A comparison between driving and guitar playing
Monday 14th August 2006 8:15 pm

The trouble with going away is that I forget how crap the network at work is. Plus our IT guy is away, which is a signal to it to go completely screwy.

On Friday I cut my nails (a sad pre-requisite) and got my guitar out for the first time in a couple of months, I think. This was on the basis that no-one was in to hear how much worse I'd got for not practising, plus I wanted to try and calm down a bit before my driving lesson. The latter worked and after a bit I wasn't too bad. I'm forcing myself to get back into a routine of practising straight after dinner and tonight I was back up to where I was before.

I had a conversation with dad about this at the weekend. I keep thinking that driving should really not be that hard because so many people can do it - and some of them really are complete idiots (most of whom I seem to meet when trying to cross the road). But on the other hand an awful lot of people seem to be able to play the guitar and that's hard. Dad did point out that they've had many years of practise - and if they can't play you don't get to hear them in public. In all fairness, a greater percentage of the population can drive than can play the guitar.

It didn't help that I discovered that I can't play and sing at the same time. Not being able to talk and play at the same time I'm fine with because I could never do that while playing the organ and I learnt that for ten years. But the singing thing is a problem because I can't get enough space to breathe probably. And if I hold the guitar further away from my chest I can't get my hand round enough. I much prefer playing tunes anyway.

I posted the latest part of my longest fic I've written ever last night: Dream a Little Dream part 2

And a meme that I've seen in at least two places this evening:

Wikipedia Birthday meme
Saturday 8th April 2006 5:07 pm

I wasn't going to do this but checked it out anyway and had entirely forgotten the interesting people who share my birthday.

Go to Wikipedia. In the Search box, type your birth month and day (but not year). List three events that happened on your birthday. List two important birthdays and one interesting death.

1809 - Mary Kies becomes the first woman awarded a US patent, for a technique of weaving straw with silk and thread.
1961 - Mercury program: Mercury 3 – Alan Shepard becomes the first American to travel into space, making a sub-orbital flight of 15 minutes.
2005 - The United Kingdom general election takes place, in which Tony Blair's Labour Party are re-elected for a third, consecutive term. [although a whole lot less exciting than the 3rd May 1979 and 1st May 1997 elections]

1943 - Michael Palin, British writer, actor, and comedian
1957 - Richard E. Grant, British actor

1821 - Napoleon I of France (b. 1769)

Copy & paste the first sentence of your first post for every month of 2005:

January 2005: A multi-part post.
February 2005: Happy Birthday for yesterday, Nessime.
March 2005: I wrote down a list of all the things I went to, then a list of all the ones I wanted to go to and it was almost as long. [This is in reference to Redemption 05]
April 2005: Just a quick hello from Melbourne.
May 2005: I should really post this when I’m feeling more awake but I just won’t get round to it otherwise.
June 2005: I discovered today I didn’t quite manage to tape The Dead Zone last night.
July 2005: This weekend’s been good and bad.
August 2005: I have been good and updated my website.
September 2005: This morning I got an adaptor for my keyboard at work.
October 2005: (Although I started writing this yesterday, so I’m technically a bit late with that, never mind) [In reference to the post title: Happy New Year
November 2005: Which is entirely true, but sadly, I can’t write it. [In reference to the post title: You can't make it up]
December 2005: I realised the other day that I hadn’t had any emails from the Blakes 7 lyst.

It's nice to be home but I am so tired!

Tee hee. How true.

Been playing with googlism, here are the funniest results (it doesn't know what paranoidangel is):

nic is a gem
nic is not detected
nic is easy if you follow the steps below
nic is 'bad'
nic is ok
nic is easy to setup
nic is freezing up is because you're clicking the mouse while the nic is accessing its cd software
nic is one of those rare people who have a skill of looking through a viewfinder and knowing whether a good picture is there or not
nic is required
nic is the 'national leader' in providing this kind of information
nic is the new wonder child of the navigation industry
nic is the best and most affordable internet computer money can buy

Slept late both today and yesterday, which was good for a change. Although did wake up about 4.15am and couldn't get back to sleep for a while. Had this really strange (short) dream about 3 times, each time the ending was slightly different. I worry, I really do.
