So immediately ordered FM05 and went straight on the data editor to get my new signings and we got promoted to the Premier League! (Ok so there were occasions when I accidently pressed ctrl/alt/del) Haven't played it since then cos kept losing and it started to piss me off (especially as my balance is summat like £19million and the board for some dick head reason only wanna give me £600,000 of it!)



haha, try managing sunderland, 400k interest every month until 2012!


they only give ya 750k when ya get into the premiership aswell. Great game though.

I don't think you can while away five days in Atlanta. Unless you manage to get into one of the bad neighbourhoods and end up spending some of the days in hospital, that is.

I've lived in 5 different states and 3 different countries and I have to say that San Francisco is by far the best place I've ever lived (actually I used to live in Newark, which is in the San Francisco Bay Area, it's just an hour drive away). It would be a shame to not visit one of the most beatiful cities in the country (nice weather too and really friendly ppl). Oh, and they have great chinese and Indian/Pakistani food there too (infact, there's this great place called "Shalimar" on O'Farell & Jones, it's comparable to authentic Indian/Pakistani food).

Well we're only gonna have two weeks max (due to money) and our free flights only go to Boston, New york, Washington or Atlanta (all over on the East) so it'd be a bit much goin over to the West Coast (plus I NEED authentic Cajun food! Yum Yum!)

Well DC and NO are the main ones (DC for political stuff/museums and NO for the food!!!) so Atlanta was just on the way really. Is there anywhere better then inbetween DC and NO?

Bummer. Hopefully you'll make another trip sometime then.

So I just fell down the stairs coming up to my apartment... They are concrete stairs. I have a HUGE bruise on my arm, my toes are all cut up and bloody (I was wearing sandals) and there are two massive gashes on my shins.

*sigh

What I wouldn't give to be NOT clumsy.

So, I'm not sure if any of you listen to this since it IS TA... but I picked up the new NIN album, for I am an avid fan and have been for many many years. It's excellent. Different, but that's okay. The difference is understandable if you recognize the fact that Trent Reznor dropped all of his drug habits, so of course his music took a complete 180! If you pick it up expecting the usual NIN type of music, you will be sorely disappointed, but if you pick it up with an open mind and listen to it just as an album without concentrating too much on the past NIN albums, you'll find sheer brilliance.

Following the "dating"-part of this thread, my experiences would tend to agree with yours: It seems like people in the US are dating rapidly, and getting new dates at a pace I couldn't manage. In Denmark you tend to get introduced to potential partners through mutual friends, meet in professional settings, at a club (both being drunk), or explicitly through dating agencies/web pages. Jumping strangers would be totally out of the question. However, here in the US, I would say that people are *far* more aggressive in their flirting and hook-ups. The most extreme example I saw was some random dude stopping two girls on the street and asking one of them out. When she declined he asked the other one.
The general setup really makes me uncomfortable in some situations, as I don't have years of practice navigating such an environment, and I often end up turning people away because I can't figure them out. For instance, one of my neighbours, who were given a tour of my apartment before moving in, kept stopping to talk to me on the stairs, eventually ending up suggesting we'd go and get a cup of coffee at sometime. In Denmark I would interpret this as the beginning of a friendship, but here in NYC I just thanked him no, thinking that if he was gay and he was thinking of a date, I'd be in trouble.
