I haven’t disappeared on purpose or intentionally – stuff is just getting a wee bit in the the way of blogging at the mo, but hopefully, all shall return to normal sporadic blogging soon.

Stuff that got in the way:

- Laptop breaking

- Laptop being fixed but losing internet for no Goddamn reason

- Being sick (nowt serious of course, it just left me in bed for a week)

- Life stuff that I no like blogging about

- The quick dip-in-and-out-edness of Twitter. I’m not an addict by any means, but I do quite like it right now.

Speaking of Le Twit – here are six weird and wonderful (but mainly weird) things people have built with Twitter. Nifty!



Stephen Fry on Jonathan Ross on Twitter

I’m very new to all this Twitter business. Keep forgetting I actually have an account (http://twitter.com/Anneelicious, if you’re interested) but I have to say, I can see how it could become fairly addictive.  Especially if you’re following Stephen Fry whilst he’s on Jonathon Ross.

It’s all a bit surreal really!



This makes me want an iPhone…

… I have the dog part down.

“iPhone-enabled dogcam and treat dispenser”.

Some clever dude has rigged up his iPhone with a webcam so he can check in on his doggy pal at home. Even better, he’s set up a treat dispenser for the dog, and all he has to do is press a button on the phone to release the treat!

What a smart cookie.

My own worst enemy…

I’m following a certain reality TV programme in America. It’s cheesy, shallow, over dramatic, and full of pretty people with even prettier pictures. Telly heaven.

The finale of said reality show was on last night across the pond and hence, I am in a spot of bother. Do I sit on my hands until the programme is available via the magic of the interwebs? OR do I ruin it for myself by looking up the winner, also via the same cursed magic…

The urge to know is rather annoying. It’s like my Christmas present is right there in front of me, with a teeny tiny tear in the wrapping that if I just lifted ever so slightly…. No, I shouldn’t. I won’t.

I want to enjoy the climatic moment – the split second when the winner’s pretty picture is revealed, whilst empathising with her poor competitor who stands alone, crushed and ignored.

Le Sigh. I may just have to flip on it.

Bebo, shmeebo

I finally deleted my Bebo profile today after mulling it over for a very, verrry long time.  On reflection, I could have used some of that time to save some of the photos that I had on it, as I’m doubtful I had them saved elsewhere. Not to worry though.  

I am on BookFace but I’m still a relative ‘noob’ at it  compared to others. I only kept the bebo open for so long to keep in touch with people who haven’t yet made the move. The feckers. When I logged in today to open what turned out to be a spam message, I saw that my last real comment had been 19 weeks ago and the one before that over 30. Also, the bright pink butterflies dotted about the page were kind of cringeworthy. Pretty but cringeworthy. 

And so, in a flurry of now or never, I clicked the ‘I must be crazy but I want to cancel my membership’ link. Insulting, ey? Crazy me.  

Facebook FTW :)

A just because…

In the midst of all the kerfuffle over at the blogpound , I got to thinking about blogging and its purpose. Well that was after trailing off on thoughts about Sex and the City after typing ‘I got to thinking’… But anyway I digress…

It made me wonder why we have to justify why we blog – why we have to worry about what people want out of reading other blogs and writing their own. And with that said, let me justify mine. Ahem.

My personal take on blogging is that I like to share my various rambling thoughts and youtubes and linky nonsense that might interest someone else in some way or another. If nobody cares, so be it. However, I do love to see the comments and input that others have kindly left here and to be honest, I genuinely can’t see anything wrong with that. They’re always a lot smarter and wittier than what I wrote in the first place which is great fun to read :)

Whilst some may say the blogging community has shifted, I would slightly disagree in that I think it has grown and expanded. It’s the interwebs people; it’s a big place with plenty of room for all sorts of blogs. It’s not a limited space – whilst one type of blog may grow, it doesn’t meant it has to outshadow another.

But anyways, my whole point about my personal take on blogging is this live performance by the Esbjörn Svensson Trio. It has absolutely nothing to do with blogs or the internet or Twenty Major of course, it is simply a performance which I adore and would like to share with anyone who passes by this blog. (Sad history of EST here)

I promise, I will never justify my blog again :)
