Damp and grey today. In

Damp and grey today. In spite of everything, spirits are a bit down today. It’s hard to get motivated on mornings like this.
What has got me motivated though is receiving the “parents find $71,000 in boy’s closet” spam at least 30 times so far today. I’m so motivated to act by that – and the action I’ll be taking is to install Mailwasher.
I’m also motivated to send a shitty note to my neighbours. They are fruit and vegetable wholesalers, and every weekday morning for the past month or so, a van or lorry has arrived outside their door to deliver goods at 5am. And this morning, it was parked outside my window, with the engine running and the stereo on loud for nearly 25 minutes. AND the f***ing arsewipe driver kept using his horn because they were clearly not answering the door. RANT! RAGE!! Let’s just hope that natural justice sorts them out.

Word to the wise –

Word to the wise – drinking three beers before you get home and eat does nothing for coherence.
Beer on the way home with Sarah, Polly and two of their colleagues from Wileys. And, foolishly, I’ve promised to meet up with them again after I’ve eaten.

OK. Some criticism has been

OK. Some criticism has been levelled at me for hinting at stuff and then saying that I can’t talk about it.
Well, I guess that has been slightly unfair. However, it is confidential, so there is very little I can tell you.
But what I can tell you is this: I’ve been talking to a couple of guys for several months about the idea of setting up a new business. For a while, it has looked as though the whole thing was going to get no further than that – talking. However, it has now all kicked off in a big way, and I have to do some major research, talk to a whole bunch of people, and put together a comprehensive business plan and marketing proposal which will inform a decision as to whether or not to go ahead with the whole project. This is exactly the sort of thing that my marketing diploma was training me for, although it is marginally scary now that I have to do it for real. But now that I’m getting past the initial shock that the whole thing is going somewhere and that little me is expected to pull it together, I’m beginning to form some ideas in my mind as to how to go about it and what form and direction it should take. And, not only that, but I’ve actually started doing it too, and I’m getting good practical and moral support too from one or two very excellent people (they know who they are!) – support in the form of advice, information and the occasional hug.
I can’t really tell you much more than that, I’m afraid. But I’m sure you will appreciate the confidential nature of it. As news breaks, you’ll be among the first to know.
