About Me & Cactus World

Whining about this, moaning about that; my entirely pointless, contradictory, negative and meaningless views on life can be found here.

A failure on almost every level, I now spend my daylight hours in an office, trying to save the planet by writing 100s of e-mails; whilst at other times I listen to music, watch DVDs and go to punk and ska gigs, to try and hide the fact that I’ve got no friends.  When I’m not busy doing nothing, I make up (and continually update with great and exciting news) fictitious people on Facebook, just so I can then Friend them and it looks like I hang out with the coolest people on the planet.   I’ve also got a kettle too, which is great for boiling water.  I learnt everything I need to know about life from watching Star Trek, reading Thomas Hardy and listening to punk music.

For life’s true explorers, bohemians and visionaries, (along with the rest of us who’re bored, stupid, drunk or lost), I provide a futile glimpse of true enlightenment and the chance to stare into the full horror that is the void of old age. It’s a whole world of pain.

Welcome to Cactus World! 

Technical Note:  Cactus World is in fact an ill thought-out but complex, pan-dimensional concept, fuelled by a mixture of decent cider, punk and ska music, which encapsulates the sneaking suspicion that basically I’m living as an observer of life rather than a participant in it.

Technical Note 2:  When I’m not living a fantasy life as the only occupant of Cactus World, I work as a manager for a environmental/community charity.  For some reason that entirely escapes me, I’m trusted with the management and development of most of what it does in South East England, the staff and the money.  For someone who hates people with no social skills, emotional intelligence, financial or business acumen or qualifications, this  confuses the hell out of me.  Really, it’s like putting an alcoholic in charge of a pub, or Jason Voorhees in charge of a hospital surgical unit.

    Hi Paul,
    I’ve come back from a moving forward training course in relation to me being made a redeployee within BT. One of the things I should be doing is networking. As I’m sitting at home using up my annual leave before the end of March I thought I would call you haveing seen that it was your birthday this week. But my mobile phone is not in my pocket and I’ve failed to track it down yet!

    Any way I thought I would check out your web presence and see what was upsetting you this week. [You would have enjoyed the course as it tells you to focus on the solutions and not the problems.]

    I’ve just been on the phone about Reading tickets, which I bought last September, to see if they were real. Robin is going after taking his A2s. [Music, Geography and Eng lit.]

    I must try and ring you.

    PS do you have any jobs?
