why can’t they just get aircon in here???

Wednesday, July 4th, 2001

yes, the question that everyone seems to be asking, why the f*ck can’t adt get air conditioning put in?? i mean, its just too hot to do any work (great excuse, i know :)) but it is annoying too…. grrrrrr! :angry:

anyway, i’m like settled in to my job now, but there still ain’t much to do, i’m looking at redesigning the website, but until it cools down, my brain just ain’t gonna function :lol:

this weekend lark is taking too long to arrive, we’ve finally got enough cash, (and organisation :P) to go and book our holiday! hurrah! ibiza here we come, well, if they got any space left :P
the cars playing up again, methinks the gearbox is on its last legs, but whilst it still goes, i’m still gonna drive it, and then perhaps get a new one when it dies on me :)
gotta get my uni acceptance form in soon, i’ve chosen the course i want to do, just a shame i didn’t apply for it :) so a bit of grovelling to switch is needed, but just for the records - G500 - Kingston University - Computer Science.

ah, and if anyone is reading this and in the uk, log into and put yourself in. then you can try and contact all your old mates. it lists like every school in the uk and goes back years, so should be worth a try! i found umm, 10 ppl :)
bengy + ghekko status:!: - things couldn’t be going much better, well, unless we like see each other more often, and i can quite often be found chanting ‘noo loo, noo loo’ cause i miss her so much :) espec with the holiday coming up, things will be great!

so reality check, i’m stuck in a horribly hot room and have still got 6 hours or so before i can leave… DAMN YOU!

back in the big league

yes my dear friends, i have been mixing again, and it was SO GOOD…. hurrah, ppl were downstairs and it just seemed to get better and better (a few did drift i admit, but it wasn’t so noticeable).

yeah, so i’ve put in my order request to sapphires to try and get them to barter down to £1000 (thats for 2 technics sl1200m3d’s a vestax pmc270a and 2 ortofon concorde pro carts), i dunno if they will but i bloody hope so!

on the gowry front then, hows it going, well apart from a minor hickup on friday (damn hickups!) its going swimmingly :) :P and she seems to be happy too :P
what else we been up to, well not a lot really, just chilling, driving, drinking (ah! you see the order ;)) and sleeping… oh, and of course, having sex :P
hmmmmm…. i hope her mum don’t ever read this….

anyway, fathers day, a fantasic event, me having to get up early to make it back home to give darling father his present (a cool little man in a suit on a skateboard which is radio controlled! :)) but we didn’t have any batteries…. bummer….. :) and then just to dinner, before i left him and spent the rest of the day at cheryls :)
today, ah! yeah, my brakes went, the front one just locked up and was making nasty noises. i coulnd’t afford to fix it so dad kindly said he would pay.

so this morning i took it to the garage, come back at end of day and it all done :) woo hoo! ask dad how much it was ……. £160 madness! they changed the pads, drums and cleaned everything up! wow!!

anyway, i was happy cause the car was fixed, so i got in a drove it off….. like, 1 minute (perhaps even less) it was doing it again! so i took it back tro the garage…

hang on says the guy, and calls another chap over, who promptly jacks the car up (30 seconds) rotates the wheel (2 seconds) scrapes dirt off the inside (5 seconds) lowers it down (1 second) and then proceeds to say its now fixed!!!


well as it turned out, the brake fluid seal was broken and leaking…… so i guess the moral is, believe the signs :) hehehehehe…. what if i’d been on a hill :)
hahahahahahahahaha :rolleyes:
anyway, i’m in a hyper mood now and need to go ring gowza to proclaim my undying love….. or something like that :)

Life can be complicated, but sometimes its great
