Jealous? Never

Happy Birthday Gran! Yikes it’s December on Friday, and as I live with a Crimbo Nutter that means our tree will be going up (Yes I know the whole 2 weeks before thing…). Still it does mean that a holiday is in sight, but as I’ve just pulled together a list of documents I need to write/update/complete then I’m getting a tad worried. Got an email from SinOz (her new nic whether she likes it or not…) it included a pic of her standing in her new outdoor jacuzzi, I think the temperature is about 34 degrees there. Am I jealous… no of course not! (ohhh and don’t worry Steph I did notice any of the ‘bits’ you mentioned… LOL)

Evolution

The human species is evolving. But into what? Recent propositions have detailed a system where you can order products that you see when watching a film or tv programme. Product placement is now commonplace in major blockbusters, so now when you think – hey cool phone! – all you will need to do is push a button to order it. WAP phones enable you to access up-to-the-minute information and news. The next generation will feature an ‘always-on’ connection, allowing business to push information out to you – when you are walking past your local cinema your phone will beep and you will be able to get cut-price tickets to the latest movie…walking past a fast food chain, it’ll tell you …

Unloomed

Wrong again. Felt really flat on Friday but had a good weekend, relaxed, chilled, did the family thing and some Xmas shopping – not real Xmas shopping more like a laidback alternative, we stayed out of city centre and visited some out of the way places including a couple of garden centres… they have some seriously cool Xmas stuff. Got myself a tree for my desk… v.cool aluminium Xmas tree.

Farcical

Mass hysteria, mobs prowling the street with banners, wrongfully targetting lawful citizens. Where am I? The Middle East? Try Florida, U.S. of A. Personally I’m taking two approaches. 1. Agreeing with American friends that the whole situation is awful, and must be concluded (as long as [insert candidate] wins). 2. Quietly, smugly enjoying those damn yanks getting a little of their own medicine. i.e. the whole world pointing at them and discussing the farce that is their democratic process. Might be easier to get a dictator in, at least the matter would be settled.

Who wants … to care

So I hear that someone finally won £1million on the damn show – I wonder how long it took to get Chris Tarrant to actually confirm her final answer was correct (if you are guessing that this particular programme annoys me you’d be understating). But was it a fix? Not only was the woman Camilla Parker Bowles cousin, which doesn’t count for anything as the royals and lords and ladies of England are expert at inter-breeding.. but it turns out she acted out of character, and didn’t seem too suprised to have won. Fix? WHO CARES!!! In other breaking news, I should hopefully finish of the stunningly UNoriginal re-design soon – and yes I will credit those that I may …

About me

I was gonna post the bit below as the only page on my site yesterday, but I decided not to react over a couple of comments. If you do read things here, don’t think you know me. You only know the words and story I’m playing out on here. If you want to know more about me, talk to me, ask me questions, and respond to mine. Don’t base your decisions on this site.

Changes

SomeTHiNG is changing. The emphasis is changing. The history is changing. The future is changing. Come back if you want. Stay away if you prefer. Why? A direct response/reaction. A re-assessment of the question. Because I can’t ask why.

Ostrich

I fully expect to be aching by the end of the weekend. Beer tonight (hey it’s Friday you know…), then helping friends move into their new flat. Probably more beer, then a very quiet day on Sunday which will no doubt turn into an Xmas shopping day. I’m almost looking forward to Monday already! I’m currently becoming quite apathetic towards many things, anything involving pressure that is… I’m seriously considering the Ostrich approach, and if I decide to take that route, I will make sure everyone knows it! (You and I both know that I won’t but it’s a nice thought isn’t… just bury your head in the sand whilst the bombs go off overhead… ahhh bliss….). Anyway, leaping back …

Planning

A few nice suprises yesterday, one of which wasn’t when my PalmPilot (III) started looking ill. Screen had gone all broken up… strange. Checked out Palm Support, newsgroups, everywhere I could. Ended up hard resetting and losing a lot of stuff. Which brings me round to my point. Planning. I’m terrible at this sort of thing. I’m always too optimistic, which is odd because I don’t consider it my nature. Also at a reasonably critical juncture career-wise. Need to clear out a few things (for want of a better term). Who knows, they may take care of themselves. Either way it will mean changes. Change which is good. Change away from the familiar, so I will have to start learning …
