Words cannot begin to express how tired I am.

For some reason I just could not get to sleep last night. My dad suffers/suffered(?) from the same "can't stop thinking about stuff (usually work/family related) and quieten the brain" thing. Hopefully that's not so much a problem since 'retirement'..Anyway I'm working from home today so at least I can do something useful like go to the launderette at lunchtime. Oh, and Missman gave me some of her home-ground fancy italian coffee yesterday which is gorgeous and about the only thing keepin my eyes open...the other thing being cigarettes.

How thrillingly exciting my life is...still and all, Lil and I had a wonderful day yesterday.


The cheeky look...

Vox Pix

I am feeling suprisingly lively this evening. It can't last....Liking the 'Broadmead' response on the Meme post, but Buckle, surely you can get over the american thing sometimes. Did you find a grey goat?

I have nothing else to say...all photos taken on the vox except the readymech tableau.

That's not to say that I'm not having a fantastic time!

Paper robot/monster Flo likes to crush them with her mighty fist!

A suitably blurry shot of me and Missman...credits Missman.

Buck's Buck.

Me & Flo playing hide & seek in the bathroom...credits me!

When Chores Attack!

I can't really be arsed. It's late, blogger was down when I had some meagre energy to post, subsequently I have watched several episodes of Nathan Barley which Missman dropped round last night on a surreptitious visit after I'd been round Gaz and Ceri's (gettin' hitched-tastic) for a super sausage 'n' mash session. That boy knows his gravy and loves his music...or both!

Neil mentioned this...but I've been making loads of these...

Reason I'm finally posting so late anyway is that I got Missman on my mind and can't sleep. Damn women get in your head!

Lil's got the mini-baby-snore thing going on which isn't helping...And I'm humming a million songs thanks to Gazatron and the wonderful CD I got 'in the post'.

Gotta sort out the red-eye thing...that was our dinner: Fishcake, Rice, Leeks n Carrots, Cabbage...the sheeps eye looking thing on my plate is a pickled onion...she no like.

Tired...may sleep on the sofa (again).

Get ready for Random Post February cos it looks like I'll be all over the shizzle...


Monday, January 22, 2007


Well, you were supposed to get a post on Saturday night but Blogger was down for maintenance and then I fell asleep...after booking a trip to Edinburgh. Somewhere I've never been...It's not til the end of February, but I'll surely post some pictures.

Lovely weekend again despite the odd behaviour of the weather. Gales, lashing rain, sun, lashing rain, freezing cold, sun...

Anyway, Flo's got her 1st proper shoes! So now of course we have to walk everywhere, which means my walking pace has slowed to between 1 and 3 metres per minute depending on how many leaves/drain covers/puddles there are to step on.

Oh yeah, 201st post!

Bonus Post

Someone wants to say "Hello" and thank Missman for the lovely hat!

Saturday, January 13, 2007


Got the new Gruff Rhys album,'s ace! Gave Missman the cardboard candylion model it came with. She's good at that putting things together stuff so it seemed appropriate.

Bristol's hilly. I sometimes forget quite how hilly...except when walking up the buggers.


Teh Byottifarl Chile and I are both super-tired. She went to bed at 6:30, it's 8ish now and I'm not far behind her.

Last night I displayed my ginger-strength for Missman by accidentally (ha!) ripping a door off the wall, played someone else's guitar which I praised & cursed at the same time and then made 'sex noise' in my sleep...I contend I was dreaming of the iPhone!

Today I mostly got caffeinated then got ripped off here (don't believe a word of it) with Missman and bought what looks like a great book from a Charidee Shop for £6 . Bargain!

Flotos for you....I sleep now!

Eggs Perry Mental

Right. I'm knackered, a bit fed-up of feeling guilty (for no reason) for not posting quite as often or in quite the same rantageous (yes it is a word...if I say so) way as I have in the past. I blame Missman (joke). Actually, because I told Missman of the site I suddenly thought I'd better re-read some of my older posts to see if I came across as some kind of mentalist. What I mean is, a different type of mental from my mental....ya get me?

Also, Ricola better phone me soon or they're in trouble!

By the way, I don't want an iPhone (which you may have inferred from the last post), but that interface does look awesome. If I'm a fanboy at all, I'm a Mac OS X fanboy and possibly not even that as I'd rather it was all free...I'm still running a Debian machine as a server and using the Daptop regularly now I sorted out some of the wireless issues. Somehow though, my Mac Mini has become my machine of choice rather than just the media machine I'd intended.

I'll also admit to heaving several huge sighs of relief at work today; just before I went on Yuletime holiday I realised I might have 'over sold' something to Belgium and that I'd possibly fucked Belgium (ugh!) and thus probably a very, very expensive project right up. I couldn't do anything about it other than worry (not that I do that much) about it a bit over the last few weeks. Anyway, long story short we finally caught up on the matter today and it turns out I'd just twisted it round in my head (and so had one of the Belgo's which was why I was worrying) because their techie guy is definitely on the ball and had also noticed my cunning 'call per service' (too long a story) just wasn't flow-charted correctly. Also, Maggie is back which is really good and I'll be working with her now.

The paragraph above has been written suspecting that Teh Bo55 still has this thing RSS'd or bookmarked. But it's true...and cannot be submitted as evidence for my next Performance Review ;-)

Flo has some seriously sore nappy-area issues, but is happy enough despite being a bit pasty and under-the-weather-looking. She ate loads of Fishcake, Rice, Brocolli and Sweetcorn and was sooo tired she wanted her bed at 6:30 right after her bath (lots of shouting and splashing...and bubbles)...let's hope she sleeps through as I've another killer 2 days at work coming up followed by (hopefully) some debauchery and then a full Saturday...Flo's staying a bit later than usual on Sunday.


Seems I can rant when I have it in me...except now I'm definitely going to bed before 9!

You thought I'd forgotten....haha!

My year just keeps getting better...except Blogger is 'undergoing maintenance' so I can't show you the pic directly...and there's probably no chance of one of these on freebie mode.

Sunday, January 07, 2007


I realise it's been a while since I last posted, but I only apologise a little bit because I've been a bit busy with life.

Speaking of lives, a bloke got shot round the corner from me last night (don't be surprised, it seems to happen about 4 or 5 times a year). A nice policeman kindly re-directed me and Flo the long way round because a whole chunk of St Pauls was cordoned off. Well, I say nice...I'm sure he is, but shouting "Oi, you can't go down there" is probably not as polite as "Excuse me, sir this area is cordoned off"...Anyway.

Flo's a-napping and so I thought I'd take the opportunity to give you the ol' bullet point summary and a photo or two.

  • Work = getting back into the swing of things....escalating stuff
  • Flo = very cute with the whole jumping thing. Latest words are: Hat, Hot, Gone and shouting Dad at me.
  • *Clears Throat* = {insert smiley face here} and blushes.
  • Flat = leak free and fire-alarmed!

Raoul says the tiger!

That is all.

I don't do anything else...boring, huh?

Sorry 'bout the red-eye!
