One for my Dad

Reading time: 2 mins

Apparently I’ve not been blogging much. My Dad commented on this last night when I phoned so I thought I’d post a wee update for all my tens of avid readers. Not much is happening. I’m working. I have no internets. I will not have internets until November 23rd. In a royal cock up between…

Psychological Music

Reading time: 2 mins

I have a LOT of music. I buy a lot, borrow some, obtain others (hey, would you pass up a 4GB download of every “Now” album.. yeah I know, I should’ve too). The one thing I’ve always had a problem with is tracking my short-term listening habits. I tend to buy music in spurts. I’ll…

Questions Answered #11

In a desperate effort to gain some weird form of validation, I stole an idea for a blog post and begged my readers to ask me a question. And they did. The buggers. Now I have to answer them. Adrian asks “Why I’m glad I’m not single”. I’ll presume he’s wanting ME to explain why…

Nine Years

Reading time: < 1 min

Nine years is a long time. Not as long as ten, as short as four or as “itchy” as seven, but it’s a nice length of time. After nine years you know a person pretty well. You know when she’s mad, you know when she’s happy, you know when you should stop being cheeky, and…

Happy, content

To borrow a phrase from a recent post of Tom’s (a very interesting post it is as well) I guess that the tagline for this site should really ALWAYS be “it’s like thinking in public”. I’ve been blogging for years, had a “homepage” before that and could bore you silly whilst trying to score silly…

The one thing that always fascinates me about other people is that their opinions can be so wrong. Of course when I say wrong I mean ‘different from mine’ but it amounts to the same thing. I have fairly set opinions on most things, and absolutely no position on many others – either through lack…

IT WORKS!!!

Reading time: < 1 min

FINALLY. Many many MANY thanks to Adrian and Jann for their sage advice and time. I tried Jann’s advice first – as it was the simplest, namely adding <br style=”clear: both;” /> right before the closing DIV tag. Whaddya know, it worked straight away. I’m not sure which I’m more relieved about, the fact it…

Mispelled

You know those words you can’t type properly, the ones you ALWAYS mis-spell. I have a couple, surprise not surpise, policy not policay, and business not bsiness (I’m sure I’ve many many more… ohh there’s another one – many not mahy). Anyway, I’m currently writing a manual dealing with bsiness business policay policy objects. It’s…

I had thought of 23 different things to post here by 8.30am this morning. I’ve forgotten each one. Instead I’ll give you a transcript (a small snippet) of a discussion I’ve just had on IM (the names have been changed to protect the innocent – I’ve ALWAYS wanted to say that… hmmmm what ever happened…

Survived

Reading time: < 1 min

Well a second game of 5-a-side has been survived. With no cramps, just a bit of a niggle from Tuesday but I can live with that. Firstly, thanks to all for your suggestions, I was aware of most of them but the potassium and calcium ones were new. Anyway, I had a packet of salt…

The Big Easy returns

Speakeasy appears to be a blog again. This is good and bad news. Good in that it was one of the first blogs I really got into, bad in that the old style magazine format is gone. Either way, reading what Carey writes is ALWAYS good. Listening to: Radiohead – No Surprises

Sport 24 MondayWell it certainly was a big sporting weekend. But that’s enough about that… Did you watch it? What do you think? Who is the bad guy? What is the Secretary of State up to? Can we trust George this time around? How hot is Jack’s daughter now… oops.. sorry true colours and all…

Spider AlertMy spider sense went off the scale with this one (OK, I’ve ALWAYS wanted to be Spiderman, but I digress). Fascinating pictures, well worth a quick look, even if it is through the gap between your fingers… “When you see horror movies with spider web festooned from this place to that place and so…
