My laptop took all afternoon and a fair chunk of this evening to install some updates from Windows. I have no idea why this latest update was so big, but I was told in no uncertain terms that if I need not perform this update, I would not receive any further updates and my PC would be a risk. Uh-oh. The problem was, to install the update, to allow updates, I needed to install ANOTHER update – to the BIOS.

I performed the BIOS update with ease (I even took a photo!). The Windows update, though, took ages. Hours and hours, in fact. At least my laptop didn’t start updating itself, while I was doing something important, which is when they normally strike (cheers, Bill Gates).

I have some fantastic news to announce. I have won the lottery. Well, not quite yet. But I will do.

We have a syndicate at work, involving 31 tickets being purchased. How can we possibly lose?

In addition to this, we also have two Euromillions tickets. This is because we were originally supposed to buy 33 tickets, but somebody put a Euro coin into the money jar, leaving us a quid short. As we could only buy 31 tickets (still more than enough to win the lottery), we had a spare pound, which was used to purchase a scratch card. This scratch card won £5. So, while we were effectively £4 up on the deal. Still with me? This money was used to buy two Euromillions tickets.

I don’t want to be greedy, but I’m pretty sure that we’re definitely going to win both lotteries!

After work, I watched the third episode, from the latest X Files season. This has to be the best so far.

As expected, it was, what fans of the show call, a Monster of the Week episode.

It was classic X Files. Lots of violent deaths, under strange circumstances; a cynical Scully; Mulder wanting to believe; and it all coming to ahead at the end.

Oh, and Mulder and Scully had sex… not that you saw anything, but as far as the ongoing “will they? Won’t they?” saga goes, this is pretty big news. A bit like Ross and Rachel from Friends. In next week’s episode, Mulder and Scully are set to have an argument, Mulder will sleep with a white witch, and when an angry Scully finds out, defend himself by saying “We were on a break!”

I’m struggling to think of what to blog about tonight. In my defence, I spent a while this evening preparing something else for my blog… WordPress pages. Pages are like blog posts, but will contain more information than a single post and more specific to a certain topic.

The first topic is retro gaming memories. I don’t know how long this will take to complete, as I want to do it properly.

Don’t worry, though – I’ll be back to blogging memes, directed at Donald Trump, as well as other bollocks, tomorrow.

I feel Donald Trump needs a campaign like Ted, to clear his name.
