No fun here.... look away now.

Me stuff...
I haven't got a lot to say to today. I'm over-tired. Work isn't excessively busy, but it is demanding in a dripping tap kind of way. A bit here, a bit there, none of which are related means that I keep swapping between all these little bits and after a while they start to blur into one. This makes them taxing on the brain cell as I struggle to keep them all segmented. Clearly I'm in need of more coffee. It's just not any fun really.

A disturbed night of sleep (not that I've had many undisturbed nights with the temperatures being they way they have of late) caused by daughter an friends having a "big night out" in the middle of the week. At least I don't have insomnia. Also not much fun.

The Motor is going to be with Doctor M for a few more days while it has the rear brake calliper's reconditioned. Turns out that this was the most economical method of replacement, and as it's sadly nearing the end of it's life, then it makes sense to go that way. Have decided that a replacement vehicle will most certainly be acquired in about 12 months time when I will have to face an entire re-financing package as part of the end of the fixed rate mortgage. Fingers crossed for the interest rate staying low and stable - although my record on this subject means that it's likely to go through the roof days before I'm scheduled change it. Sometimes it feels like I'm financing the countries debt all on my own!!... and that's no fun.

Not that I care about Tennis a great deal, but Rodger Federa has been knocked out of Wimbledon - I'm sure that'll make for a more interesting competition for those that are interested.

Apple are looking for Antenna Engineers - if you happen to be one and always fancied a job at apple, now is your chance. Strange that it coincides with the alleged issues with conductivity - something I've found hard to reproduce, but have. That said, it still hasn't effected any calls or usage of the handset for me personally. If you want all the techie geeky background, you'll be wanting to read this: Apple's iPhone 4: Thoroughly Reviewed. Fun-ny, but not fun.

The US Popular Science website is reporting a future hormone fix for healing teeth. Interesting science but not fun.

A serious piece of weather is approaching Texas in the form of Hurricane Alex. I'm sure you already know that hurricanes are named alphabetically. Here's the lowdown:
In 1953, the National Weather Service picked up on the habit of Naval meteorologists of naming the storms after women. Ships were always referred to as female, and were often given women's names. The storms' temperament certainly seemed female enough, shifting directions at a whim on a moment's notice. In 1979, male names were inserted to alternate with the female names,to the delight of women's-libbers everywhere.

There are actually six lists of names in use for storms in the Atlantic. These lists rotate, one each year; the list of this year's names will not be reused for six years. The names get recycled each time the list comes up, with one exception: storms so devastating that reusing the name is inappropriate. In this case, the name is taken off the list and another name is used to replace it; there will not be another Hurricane Andrew, because Andrew has been replaced by Alex on the list.
Not much chance of a "Hurricane Fun" though.

If you don't think your selected password is up to the job, you might want to check it out here: http://howsecureismypassword.net/. Useful, but not fun.

Old Spice Ad's for the ladies..... What the Feck is going on in these ad guys heads when they come up with this stuff?? Apparently this first one was shown during the Superbowl to great acclaim.

Now they've followed it up with this... I mean, that's not at all sexist in any way is it?


I suppose they are a bit fun, but only a bit.

While the weather's looking good at the moment, forecast is for rain this evening. This is just "bloody typical" as I haven't had a night out for ages and have a WTC meet scheduled for this evening in a summer pub with a garden. Sitting in a pub garden in the rain is just not fun.

Well that's today's entertainment. I hope yours is more fun than mine....
