Holiday

Feeling much, much better, and actually having today and tomorrow off anyway, I decided to spend the day wandering round the shops. You know the type of wandering, the type you have to do on your own, because you are the only person who wants to look at the type of things you want to look at… clear as mud? Put it this way, I wandered round the shopping centre, bought a new pair of jeans and a t-shirt, bought a couple of magazines (Q and a PC one if you must know), went for a coffee and lunch at Cafe Crema in Hamilton (best coffee and a delicious chicken pesto and cheese pannini), bought a house warming card for …

ReligionSPEAKEASY: The one man show that is Carey Henderson, keeps getting better. I’ve contributed one article and just sent off a short piece about my early dalliances with religion. I don’t believe in God. (So why the capital letter? hmmm)I do believe in people’s right to believe in whatever they want to believe in… I do believe that some religions foster positive feelings.I do believe that some religions are archaic and out-dated. Quick question: Believer or not, what would the world be like without religion? (Historical events aside, extract religion from society as it is today). And that’s quite enough of that for the moment if you ask me…

Still awakeBeen awake since 7:30 a.m., which given the past few days, is something of an achievement. Mind you, I’m off for a snooze now as I can hardly keep my eyes open – hey, it’s hard work catching up, cripes what’s it going to be like when we go on holiday later in the year (Nerja for two weeks). Ohh and isn’t it just typical, I don’t go online for a few days and the Galactic Toss Monkeys creep further into the psyche… I wonder if anyone at Google has picked up on it yet… (and while I remember I think it’s “Galactic Toss Monkeys”… ohh darn I was gonna leave this alone wasn’t I… ohh well time for …

Diet

We held a diet contest in my workplace last year. I won it. Lost almost two stones (28lbs) in 10 weeks. I did it healthily, started going to the gym, ate sensible, healthy foods. I felt good about myself, looked better, and enjoyed (in that embarassed way we Brits manage so well) the compliments. I’ve since put on about a stone and not been to a gym since October last year. I’ve always thought of myself as overweight, having never really shed the ‘puppy fat’ of childhood, and never really developing much muscle tone until my early twenties (by which point my weight was on the increase), and like most people, I have a mental image of myself that is …

He’s alive!Well getting there anyway. Still kinda woozy, but at least I can sit upright and not think the room is spinning or that I want to be sick… Which is all just as well as I’d forgotten that today is broadband day. Yay… I just wish I had more enthusiasm for it… ohh and I’ve installed ZoneAlarm as my firewall, unless you techies think there is a better (free) one out there… And, as if by magic, the Telewest van draws up…
