Here’s a BlackBerry. Oh, and we’ll need you to go ahead and… work 75% longer hours and most weekends…”). Thankfully it’s very interesting work and I’m enjoying it.

On Car Horns

I recently had a conversation with a friend over Guinness and scotch. Often, at some point in the evening, friends and acquaintances ask me car-related questions. Unfortunately, the conversations seldom go the way they expected.

Diary (XVIII)

Hullo.

Simply writing a note to let people know I’m still indeed alive.
