I’m gonna spend hours on this site.
Wow! November went quick! It feels like it was only last week that I was in Piccadilly Gardens with the Manchester Anonymous collective. For those of you who didn’t hear, AnonManchester was there on 5 November.
What have I been up to? Well I’ve been the busiest I have been in quite a while. My university assignments are mounting up (and are all due in within 2 weeks), we are going ahead with the formation of Potion Forest LLP (all very exciting), and Squidwolf Syndicate’s hosting customers are steadily coming in.
Transforming Experience II was deployed, albeit almost two weeks late. As for Indigo House well it is now just me & Bryony, Matt left at the beginning of November and moved back in to his mother’s house. This is a strain on bills but Matt has agreed to still pay his share.
I saw Catching Fire this week at the midnight premiere in Bolton with Bryony, Lydia, and Matt. It was AMAZING!!! Seriously if you haven’t seen it then go watch…go watch NOW!
What is coming up
Christmas! Obviously… Bryony is going to be with me this year with my parents & my grandmother. It doesn’t just stop there though since we will be all over the place in the space of a week going to Hebden Bridge, back to Bolton, to Manchester for Christmas Day, then down to Redding for New Year. A lot of people to visit in a short space of time.
People I want to see before the end of the year
Hopefully Soffi will get some leave & will be able to hang out in Bolton before Christmas but it is looking slim, I haven’t heard from her in a while; same goes for Hollie.

I really didn’t want to edit this video but I’m glad I did. I came up with a plan that I should edit one minute of footage an evening until it is done but I went on a roll and ended up finishing the whole thing, I hope you like it!
I got contacted by someone on Facebook asking me to add them to my friends list (people who aren’t friends of friends can’t be on my friends list, only follow me). I realised that this was a spam bot data mining account thingy but rather than just block them, I decided to have a little fun…
At this point I was smiling with excitement. I posted a status update requesting people to suggest questions to ask him/it:
Louise Desilus posted a few questions that I asked him but then Luke Orrey (a player on Squidwolf Minecraft) offloaded about 60 questions into the comments thread:
Too many to get in one screen capture, anywho:
He then asks me for my phone number. So…naturally I type “FBI Phone Number” into Google and send him that…
I didn’t think he would be stupid enough to give me is actual number but he did, so I posted it publicly on my Facebook Wall.
At this point I am just stalling since I have nothing else to keep him talking with.
He finally decided to Google the number I save him and sure enough he found out where I got it….he then BLOCKED ME!
I must be the first person ever to be blocked by a spammer.
I hope you enjoyed this little story.

Soooo the rant, eh? What is this all about? Well firstly before you read on I’d like to direct your attention to my last proper journal post I did which was basically a rant in itself and this post isn’t going to be any different. Click Here to read it then come back.
To really quantify where I am going with this rant you first need a little background to the whole thing. It all started when I met a girl called Stephanie Caine back when I was a fresher at University of Bolton. She was living in the same flat as my, now girlfriend, Bryony Harwood. At first she was nice, we got along really well as a trio but then things took a turn. Back then I didn’t handle my finances very well which resulted in Bryony needing to bail me out, I have since paid her back. But at the same time Steph also ran out of money so Bryony was buying her food for a while (as you can see in the other post). The stink of it was that Steph didn’t and still hasn’t paid Bryony back for any of it. She has done this not once, not twice, but three times. The only sort of financial reimbursement Steph has given Bryony is a snidey £60.
Steph seems to be very good at playing the ignorant twat as whenever we bring this up she does this weird face and looks up as if to think “hmm, do I really owe you money?” …yes Steph, yes you do.
For the unaware, Indigo House is what we have named our first Student House. So on to the second round of twatbaggery? Ok here we go!…
Against what should have been better judgement, Steph moved in with us to our first shared student house. And within a month and a half, she had ran out of money again. Not only that but she managed to sweet-talk her way into going to West Yorkshire with Bryony to her stepmother’s house for christmas and didn’t offer to pay her away at all, not even a christmas card.
New Year arrived and this is when Bryony had given up hoping for any sort of money payback, so she had settled on the amount of £60 with Steph.
January arrived and as if she had never seen a fireplace before Steph began to turn on the fireplace in the living room at fullblast for basically what could be considered two weeks. This resulted in a huge £90 excess on the gas bill which should have been paid entirely by Steph but we knew she would throw a hissy fit so we all chipped in. The biggest deal of it was the fact that she would sit directly in front of the fireplace so non of the heat reached anyone else in the room.
The final straw was when she had been planning to move out for ages but dropped the bombshell on us in front of the landlord, see other post for details.
That is it, rant over.
