Remember the C5
? The Segway
generation should now prepare themselves for the C6
. I'm not totally sure why but I'm finding loads of items of interest at the beeb
recently - I think it's my fondness for reading google news
Less of a diary entry more of a mind dump today. Things have been hectic with work this week - long hours, tight timescales & and drinking to escape it all have lead to me feeling rather bizarre and convinced it should be Friday despite the fact it's quite clearly not and I still have two more days of this to go. Arrrrgggh. I actually managed to configure 4 intranet sites today - IIS
, SQL Server
coding is also hitting new personal speed records. I'm sure by Saturday I'll look back on this week and laugh. Hopefully.
Anyway outside of work I was pleased to find that my failing eyesight was not due to thinking about Fiona too vigorously but because I've been tieing my tie too tight. Top button undone for me tomorrow.
When I got home today I found that the post contained not only the obligatory mountain of mail for the previous occupants of my flat but also my Moonraker album from CD Baby - bless them I needed something to keep me sane. I can't recommend this band enough the sounds are just beautiful.
Finally my goal this week is to make it too Friday as the infamous Jules and I are doing drinks. Me because I will have managed to make through this week (assuming I do) and her because she will be finally off anti-biotics. Photos to follow if I remember.

Not one but two news items of interest to me today - the fact that "Workplace stress increases the risk of dying from a heart attack or stroke" was particularly apt since I finished work at 7.30pm last night and started at 7.15am this morning. I am now slightly tired and disorientated.
The number #1 love in my life is also for the number #2 love in my life. With this realisation I have become a "new man"".
For no other reason than I stumbled across a gallery of Drew Barrymore pics
here are my top 3 candidates for Mrs Lazylaces:
- Fiona Bruce, who as a UK resident I obviously stand most chance with since I might potentially bump into her and I am, of course, irresistable.
- Minnie Driver, based in Hollywood but a frequent visitor to the UK. If she's in London I will probably meet her in my local for a pint. Maybe.
- Drew Barrymore, who I only really like in The Wedding Singer, so unless she's into role play I'd have to say she's a rank outsider.
I've seen a few Scalextrics
flash games around but I liked the music on this one. Very catchy.
