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.

Double S

Current state of mind: not too bad considering! S emailed us – moaning about how it was struggling to reach 13 degrees in Melbourne – bummer, it sometimes doesn’t reach 13 degrees here either – in the summer! She also asked if we had been to see S in Edinburgh, and no we haven’t, yes we feel guilty, and yes I will be phoning her tomorrow! Ohhh and must book X-Men tickets for the preview on Thursday night (and better make sure A and S are available, don’t think A would be too happy if we went without him – he’s a proper fan, I only got into to it when I saw the animated cartoon on telly, but don’t …

Lazing on

There’s SomeTHiNG nice about drinking in the afternoon. My cousin’s 18th birthday (not that she can actually be 18 already, that would make me… oh… dammit) a few beers in the afternoon, then a few beers later on. Relaxing day all around, much needed after Friday. I’m at a bit of a crossroads, and will have to wait until Monday to see how things pan out. To be honest I could do without the hassle… oh well…

Futurehead

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.

Toss a coin

Life decisions are never easy and I think the one that lays ahead will be a no-brainer, still got me thinking though. I’ve mentioned elsewhere in (on?) this site that I admire people with courage and conviction and the right amount of carefree spirit. I’m not sure if I have it, to do what I really want, would probably mean sliding down the career scale (and more importantly the salary scale).

Half-Life

I’m not a huge gamer (as is evident by my pitiful attempts in deathmatch) but it is so much fun. Admittedly getting battered to death for the 5th time by someone with a crowbar can get a bit tedious, especially when you have a BIG gun, but it is addictive – an adrenalin buzz… suddenly I can see how people get addicted to these things. Rise of the Triads and DukeNukem were previous DeathMatch games, but I never really took to them. The problem now – I will soon get hold of a gun, run down the street, probably naked, whooping and shooting innocent bystanders. I’m joking of course, I wouldn’t need to shoot them if they saw me naked, …
