When I say shotgun, you say wedding. Shotgun....Wedding.

So, he got fired today.

Just after 1pm, our current Business Manager was called into JB's office with Third Time Lucky. Not 20 minutes later, he was off out the door, never to return. Except maybe to clear his desk. Already Third Time Lucky has been told he's seeking legal advice. I don't think it's gonna get him anywhere, he's been a very naughty boy.

What is about guys who can any kind of D.I.Y.? How come most of them can pick up a hammer, a screw driver, a drill, nails, screws, chisels, whatever and 'make good' whatever is wrong. Not only that, but they seem to have a cunning knack to be able to improve things. I just don't get it. I can barely botch my way through even the simplest of tasks.
Yep, when God (or whoever it was) made guys and injected them with D.I.Y. competency skills, he kinda missed me out. I think I must have got a double dose of 'being in touch with your feminine side' instead.
Thus, tonight I am faced with a skirting board half hanging off, the wrong size nails and several useless pieces that looked perfect when I was cutting them to size. And I've broken a fucking nail!

Loving, loving, loving the Panic At The Disco album. How the hell did I let this one slip through for so long. It's an absolute gem.

Most recent 'Anonymous' phone call to my mobile was this morning, just after 4 am. Who the hell is awake at 4am, never mind awake enough to make an anonymous call!

The track listing for The Killers new album is still baffling me. It even feels like it's in the wrong order.
My next gig is Embrace in just over 2 weeks time. I can't wait, although I need to give their latest album another few listens as no doubt they will be plugging that to death. The last time I saw them play, Danny, the lead singer jumped down from the stage, climbed up the crush barriers right in front of me and held onto my hand to keep his balance. How amazing is that! I can remember the moment well, but do you think I can remember which song he sung? Can I fuck!

It's way past my bedtime and I have long hours tomorrow. Oh joy. We also get to meet the new Business Manager. How convenient!

In other news, I've started to eat breakfast.
Little steps, huh.

That whole thing about DIY & femimine side?
I'm so with you on that!

I'm also slighty perplexed at Sam's town's running order. That said, I'm right enjoying it.

I dream of meeting a man who can do DIY. Sadly, they seem to be few and far between and given that I'm too useless to be able to even set the video, it's a good job there aren't too many tasks needing done in the Cathouse.

I got the Jet album today BTW. But I'm on a proper nostalgia trip at the mo and listening to all my old student tunes so haven't played it yet. It's on the iPod though.

(Ooh, word verification - CATGB. Must have known I was coming.)

flash,
Welcome and hello.
Indeed, The Killers running order appears to a little bit of a mystery. Despite this 'formality', I too am enjoying the album.

cat,
It could be worse, you could be with a guy who thinks he's blessed with the D.I.Y. competancy gene, but is however....crap. Worse still, he doesn't realize it himself.
At least I can recognize my limits.
Lemme know what you think of Jet.
