Discovered today that the staff handbook thing is out of date, and we at New Look don't get double pay on bank holidays any more.

Fuck you New Look.

I am caught at that random point where you aren't sure if you should be feeling guilty about something or not. My head hurts :(

In the last four days my PC has decided it doesn't like paying Mp4s - downloaded codec to fix it.
Then it didn't want to play AVIs - downloaded codec again.
This may or not have caused DEP to shutdown Com surrogate everytime I try to move a video file.
As of today Windows Media Player is crashing any time I play anything other than an MPEG.

Fuck it. I'll watch everything on DIVX and I hope Bill Gates' next shite is a hedgehog.

Change my avatar? What's more manly than a raging squirrel?

Ages back I thought you were a girl with a fuggly earless kitten avatar. Now I just slip "You're a girl" into conversation at sporadic intervals for the controversy because most people believe it anyway ;)


I'm even your facebook friend! And you added me.

Be careful or i'll delete you :evil:

Anyway enough of that 4chan silliness.

What you need dude is VLC media player and CCCP codec pack (May not need the last one, but it's nice to have around) for videos and Winamp for music.

VLC is a horribly bloated piece of software.

Just install CCCP, it includes Media Player Classic which is the best player by far.

I'm having a day when I could genuinely wish I was a lot colder a person than I am. Usually I'm happy being a bit of a softy, but today it's really becoming the bane of my life :x

We've had to take all the lino off the floor in the bathroom because it's all rotten underneath, possibly due to a shite plumbing job when it was done up 10 or so years ago. Makes getting a bath/shower a pain in the arse cos it means I have to lay it all down again and shit. And it stinks under there. Years of rotting, like.

I remember that from my old kitchen. Cheapass landlord made me take it all off as well!

WPMOT - its 12.5 degrees in this house - it really feels like i'm living in a fridge. If this was a workplace, i'd have been sent home by now :(

Today was totally dead. There was really no reason for me to be there. One day Smiths will refuse to open, and millions of old people and retards (one of our core demographics, it seems) will shrivel and die without their daily paper.
