Following on from yesterday

That CD of pod casts I was telling you about is actually dangerous. I listened to some more of it last night on the way back up the motorway, and I nearly crashed the car I was laughing so hard. I had tears in my eyes and was struggling to breathe. Good Lord it was funny. Some of the funniest bits were when Steve Marchant was reading out excerts from Karl Pilkingtons diary... Jebus, I was in stitches, especially when you hear Ricky Gervais pi$$ing himself in the background too.
The downside is, I've listened to all three CDs now, so no more mirth (shit it). I have subscribed to the pod casts on my iTunes, so we'll see how that goes, but I think I will have to take a trip to a book shop and see what other comedy CDs I can find. I've already got the Mighty Boosh (which is good) but I'll see what else I can get hold of. For the next couple of journeys I will be accompanied by Christopher Lee reading "Children Of Hurin" by J.R.R Tolkein. A complete mood change from Ricky Gervais et. al. but I do enjoy the J.R.R Tolkein books and the first few chapters of this, especially being read by 'The voice of doom' that is Christopher Lee, have been really good.

Still no work to do. I will be having a meeting / chat with my boss this morning, and I'm going to express my concerns for my job... I mean, it can't be good that I'm being paid to do this little, right?? We'll see how that goes.

Finally - soundtrack of the day today is the new album by The Arctic Monkeys, "Humbug", which I downloaded last night on iTunes. I'll let you know what it's like.

Mate can you send me a link to the podcasts so I can get on board?

I'm not sure about a link - google it! As I said, I subscribed via iTunes. If you go to iTunes and go to Podcasts you should be able to find it. Here's a link to the CD I've got...
