Just swapped sims again.
Earlier today I went to Old Fashioned World in Dudley.
There I encountered some pit ponies, a tram and a three year old pick pocket. The latter I had to clip round the ear and pin to the back of a horse and cart while I shouted for a peeler. He didn't show up. Apparently he was cleaning himself up after receiving the contents of a chamber pot.
The thing about wireless networks is that when you fiddle with them they're a nightmare to fix.
I've just spent two hours correcting an improvement I was trying to make. It all ended in two hard resets and crossed fingers.
It worked out fine but next time you see me tell me to stop fiddling with stuff that's working just fine.
This is what I can see from my sofa in my studio. I'm currently downloading MediEvil onto my PS3. I'll be downloading G-Police next.
I had both of these games on my PS1 and it's great to get both for under seven pounds from the Playstation store.
This is turning into the best Easter break for a long time.
(Message to Mr DC: Grab a PS3. You'll be glad you did.)
Until now the top of this speaker has been occupied by a cat and mouse noughts and crosses set and my spinning shiny thing. By this time next week it will all be so different.
Sitting in this spot in seven days will be a PS3. I'd love to say that I'll be playing Burnout Paradise but I'll probably be installing a Linux distro. One of the main reasons for choosing the PS3 is that as well as being an ace games console it will also double up as a Linux PC. I've found a distro called Yellow Dog which is very well suited to the Sony machine.
I've also got four whole days to sort everything out because it's Easter weekend next week.
I can't wait.
This was an each way bet on the Cheltenham Gold Cup. One a horse called Afistfullofdollars there was only one way I was going to win and that was to be at the race track and stick a rocket up the horses bum.
I didn't so the horse lost and that's why I don't bet.
It's not every day I have to walk the long way to Browns but today was an exception. While digging foundations workmen found an old WWII bomb.
Just about the whole of Coventry city centre was evacuated while the town planners decided whether the late Adolf Hitler should have a say in the re-design of the Belgrade Plaza.
I believe a decision will be made sometime next year after numerous commitee meetings at which point some bright spark will delay proceedings by losing the National Socialist Party's email.
It's said that bad luck comes in threes and that was certainly the case last night.
1 It took of two and a half hours to get home.
2 The internet was down so no surfing.
3 I unleashed a trojan onto my laptop.
All these things will be sorted out and I'm glad it's a new day today.
I stopped at this place to get some lunch and there was this Dalek arguing with the lady inside.
He was saying something about cans of pop being like Dalek babies and that selling them was wrong.
He then left without buying anything which is a bit rude although he did exterminate a Skoda car.
I thought that was funny.
My Cat and I have just had our lunch here before she goes off to have her whiskers straightened at the physio.
This town is a bit of a strange place. We like the good charity shops and not much else. Our lunch was good too.
