The road to Wembley

January 10th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Life

Crawley Town’s FA Cup road might not go all the way to Wembley, but tonight they discovered that it will at least go as far as Torquay.   It would have been good to get a ‘glamour’ tie against Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal or someone like that (but please not West Ham!)  but on the other […]

Alarming inability

June 9th, 2010 · Comments Off on Alarming inability · Life

I have a licence to drive cars.  It will also allow me to drive pretty large vans and minibuses.  I can operate computers with some confidence and figure out the various combinations of settings and buttons to do all sorts of things on hi-fi separates.  So why do I have some sort of dyspraxia when […]

Kicking myself

April 28th, 2010 · Comments Off on Kicking myself · Politics, Technology

When I get home from work each day and fetch the day’s stack of emails my normal routine is to go through them quickly and delete all the obvious spam and junk.  Then I go through the junk mail folder and extract any ‘real’ mails that have found their way in there. After that I […]

Busting a nut

April 9th, 2010 · Comments Off on Busting a nut · Life

The decorating is done, with minimal damage.  The emulsion should come off the kitten’s face eventually.  The only significant casualty seems to be my bass guitar.  It was propped up in the cupboard and allowed to fall to the floor, strings down, which broke the nut. Only one end of the nut, so three strings […]

Google 3D

April 7th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Life, Technology

Love the 3D version of Google Street View – just need to find one of the many pairs of 3D glasses that are knocking around the house somewhere.  Talking of Google, this advert popped up the other day… My first thought was to doubt the expertise of so-called experts in Google analytics who can’t even […]

Twisted Firestarter

October 21st, 2009 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Here is a photo of what happened when I felt a little peckish and made some toast under the grill. My new theme song is: I’m the self inflicted, mind detonator. Yeah. Im the one infected, twisted animator. I’m a firestarter, twisted firestarter

Spizzenergi t-shirts get you noticed

September 24th, 2009 · Comments Off on Spizzenergi t-shirts get you noticed · Life, Music

I went to a quiz night tonight, in aid of the Alpha people, which is a strange thing for an atheist to do I suppose, but they are nice people and I do enjoy a quiz.  I was wearing my 25th anniversary Spizzenergi t-shirt – the one that says “1979-2004” on it so it looks […]

Can Dec anally match Ant?

September 1st, 2009 · Comments Off on Can Dec anally match Ant? · Life

A question we have all pondered, but not dared to voice aloud… see the Guardian for an explanation of exactly why and how the Express ended up with such an eye-catching headline.  It turns out there is a perfectly logical explanation – they cocked up!

Not mowing the lawn

August 1st, 2009 · Comments Off on Not mowing the lawn · Life

One thing I will not be doing this weekend (probably) is mowing the lawn.  It really needs it, but the other night I went into the shed to get something and noticed a large lawnmower-shaped space in there.   I came backindoors to tell Jayne that I thought we had been burgled, but it turns out […]

Signriting disaster

Saw this van on the way back from Worthing. Either he really is a eletrician or he should be asking the bloke who paints his van for a hefty discount.
