Paperback Writer

Ah... a spare moment in the day. I've been at work from 9-4 today and then I'm back in from 5-12 which equals a very long day. I did try and leave at 2pm so I could have a few hours off but that never materialised.

Tonight is the Halloween Party and I've got a Band and DJ playing at the Union, plus decorations and a few games lined up. I'm gonna have a look in the loft in a minute to look for an old Halloween costume from last year [Mad Scientist I think...].

So you may be thing "wow he's busy", and you'd be right, but what else could I d oto make my life even busier......*drum roll*...


In the past I've seen it on others blogs but never got involved so I might as well give it a go and have something to talk about. In no way do I think I'll reach the 50,000 word barrier in 30 days, but I'll give it a go and see if I can just wing it and write any bollocks.

I haven't thought about a theme or characters or plot and am really free to go anyway I want, which I guess is the style of NaNoWriMo.

I'm gonna put a sidebar widget on the template, which I can show off and be proud of.

If a picture paints a thousand words, Then why can't I paint you?

Aren't digital cameras brilliant? I really do wish that I'd had one earlier in my life as there are so many events in my life that I wish I had more memories of. I wouldn't say I have a bad memory it's just that if I think certain information is irrelevant then I will dispose of it and will be pretty hard done by to recollect it.

Of course there are also the memories that I want to remember but after a while certain facts, faces, and info will start to fade away until I'm sure I'll forget completely. I know pictures don't tell the whole story but they certainly help cue up those memories and give you a nudge in the right direction.

It used to be that I wouldn't take many photos, or would have to ration them because the film and the actual developing was expensive, and so I don't have that many photos from my younger years. It also seemed the way that guys didn't really take photos although girls usually did. I'm not sure why, but it's probably got something to do with handbags!

It wasn't until I was at University, maybe as late at 2001 that I actually handled a digital camera (a kodak I think), and it belonged to the Students' Union. I took some photos but didn't realise it's potential until I started web design, and in this case building the Union's first ever website. I would go and take pictures at events and then upload them to the site the same evening, and this would bring many visitors to the site, all eager to see their faces online.

That website is now long gone as when I left there I wasn't able to continue the site, and there was no one there who was able to commit to the site, or indeed have the knowledge, and so I referred them onto another company who could help them out for free. I realised last night that I still had quite a few of the photos on my PC, and it was about time that they got uploaded onto my Flickr.

Most of them are from the Wednesday Sports Fed Nights [Wednesdays in the UK are typically when the University Sports teams play their fixtures] although there are a few others in there.

I'm sure I've got some more photos on an old hard-drive somewhere and will have to check.

My flickr sets are in chronological order to if you want to see these photos then scroll to the bottom.

Tumble and Fall

Is it just me, or is blogger being a bit shit at the moment and not letting me post? [we'll see if this one gets out].

When I've tried to publish I get this:
There were errors.
001 java.net.ConnectException: Connection refusedblog/28/44/5/ademblog/archives/2006_10_01_ademblog_archive.html

I googled around and someone suggested trying to post through another browser, and voila here the post is. It still comes up with the above message but the post does appear.


Baby it's cold outside.

I've got another cold!! I felt it coming on Friday afternoon and it was in full force by Friday night which has meant that I've stayed in all weekend and not gone out socialising. After all who wants to see someone who's continually sneezing and wiping their nose?

Isn't it rubbish that I've worked all week, got ill for the weekend, and then I'm back at work tomorrow!! I blame the bloody students!!!

Get your motor running, head out on the highway

My car is getting old....

Yesterday I broke the 100,000 miles barrier on the speedo, and I recorded it for prosperity.

When it's cold outside, I've got the month of May

It's gone all quiet around here at the Big Blog. I've got plenty of stuff to say but I can be bothered which is a bit of a bummer.

One thing I have got to say is that strangely I'm actually enjoying the wetter weather! Usually when summer finishes I get a bit depressed as It takes so long for it to return, but thinking about it I probably have my fondest memories from this time of year and over winter.

My birthday is at the beginning of December, then it's Christmas, the New Year, and of course it's nice to have a few days off.

I like being able to wear a coat and being cold outside but warm inside (It's true what they say about feeling the benefit.)

