I need to get a cuppa and sit down! :)


Blimey! Who was that through?

Virgin. We already get our phone through them. I was going to get 20Mb broadband but that would have been £39 so we wouldn't have saved anything technically. I'm sure Lee would have loved it, especially when it goes up to 50Mb in the next few months ... but we've been managing on 2Mb all this time so that will do for now. :)

I hope that works out for you, but I won't be holding my breath. I haven't yet met a Virgin Media customer that's had a good word to say about them.

On a happier note, I'm loving the weak dollar at the moment. I've just installed a new ignition, coil and distributor on my race car (which has made an impressive difference to the way it runs). And because of the exchange rate, it was all at a bargain price, too!

Thats a good deal lisa......if you like your connection to go down every half an hour seriously im with Virgin and it's annoying especially playing online games having to reconnect because my ip's gone down. I wanna change my internet provider but unfortunayely my mum n dad wont allow it because they have the TV, Phone, Internet Combo.

Well we have no problems with our cable now. AOL use Virgin's cable to provide us with broadband at the mo and we have no probs with AOL at all. The reason for the change is that we could use the extra speed and of course it'll save us some cash. I have heard negative reports about Virgin tbh but it's our best alternative to AOL who are fleecing us currently as we pay £27.49 for a service they now charge £4.99 a month for. :|

Went to a metal wedding on saturday- was great fun. The first song involved alot of moshing- ha ha.

Local rock club did the djing and we got freen entery into the club afterwards.

Great when st the wedding Ironmaiden came on and was just me and 3 guys moshing on the dance floor.
Managed to get into a 3 hour conversation about Ironmaiden and our opinions on metal with the photographer. (was really cute too, shame he is 38)

Managed to pitch my idea to the rock club owner about being the venue for the guitar hero event- he is very interested so hopefully I can sort some things out.
Fingers crossed.

Exhausted now though as I have been out every night last week and now broke as a result but expected to go to london next weekend- ahhhhhhh need money.

Gym after work too- getting fit again.

just wish I was not stuck in work :(

After several years of absence, Hockenheim has just been confirmed as a full round of this year's FIA Drag Racing Championship again. Excellent news...

This was yesterday but finding original pressings of Iced Earth's Night of the Stormrider and Burnt Offerings in Camden made me rather happy!
