Broken post on a broken site

Apr 1, 2008 by glennji

I still don’t have an Internet connection at home, so of course this website has sat un-used and without an update for a long time. Today it’s a slow day at work, so I thought I’d quickly write an update or two. Oh, and change the theme, at least until I can fix the original one.

Dee’s mum has arrived, and she traveled for 2 weeks around Europe with Dee — so jealous that I didn’t go, but it would’ve both changed the dynamic and made it a lot more expensive. They’re planning a trip to Scotland this week, then some weekend trips away (which I’ll be able to go on too). I got two presents from the European vacation: an espresso cup set (perfect for the coffee machine Dee bought me in December) and a “cut throat” razor (which I’ve wanted for a while – scary, but cool, and now I’m shaving my head and face I really should learn how to handle a razor).

Settling in with the housemates too, although it’s been a bit weird with Colleen of late — she’s finding religion but I worry about what it might do to her. I really like having Chris around, ‘though — he’s a good influence even when he’s trying not to be.

I hope we get the Internet back tomorrow. I miss it so.

Whilst Dee and Jules play videogames downstairs, I sit in a beanbag in my makerspace and contemplate the various hardware projects that I would like to complete over the next couple of years.

I guess I should update the ‘blog?1 Not an easy thing to do these days, since even finding the time to do something as self-indulgent as public journaling probably just means there’s something else I could be doing instead, but maybe it’s an experiment I would like to continue?

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
