Bookish fun for the geeks

Find out how much of a geek you are by listing all of the books you own on

There was a spider in my book

No really there was – crawling along the page.  I freaked out and now it’s lost in my bed somewhere :(

Creased Spines

I have decided to make a concerted effort to get through all the Star Trek/Star Wars books I have.  I keep putting it off until I’ve finished with the less geeky ones, but i have come to the conclusion that, that will just never happen.  So.  Just do it!

head *bang* desk

So…I haven’t received my nice new phone – in fact it seems (according to the website the order was complete).  So I phoned the helpline thinking it’ll be a case of “it’s on it’s way”.

But nooooooooo apparently the £15 tariff I’m signed up to isn’t the one with the free phone – WTF?!  I clicked on the link beside the phone?!

So anyway the contract I have is just a one month thing, which i can cancel at the end of the month and take the other £15 which does have the free phone (and unlimited texts which is even better).  Basically I have wasted fucking money I don’t have.

Oh yes and now I’m having trouble getting my numbers from one sim to another.  Feeling fairly frustrated here

Unnecessary complicatedness

Right so my current mobile phone contract is nearly up and I was offered an upgrade thingie

Well really I wanted to change my tariff for a lower one.

I’m with o2 but I normally deal with the Carphonewarehouse.  The carphonewarehouse didn’t have a phone i liked OR a cheaper tariff (as far as I could see on their website)

However i know that o2 do do one.  So went to their website…..found it and with the phone I wanted.  Got a new sim today

So I phoned to check if I could keep my same number  – my number isn’t on the 02 system (because it was done through the CPW apparently).  So I had to phone them.  Apparently I can’t port a number from the same provider…WTF?!

Ironically my new tariff is called simplicity

Spring Cleaning

Well – kind of.

Off for a couple of days as I have so much damned flexi time at work!

So decided to get my hair trimmed/cut whatever and clear out the clothes I no longer/never wear as it’s hard to get space in my chest of drawers anymore.

 So – four black binbags worth.  Fortunately the local supermarket has a clothes recycling bin and I can chuck them in there.

I’m also debating clearing out the bottom of my wardrobe as well – it’s basically shite. 

My problem is that I have short legs and a long back (with big boobs).  So unless I try it on in the store I envitably buy jeans that are too long (since I need at most 29”) or shirts that are too short.  Also I don’t like wearing things that leave the tops of my arms bear because A) I have fat arms and B) my tattoos are on display.  Which I don’t mind but my parents wouldn’t appreciate. Unfortunately elbow length does not seem to be in fashion at the mo

So the moral of the story is try shit on before you buy it

Nothing even vaguely interesting is happening right now – seriously…..

Although I am off work Monday & Tuesday – hurrah does a dance

Evolution of a guild wars character

Well the dress sense anyway

 In the beginningwhen money was to be spent

uberness is achieved


The only thing I regret is the baldness.  I wish I had gone for hair.

February 4th, 2008

and the title is…..

So I went to see Cloverfield at the weekend.

I would have enjoyed the film so much more if it hadn’t made me feel ill.

Seriously – not one for suffers of motion sickness

You would have got a picture but apparently everyone is anti hotlinking :o apparently I can’t even hotlink to my own website

Happy Xmas (belated) Merry New Year (not belated)

Ah so not a bad xmas I must say

For some reason I ended up with 3 hot chocolate mug things.  Which is fine but I don’t really drink hot chocolate.  I shall have to buy some when we go shopping because they give you way too many marshmallows!

The girls won game night!

I drank too much and didn’t sleep too well as I had to sleep on an airbed and I always have problems when I’m not sleeping in my own bed.  Plus it was a single and had an attached sleeping bag thing but it only opened half way down so I felt a bit trapped.

 My study is all done btw and to prove it here are pictures:

Shelves Computer

Yeah the computer desk is a bit messy!

Apparently i have read 31 science fiction/fantasy novels this year.  I have read over 100 books if you include all the mills & boon type stuff as well :)

Coulda knocked me down with a feather!

The brothers girlfriend had a brain tumour.  Fortunately she seems to have come through the surgery okay. Bit of a shock all round and frankly a really shitty thing to happen to such a nice person.  Still waiting to find out if it was cancer but apparently thats really rare in brain tumours (who knew!)

Yahoo blackjack doesn’t like me much at the mo so I’m just going to save before ctr alt deling 


Firstly this neat picture




� Secondly – not long till The Northern Lights aka The Golden Compass.  Of course the christers are up in arms – “it promotes atheism” they whine.  So fucking what if it does?  Atheists are bad people are they?  FUCK YOU!  And they pretend that they’re the fucking persecuted ones.  HYPOCRITES FUCKING HYPOCRITES.  Where were the atheists bitchng about the Passion of the Christ or the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe eh?   Yeah thought so.   If anything they prove the books (His Dark Materials) true.  Religion it’s all about the supression isn’t it! Oh and also  talking armoured polar bears FTW!  Apparently they crush xian belief!  Seriously looking forward to the movie now though.  Might even be getting VIP seats (nice on yer bum I hear :) ).  For your viewing pleasure here is a poster

Some people work at work

So went down to the dentist this morning. 35 minutes spent sitting in traffic, right foot and leg killing me from holding the break. Make it down with 5 mins to spare. My appointment was yesterday. Apparently I am that stupid! Fucking muppet! Have to reschedule – can’t get another appointment till Jan. Fuck. Anyone would think that I fancied my dentist – well may be I do, he’s young not bad looking and intelligent – but I didn’t get to see him anyway. I hope they don’t fine me.

In better news my car insurance quote is £200 less this year than last. Hurrah! Still going to phone and ask if I’ve got the 10% discount for another person in the house having an insurance policy with them.

Still feeling abandonded by Steve, text messages are rarely answered – even one of concern. Fuck it I suppose. If I’m not considered worth even the mild politeness of acknowledgement then I’ll just stop trying. Life is too short to dwell on arseholes. I am getting fairly frustrated at my manager. there’s no energy in him at all to do the work. As i speak he is fiddling with his mobile while beside him sits 4-5 days worth of work. I don’t think I’d mind if he were just slow but he’s just busy doing other more interesting things. This is a common refrain I know.

I shall have to take a picture of our new “study” (ie the brothers old bedroom) soon to have a phone point for net access! Looking forward to it nice to have a bit more privacy in all honesty