I like the season too in the fact that it's definitely Autumn and Winter. I suppose it's good that we still actually have seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter), as soon we won't (I don't think), as they all seem to be blending together.

So roll on winter!!

I can only disappoint you 'cos I always let you down

Back to work then eh?? I's been a busy weekend and I am absolutely knackered!!

On Friday I went Ten Pin Bowling and drinking and got home around 2am. Then I had to get up at 7:15am so that I could go paintaballing wit hthe footy lads. I don't mind getting up early but the place we went was a shambles, and although they asked us to be there for an 8:45am start, we didn't actually get going until 11am, which meant a lot of pissing about.

That's never the way to start a day out and will obviously not put you in the right frame of mind, but I was willing to let bygones be bygones and have fun, but the day was very poorly managed and organised and I can say that I won't be going paintballing there again. In the end we left at 3pm as we'd only played 6 games (6x 10 minutes) in the 6 hours we were there, the marshalls were rubbish and didn't know what was going on, and we thought we'd try and rescue what was left of the day. Their site even says that there is a maximum capacity of 75 players, so why was it that 130 people were playing on Saturday? simply put, I think they saw the £ signs and sacrificed quality for quantity. Do not go there.

I stayed in on Saturday night and played some Football Manager 2007 and then Dan popped round and we played Pro Evo 5 for a while. Here's my next annoying rant... I pre-ordered FM2007 from CD-Wow, and so expected it on the doorstep on Friday when it was released, but on Friday I got an email saying they wouldn't be posting it 'til today (monday 23rd), which annoyed me as what's the point of pre-ordering then? I really wanted the game for the weekend and got it in HMV only paying a few quid more, and will be selling the copy I finally get from CD-Wow to another friend.

Yesterday was football in the morning, some decorating in the afternoon, a bit of chill-out and then work in the evening. It was 'Film Night' at the Uni and we were going to be watching 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dean Man's Chest'. Now it's not as simple as buying a DVD and putting it on the TV, I have to rent the DVD from an official supplier who has rights with the film studios to show films in public, and do you know how much it costs to show a film?? OVER £100!!!

Why does it cost so much? Well, you know at the beginning of films they go on about showing them in public, on oil rigs etc, well obviosuly the University Bar is a public place and so to comply with licensing I can only go through Filmbank, which is a shit load of money. We are showing the films fortnightly and for the past 2 I haven't charged, but this week I did charge £1 entry and we got 46 people in which is a good number and will subsidise the costs, but I was very pissed off when the DVD kept pausing at certain points, which is not at you expect when shelling out that sort of money. When it had done it for the umpteenth time I paused it and asked everyone if they still wanted to watch it, they said yes, and we carried on. It still did it and so I asked again, they said yes but frankly I wouldn't want to watch a film that kept pausing and so I told them that next time the film would be free.

Why can't some peopel do their jobs?? So a weekend of disappointments, and a very poorly written post by me. I hope you had fun.

Talk of the way they saw him last

Following my earlier post I've found another photoshop mock-up I did last year.

Click here for the post.

Local boy in the photograph

In my group of friends we don't normally do Birthday presents and usually a pint will suffice, but I usually like to make something, so for Tim's birthday yesterday I made him this and put it in a frame. I picked a bodybuilder as Tim thinks he's got pecs but he's only got manboobs.

and here's the original of Arnie.

It's okay, although I could've made it a lot better if I had some more time, but on things like this there's always things you would like to improve.

Here's on of Phil who's Birthday was in August. He's a West Ham fan so this was an obvious choice.

And the original.

I have got some others lying around and may post them up if I can find them.

My old desk doesnt arabesque

I mentioned that I'd been having a tidy-up, and I've moved my Desktop PC upstairs because I didn't really use it as much as I do my laptop. My laptop does what it says on the tin and I mostly use it whilst sitting on the sofa with it on my lap, but this isn't the best way to work and causes me to slouch a bit.

I've already got a docking station for my laptop and so I've invested in a new desk [£19.99 from Argos!]. The plan is to set up the docking station with all my USB devices pugged into it meaning I'll do more work at the desk, although it'll be simple to still whip the laptop out.
I did see some very nice desks in the Argos catalogue but thought better against spending £100 on one, if I really want to stick to my guns.
What a boring post eh? I'll be posting again this evening to talk about how my day went for this.... maybe.

