Okay well again lots has been happening and I’ve been too busy having a life to document it 😉

The end of last week I was asked to go to the US with work and I flew on Sunday. So here I am in hot and humid Dulles Virginia learning more than anyone would ever want to about registers, widgets and debugging.

I’ve also managed to fit in a quick shopping trip to Tysons Corner where I purchased a sparkly new iPod (yes I know I had an iPod already but it was last seasons darling). The staff had bright orange shirts on with the Apple logo and the word ‘CAMP’ underneath. Now either ‘camp’ has a different meaning in the US like ‘pants’ or …

Prior to that I’ve been looking at flats in Balham and Tooting. Yes I already have one of those too but it’s in Streatham 😉

1. How many times have you truly been in love?


2. What was/is so great about the person you love(d) the most?

I have no idea what it was at all but…

3. What qualities should a significant other have?


4. Have you ever broken someone’s heart?

Yeah I think so 🙁

5. If there was one thing you could teach people about love, what would it be?

I’m not qualified to teach that subject I’m afraid.

Some fuckers decided that not content with what they had in the world they would go and steal something of mine. So they broke into my car, breaking the door in the process so it no longer clses flush. They also broke the steering column in an inept attempt to steal the whole car. I never keep anything of value in the car so basically they have managed to cause a lot of heartache and damage and got nothing. At least they went away empty handed I guess.
I should realy report it to the police but since it is only insured third party I can’t be bothered (no wonder it looks like Labour are winning the war on crime).
the really annoying bit is I hardly ever use the car. I just had it put through an MOT and was about to tax it. In fact I have not driven it since it was at the garage so it was still parked where they left it. So I need to tax it and then get a quote to see how much it will cost to fix – no doubt much more than the value – or how much I will use it.
I am a public transport boy normally – but occasionally, just occaisionally it is really convenient to use a car, going to Liverpool, going to the supermarket etc.
