anyone else remember the Palitoy Barnstormer Stunt Kite from the late 1970’s?
There seems to be no mention of it anywhere on the net.. maybe it was merely
a figment of my imagination.

Vroom, vroom!

morning through the post came an invitation to a SAAB 9-3 Sport Saloon launch
promotional thing happening. So, earlier today i phoned up and booked a slot..
I get to drive one for an hour, get fed some snacks and probably get some
nice promotional freebies. Not that I’m looking to change my car for the
next 8 years or so, but if they’ve invited me to play with their new toy,
who am I to turn them down?

Of course, this has changed all my plans
for tomorrow. I’m still going to have to come into work and install a RAID
array on our server at 10am.. I’m just not sure I’ll be able to get to Witney
and get a haircut and still be back at Oxford SAAB by 2:30pm. I guess it
would be possible, thinking about it, assuming the barber isn’t too full
of school kids having their hair cut. Then again, they should have gone through
that last weekend, before term started.
