Broken lift

This is the lift at work. It seems like its broken more often than working. Its probably from all the big asses in resi customer services.

Quite a lot of people suffer from call centre ass, its a terrible condition. They start with perfectly normal sized and shaped ass, but a couple of months sat on it munching junk and squalking at customers does terrible things.

Anyway, luckily I work on the ground floor so a busted lift doesn't impact me. However for the afflicted masses it means a terrifying walk up the STAIRS



Winter morning sky

It's been chilly the last few days. As I was scraping the ice from my snowmobile (car) I saw this lovely sight. Good work the sun, good work clouds and good work pylons.

Pc weeman

Plod rocks up at ella's place.

So weeman can say mum, dad, night night, bye bye, no no no all pretty well.

He's been over to Nicky friend Vicky's again today. Vicky's daughter is called ella. Her and weeman are friends.

Turns out weemans been practicing saying ella. A lot. As from lunchtime today he can say ella, perfectly.

I feel cheated

Just leaving work for home

 
Once again. CHILLY FUKIN BRRR

Curly Larry & Moe

The 3 public sector boys get into the festive spirit with tinsel headset adornments. None of this bollocks on my team, well not yet anyway. BAH HUMBUG!

Good quality?

Seems like a special kind of virgin media irony that the quality poster is peeling off the wall! :-)
Everyone's got a cold at work, Christmas doo on Thursday though, so I guess it'll all be good.

London village

Awww bless, little old London village has made it into the big time now! No snow in GT5 London, so nothing at all like real London :-)

Top gear test tracks

Good work GT5

My good friend mr gleeson

There has been a light dusting if snow round our parts the last couple of days. Nothing too bad mind.

The carpark I park on at work has been covered in snow for a couple of days now so less people are parking on it. This means when I'm leaving its pretty much deserted :-)

So I was in my freshly scraped and defrosted car pulling carpark handbrake turns, when out of the corner of my eye I saw the rev's car. I skidded over to it whipped out a snow message creator (carpark ticket) and left him a message :-)

I await his response......

Snow

Holy shit it was cold last night. This is coming down over red rock en route to gleeson's.

The much fabled dog poo tree

we've been to the christmas markets today, this is us getting a couple of sausages. 

the food & snacks were good, but i was a bit disappointed with everything else. i hope its just my overall levels of grumpieness and not that there were properly shit. 

way too many knobs there with fuckin massive pushchairs with kids in em, get a back carrier. they're cool, you can interact with your kids, they (your kids) can see what's going on rather than looking at everyones arse (plus from up there if they want to look at arses, they can!) and kids love em. it also means you're not blocking every street while tarquin decides which fluffy toy he wants. 

hehehe i'm so intolerant!

Café culture

GT5 at last

I said to nicky that if it did come out today we would be getting a PS3. Well it did come out, so we've now got a PS3!

As ever I've got something to moan about. I went to game to buy it, they just sell games stuff so they'll not fuck it up. I ask the twat, I mean lady who sold it to me "what video connector does it come with?" She spins the box round and says its the coloured wire HD one I say "is it a HD one? Because it says its an euro AV cable, and that's a SCART lead and they're not HD." Yes says twat, its the coloured HD one. "a red green blue component cable?" I say. Yes she says I got one last week and its one of those. So I takes twat at her word, pays my money and takes it home.

Guess what, when I get it home its a fucking SCART lead! Why does everyone let me down at every possible opportunity. No wonder I'm so intolerant. MONG's everywhere.  

It's taken me 20ish mins to register, log in, set up play station network and update its software. Now I'm just settling down for another 20 mins while it installs itself! Aggghhhhh!

God damn this game better be good......

the 10m air gun range. super plush :-)
carpet on the floor, lights on the roof, paint on the wall. lovely.

the weapon of choice 

Swimming spider

Spiders can't swim in floor cleaner. Here is the proof. We've got a nice clean kitchen floor but unfortunately a member of the spider community died in the process. I'm not sure if I killed it or if it committed suicide?

I quite like spiders so if I did kill it it was entirely by accident. He may have gotten tangled up in the mop strings but who knows, maybe he had just reached the end of his spidery tether?

Farmers market tomora, so we'll have a fridge full of tasty treats tomora afternoon! Mmmmm

piracy rocks



i dont want a triple play pack. i just want a simple blu ray. don't include a digital copy and a DVD copy in a piss poor attempt to justify charging £20 for it. i do not want them and will not buy this because of them.

i will not watch 3 hours of extra shite, i just want to watch the film. i don't want to sit through 30 mins of trailers for films, or a stupid anti piracy message, or a gay ass covering "the views expressed blah blah blah" screen. i just want to put the disk into my player hit close and to be taken to a menu where i can watch the film or watch the film with subtitles.

 i'm not interested in imdb links popping up when i'm trying to watch the film. i just want to watch the film in peace in the highest quality available - hence why i bought a blu ray player. if i want to know more about a part of the film or one of its stars, i'll look on the intenet when i've watched it.

i'm off to download this in glorious 1080p and then watch it without any of the above.

