whitelabeldemo was moaning i didn't update this enough, so here i am once again. Sorry to everyone who still has me as a friend on here lol.
I'm turning 25 in a few weeks, and i'm kinda worried i'm doing fuck all with my life. Whilst work sucks recently i still like my job and everything else, but i feel like i could do a lot more than i currently am. I really like web design and would like to study it for real, but i also like a full time wage, so i'm a bit torn, anyone done an open uni type thing? If you have, what's it like?
For anyone who was wondering, Manchester Pride was a lot of fun, if you wanna see pics and stuff, they are on my bebo.

Just today it turns out Sky (who are owned by News Corporation/Rupert Murdoch, who also own Fox / DirecTV) are playing a really dirty game now, basically trying to price us out the market by hiking up the price of their channels. So we have refused to pay over the odds. I support Virgin in this decision, because Sky run a monopoly in this country and it's about time someone gave them a run for their money. If you do too, please go here and leave a message of support. http://allyours.virginmedia.com/fairplay/index.html
Last week i had the most amazing sex. You know the kind of sex you still feel the buzz from days later. I wont go into the gory details, though i know some of you would want that, but suffice to say, i was a very naughty boy.
Also just want to say my new favourite TV programme is Ugly Betty, camp as hell, funny, exciting and super bitchy. My favourite quote from episode four from Justin
"It's just like America's Next Top Model except noone's crying"
Also thanks to the person from whom i had said amazing sex, i also borrowed his dvd's of Battlestar Galactica (The newer one, not the 1978 one) and it's so engrossing, and something i had never even thought about watching when it was one Sky One. Not only because Jamie Bamber is a hottie (which does help) but because it has a great story, fantastic characters, and nothing like any other sci-fi series you would have seen.
Anyhoo as most of the comments will probably be about the first paragraph, if you do really want the details, just say, i might share.
Hey lj people, i'm on the bus home from Edinburgh where i've been working for the past week. My work has had me up there temporarily covering, which i thought i'd enjoy, but i haven't been really. Probably coz i miss being in my team, and maybe because it reminds me of my last job since i was up there taking telewest calls.
We also found out the new name of the company Virgin Media. I like the thought of working for Virgin company, wonder if Richard Branson will pay us a visit lol.
One good thing about the Edinburgh centre is the talent. Lots of cute guys, especially one of them, who i actually met when he floorwalked in my old workplace for a while. As ever though with any guy i fancy, he's straight.
Last week i went out with my team on a night out to glasgow, which was absolutely fantastic, i was even told i was a great dancer, which i was chuffed with. Was great music too, just one of the best nights i've had out really.
Anyhoo, if you read this them please comment, i like reading them, and the notification emails i get are about the only e-mail i get that is worth reading.
“Hello Livejournal, just waiting for my sister getting back from the chip shop. Waiting for our dinner, going to have hot dogs and chips.
Anyway, reeeallly...bored. Was at work, was...hrmmm...OK, was not as good as i hoped but, that's probably because i got shouted at first thing this morning by someone who i called she and she didn't like it very much...so fuck her.
Erm, just as well. Good news, i did pass my quality monitoring in work, but i got 87%, i did pass, so i get a bottle of wine, and a STAR BALLOON!
How gay do you get?! A big star balloon.
Anyway, like, i'll probably post this in text about...erm..quite soon.
Hey livejournal people's, Marky here making what seems to be his bi-annual livejournal update, I hope lot still read this thing.
Just a little catch-up on what i've been up to.
Recently went to Manchester Pride, and oh my god, i haven't seen so many gay clubs/pubs in one place, it's got loads. Only drawback about pride being the prices of some places was mental, but it was worth it. Also i was in a hotel which is part of the Lancashire County Cricket Club, you can actually get rooms which look on to the ground itself.
I have loads of pics of the weekend in the gallery to look at. Before you all ask though, i did behave myself, even though i had the opportunity not to, just wanted to take in the whole place.Would definately go again. What i had noticed, is there are lots more camp people and drag queens in Manchester than Glasgow, though i can see why, i dont think a drag queen walking through argyle street would fit in. lol
Just to let you now, the pictures are some random ones from the weekend, the girl is Louise, a lovely fag hag who kept my male fag hag Cy amused. Heh, just jesting, she was lovely, and a total computer geek and anime geek, so we got on well. The other guy next to her is Gavin, her fag lol. The pictures from high up where taken at the top of Spirit, which has a barbecue, where i tasted the best burger EVER made. The fact i was slightly drunk and hungry as fuck might have given bias to that opinion, but it was still fucking lovely. The Galaxy FM stage was cool, was not so famous acts as per usual with this sort of thing though. K-Klass were cool though. Best part was Wes Butters and Irish Alan getting their tops off heh. The sculpture is B of the Bang,which is amazing to look at, it's huge. It sits outside Sportscity where the City of Manchester Stadium resides. Which we also went to, along with Old Trafford, which was cool since Matt Busby was from Bellshill near where i live. The weird picture that looks like a boat was the food court in the Trafford Centre, quite cool, it's in the style of a New Orleans Sailboat. The coneheads we seen just before we left Canal Street, and i don't think i've laughed as much in ages. They were just SO good at their act, bit freaky, kept their mouths open constantly, and when people took pictures of them, they both got their cameras at exactly same timeand took a picture back, then they found a woman with the same jacket as them, pointed at her, the chased after her and danced around her, whilst we were in hysterics, then they followed someone into a pub.
Anyhoo, enough from me, here's what you really want, the pics:
“Hey Live Journal, umm don't really know what to say. Just trying this out cos <lj user="boyzici"> told me too. Umm. So hiya. If you want me to record anything else then let me know. I know my dulcet tones are just loveleh. Anyway bubye.”
I'm liking the new job so far, two days in, everyone seems dead friendly and seems like a relaxed atmosphere. I also like the fact that people from my old work are there too, it's like a comfort blanket.
The only bad thing is the system we are being trained on is overly complicated for my liking, will be so much better when they change over to telewest systems, which is scheduled for later this year. So will need to grin and bear it until new system is started, once they do that though i will have such a headstart, since i know the telewest systems inside out.
If you want to see some pictures of the surrounding area, look under the cut.
I really like the new place, we did recently hear though that some people will be asked to go temporarily over to my old workplace to help out, which would be HILARIOUS if they sent us over. I doubt we'll be asked though, probably be a bit akward. To further the weirdness though, on my first day at NTL, i saw the compliance manager from my old job, and was like WTF?! It's kinda normal though, nearest centre used to be Edinburgh, but now since the merge, it's my new workplace.
Also, if you were wondering where my Big Brother comments are, this year i'm mostly posting them on Synthetic.
I have a new job, starting as of monday. i'll be working for
To be honest the job wont be greatly different to what i do just now, seen as i work at an outsourcer taking customer care and faults calls for Telewest just now. But now i'm gonna be working for them directly, and dealing with the NTL side of the business, as at the moment, despite being merged, still operate seperately.
So glad to be moving as where i am just now is getting worse by the minute, and at my new job, a lot of workmates i had at my current job, are now at NTL too.
Sorry about the length of time for an update, but i'm an lazy arse lol
