Sorry blog

I wish I had the time and inclination to write on this blog more… I think I need a new incentive… maybe a new blog…

Using my name in vain

Writing about web page http://www.myspace.com/biffyclyro

Biffy Clyro, Folding Stars

Take a long hard look at yourself
How did you end up here
The blood drips like red inverted balloons
Tomorrow is a promise to no-one

If you want, follow me and I’ll lead you inside
You don’t have to run and hide

Eleanor, Eleanor
I would do anything for another minute with you because
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier

In a bedroom with no windows or doors
All the happy people are crying
You can’t hold a gaze for a second or two
It always ends in total darkness

If you want, follow me and I’ll lead you inside
You don’t have to run and hide

Eleanor, Eleanor
I would do anything for another minute with you because
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier
You will be folding stars
You can’t even understand
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier

It ends in a place with no love only hate
And a mirror reflecting the truth
In your eyes, in your face you can’t wash it away
From your cold, cold heart

Eleanor, Eleanor
I would do anything for another minute with you because
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier
You will be folding stars
You can’t even understand
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier

I hope that you’re folding stars

Brief reflections on Bali

First day back in the office after a fab holiday in Indonesia. We sent most time in Bali, but we did go to another couple of islands out there too – Gili Trawangan and Lombok.

We flew from LHR to Doha, got a connecting flight to Jakarta (via Singapore) and then flew Jakarta to Bali (Denpasar airport). The journey took about 30 something hours but was well worth it.

We stayed a couple of nights in Kuta before flying to Lombok where we got a boat to Gili T. We stayed in Gili T for a few nights and then got a boat back to Lombok where we took a trip to some waterfalls. Stayed in Lombok for one night before flying back to Bali and heading to Ubud which is in-coast and is the central cultural area with lots of art, wood carving, temples etc. We stayed two nights there and then went back to Kuta for about 4/5 nights. We then flew to Jakarta where we stayed overnight and then flew back to LHR the following day (the journey home seemed much longer than the journey there!)

Was a fab holiday and we did so much stuff that it feels like it was longer than a fortnight! We did surfing, snorkelling, kayaking, visited waterfalls, rode an elephant, went to the monkey forest and lots of other stuff! Will try and write a few more details soon…

Horoscopes

Do you believe your horoscopes or are they just a vague prediction that people attach meaning to so they can explain the things that are going on around them?

I have a daily horoscope on my iGoogle page and so often it seems accurate… is there really some truth in it or is it just a coincidence?

Also, your star sign – do you really have the traits of your zodiac sign? I am a Leo and I think people who know me wouldn’t be surprised to find that out.

YouTube error

Just tried to access YouTube and received an error message with the following useful information…

A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.

I can just imagine the little web monkeys… Made me smile…

Ugly Brummie Girls

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/west_midlands/6700777.stm

Brummie girls ‘not pretty enough’

This featured on the BBC website earlier this week…

Beauty contest officials chose a model from Stoke-on-Trent to represent Birmingham because they could not find anyone pretty enough from the city.

That’s just wrong… I know lots of pretty brummies…

Why do people always pick on the Brummies??

I like to… what?

Writing about web page /naomihowell/entry/i_like_a/

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

Google Game: Go to Google and type in quotation marks your name and then “likes to” (ex. “Steve likes to”). Type in the first ten things that come up and repost in your own note.

Hilarious…

  • Ellie likes to see the deer and says that in the park it’s possible to feel like you are really in the countryside
  • Ellie likes to go everywhere with her owner
  • Ellie likes to talk…and be held
  • Ellie likes to describe people in both pictures and words
  • Ellie likes to run and play typically for a puppy and is housebroke and up to date with her vaccines
  • Ellie likes to cover mama in puzzle pieces!
  • Ellie likes to eat, sleep, go for walks and snuggle
  • Ellie likes to dance with boys
  • Ellie likes to make her smellies from nature’s goodies…
  • Ellie likes to chase kitties, but when disciplined not to, she listens well

A few of those are true… i’ll let you work out which ones…

Unfortunately, I think Ellie is a popular name for dogs

Smoking ban

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/6583865.stm

Call me an insensitive non-smoker, but this makes little sense to me:

Smokers should be given time off work to quit before the 1 July ban, NHS experts say.

Do smokers need time off to stop smoking?? I thought that not smoking was something you could do whilst doing other things?
