Hello fans.

Ten days since the last post, and as you can see my bed times are not getting any earlier.

I can't believe I've actually got a comment. Carol - I would not have posted this if it weren't for you!

In response to your question, I had Chicken Tikka, with rice, a poppadom and mango chutney. It was tasty, but the portions were quite small. Not particularly traditional English food, but I think curry has been voted the nations favorite dish.

Here's the pub we went to.

Not much else has happened in the world of Rob. Well a few things have, but I can't be bothered to talk about them.

I'm going to bed anyway...

I love you all,

Early start.

Hello fans.

I met up with my old work mate Andy today. You may remember him, he drew this! I met him outside work, and we had lunch in a pub. It was really cool seeing him again as the last time I arranged to meet him, I overslept and he had already ordered his food by the time I phoned him. He had to eat by himself - What a loner!

Hmm. Maybe this blog isn't for an 'unknown audience' after all, maybe it's for me!

I love you all,


P.S. I've noticed the spammers don't even bother to comment on my posts any more.

I can't think of a title.

Hello fans.

I've actually done quite a lot today. Compared to normal that is!

I started messing around on Flash, with the hope of animating a character I've drawn. Hopefully he will be able to 'lip-sync' to some words of my choosing.

I watched a free tutorial at There are a load of links on the right. I watched the Lip Syncing (Macrochat). The cool thing about this guy (apart from being a pretty cool animator) is he lets ordinary folk watch it for free. He's giving back, because he learnt from people who did the same. Cool. That's what I love about the internet! Maybe I'll be good enough one day to pass on my know how. I'll keep you posted!

I love you all,

Prove it!

Hello fans.

I don't think I told you that I've got a date for the operation on my wrist. It will be on the 24th March 2006!

I've got mixed feelings about it. I'm not too worried about the operation itself, it's the fact that I will have to have my arm in plaster for ages. The Doctor said it would be 3 months, and I've read online that it can be an average of 6!

I'm going for a pre-op assessment on the 9th, and I should find a bit more information then.

I'm hoping it will be a lot less than 3 months even, but we'll have to wait and see.

Actually my real hope is that God will 'do a miracle' on it, and I won't need any treatment at all. So far there's no sign of this, but I can always live in hope... Go on God - PROVE YOURSELF!

I love you all,

Life choices.

Hello fans.

I really must do something with my life.

I've been stuck in a rut for ages, and I think my biggest problem is procrastination. If I could remove that, and sort out my attitude to life, I believe I could do something amazing.

I'm not short of ideas. I just can't be bothered. Sad really...

Leave a comment if you've got any advice.


P.S. I love these drawings. Check them out!

Vomit inducing gas cloud.

Hello fans.

I'm so sorry I haven't posted for a couple of days.

Here is a lovely story to make up for it:

I have two cats, and one of them is very nervous. She doesn't like being picked up or stroked, and always runs off.

Today while I was watching TV, she sat down in front of me and I decided to pick her up. After a couple of seconds holding her, she escaped my grasp and ran off.

It was then I smelt it. My cat had farted. Had her nerves got the better of her, or was it part of her natural defense mechanism? The honest truth is I just don't know.

Whatever the answer is, I do know that I will think twice before picking her up again... I nearly had to leave the room. It was that bad.

My Mum said that it served me right.

Check back tomorrow for more 'laughs'.


P.S. Sorry for the quality of this post.

*Today is my first Xceler-versary. This time last year, I was tucked up in bed, starting my first nights sleep in Manchester on the 5 month Xcelerate course. I can't believe it's only a year ago. It feels like two. That's why I was texting the Xcelerators!
