Mmm. What an uneventful past while it has been. I've really
done very little of note. Went to bed last night with my
light still turned on, quite odd for me really. Woke this
morning to a depressing grey heavy sky. The weather has an
effect on me if its a nice sunny day I'm generally happy.
For example back in May we had a whole week of smashing
weather and I was happy all week. Yeah that was when I
first laid eyes on Leah. The beautiful friend of Georgia
the only female I have successfully actually chatted to in
the whole of 2002. Then towards the end of that marvellous
week there was a crescendo of events which involved Georgia
soaking Ash with water. Alas I haven't seen Leah since and
its been downhill from there. Ah I'm reminiscing. So yeah
skipped breakfast which is odd- I used to be able to eat 3
bowls of cereal a day. Now I hardly ever eat cereal or have
breakfast a lovely cup of tea is all I seem to have.

So food aside I then went into Brum to get my photos back
from Max. I won't be going their again - £4.99 and they are
all grainy. Stick with Jacobs me thinks. Dinner in Gareths
flat then I abused Martins facilities in the afternoon. I
scanned the photos of the accident and posted them to the
net. I really should've used this very small time window to
revise for FA exam which takes place tomorrow. But yet
again I've been avoiding revision by avoidance techniques.
Started to feel restless a few hours ago. I just wanted to
go out and do something interesting and different, easier
said then done. Yes I remember when it was put to me that I
got "Bored very easily" - I'm not sure if there is any
truth in that or was she just telling me to get another

Well a week tomorrow i'm off to Cheeky Monkeys hopefully
Martin won't worm his way out. Where I shall meet

Richard's vast collection of friends and his sister, nice.
Sorry i'm being very self centred in this entry, but i need
to rant a bit, so i will. mm. Anyway back to more avoidance
techniques, good night.


For reasons best unbeknown to myself just as I was nodding
off last night I decided to get my rat out. Yes how many
people have illegally kept a pet rat in University Halls of
Residence? Rats are great. Well
woke very early today, far to early- keep swallowing them
parecetmol. Quick session then into Brum bought a
calculator. Not a patch on Richards calculator come game
thing- its educational as well as fun. Then another session
got a phone call so we met for lunch, OFB. I then left them
and who did I stumble across in Snow Hill- Richard.

FA Exam in afternoon annoyingly had to q for ages to get
seat 53- good number. Well fecked up Section A but excelled
myself in Section B. Hopefully will have past however
coursework may drag me down. You mark my words if I fail
this time I'll past next time. So exams beside we then
checked out Seattle on the web due to Richards impending
visit. Quality Haulage tonight was V388KVY waited on stand
for a full 9 minutes, great. So thats the chronological
stuff out of the way now for the less tedious, as such.

Thought 1:

Well I don't know if its exhaustion or simply relief but I
feel all confident today. Brief exchange with flat and to
Manjit in Martins. I only talk if I'm feeling not my usual
subdued self.

Thought 2: Worringly me and Richard both spotted the same
top totty in todays exam, he says this may cause future
problems, all I can say is we've got good taste.

Thought 3: Ok it's the World Cup, yawn. England vs
Argentina today its a national event. 1 in 5 skipped work
to watch it so it must be of some importance. Bars were
full and yobs were out in force. Bald head twat was wearing
a England flag in the exam. So all this World Cup, stuff
which I'm not interested in got me thinking. Football (read
as Soccer) is not our national game, Cricket is. Our Rugby
team is the most successful in the world yet nobody seems
fussed about their success. Football is not coming home, we
won't make it to the knock out stage. So all you footie
fans enjoy it while you can.

Bitching in my FOD, yes.

Thats it


Showing feelings, showing feelings, all most feelings of an
almost human nature.

Ah, why are we so preoccupied with the little things in
life? Why do we wax lyrical on very minor unimportant

Yes, well today’s exam was Planning & Controlling Logistics
an early start at 9:30, which meant I woke at 5:56. Well I
enjoyed it; give me essay questions any day. I knew too
much on the history of Conference Lines for my own good. So
yeah hopefully I shall pass this one especially since I
included target references to Maersk the lecturers old
company. Seat 53 today.

After exam I descend in the bomb proof lift out onto
Campus. Richard and me then went off bashing first up on a
Trident on 6 to Solihull, which took a diversion, which was
nice. After looking for some place to eat in Solihull we
braved a Chinese take away, obviously Solihull is far to up
market for a Chippy. We then looked around the Touchwood
shopping centre briefly before we boarded our target. We
did a 4 to Shirley and a 69 back to Solihull so that we
could get on some real quality haulage. Claribels had there
Cateano Dart out which is very rare, so we bashed it,
quality haulage. Got off at Chelmsley Wood and were tempted
by a Pete's Citybus on 97. Richards’s first experience of
Claribels and Pete's. Then did the 22 to Kitwell because
while waiting for a Spectra on the Hagley Road we bumped
into Martin & Gareth who were off for a stroll.

Got off 22 and walked to Woodgate for the 23. More quality
haulage in the form of "R2" Scotland’s first low floor
double Decker. 79 to Wolves and 256 to Stourbridge. Ah,
Stourbridge the mini-mosher capital of the West Midlands.
Every time I'm at the bus station there is always some mini-
moshers about. To top it all I got even more quality
haulage on the 9- a Spectra, great. So all in all today’s
bash consisted of Tridents and Spectra’s, I couldn't have
wished for any more quality haulage.

So bashing aside I haven't done much else but it was good
to get out and have a ride around. This evening joined
Martin & Gareth in the pub where I was told that they went
on a canal trip with Ash and "Our Lass". That’s all really.

However Richard got me thinking as he was telling me about
recent women he had met such as a Cardiff based poet called
Octivia. I should start, maybe having a crush on someone or
just generally looking around and seeing what’s on show.
Normally I don't bother due to the pessimism I have on this
subject. But yeah whilst I was in Tesco's I was sub-
consciously looking, agh. So I've decided to have a crush
on Belinda the elfin beauty from GIS, she can now all
confuse my feelings at her pleasure.

So more tedium for today especially the bashing but hey it
was good to finally get out the flat and off campus and
sample some quality haulage. Good night, have fun.
