Took the opportuinty to go out for a curry on Monday with Robot101 and zx64 whilst they were home for xmas, also leant a spare 17" monitor to Robot101 to use over the holidays as he couldn't carry his on the train.

Went to go and see Andy's latest band play at TJ's I was very impressed will have to go see them next time they play, the other 3 bands that played that night were nowhere near as good. TJ's hasn't changed much either, it shocked me to think that the last time I had been there was probably 3 years ago.

Finally got the case for my new system this week, got an e-mail from Dabs telling me that it was going to be delivered that same day. Naturally no-one was in to sign for it so Parcel Farce decided to return it to the depot that is about 25 minutes drive from my house as opposed to the one that is 5 minutes drive. Left for work at an sickeningly early time the next day in order to allow for picking up the parcel, luckily PF open early although I'm quite disturbed that although it says in bold writing on the card to bring ID along they happily handed the parcel over with me giving just my name and post code.

Work is quite disturbing at the moment because everybody seems to have saved their Holidays until Christmas, this means that theres only about 5 people in the building and we all work in different departments thus hardly ever seeing each other.

I'm Planning to do lots of coding/reading over the next week, must make enforced time off from work useful. xmas/new year don't seem to mean much to me any more anyway, whats more depressing is that I can't remember a time when they did.
