    Only the 19 hours (will be 22 hours today) of overwork need to be used before the end of March.

    I don't have a high opinion of smart watches. I prefer manual/automatic pilot/navigator style watches. The only Rolex I#d seriously consider is a Milgauss.

    I need a new watch.

    My Dad was reading genuine sad comments from a popular newspaper's website regarding Father's Day aloud.

    When he finished he pointed to his chest and said:

    'What you're looking at here is f*****g normality boy'.

    Respect to good dads everywhere.

    Watched it at the weekend, brilliant film. Normally I find movie adaptions of comics with their inevitable changes to be annoying but Michael Rooker as Yondu with his mystical Yaka Arrow transformed into an Iain M. Banks style knife missile worked really well.

    I just watched "Wolf Children" (2012) and I literally cried in the end. This was one of the best animated films I've EVER seen! I want to be a wolf!!!

    "A thread for whatever is happening or is going through your head at the moment.. "

    I recently just packed all my books up from childhood up until what I had read last week and as I was going through each book picking its section in the boxes I realised that every time I picked one up it felt like I was popping in for a cup of tea with the main characters and the world they live in. Suddenly their entire story would become clear in my head and I felt like I had never stopped reading it.

    I wonder often whether this is just my imagination gone wild or whether i'm actually crazy? Or you never know this might be normal (which would be the first time anyone had described me as normal. What do you think?

    A few people I know have recently acquired awful tattoos of the heavy black ink sleeve variety, this appears to be a trend. Is it because ubiquity makes it harder to stand out?
