That Monday feeling...

Here we all are, suffering through a busy Monday and recovering from our weekend.

The photographs from Marks wedding have surfaced, no doubt one will feature in the caption competition at some point. John (editor of Music Mart) is suffering from a lack of sleep, but that is the price of being a new dad. Michelle is suffering with soggy floors in her restored classic Mini and I'm trying to figure out what to get friends for Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas the tree in the centre of Birmingham is a bit of a lazy effort, Santa's grotto is gradually being built and a rather imposing helter skelter has appeared too! Isn't the festive period great!?

It's Grim Outside

Why do we have such grim winters here? I wouldn't mind if it was freezing cold but do we have to have this dull, grey stuff? Annoying.

Mind you, at least it makes Simon's shirts look brighter!

Mark, for all his big talk, lost again.

The fool.


Favourite Tunes To Work To


Well, here I was, working away and I felt some time out was required. Time to post on our blog.

I'm listening away to much music while I'm hard at it (work) and it got me thinking - which is the best type of music to listen to whilst working?

For me, it's Lemon Jelly every time. I'm defo at my most productive if that's on in the background. Worst music to have on in background? Radio One. It. Is. Dross.

Oh, and in other news, I BEAT SIMON AT PRO EVO! Let the world rejoice! I'm a confidence player you see - if anyone out there fancies a go though, I'm ready! - and my confidence was knocked badly the other week. Not today though. Simon was visibly shaking as I played him. I worried him, I just know it.

Come to think of it, maybe he was just chilly...

Yeah, that was it. The window next to him was open.

Ah well.

This weekend, I'll be mostly playing on Star Wars Battlefront 2 with my brother. WOO HOO!

Til next week.

That Thursday Feeling...

Here we are again, it's Thursday, the latest issue has gone on sale... I've updated the website and the gang have just been huddled round the microphone doing the very latest podcast. Sadly we haven't had a single jingle sent in to us... We may have to make Mark sing soon... Be afraid (it could be worse, it could be ME singing)...

On the plus side, I am off out for a meal tonight (which is nice). And have a weekend of mayhem in World of Warcraft ahead of me (does the fun never end in Micro Mart towers?).

Of course Christmas is rapidly approaching, the adverts have started on TV and the nightmare of what to buy people is beginning... Just treat me to a lot of gadgets should you get the urge!

Oh and congratulations to John Moore, editor of our Music Mart magazine, he is now a proud father. Mum and baby daughter are doing well too!


Let Battle Commence

My online name? Er, Brumgrunt.

The game? Pro Evo 5.

The format? PC.

Any fancy a go? Mark is just too easy to beat....

Tee Hee Hee

It's about time I poked my nose in here... *Duly pokes nose in*

So, what's been going on today then?

Well, it's been raining, we've done another Podcast - which Mark is desperately trying to claw down from half an hour of rambling to something more respectable - and Dean and I have just had a ten minute chat about Transformers, but I won't go into that.

Phil's been full of the joys of 'Rome' after having watched it last night and Mark's been stressing slightly over the monitor stand he's looking at for Jo. It looks like an instrument of torture to me.

All that aside though, I find myself wondering why there's a piece of red tinsel still stuck on the ceiling from last year. Make that three pieces of red tinsel.

Anyway, that's enough rambling from me. I do enough of it in TFTT. ^.^
