Old Friend

RIP: Steve Irwin

I know some of you enjoyed him so I'll hold back my own feelings that he was a bit of a dick and just pass you the news.

Steve Irwin (Australian Wildlife Expert and TV Host) was killed filming in the early hours of this morning by a Stingray in Australia. There's no good way to go but atleast he died doing something he obviously loved.

I've never watched hardly any of his shows, mainly because I generally avoid most TV and also because his way of presenting got on my nerves (I'm much more of a fan of the David Attenburgh way of presenting), but I know he was very popular and obviously git a lot of kids interested in wildlife.

Anyway, RIP Steve Irwin. May there be many dangerous creatures roaming the afterlife for you to explore and play with.

Oh yeah...

I was up at the silly hour of 6.30am this morning with the intent of going to the gym before work.

Well one thing or another meant that I didn't go today and just ended up coming into work really early. It means I can get a load of things done before the rest of the staff turn up and the phone starts ringing though so that's good. It also means I can escape an hour or so early this evening as I'm meeting a friend in London for drinks tonight.

The 'Return To The Gym' starts on Wednesday I reckon. I have Wednesday off and could do with having a really good work out first thing in the morning to wake me up and make me feel really active and 'get things done' for the rest of the day. The Gym's odd like that. The harder I push myself the more awake I feel for the rest of the day. Go figure.

Being in early is also good because it's allowing me to play some old New Model Army CDs nice and loud and they always serve to motivate me too :)

Irwin Death Humour

It continually amazes me how quickly the jokes start circulating after major accidents or deaths.

Still, may be in bad taste, but I found it vaguely amusing...
