Uncle Maffydoo!

I'm an uncle! My little sister Amy had a baby boy called Ben. Didn't ask dimensions of aforementioned bundle of joy although I think I should have done considering how many times I've been asked. Don't see why it's so important because I reckon it'll sting a bit however heavy he is... Now I'll have an excuse to play with Lego again in a few years!

Good work Amy and Deacon ;)

EDIT: Crikey... look what they made! And here too! Wow! I am speechless! (Sorry Amy... I HAD to publish those piccys.)

A Moment of Clarity

Forgive me but this may sound a bit convoluted but this is what's happening in my head at the moment...

Smoking's great but I don't smoke... I did for about fifteen years but I stopped on the third of February this year and it's safe to say it made me really miserable for a while. It's like there is a part of you missing, a really important part that calms you down, makes you happy and makes you look really cool.

I started because a lot of my friends and family smoked and I couldn't go against the flow and at fifteen you feel like you're going to live forever. I confess, I still feel like I'm going to live forever but I reached thirty and realised that I'd spent half my life inhaling carcinogenic substances and that's not good. So I stopped. I've managed one hundred days but that was because of a girl and I started up as soon as we split up so that one doesn't count. I've managed sixty days but I started a new job and turned into a stress monkey so that doesn't count either.

This time around, I used nicotine replacement patches and they really worked well. I couldn't say if they actually physically replaced the addiction but I reckon they worked great as a placebo if anything.

It's now been months since my last smoke and I realised that I can't remember when I had my last craving. I didn't have one at the Reading Festival... too drunk... I'm pretty sure the last one was at the start of August. I have realised that it no longer feels like there is something missing from my life as far as smoking is concerned. This realisation caused an what alcoholics refer to a 'a moment of clarity.' I think I have become so obsessed with not exposing myself to cigarettes and other smokers that I've retreated far into my cave. Have you noticed how infrequently this blog is updated? That's because there's been nothing to really say. I haven't been interacting with other human beings properly.

Last time I "gave up giving up", I started smoking. Today, 239 days since my last smoke, I can safely say that I "gave up giving up" but this time I don't need a fag. I no longer have this excuse so I'm going to have to do stuff again. Perhaps there's something more deep rooted than smoking to blame on my recent hermit like tendencies (I'm not your average run-of-the-mill human by a long, long way) but it's convenient to blame it on the smokes.

Let's Go!

Go here and play a dHTML version of Lemmings. It's very useful for a sly break at work and Lemming Armageddon Megadeath still makes me smile.

Galaxy Explorer, my favorite set Finally! The intermaweb makes itself useful. It's a huge shame it's about twenty years too late for me...

Lego is the best toy in the history of creation. It's better than Playstation. It's better than Transformers. Heck, it's even better than my old ZX Spectrum! I found this website that has nearly all of the instruction books from nearly all of the Lego sets, EVER! I never new the offical names for my favorite toys. Now I do. Woohoo! My favorite set was always 928, the "Galaxy Explorer"

The nostalgia oozing from every single pore in my body right now is, quite frankly, distrubing. Please excuse me while I shamelessly wallow.

When I stumbled across this, I knew I must have been REALLY bored at work... ho-hum.
