My OH said to me "The old jokes are always the best, and baby, you're the best!"
Isn't that nice!

I have an o2 phone and have got priority moments. I have used the 50% off odean tickes a few times now. A mate of mine is on the Orange network, and he says he can also get o2 priority moments from Oraneg.
Can someone tell me how that works? I thought it was o2 exclusive

Saw Erasure live last night at Bedgebury Pinetum as part of their total pop tour. Another fantastic show, full of all the tunes you'd expect: A little Respect, Ship of Fools, Love to hate you etc. I was really pleased that they sung Fingers and Thumbs which is one of my all time favourites and hardly ever played. There were lots of oldies like Heavenly action, Push me Shove me and Knocking on your door! And a new song Save Me, which sounded really good!
Supporting them was Sophie Ellis Bextor, singing some great tracks incuding Murder on the Dance floor.
And the weather held. All in all it was a fantastic night

Just got my 14th PS3 platinum. For L.A. Noire. It was such a fantastic game, a deep and involving story with slow and cerebral game play (not the standard jump/shoot/hide/shoot bland gameplay)
I enjoyed the homicide cases! If there were more of those, that would be fun to play. And I recognised some (semi) famous faces in the acting too!
Looking forward to a sequel.... I hope

Things that don't happen in Star Trek:
--The Enterprise runs into a mysterious energy field of a type that it has encountered several times before.
--The Enterprise goes to check up on a remote outpost of scientists, who are all perfectly all right.
--The Enterprise comes across a Garden-of-Eden-like planet called Paradise, where everyone is happy all the time. However, everything is soon revealed to be exactly as it seems.
--The crew of the Enterprise are struck by a strange alien plague, for which the cure is found in the well-stocked sick-bay.
--A power surge on the Bridge is rapidly and correctly diagnosed as a faulty capacitor by the highly-trained and competent engineering staff.
--A power surge on the Bridge is fails to electrocute the user of a computer panel, due to a highly sophisticated 24th century surge protection feature called a 'fuse'.
--The Enterprise ferries an alien VIP from one place to another without serious incident.
--The Enterprise is captured by a vastly superior alien intelligence which does not put them on trial.
--The Enterprise separates as soon as there is any danger.
--The Enterprise is captured by a vastly inferior alien intelligence which they easily pacify by offering it some sweeties.
--The Enterprise is involved in a bizarre time-warp phenomenon, which is in some way unconnected with the 20th century. [note: this one actually happens in First Contact, since that was the 21st century. Also visited was the nineteenth century, when Mark Twain found himself beamed to the Enterprise, and was asked to refrain from smoking.]
--Somebody takes out a shuttle and it doesn't explode or crash.
--A major Starfleet emergency breaks out near the Enterprise, but fortunately some other ships in the area are able to deal with it to everyone's satisfaction.
--The shields on the Enterprise stay up during a battle.
--The Enterprise visits the Klingon Home World on a bright, sunny, day.
--An attempt at undermining the Klingon-Federation alliance is discovered without anyone noting that such an attempt, if successful, "would represent a fundamental shift of power throughout the quadrant."
--A major character spends the entire episode in the Holodeck without a single malfunction trapping him/her there.
--Picard walks up to the replicator and says, "Coke on ice."
--Kirk falls in love with a woman who, unfortunately, can't take the time off from her career. She leaves him in the end.
--Scotty assures the captain that repairs will be possible, but they turn out to be against the laws of physics.
--A well-equipped, large landing party is well-equipped with security officers, and none of them die.
--Mr. Spock is among the victims of a strange alien threat, but because of his Vulcan metabolism, he succumbs more quickly.
--The unique interplay of abilities and personality traits of the command crew make them unable to solve a crisis.
--A minor repair on the lower decks of the ship is repaired by a crew of well-trained junior engineers, instead of a member of the bridge crew, or the chief engineer, or (gasp) W______ C_______r.
--Mr. Worf demonstrates the Klingon Flower Ritual.
--Mr. Data links his brain directly to the ship's computer, reads and sends data, and then routinely breaks the connection without mishap.
--I find out what happened to Mr. Worf's (quite understandable) feelings for Counselor Troi.
--A member of the crew of the original series makes an appearance without maudlin references to and jokes from the original series and the films.

To everyone who left me a birthday message. I have had such a good weekend. Going out for a drink after work on Friday, going to the cinema with a mate yesterday and today with my OH. Its been LEGENDERY!

I had a lesson observation today. I am so glad it went well. I had been worrying about it most of the half term, so I didnt relax much. well, thats one observation out of the way, only two and a bit more to go.

I have found this website that relates exactly to the type of phone calls we have been getting.
It shows that the whole thing is a scam either to get remote access to your computer or to charge you for something.
It links to this fake tech web page.
just watching this guy on the you-tube clip really is amusing. Now I want them to rung again so I can screw with their heads too

I wonder if anyone out in blog land can help me.
I recently bought my OH a new lap top (about 3 months ago), so she can talk to her brother
But over the past few days she has been getting strange phone calls from India. (As if from one of those call centres). And it has been very difficult to understand exactly what they are trying to say.
But they have phoned several times and have started to worry her. They never really say who they are calling from; i spoke to one man today who mentioned something but i didnt catch who. He kept trying to tell me that he wasnt selling something and that it is because he is monitoring the internet and has noticed that the web pages we are looking at (from my oh's new computer) are doing something maybe like being attacked by a virus. And then he started saying something like. "I need yuou to go to your computer and do the following things..."
I told him that there was no way I was going to follow instructions from a stranger on the phone.
Has this happened to anyone? Does anyone know what it could mean?

As if the title didnt say it all...
However, this is supposed to be the shortest term, but i have noticed it is a long time until easter. Is Easter really nearl at the end of April? I can't believe it's so late! There was me thinking that no sooner did I go back than it will be half term, but it is seven weeks away, and then a further 7 weeks till easter holiday. And even Easter is right at the end of the easter holiday. WoW!
But back to this week. Work tomorrow
I wonder if it will snow?

This is a woeful tale of the poor service we have had from Sainsburys.
My OH's brother was in need of a new cooker. Sainsburys had a great deal on- if you buy a cooker they will deliver it, connect it and have the old one taken away (all for a fee of course)
On the 8th of December we (as a christmas present) bought this cooker with the service for him.
On the 18th of december it was delivered (delayed due to bad weather).... however the cooker could not be connected because the electrician was not able to get to work that day due to the bad weather. So my OH's brother had a cooker he couldnt use whilst he couldnt use his old cooker.
But we were promised that it would get connected during the week. However we got a phone call on the 22nd saying "We cant get the van up the roads"
"what do you need a van for?"
"Because we have a cooker to deliver"
"No. The cooker is already there. We just want it connected." They were at the bottom of the road. The electrician could have walked up and connected the cooker that was there, instead he couldnt be arsed and drove away. So he had no Cooker for Christmas!
Annoyed, we booked another time for it to be connected. On the 30th (today).
We even phoned this morning to make sure it was happening. "Oh yes. Its on the books for it to happen today"
Guess what. due to a 'breakdown of communication' it was never on the books for it to happen today, and now he is going to have to wait until monday for it to be connected. So thats all of christmas and new year without a cooker.
This is the worst service we have ever had. And no-one seems to care about the customer.
Who has a number for watchdog?!?!
