I hope you’ll all excuse my absence – I’ve had a Sonni over visiting from Germany.
Proper update later tonight,
in the mean time:
Name a CD you own that no one else on your friends list does:
Soul Ascendant’s debut: Between Two Worlds. They’re a bunch of my mates who happen to be in a soul band and have released one album just as they’re about to split up.
Of course it’s highly unlikely that any of you own a copy of the Best Mr Men Album in the World … Ever.
Or of the Clangers Opera CD
Name a book you own that no one else on your friends list does:
Bit trickier, this one. I could go for university text books.
But I won’t.
So I’m taking a bit of a gamble here and saying Bruce Dickinson’s: The Adventures of Lord Iffy Boatrace.
Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that no one else on your friends list does:
I’m counting my very limited DVD collection only, since my videos are all in boxes down south.
If we can count films of live comedy shows then I’ve got a copy of the League of Gentlemen playing Drury Lane Theatre.
If not then the least mainstream film I have in my collection is probably Breaker Morant starring Edward Woodward. I bought it on ebay largely because Cassidy rambles on about in the final Preacher collection and I thought it sounded interesting.
Name a place that you have visited that no one else on your friends list has:
One of you makes this one very, very difficult, but I wouldn’t have thought any of you had actually been to Byker Grove. It was a flying visit on a free bus tour of the area and we only stopped long enough for the guide to say “That’s it there!” before the bus moved off.
I just need to do a little shopping tomorrow and I can complete the prize parcels for the marvellous winners.
(I apologise for my slowness.)
For personal reasons Sonni and I are taking a step back from our relationship to just being good friends.
Go and read this now!
It’s this week’s column for CIO.com. And I happen to think it’s the best one I’ve done yet.
I’m particularly proud of the story part – just over an hour from seeing a similar sign by the front door of a house I was going past to completion.
The first part of the column is good news too.
(Please feel free to praise/criticise at will.)
But first, some historic photographs:
The final filter of fantasticity as it works its magic:
The box, home to my filters for the past however long it’s been, looking empty and folorn:
And now for the announcement you’ve all been waiting for.
as if I’d give up such vital info. without upping the tension a little bit more…
that is all.
…finding it impossible to connect to the new ‘Box today?
