Ahead

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…

Christmas

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…

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…

Rename

Reading time: < 1 min

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 –…

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…

Finally!

Xmas shopping finished. It’s official.

Almost done

Reading time: < 1 min

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…

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…

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

Reading time: < 1 min

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.

Gingerbread Men

Xmas tree is up. Gingerbread men are cooking in the oven, and I’m supposed to be working on finishing out an MRD and FS. It’s Saturday afternoon, it’s cold and wet, and I just want to snuggle up in a warm cosy place. Been a mad, bad, hectic week. Lots of decisions and stress. Someone…

Jealous? Never

Happy Birthday Gran! Yikes it’s December on Friday, and as I live with a Crimbo Nutter that means our tree will be going up (Yes I know the whole 2 weeks before thing…). Still it does mean that a holiday is in sight, but as I’ve just pulled together a list of documents I need…

Evolution

Reading time: 2 mins

The human species is evolving. But into what? Recent propositions have detailed a system where you can order products that you see when watching a film or tv programme. Product placement is now commonplace in major blockbusters, so now when you think – hey cool phone! – all you will need to do is push…
