The Man

Yesterday evening I was out weeding the path behind my house. Some kids were up to mischief in the field behind. A couple ran past me, not realising I was there as a witness to their possible planned scally-like behaviour. As they grouped with their friends I overheard one refer to me as “The Man”. … Read more

and now the bad news…

Wrong Day

Ughh. I woke up in the wrong world today I think. I’m not sure when I entered it. Perhaps the result of a bad dream. Not a nightmare you understand, just one of those dreams that just don’t…. feel… right… I was living on the ceiling of a caravan. On the inside of the ceiling. … Read more

New Years Resolutions

Haven’t bothered with this crap for years but I’ve decided this year I need to make more lists of what I intend or don’t intend to do. It’s the only way I’ll remember. Trust some people a bit better Don’t bid on any ebay auctions from the US, or at least not those that don’t … Read more

Criminal Behaviour

I’ve been told it should be a crime to be depressed at Christmas. I do believe that the person who told me this actually intended for it to be somewhat helpful. Personally I can’t see how. It makes me feel worse. Much much worse. I don’t see how it’s different from telling someone who is … Read more

Full House again

My mother has only been living with me again for a few days now and she’s already driving me up the wall. The paranoia has returned; was that really a bottle of Lucozade she was drinking or did it have something else hidden in it? I dunno. I never know. I always suspect her of … Read more

Again again and again

Ok, I’m promise… and this time I mean it… I’m never ever going to do or plan anything ever again. Or at least anything that involves other people, especially other people I need to rely on. It’s a waste of time and only leads to dissapointment. I don’t rank high enough on anyones list of … Read more

I’m a Stupid Bastard, part 2469b

Note to self: when you are buying CDs on ebay ALWAYS ask for a quote on shipping before I bid, otherwise when the item goes for the lowest bid the bastards can’t rob me on a the shipping to recoup.

It goes on, and yes I know this is the *second* time now. I hope I’ve learnt my lesson this time and won’t trust people to be sensible and respectful, but I got put off by the fact that I’ve had a good run where the sellers have all been professional and respectible and it lured me into a false sense of trust.

Cheese etc.

I had an interesting experience yesterday. I needed cash for my ritualistic Saturday evening chinese so I popped to Tesco to use their ATM. Usually I would have gone to the local Supervalu but their local ATM has been teprimental of late and it’s a depressing place to go to for nothing. So I’ve found … Read more
