Living out in the sticks, you don't really get much coverage in the national newspapers - other than sometimes when we have the Atherstone Ball Game, which still year falls on Tuesday 8th March 2011. However I did come across a story that has been featured on the BBC News website, Daily Mail's website and a few others. It's not of Atherstone, but the town next door to us, Nuneaton. It features a lad going to the local KFC drive-thru window and when it opens he chucks in a real chicken. Obviously the RSPCA are a bit pissed off about... []

It's now been a week and a half since I had my operation and I thought I might update you all on how I feel.

Well - as crude as it sounds - I was only able to start pooping Tuesday just gone (24th August 2010) and that hasn't returned to normal yet (if you get what I mean). Passing liquids is fine afer the cafater, though they've became irregular - like one moment I'd be fine, then would need to pee like Niagra Falls.

Pain-wise, that's not too bad. Actually, I think it didn't hurt as much as they first put... []

The time had finally came last week. Tuesday approached and I was starting to get very nervous - so I said goodbye to my friends and family and they wished me the best of luck. However halfway through the day, what goes and happens? Yes, you guessed it... the hospital phoned up and said the operation is cancelled due to lack of bed space - now this is the day BEFORE the operation, you can imagine how pissed off I was, but just as I was about to crack open a beer and chill out they phoned straight back up...

Sorry, for the lack of updates on the site - I've only just got my internet back on.

Right, finally after loads of constant knock-backs my operation is finally going ahead. I had my Pre-Op assessment on Thursday - which included a few other tests including MRSA testing, ECG test (which they incorrectly put me down as Female), blood test and then an XRay. Friday was the day for my MRI Scan - which was a weird experience and now tomorrow is the main day. Talk about getting nervous ... ... ... I'm in at 8am and I think the operation... []

Due to upcoming events in less than 2 weeks, sods law always states that dates always clash... and yes, they have. My operation is on the 21st April 2010 and this audition is for the following Saturday (24th April 2010) ... grrrr! Oh well, always got next year...

Well it still seems that Hotpoint WIXXE127 is the hottest trend on Twitter at the moment... and along with the thousands of other people and other blogs, I have no idea why either... until I've now came across that I think it's because of a ?70-off discount code that's for the Hotpoint WIXXE127 Washing Machine at Comet.

The code is valid until tomorrow (31st March 2010) and is: WIXXE250

So now the problem is solved... lets hope a better and more productive trend will top the chart tomorrow.

Well it's been about a week or so now since everywhere - except the top of the mountains - in Britain got fully released on Google StreetView ... about time too! I was only waiting because I wanted to find myself on there, well I did ... he he ... here's a picture of me.

Anyways... whilst looking through some random streets I used to walk down in Blackpool, I ended up stumbling across something quite funny ... a group of Superheroes ... there's Action Man, Dracula, Superman, Wolverine, Bananaman, Peter Pan, Batman and Robin ... then further down... []

To begin with we need to make a menu, which I've just done a quick temporary 5 items in mine using the HTML lists tags.

<menutitle>Main</menutitle> <ul id="menu"> <li><a href="#">Item 1</a></li> <li><a href="#">Item 2</a></li> <li><a href="#">Item 3</a></li> <li><a href="#">Item 4</a></li> <li><a href="#">Item 5</a></li> </ul>

Then in the header of your page, you will need to call your jQuery file.

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>

Now beneath the line where you're calling your jQuery from, you will need to write some more JavaScript to tell the document to run the later bit of code when the document has loaded.

<script type="text/javascript"> $(document).ready(function(){ }); </script>

Now the document is ready for your jQuery code, we need to... []

Shrove Tuesday in Atherstone saw another game of the yearly Atherstone Ball Game. Roughly 901 years old now, this game begins with large crowds gathering in the main street (Long St) and await the huge ball to be thrown out of Barclay's Bank window. Once it's thrown out the people in the street boot the ball up and down the street for about an hour and a half, then once that time is up the mayhem erupts and everyone goes for the... []

Myself, my Mother and my Sister left for Nottingham on Saturday night (13th February 2010) for a night ghost hunting at Nottingham's Galleries of Justice. We left Atherstone around 5pm and got to Nottingham fairly quickly... however when we did arrive at Nottingham we had never seen a city centres travel routes so messed up! One way systems, tram lanes, confusing bus lanes, no entry signs and also the usual fecking "Diversion" signs... so after arriving, it did take us 2 hours going around the city centre before giving up and just parking in a car park and just walking...
