New arrival

After what seemed like forever P & C have had their firstborn son, George. Congratulations to them both and, as I was told on the phone, Sheffield will need to lock up its daughters.

Since I now have a camera again I've started updating my photoblog. You can access it from the sidebar on top of the links.

Only 80 cups a day more

According to Death by Caffeine, it would take 83.98 cups of brewed coffee to kill me. I think my little stomach would explode before the caffiene did anything.

No vroom today. Vroom tomorrow.

Despite trying to keep it secret I couldn't help myself so I may as well come clean here - I've failed yet another driving test. I'm starting to think that it's a sign that I shouldn't be allowed behind the wheel of a very large killing machine, but I can't admit defeat, can I?

On the plus side, I managed to take it in my own car this saving myself 50 for the use of an instructor's. Yes, driving lessons are that price these days. The next one is booked and thanks to the kindness of Caity and others I should get enough practice in to pass.

If I don't I'm changing my name to Maureen.

Widgeting Away

Are you may have noticed on my sidebar, I've added an MSN status icon so you can see when I'm online. By clicking on it you can message me and say hello even if you don't use MSN itself.

This service has been provided by Web2Messenger which is invite only at the moment. If you want an invite then please leave a comment with your .net passport address and I'll send one on to you.

[Thanks to Ben for the invite.]

Stick a pin in me

If any of you have five seconds to spare please sign my map so I can see if anyone actually reads this drivel.

Drink Responsibly

Not quite as successful as Supersize Me, this documentary aims to do for the whiskey industry what Morgan Spurlock did for fast food - sweet bugger all.

Funny, even if the experimenter thinks that Jamesons is an American whiskey.

All change here for services North

As you can see I've changed the layout a little bit because Yaccs, the commenting service I used, started defaulting to ads for a casino. Thanks Caity for picking it up.

On the plus side, I look all green and Irish now.

Another Friday Night

It takes only one drink to get me drunk. The trouble is, I can't remember if it's the thirteenth or the fourteenth.

In a strange coincidence, just after I'd posted about my seeming lack of very personal messages (especially when drunk) my cousin Kate found me. Hi to all the American side of the family.
