Who's On-Line Now?

Friday, 4 January 2013


Hey Guys,
Sorry I've not been about for a while, I hope you are all well. I've just not felt the need (and often not had the time) to blog. I did warn you that it might happen.
So, it was July that I last posted, what's happened since?
I managed to get to the Olympics once and once only, where I saw a few GB athletes qualify for finals (including Mo Farrah). I also got to see an athlete I've admired for years (for his skill as much as his sex appeal), Roman Sebrle. Unfortunately he pulled out injured while I was there, but it was still great to get to see him in person.
I enjoyed watching the rest of the Olympics and Paralympics and loved how it made me and seemingly the rest of the country feel.

I've got more involved with the Kings Cross Steelers, getting stuck in to my role as Second Team Manager. Initially all seemed to be going well with well over 30 people turning up to training each session, including lots of new starters. Unfortunately many of the players from the Bingham Cup retired, moved away, had work commitments or were injured, so we gradually got fewer and fewer people turning up. Eventually, despite new starters joining all the time, we struggled to get enough players to field two teams each week.  We are only just getting back to a position where we can field 2 teams, 6 months into the season.
I was initially little more than a hanger-on at the start of the season, but now feel like I have contributed to the running of the club and am accepted as part of the team. I also feel like I have some real friends in the club too, no one especially close yet, but some great people.

I am still stuck in the job that I got at the beginning of last year, despite applying for over 40 jobs last year. It is really getting me down and, I believe it may even be making me ill (I've had a throat infection since November). Hopefully something better will come along very soon.

I still don't have a lover on the scene. I've gone through a few crushes, including a major one just before Christmas (including one coffee date with the guy). We'll have to wait and see if it goes anywhere. Grindr and Scruff are subsidising my sexual impulses otherwise (barely).

I've not written anything since I last posted, my creative juices seem to be totally wiped out. I hope it's not a permanent thing. I have however begun to edit on the Marvel Comics Wiki again, working my way up to 6th on the achievement table (with only its administrators above me).

I probably won't be blogging again in the near future, so take care, but if anything major happens I'll try and pop back and let you know.

If I lived in Great Britain, a civilized society that many admire, and they were discussing marriage equality, I sure could think of a thing or two to write about. For starters, the makeup and structure of the British government is still a great mystery to me.

Jeff said...

I don't understand. There has been a lot of coverage of the government in Great Britain here in the U.S. lately. I thought your country was a democracy. How do you explain The House Of Lords?

Best of luck to you.
