New Job and Cruising The Med

Another four weeks flies by without a chance to breathe – madness – just where has 2010 gone?? Its been over a year since I started writing these blog things on here and although they have turned more into a diary rather than a review on stuff, I think the reviewing on www.culturedeluxe.com goes a bit of way to making up for it. Haha. Christmas is less than two weeks away and this time last year we had just had the offer accepted on our house. Now we have our first Christmas tree up and decorated (only as of yesterday though) and I have all my presents bought and ready to be wrapped – am I organised or what!!

New Year, New Start

I suppose the biggest news for me this time around is that I have got myself a new job… Came a bit out of the blue with the interview and the offer within the space of a few days but Im really pleased and excited to start the role next year. Its back doing something similar to what I used to do in surveying as an estimator for a flooring company. Its less than 15 mins drive from my place so there goes my horror 1 hour each way journey to work too. Just with that I will be able to have an extra seven hours to myself each week that I would have spent driving! Brilliant. It will be a shame to leave all my friends at my current job behind but I have kept in touch with people from previous jobs and I would expect it to be the same here. So all in all a great way to start 2011…. But not the best way…… that would have to be………

If It Is Called Titanic We’re Screwed!!

One good thing about leaving the company I am at now means that I am able to start a couple of weeks later which is handy as I wouldn’t have been able to go on a cruise. We are being taken away by Laras dad on a Mediterranean cruise to a few countries that I am so excited about its silly! It starts in Barcelona and heads off to Egypt, Italy and Greece I think and sounds right up my street with all the things this ship has on it. 14 restaurants, casino, gym, swimming pool and a load of other things too. I have never been on a cruise before so I am not sure of what to expect, but Im sure it will be amazing. Watch this space….

Fringe = Brilliant

As LOST has now finished there needed to be a gap filler when it came to TV shows. There are the odd ones that come along and you watch here and there but there has to be something special to grab you by the kahoonas and have you waiting for the next episode to air. Fringe is now on its third series and it is just getting better and better each year. We have been watching this since the start and each time a series ends (of half a season as they keep having month long breaks with this one) we wonder how they will keep this story evolving, but they always deliver and then some! Its hard to explain the premise of the show without giving too much away but for those of you who have watched it, you know what I mean. This show keeps you so interested in everything, the characters, the plot, just everything. Brilliant. Have a watch from the start if you get a chance.

Other than that I hope everyone watched An Idiot Abroad which was just fantastic. I have also listened to a few new albums lately. Take That – Progress. Fairly decent although some of the songs can get a bit boring but overall a decent listen, Underground Machine and The Flood are my favourite songs on there though. But…. My favourite album by far this year is the new album by Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. That is amazing. Yes I know that Kanye West is a complete and utter tool but he sure does know how to create music. The lyrics are sharp, the guest appearances are amazing, especially Jay –Z and the beats and music are just incredible from start to finish. I love almost every song on here with Monster and Runaway being stand outs. Awesome. Put the hatred for the man aside and sit back and listen to a genius at work.

That will just about do me for today, so if I don’t write before then I hope that everyone has a brilliant Christmas and New Year. Happy 2010 and here’s to 2011. Don’t forget to follow me on twitter if you don’t already @FuzzyCoyote and.

Take it easy… G
