Here's a rather lovely picture of me by TheFelineAnarchist: :oD

This is me in human form, and mashed by devilstick:

And again:

laa laa laa what to say... I'm a 24 year old mongrel, kinda Welsh, English and Scottish and a tad Texan.

I live down in Kent now after much moving around where I work doing webby stuff finally - Yay!

You might be finding me in such places as around the Wells of Tunbridge, and the Reading Festival '07 which we just snaffled some early-sale tickets for! Here's a rather nice picture from a previous fesival where I encountered Tony Blair doing a trolly-jump

This house is full of monkeys, here's two of them:

What Is Your Battle Cry?

Lo! Who is that, rampaging through the plains! It is MrMoose, hands clutching two hardened pitas! And with an ominous scream, his voice cometh:

"I'm going to fuck you until I am off parole!!"

Find out!

» Best Graffiti Ever

more shameless Ucking
Down here in Kent there is a town called Uckfield, named after the river that runs past it. It's the only place I've ever seen a non-rectangular river name-sign to avoid graffiti, it's shaped thusly:

» Have you ever started a fire?

In uni halls
the fire alarm would go off several times a week, and when it went off in one house it set off the alarms in the two either side. Unfortunately for our house, which had never set it off, we were in the middle of the two worst houses for false alarms (smoking in rooms and stuff).

So of course one day when the alarm went off I casually finished my phone-call, put on some shoes, went looking for my jumper then heard my mate shouting "The place is on fire!", assuming he was taking the piss because of how often the alarm sounds I carried on looking for my jumper.

Upon opening my door though I was met with a wall of nasty plastic smoke, none of which had come through up to then. I wandered down to the kitchen to find the two guys who were in planning to run in to grab the fire extiguisher, it seemed, with what little we could actually see that the toaster was on fire. Anders the Danish guy ran in, got the extinguisher and sprayed it a couple of times, then we had to leave it until the fire brigade arrived.

After sitting in the car keeping warm (whilst all the people from the other houses that normally set it off froze) for a while we were allowed back in to our very black and very damp kitchen, the only damage being one destroyed cupboard and of course the toaster.

Here's a pic of it, I can't believe how much black smoke came off such a small thing, but almost all the plastic had gone off it. The black bit of wall is where the cupboard was.

Cause of fire was probably an electrical fault as no-one had been in for about 2 hours. The cupboard belonged to the owner of the toaster who wasn't in, we left it outside for her return with a post-it note on identifying it as hers :)

» And that's the thanks I got

Working for an extremely low wage in my field, I get past the 3-month intro to be told I'm the first person in a long time to make it that far... I work my arse off every day, gradually taking on more and more work, answering the phone more, while everyone else goes out for lunch and leaves me manning the place...

Few months later and I am responsible for the checking of 30 companies servers every month, amongst answering the phone and being expected to chip in on 1/3rd of the other Techy work (there were 3 of us)... I go away for a weeks holiday and come back to find NONE of the server checks have been done, yet I'm still expected to chip in 1/3rd of the other work and answer the phones all the time...

Best bit about it? A week after returning, while things are starting to settle down again, I'm sacked. Sacked for not noticing that the backup had been failing for 2 weeks... starting from after I had gone away. I hadn't even been told it was my responsibility to check the backup until that point!

That's what you get for a small-time company trying to be the IT department for 30 much larger companies. I now work 3 doors down, make faaar more money and have a much less stressful and more interesting life.

So no thanks for the lack of appreciation, but by the time I got home the day I got sacked I was happier than ever for being forced to realise how shit they were.
