|Back from my holidays...

...and back to work.
Ah well, I've spent enough money in the last few weeks to warrant the need to make the money back. I'm buying an iRiver HP-120 media player soon, which is £150 out of my pocket, plus I'm supposed to be saving up for a car, or at least, I plan to ;)
Anyhow, work was slow, it was slow because this week has been so slow, people have been trying to desperately find things to do; I turned up to work today to find that my normal job had already been done by someone else, leaving me a bit lost. In the end I was shifting stuff around the store, boring gruntwork, but to be honest, it was made worse by the fact that it felt like I didn't have to be there.
But the holiday was pretty good; spent a week in France, half of which was stormy, but it wasn't that bad, and spent another week in Yorkshire at my uncles, visiting a friend coming from Ibiza, I coudl only see her for 1 day, but it was a good day, and I had some fun, plus I found things to do for the rest of the week.
Oh, plus when I got back I found that my store was offering an extra 10% off on top of our employee discount, so I bought Full Spectrum Warrior and Sonic Advance 3, both sweet games in their own right. FSW gets extra kudos for being something difference compared to other army games, which are generally FPS or RTS territory. Sonic Advance 3 is just a damned good Sonic game, wehich I haven't played in a long time since their 'advance' to 3D :P
On another note, the Monmouth Music Festival has been on this week, last night it was the Battle Of The Bands, which meant some pretty crappy music, but one gem shone through in the shape of Adequate 7. You should check out their website, no really, you should. Tonight was a bit different, as it was Blues night. It was good, in more of an amusing way than anything else; we couldn't understand the main singer/bongos player, but the way he moved was... amusing, as he thrusted at his bongos, hunched his shoulders, danced on the table, and generally had trouble standing up, to be honest, we think he was drunk, but at least he provided us with some decent entertainment ;)
Anyhow, that's it for tonight, sleep well all ;)
Glad to be home...
