Strange week – kinda floated through it. Accomplished most of what I meant to. Most, not all – I’ve really gone off the boil as far as the design aspect of this site is concerned (hey who said I was never on!). Still working at it. No Zeldman to ease me into the day, no…

I was in a church, yesterday, for the first time in, oohhh…4 years? longer? I felt very hypocritical, but was glad I went – it reminded me why it leaves such a strange taste in my mouth. Now, don’t get me wrong (again…), I have amazing respect for anyone who can devote themselves to a…

I love this state of mind. It’s Wednesday and I’m not quite sure the date. It’s amazing how easily I’ve slipped out of work mode. I suppose sitting about doing nothing is helping though. Mucho relaxo. I’ll be working on the new design this afternoon, and would imagine it will be done for the end…

Once again it is the other stories that capture the memory. Derek Redmond being helped to hobble to finish his heat, Muhammad Ali collecting his gold (again), and Eric the Eel. A man who had never swum 100 metres and had never seen a 50m pool. 16,000 people watched him ‘race’ and win his heat….

Sore leg – no I mean really really sore. Knee in calf muscle sore. Limping heavily sore. Already phoned doctor sore (which, as Louise will testify, means it must be really really sore…). Still I’m on holiday next week. No not going anywhere, but I am hoping to get the re-design finished. Mind you after…

Feeling decidely… different over the last couple of days. Difficult to put my finger on what it is though. Maybe I’m being inspired by the Olympics, all that achievement and glory.

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…

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…

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……

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…

“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…

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…

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…

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,…
