I know I can claim the mileage back, but I hate coming to the city centre. It's just a pain in the arse. #BristolThem: I need this fixing. Me: OK, I'll be down tomorrow morning. So I go to the place. There's no one here to let me in. Brilliant.

Retweeted by Grumpy Technician.Dear majority of YouTube product reviewers. A couple of things to note. 1. Speak clearly. 2. Buy a f***ing tripod. That is all.We got a new apprentice today. His name is Dave. He smells. The kind of smell that strips paint and curdles milk. #modernapprenticeshipsDespite my best intentions, I did not ride my bike to work today. #bikefailure #carwinRussia's ban on swearing in books, films, music, theatre and blogs comes into effect today.

@Gordon_Keenan Reality is a bitch, but it's the only one we've got, so get interested... this is it.@Gordon_Keenan Absolutely... it's important to let young people make mistakes, because they know everything, and won't be told anything.@Gordon_Keenan Sure is, and all these art students want to go out and make money from making art. I haven't the heart to tell them...@Gordon_Keenan I'll just tell them to abandon all ambition at the door of McDonalds, then hand them an application form. Here is your futureCan I just spend the rest of the afternoon sat in the sun? I don't want to do any more printing, or helping students realise their potential

You’d think that 35, I’d have some idea, but I don’t. #lacksdirectionI need a plan. 1. More take-home pay. 2. Less time working. 3. More creative freedom. 4. Better working conditions. Any ideas?
