Just call me Alan Partridge

I'm living in an "apartment-hotel", which has it's good sides and it's downsides.

I get my breakfast made everyday, but I do get asked every six seconds do I want a cup of tea or coffee.

I noticed I didn't have an oven in my apartment. Which is pretty poor, but I thought oh well, at east I can have beans on toast. Unfortunately I don't even have a toaster so I had to have bean sandwiches for tea. What made it even worse was the fact I bought cheapo local beans. They had no tomatoes, no sugar or salt in them. It wasn't the best meal I've eaten.

A positive is that I get a free newspaper everyday. (free as in my company are paying for it) and I also have arabic cable TV. Which is great for UK sports. I've even managed to watch an episode of Seinfeld, butI can't see what all the fuss is about!

There's also a gym in the hotel. I've been the only person using it the past few days. I thought "great my own person gym"... so I felt like a right arse when someone walked into the gym while I was checking out my (still small) biceps in the mirror!

I already get referred to as Mr Robinson in the hotel, the guys here know me. It wont be long before I before I start having mettings round here...