From Russia with Love

And on a comedy theme... this seems to be getting good reviews.

War! What is it good for?

I enjoy watching the The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and in particular enjoy the segments from John Oliver.

Here's a clip from this week's show [in which he does actually break his nose]. I particularly like the Princess Di section. enjoy

War! What is it good for?

I follow the Moskva, Down to Gorky Park

Not long 'til Monday now and the weekend is almost over. What did I do?? Well on Friday I went out in Canterbury, got drunk, made a prat of myself, and felt hungover for the beginning part of Saturday. I got back from Canterbury at around 3pm of the Saturday having crashed on Jonny's sofa, and decided to try and be a bit productive, and so mowed the lawn, tidied up the shed, and had a general clear-up in the garden.

I decided not to go out in the evening, which was good as nobody else was going out, and carried on cleaning a bit and moved around a bit of furnature [woo hoo], but it was actually nice having a bit of time to myself and I even got to watch some good TV [a rare occurance especially on a Saturday]. I was flicking through the channels on my Freeview box and stumbled across a subtitled German film called 'Good Bye Lenin!', and lately I would've skipped over it but it got my attention and I have to say it's a very good film.

The basic premise of it is that it's 1989 in East Germany and a young man's mother has a heart attack and falls into a coma. She awakes 8 months later unaware that in that time West and East have united and that her communist life is gone, but knowing that any shock could kill her, the young man pretends that the GDR is still intact, and he devises some complicated ruses to maintain his mother's ignorance of Germany's re-unification and the failure of communism in her beloved East Germany.

It's brilliantly filmed and you can watch it again on BBC4 on Tuesday 17th October at 11pm, and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes these kind of quirky European films.

I then watched Philadelphia afterwards and got to bed around 1:30am. Today I went to football [we won 5:1 but I was an unused sub], and this afternoon chilled out. This evening I was running a quiz night at Uni and it went really well with 42 people taking part, although I am tired now as I didn't finish there 'til gone 11pm.

I'm just watching CSI and then off to bed for me.....

Keep on running

I'm a little bit tired today as I've played football for the past 3 days. Tuesday was indoor 5-aside, Wednesday was a match on a full-size pitch, and yesterday was a match on astro-turf. It was yesterday's one that rired me out as I started getting shin-splints from running on the hard ground, but never mind as the weekend is here, and I've got Sunday League football, but I expect to be on the bench for that game as I missed last weeks match because I was in Balham.

This afternoon I've got meetings in Canterbury and so I've decided to go out there tonight and I'll crash on Jonny's sofa. I'm not sure what we've got planned but I'm sure it'll involve beer and pubs.

In response to yesterday's post, I did treat myself, but only to the tune of £19.49, by pre-ordering Football Manager 2007 for the PC. The cheapest place I've seen it is at CD-WOW where it costs £20.49 (But I found a £1 voucher in the Uni bar today and used that! Winner!). I've been playing this game since 1993 through all its incarnations and I still love it. Expect a blogging hiatus when it arrives!!

Have a good weekend all.

now you been maxing out my card

Am I growing up, being more mature, and 'doing the right thing'? Well earlier on in the week I was going to treat myself and buy a new camera, but I've decided that I'd be better off paying off some debt, and so this afternoon paid £200 towards my credit card bill.

On my credit card I owe exactly £2,349.26, and the sooner I get rid of it the better. I initially put about £1,500 on my card in 2003 when I went travelling around Canada and didn't have any savings and instead put everything on the card. I then put another £1,500 on my card when my bank took away my interest free overdraft (I still have an overdraft but not completely free) and so using a 0% balance transfer I put that on another credit card.

Altogether I've actually been very good, and not really put anything on my credit cards, but haven't been able to shift the bulk of the debt. I'v been transferring my balance every 9 months or so so that I can keep 0% intrest which most companies offer. This way whatever I pay in is actually paying off some of my debt and not paying off interest. I've so far done this for 4 credit cards.... and I'm running out, or the companies are getting smarter and introducing fees to transer balances (usually around 2% or £50).

I would like to get rid of my debt with 9 months, which may sound a bit optimistic, and taking into account the £200 I've just paid I owe £2,149.26, that would mean paying just under £240 over 9 payments, which is entirely do-able. I may even try and pay a bit more and get rid of it sooner.

