The fucking annoying chef at work was nagging me all day about my blunt knives. I spent at least 15 minutes sharpening all of them as I was fed up of it. Later that evening he picks up my knife of the bench, naturally expecting it to be blunt as shit, and slices it through his finger. Cue him throwing the knife and the air and screaming "FUCK! THAT'S SHARP!...you've been practicing"

Totally smug after that.

Come back from a somewhat nicer xmas than usual in Edinburgh, though on the way out it was a bit of a lol because I got a text at like 03.28 (2 mins before me and Jamie were gonna get up anyway) saying "sorry your flight's cancelled, you can either get a refund or a free transfer" so I panicked and after Jamie's suggestion went for Newcastle.

Fucking scary bumpy flight because of the wind but when I arrived at Newcastle it was just like, walk coupla hundred yards to the corridor that leads you to the Metro, which calls directly at Central. Hop on a CrossCountry train and I'm there.

Also delayed by nearly 2 hours coming back and then fannying about with the late airport bus. But whatever, I've just polished off a packet of biltong and all's good.

I entered my first ever Go tournament today, and won all three of my games. More tomorrow.

Went down to Wiltshire/Somerset to see my family this weekend. It's nice to touch base with them.

New phone in the post. Now I can use the internet out and about again, check texts without it freezing, turn it off/on and not constantly worry about it losing power because it doesn't turn on autmatically when charging.

And given plug sockets at work are right by my desk I don't need to charge overnight all night thus killing the battery in the end. I might buy a spare charger and leave it at work where I can charge it to 100% and unplug it immediately.

Still undefeated. This seems to be going quite well so far!

Also I have given up one of my jobs...

I decided that the extra time invested was not worth the money during these 'good ' years and that I could spend the time better getting CV up to date and getting a better job.

A friend just invited me out and I could actually say 'Yeah, what time?'

Feel like a huge weight has been lifted :)

Managed to find "Dead Sushi" in HMV.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!
