stupid star alliance

Check In 3 hours before my arse we waited since like 3.30 and no one came to check us in until an hour and fourty minutes before the flight was due to leave, and can I just say for the record that terminal 2 is pants.
Then of course I had to contend with the people on the plane to Vienna. Gah.
Whilst we were being given breakfast the couple behind me start asking the steward if they serve wine with breakfast. He looked dumbfounded naturally. He politely said no but he would go find them some if they wished. They did.
I mean it was like 7am or something and they wanted to start drinking. What’s with that?


Is the magic number…
No more no less. Well actually that is the number of text messages stored on my phone. They date back to last year when I first got it. As I forget to erase them after replying. So it is taking me about 20 seconds to open the inbox now. Time for a spring clean methinks!
I was tempted to copy some of here. You know as some of them are really weird out of context. To be onest though I need some sleep and to walk Jack and then only one more day of work…


Weird to think how some acronyms just become accepted. HMV, BT, DSL, AOL etc…
Weirder still to think that some people never knew what the acronym stood for in the first place.
Chris and his friends have had a debate about HMV and had decided it must stand for ‘Her Majesty’s Vinyl’. I nearly choked!

24 CTU ringtone

Geeky I know but the ring tone for the phones at CTU is quite unique. has it posted in Nokia composer format – I just need someone to send it on to my phone now since I don’t have composer 😉

Credit Card Fraud

Is anyone else concerned that credit card companies have simply kept quiet about millions of card numbers being hacked

Sweet as Nectar?

See I always said that I’d prefer one loyalty card for all shops. Unfortunately that defeats the object of a loyalty card! Vodafone meanwhile has jumped on the Nectar band waggon. Which I guess means Orange won’t 😉

Two more sleeps :o)

Watched 24 part two last night. I’d taped it from BBC3 on Sunday night as I was not going to stay up late after watching the first episode on BBC2. It was excellent – easliy as good as the first series (and that’s unusual for a second series I find).
I packed last night too – lots of sun cream as I checked the weather reports for Sydney and it looks like it will be sunny and 25 degrees the entire time I am down under 🙂
I’m very excited now. I need to get some Cadbury’s Dairy Milk for friends and some Heinz Tomato Soup for some weird reason.
So I leave early (and I do mean early) on Thursday morning and arrive Friday evening – I’m hoping the flight is not too bad.
I’m leaving the flat in the capable hands of the invisible flatmate. I told him to have a party whilst I was gone but he isn’t that kind of boy!
So only two more sleeps!

Did I mention I was going to Sydney for 3 weeks?
