A very late Week 7
Weekly Rating: 9/10
Highlight: It was my birthday, so obviously shapes were thrown and champagne was spilt.
Lowlight: One hell of a hangover on my Birthday.
Felt: Loved – It is always important to realise how wicked your friends are.
Watched: Not much really
Read: Finished The Lost Symbol this week, a good book but won’t get a second read. Now it’s time for The Diaries of a Fleet Street Fox, which is excellent so far. Thoroughly recommend it.
Heard: The new Biffy Clyro album and the new Eels album = meh, not bowled over
Visited: Work, pubs, restaurants and bars.
Want: To spend the week in bed, under a duvet.
Need: Work out what I am going to do with this site, damn you Posterous for closing.
Miss: Having a good night’s sleep, on the whole I am pain free, except over night, which sucks big time. On reflection I would advise people to try to not rupture their ACL.
Learnt: I can dance on a gammy leg; always good to know in case someone chops it off.
Weekly Rating: 7/10
Highlight: Kicking on with my rehab.
Lowlight: The distinctly average adverts from the Super Bowl, normal there are at least 3 that are awesome, but no luck this year.
Felt: Pain but its a good pain, the type of pain you have inflicted on yourself(not getting cutty I mean when you push yourself).
Watched: Utopia, Suits, Grey’s Anatomy, J.Edgar and The Rum Diary. If you haven’t seen The Rum Diary, I completely forgot how hot Amber Heard is, apart from that the film is ok, but really she is gorgeous.
Read: The Lost Symbol and a paper by Cass Business School and the Pensions Institute called A Healthier Way to De-Risk, it was riveting as you could imagine.
Visited: Work, Physio Wembley and a Curry House. I saw England play for the first time and we beat Brazil, which was nice.
Want: A snow week, and a snow Birthday.
Need: to stop pushing to hard.
Miss: Being young and partying until 6 in the morning.
Learnt: Very little about the de-risking of pension schemes, far to high academia for me.
Weekly Rating: 6/10
Highlight: catching up with Friends.
Lowlight: Sunday service on South Eastern Trains.
Felt: Frustrated and Pain, my knee rehab is really getting old.
Watched: Detachment, a good Adrian Brody film, The Big Bang Theory, one of my favourite US TV shows, Six Nations and lots of NFL programmes ahead of the Super Bowl, I love this time of the year.
Read: The Lost Symbol, I have finally fallen into this book and now I can’t put it down.
Visited: Doctors, Work, the Pub and the Launch Party for a friends project.
Want: My bike to arrive, it gets here tomorrow and I can’t wait.
Need: to be more patient with my knee.
Miss: Getting a seat on my train.
Learnt: A lot about American Football.
Well here goes, my State on Sunday will sum up my week, starting with the first week of 2013.
Weekly Rating: 8/10
Felt: Pain, my knee is still very painful after my operation and is becoming a real pain, I cant sleep comfortably or be comfortable at all really.
Watched: Having joined LoveFilm and Netflix last week I have been glued to the TV from under my duvet. Bullet Boy, After Sex, 50/50, the whole of the Pan Am series, The Big Bang Theory, Africa another amazing BBC wildlife programme and Mr Selfridge. Pan Am and 50/50 are very good and thoroughly recommended.
Read: The Lost Symbol and catching up on my pocket list, mainly articles on work, I love catching up on thoughts across the industry.
Visited: Doctors, Physios, Hairdressers and Friends
Want: I have been concentrating on trying to make my leg better, it’s not working and is very frustrating.
Need: Constant pain relief, see above.
Miss: Santa and the full house that Christmas brings.
Learnt: My friends are acecakes.
