(Which has now put Kish Kash in my head and on my playlist for the day, yay!)

Ordered a pint of Seize Cent Soixante Quatre last night, which came in a rather fetching glass (now if I had my new phone I’d be able to show you a photo of said glass, ohh well, maybe next week). A strange thing happened though, for some reason the glass became stuck to my hand and I ended up having to take it home with me. Can anyone say kleptomania? Well, I’ve a way to go before I can truly be called a “collector“. How many beer glasses have you acquired? And why am I fascinated by their lure?

Every morning at the station I pick up a copy of the wonderful, free, and very obviously derived from internet sources, newspaper The Metro. And every morning I pull a copy from under the topmost one which is invariably crumpled or torn. It’s a sad indication of our modern living habits that we consign such papers to the bin so readily. Sure, it’s printed on recycled paper but that’s not the point. Does ANYONE read the topmost newspaper? Is it consigned to the tortured depths of newspaper hell, and trashed WITHOUT BEING READ!!!???

Music wise, I’ve been listening to a lot of ambient, chillout, trip-hop stuff, coupled with some dance and well some stuff in the general ‘electronica’ genre. I’ve been a bit blah about a lot of the new stuff I’ve been listening to and couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t able to get enthused about anything. Then on the way to work this morning what should pop up on the iPod but Psycho Man by Black Sabbath (Danny Saber remix). Great big fuckoff guitar riffs, THAT’S what I’ve been missing. Need to dig me out some AC/DC, Sabbath, Zeppelin and Hendrix later. What else?

Was this why Gary Neville was wearing a yellow bracelet during the PSV game the other night?

And finally

“U2 have approached Scissor Sisters to support them on their as yet untitled tour next year. Bono was at Moma in New York last week watching their gig.”

It’s not the first time he’s been to see them either. Please let it be true for the Glasgow leg. There WILL be a Glasgow leg, right Mr.Bono?

“As some day it may happen that a victim must be found, I’ve got a little list–I’ve got a little list” – ????

Answers in the comment box (WITHOUT Googling!) for the source of the quote..

Now, as I’m on holiday I thought it might be fun to jot down some of the things I’m hoping to get done. Then I can re-visit the list come Monday evening and see how much of it I managed. So, without furtherado (as any more ‘ado-ing’ would only serve to further highlight that I’m kinda struggling to fill this post..)

1. Add album art to all the album I have in iTunes.
2. Add DVDs to collectorz software.
3. Finish adding books to collectorz software.
4. Fix the sidebar issue here.
5. Finish and launch Scottish Blogs.
6. Chase up FTP access for the HRL website.
7. Cut the grass.
8. Dig out new bed in front lawn, prepare for conifers and heathers (source some rocks as well).
9. Clear out garage (will include several trips to skip!).
10. Catch up on ‘recorded’ TV viewing.
11. Buy something for sister’s birthday.
12. Buy something for sister-in-law’s birthday.
13. Visit Stu and give him his birthday present from three weeks ago!
14. Start thinking about Louise’s birthday.
15. Re-design the photo gallery, and add more photos – maybe that will make you take some more.
16. Ponder this site – can I be bothered? Is it needed?

Phew.

That’ll do for the moment I think. Remember, I want answers as to whom I should be attributing the opening quote – I do know the answer, just want to see how many of you do… I’ll explain why later.

Prompted, in part by Gert, I thought I’d go a little further than check my referrers but actually go and find out something about some of the more frequent ones. Now considering the top 5 are (in no particular order):
1. “Kylie’s bum”
2. “kicking men in the nuts”
3. “Kirsty Gallacher”
4. “David Gallagher”
5. “something”

I thought I’d pick the one I knew least about and exclude the one that I really don’t want to find – can you guess which?

So without further ado I give you (and everyone who keeps appearing here looking for him): David Gallagher. An actor it seems, who I’m guessing is quite cute judging by the number of people who append “underwear pics” to their search…

Other thoughts about this little ‘experiment’ :
1. I’m the first site WITHOUT the word something in the URL to appear in the Google search for that very word, and on the first page no less.
2. Kylie’s bum is everywhere, even sitting on my desk, no not literally, I would hardly be sitting here typing this if … ahem… anyway a picture of her is…
3. We (bloggers) keep doing this, offering the search robots more reasons to find our site for things we aren’t really associated with (no matter how much we would like to be…), vicious circle or self-serving linkage? What’s it all about (Alfieee).