There's no point in me trying to save if I'm always owing money to the bank. I think this is the best thing to do, and I may treat myself at Christmas instead as I was doing the Christmas Club at my old pub job and have at £250 saved with them, which is a bonus. I could get that back now but am not going to.

I need to stick to this.

A change would do you good

I mentioned a while ago that I might change my blog template and voila... here you go.

What do you think... and be honest. I've obviously still got a back-up of my original template so can go back whenever I want. I'm also gonna maybe change a few bits on this one anyway.

Just comment away so I can have a few pointers. Tell me what you like and what you don't like.

End of a Century

Blimey... It really hits home when someone young dies. I've just got back from work and found out that Paul Hunter, the snooker player has lost his battle against cancer and has died at the age of 27.

He'd been battling cancer for the past 18 months, and even returned to playing again this year but eventually succumbed to cancer of the colon.

He led a very full life, turning pro at the age of 16 and winning 5 major titles, including at hat-trick of Masters, but leaves behind his wife and young daughter, and could have lived a lot more.

Read more here.

In his post match interview following his 2004 Masters title win, Hunter caused a media sensation by admitting he resorted to "Plan B" with Lyndsey Fell, his fiancee, during the interval while 6-2 down. The 'B' in "Plan B" purportedly refers to the word "bonk". Hunter and Fell retired to their hotel room and he recalls "Sex was the last thing on my mind. I just wasn't in the mood. But I had to do something to break the tension. It was a quick session - around 10 minutes or so - but I felt great afterwards. She jumped in the bath, I had a kip and then played like a dream. I reeled off four centuries in six frames. I won easily."

You took an instamatic camera and and pulled my sleeves around my heart.

So I got paid full-time this month and have a little bit of money extra. A while back I posted that I was going to treat myself to a new camera but I haven't of yet, and in 2 weeks time I have to pay the car insurance... so I'd better buy my camera soon whilst I have 'spare' money [yes I know I should wait to pay the car insurance off first!]

I've got 3 choices though of what to do and I'm in a bit of a pickle. I can:
1)Buy the Bulky Digital SLR, 10x optical zoom, type which is cool for outside long-range nature shots. But is very bulky and not good for taking out socially.

2)I can buy a slim, limited zoom one, for taking out socially and which will easily fit into a pocket, but is no good for my sports photos I take as is limited in options

3) I can buy both types.

It's a hard predicament to be in. Ideally I think I'll have to buy both and in reality as it's getting colder the truth is that the vast majority of my photos will be of a social nature and will be taken indoors, and so a 10x zoom is not needed...yet.

If I get the small digital one then I don't want to be spending more than £90. The SLR one I want will cost around £150, and obviosuly any money I spend on the little camera is money that I could've spent on this one... but then again I could just buy that one first and then get the little one!!! Arggh!! Decisions Decisions. (I've just gone back onto the Ebuyer site and they are out of stock!!! But Amazon have it!)

I definitely need 2 cameras. A good one... and a fun one.

Can anyone recommend a cheap, small, digital camera??

p.s. I think I'm gonna order the Fuji Finepix S5600 anyway and bung in a 1GB XD card too! I'll do that either tonight or tomorrow!!!!

Its a gas gas gas.

On Saturday one of my sisters friends had with them what they claimed was a dispenser for Nitrous Oxide, Laughing Gas in normal terms, and I thought he was having us on.

He filled up a balloon with this gas dispenser and proceeeded to breath in and out of this balloon and once he had stopped he started giggling uncontrolably. You can buy these kits form quite a few places, Boss of Nos, being the particular one this was bought from, with the kits including a dispenser, gas cartridges and balloons. The idea is to fill the balloon up with gas and only breath the air in it, recycling it back and forth, which causes you to get the maximum use of the gas. I'm sure this involves a little bit of asphyxiation as you are limited with oxygen which contributes to the effects felt (although N2O actually has more oxygen in it than atmospheric air).

I tried it and I must admit that a bit of 'normal' air got into my breathing as I wasn't quite sure how to do it, but once I'd finished off the balloon I did feel odd, and yes I did start laughing, with other symptoms being 'funny feeling hands'. Within a minute or so it had worn off but I'm sure if I did it again then I'd be better and breath in the gas properly.

