Trying to write an entry for the Last Laugh contest on BBC3 at the moment. Basically, they have several scripts half-written, and you have to complete the story. I have picked my story, and come up with what appears to me to be a plausible and suitable ending. I just need to write it and make it funny now. I suspect that is the trickier bit.
Getting back into the way of walks in the evening with S again, now that the weather is improving (HA, except for the past two days weather, although we still managed a walk last night). Last week we had a beautiful long walk down by the river, very pretty, and now that the clocks have gone back, once it finishes raining we can manage longer still we hope. Looking forwards to the first evening this year we spend wandering along the Thames in lazy daylight.
In other news, iPod, still good, DS decidedly super
Well it is not, but I am off tomorrow. And Monday. For no good reason, which suits me fine. Going to
catch up on some reading for work, and generally chill. Oh, and garden too. Got things to start planting,
which is a nice position to be in after a couple of months of almost solely bagging up crap. Still got plenty
of that to do too, but it will be nice to break it up. Have a small rosemary bush, garlic, and several herbs and plants to plant.
Very close to finishing the mass copying project that is getting all our cds onto my ipod. Think I am on the home straight now. Would like to move onto copying some videos onto DVD next, would love to get rid of a load of my vhs tapes, and hide/sell/throw out my video. Might even get a little of that done this long weekend.
So I am now a fully-fledged member of the ipod community. It is a fantastic bit of kit, once you’ve
had it a few days you wonder why you haven’t had one all your life. Am carrying around my entire record
collection on something slightly bigger than my mobile. Very happy with it.
Had a course on Friday on HTMLDB, which is a web-based development suite for Oracle. I have been
using it for almost a year now, but I had to figure it all out for meself, so I was quite untutored in it.
Feel a lot more confident about it now, can see some new areas where I want to use it now. Also want to get our system upgraded to the latest version, as they have added a lot into it, some new things I would really like to start using.
