Ridiculous. Why is Emmy Rossum advertising coffee? And such a horrendous advert. Embarassing.
Things that really didn’t need to be written down: part one.
I miss my phone, it’s away getting fixed and I don’t have a replacement for it yet. Here’s a photo I took of loads of sausages in Croatia. It’s all sausage in the supermarkets. Crazy.
I wouldn’t wear this myself, but it gave me a chuckle.
This may be related to the fact that I thought the Harry Potter books were massively overrated, but I find this very sad.
I love it!
I’m having a confusing Monday. I tried to take a picture of my phone using my phone and it took me a good 30 seconds to process the problem. I’ve drawn it instead. All to show that my phone (Sony Ericsson C902) is broken, and I’m sending it back to o2 today.
A different (and prettier) perspective of life in Glasgow.
I cemented my reputation as an idiot on Saturday. Talking to a woman from Belgium about the differences in traditional Christmas food, I said “We tend to have brussels sprouts at Christmas. Do you have them in Belgium?”
I’m looking for recommendations for my summer holiday next year.
Two people, ten days (maybe 14 if there’s enough to do). Any time between July-October. Sunny preferably, but something different could be interesting.
No real budget, but don’t fancy paying through the nose. I’d like to have a social life on the run-up, no throwing away my entire wage every month on the installments!
I’m so completely undecided on every part of the thing, including going on holiday in the first place! Any recommendations or warnings welcome.

Newspapers will always write negative things about clamping companies but imagine it was your bay at home and somebody parked in it. What would you do?
Great. Not only do they give us the oldest trains still running, cancel at the drop of a hat and generally run late every morning, they’re now putting the prices up by 6%. Thanks. Pirates.
I came across this site, free-the-web.com, today. It’s not a concept that’s new to me, I hear it all the time from web designers. They hate Internet Explorer with such venom.
Some sites have ‘get firefox’ links, or they have a ‘this site is not supported by IE’ splash pages, redirects to browse happy or similar. There isn’t much love out there for the IE6 browser.
Is it wrong that I think it’s all a bit unnecessary?
I know the browser doesn’t support standard CSS and it’s generally a bit of a mess, but these tantrums from web developers worldwide is getting a bit gimmicky. I bet some don’t even know why they don’t like the browser, just that they’re meant to and sound good doing it.
A good web developer/designer will (after many sleepless nights and bloody typing fingers) find a way to create a working, supportable site for IE6.
It’s not professional to stick your fingers in your ears and shout ‘la-la-la-la-la’. It’s a mistake to refuse to acknowledge the 20% using internet explorer (and the relative new internet users who will continue to as long as it’s pre-installed with Windows).
‘Boycotting’ IE6 will not stop people from using the browser, it will simply dissuade a visitor from returning.
I love the new xbox interface. My avatar is quite a decent representation of my skin colour and glasses at least! On xbox? Add me as a friend and laugh as you realise how crap I am.
My in-depth notes from this afternoon’s meeting. You can see I was enthralled.
