Quite against all expectations I have a date. Of sorts. I won't bore you with the details but some poor fool is determined to spend a day with me whereby I must dazzle him with my wit and originality, not to mention my imagination and charm. I haven't done this since I was a teenager and, as we all know, things were so much simpler then. Cinema, pizza hit - job's a good 'un. Now things seem far more complicated. Do I have to be my perfect self for 24 hours? I don't know who I am from one minute to the next at the best of times - now I have to create an itinerary that encapsulates my essence in a single day? And is that even a good idea?

Anyway, probably because of my job and possibly because of my borderline mental health issues I can not resist the need to over plan this. Obviously spontaneity is far sexier than anything I can muster on a spreadsheet but I'm pretty sure the soon-to-be-disappointed boy in question doesn't read this so I can fake that, right? Right?

Left Hand Love

Want! Want!

Super Mario Land Etched Eee.

Is there actually anything cooler?

What on EARTH are you doing?! Go and fix Vista!

Baring in mind I've been thinking about switching my allegiance to Mac for a while now I think this counts as not only the final nail in the coffin, but also the 6ft of earth being shoveled onto the top.

I May Have Been Some Time

Really, when you write more posts apologising for not posting enough than actual posts it's time to have a word with yourself.

That said, my New Years resolution was to do as many new things as possible in 2009 (not flog this old horse, but still...)maybe some of you are interested. Ha. The following are all more or less in progress (funds pending):

  • Go to a European festival (Melt in Germany in July, if you're interested)
  • Go to the Edinburgh Festival
  • Go to ATP
  • Skydive for charity
  • Take a photography class
  • Enter the Great North Swim
  • Volunteer
  • Learn to Kayak
Any more suggestions?
