So off to london I go on Sunday. I may have broadband in my hotel room, depends how much it cost to use it as to whether this gets updated next week. We shall see…
Feeling completely and utterly friday today, in my minds eye I am already sat in a wine bar sipping chilled wine. Not that many hours til I am.
Strange long week, I don’t think I am used to a five day week, think I’ve had a couple of short weeks lately. Ah well no work next week other than course.
Given the manhunt controversy in the papers, I’d like to see everyone who claims that video games cause violent thoughts and behaviour rounded up and beheaded.
At the moment I am listening to a playlist on my mp3 player of about 2000 songs shuffled up. Its great, but it can catch you quite unawares when you have had two Fall tracks in a row, and all of a sudden a disco classic kicks in.
Did actually mow the lawn, which suprised even myself frankly. And repotted two cactii, so they have more room to grow. My garden looks bad, but my cactii are cool.
Have lost a very small amount of weight (pound or two at the moment). I have changed my eating habits somewhat, and started walking back from work most days. Shame not too in this lovely weather. I am determined to keep it up, but I am coming to the evil but inevitable conclusion that I need to do something else in the way of exercise as well. Actually, after fighting the garden last night (it was somewhat overgrown) I do think that gardening is no bad thing, but I need something a bit more than that. I may have to look at my bike at long long last.
And then think about actually riding the bloody thing.
Got some cheap geektoys yesterday. Bluetooth dongle (easy at the back there) so I can link my phone to my laptop and swap stuff. Have thus been downloading lousy midi versions of songs to annoy people. Doing well so far, have Blue Monday and Rappers Delight, plus awful versions of Back in Black and the theme from Mash. Must see if I can find a program to create midi from mp3.
Also got a cd player for S which is missing several vital pieces, and thus far my communications with the company I bought it from have involved them reading my e-mail, picking out a random word, and answering something to do with that word, rather than actually reading the e-mail. I love that.
Have full intent to cut the lawn tonight. Re-potted a cactus last night (I live life on the edge).
Have just seen this, its a redesign of the Nintendo DS Looks bloody lovely frankly. And it will have a new PSO game on it. And they are doing a new PSO game for probably all the consoles 🙂 These are all very good things
Avebury was great. I don’t know how many times I’ve been there, probably around 8 or 9 times now. But I love it so, always chills my mind a little. Good time with my mates after too, so all in all a good weekend.
Oh, no pics though, should have taken something appropriate really.
Off to London next week on a course, need to get myself sorted out for that, plan my time. Not sure when this will get updated, but hopefully there will be a larger update of all I wrote when I get back
More coffee? Why thank you
Oh friday, the precusor to a three-day weekend, how I love you so. Bit fuzzy round the edges due to my wife’s encouragement for another G&T last night (its always someone else’s fault, never your own). But I’m fine, I will survive, I’m back from outer space etc.
(reads last bit back, worries a little that I might not be as fine as I thought). More coffee, lets try that as well.
Getting there now, almost sane enough for the rest of the day. Things to do, things to learn. Will hopefully be figuring out some graphic modules in Perl today. Well hopeful in the way that I need to figure it out, rather than a burning desire to do so.
Hopefully off to Avebury tomorrow, looking forwards to that, haven’t been for too long. Love it there, one of Britain’s most beautiful places for me. More pics of stones I should reckon.
