About Me - GAD123

My photo
Belfast, N.I., United Kingdom
I first got on the net over 15 (2009) years ago and have had my own site for at least 7 (2009) of those years (a place where I could dump the misery of my everyday life!), you can see my fist efforts @ www.freewebs.com/gad123 and my current blog @ www.gad123.co.uk . I am a kind person, smart, (I know that is subjective) and witty, the dry, sarcastic type! I am told that I am easy to talk to and am very laid back. I enjoy playing poker, listening to any music, watching movies & American TV shows, love going to the pub, dancing on a Saturday night and am a bit of a nerd as I own a Wii, PS3 and built my own PC! I am a creature of routine, love the night time when all the exciting things happen, am a bit of an insomniac and love getting trashed at the weekends! If you want, you can catch me on MSN @ graham@gad123.co.uk! Take care and enjoy you browse around this GAD123 Page!

GAD123, A Current Piece of Me...

Well it has been so long I can't remember how to do this... I have not blogged because I don't have much to report, it's all just the same old, same old। I have been really busy tho, it's amazing how you can fill up your time! I will try to make this simple and then I am all square with the blogging world!
  • I am still very much single (yes, by choice *sigh*)
    The new Streets CD is brill, far better than I could have ever expected. 'Never Give In' is my fav track so far! (SBB)
    I have finally been applying for jobs
    My internet is screwed again so if I am not on MSN or I don't reply to e mails you know why. You can read about it here on the - Tiscali Forums
    I am going to post some new Pics, after all those lovely comments from ladies! My head is in danger of getting larger, lol
    I want to visit Jana in Brazil and have started to learn Portuguese
    I have not been playing much poker lately *sadly* Cheers for helping me out the other day Kayeso
    Congrats to Amy, aww little baby Logan!
    Jackie, I have not fallen out with you!
    Has everyone found me on all the social networking sites? I frequent them all!
    Some general quotes from me, if fact the three that I am told sum me up... (Do I need to mention they are tongue in cheek? How does that translate, IRONIC!!!!!!)
    'I hate women'
    'I am so Depressed'
    'You Make me Sick!'

A Proper blog and Glasto...

Yes, yes, I know it's been a while since I really blogged but the live videos I am posting on Qik GAD123 hopefully have made up for it a little! It's the Glasto weekend as I am sure you are all aware, I normally got to a buddies house and camp out, listening to the festival and partying until the small hours but it not on this year। I did it for 10 years and it was one if not THE best weekends of the year. I missed it last year and Paddy passed away so it was cancelled. So just to let you know I will be thinking about Neil, Don, Mike and everyone else this weekend! The coverage is great on the BBC, with a line up that I can pick 10's of acts I wanna see! So it will be cider for me from when I get up tomorrow, kicking off with the Adam and Joe show on BBC Radio Music 6 and heading through until I pass out at like 6am, lol! Also it my Nieces birthday and she is having a party here, so I am DJ'ing for a bunch of 10 year olds apparently, all afternoon!!

So a quick catch up then. My broadband is dying a death, only getting 1mb, which sucks. Obviously been contacting Tiscali but can't get them to sort it out and as far as I am aware they are attempting to sell the company off, so that does not help! Listened to a lot of Sonar last weekend, I remember first catching it on the John Peel show years ago. Now that's a festival I love love to get to! Would also love to hit Belsonic in Belfast but don't, at this stage know if anyone is going, Friday's line up is cool! Again tho, BBC has that covered if I don't make it! Been playing a bit of poker, still reeling from that scary, crippling call last time from Magic on a straight, that hit *sigh* Football has been great, I tipped Spain and they are in the final, so that's my Sunday evening sorted! New CD's I have been listening to and am going to listen to next week include; Dan Le Sac VS Scroobius Pip - Angles, Sigur Ros - Med Sud Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust and Seu Jorge America Brasi! I am totally skint, bought a new suit for job interviews and heading to England next month to push forward that opportunity! I know that was short and sweet but I am off out tonight। I will be comatosed for the rest of the weekend so will see you on the other side! Have a good one folks!