I am also sure that there is still some kind of placebo effect as you can't help but laugh when others are watching you and maybe act up a little, but the gas certainly had an effect.

These dispensers were originally used for making whipped cream, where the Nitrous Oxide whould be mixed with the cream as it leaves the nozzle to produce four times the amount of whipped cream, or you can use no cream, stick a balloon on the end, and have a bit of fun.

For note, I checked up on Wikipedia to learn a little bit more, and maybe it isn't completely clean fun:

The recreational use of nitrous oxide is restricted in many districts of theUnited States. In California, for instance, inhalation of nitrous oxide "for the purpose of causing euphoria, or for the purpose of changing in any manner one’s mental processes," is a criminal offense under its criminal code (Cal. Pen.Code, Sec. 381b).

It can also not be completely good for you:

Nitrouse oxide can be habit-forming, mainly because of its short-lived effect(generally from 1 - 5 minutes in recreational doses) and ease of access. Death can result if it is inhaled in such a way that not enough oxygen is breathed in. While the pure gas is not toxic, long-term use in very large quantities has been associated with dangerous symptoms similar to vitamin B12 deficiency: anemia due to reduced hemopoiesis, neuropathy, tinnitus, and numbness in extremities. Pregnant women should not use nitrous oxide, because chronic use is also
teratogenic and foetotoxic

Worth a laugh though eh? (Read here for an article about N2O in UK Clubland). Most of the pages you'll find seem to be against it's abuse, and I agree that some weak-willed persons may get addicted to it, but isn't that the truth with everything?

Let's all meet up in the year 2000

In my last post I mentioned I was going to Balham on Saturday for my Sister's Birthday, and on Saturday morning I saw that Stef had commented that he was going to be in Balham too!!! Coincidences eh??

One of Stef's mates was running a night at 'Snug' next to the 'Duke of Devonshire', and I decided that I'd pop in later that night to see if he was around. I've never met Stef before but I visit his blog everyday.... mostly to learn about bar snacks.... and I've never met a fellow blogger, but when fate pops up like that then I'd have to nip in and see him.

I got to Balham in the mid afternoon and asked my sister if she knew where it was, and lo and behold it was about 30 seconds away from her house, so everything was go, and I decided tht I'd go at about 9pm, when I thought he'd be there, as there'd be nothing worse than turning up and being a Billy-no-mates.

I had a few beers or four at the party which was in full swing, and told my sister that I'd be back in a little while, and so I slipped out and made the very short journey to 'Snug', which used to be a restaurant but is now a trendyish bar. Luckily Stef takes A LOT of photos and shares them on Flikr so I knew who I was looking for, but as I made my way though I still couldn't see him but as I got to the bar [typical of Stef] I kindof recognised the man standing there although it was just the back of his head, and as I swivelled around to get a portrait view it was him! HELLO!!

It was slightly odd to be meeting someone for the first time with who you know only through a blog, but it didn't take long to get comfortable in conversation, and I've got to say that Stef was a good host, introducing me to most of the people there, and explaining our 'odd' situation. As an added bonus I met 'Gordy' who is a regular on Stef's Blog, and in my second visit of the night [I'll explain later] I also met fellow blogger 'Cheezy'. As I said I met lots of his other friends [I don't remember all their names.. sorry], and I also met his wife Sherry, who is as lovely as he always says.

[Me and Stef]

I left 'Snug' at 11pm as I thought I'd better get back to the party, but I said I'd return later, and so I went back to discover that my sister had already gone to bed!!! A few too many tequilas and a session of praying to the porcelain God had rendered her unconscious and so I was definitely gonna be popping back to 'Snug' but stayed at the party till 1ish.

I stayed at 'Snug' till around 3am and when I got back the party had finished and everyone had gone home or gone to bed. I am officially the hardest person at that Party!

Sadly I didn't get any photos of the night but Stef's mate Dylan posted photos of the night at Dontstayin.com so have a browse.

Do I know anymore about Stef now than I did before?? People can put out whatever they want on their blogs and a lot of people hide a lot of their personality on their blogs, but I think you'll find that Stef is exactly like he is on his blog. I was not disappointed and the only thing that was missing was Stef puffing on a big cigar!

I had a cracking night mate - cheers.

