Just been for a run and nearly killed myself, my heart is beating so loudly it's not funny. But by the end of this week I should manage it no problem. fingers crossed.

I've been sober all week and want to celebrate, how do you celebrate without alcohol, my first thought was to go for a pint ironically, I may just sit around and watch sh!tty Sunday tv, Columbo etc.

Congrats on getting this far Dubz. I think the running is a great way to keep you busy and help keep you away from the pub. You need to find other treats now, trips to the cinema, nice restaurants (with no alcohol)maybe a gig or two - stuff like that. Anyway, I take my hat off to you for having the gutts to give this a go. Good luck.

Thanks guys.

Sending a hug for Fen.

Today I went for a walk into town, twice. Second time I went in to buy a printer, absolutely useless, I need a colour one to print out all my course materials. Why do they all do different things, pages per minute, wireless, 1 cartridge or 2 or even 4. Also if I spend money on a fucking printer I want a fucking lead with it !! (DVD players are the same these days you have to buy a scart). I've tried to shave it down to 2 or 3 but everytime I do another pops up.

There is a couple of not bad HP ones but I'm not buying anything by Hewlett Packard ever again the fucker flood your computer with auto updaters, programs about other products, programs about buying ink cartridges. When I bought this laptop it was HP and had no less than 3 seperate fucking DVD players on it.

Mind you I did also run into someone and get a bit of business out of the way.

In the end, it doesn't matter which one you choose. All printers are evil.

Keep it up, Dubz!

I just submitted the first portion of my UK Visa application! AHH! Appointment on Friday to submit secondary info, and I should have an answer next week sometime. Crazy.
I was watching Love Actually on the weekend and grinning whenever they showed London.

Nevermind London, it's full of tossers, except Grinner (if you can find her), come to Dublin it's much better (although the way things are going there may not be much left of it soon)

Only messin' , Great News !!

True. But it's best to get one that has separate inks cartridges, so you don't have to chuck half used ink when one colour finishes.

got a phone interview tomorrow, and I think I'm going to faint when the phone rings. I hate not being able to see my interviewer... it makes me incredibly nervous, which is really incredibly stupid, because the job description sounds just perfect! oh well.

Weirdmom Anne has done phone interviews. Maybe she can give you some tips.

I would have thought that these would be easier than a "face to face" At least the interviewer can't see you go tomato red and squirm in your seat when faced with tricky questions. Good luck anyway :)
