Never trust a snail with no legs and scissors for fingers...

I bought a Garmin C310 on Ebay the other week as a gift for my mum, help her find places, like the kitchen and all that...anyway, the seller put on the advert 'scratch on screen from use'. So when it arrived I was a little upset to see that the lead didn't actually connect to anything (handy) and the scratch on the screen was like a scale model of the Grand Canyon only deeper. I can only assume the previous owner was Edward Scissorhands or Freddy Kruger, if you've got knives for fingers you're screwed aren't you? no wonder Kruger was so upset all the time.

To add insult to injury, I thought I'd test out the new system and to start with I was impressed...that is, until I asked it to take me to MacDonalds..the one I could see out the car window, 500 ft away. It brought up a huge list, I clicked the closest one at the top and off it went.

GOD 10, the new Channel 5

Last night I discovered a new TV channel, one I've never seen before it was called GOD 10. What was more confusing was the fact it was on channel 5...so there was I ready to waste a few hours watching Xena Warrior Princess, or Kevin Sorbo in that show all about him being a god and all the ladies loving him...I think he's also in Hercules. And there it was GOD 10.

Does anyone actually watch this? it's the most amazing channel ever, I thought that watching bidTV or QVC was hard on the presenters..constantly trying to talk about a product that even Argos wouldn't sell as if it's the greatest thing ever...but no, GOD 10, there was this guy on stage infront of about 10 billion people, talking about the fact that this event was the 24th anniversary of the show and that next year, the 25th was going to be really special...with everyone cheering and whooping. I was thinking if he'd said the same thing last year, and the year before that.

Random events

It's a sign of the times that these days you need directory enquiries to get the number for 118118...anyway,

So I'm in my new job now, down in Guildford and I'm staying at the YMCA...and the village people were right, (apart from the gay sex which so far has been a bitter disappointment) it is fun to stay there. You can get a good meal and to a certain extent you can do whatever you feel...apart from dining in the restaurant naked, so I discovered.

My car temperature gauge which is scientifically accurate to within +- 20deg told me it was 38deg yesterday, I'm not built for the heat, any word starting with 'h' gets me sweating, like hot, horse, hermaphrodite etc.

my second blog entry

See?? see how rubbish I am?...

I have already run out of anything useful or thought provoking to say. I thought about posting some Flash genius that pours forth from my fingers with the speed and consistency of a man suffering from premature ejaculation at a bikini waxing contest, but I wouldn't know where to start.

Maybe something like, if you want to be a Flash developer...but what follows I have no idea.

Except maybe saying that Flash Developers are never, no matter how good they are considered to be programmers, by REAL programmers...you know, people who wear dog tags, permanently dress in black, spend their weekends at Games Workshop...

My first blog entry

I would like to say I was forced into this by Richard in a weak attempt at creating a site with more hits than 'waynerooney-thephilosopher.com'.

I hate blogs, they're like owning a small child...they sound like a good idea at the time, playing football in the park with them, tormenting them...but when you actually get one you realise the ammount of effort needed to keep them alive for any reasonable length of time.

The only reason I have written this is because I am leaving my current company to start a new life in the south and although I have spent the last 14 months doing nothing all day, these last 2 weeks of my notice period are really starting to drag.
