I would have thought that, as a Scotchie, you would be quite well aware of the possibilities for deep frying fruit and vegetables.

It was only a very cheap pizza and I scrounged the donut off somebody else.

THE GOOD:

1. Happy with my job(s).
2. I just realised that at 28 i've known my best friends for more than half my life. They often drive me crazy but i'm not the type to stay mad or keep a grudge.
3. My summer holidays are only a few weeks away and i'll be free to sit on my arse and do nothing all day for 3 months (well, apart from #5 below, hopefully). I know i'm gonna get bored out of my head after the first couple of weeks, but i'm still looking forward to it. IT'S WORLD CUP SUMMER EVERYONE!!! WOOHOO!!!
4. I still have a fear of dying/aging but i think about it much much less these days. I see things much more optimistically because of this. It used to be a real mindfuck for me.
5. I feel confident that i will finally start jogging/exercising this summer. I even bought an ipod nano for further motivation. I hate how tired and lazy i feel at only 28 and i hope this newfound desire to release some lactic acid is the kick in the nuts i've been waiting for to start working on the problem i've put in bold below.

THE BAD:

I was gonna do the list thing but then i realised that for me it all boils down to this:

I know the solutions to all my problems yet i choose not to do anything about it.

It all started out of simple laziness but has evolved into a way of life.

& THE UGLY:

Okay:

1) Having recently rediscovered motorcycling, I have realised that I enjoy it more than any other activity in my life, and deeply regret stopping for several years.

2) I have lost all my desire to create or perform music. Whether this is temporary and caused by boredom/lack of co-performers or a more lasting change remains to be seen.

3) Although I have no doubts about my forthcoming marriage, I still find the idea that I might never again sleep with another woman to be extremely strange.

4) My job is going extremely well in the short-term but I know that it is not a career and I am occasionally concerned that I ought to be doing something more fulfilling at this stage in my life. I have several positive character traits and, perhaps fed by a diet of comic books in my formative years, feel that I should perhaps be doing something good for the world.

5) I am perfectly capable of making bold moves, drastic changes and brave choices to pursue my dreams. Unfortunately, I don't have any dreams these days - I seem to just surf along on the waves that life brings me.

6) The great contradiction of my life is that I am extremely demanding of myself yet find sustained effort in any area extremely difficult, thus dooming myself to repeated failure. I cannot break this cycle.

7) I have too many interests to be an expert at any of them.

8) I have very few friends, but tend to keep the ones I have for life.

9) I wasted years trying to be a tough guy, but my life has improved more since I started trying to be a nice guy.

10) I'm not half as clever as some people think I am.

11) I think more people would enjoy eating offal, if only they ate it cooked properly.

1. I know she's the Queen of Deceit and Lies, but dammit, I find Condoleeza Rice sexy.

2. I'm depressed right now. I'm up and down, and I try to focus on the ups, but there are a lot of downs.

3. If your goal is not to be a hypocrite, after awhile you have nothing to say about anything.

4. My son is my best buddy.

5. My county is mismanaged and broke. So if I want to keep my public defender gig, I have to resign myself to working more and getting paid less.

6. I hate represententing fucking crazy people.

7. My son is a nice guy. God, nice guy take a lot of shit from assholes!

8. I'm sick of winter. I want to move to a warmer climate.

9. My daughter's laughter can really pick me up when I'm down. Also, she draws hilarious pictures.

10. On the upside, mainstream comic book are better now than they have ever been.

To be fair, you live in Northampton, where there's a horrendous GP to people ratio. But surely the uni (I still think of it as Nene College) has an in-house set-up?

If not - still no excuse. There's a massive GP practice within 15 minutes brisk walk of Park Campus, which was mine growing up. Listen carefully:

Go out Park Campus through the main exit onto Boughton Green Road. Then go down Yardley Drive. This is the one on the opposite side of the road, between the entrance and exits of the campus, which runs alongside the underground reservoir thingy, which is on the right had side of the road as you walk down it. There's a primary school at the end of it (my old one as it happens).

When you get there, you're on Holly Lodge Drive. Turn left, and go all the way to the bottom of the hill to the traffic lights. Turn right, and cross the road. It's about 200 yards further on, you'll walk past it on your left, before you reach the little service road that leads into it. It's opposite the ambulance station.

If this is too complicated, just turn left out of campus, go all the way down the hill to Kingsthorpe shops (i.e. the Old Five Bells pub, I'm sure you know where that is), then turn right on to A508 Harborough Road and keep going - eventually you'll get to the same traffic lights as mentioned above (just after the BP garage and before the cemetry), only coming from this direction you'll need to keep straight on. This is a bit further, but a simpler route.
As I am right 98% of the time I see no point in quibbling over 3%

6. I am not signed up with a dr and getting signed up is such a fiddle that I've not yet seen anyone.

7. I can still only play Mull of Kintyre and the two 'songs' I have written. They make me happy.

9. At 21, I am also still a virgin.
