Seems To Be The Hardest Word

Tuesday April 17, 2007

To all the women who’ve ever had anything to do with me, I’d just like to say:

It seems clear to me that I have expressed a degree of regret that can be equated with an apology

I Laughed Out Loud

Friday July 14, 2006

At this which, if you you know me, very rarely happens. It’s from a blog called The Sneeze. I like it and this too.

Camera

Monday July 10, 2006

I’ve lost my digital camera (in a rental car in Bilbao if you must know). It was a couple of years old, so probably the right time for an upgrade. Any recommendations for an inexpensive replacement? It’s gotta be small, but functional. A bit like me.

My Gravy

Thursday July 6, 2006

My mojo’s (definition 1, if you don’t mind) gone missing recently. When I say recently I mean the last 4 months, unsurprisingly coinciding with my return to the UK. It’s manifesting itself at work and at play and 3 months without a mojo is a bit boring. Luckily work is going great (although I’ve said that before, haven’t I?) but if it weren’t for that there’d be nuttin goin on but the rent. I’m putting this down to a period of readjustment after an unusually hedonistic 18 months. And no sex. Mojo means gravy in Spanish…go figure.

Isn’t it a bit ridiculous that we’re celebrating the one year anniversary of London winning the 2012 Olympic bid? Thought so.

Watching the second semi-final last night got me really depressed. Not because it wasn’t a particuarly good game, which it wasn’t, but more because it was a reminder of how average the teams were in this World Cup and what a great opportunity there was for us to win the thing with our squad which is genuinely world-class. Fact.

Remember that Senator who described the Internet as a ‘series of tubes’? Here’s the audio.

A Funny Thing

Tuesday July 4, 2006

I said a Funny Thing the other day. I said to someone, after pulling back on a commitment to them they were rather impressed with:

‘I’m sorry, I rather over-extended the arm of friendship there’

Oh dear. See what happens when I don’t have any sex? I’m sorry, I’ll keep trying though.

Ever wondered what the Internet actually IS? ‘Series of tubes‘ apparantly.

Just about to buy this.

Hello World.

Tuesday July 4, 2006

Damn, I was going to use ‘Hello World‘ as my rather witty title, but then I noticed that here at WordPress they use it as the default title for your first post. Bastards.

Like everyone else, I’m still recovering from the shock of Saturday’s defeat against Portugal.

Unlike everyone else, I’m planning for my next trip to South American. I’m going to Colombia with Melissa [name changed to protect the innocent, I don’t make THAT mistake twice] for two weeks at the beginning of August. Medellin, Barranquilla, Cartagena and San Andres (Colombian island in the Carribbean sea, east of Panama). I can almost guarantee you that there’ll be dramas and at least a little bit of mayhem so stay tuned.

I’ve been stuggling with what tone I should adopt with this blog. My first thought was to go with the tone of a dog whistle, but then it occured to me that dog whistles can’t be heard by human ears, so quickly discarded that foolish notion. Sceptical that I can make a good decision this early on, I think I’ll take it as it comes (or goes, which should it be?).

One thing I am sure of, is that I won’t be recording any of the shennanigans I did during my previous blog, mostly because I don’t get up to any shennanigans, despite my best efforts. Fortunately, I now live in a part of London full of immigrants from Brazil and Eastern Europe, so it would be foolish to rule anything out wouldn’t it?

Noel Edmonds is a current obsession of mine. Here he is imitating a spaz. BTW, spaz is my favourite word. If you have a good think about it I think you’ll find it’s your favourite word too.
