I have just finished wathcing Analyze This and I'm pleased to say that it was a lot funnier than I thought it would be. I thought Billy Crystal had stopped being funny in the '80s, but this movie was great.

Recently I have had to take along hard look at what I'm doing, where I am, what I want to do and how I#m going to accomplish it.
Tuesday I was sent to London (Yay) for a meeting concerning my employment future due to the company I worked for going bust and subsequently being taken over by another company.
This company is outsourcing all their IT to yet another company.
At first we were told that our future was extremely uncertain as we wouldn't necessarily be transferred to said company, but at the meeting in London it was made clear that unless we screw up big style we would definitely transfer across under the TUPE regulations.

Anyone who has heard of Cap Gemini Ernst & Young will know that this is a fantastinc opportunity and will understand why I'm putting all brakes on my current job hunt. Yes I want to go to London, but I would really like to move down there as part of CGE&Y.

I have also decided that I really need to do something about my MCSE. To this end I have decided that I will abstain from going out in the forseeable future. I might go to the pub on occassion, but no clubnights as such (including Midian tomorrow). This is also partially down to a desire to save money as I know I will have to save up if I'm going to afford M'Era Luna, Infest and Whitby.
I might still make trips around the country though :)

I have managed to track down a couple of places in the North-West where I can take the MCSE exams, so hopefully I'll be fully certified before long...

And this leads me to my plans for my little home network Collapse )

And my non-smoking is still going well. I have been off the evil weed over two weeks without patches now, and I haven't run out of places to hide the bodies yet... :>

And while I remember, I have uploaded my MP3 list to my Yahoo briefcase.
Unfortunately I have to have people on my friendslist if they are to view the list, so let me know if you're interested...

Sometimes you read a comic strip which makes you exclaim a sound which is halfway between a laugh and a sob.

Those of you who are following world news will be particularly amused I think.
