happy for you... Is there sea in the picture? If so I am jealous.


There is sea out there, and one or two yachts in the bay. When the sun shines, this is a very nice part of the world, when it rains and when the wind blows (which is what it usually does), this place is brutal!

404 is happy that there are some people online.... she didn't think there would be any considering it is a Saturday.

Yes, facebook doesn't help here, especially when you spend time contriving your current status statement:

"Sylvester is enjoying the sunset through his office window."

I rest my case.

If I see just one more pair of ugg boots.... :-s

I had to google ugg boots to know what they were. But yes, I see quite a few of them around. When worn with a short skirt the look is rather pleasing on the eye, well from a male perspective!


That really depends on the wearer - I've seen some shockers!


This is very true, some people really shouldn't go there, but it does make you appreciate the others all the more!

I vaguely remember Khaawaar from last year, so only having 4 posts (to date) is a bit weird unless it's a new account and there is some slight variation on his/her username from the previous one. Mind you, DanB did exist for awhile as HangSeng and fooled a lot us (myself included). So DanB, we know you are reading this, email me if you're around!

Hmmm, open= upon

Seems I've also started typing sound-alike words too. I really am losing it.

I thought this had stopped, but it's back again. I was walking down the stairs earlier talking to myself about what work I'm going to be doing this afternoon, and then I realised what was happening.

This used to happen a lot when I lived on my own, but since sharing with others it seems to have stopped. Not anymore. I can only assume that I haven't been getting out much lately. Does anyone else talk to themselves, or is it just me showing the first signs of (PhD) madness?

I'm working up on campus today and our offices are opposite the accommodation office. As today is start of fresher's week it's been absolute chaos out there all day - huge traffic jams right across town, cars piled up to the roof with stuff - creaking right down on their suspensions, very young looking freshers and very protective-looking parents.

There's something vaguely amusing about watching this whole charade, especially in the knowledge that once mum and dad have hit the road for home, their little darlings will be straight down town to get leathered with their new flatmates.

Still, my memories of my freshers' week are very hazy, so it must have been a good week. I'm told old now and can't handle my beer, so I'll look on in amusement as the current band of freshers experience the freshers' week rite of passage.

How's it looking where you are?

what have you done with Kitt? Sold it I guess...

No we fell out, badly. He was getting too cocky and in danger of being a bigger star than me. So we went our separate ways and I bought a Vauxhall Nova instead.

Quite fitting. Does the black and white one have a red nose and chase the little yellow one around?

I'll be Sylvester Platy then, if you don't mind.

Didn't David Hasselhof used to pop up in the tank from time to time?

Well, after another disappointing day (only half a day's work today), I'm shortly about to give up for he night.

I'm now a full day behind for this week. If I'm to make up this time, do i sacrifice one day over the weekend (not good for getting rest and may leave me jaded next week) or do I do 2 x 1.5 days? Hmmm. Just had a self heart-to-heart in my diary about why my procrastination habit is getting well-entrenched and what I can seriously do about it to establish a structured, effective work regime. I know what I must do, I just don't want to have to do it! :-s
