Happy New Year!

Ok, so it's the eve of New Years eve. Just incase I don't get the chance, have a Happy New Year!

If you own a PS3 then add me to your friends: scooby1970

I have quite a few games, so be prepared to play me at something!

On a little side note, this Christmas week WAS the best week this year, even though I have been really ill since boxing day. I had a virus that totally knocked me out, made me bed-bound until today, and even now I have lost the hearing in my left ear :( Ouch! It hurts. But what made it so good was the fact that Sara came down from Newport on Friday, nice and early, and has been with me until this morning. Everything was wonderful... And then an hour before she left, it was like there was this evil-time-bomb inside her, she totally changed. We had a HUGE argument for no reason other than I asked why she had suddenly gone into a bad mood (AH! Thats why!). One word lead to another and now... she says its all over for good this time.

Now, I've been here a few times since Saras accident a few weeks ago, but why oh why does this keep happening? It's like she shows she loves me, then she takes it away.... Each and every time!!! This week for example, amazing London trip, best Christmas, bad illness but she comes to comfort me and then... BANG!!!! Anyone got ANY ideas? Please let me know, cos I am pulling my hair out at the moment, as much as I love her!

Anyways, Happy New Year Amigos, talk soon!

Merry Christmas Everybody

Or, as we say here "Merry Xmas Butt, ow pissed are ew!". So, finally Christmas is here and it really is the best time of year. I've been out and about buying pressies and generally stressing over what to get people, but finally my work is done.

I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. My friends in America who are into their Jan & Dean and Beach Boys music. My friends on the Playstation Network. My friends on the retro gaming forums, and all the rest of you who have stuck by me through thick and thin.

May 2008 bring us peace and a better World to live in...

...And girlfriend Ho Ho Ho's.

Ok, so thing is, had one of the best weekends ever this weekend with Sara. Strange how arguments the previous week can make things so much better when you have staff parties etc to go to.

Anyways, we went to The Comedy Club (Glee) in Cardiff and it was a great night. The first comedian was a Yank and was absolutly shite! The whole place just fell silent, and I think everyone thought the night was gonna be crap. However, there was a surprise for us all, as the next act was none other than Rob Brydon, who if you don't know has won numerous comedy awards, and infact is Welsh himself. The crowd went wild, and the night really started going with a bang. The final comedian was an Irish fella Colin Murphy. Now, I now Sara nor myself had heard of him, but he is apprantly a huge comedic figure, and he surely was, as he tore the house down.

On the downside, I paid £16 for a small platter of food, which consisted of chips, sweetcorn and a couple of chicken legs which was damn-right horrible. On Saturday we regretted the food as it made us both feel quite shitty.

Also over the weekend I got home on Sunday evening and managed to play my latest game purchase, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune for the PS3. Wow! Another "must have" title for the PS3, and one that surely must be making every 360 and wii owner just a little bit jealous that they didn't buy the superior console. I can say that, because I've owned all consoles and coputers since the Grandstand Pong and I'm a bit of a geek on these subjects... Still love my Dreamcast though ;)

Until next time!
