Wot no life? - Grin with cat attached
|Wot no life?||Feb. 8th, 2004 09:53 am|
Just scanned through the last 40 posts I made. About a third are propogation of news stories, as many again are geek notes and queries, and the rest are a combination of SPF, bad puns, memes and general politicking. (Apparently it's been a poor week for pretentious philosophising)|
And yet over 100 people keep this journal on their friends list?
Firstly, to redress the balance, the social aspect of this week:
Tuesday: PL for redcountess' birthday drinks - much sociable chatting.
Wednesday: was supposed to go to the gym. Didn't. MUST go this week.
Thursday: London.pm meet. Geekery; gods I needed the fix. No one in my role should get this tech deprived. Also, for some reason, large numbers of inebriated perlsters singing the Top Gun theme, repeatedly and with homoerotic overtones, or some such. Also much appreciation of Guns, Germs, and Steel, which I've just finished - it answers the Kilroy Question in more depth that he'll have seen in his life.
Friday: PL again. Good night, great people (even if I get wibbly around certain highly attractive females with lethal eyebrows); ended with maneatingtigger trying (quite deservedly I feel) to beat me to death for telling her "And remember, you've got to go owwwwwwwwwwwwwwww".
Saturday: British Museum with duranorak. Fantastic history, culminating in mummied eel. Couldn't find any statues of sekhmet that looked remotely like me, although I saw a number that didn't (got the Cat's attention though).
Then Sushi, with No Eel, and remarkable financial restraint.
Thence the Dev; to catch up with valkyriekaren and olethros and also to meet cavalorn. Genuinely strange conversations and much giggling.
Finally home to versuvio pizza and a concerted effort to wash a week's worth of cigarette STENCH out of my hair and skin. ICK.
And discussion with Dave on a new web/technical project which might be genuinely interesting and useful; more on this later.