I hope you all enjoyed reading yesterdays post. I was thinking all day if I should post it and finally at 5am I had enough and typed most of it out. Hopefully it's the start of me posting again but we shall see! I mean, who is interested in the crap I write, I suppose that sums up why I have not been posting! If I could write about everything I would have some mad, funny stories to share but I would offend practically every person I know, oh wait I do anyway, lol! There's the lying, obsessive bitchy girls, the fights, the "Everything that is NOT acceptable is OK", the fishing trip, surely a 23 year old girl is to young for me to go out with, the England start up business with the great money offer, the "I hate women" or "I'm so depressed", the affairs, the "Let me give you a b*ow job or I will knock your ballacks in", The hours lost through drink which I ALWAYS get the blame for, I am just tag along Graham, the amusing dates and falling in love with me... I have just touched the surface and that's only the last week! lol All water under the bridge as every week it resets, no loading from the last point, there are no saves in this game!
I bloody chipped my tooth again on a Spring Roll, it's long running saga that one but a bit of a p*sser as it's my front one! Lastly for today I got round to watching Eternal Sunshine for a Spotless Mind! All I will say is, probably bad timing for watching that movie! Oh, wait, one more thing, I totally forgot that South Park had started again, jumped out of bed last night in the am and furiously got to work DL'ing, nearly have the first 7 eps, so, so, soooo can't wait to watch them! Have a good one folks!

Dear Blog, it's been a long time since my last confession and believe me when I say that I am wracked with guilt about that alone, it deserves it's own post। The lack of structure in my life is causing havoc with a routine for posting and I don't really feel that I can write anything of any worth, without some time constraints and pressure। That said, here I am sporadically posting, though it is set to change as my six months off work is coming to an end and some rigidity will follow soon, all being well!

I have been to Amsterdam since we last conversed and Cardiff, I had a blast but I am sure I would just bore you talking about it। Had some great nights out, all faded memories now but boy did some controversial sh*t happen, well may be kick off is more the word! " That Demon Drink" *shakes fist* I have spent so much money, covered all the entertainment bases, bought some nice things (waiting on GTA 4 for PS3 to arrive in the post) and fitted in some poker, tho my results have tailed off in live play! Last time I only managing 3rd and we are on a break for the footy at the mo! Have had more success online and am finding cash games a bit of a breeze. I play the total opposite to my normal tight game, so it's ironic really!

So to recap, drink, drugs, rock and not forgetting roll and a pinch of gambling, hmmm। What else do I have to confess? Oh, women, I can't fathom your actions sometimes. See the way I just offend all the women I know, lol! Take for example SBB. Now that was over and dealt with years ago, she dumped me for her own reasons, totally broke my heart and probably turned me in to the cold, well maybe that's a bit harsh, void of feeling, maybe not that, having complete emotional control possibly, well anyone who knows me will get it. I tend to be really good at dealing with stuff and containing myself in my own little bubble, talking and sharing everything but not really giving anything away. Like Kimi, the Ice Man, lol! Anyway I digress, everything was put in a little box like Pandora's, filed away and sorted. Probably under Z, so as not to be found too often. It meant that when she got in touch (which is every few months if averaged out), if she wanted an alternate opinion or a bit of support I was there to give it, then when she fell in to the void again it was cool! I am not the sort to hold a grudge or wish ill upon anyone and would do what I could to help anyone, again as I would hope all my friends would agree with. Now, she is forging a life in a new country and I assume that she is really living the good life, the life she wants and is having a great time doing that. It's sort of a running joke that when she gets in touch, I would bring up that she owes me a holiday and when am I invited over. Now the interesting bit, finally some reward for reading all that crap...

