“Raincheck?”

About half an hour before I was supposed to meet with my mortgage advisor yesterday, he rang me up and cancelled the appointment. Grrr!

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.

Joining The First-Time Buyer’s Club

Well, I went and saw the mortgage advisor yesterday, and as expected he went through a few bits and pieces with me about the different types of mortgage available and whatnot. Afterwards, he set me some “homework” to do between now and the next time I see him.

Again! Again!

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.

And Andy Warhol Thinks He’s Good

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!

New Set For Download

Take me to your leader!

Morning all!

And what a way to start the morning! I spent about six hours yesterday recording a new mix, which I’ve now uploaded and put on the site for you to download. Yay, me!

Strangely, I found out that the WordPress template I’m using doesn’t allow for comments to be posted on pages (only blog posts like this one) and so people can’t actually leave feedback about my sets. I suppose people can leave comments here, but it’d be nice to have the comments on the page that the set can be downloaded from. I’ll have to look into that.
