Southwest Airlines are idiots

Posted by Rob March 10, 2010, under Nothing Much, Personal | 2 Comments

Almost everyone has heard about the controversy surrounding the Kevin Smith/South West Airlines debacle but just in case you haven’t, here’s the skinny: Kevin Smith (a large lad) had booked two seats on a South West flight – he changed his flight and SWA seated him in a single (because there wasn’t space) and then [...]

Helpless Hairballs

Posted by Rob July 27, 2009, under Nothing Much, Personal | 1 Comment

Today has been a bit of a mixed feeling day really. We live in a complex and (as with most places) some people who live here are not as nice as others. Some of the more unsavoury sort moved out about a week ago and left three little kittens behind. The cats can’t be more [...]

Passion

I’d love to say I’ve been motivated to post by my own drives and desires or even that it’s out of a loyalty to the tens of readers of my blog. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Well, some things could but they’d really have to involve the FBI and what really happened [...]

I have 28 books to read

Posted by Rob July 15, 2009, under Nothing Much, Personal | 1 Comment

And that’s actually a good thing I’ve figured out that I have 28 books that I want to read in the next little while. It makes me very happy that I have an unbroken line of stuff to dig into. In case anyone cares, they are: Soul of the Fire (Terry Goodkind) 6 more Terry [...]

So probably no house…

Posted by Rob July 15, 2009, under Nothing Much, Personal | No Comments

So it turns out that what with the economy, our financial position and generally the bank’s skittish way of dealing with people (requiring a 10,20 or even 30% deposit) the chances are good we won’t be getting a house. All is not lost – we do have an offer in for one so we’ll see [...]

I was bad.

Posted by Rob July 13, 2009, under Nothing Much, Personal | No Comments

So yes, I haven’t uploaded a blog in a few days. I did draft them, promise – I just haven’t had anything that I think needs publishing. So counts! Anyhoo, the time has been used productively. I have another client and I have ideas for three new sites. Woo! Anyone know a tame lawyer?

It’s going to be a bad month.

Time to stock up on the noodles, blow dust off the DVD player and invest in some tighter belts. So far my car has blown her head gasket, my wife’s car is making death rattle noises, my cell phone turns itself off every five minutes and we’ve got to choke out around sixteen grand to [...]

Rugby goodness.

Posted by Rob July 5, 2009, under Nothing Much, Personal, South Africa | No Comments

I watched Rugby yesterday and (very surprisingly) I enjoyed it. Anyone who actually knows me knows I am certainly not a sports fan. In fact, I’d go so far as to say I’m not a fan of most sport. But actually watching the game yesterday (RSA vs Lions) was pretty cool. Despite the fact that [...]

The car is fixed. Is it bollocks.

Posted by Rob July 5, 2009, under Nothing Much, Personal | 1 Comment

Fek. Arse. Shit. Balls. The car is not fixed. The bloody head gasket blew so now I’m way back at square one faced with the horrible certainty of a lighter wallet. Not only that – I have to make a decision. Do I attempt some self-repair (cheaper, may not work) or take her in to [...]

Aargh. Fek. Tired.

Been to a braai. Fun times but oy, what a night. I’m very tired now and have a long day of fiddling to look forward to tomorrow. Oy indeed.
