run-of-the-mill, cack-boring, domestic issue can I come into contact with in order to continue in this fashion? Ooh, my bookshelf is looking a little dusty...

Just realised that I have said 'hover' when I meant 'hoover'. I shan't delete it as it amused me. Hovering is such a fine reward for doing a spot of housework.

Two poles in two days

Or rather, two posts in two days. Good effort young man.

Rubbish update (in both senses): not exactly a removal of rubbish but more of reorganisation of rubbish. Not that I normally reorganise my rubbish, for the record. I have put it all into one big bag rather than several scattered on the floor. It's progress if not a result. The theory now being: 'well, there's a little bit more room in the big bag now. So I'll have to throw it out when it's full.'

It buys me a day at least.

Might even follow that up with some ironing... hmm, no that's clearly overdoing it. Too much too soon. I don't want to injure myself.

I'll have a rest now.

Damn, it's Ferbruary

As I said, damn, it's February. I've missed the January posting window and now I don't have a January message archive! Pah.

Can life get any worse? Well, yes it can: I've got a big pile of rubbish on my kitchen floor which I can't be bothered to throw out. How long will this lethargy last?? I reckon it's inversely correlated with the strength of the smell emitting from the pile. Strong smell: lethargy decreases; manageable smell: lethargy remains.

At the moment my lethargy has a fairly strong grip on me. So I'll leave it to you to work out the smell strength. It's like a game this. Good isn't it? Might come back every day with updates; that would be exciting eh? Well, more exciting than no updates anyway.

And the summary for tomorrow is: exciting.
