10:28 am - Ermmm...
Clearly my friends page people have all sorts of shit going that I've missed.

So rather than trying to catch up on the intricacies individually, I'm going to send a general good thoughts sort of thing out. Yus.

5:43 pm - Nobody loves me
Abject speed-dating FAILURE!!

Except not really. I ticked two people. Neither of them ticked me. Three people who I didn't tick did tick me, which is flattering. But, much like Steve, who I went with, it just confirms that I fancy people who don't fancy me; and people who I don't fancy, do fancy me.

That was too many 'fancies' in a row. I'm not 13, after all.

It was fun, nonetheless, and got me out the house.

9:15 pm - I'm not dead
Everything has changed! Different layouts are ooky.

I'm responding to nudges that I should return, so hello. I may try and make more effort here. God knows my profile needs updating.

Sadly my life is absorbed with Pokémon at the moment so I can't promise much in the way of presence.

I'm going speed dating this weekend. That will surely be good for a post or two.

9:12 pm - I like this
This meme is going around. Go here:

It is not worth an intelligent man's time to be in the majority. By definition, there are already enough people to do that.
G. H. Hardy (1877 - 1947)

It is only the ignorant who despise education.
Publilius Syrus (~100 BC), Maxims

Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where your backbone ought to be.
Clementine Paddleford

I am an unpopular electric eel in a pool of catfish.
Edith Sitwell (1887 - 1964)

Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.
William James (1842 - 1910)

6:27 pm - I have a new job!
Probably not the most exciting in the world, and hardly a 'career' but there will be responsibility, more money, proper holiday and everything. Plus there'll be someone working to me.
I'll have an underling!

12:39 am - Addition to list of Things I Like...
Being taken to dinner by contractors and drinking my share of £400 worth of wine.

I should update.

Right. Things I must do:

-Improve my French to a standard where I can hold a conversation
-Get a handle on Japanese
-Train in reiki so that I can make use of my alleged gift
-Start writing one of my ideas into actual book form

Perhaps having these written down, glaring at me, will motivate me.

Sick and tired of waiting to hear about the new job. Potential new job, I should say.

It's too hot.

I made hoi-sin sauce though. So that's something.

There WAS cold pizza!
The day got so much better.

9:30 am - Well
It's been a while hasn't it?

I may have a new job but it's probably shit and one I don't want, so we shall see.

Spent some time at Pride yesterday, which was just depressing. Oh, The Gays. Saw various people I knew including Justin, who was the American boy I had a crush on aaaaaaaaaaages ago, and he has gone to seed really badly, so that was nice.

I expected to have cold pizza for breakfast this morning but I got up and it was all gone, so that was depressing too.

I was supposed to have a quick drink after work. This became three pints, a Jack Daniels, a Pimms and a gin and tonic. Oops.

In other news, Scott and I are going to write a musical about bees, including the adaptations 'If I Had A Hive-Mind' (from Fiddler on the Roof) and 'Don't Cry For Me Hive of Workers' from Evita. It will be AWESOME.

5:42 pm - A bad sign, I guess...
Is it a bad sign when a 45-minute meeting with people outside of my department makes me feel more valued and productive at work than I have in the last several months?

5:38 pm - Diminishing plague
I haven't thrown up since about 9 am! Sadly, nor have I got dressed or moved from the sofa, but you can't have everything.

Thanks for the get-well wishes. Good thing I didn't come to dinner, eh Steve?

10:43 am - Yay, plague!
I have gastric flu, I think. Been vomming like clockwork since 9.30 last night even though there was nothing there to vom.
