Where the hell is Matt?

No not me, I’m here. I mean, where the hell is this Matt? A video of a guy called Matt dancing some ridiculous dance in many amazing locations around the globe. A chewing gum brand caught wind of it and sponsored him to do it all over again – nice work if you can get … Continue reading “Where the hell is Matt?”

No not me, I’m here. I mean, where the hell is this Matt? A video of a guy called Matt dancing some ridiculous dance in many amazing locations around the globe. A chewing gum brand caught wind of it and sponsored him to do it all over again – nice work if you can get it. I think it’s quite well known now, thanks to YouTube. Thanks to Matt, who pointed this out to me (about 3 months ago).

Jackie Millard will be missed

Today I was given the sad news that Jackie passed away this morning, after her short battle with cancer. I first met Jackie when she was working on the reception at Tarsus, as I arrived for my interview. Her warm and genuine greeting brightened my day, as it did everyday we worked together. Jackie was … Continue reading “Jackie Millard will be missed”

Today I was given the sad news that Jackie passed away this morning, after her short battle with cancer. I first met Jackie when she was working on the reception at Tarsus, as I arrived for my interview. Her warm and genuine greeting brightened my day, as it did everyday we worked together. Jackie was generous, joyful, kind and everybody’s friend. Jackie, I will miss your laugh, your stories, your values and your outward fondness for George Clooney.

Whoops, I did it again…

I woke up in chuffin Milton Keynes again. Not Friday, but the Friday before. I popped over to Hammersmith to see the guys from Tarsus, had a few beers at the Laurie Arms and left at the perfectly reasonable hour of 11. I text the misses to say I’d be home in an hour and … Continue reading “Whoops, I did it again…”

I woke up in chuffin Milton Keynes again. Not Friday, but the Friday before. I popped over to Hammersmith to see the guys from Tarsus, had a few beers at the Laurie Arms and left at the perfectly reasonable hour of 11. I text the misses to say I’d be home in an hour and a half. I got to Euston to find the blinkin train was full, donned my earphones and rested against the screen. When a seat became available I plonked myself down – the biggest mistake of the night!
I blinked and found myself in MK, yet again. I was so annoyed with myself. The guard happily told me there’s no more trains in the London direction until 3:40. Current time 00:45.

That’s a miserable feeling. The cabbie wanted £60. I didn’t have much to do the following day, so wait it was.
I strolled around Milton Keynes for 3 hours. Not an interesting place to be either. It’s all blocks of offices in the middle of their own car parks. I found some police who directed me in the direction on the Theatre District, but I wasn’t about to enter the last night Weatherspoons or whatever it was on offer. Instead, I just continued to wander the streets and take a few pictures. Very dull!

So has anyone got any hints on how to stay awake? I was listening to music on my phone, which actually made the alarm (which I had set) inactive apart from flashing the screen.
I’m thinking next time, I’m going to eat. Start munching on a baguette, just to keep me busy.
