I've had a cold that won't quite become a PROPER cold, just general heavy tiredness (Even lifting a pack of milk feels heavy) for four and a half weeks now...

Funny thing is when I went to Malta diving I kind of postphoned it for a week and hardly noticed. As soon as I came back home it returned with a vengeance though  :tantrum: :tantrum:

Having to go on a double date with two people I don't even know or want to know.

and then having to spend time with them after when we all go back to my GF home.

me and my GF Joan don't get to see each other every day as we live to far a part and me having to spend time chatting to some fella when I cud be spending it all with Joan is pi##ing me of big time.

but I have to be nice as its Joan's best friend from when they were kids.

time to get drunk.

Sorry customhobby. The joyful stomping of minor sized canines should of course rightly belong in the ANTI rant thread.... or possibly in the "other hobbies" thread (do we have one...?)
I'm so STOOPID sometimes  :tantrum: :tantrum: :tantrum:

:tantrum: No worries Bodhi. Everyone forgets every now and then. I really wrote the post hoping to see Ray. He has been quiet of late.

Isn't there another Hell Dorado player in my area?  :tantrum::tantrum::tantrum:

I've finished painting my boxed set minis by the end of September, and the only other player I found didn't even had painted minis and hasn't been showing any life sign for more than two months :tantrum:

The only games people seem to be playing massively here are #*ù$µ WH40K and #*ù$µ WHFB :tantrum::tantrum:

But I'm really not interested in those games, first because I really don't like plastic minis :tantrum: and also because I feel like a #*ù$µ retarded when the GW store guys talk to me :tantrum: :tantrum: (no I won't EAT your #*ù$µ green stuff, YES I know it's not TRUE green stuff but you're the only #*ù$µ store selling some in this #*ù$µ area :tantrum::tantrum::tantrum:)

The only other minis shop mainly does GW, Rackham crud*py stuff and Warmachine. But I really don't like the Warmachine minis look :tantrum:

I think there's a game club where people play Bloodbowl. I think I'll just blow the dust off my never-played-team and join them.

The worst thing is that Hell Dorado sold very well according to the shop guy, but nobody comes at his store to play :tantrum:

I HATE HATE HATE CONTRACTORS.  :mumum: They either are really nice and over charge for there services or charge reasonably and  don't come over when they say they would.  I went home early TWICE to let this guy in.  And both times he was either late or a no show. WTF!   :tantrum: :tantrum: :tantrum: :tantrum:  Pick up the gwad dam phone will ya!

The sad part about all of this is he was recommended by my brother.  Guess what he is a plummer!   :mumum: :mumum:

I really really hate it when things go wrong and I don't know how to figure it out.  I will either screw it up more or add much more time and effort then required. :smalldiablo:

as will the police, hospital workers, ambulance drivers, and most civil servant be too.

pay rises below inflation for the 6th year running, govt minister voting themselves 6% and telling civil servants they can only have 1.5% while cutting their jobs and expecting the same amount of work with 25% less staff.

the next couple of years are going to see lots of strikes in the UK, all against a labour govt :tantrum: :tantrum:

Some little git just left me neutral feedback on my eBay store because one sheet of plasticard on his order was "dirty and edge not grate" (sic)  :tantrum: My first non-positive feedback in over 5 years selling on eBay, and he didn't even have the sense or decency to get in touch first to raise the issue. I always make a point of replacing/refunding for anyone who's not satisfied with their stuff - and in this case, the irony is that the same guy also left positive feedback for the other two items he bought saying how good a deal it was and how great the postage discount.

Some people just need a good kicking :tantrum:

Selected two sets of these and payed for they right away.
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=320189858089&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=011

The guy emailed me asking if it was ok to post them Monday instead of Friday and I said that was fine.
The parcel arrived on Thursday and was postmarked Wednesday but I was happy enough.
I was not so happy after opening it as only one set was in the parcel.  :icon_neutral:
I contacted him and after three emails he said there was only one sent and he would send out another.
With Christmas two weeks away I allowed a good amount of time for them to arrive, but when It was starting hit the new year I emailed him again and he said would post it out on Wednesday 02-01-08 and I said that was ok.

It was getting close to the 45 day limit to clam with paypal so I waited till 44 days since I payed and reported it to paypal.  :knob:
After two weeks with him no replying and me post three messages I said I would upgrade to a clam today and I have.  :tantrum:

I have the feeling he was just stringing me along and waiting for the paypal time to run out.  :tantrum:

I've just had 3 days off work with a viral infection of my right eye. Lesions, bleeding, swollen agony for the best part of a working week but the anti-virals are working and despite continuing pain and swelling I went back into work today. So I do not appreciate the implication that I am some sort of  :swear: -ing slacker working their system, at my ironically named "Welcome Back" meeting!!!! Especially as these are the only days off sick so far this financial year!!! Gah!!!!! I gotta get me a new job!

I love my network. Loading anything is like I am on a 14.4 modem.  So when I do have the opportunity to look up some figs online, takes me forever then I get the kicker.  "Click here for a bigger picture"  and guess what, IT'S THE SAME SMALL PICTURE  :tantrum: :tantrum: :tantrum: :tantrum: :tantrum:

I agree, its so annoying when you click on a pic and it shows exactly the same size one as before.  I usully close down the page and erase from memory as their lack of effort leads to my lack of buying from them  :icon_w00t:  You can right click and save pic so you can zoom in on it but it shouldnt be necessary and is just laziness on the posters part.
