notetoself: get fit!

okay so I’ve been off work on and off for two weeks and am just now feeling 100% so I’ve eaten a proper breakfast and am about to go out and have a run. It’s the first time I’ve felt like exercising all year (okay so I know it’s only 16 days in to the new one but still).

I’ve been going stir crazy too. All this being cooped up in the flat aint good for me.

Roll on the new week. Woo Hoo!


So last night at around 10:30 there was a commotion outside. Not sure what was happening but some people shouting. Then later lots more commotion so my interest was piqued and I took a peak outside. Outside there was a police car in the middle of the road and a police man taping off the gardens below the flat. Some more commotion later and yet more police and more tape and more cars and vans.
Not sure what was going on at all but it continued on way after I should have been asleep but with all that noise that proved impossible. Unlike me actually as I normally fall asleep instantly my head hits the pillow.
So anyway needless to say when the alarm went of at 7:00 this morning I was still wanting for sleep and not a happy bunny.
I looked out the window and nothing of the night before was noticeable. no police tape, no police, no cars and no vans.

make love not spam

So Lycos decided it would be a good idea to fight back against spam. Something every person using movabletype will know about. I’d love to hit the comment spammers where it hurts.
Sadly the makelovenotspam site has now been hit by a denial of service attack.
What goes around comes around!
Oh the site is down but if you really want the screensaver and are using a Mac (and let’s face it why wouldn’t you be?) try this link instead.

note to self: nothing is simple

So I got an email reminder my oyster card was due to run out. I went online and ordered a new yearly one.
It didn’t charge.
I checked online and realised it was my old one that stopped working in the summer…
so now I have to manually do it for this week at the station and then order it again online for the new one.
meanwhile my refund will now automatically happen after 10 days.


Did I mention I’d started to play with which looks set to be the new toy of the year. It’s loads of fun and as you can tag all of your photo’s you can link them up with other people in groups and all in all is easy to use. I’ve been meaning to get a new gallery installed but haven’t had the time so tis looks like it might be the way forward.
