So I did it. I bought the Range Rover Sport. Now I have to pack for skiing.










Now I have to start modifying it :)

P.S. I did try to hide behind a cut but the tags just won't behave (can't possibly have been me!

Subject:New car time
Time:8:37 pm.
Seems to be the only time I post anything on here. The BMW went back and I took an A4 on lease for about 7 months while I bedded into a new job. New job and a lot less money I hasten to add - but its great! So given I like the company and, it seems, for some strange reason they like me - I decided to splash out on a new set of wheels. Week commencing 5th January I shall be joining the cheshire set and taking delivery of a brand new, 09 model, Range Rover Sport. How sad that at my age the only thing I really get excited about is a new car.

Subject:A rare moment of self indulgence ...
Time:2:18 am.
... saw me bouncing around in front of Billy Corgan and Smashing Pumpkins last Friday night in Manchester. Nearly 17 years since I last saw them live!!! For the second time in my life it was just utterly moving.

I seriously believe that through the ages we have been blessed with geniuses in various guises who just fall into the perfect profession effortlessly. Palladio, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Einstein etc. I also genuinely believe that in our time we are blessed with two such individuals in the guise of Billy Corgan and Thom Yorke who simply breeze through the creation of such wonderful notation its sickening.

Friday night was awesome! They played for 2 hours and 40 minutes straight without missing a beat or hitting a bum note. I'm lucky to have seen them again and hope I can again one day!

For any fans who would like to see the gig fakeplasticduran on youtube has posted some reasonable footage sound wise at least. I would recommend checking out the acoustic version of 1979 and my favourite "Drown" (albeit without the 12 minutes of in key feedback on the Singles soundtrack).

Ahhh - now for Radiohead in June!

Time:10:01 pm.
I am sat in the bar of the City Inn hotel in Westminster. My usual stopover location whence in London (at least once a week). I just had dinner with my boss and I am now feeling a little tipsy.

I can't say I enjoy my job but the money is amazing and it feeds a fantastic lifestyle and, if I am careful, a decent retirement. anyway - out of the blue today this project lands in my lap at which I gaze with my usual degree of boredom and disdain when I realise what it actually entails. All of a sudden I find I am interested in my job again. Just when I thought there were no challenges left in my field of expertise this particular opportunity presents a rather unique challenge and thus has finally reinvigorated a rather jaded view of my chosen field of expertise. For once I am delighting in the planning of how to resolve this particular client challenge in a way that not only offers client value but also realises fat margins for my profit centre. Its also BIG! It would have to be ... small deals excite no-one right?

I now find myself questioning whether I can configure this client solution enough? Usually its conscious competence across the board - this is so much more invigorating if it wasn't for the confidential nature of the deal I would want to share it all on here. I lookf forward to the closing of tomorrows boring and mundane deal so I can focus on this new far reaching outsource challenge.

Ah life is good. Time to order another Merlot!

Subject:New Car
Time:9:28 am.
I have 12 months left on the lease for my current car but if I am to order something else I should really be thinking about doing that now.

My problem is I feel I should not get something flash and instead put money into buying a new house or something like that. But sitll the kid in me wants a new toy to play with. Seeing as the car I have now is somewhat of an old mans car I feel I should get something more sporty but I get scared when I see how much money a flash sports car would cost me.

My current (long) shortlist is as follows:
Porsche Cayman
Audi RS4
Range Rover Sport
Audi S5
Porsche 997
Porsche Cayenne
Nissan GTR (when it comes out)
BMW M3
Mercedes S Class

All of the above would cost me a small fortune and, I have to wonder, is it really worth it just to have something nice on the drive.

The less pricey options are:
Audi Q7
Nissan 350Z
Audi A5
Mercedes CLK
Mercedes SLK (hairdresser car)
Volkswagen Golf R32
Audi TT
Audi A6 (including all road version)
Mercedes CLS
Mercedes ML

My current thoughts revolve around the Q7 for some reason. The Nissan features in my thoughts a little too simply because of the performance statistics for the money (it matches the Cayman for a lot less money).

Have I missed something? Anyone make any suggestions to help me decide?

Time:9:03 am.
I have been buying a few natural history dvd's recently. Most recently Planet Earth and Blue Planet.

I was fascinated to learn about the Blue Whale though. Apparently the largest creature to have ever existed on earth as far as we are aware. Scary facts are that its heart is the size of a car and some of its arteries are so big a human can swim down them.

Adding to my life list of things to do: See a blue whale in its natural habitat (yeah like its gonna be found in a theme park at 30m long).

Subject:Wii Hunting
Time:3:26 pm.
So my hunt for a wii console continues and frustrating it is too.

I visited a store in Chester where I usually buy my games from and was told I should phone on Wednesday. I couldn't on Wednesday morning due to commitments so phoned as soon as I could at midday. Upon doing so I was told 6 consoles came in and went out that morning. Bah - annoying.

Soooo - I phoned again this morning at half ten only to be told they had 6 again on delivery and I had just missed the last one.

I have tried plenty of other stores to no avail so this one store seems like my best bet but, it seems, by the time I do get a Wii console it will be time for me to go back to work and thus I will not have too much time to play it.

Meh!
