If you're a regular reader to my blog, you'll probably notice that most of my blog posts consist primarily of pictures or imagery with some words accompanying said imagery. Usually, the words are few and far between - I'm not one for writing big essays about certain subjects on my blog because I don't think that's really what people are interested in reading. However, tonight shall be different.
Tonight I present to you a big long blog post. I'm in the mood for reading something long and informative and I thought what better thing to read that's long and informative than my own ramblings. It might not be interesting to everyone, but it may be to some of you. So, if you do read this blog post, it would be nice to receive some form of comment - if you have nothing in particular to say, just say hello or post a smilie - I'll appreciate it.
Right now I'm typing away on a little laptop. This is something I ordered a few weeks back, but was delivered yesterday; a Dell Inspiron Mini 9. Basically, it's a 9" laptop sans CD/DVD drive and it's really cool. So far tonight I've used it to stream Last.fm Radio to the kitchen speakers whilst I was cooking, watch and episode of Never Mind the Buzzcocks, full-screen on the BBC iPlayer, whilst eating my tea and now I'm listening to the latest episode of the Andrew Collins and Richard Herring Podcast.
I guess I'll just be using the mini-laptop for surfing the web when I'm not sat in front of my desktop computer. Also, I'll probably end up installing a Commodore 64 and Sega Mega Drive emulator, get a few good roms and use it to re-live my childhood gaming days. I didn't have a specific reason for buying the laptop other than the want to spend some money on expensive technology - it was preemptive comfort shopping too.
See, I'm officially no longer in a relationship with Vikki and today was the day that she moved out. Although what we both had together was good, we decided it was time to call it a day and so the past few weeks have been spent discussing things, moping about and also arranging for Vikki to move out and into a new house.
Although it was pretty much a mutual decision, our relationship was in no way bad - the idea is to move on and not ever let it get to that stage - but it is very strange to essentially lose someone who you've spent so much time with and around. But, it's all done now and I'm not going to talk about it much on my blog, I'm just going to have to adjust to living on my own in a big empty house - urgh, doing grown up stuff sucks.
I have loads of things to do at the minute; the kitten needs to be neutered, I need to make too many websites for people, I've just started a photography project of sorts, my Xbox 360 Elite needs to be fixed, I want to redecorate or rearrange the decor of this house, I finish working my notice period on Thursday and start a new job not long afterwards, people are coming to visit / stay over. Maybe this is where I should start to use my calendar, set myself deadlines and make sure I hit them.
