Too much

Reading time: 2 mins

I’ve had enough. So has Louise. We generally reach this point at the same time, which is quite handy, although if I’m honest I possibly reach it before she does, I just ignore it for longer (or maybe she does that too). Tonight the house is GETTING IT BIG TIME. I should probably explain what…

UPDATE: Should be fixed now. Many, many, MANY thanks to Jann for pointing out the bleedin’ obvious. 😉 So it looks like the main screw up in my migration to WordPress has, somehow, been an alteration in how this page displays in IE6 (and possibly lower). Buggeration. How is that possible? I’m using the same…

It happens in an instant, you walk round the corner and bump into a rather attractive lady. In a split second you both mumble apologises and a split second later you both realise you vaguely know each other. One more split second passes and you realise that you still haven’t phoned her like you promised…

Hello? Is this on? Well looks like all is working, so HELLO! Welcome to my new WordPress powered site. I’d expect a couple of days of minor tweaking but hopefully you won’t/haven’t noticed a thing. All in all it was pretty darn easy – once I’d figured out how to get the old Blogger posts…

85 not out

Reading time: < 1 min

Officially it’s tomorrow, but Happy Birthday to my Gran. 85 years young and delighted with the ‘vibrator’ she got as a present (it’s a foot massager, really..). I’m slightly hungover so it must’ve been a good night last night, and no, I don’t want to talk about the rugby. This may, or may not, be…

Edinburgh, Saturday the 11th December, venue to be confirmed. Be there or.. be somewhere else but I’d really like it if you were there. I’ve corrected the date. Apologies for any confusion. It is definitely on the Saturday. The 11th. NOT the 12th.

Philosophical

Reading time: < 1 min

Today I am wearing my “Nothing is any good if other people like it” t-shirt (scroll to foot of page). But what type of statement is that? It’s not ironic, but I’m certain it’s more than sarcasm. Any high-brow readers care to try and classify it? (I’m still coffee-less so will try myself later on).

SLR-less shyness

Late-night shopping last night, so Louise came into Glasgow to meet me after work (she was held up because the police had closed London Road, but NOT because of anything traffic related. So why? Heard nothing else about this but we did spot three police officers stopping random cars near George Square, most odd. I…

This post may not interest you in the slightest, the main point is that you shouldn’t notice a thing but it may be quiet here for a few days in the near future. I think, after four and a half years, through Blogger Pro, the Google buyout, the redesign and all the early day issues,…

Bugger this

Reading time: < 1 min

Blogger is playing up. Again. Such is the price for using an American based service it seems, every morning is the same. Come 4pm GMT the site zips along like nobodies business, leading me to one of two conclusions. 1. Our American friends are finally ‘getting’ with the whole Kyoto thing and switching off lights…

Mad busy

Reading time: < 1 min

I’m far too busy to even considering posting something, let alone spend the time thinking up something coherent. Admittedly it would make a nice change for me to actually THINK before posting, but hey, why change the habit of the last four or so years? So yes, very busy, working. Lots of working and business…

MPs call for Blair’s impeachment. Slightly apathetic towards this until I realised that it would mean John “The Boxer” Prescott would be running the country. Long live the king!

You may, or may not, recall that I found a certain recent advert quite funny (the rest of this post won’t make sense if you haven’t read it). In a moment of perfect timing, I was just laughing my head off about it, sharing the story with some colleagues and wondering why one of them…
