Inverness

Journey up was awful. Weather cleared when we got there, boat trip was nice, but disappointing, no dolpins. Cullodeon on the way back (sobering stuff), and a lovely drive back down. Sun is shining, the weather is sweet. Much needed sleep, lie in and a lazy day. Roll on Saturday… ohh it’s Saturday already.

Weekender

Tomorrow, tomorrow, … yeuch I hate that damn kid! ANYWAY – I’m on holiday tomorrow, and Friday. Heading up to Inverness to try and see some dolphins. Friday I’m hoping to get some time to finish of the redesign (i.e. the WHOLE of Friday if past efforts are anything to go by…). Saturday/Sunday in Edinburgh… wander round IKEA pretending we’re going to buy lots of expensive things, maybe head into Edinburgh city centre and try and catch a few festival ‘things’. Then… damn better phone Sal… OK Sal, 3:04 and you weren’t in. Dropped you an email, will phone again later.

Megane

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 …

Bohemian Rhapsody

Nature commands your respect, especially when you are standing directly under a large thunderstorm. An afternoon stroll quickly turned into a drenching, accompanied by a strong wind, hail, huge drops of rain, fork and sheet lightning, thunder so loud it made you jump, and enough static electricity in the air to make strands of Louise’s sodden hair stand up. Awesome. Cold but awesome, and so unexpected that all we could do was laugh. Absolutely top weekend, quality time with my angel. Oh and we got new mobile phones, I just need to get a flowing black leather coat, and clip-on sunglasses… and Carrie Ann Moss… mmmmmmm.

X-Men

X-Men. See it. Saturday night, Guinness, and a productive day behind us. Good day, in some respects, same old crap day in others. I wish life would let you have a day where it doesn’t have to remind you and kick you. Another quiet day in prospect tomorrow, then back to work. Same old, same old. Hassles still there, not fully resolved. God I wish it was 6 months from now, at present every time we begin to see daylight, someone dumps another pile of crap on us.

Double X

Tomorrow – 7pm, Odeon Springfield Quay. X-Men. I hope it lives up to the hype, mind you there hasn’t been THAT much hype, more a simmering desire. I’m behind. No, not behind you, behind in my schedule… I need to start on Project X. Need to have another discussion with C about it first. Then I’ll need to plan it properly, then… sigh… add a few more hours to the day… hmmm it might need to go on hold until I get things sorted. That’s the thing about interesting discussions, they are always the first thing to start moving down the priority list. Project X? Hell, I had to call it something.
