Personal: Too tired

November 16th, 2002

Blarg! I was planning on actually going “out on the town” tonight, but since it’s now 10.15pm and I’m still in my dressing gown I think it’s doubtful that I’m going out now. To think, I was awake around 8am this morning after having a couple of slightly strange dreams (one about a possible horror movie theme and the other about a new lift/elevator design: don’t ask!), but after having pancakes for lunch I thought “Hmm, I’ll go out tonight and I may need my energy”. So I set the alarm on my phone for 4.30pm and went back to bed around 2.30pm: good two hours sleep so I thought.

Westlife - Unbreakable: The Greatest Hits
Well…then a friend sent me a couple of emails to one of my HotMail accounts – which sent an alert SMS text messages to my phone – briefly waking me up, and then my Mum called asking if I could add the Westlife – Unbreakable: The Greatest Hits album to my already large order. Now it’s 3pm so I decide to set my alarm for 5pm. I set it, double-check it (yep, “Alarm is set”, yep time is 5_pm_) and head back to dreamland. 9pm I wake up with no recollection of my phone alarm going off. Ooops!

Oh well, such is life I suppose. I’m not sure whether to continue writing some PHP code (I was considering watching Have I Got News For You, but it isn’t on tonight due to yesterday being Children In Need night), watch a video, read a book or just go back to bed… The plan for tomorrow is to tidy the house a bit, call my GESF, maybe call my ex-fiancee (I’ve heard she’s been asking about me) and prepare to go to Karaoke on Monday night (as it’s been nearly a fortnight since I got those flowers from “Kim” and I’ve heard nothing from her since and Monday night it, IMHO, my best chance of bumping into her).

Weird: Sick Grilling Machine

November 16th, 2002

Uck! My father’s mentioned he would like a George Foreman Baby George Lean Mean Roasting Machine (why can’t they just say ‘Grill?’) for Christmas. Uck! Yes, I know babies are the “other other white meat” (quote from ‘Fat Bastard’ in Austin Powers 2), but the fact that somebody actually sells grills to cook babies – uck and double uck!

Everyone knows babies should be boiled…. 🙂

Fun: Weeble+Bob

November 16th, 2002

[Weeble from Weeble+Bob]I’ve been a fan of The Everyday Happenings of Weebl (and sometimes weebles friend Bob + Hairy Lee) site (a Flash cartoon strip about two “weebles” and their antics: quite funny plot lines, good background music and the speech is quite funny as well) for quite a few weeks now and I just can’t wait for the next instalment (at the moment, there’s a filler strip about penguins). If you can’t remember, Weebles were those children’s pointy ended, round-bottomed toys from yester-year that you could push and just wouldn’t fall down.

Anyway, I came across their forums and this doctored photo of a “pony-girl”. Ok, it’s been doctored/Photo-shopped in the way that it’s had a pie added to it (read Weeble+Bob and you’ll understand why), but I wonder where the original photo came from… Does any one know?

It seems my Nigerian spammer “friend” Jerry Duruibe
