Washed car. Chopped down small tree. Sun came out. Chopped down some bamboo. Dug over sideborder. Parents visited. BBQ. Went for run. Hot. Legs still tired. Cut grass. Cleared out garage. Went to dump. Watched football. More BBQ. Scottish Blogs stuff. Design skills ‘stuck’, still. Slept like log. More later.
Ack, damn attention deficit disorder. My brain has just skipped from the title of the post to a distant childhood memory of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. I had a few of those toys when I was younger including He-Man himself, who had a built-in spring for his “power punch”, and … eh……Continue reading By the Power of Will
Blimey, a fairly busy week or so of overly gluttonous introspection in blogland. No surprise I guess but this time round it has been fairly forthright and more vociferous than usual. I’ve linked to a few of the following before, but, pulled together they encapsulate most of what has been said. I think. It all…Continue reading Friends and Codes
In an effort to compile a list of what I consider to be the best posts of this blog, and yes such things are highly subjective I know, I spent some time perusing my archives last night. It’s an odd experience, as I found myself re-living a lot of my past via this strange yet…Continue reading Do I REALLY sound like that?
Working at home today, and just about to leave the house for a visit to the dentist. She’s very nice, as are all the staff, but it still irks me that I’m paying to have pain inflicted. We signed up to “go private” just before all the nonsense started and I’m quite smug that I’ve…Continue reading Crater needs filled
Yesterday was a Bank Holiday. Whilst this is not a huge event in and of itself, it is worth noting as it was probably the first time I’ve not worked one for about 10 years. After a day pottering at home on Saturday, we headed through to a friends house for a BBQ on Sunday.…Continue reading Bank Holiday Weekend
Various recent events have me pondering. At what point does the amount of digital content we have become a burden? In the age of “more”, when does “a lot”, become “too much”? Why do I have Carrie Bradshaw’s voice in my head? Leaving the exquisite Ms. Parker (or Mrs. Broderick if you prefer) to one…Continue reading Content in the City
click. bsssszzz, k-chunk. click-klack. Bzzzzzz kvrrrummm whiiirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. “Importing….” “Import Complete” click. bsssszzz, k-chunk. click-klack. Bzzzzzz kvrrrummm whiiirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Repeat ad infinitum. Or, as has been the case, for about 10 CDs at one sitting. I have a lot of CDs and one day they will all be in the loft, gathering dust, replaced by their digital…Continue reading Tilt head for info
Unlike Lyle, I do not, have not and probably will not ever own a three-piece suit. I don’t really see the point in adding an extra layer to a set of clothing that I’ll only wear when under some form of emotional stress and usually in a warm place (unless the air-conditioning is working). Interviews…Continue reading Ohhh, suits you Sir
Tonight was the start of the next 10 week block of JogScotland. In 10 weeks time I’ll be running for a complete hour. Based on tonight it’s gonna be a hard slog. On the other hand, if every evening I go out for a run in are as stunningly gorgeous as it was tonight then…Continue reading Glorious
