I haven’t been exploring my thoughts recently. Just having them and then letting them pass me over. I need to change that.

I will start and end with this, I hope you are having a great Christmas with your families and friends! I want to just ask that while you are celebrating today, with good food (thanks Dad!), wine, presents, games, talking, singing or whatever else takes your fancy, you just spare a minute or more to think about the 35,000 children who will die today of starvation, of the 8,000 people in Africa...
I’m back at my parents house now, and one nice thing that I forgot about it, is that it doesn’t have any phone signal for O2, which means I’m pretty much without a phone for the next few days. Fantastic! So, if you want to get hold of me, email or msn will be the easiest! Or if you really wanna hear my voice, email me and I can give you our landline number!! Hah.
Very interesting video about Chernobyl’s Sarcophagus! Something that i have always been interested in! (via Google Video)

I just saw this on someone’s myspace page and I like it:Why do we think that if we trust God too much, he will fail us? Why indeed.
I’m very much awake at 1am, and my head is full of things I want to say, people I want to talk to, people I want to say one sentence to, things I want to do, books I want to read, etc. This will be an outpouring of a few of the things that are in my head.. I want to become a better writer. A more poetic writer. One of the things I really struggle with with my writing is thinking “what...
All around you, people will be tiptoeing through life, just to arrive at death...
Lego is an abbreviation of the Danish phrase “leg godt”, which means “play well”.
I’ve gone to write so many posts, and then just canceled them while writing them.. I guess its a form of self moderation.
I was reading through Ecclesiastes, and thought.. This is really depressing.. Chapter 4, 1 - 3. “Again I saw all the people who were mistreated here on earth. I saw their tears, and that they had no one to comfort the. Cruel people had all the power, and there was no one to comfort those they hurt. I decided that the dead are better off than the living. But those who have never been born are...
I’m bored. There are things I need to do, things I need to buy for Christmas. But I can hardly move, and it sucks a lot! Also, nobody’s online.. Everyone’s out doing Christmassy things.. Bah humbug! I hate buying into the commercialism of the season.. I think I’m going to go and read.
I sprained my ankle last night doing the can-can with a load of youth.. I landed awkwardly one my ankle, and put all of my weight onto it, and then the guy next to me put all of his weight onto it also as I stumbled.. I have spent 3 hours in a&e, just to be told that I should be resting it, keeping it elivated, and have cold stuff on it.. All of which I was doing before.. At least I know it...
YOUR RESPONDING TO A DEAD MAN!! STOP IT!!– Leon at work, to Steve, when he was responding to John Lenon’s song, So This Is Christmas.

I made over me and some of my friends! →
1 more thing.. My Holga arrived today! (well, yesterday, but I wasn’t in the office)
Also, I’m bored of ASP. The problems that I had with that script, weren’t syntax problems but logic problems. I want to use PHP more, and maybe some Ruby on Rails. I think my christmas project will be a cms using PHP and some Ajax.
I’m feeling a bit deflated. Yesterday, one of the other programmers at work had to re-write a script that I spend all day monday creating. He said that it wasn’t bad, I had just missed a couple of things that needed to be in there, and it could have been written better. So, when I got in thismorning, I asked him to explain what he had changed. I wanted to learn what I could do better.....
Note to self: Make something awsum this christmas to show as portfolio item for internship application.
I had another heart-to-heart with my housemate pete tonight. He’s a truly awsum guy.
is laughing at his boss who’s spent the last 20 minutes trying to install a monitor.. I guess I shouldn’t laugh.. It has two cables after all… Can be easy to get mixed up..
At the moment, I’m thinking that I’m going to do it. But I’m waiting until the end of December.
having an afternoon off is wonderful. I have been reading this book: and am listening to this music and I have ordered this camera . Amazing.
