It may not last too long but who cares!

Oh yeah [Nov. 15th, 2005|04:55 pm]
I've been in Chicago for a while for those who care and neglected to tell. Weather is rubbish of course and all we do it eat and drink.. and work.. Nothing particularly unusual to report. Same as it always is when I'm over here. I got down into the city on Sunday night for a Blackhawks game which I know will interest at least one of you out there. Good result for Chicago and a decent game all round. They have ice based cheerleaders out here and I can tell you its an idea the Belfast Giants could take on board..

Supposed to get some shopping done while I'm here but I hate bloody shopping and so many pubs have really good drink offers! You get a beer for dollar nearly anywhere if you are prepared to travel. :o)

Hectic [Sep. 22nd, 2005|08:43 pm]
Its been a hectic week. I've been in a bloody training course all week which has been mostly useless. I am still not on a plane to Chicago, which is annoying. However I have been mentally preparing for Best Man duties once again, mostly by pretending its not happening. That seems to do the trick. Speech is written and once again I have no chance of memorizing it or appearing spontaneous so it will be read from a work print out. I was rather tempted by the idea of winging it.. but decided against it in the end cause that could go so horribly wrong.. I've gone for moderate sleggage with a few heart warming asides. If only I could put such genius into my book.. it would have been finished years ago..

Had the lads round for another 'Last Night of Freedom' TM, I think there is another one tomorrow night, the night before the wedding. This seems to me to be folly but who am I to argue. Last night there was poker, buckfast and whiskey, playstation and guitars. The very essence of life itself. Roll on Saturday, the first pint after the speech will be liquid heaven.. the fifteen after that, a watery hell..

Sleep [Sep. 17th, 2005|03:18 pm]
This has been a remarkably tiring week. I have felt like I've had the cold all week but the nonsense with sitting in traffic for hours probably hasn't helped. Seemed to fizzle out last night after the rumour mill again predicted an upsurge. They blocked the road round the corner briefly but I didn't even notice. The main problem at the minute is that everyone seems to be cancelling all plans just in case.. which is bloody depressing..

Evacuation isn't good after all.. [Sep. 13th, 2005|10:44 am]
Well yesterday we were evacuated from our lovely Lanyon Place office. We had been watching the police direct traffic and people away from three sides of the building for about half an hour before being told that if we felt we needed to go home and we had flexi we could.. queue stampede.. there was a bomb scare between us and Central Station, so no usual train home for me.. also someone got hit by a train futher up towards Lisburn so the entire line was closed anyway..

Got a lift with my boss and a colleague and joined the obscene traffic in May Street, it took us over an hour to get past the City Hall. Another hour to get to the West Link, but by then it was closed off which was proabably a good thing as I heard from a fella in work today that he was stuck on a bus on the West Link with a gang streaming out of the Village and bricking the traffic, they only got hit once but I think it freaked him out and hes only just moved back up here from the south after 10 years.. oops.. Another 30/40 minutes to the top of the Grosvenor Road and we abandonned the car in favour of the Bee Hive, then the Hunting Lodge. As I was leaving the Hunting Lodge, about 6 wrecked cop jeeps flew past trailing sparks.. apparently they were going mental in Blacks Road..

Everyone must try this.. [Aug. 22nd, 2005|08:44 pm]
The sound bloke at TrySkirmishing put some photos of us up on the web site. Kenny's stag night on the top of the Cave Hill, five hours of trekking up and down some mad terrain with very large full weight guns. Its the same systems the Brits and the Yanks use for training. Everyone should do this. Its bloody brilliant. The views up there are something else as well. The first one is me on the offensive.

bang bang

Some more..Collapse )

Oh dear.. I feel I have to.. [Aug. 10th, 2005|09:10 pm]
List five songs that you are currently 'digging'.
It doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good.
But they must be songs you're really enjoying right now.
Post these instructions in your 'blog' along with your five songs.
Then tag five other 'people' to see what they're listening to.

1. Patron Saint of Medioctrity - A House
2. Fallin' - Teenage Fanclub & De La Soul
3. Rather You Than Me - Tin Pot Operation
4. Stop Being My Woman - Audictions
5. Suffer In Silence - The Frames

But I refuse to pass it on..

Oh yeah [Jul. 19th, 2005|07:44 pm]
Friday will be my last day in work for 2 weeks. I don't think I've had two weeks off in a row since I was a student. Unfortunately I will be decorating the first week. The second week is my birthday, Kenny's stag night and the West Belfast Feile, pity the line up is rubbish this year, well as I continuely say, I'm not playing this year so its bound to be rubbish.
