After spending a few hours in town, some of which was spent being all Solid Snake like, peering round corners after almost running into someone Missus and I don't want to run into in New Look and then again on our way to Wilkinson's, we went and fetched Sprog from school.

In her bag was a certificate for "special mention in an assembly", the reason for her receiving this (and a sticker from the head teacher), was a model she had made, I assume this was some tissue paper flowers she'd crafted, which were rather good. Anyhow, upon getting home, we took some pictures of her with the certificate. However these didn't turn out as expected.

As far as I'm aware, our house isn't haunted, nor has anyone managed to sneak up behind her on that last pic.

EPIC FIGHT: Monkey V Robot

Plenty of fish in the sea?

You all know the phrase "There's plenty more fish in the sea" right? You know the one, someone always says it when you've had a break-up. Well here's a twist on things that you might not expect:

SergioThree: there's other fish in the sea, man, she's just a girl
Beatsfromkorea: no dude, that's bullshit.
Beatsfromkorea: Think of it this way. if your precious copy of street fighter third strike broke and i told you "it's ok man, there's other games in the sea. here, play mortal kombat instead" what would you say? you'd be like, "fuck that, gimme third strike."
SergioThree: ...
SergioThree: you just reached me on a level that i never thought possible

Good eh?

What a comeback!

I'll admit it, I'm a fair weather Football Manager addict, I'll play it and play it for about a fortnight, then I'll stop, then I'll go back maybe five or six weeks later.

Anyhow I recently went back to it, I remembered having a save file where I was the manager of Swansea City, I'd just got them relegated from League 1 (This is Football Manager 2007) but had somehow kept my job. I've had an amazing start to the season, but nothing so far (I'm currently at the start of December 07) has topped earning a replay against Blackpool in the second round of the FA Cup, these guys are in League 1, and admittedly, they're struggling there, but at 2-0 down before the match has hit the hour mark I wasn't expecting this:

Considering Kandol is one of two first choice strikers, and Trundell is my other and also injured, and also that Lester hasn't been as successful as I hoped he would, that really is a fantastic result for "my boys". Every League game, I enter it expecting something, and am disappointed with a draw, however, I have never done well in cups on any FM game, so to be pulling off results against teams that are odds on to beat me is an absolutely fantastic feeling.

Desktop update

I'll try and do this everytime I change the background on my Desktop. OK so its not majorly interesting, but I usually try and find something cool or whatever whenever I do change it.

As you can see, its kind of zombie related. I'm not one of those who are absolutely mad on all things zombies, but I do enjoy a good zombie flick and quite liked the Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks. With this in mind, I want to play Left 4 Dead, but considering its only really built for online play, I can't justify its price tag and by the time it comes down in price, the XBox Live community will have moved onto something newer, probably.

I'm sooo good at this blogging malarky!

Yup, after another lengthy break (ha! over a year!) I've remembered this existed and have come back.

So whats happened in the past year?

Stuff thats what. My little girl is now in full time education, and loving it! My missus is a Student Nurse proper, and is mostly loving it! and I'm trying to find a job, with not alot of luck to be honest.

We're in the build up to Christmas, and its feeling rather Christmasey for the first time in a long time, probably because the sprog is properly getting into it this year. She's had her Christmas party, play and fayre at school, she's visited Santa and we've been trying to hide all the presents around the house with, so far at least, quite a bit of success. The closest call so far has been a parcel arriving from my Dad at the weekend, she saw the big box, asked what it was and settled for the answer "nothing for you" and carried on doing whatever it was she was doing at the time.

We spent Halloween at Gulliver's Kingdom in Milton Keynes with my Dad, Step Mum, older Sister, her bloke and my two nieces, and despite the appauling weather, a good time was had by all.
