Wha’ Goin’ On?!?

“We just want to go home.”

I know I said I’d do a writeup of my time in the USA, and I (probably) still will, but right now I wanted to write about something that I’ve been wanting to see since I saw the trailer for the first time: District 9.

A Typical Day

Posted by | Posted in Personal Shizzle, Random, Society | Posted on 20-01-2009

I don’t think I like having a typical day, to be honest. I don’t think I’m a routine person at all. I can hack getting up at 7am and doing the typical 9-to-5 job just like everyone else, but I’d rather have something a little more unpredictable. Sure, when I’m all settled down in a few years, then yeah, I’ll want something a little more stable and predictable. But for now, I don’t like this “routine” lark.

I’m Back!

Posted by | Posted in Monday Mornings, Society | Posted on 15-12-2008

But only for three days! After having a four-day weekend last weekend, I’m back at work, and ready to go! And by ‘go’ I mean ‘go home again’. I thought I might have found the time to post on the blog during the last four days or so, but I’ve found that unless I’m at work (and hence, have nothing to do) I don’t tend to post very often.

Again! Again!

Posted by | Posted in Finance | Posted on 04-12-2008

Well apparently, the Bank Of England is thinking about cutting interest rates again, this time to 2%. Which in theory, should be good news. Although we all know what happened last time – some of the banks decided they’d pass the savings onto their customers (but not in full, you understand, oh no) and some of the banks won’t pass any savings onto their customers at all. Which kind of defeats the purpose. Those banks will no doubt keep their own interest rates at the same level, meaning more money for them, but it’ll still leave a large proportion of home-owners with a hefty mortgage to pay each month. Again, it comes down to greed.

Now’s A Great Time To Buy A Kitchen

Well as you can see from this news story (and all the others) things aren’t looking too good for high street retailers. Woolworths, one of Britain’s national institutions, is going tits up. In the next couple of weeks there’s likely to be a few other retailers that are going to go the same way. MFI seems to be another one.

Morning all,

It’s been a day or two since I posted because I’ve had issues with WordPress, although it wasn’t WordPress that caused the issue, it was a Firefox extension. Thankfully I’ve got it sorted and the site is back to normal.

The Weekend Approaches

Posted by | Posted in Finance | Posted on 07-11-2008

It’s the best day of the week again today! Although I’m looking forward to the weekend, I’ve got no idea what to do with it yet. After spending last weekend doing not a lot (except drinking – there was lots of that) I figured I’d have a relaxing one this time. I might even post on here for once!

Great News… Not

“Should the Iranian regime-do they have the sovereign right to have civilian nuclear power? So, like, if I were you, that’s what I’d ask me. And the answer is, yes, they do.”

Yesterday, everyone at my workplace was given the delightful news that the company still predicts that, due to the current financial climate, it won’t be making as much profit as previously thought, and so it was asking for everyone to pull together to come up with ideas to help save money. Oh, and it also asked if anyone would be happy to take voluntary redundancy.

And Andy Warhol Thinks He’s Good

Posted by | Posted in Finance, Site News, Society | Posted on 16-10-2008

After posting a random thread on the bestest intertube forum on the (dot)net, I got a whole load of awesome banners to put up on the site. As you probably already noticed, I decided to put them all online and create a banner rotator that will load a banner at random whenever the page is loaded. So a big thanks to Steve, FC, Sammo, and Mikeynma for their efforts!

Werd To The Old School

Posted by | Posted in Finance, Random, Tunes | Posted on 15-10-2008

“Run for the hills!… No, wait, The Hills Have Eyes.”

Yesterday evening I was paid a visit by a family member who’d been stashing away quite a few things of mine for a number of years. They had decided that, seeing as they no longer actually lived at the house in which the items were stored, it was probably time I took them back. And how glad I am that I did.
