Nice quiet weekend, and a nice quiet week (so far). Caught up with some friends, survived a less than wild night on Friday, and hoping to do some Xmas shopping tomorrow (urgh). How are you?

The weekend looms, a night out, some drinks, a hangover. I love Fridays.

Netball

A girl’s game. Yet somehow I’ve been roped into playing at lunchtime today. Not quite sure what to expect…. Without getting into specifics, it’s always nice when someone else holds up there hand and says – “sorry, I made a booboo..” It’s twice as sweet when it’s the taxman, and he includes a cheque! Mind…

I ache. As usual I did too much in the gym on Wednesday, so my shoulders and arms are stiff and sore. The pain in my legs is nothing new and I’m used to it. We play football every Thursday (should I say soccer? Hell no!) and every Friday I’m stiff – is regular exercise…

Startup

I’ve always been able to make the separation between a business decision and a personal decision. I’m pretty good at stepping back and seeing the bigger picture. It’s one thing being passionate and ‘caring’ about your work, it’s another to close your mind and concentrate your focus wholly on it. I’ve found myself more and…

Twenty Species We May Lose in the Next 20 Years Amongst the talk of using science to play God, surely we should be content with our offspring as they are naturally. After all, our species isn’t threatened with extinction… yet.

Kinda cloudy this morning, I preferred yesterday’s blue skys… mind you I prefer this mornings 7 degrees to yesterdays 3! I like this time of year, the trees are turning, and you can start wearing those big comfy jumpers… drink hot chocolate… and take long hot showers whilst trying to steam the wallpaper off… yeah…

I normally miss them – TV moments… Judy Finnegan provided last nights eyeful. No more need be said methinks 😉 I’m lacking inspiration at the moment. Started playing about with a WinAmp skin, end result less than ordinary… same happened for NextStart and WindowBlinds. I’m now wondering about the new website design… *sighs*

Theroux

Louis Theroux, Monday nights, BBC2. Watch this man. This is the second series I have watched. Last night the programme was looking at the Boers, there desire for their own state, and what the underlying thoughts were. Very interesting, and ultimately very depressing. There are still a lot of closed minds, and isolated figures in…

Ahhh ANOTHER quiet weekend – really must start doing SomeTHiNG else than go visit parents, and potter about round the house. Mind you I did get some work done. Missed the OJ Simpson documentary during the week, heard it was a real eye opener (the man was innocent apparently). Although as it focussed round the…

When will I realise I’m an adult? Yesterday Zeldman gave us a link, but warned that it contained bad language and that we had better check with our parents before viewing it. I had the phone in my hand before I realised what I was doing: “Hi Mum, it’s me – there’s this link on…

My ISP (LineOne) recently ended the payment scheme I was using. I had 24/7 access for £5 a month. They are now offering LineOne SurfTime (run of the back of the BT SurfTime package) for £9.99 a month for off-peak access only. Unfortunately my local exchange is not yet equipped to handle SurfTime so it…
