Joe: You're a fucking part-timer! Four 4-day weeks in a row.

Me: I've got important things to do on those weekends. And by "important" I mean "your mum."

Joe: Well, what ever tickles your boat, mate.

Me: Is that like whatever floats your fancy?

Joe: Something like that.

Me: That sounds like a fucking danish pastry out at sea!

Joe: You're a weirdo.

Me: Also, The Boat would be a great nickname for my wanger.

Joe: My mum says she's gonna need a bigger boat.

Me: Good luck to her. They don't come much bigger than this!

I was bored at work, testing a returned product for faults and I managed to take this picture somehow. I think it looks cool.

After about a year of trying, my five-a-side footie team final won our league! We have secured promotion into Division 3, and we also got a shiny trophy.

By the way, our team name is Gifted But Lazy

That was the sight that greeted me at 7am yesterday morning. My mate picked me up at 7.30 to go to work. Needless to say we got about 10 miles from work, just before the main road turns into country roads and a truck was sideways across the road.

So, day off work to play in the snow!

I am a huge nerd, but I noticed that this project number was coming up. I've been holding off starting this action request because I wanted this number.

Life has been taking some funny turns of events of late. I have a secure job, which is nice. I have spent so long getting myself to this point, that I have forgotten that I should be trying to make myself happy at the same time. Laur and I broke up about 6 months ago, well, I ended the relationship because I couldn't handle being so far away from her. Looking back, I think I did the right thing as I couldn't make her happy. Now I have found out she is starting something with someone else. I am happy for her, I can say that honestly, and she deserves someone that can make her happy.

I guess I'm struggling to make a point here. I have been really lonely since I moved to Oxford. I have made some really good friends, but I will always feel like an outsider here. I never thought I was the kind of person who defined themselves by the amount of friends he has. Or the kind of person that needs to be in a relationship. Turns out I was wrong on both counts.

I miss having someone I can call up and bitch about how shite my day was, or listen to them tell me about whatever they have been laughing at. I miss having someone to randomly kiss or hug or touch their ass or whatever. I miss going out at the weekend and getting drunk and falling asleep with someone.

2006 was overall a pretty good year for me. Actual things happened, and my life looked like it was going to turn out alright. From May onwards, it just got worse and worse. 2007 isn't shaping up to be anything special either, but we've got 356 days left. You never can tell.

After writing that journal entry yesterday, I got a phone call at about 7.30 last night. The nice woman from the recruitment agency informed me that I had been offered the Design Engineer job in Charlbury, Oxfordshire.

Needless to say, I accepted, most graciously, and ran about like a blue ersed fly trying to organise two people who would be willing to say nice things about me for the purposes of references. Luckily, I know two such people (hard as that is to imagine), and the process of moving begins in earnest, yet again.

I officially start on the 29th of May. OMGWTFBBQ, I actually have a career!

In other news, I signed on the dole for what I hope is the last time! I think I deserve a sandwich, don't you?

Another day of boredom, another day of unemployment. Such is life for Graeme at the moment. For the last few months my days have been filled with sleep, tv and the gym. I never knew how much utter pap the music industry manages to churn out on a daily basis. I've managed to shed some fat and build some actual, real life muscle in the last few weeks.

Last week I was in the England for a job interview. Oxford is a really nice place, and 500 miles of distance improves the weather totally. The interview went well and I should hear by the end of this week what is to happen. Hopefully I shall need to move and I can have my own place again with my own internet and it shall be all lovely.

Alas my time here is at an end. Tomorrow I make my way to the castle of the state and sign a piece of paper that means I get another £90 to last me another fortnight.

I hope you are all well and that life continues to reward you with material goods.

P.S I love the new haircut, Mr. Stplsr!
