I’ve noticed a surge in users who’ve registered on the site lately, although nobody seems to comment on anything, so I’m starting to think that they’re just spam bots. But if not – hello to you all!

I’m gonna winge about work now. There’s nothing wrong with work at the moment, but sometimes the way things work is that we need to wait for other people to finish doing their part of a project in order for us to be able to do ours. So when the majority of the week is spent doing nothing, I feel like it’s all been a bit of a waste of time. I wouldn’t mind if I had something of my own to do (which I actually have, as of yesterday), or better yet, if they let me have the week off and I just came in on the Friday afternoon to do all the bits and pieces I did during the week. That would be mint.

I’d also like to whine about taxi companies. As of this week, I’ve officially got to get cabs into work until I learn to drive, which at this rate, will (hopefully) be soon. But despite me making a regular booking for the same time every day, the cabs have consistently achieved great, dizzying heights of lateness. Every day, they should appear before me at a certain time, which will give them ample time to get me to work. Instead, they choose to sit there and watch my job appear on their little screens, and then they play the “wait-as-long-as-possible-to-see-how-late-we-can-make-him” game. Today, the cab showed up after I actually needed to start work. So I got into work to greetings such as “afternoon Dom”, and, “what time do you call this?”. All very annoying.

On a more positive note, Shooting Stars was on TV last night, and it was just as good as last week. I was surprised to see a guy from the Kaiser Chiefs on there. After wondering what on Earth was going on for the first ten minutes, he seemed to catch on and rather enjoyed himself. As did the fit women, whatever her name was this week.

Hopefully going to see District 9 this weekend. I’ve been waiting for it to come out here in the UK for about 2 months now, and it’ll finally be released tomorrow. Can’t wait!
