He didn't get where he is today by stealing somebody else's catchphrase.


Fed up with sitting around and waiting for things to get better, I went back to work today. It was a gratifying experience. As a manager you don't expect to be missed, but I was. People were genuinely concerned, given that I'm one of those people that just never seems to take time off. However, after just a few days I was climbing the walls and wanted some normality. Whilst the damage was to the cartilage in my knee, it seems to be repairing - I'm about 75% there. Oddly enough I can now run, but stairs are a bit awkward. Give it another day or two and I'm sure things will be fine.

I bought a copy of Warcraft about a week before going ill, which cost me the royal sum of a tenner. It's been the best tenner I've spent in ages. Whilst I wouldn't normally play online games, a bit of curiosity never did any harm - and as it happens, it was just what the doctor forgot to order, alleviating my boredom whilst I was stuck at home. What I did find disconcerting, however, was the amount of time the average player seems to spend on there. I mean, I'm at home because I can't work, but what about all these other people - don't they have jobs? How can they play for twelve hours a day? Do they eat? Do they sleep? Surely the World of Warcraft can't be totally filled with people on sickies?

Maybe they're all just bunking off school.

You also might have noticed that the site has changed again - another product of being sat on a sofa for far too long.
