Well a quick blabbering about crap on here can't hurt. I think I will show my current lazy state by using bullet points, just think of it as a mental splurge powerpoint presentation.

  • First week back at work and my sleep pattern is somewhere towards normal now
  • Car part I ordered on the 29th of December has still not turned up due to ordering just before new years and after that it snowed like a bugger so still no post.
  • Not sure whether I'm going to get to have a fettle with the car tomorrow due to crappy conditions and fear of losing my fingers working in a freezing garage with no heating.
  • Most of my week has consisted of shooting zombies.
And now for a quick rant.

Had to drive in the snow on Tuesday evening and it still amazes me the amount of people wheelspinning about and then braking for roundabouts and such in their normal matter completely forgetting that they're on ice. It's not hard is it? Just pull away gently with plenty of clutch, if that still doesn't work pull off in 2nd gear and when you need to come to a stop just let the car gradually slow down itself well in advance and only use the brakes when you are nearly stopped.

I'm getting fecked off by the fact that nobody behind the wheel of a car here seems to have a brain. A Mondeo almost slid out of a side road right infront of me due to the driver being too thick to realise that he was on ice, he then proceeds to boot it once on the non icey road and tailgate me. Firstly you're a prick for almost causing an accident and then not realising that everything surrounding the road is covered in snow and the fact the temperature still hasn't risen above freezing means there's a chuffing good chance that there will be some ice on the road and as it's dark you won't bloody see it! So if you can't stop for a cocking main road that you know you're about to get to what chance do you have of stopping if I have to brake and you're about a foot away from my cocking bumper. I've been caught out by an icy corner before in the dark when the rest of the road seemed clear and you're left with sod all control over the car, you just become a passenger until you're bouncing off the hedge. Drive slower, it's much more pleasant then pulling bits of hedge out of your car before limping home.

......and I'm done.
