Too much

I’ve had enough. So has Louise. We generally reach this point at the same time, which is quite handy, although if I’m honest I possibly reach it before she does, I just ignore it for longer (or maybe she does that too). Tonight the house is GETTING IT BIG TIME. I should probably explain what I mean, right? Well we live in a three-bedroomed semi-detached house. The smallest bedroom is the ‘office’ as it has the computer in it. The largest bedroom is ours, and the spare bedroom … well that belongs to Louise I guess. We have a single bed and a couple of wardrobes in there, and it’s mainly used as a large walk in closet by Louise. …

Arsebuckets

UPDATE: Should be fixed now. Many, many, MANY thanks to Jann for pointing out the bleedin’ obvious. 😉 So it looks like the main screw up in my migration to WordPress has, somehow, been an alteration in how this page displays in IE6 (and possibly lower). Buggeration. How is that possible? I’m using the same CSS to control the three columns you see here (or if you are using IE6 you will see when you scroll down), and I’ve not changed ANYTHING else except replace the Blogger codes with WordPress codes. I had a quick look at this last night but come 10.30pm I could hardly keep my eyes open. Another quick look this morning and nothing obvious is leaping …

Bad man

It happens in an instant, you walk round the corner and bump into a rather attractive lady. In a split second you both mumble apologises and a split second later you both realise you vaguely know each other. One more split second passes and you realise that you still haven’t phoned her like you promised you would, ten years ago. Now, if only I could remember her name…

Hello? Is this on? Well looks like all is working, so HELLO! Welcome to my new WordPress powered site. I’d expect a couple of days of minor tweaking but hopefully you won’t/haven’t noticed a thing. All in all it was pretty darn easy – once I’d figured out how to get the old Blogger posts imported – and I’ve still to figure out a couple of minor things, Trackbacks aren’t working and I’ll change the Permalink to the Post Title I think, but all in good time. If you spot anything odd let me know.

Last Ever Post…

… using Blogger. And whaddya know, this morning it’s running faster than a fast thing that’s very fast. Typical. Anyway, things WILL look funny here for the next couple of days, so bare with me. See you on the other side.

85 not out

Officially it’s tomorrow, but Happy Birthday to my Gran. 85 years young and delighted with the ‘vibrator’ she got as a present (it’s a foot massager, really..). I’m slightly hungover so it must’ve been a good night last night, and no, I don’t want to talk about the rugby. This may, or may not, be the last time I post use Blogger *sniffs*. Hope your weekend was as good as mine.

Scottish Blogmeet

Edinburgh, Saturday the 11th December, venue to be confirmed. Be there or.. be somewhere else but I’d really like it if you were there. I’ve corrected the date. Apologies for any confusion. It is definitely on the Saturday. The 11th. NOT the 12th.

Philosophical

Today I am wearing my “Nothing is any good if other people like it” t-shirt (scroll to foot of page). But what type of statement is that? It’s not ironic, but I’m certain it’s more than sarcasm. Any high-brow readers care to try and classify it? (I’m still coffee-less so will try myself later on).

SLR-less shyness

Late-night shopping last night, so Louise came into Glasgow to meet me after work (she was held up because the police had closed London Road, but NOT because of anything traffic related. So why? Heard nothing else about this but we did spot three police officers stopping random cars near George Square, most odd. I digress). The Pier had a 20% of night, with wine and nibbles laid on, and as usual we saw three or four things we’d like, mainly Christmas decorations, and as usual we balked at paying £13 for a glittery candle. There is some wonderful stuff in that store but it appears to be hand-made and unique such are the prices. None of the things we …

This post may not interest you in the slightest, the main point is that you shouldn’t notice a thing but it may be quiet here for a few days in the near future. I think, after four and a half years, through Blogger Pro, the Google buyout, the redesign and all the early day issues, it’s time I finally said goodbye to Blogger. It’s been fun, and I’m forever in the debt of the guys at Pyra for helping me get started – I can still remember finding Blogger, completely independently, when I was looking for an easier way to update my website than having to hand code a page, then hand code additional links and finally FTP all the …
