@GuyAdamsAuthor bollocks. I’m sure I said something more complimentary to you in 2003. Next week? Yeah maybe. It’s cheaper than your books.@GuyAdamsAuthor I’m so very glad…@GuyAdamsAuthor read it. Forgot how good 2000AD was. Will have to get it regularly again. Remember when it was Still Only 50p?Bof. Too many things to do before I go to work. too many things to do before it all closes for two weeks.I'd forgotten what a mess pinterest is.

Some fucker called @GuyAdamsAuthor has infected my copy of 2000AD not once but twice! Man alive … whatever next.Sometimes working here has benefits. Like being able to use all the equipment after work to make things. No chance of owning half this stuffIf yesterday taught me anything, it was I am happiest when making something. I've got to do this full time for sake of my sanity.

Gin on a school night. Not to be recommended, but it seemed like such a good idea at the time.

Probably going to go to the city centre tomorrow and shop with the fleshy 3d people. Once a year is acceptable.I love bikes. I like the way they look. I love that it’s free transport. I just wish they had a motor, and cup holders, and could carry 8x4.I can’t stop listening to Lazaretto. Must have been in at least 15 times today. #freelancejukebox

Needless to say there's no mention of a returns number on the @EuroCarParts invoice. The number is for 'feedback'. Should have gone to GSFSo I wait in line @EuroCarParts for 20 mins then told I have phone to get a return number. Back at the arse end of the line now.Just what is it that the counter guy does at eurocarparts? They vanish for hours and come back with a single nut, of the wrong size.

I have a tooth that feels too big. This is usually expensive. #nhsdentists #whatnhsdentistsLooks like if you want to break Airmail.app, you need to pay £6.99 and get the new one.

Googles new material design seriously makes me think about jumping ship, but I am too tied into apple. No iMessage or FaceTime. Can't do it.I hate eBay liars that call a 1.8ghz dual core a 3.6ghz machine. It doesn't work like that, and you f*^%ing well know it."Systemd... it makes people go "weeee, my system booted in 5 sec!!!" and it makes developers go "f**k it broke this this this and this...Should have left for work by now.
