Young Love

Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

If I’d have been in England last night … Got on the train after work. Went to White Hart Lane. Watched Tottenham lose 3-1 at home to Everton. Me and and approximately 36,000 other people are in the stadium. Had a jumbo hot dog and a pint of Heineken at half time. Loitered about afterwards […]

It’s your right to be left-handed

Monday, August 13th, 2007

Today is officially left-handers day 2007. Didn’t know that, did you? A few weeks ago (I can’t find it now), Leigh forwarded me an article that said if you were left handed, you had a higher chance of being gay. I sent her one back (altered) saying that if you were left handed, you were […]

Don’t put your hoof in it

Saturday, August 11th, 2007

And now, for another in our series entitled: “Same language – but might as well be a different world” “So things really bad back home then at the moment, eh?” is the gist of opening conversation gambits that I’ve been getting from people for the past couple of weeks. “First those floods, now hoof everywhere” […]

Just checking

Friday, August 10th, 2007

You gotta love how Americans cling on to their ‘old ways’, but doing it with a modern slant. Like the refusal to ‘let go’ of one dollar bills (and move to coins), but how all the vending machines take one dollar bills. (Back in the UK when we had pound notes, I remember vending machines […]

Retro Geek

Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows ME, 98, 95, and of course Windows 3.1 – but do you remember what was before then? I bet you don’t, or maybe you can guess – but staggeringly enough there were indeed previous versions called ‘Windows 1.0’ and ‘Windows 2.0’. Oddly, in the recent smug PC vs […]

Current Geek

So let’s see. 4000 tracks in iTunes, and all of them have a genre, a 1-5 star rating, a year, and obviously all the artist/album data filled in correctly. But that’s not enough … no … oh no! Because if you want to be completely obsessive, then every good iPod/iTunes users knows that you must […]

Hot in the city

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

Incidentally, it hit 110F in Charleston today. Ok, so the ‘real’ temperature was only 97F, but by the time you include the relative humidity you get added on what’s known as the heat index, and you get the temperature of what it feels like – which was 110F, or 43C. Sweat patches appeared on the […]

Face/Book

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

Have I missed something here? I always figured it was meant to work something like this: • 12 – 16 year olds. You have a MySpace page • 17 – 21 year olds. You’re at college/university and so you have a Facebook page • 21 – 25 year olds. You’re at your first job and […]

F7

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

So I can’t spell. Fact. When I upgraded my blog the other weak, I went through every single post that I had ever made since switched to WordPress in June 2005 (all 439 of them) in order to check for broken/missing images – and as I went along, I realised that I had the power […]

Roll with it

Friday, August 3rd, 2007

Pay attention people! There is a very important issue that needs to be resolved here. When replacing the bog-roll (toilet paper) at home in your bathroom, are you someone who hangs it on the outside – away from the wall- or are you someone that prefers to hang it so that it’s almost touching the […]

C.I.D

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

… is the Criminal Investigation Department in the UK – Americans, think of the CIA only with less donuts and 9mm weapons. “See ID” however was what was scrawled on the back of this credit card the other day (Not Leighs, but someone I know called Sarah) as we queued up to pay for coffee. […]
