New and different

Friday, September 29th, 2006

I’ve spent a few happy minutes watching Keyvan transfer my blog from blogger to my very own website. I’d like to lay claim to the move but really can’t, especially as he bravely struggled on despite a horrible cold and put me and my idle ways to shame. I am no closer to becoming a […]

Sudden surge of hope

Tuesday, September 26th, 2006

Today on the cycle ride to work I saw a lollipop lady weeding a council flower bed and felt a sudden surge of hope for and optimism in the human race. Later after the necessary daily dose of Daria, internet and tinned food I went to see Children of Men with Will, Ella and young […]

Bright lights and brighter living

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

The Indian summer continues… interspersed with rain only when washing is hung out to dry! I’ve have spent a healthy weekend cycling and playing badminton with only the odd glass of wine to wash it down with it. I figure if it’s organic wine then it must be kind of healthy too! Keyvan headed back […]

‘Over focused on human rights’

Saturday, September 16th, 2006

Having a relaxing weekend in London. Have stayed in bed all day reading The Philosophy Gym by Stephen Law. It’s well worth reading if you’re interested in philosophy made easy. Another busy week behind me! I went to the Norwich Stop the War public meeting on Thursday evening. There was quite a good turn out […]

Polluting parts of the environment other cars can’t reach

Sunday, September 10th, 2006

Local subvertising rather well done. I’ve been so busy working that there has been no time for blogging. (I hear you all sighing with disappointment) But after seeing the local billboards I felt inspired to share Norwich political art with you. The weekend has been sunny and rather nice. Went to a graffiti jam yesterday […]

Many happy hours

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

I’ve now spent many happy days at work. The summer holiday is fading into the background. I enjoyed it but am looking forward to working now. A change is as good as a rest allegedly! On the naughtier side I’ve been enjoying my bottle of Chianti carefully brought back from Tuscany… and eating at the […]

Questioning the interview

Saturday, September 2nd, 2006

Picked up the beautiful new bike that is now mine. It was not as joyful riding it around as I thought it might be but I think I just have to get used to it and then it will bring me oodles of joy. Done lots of hanging out with various people today and as […]

Shiny bikes and horrible horror

Saturday, September 2nd, 2006

One of the best things about today was that I brought a shiny new bike. I’m going to pick it up and spend all day riding around on it tomorrow. One of the worst was that I went to watch Severance at the cinema – horrible film. I really hate horror films even ones purporting […]

Bad films and plans

Friday, September 1st, 2006

A deliciously lazy day spent watching bad films such as The Wedding Singer, Before Sunrise and The Wonder Days – not all bad but just not very good. Discussed feminism with Susie until late – now feel I should read some Germaine Greer. Reading up on Western philopsophy and reading Jonathan Swift’s poetry before bed. […]
