Where Are You, Why Do You Hide?

I must apologise for the lack of updates. The reasons are manifold.

  • Extremely stressful move to new flat
  • I have broken Blosxom [edit: fixed now]
  • After move, PC has not been set up yet [edit: set up now]
  • I haven’t had time
  • The dog ate it

All of these things will be chronicled in detail as soon as possible. Please just bear with me.

The first thing to do is get the new place sorted out. We’ve already painted the bedroom floorboards black, so thats a start. As the rest of it gets sorted, then I can string the phone line through and get the PC set up.

Then it’s a case of re-installing blosxom with a fresh copy and hoping it all still works.

Your patience is appreciated.

Me A To Z (That’s Zed By The Way)

A – Age: 32

B – Band listening to right now: Orbital, Blue Album

C – Career future: More engineering I think

D – Dad’s name: Brian

E – Easiest person to talk to: Robin

F – Favorite song: ‘True Faith’ by New Order

G – Gummy Bears or Gummy Worms: Bears, although Smarties take the cake.

H – Hometown: Bedford, UK

I – Instruments: Can’t play any musical instruments, except things like triangle and kettle drum.

J – Job: Consultant Engineer (I love typing that)

K – Kids: No. (I was tempted to type ‘Probably’ or ‘Almost Certainly’ but that would have been a crass thing to type, and unoriginal)

L – Longest car ride ever: Ferrying a friend up to Glasgow from London for a performance. Quite far in the UK.

M – Mom’s name: Norma

N – Number of people you slept with: A few, not many.

P – Phobias: Sharks, spiders. The sharks thing is more about floating at the top of a deep dark void, not knowing what’s below. The spiders thing is just about their legs, and their speed.

Q – Quote: “Which one of you bitches wants to dance?” – Dylan Moran in ‘Black Books’, to a group of football thugs.

R – Reason to smile: Simple things. Home, partner, friends, tea, plain chocolate digestives.

V – Vegetable you hate: Sprouts.

W – Worst habit: Picking my nose.

X – X-rays you’ve had: Teeth.

Y – Yummy food: Spaghetti Bolognese.

Z – Zodiac sign: Gemini apparently. I hate when quizzes ask this like it’s as meaningful as age or gender. It’s insulting, like assuming someone is religious. Fuck off, is what I’m basically saying here.
