Still really tired.. permanently – mind you I’ve got Thursday, Friday off work this week. Heading up to Inverness (for a suprise for Louise), and we might be heading through to Edinburgh at some point over the weekend.. hear that Sal? (BTW – how do you spell her name again?) Had a good weekend. Bought a NEW car (brand new – 19 miles on clock), got TPM on video as well as The Third Man, Ben-Hur, and Brazil (at last). Now just have to find time to watch them. Also got Pearl Jam’s recent album, pretty good, bit samey though, although I don’t think I was in the right mood to listen to it. Ohh and re-design hell continues. Maybe …

Interesting discussion the other night, we’ll see what comes of it. Interesting discussion this morning, we’ll see what comes of it. To clear a couple of things up – Alec Guinness had 8 characters, the re-design is still going, sleep patterns matter (although I’ve been ignoring them), and I HAVE been writing stuff for this site, they will be posted once the re-design has been done.

Boycott the Pump

Well we’ve done our bit for the petrol boycott – have you? Tonight, tonight (Smashing Pumpkins, WAY before Phil Collins (or was it Genesis)) I will continue the oft mentioned re-design. Although as I didn’t get to sleep until 1 a.m. it might be a bit of a struggle…

Tell me why

Wouldn’t it be better not to discuss a forthcoming re-design and just do it (tm I think…?) a la http://www.kottke.org. Also – why do I think my site needs to be ‘cool’ and ‘design-ey’. Hmmmm. It’s Monday, I could tell when I woke up and the hassles at work only confirmed it for me…oh and it rained.

Organic design

Dammit, dammit, dammit. Stop start re-design… to the extent where I started to wonder if I could build that in as a feature… a kind of organic website, constantly under design. Then I realised I’m too lazy. There is something comforting about Sundays, the church bell chiming the hour is a nice touch, hopefully when we buy somewhere we will still be close enough to hear it. I also like the fact that we can sit about semi-dressed all day, watching telly, chilling out, kinda like a mini-holiday. Ohhh and hats off to Zeldman, made me realise how lucky and blessed I am. Our thoughts are with Joan (and Bathead).

McBeal appeal. Just finished watching it, I still don’t know why it hits home, every week there is something that jars me and I think “Damn that’s right!”. They are beginning to inspire me to write some stuff (after a healthy absence). Oh, still trying to get my re-direct changed, and the re-design is still on – it will be a pretty radical departure from the current, white, grey and blue, but you’ll have to wait and see (as will I as I haven’t decided what to do with it yet!).

Bleuch

That’s it, I’m gonna stop surfing (the web, not the water…not that I have ever tried surfing (on water, I do surf the web)). I’m trying to redesign this site – ignoring the fact that I haven’t written anything for it in over a month (I don’t count this stuff, hopefully neither do you) – and I keep getting great ideas, but I still look at my site and go… BLEUCH. Is it just me? Does everyone rate their own sites the same way? Is every other website better?

Re-design

Reading time: 1 min
Re-design, improve, change. Kinda goes with my current thoughts on life, but I will no doubt press ahead anyway. So expect some changes, I would love to tell you what I have planned, but I don’t know, and won’t know until I’m finished. Hopefully something a little bit more dynamic, a little ‘cooler’…a bit more, ahhh hell you know, don’t you? Started reading books again (well I have plans to read more anyway). That may be something I will feature more here (note to self: list books I have still to read).
