Promises, promises. Stagnant is probably the wrong word, but that’s what it feels like. Same old, same old. Get up, go to work, go home, have dinner, watch TV (or sit at the PC), go to bed. Not been to T’ai Chi yet, nor found anywhere to play basketball. Have started playing 5-a-side weekly, but…Continue reading Down


Movie info from IMDB Movie reviews from Metacritic Nice pace, intelligent handling of the ‘issue’ behind the story. Acting was solid by all main characters. If you enjoyed American Beauty you should enjoy this. If you want an exciting film go elsewhere. If you want to be treated like an intelligent adult who doesn’t need…Continue reading Traffic


It’s there, sitting underneath the surface, never too far out of reach. A friend’s situation brings it back, but it is less painful this time, and I know it will continue to fade, to become a dusty memory. Each iteration dulling the anguish, drizzling out the flame. I don’t cling to it, it is not…Continue reading Reminder


Finished work on 23rd December 2000, back to work today 8th January 2001. It’s strange how quickly we humans adjust to our situations. Just started work after two weeks off. Already I’m back in ‘work’ mode. I had managed to do very little work during my holiday (I know, that sounds odd), and I was…Continue reading Adjustment


Strange, cathartic kinda mood. Same every year really. Lunch with friends on Tuesday then braved the Sales (and no I wasn’t one of the nutters waiting for the 5 a.m. opening), quiet day yesterday (read a book… that’s it) and starting to think about 2001. Resolutions – nah.. still trying to get my head round…Continue reading Ahead


Too much food. The right amount of booze – a relaxed Christmas Day. Saw my Gran today, it’s amazing how many years a walking stick adds. She never looked like a ‘granny’ before.

Christmas Eve

The calm before the storm? It’s Christmas Eve and we’re in that funny period between the build-up and the day itself. Quiet anticipation. Friday night, Xmas lunch at work, wine, beer, dancing… top night! Mind you it always ends the same way… kinda flat. Still managed to get some exclusive gossip, but won’t be able…Continue reading Christmas Eve


Once upon a time there was a guy. He put together a website. He posted some stuff about himself, some rants, and other bits and bobs. So far the story has no end. So far… Stuck in a kind of limbo – loads of ideas, yet keep getting pulled back to handle the present. Oh…Continue reading Mantra


Re-design took a step forward (at last). The project I was working on will finally be completed tomorrow. Which gives me 2 days to do what I had planned to do in 5… nothing new there then. File-renaming. I want to rename my MP3s. I currently have Track – Artist.mp3. I would like Artist –…Continue reading Rename
