Ahhhh, writer’s block…

There is absolutely nothing worse than giving up while writing, mid-way through a sentence. Well, there is worse things, when you think about it- the mass genocides during World War II, the fact that William Regal has never held a major championship, when a pizza place puts slightly more pepper than you can tolerate (yeah, you asked for jalapenos, big man- now you’ve got to suffer them!)

I’m feeling especially miserable today. I was yesterday, too, but I wanted to make a blog post at some point- mainly because if nothing else, it’s something to do. The problem here is the fact that a) I don’t want to bore you with whatever stupid ideas/thoughts I’ve got swimming about, a b) I don’t want to waste internet space whining. I do that enough without going out of my way to do it. Continue reading

Blue Monday. Apparently.

According to some journalists with nothing else to write about, today is apparently called Blue Monday, and is the single most depressing day of the calender year, according to a random equation that manages to make no sense whatsoever. I’m going to write it all off as rubbish- mainly because instead of a single, 24-hour day, I’ve had a fairly bleak few days, that don’t seem to be ending anytime soon. Continue reading

2013. It can jog on.

As I’m writing this, I’m in bed. I’ve either come down with a bad case of food poisoning or that norovirus that seems to be sweeping across everyone- although with my near-non-existent digestion and fairly weak immune systems, I can’t rule out anything really. All I’ll say is that throwing up several times at work is not good record shop etiquette. You never saw John Cusack blowing chunks in High Fidelity, did you?

People are rubbish- Gahhhh! part two

Sorry- I’ve been neglecting this blog somewhat. I can explain though- I’ve been working quite a bit, and I’ve been spending a lot of my downtime writing the script for “If All Else Fails, End With Jazz Hands”- which has got a decent bit of progress now- roughly a quarter done, if not more. But still, what a couple of days I’ve had. Ugh. ‘Tis the season and all that, which means that suddenly, (what may at one point have been) normal people get the urge to act like idiots within the retail environment. Continue reading

People are rubbish- Gahhhh!

I don’t know why, but just as certain seasons (in the retail world- remember, it’s not Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter- it’s Valentine’s Day/Easter, Holidays/Back To School, Halloween/Thanksgiving and Christmas) brings out the idiocy in consumers, crap weather brings out the arseholitude (it that a word? It looks and sounds right…) in motorists. Continue reading

It’s That Time Of Year Again…

My parents came over to visit me earlier this week. Usually if they both have got a day off work at the same time (dad works Monday to Friday, mum works shifts which can be at any time), they sometimes come over for the day. It’s nice- generally we’ll go out somewhere for the day, unless the weather’s a bit rubbish. Continue reading
