nice fish

Hum Drum

Back in Bristol again after a longer than anticipated but not unpleasant stay in Cheltenham. Sleep and health have both suffered from the weekend, but that's not been helped by my reasonably obsessive playing of Unreal 2. Apparently if I don't hear anything by the end of the week I can assume my job is safe at LogicaCMG. That will be one less worry, but I'm still hunting for projects (little success) and external jobs (I have yet to receive a response to ANY of my applications).

One potential project I have found is in Leatherhead for 4 months, which would see me staying at my mum's house near Guildford and seeing kissycat1000 on weekends - less than ideal but I'm getting rather desperate. Which brings me to my place in Bristol. I need to see about sorting out some sort of arrangement as it just doesn't make sense to pay 4 months' rent and bills for a place I'm not going to be in! So, more stress and uncertainty, which is not helping. Still, if I do stay at my mum's I will be dragging her screaming and kicking into the 21st century by getting her ADSL (cable, my first choice, isn't available in her area).

On the upside, this weekend is the weekend of the ride, so I'm looking forwards to that and to meeting dennyd. It's a shame my exhausts are in such a bad way though :/ I can't really afford to do anything about it now (as they are £500 for both sides) and even if I could it would make no sense until I hear what the outcome of my speeding offence (committed Dec 16th) is. I find it a bit dismaying that I can be left in limbo for so long. I will do some further investigation and see if this leaves me any legal loopholes.

Oh, and I have a little theological study I want to do as well, results to form a post sometime in the near future. Something that's tickled me and could be of benefit to a selection of people.
