Take the Dante’s Inferno Hell Test

Well, this result isn’t really surprising as I believe I must already be there! 🙂

Now, what can I talk about?

There’s not a great deal happening in my life at the moment. That, in of itself, is not necessarily a bad thing, merely a little dull.

I wish the weather would decide what it’s doing. Although it’s still warm enough to go without a jumper, the rest of the outlook looks more like February than the end of April. It’s very windy. So much so that during my cycle home I was having to lean sideways at about 10 degrees to keep from being blown over. I hate wind when cycling.

On other matters, I see that X-Men 2 comes out on Thursday and The Matrix Reloaded is out in about a month’s time. Also, the latest Harry Potter film’s out on DVD, so I can go and rent it and catch up with the saga. I think I’ll do that at the weekend.

Talking of sagas, I see that The Dragons Friendly Society have managed to get all the Noggin the Nog sagas onto video. They’re apparently planning a DVD release but it will require them to renovate the original film stock which has sat in rusting cans held in a chicken coop for the last 30 years. I’m not sure I can hold my breath for those. I may just look into buying the videos.

I’m back!

Well, I’m back at home after my little break in Cornwall.

Other than having problems sleeping last night and a 4.5 hour drive home, I’m reasonably refreshed.

Back to work tomorrow. Oh well.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter one and all.

I can’t stay long as I’m on holiday down in Cornwall, using a dial-up so it’s costing my parents money.

I’ve been doing walking and stuff, and I’m having a restful time.

More updates when I get home.

Hmm.. it make you think.

now, on Bullet, we’ve been discussing how great it would be if instead of
weapons of mass destruction you could have weapons of mass construction.

Varieties could include:-

Thermonuclear power plant cruise missiles.

Hospital cluster bombs (thanks grim).. Though it could be dangerous if children
picked up unexploded ones as they could be crushed by the A&E unit. However,
they would be in the right place for treatment.

Pro-personnel mines would add legs and arms to people they explode around.

Biological weapons would cure diseases.

There are problems, however, you may have collateral construction which could really foul things up.

What do you think?

Bike stuff

Well, the Raleigh rep turned up to the bike shop after all. He took a look at it and told the manager that he could get the part. It’s supposed to be here in a fortnight. Yeah, I’ll believe it when I see it.

So, it’ll be Wednesday then.

Well, it’s Wednesday afternoon.

My bike’s in the bike shop for a second week running so that the Raleigh
rep. can come and look at it and see that the part he keeps bringing is the
wrong part. Last week he didn’t turn up. Both myself and the bike shop manager
is hoping he will this week. Yes, I’m still trying to get the replacement
chain guard for my bike. It’s only been a little over 18 months since I first
ordered it!

As for other things, not a lot is happening other than the nice, cold, sunny
weahter has changed into not so nice, cold, cloudy weather.

Alec might be popping over tonight to see or pick up last week’s buffy on video. I’m not sure which of the two it will be.

That’s about it, really. Other than I’m feeling surprisingly cheerful especially
considering I’ve hardly had any real human contact since last Friday evening.

Oh well.

Tuesday morning comes.

It may be sunny but it’s a bit chilly.

I’ve just discovered two things:

Firstly, Friday the department will be officially closed. This doesn’t mean
a great deal to me. I’m going to be in here anyway saving one holiday day
for another time.

Secondly, the new drinks machine won’t be installed until Thursday now (it
was due yesterday) which means I have another couple of days of being without
the help of machine coffee in the morning. Admittedly, I only use this in
emergencies to get my brain jump started, but it’s an important stand-by.

Life around the department at the moment is totally dead. There’s hardly
anyone around at all and no-one I can really have a conversation with. It’s
getting to me a little but I’m fighting the feelings of isolation and this
mornign I’m not feeling too bad about it. Definitely better than I was feeling
yesterday afternoon.
