Sun, 11 Feb 2007 20:57:47 GMTJust watching Top Gear, and they got pelted with rocks and had a load of rednecks with dawgs and shotguns chase them just cos they had slogans painted on their cars that might be controversial in that part of the world.

Thu, 26 Oct 2006 06:04:52 GMTI must say I do enjoy all-nighters. No phone calls, no distractions. Just hours and lovely hours to get stuff done.
Thu, 12 Oct 2006 12:40:18 GMTI can honestly say that right now, things are pretty damn good.I think I am the least stressed I have ever been. I put this down to my change in 'career'. Or rather, the fact that I don't have to worry about annoyances like careers anymore. I am master of my own destiny (customers willing...!).As per my previous post my working hours now suit me perfectly, enabling my body to fall into its natural rhythm. I am working more hours than I ever did at Ford, although less than when it was Ford + GF combined - thankfully, as any more of that would have killed me - and I am loving every minute of it.Outside of work (there is an outside?!) things are great too - I am very much looking forward to moving to Kent (although I seem to have almost done so already - oops!), things are going amazingly well with Lacey and I am for the first time in many years being myself, enjoying life and sticking two fingers up to a society which would pigeon-hole people into certain behavioural patterns/descriptions.I have also, without meaning to, gone on a bit of 'self-discovery'. Don't worry dear reader I will not get all 'new age' on you! I have discovered and reconciled and accepted the following:I am not a team player. Never have been, never will be. No point trying to pretend otherwise or attempt to be so. Probably due to being an only child. I have always relied on myself and my abilities. If I have an interest in something, *I* want to do it because I want all the fun. If I don't have much of an interest in something, then fine, someone else can do it.I am effectively unmanageable. Again probably the belligerant only-child thing. I get crotchety and grumpy when given tasks and checked up on and told what to do. I am not work-shy by any means, but it has to be on my terms and for reasons that I can see and subscribe to. The contradiction to this is if I am asked to do a task which I find very interesting, I will try to do it as well as possible in an almost sycophantic desire to please. Strange that - don't know why. Probably showing off.I have a deep desire to contribute to the economy. I have a strong urge to provide services to other businesses to help them do business and get us revenue into the bargain. I love seeking out new business opportunities as it gives me a real buzz to win a new contract.I have simple tastes. One of the reasons I am so calm and unstressed is that I do not really want for anything right now. Yes I am looking to move to a bigger house. Yes I would like a shiny new car. But everything else I want, I have - material or otherwise. Actually on the material front I am trying to offload as much as possible. I keep joking that when I move I will only be taking my DVDs, CDs, PCs, sofa, and bed - but this is actually not far from the truth and you know what, I like the idea. What else do I need? All the real richness in life is provided by the company of my loved ones.I do not operate effectively on a standard 0900-1700 day. I generally work about 10 hours a day during the week but it is spread between about 1100 and 0100.I'm sure I was originally planning to write more than this.One consequence of all the above is that if, for whatever reason, the worst was to happen with the business (thankfully I do not think this likely) and I were to find myself on the job market again and having to think about the whole 'career' rubbish once more, going up against people who actually give a damn about such stuff (please tell me - why?) I am, frankly, screwed.Ah well.[...]
Thu, 12 Oct 2006 12:20:59 GMTI've been thinking lately. I wonder how much productivity is lost in the UK economy due to people working outside of their most alert hours.
Tue, 10 Oct 2006 09:58:43 GMTAfter about 12 hours sleep interrupted only by an awakening in the dead of night and another when my phone decided to cock-a-doodle-doo at me at 8:30 (swiftly followed by being flung across the room), I feel much better.

Tue, 26 Sep 2006 14:49:33 GMTDue to keeping somewhat nocturnal working hours at the moment, I am able to feed my sharks (ok, ok, goldfish and koi) during the light of day.
Sun, 24 Sep 2006 20:18:11 GMTWell, what an amazing day yesterday. (image) sven_garner and his lovely lady Sarah tied the knot. A thousand congratulations to the happy couple! Poor muggins here was best man, a job which I actually thoroughly enjoyed on the day, even including giving my speech ;o)
