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 …

Plans

Tonight, tonight (damn Phil Collins again…or was it Genesis, and why am I getting such a sense of deja wotsit as I type this?). Gonna tidy up the re-design – it’s gone through 3 or 4 iterations, and is almost there. Just need to make it a better cleaner, and double-check all the styles and links work. On past history I’ll say it’ll be posted on Saturday…which one though!! Ohh how witty am I…. Ohhh and I have a little update for Instant Ideas. A site which still gets about 50 – 100 hits a week. A site which gets updated every… oh… 3 months? Go figure…

It's late

So it’s late and I’m still sitting here at the computer. Again. There must be more to life, and even as I type this I realise that there is. I’m just too damn lazy to get off my ass and do it. I also hate the way I so easily typed ass, an American word… I much prefer arse, but it seems that the great ole U.S of A is seeping into my pores. I can’t wait for an proper International community, which should start to evolve over the next couple of years. I know there are a lot of ‘communities’ on the web. Friends of friends etc, but it’s gonna get bigger than that. Or it won’t.

Wonder Boys

Wonder Boys – good film. Nothing spectacular, and gave me the same feel that American Beauty did (well not quite as much). Tobey Maguire was excellent, Michael Douglas was quietly superb, and for the small amount of time she had, Frances McDormand was her usual self, effective and supremely watchable. Robert Downey Jr. even managed to keep it together. And yes I have thought about writing a book, but hasn’t everyone? Hell I’ve had a ‘story’ for ages… hmmm might be a project for me? But then I can’t even manage to get writing for this site… let alone for a book – how the hell would I find the will and the time to do that? Eh!? Ohhh and …
