Mr. Forgetful

Mr. Forgetful wouldn’t be my first choice if someone asked me to choose the Mr. Men character I would like to be compared to. However recently my forgetfulness has become worse than ever and the consequences of this have started to infuriate me greatly.

I have always lost things throughout my life, coming home from school without a jumper, leaving a bag on the train or a beer at the bar.

Recently (like this morning) I managed to ‘lose’ my mobile phone. I was half way to work when I realised I didn’t have it so re-traced my steps which took me to my bedroom. I then got so annoyed because I couldn’t find it anywhere. Each of my possessions was carefully examined and moved military style from one side of the room to the other. Still no joy, then I look down the road, nothing. I would ring it – but I leave it on silent normally to avoid any late night drunken calls… Eventually I find it, tucked against the side of the bed under the valence.

Recently I have lost a film (containing some good photos), keys (multiple times), headphones (since found)… and left items scattered around the country at friend’s houses.

Maybe I should buy that book that is always in the small ads in most newspapers each week – with claims like “Remember EVERY person youve EVER met…” – (it’s called Adventures in Memory by the way – freephone 0800 298 7070!) Might not help with losing keys though.

Another week….

After a wicked weekend (Friday @ movement – Saturday spent loafing around Notting Hill, chiling, drinking Brazilian beer (Brahma) at the Art’s Club listening to some nice acoustic guitar by a geezer from New York. Then mixing in Reading and a few hours at the Fez Club. Sunday was spent drinking some quality Apple Strudel vodka cocktails in Revolution (the only decent bar in Reading and it’s a chain bar – oh well… nice sofas)

First impressions of my digital camera are very positive! It’s great to be able to plug straight into computer and upload photos, also taking a lot more photos because I can really! And the memory card can hold 250 photos at the best resolution. One thing I didnt realise was that you can also record 30 second films on them – watch this space for some of those being posted up (Broadband users only 😉

I was quite disturbed to read this last night – looks like we only have a month to live before we are all going to drown. On a cheerier note – this latest production from the rathergood people is worth a look.


The Internet Book List is trying to be the ultimate book reference on the net, in the same way that the iMDB is for films. Seems a little empty at the moment but it only started this year so worth giving it a chance to grow…

Of course if you want to buy books – you could do worse than use bookbrain , a comparision website which searches multiple UK online book stores and returns the best price – very useful to save a few quid.

As I mentioned last week – use bookcrossing and free your finished books from a life stuck on your bookshelf!….
