Photo Friday: Best of 2005

The photo:

photo: shells

A while ago I contemplated occasionally taking part in the Photo Friday weekly photo challenge but forgot about it, not giving it a second thought. This morning I decided to create a photo category for the blog and remembered about Photo Friday.. somewhat ironically right at the end of the year but heyho. :p

Anyway, I picked the photo above because although it’s not my best photo it does remind me of one of the best times I had this year — my first break at the seaside with Karl. Although the weather was pants, I got to have a proper rest and saw some cool little sea creatures. Oh, and that’s when I found my heart-shaped rock, too. :) So, yes.. this is my best of 2005.

(Ps. new theme.)

Cough! Splutter!

To Karl: “I think I’ll have a glass of orange juice to increase my CSS levels.” I think I meant Vitamin C levels. You’d think this cock-up would be to do with my terrible illness minor cough, but in actual fact these geeky man eating penguins.. eh.. where was I? Oh yes.. geeky moments. They… read full entry »

ho ho ho!

Christmas was good. Karl and I didn’t get much sleep on Christmas Eve because of my excited fidgeting and the fact we were sleeping on one of those crappo airbed thingies on my Mum’s front room floor, and the kids (my younger brothers & sister) wouldn’t stop bickering.. but I got some great presents for… read full entry »

E-mail Replies

If you’ve sent me an e-mail recently (asking questions, tutorial requests, etc), chances are very high I won’t reply until after Christmas (possibly New Year) now. The same goes for posting on forums, qbee patch trades, etc. Although I’ve managed to finish my Christmas shopping I’ve got lots of things to do around the house… read full entry »

Ubuntu, baby!

So. Karl was fiddling with Ubuntu on his Desktop PC last night and after stealing my wireless key managed to get it working on Linux. Wooh. I took the mega scary oh-my-god my-laptop-is-going-to-die step this afternoon and HOORAH! I am now a linux n00b! My wifi key picked up the network straight away, and well….. read full entry »

Review of

Reviewed: Vixx Site URL: I’m reviewing your default layout. It’s hard to sum up a first impression when I see a site at least three-four times daily to check to see if there’s any new weblog updates. You must be doing something right to keep me coming back so regularly though. There’s something so… read full entry »


All he wanted was a best friend… I forgot to mention that I made a Katy fanlisting a couple of weeks ago. So, if you thing Katy is great you should check out Geekerific. Don’t you think it’s the most original name ever? And of course, you could always check out my fanlisting while you’re… read full entry »

Boss’s Orders!

My Boss told me before I left work this afternoon that I had to blog about how he has educated my musical tastes over the past two days because he’s been playing some old Christmas music. I actually want to blog about how much I’d love to shove the CDs somewhere not-so-CD-shaped because now I… read full entry »

More on the Q*bee

This, this, this, this, this and this, this, this and this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this and this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this …all reasons as to why I love the quilting bee. One simple idea, a thought.. it’s taken, turned, adapted, thought about,… read full entry »

Style Loading Time

I have known for a long time that there is a difference between the load time of a site using inline styles and a site using a stylesheet: I didn’t realise how much difference! I uploaded my own without finishing things off, really — I’d forgotten to move my style to a stylesheet and hadn’t… read full entry »

‘New’ Archives, New Clique

I’ve been slowly but surely moving over some of the updates from my wordpress weblog/s over the years to this blog so as to give a better picture of my website over the years. It’s actually not as interesting as I thought it would be because most of the posts are “omg new layout!!” —… read full entry »

Web Page Updates

Review-You now has its own RSS Feed which, if you like to read web page reviews, you can add to your Firefox Bookmarks and see ‘live’ when new reviews are added. So, that’s um.. just me adding it to my feed reader then? ;) (Vix: I’ll finish your review by the end of the week.)… read full entry »
