Yes gentle reader, I do not have enough fully formed words for a full blog so I must once again inflict short paragraphs of nonsense on you.
1. The Sopranos is one of the best Television programs I have ever seen.
I have started a thread on the message board about this; I’m very late to the party here but loving the hell out of each and every episode Sky Atlantic throws at me. I am not normally a fan of anything Mafia related, in fact the only gangster movie I like is The Untouchables, but the story of Tony and his Family (in both senses of the word) has me hooked. A damn fine show which is both gripping and thought provoking at the same time.
2. I am being made redundant.
Yep, after six months of joblessness I thought I had struck gold with a job I loved but it turns out it wasn’t to be. I could say more but I don’t want to dwell on it, instead I shall focus on the fact that at least this time round I should be a little better off financially. Oh and i still have to work nights, hence why I am up so late*
3. There are three things on my desk that could sum up my personality.
It’s true, I realised it today as I was searching for jobs. Mr Stay Puft, He-Man and Spider-Man are a pretty good indicator of who I am. I’m not sure if there is any significance to that beyond I’m a nerd but i thought I was a pretty interesting thing anyway.
4. I am an iPhone convert.
My wife upgraded her iPhone to the iPhone 4 and I inherited her 3GS and I have to admit I love the hell out of it. I used to think Apple sucked and my Blackberry was awesome but I’ll admit it, I was wrong and I don’t know why I held out so long. Also Words with Friends is the best Scrabble like game I have ever played.
5. Red Dead Redemption has taken over my life again.
This is a warning to my fellow gamers. Don’t pop the disk back in to see if it’s still as good as you remember. You won’t just play it for a bit before cracking on with an un-played game, it will suck you back in and you will loose all your free time. But feel free to kill Herbert Moon as many times as you like.
Well there you go, as short and pointless blog this time. But I promise to return with a blog about the real inventor of the Internet…. (hint: It wasn’t Al Gore).
*Actually I start tomorrow but I always try and trick my body into the pattern one day before I start nights to lessen the pain.