She invited me over, which is grand in it's self and this has happened before। Tho this time it's a little different, she is serious. It's not a joke! I explained that there is nothing to gain from me visiting, tho I would like to hang out and get another holiday, we could hook up and have a blast! I don't think for one second that we would not fall into our own little world but it's empty fun, as when I return we will not be together, she has the same issues in her life and the void will suck her back in again! So that's it you would think but not really. Friday night she phoned me, I spoke to her briefly before she had to go but then she called my house, left messages on my Moby answer machine telling me that she loved me! *shocker* She also texted to say she thinks about me all the time! Now to further flesh this out, when we where together, many years ago we had the best relationship, we where each others 'ONE'! Something that I think rarely happens in life and it's entirely possible that this has not changed, tho as discussed earlier I have (maybe read as had) dealt with all that. I don't know if there is something has changed, if it was that I was a little weak after just coming back and recovering from Amsterdam but there is a chink of light coming from that dust old filing cabinet and I think Pandora's box mat be a jar! The funny thing is that she has not bothered to reply to texts or get in touch since Friday night, what sort of head fu*k is that? It's not that I am having a problem dealing with it, that I have any other chicks on the go to be concerned about but I just can't believe that after all these years and I have only talked to her face to face a few times in like the last 5 years, that she is still willing to risk our sanity for a few days of fun that she will not let continue!

Am I just supposed to forget about it, read between the line or god forbid being made a fool out of? Tho I doubt that, as I am well aware of what's happening! If anyone knows anything about women and can help, being constructive and not being hurtful or stating the obvious because this is not a normal relationship or situation, please give me your 2 cents worth! Oh and just before anyone thinks I am being hypocritical, as I say NEVER go back as a rule, this, my friends would be the exception that proves that rule, lol!

Finally, I updated my phone and somehow lost numbers and texts when the memory was wiped। So if I have not replied to you or whatever you know why! The positive side to this is that I have Truphone VoIP set up aging on my Moby. So you can get me on that number or just go to my facebook profile click the Truphone button on the left and call me for free from your PC and leave a message if I am not with in Wi-Fi range! How cool is that?

Another Week...

Sup folks? So last week I had a SIM Problem with the old Moby, thank god it's all sorted now tho! Last week was a bit of a mare really, dinners, meetings, paintballing, pubs, clubs, etc। Even had the possibility of a really good job but it would mean moving to England.

This week has been a little more subdued and the weekends going to be a quite affair, just popping round to a friends for a beer or twenty and some darts! Must say hi to Brian, Happy Birthday Dude!

Suppose it's getting near that time of year to start talking about Glasto... This year's festival will be headlined by US rapper Jay-Z, which is a bit cool। The rest of this year's line-up remains a closely guarded secret, although Neil Diamond will play the so-called "veteran's slot" on the Sunday! Also it's the time of year to talk about F1! 2 weeks to go to the Melbourne Australian Grand Prix and I can't wait, we even have a night, street race this year in Singapore!

Finally 3 strikes you are out on suspected illegal internet DL'ing! What's next, the PSNI come round to your house to remove your car because you have, may have or possibly will in the future break the speed limit *sigh*

Valentines Day...

OMG, I don't have a girl friend on Valentines Day, how great is that, no over priced flowers, gifts, meals or getting everything wrong, lol! Not that of course I would but it's nice not to even have to think about it! I have a fantastic weekend planned, just for me! It consists of some good wine, carryout food, great music and online poker! Ah, does life get any better??! Bet you are all jealous, I might even buy myself something nice. Hope whatever you have planned does not end in failure, arguments and tears. God I am becoming so cynical, ha.... becoming!

So what else is going on with me, well not much, been busy doing my thing (usually involving alcohol). Lost poker last night, final hand I had pocket J's under the gun, raised it up half my stack and ran into Kayeso with pocket A's in the big blind going all in to a raise. Can't fault my play and if I had won that hand I would have been there at the end again but you just can't get in the money every week!

