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

Reading time: 1 min
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

Reading time: 1 min
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).

Health

Which is more important to you – your body or your mind? If you had the choice, how which would you sacrifice? Would you sacrifice your imagination, intelligence, sense of logic for the ability to walk down the street, to run along a beach, to climb the highest peak and admire the view? Bye bye Mind. So you can walk, run, climb, swim, and more. You climb that mountain, and stand astride the top, and survey the world beneath you. You swim in the bluest oceans, diving to the coral reefs below to be with the exotic fishes, in the warm currents under the water. But what kind experience would it be if the mind was gone, no emotion to …
