Guy I've got on facebook has been posting for months about "THE BIG MOVE TO MAGALUF"

He's been there 5 days, got wasted, not found a job, and is now coming home again.

Was used as the Channel 4 theme before that movie even came out from what I heard :P


Because it was originally a library piece, not one commissioned especially for Channel 4 News, it has turned up in some unexpected places.

Girl on FB posted a link to 9gag or one of those sites saying "OMG My Cosplay for Comicon was so good somebody made a meme of me! I'm internet famous!" Pointed out to her that it was on her account and that she clearly made it herself. Comment was swiftly deleted, I was blocked and got a message telling me to stop ruining her "moment of fame". People are fucking metnal. :lol: :lol:

Just got a call from a recruitment agency in Gloucester. I haven't been in contact with any agencies in Gloucester for about a year. How shit is this job that they are diggin out CVs as old as mine!

I had contact from a recruiter a couple of years ago because my CV contained references to some niche software that I used to work with. The fact that it had been over 15 years since I last touched it was irrelevant. Mine was the only CV on their database that had *any* experience with it.

Same, I get automated emails looking for Cognos devs, even though I mentioned it once on my CV about 11 years ago.

My mate left his speed metal mix tape in my boombox. I may or may not have taped over every second song with Alone by Heart.

Was supposed to be getting a tattoo yesterday of a broken bone on my left leg. Had to cancel because I really badly sprained my left ankle :lol:

Authorities say a man living in a suburban Philadelphia assisted-living facility has lost his housing subsidy after officials found a prostitute underneath his bed.

Uri Monson tells The Intelligencer in Doylestown (http://bit.ly/1cpH33U) the man, believed to be in his 70s, paid prostitutes using profits earned from peddling alcohol to fellow residents.

Monson says the man was a "more mobile gentleman" who went on booze runs for his neighbors.

The incident was reported Thursday after county commissioners authorized contract extensions with private facilities housing former residents of the closed county-owned assisted living facility