Little miss iPhone

The iPhone has managed to wangle its way into the mr men. Here is little miss scary using her iPhone to thank mr nervous for looking after her house and collecting the parcel she was expecting.

WTF! Subliminal advertising in the mr men...... weeman will not be falling for the iPhone hype. He's android through and through. He likes the green robot much more than he likes an apple with a bite missing.

Pretty quiet day today, sean, shari & aj came round to drop off a present for weeman. Hotdogs has just left he came to do the same. He didn't being emily in because she's got tonsilitus again.

Pasta for dinner, with wholemeal garlic bread (home made) good work kick ass breadmaker :-)

values


in an effort to get the word out, these posters have sprung up at work extolling the virgin values

live the dream people, live the dream

Don't look down

Today I've been up the ladder removing an old phone cable from the wall. I like being up ladders, the view although only a wee bit higher than normal is great :-)

Our all singing, all dancing, high tech, energy efficient, expensive boiler had a wee issue on thursday. The heating still works but there is no hot water in the taps. Boiler man has just left after changing the flow sensor, he said it was only the 3rd one he's done. So no biggie I guess.

Fibre optic broadband

50meg available, 100meg coming soon 200meg trial done and coming next year. Keep up BT :-)

If only virgin media business was as exciting and vibrant as speedy gonzales.

Today has been hellish at work, certain parts of our organisation namely provide & billing seem to be run and managed by rule following, computer says no jobsworths. I've spent all day fixing both provide & billings fuck up's the whole time being chased by collections. Oh if only I had an automatic weapon and a big bag full of bullets. To be fair, planning are almost as bad.

The virgin media business world would collapse into its own arse were it not for my team and a couple of the project managers.

Buy this, it doesn't work...

Yet more shit lying bastard adverts. The voice over on this one says "not ready for drastic measures" the subtitle says results not equivalent to drastic measures!

fireworks

we've been to my parents for some fireworks, a fire and some food tonight. i did my usual trick in going straight outside to get back to my caveman roots.
started tonight's fire oldskool style - fire steel, kindling and a massive cut on my right pointy finger.
despite the rain and wet wood one strike was all it took for the fire to take hold. couple of long blows and we were laughing.
good bit of bbq fireworks food from ma, i made a spicy fruit loaf which went down a storm.
we got through about a dozen pallets, a bed, 2 x scaffold planks, a bucket of logs, half a gardens worth of tree clippings, a christmas tree, several unlit fireworks, a glow stick, a chest of drawers, a bundle of newspapers and several paper plates.



the night may have ended with us firing rockets from a shoulder mounted pipe - which was pretty funny, i may have also sung rocket man at hotdogs......

Comedy in the loo

I used to get quite a kick out of modifying or relocating stickers for comedy effect. Imagine my delight when I happened upon this, it made me certain that others take a little fun from doing it as well :-)
good work secret sticker moving buddies

shooting real guns in wigan



on monday after work i went to the wigan target sports club with a friend from work. i've shot a shot gun on several occasions but never had the pleasure of doing any proper target shooting. no offence clay pigeon people, but your sport is a bit like hitting a barn door with a banjo ;-)

when we got there steve showed me round the place then we got straight down to the action. we started out shooting a .22 rifle laying down at a 2 spot target 25m away. then we moved upto the 50m range and had a go at .22 sat down at 35m on a 1 spot target, we finished on a .455 at 50m both stood up (hard) and sat down (not as much fun as the .22) the photo above is the 50m range, the tiny black dots all the way at the back are the targets.

i'll snap the rest of my targets and stick em up soon enough, for the world to share. as the man kept on saying "its not about hitting the bull when you first have a go, its all about grouping"


the stood up ones are about as hard as you can get if you ask me, and when you think this target was 50m away from me, i'm pretty please with the results.


real bullets from real guns! - in wigan!

we've been to watch the lantern parade in sefton park. its a scouse take on the mexican day of the dead celebrations. during the half term week loads of local kids make lanterns in workshops and the liverpool lantern company also bash up some bigger slightly more elaborate ones. then on sunday night just after it goes dark they all head down to sefton park to mooch round the lake with them. afterwards there is fireworks.
