Spent the last half hour wanting Lucozade, then found a 500ml bottle in my bag. Now I want ten million pounds... damn, nothing in my bag.

Dribble, dribble, dribble, opportunity to pass, keep on dribbling, another opportunity, keep dribbling, dribble, lose the ball. #Gervinho

I wonder if ninjas bump into each other all the time, but have no idea what happened as they're all so incredibly stealthy?

I'm in my garden, can almost see the AP, why am I struggling to get a WiFi signal? At least the 3G signal is good. #firstworldproblems

Enjoying The Great British Bake Off on BBC2. Can't believe that guy added salt instead of sugar. Makes me look like a good cook.
Shure SE535
Monday 13th August, 2012 11:15
I've had my Shure SE535 headphones for a while now, but I don't get the chance to use them as often as I'd like. Over almost a decade I've slowly bought better headphones. It really started about 7(?) years ago when I bought a pair of Shure e2c headphones; when they eventually died I went for their e3c headphones; and (I can't remember when) finally their SE535. Every time I get a better pair I hear all sorts of subtle new sounds in some of my favourite songs and albums (e.g. Radiohead's OK Computer). My only regret is not blowing my money on good headphones a lot sooner. All those walks up to campus listening to Beth Orton could have been so much better.

Now I just need to work out if it's Radiohead's Exit Music (For A Film) that's giving me shivers down my spine or the stupid aircon here in the office. And hope that no one calls my work mobile, as I'll never hear it ring (for the record, that was a joke, I can hear it ring and feel it vibrate).

Five were much better than Jessie J with Queen.

The love children of Adam Ant and a zebra are (slowly) running up a hill towards the world's largest sugar cubes. #cupoftea #closingceremony

Finally an Arsenal Red Member. We used to win things when I was Junior Gunner (a long time ago). Maybe we'll win something this season.

I think Tim Lovejoy had too much of his alcoholic ice lolly: "It's a different level of cheese" #sundaybrunch

Blizzard Hacked
Friday 10th August, 2012 12:06
Blizzard have admitted that they were hacked, and some sensitive information was compromised by the hackers (they now have my email address, but I guess things could be a lot worse). Blizzard have posted an FAQ, which includes How did this happen?:

Like all companies doing business online, it is not an uncommon occurrence to experience outside parties trying to illegitimately gain access to the operation’s structure at some level. We are continually upgrading our security technologies, policies, protocols and procedures to protect our customers and our games against the threats that increasingly arise in today’s online world.

Is it just me, or did they completely fail to answer their question?

Is it wrong that I'm looking forward to the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie?

Great night for Team GB!

Well done Jess! Great finish!

Another penalty! Can Ramsey score twice? No he can't! Didn't get away with yet another poor shot. Order is restored. Amazefootballs.
Saturday 4th August, 2012 19:07
Ramsey took the penalty and actually (barely) put the ball in the back of a net for once! Team GB are still in this football match.

Don't make Mark Hunter talk when he can barely stand, offer him a cup of tea and tell him how proud we are with their silver medal!

Everyone's talking about singing the National Anthem. Great song by Radiohead, bassline is ridiculously catchy, but give it a break!
