Today was a day of extremes. Lets take a look at them…
From Live-In Girlfriend to Medium Distance Relationship
LoneCat went home. Boo. I see her again in a couple of weeks for the con. Yay.
From humid and hot to absolutly bloody soaking and cool
Today was marked by flooding across much of the UK. At half past three we (Me & LoneCat)
left so she could catch her 16:15 bus. Which she did. At quarter to four I went into HMV
and, in something of a suprise move, bought the album I was planning to
buy (Badly Drawn Boy – About A Boy Soundtrack). As I exited the shopping
arcade, there was a roll of thunder (And we are talking full, 3D, omnious
rolls here, in a way that would make Creative Labs drool…), and I
thought “Yay, we could do with a shower”. I got to Mill Road (Long road.
This was the start of Mill Road, the road our house is on is just after
house number 256 or something) and it started to rain. Because it was
humid when I left, I was wearing a short-sleved shirt, a jumper (just
in case) as well as trousers etc, and this light drizzle wasn’t really
a problem. “Isn’t it?” said the weather, and pushed up the dampness.
By the time I got home, I looked like I had been swimming. I had. I was
unable to see more than a foot in front of my nose, due to glasses being
covered in rain, and I was generally doing a very good Drowned Rat impression.
But, for the first time in days, I wasn’t overheating.
Internet Explorer Six to Netscape 2
My current browser of choice, and the thing I am composing this entry in,
is Netscape 2. It supports more sites than 4 does, including most of the ones
I visit, and neatly ignores most of the more nasty design elements
around. It’s nice. It works. It’s only 2mb.
Oh, and I’m back in the “If you people are enjoying the posts I spent
hours working on, why the fuck does nobody ever reply to, or even *mention*, them”
point of the “Where has all the feedback gone?” cycle. Expect dramatic storming out of newsgroups soon.
