Sick: I managed to acquire some nasty bug after a fellow London Tube passenger managed to cough directly into my mouth. Public Transport: what can I say?
Star Trek: ID: I have stocked up on Red Bull and caffeinated Lemsip for tomorrow night’s JJ double-bill IMAX extravaganza that I’m attending with a mate in Crawley, UK. I suppose it doesn’t matter if I nod off a bit for the first movie, but I’m sure I’ll be wide awake for the second. I have dug out my big, nerdy Avengers Assemble 3D specs for the occasion. That should nicely disguise the big, nerdy glasses I wear every day.
Guy Hair: I finally attacked my greying thinning mane, Satan Claws beard and other diverse and disgusting guy-hair (I’m not even going there) with various cutting tools that included, I believe, a McCulloch and I’m now passing vaguely for one of you puny humans. I’ve given up for the moment, on my evil-Spock goatee, until I find a hair dye that doesn’t attempt to eat my face. I also lopped off my head-hair, but I’m not sure that I have done the right thing as I have a wonderfully, villainous Vetenari(sh) widow’s peak. Oh well, shouldn’t take long to grow out.
Journalism: Sick of not finding a job, I’ve decided to start my NCTJ training by distance-learning. I’m also applying for NUJ membership so I can get a freelancer’s press-pass. Yes, I’m looking, so if you have a job… Oh and by the way, before you attempt to offer me an appalling rate- I have now found the London Freelancers’ rate comparison page.
iBoneHead: My iPhone properly crashed today after I received an aborted phone call. Don’t know why! Hard reboot fixed it.
WordPress Keyboard Map: If you find your keyboard not working properly in WordPress or any web form/app, e.g. the @ and ” symbols getting swapped or the # symbol disappearing, check out the language bar. Some apps can swap your keyboard map! How stupid is that?
Cook, Ives, Baker, Mullenweg, Ballmerrrrrrrrr!!!
