360-less

Filed under: Posts about me — lentini @ 5:59 pm

My XBox360 has been playing up lately giving me ‘dirty disc’ errors all the time. Very frustrating when playing Hitman, especially if I got towards the end of the level. Confirmed the fault today when I finally got round to buying Rockstar’s Table Tennis and the fault happened again. Phoned Microsoft and it’s going back for a repair/replacement so no gaming for me for a while 😦

Lostprophets signing…..

Filed under: Lostprophets, Posts about me — lentini @ 7:29 pm

Not long got back from the signing in Cardiff. Nearly didn’t make it, stupid work made me go to Templecombe in Somerset then up to Gloucester. Thanks to my ‘increased’ speed (I don’t condone speeding in any way blah blah…) I managed to make good time. Called back home at about 2:50pm, got changed and made my way down to Cardiff. Got there about 3:25pm and there was already a crowd gathering outside, lounging about in the lovely afternoon sun. Felt a bit out of place when I got there, the queue was full of young teenagers in dodgy eye-makeup and B.O.

After baking in the sun for almost 2 hours, they finally opened the doors at 5pm. The queue by this time was massive. Having a chat to the security guy just before I went in, he mentioned there would be no photos allowed inside and if I did my camera would be taken from me and smashed up…(!) Something about them only wanting the press to take their photos.

Anyways, got my stuff signed (forgot FakeSoundOfProgress though) and had a bit of a talk with Ian and Jamie so I’m happy 🙂

Death in the family…

Had a phone call from my mother earlier, the mouse has died. Poor thing, I was really hoping he’d survive…. 😦

Mickey

Filed under: Posts about me — lentini @ 7:48 am

Having a bit of a snooze last night before the missus came home and I was rudely awoken by one of my cats meeowing quite loudly. Looked at what all the fuss was about and found he’d brought in a mouse. Scarpered into the kitchen to get it off him, when I did I found the mouse in a bad way. It was breathing heavily, shaking like mad and looked like it had a broken back. I didn’t know what to do at this point….I couldn’t bring myself to put it out of its misery and couldn’t put it back outside to die so I just looked at it until the missus came home. Eventually the mouse started to come around and began walking a bit. Its front leg was definitely fucked but it seemed to be able to move about with a bit of a struggle. Owning two cats we don’t really have anywhere to keep it so we put it in a shoebox (Karen even wrote ‘Mickey’s House on the lid…weird cow), left some water and sunflower seeds and left it in the bath and made sure we’d close the door properly.

Checked on it this morning when I got up and it’s still alive. Looks a bit sorry for itself at the moment but it’s eating and shitting OK and seems to be able to move about a bit better. Gonna have to take it up my mothers house for her to look after when we’re not here.

Update

Filed under: Lostprophets, Posts about me — lentini @ 2:56 pm

Been eating healthily for about 3 weeks now and I haven’t lost any bloody weight! I actually got up off my arse and went to the gym all last week (bought a months pass, 30 quid!), did a bit of cardio on the running machines, bit of weights, 100 sit-ups a session….still 14st 7lbs 😡 Even went for 2 hours on Saturday morning, even though I felt like crap. Suffering for it now though, feels like I’ve pulled a muscle in my chest and back and my hamstrings feel very tight. Gonna lay of the gym until my body fully recovers….

Forgot to add, me and the missus went to TGI Fridays on Saturday for a spot of food and drink and saw Ian Watkins off of Lostprophets. I was really dying to go and have a bit of a chat with him but he was with his girlfriend (I think) so I didn’t want to hassle them. Takes my pathetic celeb-spotting tally up to 4:

Ian Watkins (Lostprophets) – (3 times) Once in the next street, once in the Spar by my house, once in TGI’s
Kelly Jones (Stereophonics) – Buying a TV in Currys near my house
Joe Calzhage (that boxer type) – Driving his Merc (No. plate – BOX 1M) down the A470
Richard Keys (Sky Sports) – Walking back to his car from Old Trafford

Talking of the Lostprophets, got the new album today Liberation Transmission. Been listening to it for a while thanks to teh intarweb (I don’t condone piracy in any way blah blah…) and it’s really grown on me and it’s my favourite album of the three.

Pre-ordered it originally from CDWOW but I then found out they’re doing a signing in Virgin on Tuesday. You needed to buy the album from 9am today to get a wristband to gain access to the signing so I left early and made my way into Cardiff to make sure I was there at 8am. As I was walking down the street I’d noticed they’d opened early(!) and my heart sank. I felt gutted but when I got to the tills I’d noticed they’d still had some left. Got a free poster too, gonna get that signed as well as my other 3 album covers. Post pics and stuff tomorrow night.