Friday, October 06, 2006

Come on get up everybody!

So it's Friday Night and what am I up to??

"The weekend has landed. All that exists now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties. I've got 48 hours off from the world, man. I'm gonna blow steam out my head like a screaming kettle, I'm gonna talk cod shit to strangers all night, I'm gonna lose the plot on the dancefloor. The free radicals inside me are freakin', man! Tonight I'm Jip Travolta, I'm Peter Popper, I'm going to never-never land with my chosen family, man. We're gonna get more spaced out than Neil Armstrong ever did, anything could happen tonight, you know? This could be the best night of my life. I've got 73 quid in my back burner - I'm gonna wax the lot, man! The Milky Bars are on me! Yeah!"

or... I'm staying indoors watching the Hollyoaks double bill on E4, then gonna play a bit of Pro Evo and chill out for the evening and see if there are any films on later.

Tomorrow I'm off to Balham for my sisters 28th birthday and I'm sure I'll be having a few drinkies there and not getting too much sleep, so tonight is for recharging the batteries.

For those of you that didn't know the quote above if from Human Traffic, which I saw again the other night. Watching it gave me a lot of nostalgia. Now before you get carried away.. no definitely not for the drugs, I never went near them, but just the attitudes, being young, and really go for it and partying. Oh dear, I'm slipping into old man mode again!!!

Anyway it was nice nostalgia, as the film came out in 1999, the year I went to Uni, and obviously partied a lot. I'm looking forward to tomorrow as I'll be in a different setting and be with lot's of different people who I don't really know [I do know my sister though]. I think I'll get drunk.

Let the bodies hit the floor

Today I woke up and was all phlegmy with is usually the first sign of me being a bit poorly. My suspicians were confirmed when I got out of bed and ached all over, feeling knackered and with a terrible headache.

I emailed work to say I wasn't going to be in for the morning.... and now it's afternoon and I'm still at home. I could go in now but I really don't feel like it. I did do some work this morning but that tapered off once I started watching the educational programmes on Channel4 [I got a few tips on starting up my own business... woo hoo... something to put to the back of my mind now] and now I'm deciding what time I will actually go to work. I think around 3ish will be cool.

I know why I'm ill too. Basically it happens whenever I've been busy and then stop. I have been working solidly for the past 2 weeks and haven't had time to get ill or feel tired, but Uni has calmed down and now I've got a bit more time to myself I get some kind of bug. Usually I'll get a throat infection too, but that hasn't arrived yet.

Anyway.. back to doing bugger all and then going back to work.

So I turned myself to face me

I've used the same blogger template for the past 29 months and am wondering if it's time for a change.

I've prided myself on leaving it this long and am proud of it's poor design.

But what design do I go for?? There are the obvious ones that are already on Blogger but why settle for something ordinary?? I've seen one I do like here, but I'm also tempted to make a template from scratch, but that could be a bit of hassle.

I'd ideally like to switch my blog over to wordpress, but I can't use wordpress on the PCs at work where I admit I do post from time to time. I think I might lose a few readers too if I switched... not too sure.

What do you think??

update: I also managed to find time to finish this website for Amy. Amy is a friend of someone else I did a site for and she asked me to make her a site, and although I said I was going to be really busy she still wanted one from me, and so a few months down the line I finished it. In reality it only really took a day to finish, but hey that's what you get for hiring an amateur like me. I was annoyed I took so long but all finished now.

I don't believe this, will everyone stop gettin' shot

Friday Night was the Fresher's Ball in Canterbury and I'd booked a coach to travel from our campus to the main one where the 'Bak 2 Skool' Ball was being held. It was a good night although the SU didn't sell as many tickets as it wanted to. I got drunk and danced my tits off to Sash! and Oxide & Neutrino.

I got the coach to drop me off before it got back to campus but I was still a mile from home and with my dragging feet it took ages!! And then the next day I had to walk the 2 miles back to campus to pick up my car... and my bike which had been in the bikesheds for a week!! I was annoyed to find my back tyre on my bike was flat but I'm yet to discover if it was a puncture or someone's done it deliberately.

I didn't go out last night and instead played on Pro Evo 5 for ages. Today I went to footy, didn't play, and have then chilled out all day in readyness for a busy week at work again.

And how has your weekend been??
