Throbbing

Happy Birthday to the Big Chuffer! I hope the coming year is as good as the last one. Stirling was OK. Hungover. Still. Bummer. Mind you at least I didn’t run ‘over’ a car… tut tut tut… LOL. Holiday in a week’s time. A week of no work. In fact probably a week of not much at all. Might try and do some exercise, and I’ll be making the most of the last few days of the 24/7 internet access. Hey, I might even get the re-design finished, and start on… ohhh what’s the point. I might do SomeTHiNG, I might not.

Open mouth, insert foot

Foot in mouth disease is a terrible thing. Thankfully this time it wasn’t me, but it’s always worrying when someone says SomeTHiNG without (obviously) thinking about it. Result – one upset person, one conversation and more than likely no improvement. We’ll see if any effect is filtered down to me, but it has been a long problem that is only gradually improving, no names, no pack-drill, but they should know better, and other people have mentioned it as well. Ahh the joys of office politics. Was that cryptic enough? LOL Progress at work, can’t say what yet though. Re-design on going. Stirling tonight. Might finish the design, but this is highly dependant on my hangover…

Fiasco

Survived footie. Night out (company thing) in Stirling, should be fun, haven’t been drunk for ages! I’ve downloaded NextStart in another step to finding a system I can use – very customisable, skinnable etc etc. Might even lead to me rekindle my interest in design software skins, but not until I’ve finished the website re-design… The internet fiasco in the UK continues, my unmetered 24/7 access ends soon (end of month), and I’ll probably switch to BT’s evening and weekend deal. I’ve hunted about, but looks like I’m going to have to rely on the regulatory body to do SomeTHiNG! Hewlett Packards current adverts over here make me laugh – a newspaper straight to your PC, presuming you can afford …

Catchup

Finishing post in sight… maybe… the re-design deadline is the end of the month… LOL So, anyone got any petrol? Scary stuff this, and beginning to get out of control, I’ve read a couple of reports of ambulances without petrol, not good. On a lighter note – MSN Messenger has enabled me to have a quick ‘chat’ with a good friend in Oz. I knew I would find a good use for this technology (other than the illegal acquisition of software and music… kidding… emm, honest!). I must start exercising, had a couple of weeks off and I just know that footie will be painful this week.

Petrol

“That is not the way to make policy in Britain and as far as I am concerned it never will be.” – Tony Blair. Totally agree Tony. Well said. We can’t have a government that is dictated to, that’s the entire point in voting, elections and the democratic process. Slight problem though, aren’t the people we voted for supposed to act on our behalf? Aren’t they supposed to listen to what we say, take it on board and at least consider it? Mr.Blair’s reaction seems rather childish. He is already lifting what is a simple campaign, based around one simple idea (we pay too much for our petrol) into the political arena, and trying to stamp his authority on the …

Weird Samba

Brazil. The film. Strange. Very, very strange. It’s age is obvious, but that aside it is entirely uninvolving. It’s not the most painful movie I’ve seen but more of a time-filler than anything. Ben-Hur is next on the list. Quiet weekend. Half-Life practice soon. Then more time mucking about in DreamWeaver. Shouldn’t we be doing more? Yes, usual constraints are stopping us though… and once again we didn’t win the lottery. Sigh. 😉

Flirt

Flirting is fun. Hell, I don’t need to tell you that! But why do we do it? I’m very happily married (I love her), so why do I flirt? Initial thoughts of those who have not adopted the flirting doctrine (if it moves, flirt with it) is to try and categorise flirters by saying “You’re actually cheating on your partner, not physical, but mentally”…eh…Excuse me? Admittedly men are worse than women when it comes to ‘looking’, as in we make it more obvious, but both sexes do it, committed or not, and that is not flirting, that’s looking/gawking/staring (delete as applicable). The reason I flirt is because it can be fun. It is important to note here that it is …

Apathy is…

Sigh… apathy is a terrible terrible thing. I just don’t care. No not about you, I care about you. Holiday required methinks, then again a change is as good as a holiday – what kinda change? Sigh. Another thought – I really must start being more productive with this space. Mustn’t I? Actually hold on, no I don’t. This is mine, not yours. I can do whatever they hell I like! Sigh… apathy sucks… sigh

Appendix

Re-design a go-go… well not really, but I’m gonna start from scratch – again! Have started writing again as well, sort of… in my head I have a few ideas, will jot them down and flesh them out if I can. I’ve also started design of ANOTHER website for my professional side. I have loads of documents, links, files etc which I’ve always meant to put somewhere useful – this way I don’t need to worry about losing something from my PC. Working title – Appendix. Whaddya think?
