I'm another one that could do with a new laptop. Not a priority yet though and I'm only after one for general use rather than gaming and films.

Yeah what the fuck is that about? That just seems like a waste of time and a complete hassle.

Off 7 more like. Microsoft really don't want a repeat of XP.

Plus it made the headlines. Good publicity and all that.

Plumber seems to think that it will cost about £450 to fix the leak in the shower. Sadly that's the best quote I have had :o

How fucking difficult is it to say my name?! No matter how many times I correct this woman at work she can't, or won't, pronounce it right. My name is not Anna for fucks sake.

That's the easiness of fuck all accent and a three letter name. It's near impossible to get Joe wrong.

There's a couple of people at work who cannot get my name right. No, it's not "Lisbeth" or "Beth", it's Elisabeth or Lis ffs.

I get called Anna quite frequently and some people are convinced my name is Helen because of the author though that hasn't happened for a while.

Actually, that's another annoying thing. People who ask my name, I tell them Jamie and they call me James.

The rules with me seem to go family call me Matt, girlfriends call me Matthew and friends call me Matty with a soft t or "mawddy" depending on thickness of their accent. Or "Matteeeee" in the case on Ania.
