I was trying to talk to my cousin on MSN but i mistyped his screen name, which resulted in the following conversation with a (presumably french) hax0r:

(21:32:11) zoot has closed the conversation window.

the mysterious USB enclosure arrived , unfortunately the blue smoke escaped from the power supply after about 1/2 an hour of use, sigh.

hmm new musc player thingymagig + new headphones = better audio quality ergo I have noticed that Leonard Cohen’s “Take this longing” has a saxophone in the background.

It sounds like a sad elephant.

last week I was shopping for a drive enclosure for my USB box, it was late and i was probably drunk.

I distinctly remember filling out my details on a payment form somewhere, and how much it cost.

What i don’t remember is which website the form was on, i haven’t had any email or anything confirming the order.

I can’t find any clues in my browser cache and nobody has charged anything to my debit card.

some well-earned cheering

Oranges and Tomatoes

Thursday, August 4th, 2005

Dear Mr Sainsbury

Your oranges do not taste of orange, and your tomatoes do not taste of tomato. Oranges should not be blue on the inside except perhaps in Tintin films and they should not have mutant mini-oranges hiding inside them.

That is all.

So bought me a gliding mini-course at the Cotswold gliding club, which is the coolest birthday present ever.

I phoned up to book it this morning, and strangely enough the only weekend day they had free in the near future was Sunday September the 11th. I suppose there is very little risk of my glider being hijacked but my flying into a tall building?.. i guess we’ll leave that with the gods.
