20th March 2010

Well as I write this in the new Strike Towers this long cold winters end is just an hour away. I moved into my new flat in Three Bridges (former Victorian commuter village now suburb) area of Crawley on Monday though initially with no gas which resulted in me sleeping round Eamonn Rea’s flat.


Although I have electricity and gas, I currently have no cooking facilities of note in kitchen with exception of kettle and toaster, so having to go to nearby Open House, have the odd take away or friends/ family for cooked meals. It does not help money wise I am having to be tight until I get paid Tuesday and Community Care Grant does not come through until early April at the earliest.


But otherwise it has been a good week, enjoying my new home. Plus listening to Brighton and Hove Albions impressive wins against Brentford and Oldham and Crystal P*lace marooned in the drop zone. It was looking a good weekend until England failed to spoil Frances Grand Slam party in Paris, a complete repeat of 2004 when shortly after getting elected as Youth MP and a member of the West Sussex Youth Cabinet a similar good weekend in Pulborough when Mr Ball witnessed France brush aside then World Champions England in the same style, another weekend wrecked.


Talking of Youth MP, it is five years since due to personal problems sadly my Youth MP spell ended by me deciding not to run for second term, but it was a positive experience and I thank Pandora Ellis and the youth Westside of Gods County for believing in me.


The other day on Facebook, I got a message that Pandora Ellis organiser of West Sussex Youth Cabinet and fellow former Youth MP Claire Bridges are taking part in a brave mission to dominate Kilimanjaro. They need sponsorship, and I wish them the best of luck. Anyone that fancy’s helping them out go to the facebook group Claire, Pandora and Tor dominate KILIMANJARO!!! or theclimb.ne0.us

6th March 2010

Well the last week has been pretty confusing regarding the flat. I got told by last Friday I would hear about the flat, but did not get told until Monday. On Monday hostel manager Val rang up Moat Housing Assocatition, and heard apparently due to supposed ‘problems’ the flat had it would only be used as emergency accomadation, and I would have to bid for another one. Most of this week I have been a bit down as a result and quiet. I was about to slag off Moat Housing (don’t worry I am just joking), when on Friday Valerie informed me that Moat Housing had rung up and said that the flat is suitable to live in and invited me to an interview and viewing of the flat finally next week. Hopefully the flat should be in a reasonable state and not as bad as they were earlier making out.


I have been recently amazed watching a recent interview how more stunning Anna Kournikova seems than when she was a tennis pro. As the famous PE teacher Francis Fahey once said, she will get better with age just a shame her tennis did not. As some fans and friends will know from school days, Anna Kournikova was a fave blonde Russian tennis star of mine who was top 10 in singles (despite not winning a WTA singles title), and a doubles star. But it not just her playing ablility wowing crowds of teenage boys and adult men in packed stadiums for other reasons in a short tennis career during late 90’s and early 00’s. She was one of my first crushes (we all have them don’t we guys) I had a massive fondness for (although I did not go stalking her or sending endless love letters and naked pictures of myself to her). So much so that it became common at school for pupils and teachers to believe in the myth that Anna Kournikova was the secret girlfriend of yours truly, especially when they discovered the odd photo of the girl in sexy Adidas tennis attire amongst my school work!


I once received a supposed email newsletter mentioning of her having a relationship with a Sussex schoolboy called Charles Ball (then aged 14 and certainly illegal for Miss Kournikova to date unless we escaped to Canada or some other country). To this day no one has claimed responsibility for the email newsletter, although I think I know very well who was behind it at school. I can safely confirm that sadly I have never met or had a relationship with Miss Anna Kournikova. But anyway here is the nice interview discussing what she gets up to nowadays courtesy of World Tennis Magazine! http://www.worldtennismagazine.com/archives/431

15th January 2010

Firstly want to start on a serious note I would like to say my thoughts are with Haiti and its people after their awful earthquake which has hit the poorest nation in the western hemisphere very badly, and I hope to donate a little bit of money to the Red Cross, like a few friends have done that can help this Caribbean nation!


Meanwhile the snow has impacted on my lifestyle in the last week, but I have coped much better despite having to miss two birthday partys over the weekend, thanks to a much improved coat and boots given to me by my parents for Christmas, that ensures I am not slipping about or freezing!


I have been stuck at home listening to old Namco Arcade theme music from the classic Ridge Racer and Tekken series games. I admit this is scary I know, but the Japanese game developers did hire some good DJs, though still listening to decent electro house from the likes of Soulwax etc though! Please clear snow so I can stop getting bored and doing strange stuff! haha



PS I live on land owned by Quakers the church people, not a manufacturing site, although they might make and enjoy Quaker Oats after their Sunday service at the 17th Century Quaker House! Plus has anyone got a spare Aston Villa Vs Brighton match ticket please? Get in touch if you have one!
