Still Friday, still firing

Nearly forgot, there's more to the week, and I have been kind enough to detail it all on an overblown drawling video for your visual comfort.

Thursday_raveOur hero raves at length about the new startup 12seconds.tv, an sings the praises of Seesmic.



the weekly Seesmic occurrence

Staying calm in the face of incredible odds, remaining upright when all around were falling on their arse, maintaining the rage, and whining rather a lot about everything, our hero, the designated straight person, get's to the end of the week without having to change his underwear.


sunburn and 12 secondsand so it came to pass that the overcast day had indeed sunburned his face



Spoken

A blog post in which our hero had unreasonably high expectations of Blogger being able to handle a sound file.

It failed.

...later that day

Obviously it is going to be one of those days where I bugger about until it's too late to fly in my gliding sim, and blame everyone else for it.

You know the type of day.

It happened like this

Video / webcam dramas prevent me from assaulting your senses at present, but will be corrected.

I want to be a postman

I think. Time for a change of occupation? Seems to feel like it. The well oiled habit of never doing anything for more than a decade seems to be booting in again.

The obsession with mail again.



a spot of rough weather...

..is good for the soul, so I am told. I think not. I refuse to go outside. I am content. I am warm.
Critical issues will be dealt with by phone.

Favorite lady Doctor visited. Most functions still available bar blood pressure which requires something new to halt the gallop.
