Something You Have Fixed

I’m not exactly Mr Fixit – I’m way too clumsy for that. In fact, while I think of it, I have mentioned Billy Bragg before, and his new track really sums this up for me.

and while I’m drifting past the subject – big love for Billy Bragg. I don’t think the man has written a bad song his life.

(I just went on a 20 minute YouTube diversion watching Billy Bragg videos…)

So what have I fixed? Not a lot really. The best thing I can come up with was that when I was young I had a massive tape player – really big thing, that was also a turntable and radio. But the tape player was broken – it didn’t have the plastic drawer that you put tapes into. You just had to insert them into the machine itself.

This meant that the tapes didn’t quite sit right, and would sounds odd, like they were underwater or something. My solution, after a lot of experimentation, was to put a small model car onto one side of the tape which would hold it down in the right way to align the heads and get good sound quality.

Bank Holiday Fun

I often have trouble identifying with Bank Holidays because my work doesn’t really work that way. They roll all the Bank Holidays into the general Annual Leave entitlement, and it all works out. But May Day is one of the few Bank Holidays that we get (the other being St Andrews Day) so I suppose it’s worthy of note.

Mrs Worm is at work, so it’s very much a play day for me, which I have chosen to illustrate through the medium of photographs.

I got up and had coffee, then got down to the hard work of defeating Skyrim
I do have some responsibilities, and one of them is getting in my car
And getting the food, which enables me to start the process of getting the beef ready for burritos this evening.
In the meantime, I play Rock Band 3 either drums

And generally just chill out, until I go to work tomorrow.
