Laws of Nature: A Skeptic’s Guide (Skeptical Inquirer September 2000) – I know it must be time for bed when I start to understand this kinda stuff, i.e. my brain is already numb and doesn’t question half of the words used in this…

K10K – 100th Issue. OK so I’m a bit late in posting this…but I’ve spent all day re-visiting the front page for all that random splash goodness! YUM!

Dammit

Reading time: < 1 min

Was planning on getting to bed early. Forgot to wash my footie stuff from last night…dammit, dammit, dammit. I’m in an unusually crap, narky mood this evening. Not sure why, although I could pitch a few hundred reasons, I think I’m just in a crap mood because I want to be in one. Sounds odd,…

speechtherapy Read this several times. Six, welcome. I too went through similar (though not as public). I am pessismistic, argumentative, inquisitive by nature. I’ve learnt to recognise when I am being so and, if I feel I should, deal with it – you gotta remember that pessimism tempers optimism giving a better sense of reality….

Been listening to a track by Bjork. It’s on one of those free CDs I got with the latest issue of Empire. Brass band playing, nice drop beat going on. Wish I could remember it’s name. Jury service is over. Trial was postponed. What a colossal waste of money (and time). Still means I can…

Didn’t sleep well (and didn’t finish working until 1:30 a.m.). Checking my emails, and finishing up a few bits and bobs – however I know fine well it will be at least midnight before I turn in. Interesting report on ‘alternative’ medicines. Alternative to western culture that is, the majority of the established medicines have…

Movie info from IMDB Movie reviews from Metacritic Nice pace, intelligent handling of the ‘issue’ behind the story. Acting was solid by all main characters. If you enjoyed American Beauty you should enjoy this. If you want an exciting film go elsewhere. If you want to be treated like an intelligent adult who doesn’t need…

Tattoo

Traffic, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Unbreakable, Vertical Limit? We need to get to the cinema more often. I’ve also had my interest in tattoos reopened (yes I have a couple). Been researching the origins and ‘classic’ designs – no not LOVE and HATE on the knuckles – some of them are gorgeous and fit nicely…

Reminder

It’s there, sitting underneath the surface, never too far out of reach. A friend’s situation brings it back, but it is less painful this time, and I know it will continue to fade, to become a dusty memory. Each iteration dulling the anguish, drizzling out the flame. I don’t cling to it, it is not…

Gossip?

Friday night, beer, dancing = groggy head, sore legs and FUN!. Mind you that might have been something to do with the ratio of males to females (not to mention the ‘attributes’ of the females themselves…). Also picked up some more tidbits of gossip, I would love to share them with you, but you never…

Sing when it hurts

“Like a broken arrow, I’ll catch the tail wind and draw the clouds, burning sugar, as black as smoke, closing walls; I open my heart. She sings when she hurts. It’s good to sink deep inside, to my only touchstone. She’s a friend in the dark, my strength, my memories. She delights in torture, but…
