back in the big league

Tuesday, June 19th, 2001

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 :)

i am now starting out in the real world :D cisco here i come

Monday, June 19th, 2000

well, today has been quite eventful (eventually) as i have been the cisco technician for the training going on here. Basically, i sit in the room making sure all the computers are running ok, showing people about peer2peer networking, and screwing up how to plug in network cards :D
Got a message today from Martika, seems she is back and well…

Hey there Martika!!

Anyay, yesterday was a lazy enough day, up at 11 to get ready for fathers day. Was a bit pissed off cause i had stayed up to watch the ‘lusty latina’s’ on tv until around 2am :D Still trying to work out the definition of ‘latina’, oh and btw, it wasn’t a porn flick :) just tasteful topless :D :lol:

We went over the common to the pub there for a meal for dads’ fathers day thing, where the food was nice, beef, but WAAAAAAAAAY too much vegetables :) I left most cause i hate em! Even the waitress said ‘oh be a good boy and eat all your greens’ hehehe…. maybe just for her ;) :P
After this, me and tom went down clapham junction to try and find a frisbee, not such a hard task you would think…. WRONG!

We spent around half an hour going through all the shops, but jsut couldn’t find one, so in the end had to plump for scatch (which didnt even stick :().

Anyway, it was soooooo hot, and on the way up to the common we started to regret the idea, especially when we say cheryl and marc hadn’t brought the water (although she did redeem herself by getting one from the garage). Once on the common in the shade though, i was happy :D
There was a group of, hmm, 12 year olds up in the dog free zone, who seemed to be having the most violent game of footie i’ve ever seen, they even turned on tom and marc for a mass rumble (i stayed well clear :)) and we ended up playing with them for a bit.

Got home at about 7 to fix my bike tyre, well put a new one on, but had to go at about 7:40 with haroon to try and fix someones computer (which in the end took 3 hours, but did earn me £20… woo hoo!) so got home at about 10:40 (ish) missing my shower, but with the smell of food in the air, who am i to complain :)
Sleep, pah! Was watching tv until about 12:40 (i know, i know) so finally got off a bit later than that. Any more, and i will die of the heat, if i remember anything, i’ll tell u later….

nothing ever happens to me :( I WANT MORE ACTION!!! :lol:
