My iPod

Monday, December 31st, 2007

I felt like my previous post was a bit lame on the iPod, as it did sound a bit like I was just showing off for the hell of it. I wasn’t, but let’s have a little more substance this time: When you dock it to your PC, the graphic for it in iTunes comes […]

Three things

Saturday, December 29th, 2007

i. I got a new iPod for Christmas. A silver 80Gb classic. This is now my fifth iPod following a 20Gb second generation, a 20Gb third generation, a 30Gb iPod Photo, and 5th Gen 60Gb iPod Video. I wonder what will be next? ii. The USA sells a variation of Cadbury’s Creme Eggs: Ornament Creme […]

My Christmas Dinner

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

“So what do American eat for Christmas dinner then?” I got asked by a few home-folk yesterday. Well .. this! But where would be the fun in just telling you what some of the traditional American Christmas foods are, when it would be far more fun you to scrutinised these miniature JPG’s and have you […]

Just another day

Tuesday, December 25th, 2007

I think I was either twelve or thirteen years old when somehow I realised that I wasn’t a young kid anymore, and the Christmas magic was wearing off a bit. I’d campaigned for weeks to get that Mecanno set that I’d wanted (making the step up from Lego – trying to go all mature), but […]

A quick look back to two years ago. Nothing has changed in two years. I’ve been going through my Christmas playlist this morning, and they’re still my five favourite Christmas choons of all time. ‘Fairytale’ of course is back in the charts again this Christmas (for the fifth time), and is regularly chosen as people’s […]

Read all about it

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

I’ve just seen a bizarre thing on TV, bizarre in it’s timing and bizarre in its effect. The Christmas special of ‘Extras‘ isn’t due to be shown in the UK until Thursday of next week (9pm on BB Cone), but it was shown here on HBO last week, and I just caught a repeat of […]


Thursday, December 20th, 2007

I know I often say I’m not going to do it again, but then of course I always do, and so yes … it’s that time of the year again : Review of the Year is here. Twelve audio tracks for you to download or play online (there is no CD) which covers the 12 […]

Hands up if you’d like a ‘Review of the year 2007’ then? [Last year]

Is it Christmas yet?

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

Thanks to Ian for the prompt. No seriously – is it? It was 81F / 27C in Charleston today, and with just thirteen day to Christmas it’s apparently stupidly hot here even for this time of year. I was sweating profusely walking just the ten minutes from the local Starbucks to work this afternoon. Also, […]

Route 66-ish

I want to know …

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

… about Christmas Is it too early to be ‘doing’ Christmas yet, do you think? It’s still November, but Christmas is less than a month away. Leigh has already been suckered into buying a Christmas tree, and it made me go and make my ‘Xmas 2007’ playlist in ye olde iChoons. But is it too […]

Do not pass go

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

So let’s see. This year, I have: Rescued a loggerhead turtle from the Atlantic Ocean, fired a gun for the first time in my life, flown above Charleston Harbour checking out inbound tall ships, seen an F/A-18 hornet being loaded onto an aircraft carrier, met a 13 year old kid can do the Rubik’s cube […]
