We Are Family

Where was I… I’ve completely lost my train of thought. Either way, its great to see my sis again!

Friday evening we had a good night in. Watched some Jeff Dunham and the 198th episode of “Never Mind the Buzzcocks”.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Speak to you soon (except you Bex, I’ll speak to you now!)

London Calling

Sorry about the long gap between posts. I’m writing this now so that later when I meet everyone and they say “you haven’t posted on your blog since tuesday” I can say “you mean, you haven’t read the lastest one?” So there you go.

Anyway. My week. Yes. It’s been alright. Me and Josh went swimming on Wednesday, what can I say, I’m sure your all familiar with the whole swimming thing.

Maths test on Thursday was very depressing. I had done plenty of revision, but certain elements of the test just proved to be awkward. Good to see Maths tests returning to what they used to be, painful!

Also on Thursday I had a test in Labs, however that went a bit better as it was very easy. So overall a balanced day at the very least.

Friday. This week our Programming lectures were rejigged so both were on Friday. That was good news for me and I’m finding the programming very interesting at the moment, and this week was no exception. Friday afternoon labs were learning how to use a pillar drill. I thought this would be a fun excercise that I had been looking forward to. It turns out it wasn’t as much fun as I had hoped.

That brings us to Friday night. Helped Stage Crew in Rubix for the Austin Powered themed night. That was good fun, especially seeing the actual Mini Me from the movies!

Saturday I managed to get a bit more sleep than I wanted, resulting in me being an hour late getting into London to watch the new James Bond with an old school friend.

In the evening I was treated to Pizza Express with Mum, Dad, James, Eileen, Victoria and Sarah. Always great to catch up. Needless to say that lots of Heroes and James Bond was discussed.

Anyway got to go, your all arriving…

Home Sweet Home

This weekend i’m back in London. Why? Diggnation of course. Now that probably doesn’t make any sense to any of you so let me explain. As part of my daily life I watch several technology shows online: CNET, Tekzilla, Click, WinSuperSite, All About Microsoft and … Diggnation. Diggnation is a weekly technologty show where two guys, Kevin and Alex, talk about news stories from the past week. The show is filmed in America, and they occasionaly do live shows where they film the show infrom of an audience. Last night, the show was filmed in London! So I was there.

I know that’s a really bad picture, but that’s all I got.I had a really great time and and enjoyerd it loads.

Since I was ‘in town’ I thought “why not go and visit all those people I used to know, like my parents. So here I am. For 1 night only.

Tonight I’m going to the Servers Party in church (hope to see a few of you there!) and then tomorrow I’m off, but this time to Birmingham for my Auntie’s Birthday Party. So three parties in three days, who can complain.

  • Happiness: 7/10
  • Workload: 5/10
  • Last meal: Cereal (honestly I do eat other things as well!)
  • Thought for the day: DIGGNATION!!