I have decided that I am now a bit disillusioned with not working and have given myself another two weeks and then I am going to get a job, finally, I have had enough!

So where will you be on Superbowl Sunday? Obviously I will be watching the game, lacking SBB but there you have it! Um, New England Patriots to win I suppose for the clean sweep, winning every game of the season!

I can't wait to go out and get trashed tonight, really looking forward to getting drunk. As I have been drinkin very little the novelty is back! Happy Birthday goes out to my big Sis, tonight is her night so I hope I don't end up just falling over, doubt it tho, I can never get THAT drunk, lol!

Hope you all have and are having a brill weekend! Party safe folks!

Hello Everyone, Want an Update???

Current Mood :: The current mood of gad123 at www.imood.com
Current Music :: GAD123 Last FM
E-Mail GAD123 :: E-Mail GAD123

OK, OK, so it's been a while, well a looonnngggg while! I don't really know why I have not updated, I wish I could say it was because I was so busy but I don't think that excuse will cut it. I am still not working, by choice, am telling people that I am retired. I have not even looked for a job, it's not the situation I wanted to be in but when I realised that this is the last time in my life that I will not have any responsibilities, no bills, wife, GF, kids and that gubbens, with enough money put aside to live the same life that I have been, I thought I should enjoy it! So here we are.

I have found plenty to get on with, working through an PC Maintenance course with a friend, playing poker (won in Wolseys last night sorry Kayeso), hitting the pub and acting like a teenager every weekend, watching every movie going that I can grab, got Sky+ so am very flexible as to when I wanna watch TV (can't recommend Sky+ high enough), playing PS3 (bought lots of games), modding my PC (hard drives, routers, software, etc), pottering, blah, blah, blah. It's great just doing whatever and living anti social hours (can't tell if 6am is early in the morning of late at night)! The weirdest thing is that I am drinking less than I ever was before, I thought I would be drinking more but hey, that's a good thing!

This week I watched the Royal Rumble live with John on Sunday, poker last night in the pub, tonight is study night at Brian's, hair cut tomorrow night (been growing it and I look like a 70's throw back), cleaning, etc on Fri and then round to Two Beers, finally out on the town on Saturday night, dinner and clubbing possibly... Sunday chill and take my niece out for lunch!

I have booked a holiday to Costa Del Cardiff to see Jackie for our birthdays so looking forward to that and may try and get away somewhere else any offers, Malaga anyone?! lol

Little Amy bunny is up the duff, nothing to do with me... he he, but I wanna congratulate her and wish her all the best, she will be a wonderful Mom!

Should mention the new TV shows starting soon (the bloody writers strike is really messing up my TV as everything that I DL is on hold), Lost next week and Ashes to Ashes, boy that show has a lot to live up to! I am currently DL'ing all the hits from 1981.

My internet is screwed (something to do with the telephone line and problems on my exchange but that's my own findings), I use Tiscali and this is an extract from our last exchange, can you tell how stressed I am getting, lol. It's been going on for like 6 months now:

"Can you please explain to me why I was told by two of your 2nd level support team and 1 sales person why my line (after testing) could support 7.7mb?

I used to have 2.3mb broadband until I started having problems, traced to Tiscali but no formal explanation given, with a loss of broadband for 2 weeks and now achieving only a speed of 1.2mb. Can you tell me why you are now only saying it will support a slower speed (I have checked samknows to see what I can get), has my line been tested at all? Also I have had e mails confirming that the upgrade will take place and also it has taken a month for someone to get back to me on this despite various e mails to billing, technical support, etc."

I really need to change my profile here, it's been the same for over 6 months and a little out of date!

Finally today I have to mention Big Brother, I know no one watched it but you really missed out, it was fantastic and Big John deserved to win, what a lovely man. Special mention goes to Calista she is my ideal chick, to young obviously but she is fun, hot, intelligent, hubba, hubba!

Peace out!
