18th January 2011

I would like to start by saying, courtesy of an offer from Ben Miller who has pulled out of this event, I would like to say I accept his offer of running in the Brighton Marathon in his place! I have been considering and been doing some little training the last few months planning to come out of long distance running! I will try and step up my training and get prepared as best as I can, it should be fun whilst a good test. More details to come soon!

The last week or so not a lot has gone on in general, the early part of the year is always a bit dead apart from Ray cheering us up at Oxfam! Though been a little bit skint recently (was main reason why I did not take part in some birthday celebrations for some people sorry) but get paid next week and hope to finally step up my adventures in 2011!

I got quite excited about a first round Australian Open match today Hewitt-Nalbandian 9-7 in the fifth I bet the ITF were sweating over the lack of a final set tie break yet again, seems to be the fashion the last year to enjoy first round matchs from Mahut-Isner to Woking VS Brighton!

But that is all I have to say for now, the Knightmare spoof is on the way and will appear the next few days! But people have a good January!

29th November 2010

am in mourning at Strike Towers, whereas England lost one of its greatest comedians recently in Norman Wisdom, it was Canada's turn when one of my heros and great influences growing up Leslie Nielsen passed away last night! I will never forget the great Naked Gun movies, and will be keen to watch the great movies again.

RIP Legend

Meanwhile I finally managed to win my first ever Quiz Night, at The Greyhound although there was just one other team formed from scratch and the main team that always wins decided to pull out at the last minute. The prize just a foil FA Cup. Apart from the work experience continuing at Oxfam and St Catherines Hospice (where the staff seem to enjoy the way I put away the hangers), not a lot has gone on.

Next month there should be a fair bit about various antics I get up to that includes Christmas partys, 50/50 chance of attending a school reunion, 90's retro theme nights and a wedding reception! Hopefully won't be as skint, then.

18th November 2010

As people may have noticed I am starting to drift the site away a little bit from just diary entrys and now adding a random article on some strange random facts from around the world! The diary entrys like this will remain though. In truth the last two weeks have been a little quiet apart from the work experience and resuming the cooking course!

There will be a new Strike Factory Quote Of The Year competition and there are currently two entries I would like to nominate Sarah Steeples for her 'Do they make porridge?' in reference to the Quaker House that Strike Towers used to be based close to! The other is a surprise challenge from Woking manager Graham Baker for his comment pre penalty interview 'My players will close our eyes and hope for the best' and the Cardinals did just that against the Seagulls! Its up to the public to decide who wins by posting comments here or on facebook!

I have been addicted to old skool computer games from the old Sega Mega Drive (Genesis for my North American fans) the last few weeks, using an emulator and enjoying the likes of Sonic, Mortal Kombat 3, and Super Fantsy Zone! Dont make games like that anymore!
