Pump up the volume…

iplayer_logo.pngThe ads are now starting to grate a little (and it doesn’t really work for me due to my lack of broadband – thanks BT!!!), but have noticed that the BBC iPlayer let’s you crank up the volume to 11… Let’s rock! Hello Cleveland etc etc…

Sat a home waiting for BT again…

Currently sat at home waiting for a BT engineer to turn up and sort out my broadband… again. Since getting BT Broadband in October we’ve had loads of problems with it, BT Vision not working, an 8MB line coming in at 104kbps. All this lack of actual service is further compounded by their customer service. A call to phone them up normally results in a 40 minute wait and no real answers and a promise that someone will call you back in 24 hours – to their credit they normally do, but more often than not the call results in “I can’t do that, I’ll have to refer you to X who’ll call back in 24 hours… Grr….

Doomed I tells ya…

It was destined to be a bad day. Got this message on the evening before the match. Ended up playing in goal, got sent off after 10 mins for throwing a ball at someone’s back (in theory this should’ve been a yellow card, but the ref deemed it violent conduct, so it was a red).
The match was abandoned after 44 mins, but that’s another story. As for my red card, well I’ve now got a 35 day ban and at least a £35 fine. Now appealed and it seems like these are both going to be doubled… All because some striker lashed out at our captain and I took the law into my own hands…

Double Yolker!

This is the first thing I ate in 2008 (second thing if you count the chocolate orange that I ate after getting in after NYE). First time I’ve ever had a double yolker, could this be an omen for the New Year? Oo-er…
