>I had 2 really rubbish days this week, and while I planned a few things for yesterday, I did sleep in late and when I was working my internet fell over and my laptop completely died. I’ve had a budget for a new laptop since Christmas and I’ve been moving it forward, not touching it, and moving it forward again a month at a time. So I decided to just go for it in the end, and with favourite techie at the end of the phone, I bought a brand new 15.6″ dual core 3Gb Advent laptop. I still couldn’t get the internet to work for ages, and had 2 very long phone conversations with support while they got me connected.
At about 6:30pm I got a call from the gig buddy asking if I’d ride shotgun with her to drop something off with a mate at about 9pm halfway (between us and them) along the A1M. I’d already had a KFC for tea and was just about fed up of all things IT, so I went with her for a break and a change, and got back at about 11pm. I’m writing this close to midnight to post in the morning because I may not have time tomorrow, and as my internet has already fallen over several times it may not be working again.
At least I have a shiny new pc, though – and Windows 7 was MY idea …
So, Friday morning the plan is to work from home so no work emails upset my workload for the day. I brought the magazine home with me on Wednesday in case I got around to looking at it on Thursday. I didn’t, but I know I’ll get a lot more done if I do it at home, then I’ll head to the office for 1pm.
I plan on doing absolutely nothing for the next 3 days unless I really, really feel like it – or get an offer I can’t refuse.
Eye candy time, the last for now – here’s a bit of a surprise. Santiago Cabrera played Isaac Mendez in the first series of Heroes, and I always said he was the dead spit of one of my characters. So here’s one of my favourite pictures of him:
I found Santiago here (mylot.com).
And I said I’d find one, but Heather Locklear, pre-Tommy Lee (whaddya got against Tommy?), without big hair but in colour, was a bit of a challenge. I think I did it. Another one for Nidge:
I found Heather here (sitcomsonline.com).
Have a great weekend. I might see you on the other side …
