I'm going to that on Thursday - never been before so looking forward to it.

Although my friend thinks ISIS is going to blow us all up at the NEC.

Least you will go out full of food, it's good (been about 4 times) and plenty of free samples of food and booze going around there. Less busy in the week too which is a bonus.

Rocked
  • The old dead PC lives again, it was a dead power supply and I found an old one from another dead rig (only 300W though).

Sucked

  • Yet to get it to boot to Windows however so something else is wrong also, will continue to investigate tomorrow. Determined to revive it and get it running again.

  • Managed to get PC hooked up to Jacks TV and pretty much everything works well.
  • Got Red Alert 2/Yuris Revenge working on the new PC too so means that Jack & I should be able to play LAN.
  • Christmas shopping has pretty much been finished and most are wrapped already.
  • Shall have some spare cash again starting next month after tax recalculation.
  • Steam sales are looking good so far.
Sucked
  • Only thing that doesnt work currently is the sound to the TV, need to get a VGA to HDMI cable or see if I can get audio cable working properly.
  • Didnt manage to get old rig running well, something went wrong with Windows Installation and spent entire day trying to switch out HDD's and reinstall to no avail so gave up on that one and refurbished another.
  • Going to rain for the whole week and I hate rain.
  • Had no time to game at all besides a quick game on Battle for Middle Earth II.

Rocked:
  • Good Food Show was amazeballs - got completely and unintentionally hammered during my tour of the alcohol section and genuinely needed a nice sit down to sober up.
  • Shopping in my favourite place (Telford) with my squidgy niece and being the first person to make her smile and laugh. Not allowed to tell my brother in law this...
  • Black Friday being chilled this year (in Telford, at least) and getting Jake some gifts.
  • My Little Pony slippers
  • The weather - sorry but I love stormy nights
Sucked:
  • Racist idiots talking loudly about ethnic minorities being evil as they walked past a member of staff in primark who was Muslim.
  • Discovering that my favourite wine is not available online and I have to import it from South Africa at great cost to myself
  • Running low on Magnum Scottish Cream liqueur
  • Back is wrecked - or as the young 'uns of the internet would say, rekt - and cannot shift the pain because I'm not allowed ibuprofen or muscle relaxants whilst on anti depressants
  • Being on anti depressants

Happens a lot there and had a hell of a lot of free samples and such myself when I've been and then ended up in pub afterwards. We drank so much one year we ended up missing last train and went back to pub until closing and booked into hotel for night.

There was this Bailey's stand where because they were serving full measures, you had to have your hand stamped so they don't serve you again.

This elderly woman sitting at the back was getting everyone to go and get samples on her behalf and was quietly getting smashed. She had about 12 by my count before I left...

Been a while since I played this so I'll play catch up.
Rocked:
  • Got promoted to assistant manager.
  • Going to see Star Wars on Monday.
  • Listening to Between the Buried and Me while playing Diablo.
  • Kids are growing up so fast and I get to have so much fun with them, plus their cuddles are amazing.
  • Evan Williams egg nog mixed with off brand Fireball.


Sucked:
  • The State Government decided that me and my ex/wife handling child support outside of court just wouldn't be fair and right, so they stepped in and brought us to court, now I'm paying the same amount ($520) except only $280 of that goes to my kids while the Government reaps the rest.
  • With Child Support being pulled straight from my paycheck, my pay bump was brought from an extra $130 a week to $8 a week
  • My promotion was to the second most profitable store in the entire enterprise, which is both good and bad.
  • Car is starting on the downward slope. :/
