i'm so bad at keeping this journal lately. Things aren't happening to me much, just around me. Thursady before last, we had a tornado. It's not sometihng we have in this part of the world, in fact it was one of the strongest EVER measured in UK! It happened in Kings Heath, a favourite mooching area of mine, me and the bloke almost went there on the day, something told us not to. a few years ago, a car bomb failed to blow up 5 minutes walk from where i was in the City Centre. Then there was the dirty great earthquake 5 miles away, I was about 18 miles from the epicentre, it bloody well shook us up at 1 o clock AM. Got bacl to my place, a few things had fallen off the shelves. Have I got the luck of the Irish? Ta mum. I've not been well lately. Was down all of last week. Left me knackered, but I'm getting perkier. It's a good job, CD reviews don't write themselves. I'm transferring Astronauts at present, it's taking me a while though. Just testing out which bits of software i can enploy to tart episodes up before commiting 'em to disc, Wish i could afford pinnacle 9. Quite proud of the menu though. While I was poorly, my DVD player died. Imaginine moping about and not being able to watch The Goodies or Michael Bentines Potty Time to cheer up. Had BBC7 though, some comfort. Note to oneself: Keep journal more often.
