I started having these “flashes”

Hmmm…where to begin with all this? Maybe if you follow me on Twitter you’ve seen a number of odd tweets about me passing out and having really large head aches.



Well, recently I passed out from a large amount of them. However, they come with some flashes of images, some that I recognise, some that I don’t and they overall feel more like a memory.


Have gone to the doctor’s and scheduled an appointment with a nuerologist (brain people) for later on in the month to see what’s actually wrong with me. Most people think it’s some form of epilepsy, but I’ll let you know what they say. Sorry this one is a bit of a downer.

Diving in to the fray of it all

Aren’t I witty? Anyways, I’m quite a fan of the band The Fray and will be seeing them on the 1st May in Birmingham. If you read my blog, follow me on Twitter, or even know me in the real world, as the latter service is growing in popularity, then let know and we can meet up or something. Use the hashtag of #fraytweetup for organising these things on Twitter and I’ll see you there.

I'm sure by now, you've heard that Yahoo! is closing their free amateur website builder GeoCities later this year.

After I read about it, I found my old website information and logged in to see when I first created what I think was my first website.
I don't know if you can see the dates on there, but it says September 2001 as some updates. As much as I'd like to think that I don't really care what happens to this website, considering I designed it when I was 11 or 12, I actually do.

So, I'm still going to back this version up somewhere, and then try and make a version of it that's web 2.0 and all the extra stuff I now know and am able to do with HTML and such. I'd like to think that I'll still be able to look back on the original many years from now and laugh.

I'll show my kids, and they'll wonder how their dad managed to make something so...stupid, and simple when they knock out great sites in a few minutes.

I'll miss GeoCities, I really will, but I guess times have moved on.

Here's a link to my site by the way, so you can all see how my skillz have evolved. Anyone else got theirs to share?.

So, recently I've started to use a lot more seeing as I have the app on my iPhone and the scrobbler for my laptop/iPod. It basically gives you a nice insight in to what bands I like and what I've recently been listening to and will even compare your tastes if you visit my profile.

I especially like that now scrobbles songs from my iPod when I connect it, so that I can listen to it on the go and then update my listens later.

This is the first of a few "social networking" posts, with more direct links and some commentary to my social networking profiles.

If I don't interest you, there's always Bill Bailey.

Drunken Poetry

This week, one of my Twitter followers (@poetrysue) wrote about me on her blog so go and check it out for the full scoop as to why.

I'm going to try and put out the tweets whenever I'm a bit bored, and you can post the pictures on your blogs and stuff, so long as you send me a tweet or e-mail to let me know.

And yes, I do have that much of an ego, that I post about this stuff whenever it crops up, so if you write (good) stuff about somewhere, please also let me know.
