I’m sitting in the midst of a VERY tidy office. Some shopping this morning, and then home to be inside whilst the heavens opened. Yeuch. Bonus: Didn’t have to cut the grass. Mind you as it now resembles more of a field of buttercups maybe that’s not such a good thing…< But we did get...

As Richard Bloomfield points out, Scottish politicians will soon have a two month ‘recess’. In most other jobs, two months would be unheard of, so I’m guessing that whatever it is they spend their time doing can’t be THAT important or crucial. After all if it was, they wouldn’t be able to take so much…

At home. Getting loads done. Spiderman (at last) tonight. Loads to do tomorrow (cut grass, get haircut, tidy office). More later. Maybe.

Updated the Visit page again, removed a few, added a few, hoped to not cause offense by placing site X after site Y, you know the kinda thing… If I’ve missed you, or deleted you, or you think I’m missing out (the sites listed are my ‘regulars’) let me know. Well I would’ve updated it…

There are a few smart cards here in the UK, but none have really grabbed the limelight. This story about Hong Kong Embracing the Octopus Card is fascinating, but somehow I don’t think it will catch on here in the UK. You can almost hear the whiney voiced objections from differing transport companies “But our…

I’ve got a few thoughts whizzing round my head about the piece I just read over at Leaking Brain Fluid – “She, The Dreamer”. I’ll try and capture a few and write them down later, but for the meantime go and read it yourself..

Whatever happened to the Animaniacs? They were a breath of fresh air a few years back introducing many new characters, none of which really took off. My mate has a few of their videos, hmmm might see if they are in the current HMV sale! My favourite characters from the series? They’re dinky, they’re Pinky…

How do you use your ‘fob’? Hmm maybe I should explain, or better still I’ll leave it to Davezilla. This site should come with some sort of warning, after all laughing so hard that hot coffee comes out your nose CAN’T be good. I guess you could consider that a warning then…

Before I head off to count sheep (I’m not in the slightest bit tired but I’ll try) I just want to mention Tom Cruise. I live with a fan of his (OK scarily obsessed weirdo), and we found ourselves watching Liquid News to catch him at the UK premiere of his new film Minority Report…

Leanne is looking very nice these days, Chapter 2 of the naked novel is now online (via blogatelle), the stranger is quoting U2, Pinky has redecorated, and is enjoying the story from Murphy and the Bricks, based on a poem by Pat Cooksey ‘The Sick Note‘, Jennie has found her dream job (and works ‘ubergeek’…

The Divine Comedy

No, not Dante’s. There are only a few bands of which I own all their material (album wise). Queen, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Sheryl Crow, are the only ones I can remember off to the top of my head.. (possibly Alanis Morrisette and Mary J.Blige). I’m one short for the Divine Comedy (currently listening…

The Way to Happiness

If you can get through the slightly cloying reasoning, and somewhat overstated and over-simplified reasoning, The Way to Happiness International seems to be on the right track… I think.. “Cultural decay is rampant, and no city or town in the world is immune to the myriad of social problems that arise in the wake of…

OK, been here since 7:30 a.m. and it’s a straight day, no meetings, head down, work to do (and I’ve got a deadline as well). I came in here early so I could work in peace and quiet. Time: 8:06 a.m. Work done: Zero. Hmmmm.

Interesting guy, his music’s OK and I kinda think that most of the press around him is mis-directed. But he does look creepy. Who am I talking about? Marilyn Manson of course. (via Neoflux)
