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 to get more info until I get back to work… Still trying to remember why I have a bite mark on my leg…

Mantra

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 and to everyone who reads this, yes I DO know who you are, and no I don’t give a rat’s ass what you think. As I’ve said before, there is more to me than I can contain in a website. Mind you I’m once again wondering if this will continue. If it is to provide cheap entertainment and gossip, then I won’t bother. God that …

Rename

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 – Track.mp3. Help!

Let it snow

I wish it would snow. Well to be more accurate, Louise wishes it would snow. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas. This cold, wet, dreich day is typical of recent winters. We are trying to organise our Xmas activities. Xmas day – up early (after much prodding and ‘subtle’ banging about by Louise), head through to see in-laws and sister-in-law + 4 kids (probably bump into brother-in-law as well), stay there until late morning/early afternoon. Head to my parents, where my Gran will be. Stay there until late afternoon. Back to in-laws for Xmas dinner and far too much alcohol. Then Louise can drive us home, unless we sleep on a floor somewhere, which is more likely than not. I …

Almost done

Fighting off a cold. Looked at the ‘re-design’ last night, not sure about it. I’m swithering between trying to produce ‘standard-compliant’ HTML code, or cramming in as many ‘cool’ features as possible. I prefer a clean look, simple design, so I’ll probably end up going down the ‘standard’ route. Or maybe it’s because I’m finding it really hard to come up with a new look/style. Sheesh – you’d think I didn’t have anything else to worry about… Final round of Xmas shopping tonight.

Weekender

5:30 a.m. – no not just now… that was bedtime on Saturday a.m. – excellent night = beer, tequila, aftershock, southern comfort, red wine = terrible hangover. Saturday didn’t exist. Sunday is finishing well. Monday and the gossip from Friday night will be caught up on… I have a few tidbits of my own to trade, should be fun!

Aardvark

Far too focussed on work at the moment. Xmas night out is on Friday, and there is soooo much left to do on my current project. Q: Why do you call a project aardvark? A: So people will ask why….

New shoes

Damn busy day. Tonight’s project will be to finish the damn re-design! Bought some new shoes, currently digging into my heels, but I’d better get them broken in, they’ll be needed for dancing on Friday night. Xmas night out should be fun, although I’m not planning to remember much. I’ve written Saturday off already.
