Switching off the ‘puter before I go out, so just time to say: thanks for following, and happy new year to you all. (Even the haterz.) x
RT @andrew_mueller: It’s nearly 2010, and actual adult human beings are still having these sorts of arguments. http://is.gd/5HH75

RT @kateweb: @girlonetrack It could so easily be the prequel - ‘Girl With A One Track Mind: the Teenage Years’. http://bit.ly/8u15Z1 <Ha!
What I didn’t want to be doing on New Year’s Eve: exporting XML files to ensure I have a back up of 21,000 comments before they get deleted.
RT @DaveGorman: So, 2010-2019=tenties. 2020-2029=twenties. 2030-2039=twwenties. 2040-2049=twwwenties 2050-2059=twwwwenties. Good. Everyo …
RT @PeterTatchell: My heroes of 2009? The pro-democracy protesters in Iran. Beaten, shot,
jailed, tortured and raped, they never give up …
Painful ear infection + unable to wear earplugs + loud traffic outside my flat = <4 hours sleep ∴ will be a moody bitch all day.
Just watched Moon (finally). Sam Rockwell needs an instant Academy Award. Wow.
I guess I’m going to have to join in with the #SamRockwellOscar for Moon tag; but then it IS a very worthy bandwagon. Jump on!
Every time you spell it this way, a dolphin gets run over by a jet ski: http://bit.ly/4AYMbb LOVE this.
This http://bit.ly/8bVOww is even funnier: Why it’s better to pretend you don’t know anything about computers. « I’m in a comic mood today.
Who ya gonna call? http://bit.ly/5vAlvS What with this, and Tron 2, I’m getting to relive my childhood loves once again.

Silently cursing @haloscan for forcing me to export six years of blog comments, rather than use their new -crap- bloated commenting system.
Meaningful connections are more valuable than number of followers: life on Twitter’s Suggested User list, by @anildash http://bit.ly/8xZb9y
Just realised I joined Twitter three years (and one week) ago. First person to wish me a happy ‘Twanniversary’ gets a fucking smack.
Now suspecting that a significant proportion of my followers are masochists. Smacks (and spanks) going out to the fucking lot of you.

I’ve been ill for 17 days; I think I need a(nother) holiday to recuperate.

Watching Time Marxes On, a doco on (my favourites) The Marx Brothers. Timeless comedy.
With the amount of pills I’ve got inside me, if you picked me up and shook me, I’d rattle rather loudly.
Watching March of The Penguins and counting down how long it’ll be before I cry. 10..9..8..7..
Forget praising a non-existent deity: right now I’m on my knees worshipping science and modern medicine for making me feel better.
After 3 hours in A&E this morning, I’m relieved to now be drugged up to my eyeballs, watching Life of Brian with my family. Merry Xmas, all!
The ear wicks in my ears have rendered me almost deaf; watching 300 on full volume, all I can grasp are grunts. (And partial male nudity.)

The Story of Slapstick = YES.
Unimpressed by my insomnia.
A message to my pain: please do fuck off, thank you kindly.
The sun’s out again, so I’m off to the beach. Going to attempt to read my first ever romance novel (the ONLY English book I can find here).
Dear Mr. Jobs, please hurry up and release your iTablet, I’m ready to ditch the annoyance of my Asus Eee, pronto. #ihatethisfuckinglinuxshit
Luckily for me, the bartenders appreciate my pathetic attempts at speaking Spanish, and give me quadruple measures of alcohol. ¡Salud!
Are you referring to the splendid rack of lamb I ate last night, @Bumwhackit? It was very juicy indeed.
RT @abcoates: @girlonetrack I’m hoping the iTablet will be in 2 colours - choose the red tablet, or the blue tablet. «I want one in purple!
It’s true, I do need a little time with a geek, @TheWizardTower. But I doubt I’d be pressing him about Linux.
RT @Han: Dear London, this is hardly a lot of snow. Please learn to deal with it. Remember when this happened last year? Yes, exactly. <Sigh
I might reattempt last night’s alcohol+drugs+alcohol self-medication tonight - but with more enthusiasm.
So, what you’re saying is that I might be stuck in the Canary Islands over Christmas due to the excessive snow in the UK? Hmm.
Large red wine + Advocaat + 2 x Ricard + Ibruprofen + Paracetamol + Codeine = still having period pain. The drugs don’t work; I give up.
Sending work emails at 11.30 on a Sunday night, whilst on HOLIDAY (and drunk). Someone shoot me now..
Noting that my mosquito bites are coming along nicely. (Eg. Nicely swollen and infected. Stupid over-active immune system, grr.)
I command* all my American followers/blog readers/book fans to go here http://bit.ly/7E1jLg and vote for me. *Well beg, actually. Please? x
In other news, I was the ONLY non-nude person in the spa today. My objective, by holiday’s end, is to lose my British anxiety and go nekkid.
Don’t worry @khaylock, like Blue Peter, I’m always prepared: my mons pubis represents Britain with a red, white and blue Union Jack.
Sadly I’ve already read all my books. The only books in English at the hotel are a fantasy/sorcery adventure & a romance. Desperate times…
