Thanks for the comments, fellas!  I always enjoy hearing comparisons, because I can point to loads of bands no one's heard of hahah but it's always cool to see what well-known bands people think it sounds like  afro

Just had a listen, Rev. Got a Slipknot thing going on there me thinks. afro

Bought a couple of books today, it was a buy one get one half price thing. So I thought I'll pay for the £6.99 and get the £14.99 one for half price...the shop thought different though. Ho hum, robbed again. afro

Went out on an organised shoot today. All I had with me was my usual cartridges for shooting clay pigeons, and I couldn't hit a damn thing. Pheasant after pheasant fluttered by me, I blasted away twenty cartridges, and hit nothing at all. It was as if I was firing cartridges filled with confetti, or blanks. Utterly hopeless. I thought it was only a morning's shooting, so I had only taken the one belt of ammo, which meant I had to scrounge a few cartridges from the other guys. Lo and behold, on the next drive, using the new cartridges, I shoot three straight off. I'm still not sure whether it was the ammo or my crapness with the shotgun that made me miss all morning, but it felt good to finally hit something.

I'm absolutely knackered now, though -- I reckon I've walked ten miles or more, up hill, down valley, up steeper hill, down valley. I was practically coughing up blood. Must get down the gym scratch

The first lot of pheasants were probably wearing the Kevlar flak jackets I've invented for "game" birds. Watch out for the next lot, they might have the air-to-ground missiles I've been working on.  Wink

Heh, I said the same sort of thing to the farmer --  these birds had black ops training, or something. Veterans of the field afro

I start my new job in the morning. Already I have more meetings scheduled for next week than i normally attend in a month.  rolleyes  This new position is going to entail going to a LOT more meetings. People have been asking me if I'm "excited" about changing jobs. I keep saying that "excited" isn't the word I would have used. I'm looking forward to it of course, but there's a certain amount of apprehension involved in moving to something new after having been in QA for so many years. Then my new boss asked me if I was excited about coming into the new position, and I said, "Yeah!"  grin

Good luck, Pharo! I'm sure you have little reason for apprehension-- on your end at least!  afro

See, I'd have said, "Nah, but I'm looking forward to the pay rise." afro Honesty's always the best policy and all that.

Good luck tomorrow, Pharo. It's always a bit nerve-wracking going from one job to another, but I'm sure you'll be up to speed and liking the change in no time at all. smiley

I'm back to work tomorrow. I feel a bit sad about going back to the daily grind. I think I feel more prepared for it now I've had a proper long break and time to wind down. Friday was the first day I started to feel a bit bored around the house, which is a good sign it's time to go back to work. I've got a very busy few weeks ahead of me now. Crazy amount of work to do. Can't complain, though. smiley

Went to a cool housewarming party (arf arf!) last night, had tremendous fun!  Reminded myself that I utterly despise tequila, yuk!  Angry I forgot to mention, my friend and I went to view a flat (well, maisonette) on Thursday.  It was basically perfect so we went straight to the estate agents and put a credit check through.  Now we've got our fingers crossed it all goes to plan!  The only thing that's worrying me is I have to get housing benefit to cover my rent (since my hours at the gallery are haphazard) and I won't know how much I'll get for the new flat until I've moved in (the council can't work it out beforehand, because that would be far too easy  bleh )... rolleyes

I'm not a fan either, but I do like that a shot of good tequila followed by the sucking of a wedge of lemon is pretty damn smooth.  Thing is, I can't afford good tequila, and when I drink, I drink too much to bother with expensive booze anyhow.

Oh, well, if tequila reminds you of someone retching, I can see the dislike.

I don't do the whole salt part of tequila shooters.     Nor limes.  I prefer lemons...or maybe it's because I have a lemon tree in my front yard.

I recall some comedian said that "tequila" is the other word that is recognized in every language.  He said you could go to China, Germany, or where ever, say "tequila" and watch as evryone just shook their heads and grumbled in pain...I don't like the stuff nyself---prefer the cheap beer (go Beast  cheers  )
