Some people dread the big 30. Personally I had a few brief moments of doubt before my birthday over the last few months, but nothing too panicky. The day finally came, and strangely I still feel the same. No earth shattering drama here. I don’t really have any regrets when it comes to life, and [...]
Finally, the last day of the month. Almost fitting that the last day will be number 31 for a 30 day blogging challenge…
I must say I hoped I would enjoy the writing more. It made me realize that in fact I should be writing (almost) daily, but the content is meant to go to several [...]
Struggling to find a topic today. I have a few backups
Why I love my Win8 What the heck is a phablet What makes an engaging post (not really this one…) Daily word counts
However for most of these I have a specific idea about what I wanted to write about, and what I wanted [...]
Today when I checked my letterbox in the afternoon I had a surprise waiting for me. At first I though it was more tax related paperwork, then for a brief panic moment I though I’ve been sued, to finally realize it was a summoning for jury duty. Phew.
A lot of people when they see [...]
This Sunday together with my partner we spent a good several hours dismantling our kitchen sink and trying to clean out a blockage that has gotten so bad that the sink would look more like a swimming pool the moment the tap was run. With the outrageous rates that professions such as plumbers charge I do prefer [...]
In some respects I’m a bit old fashioned. One of the things this includes is my favourite pastime - playing table top role-playing games. Never understood the fun of sitting over alcohol in a pub too loud to hear your own thoughts let alone have a conversation. Board games and traditional role playing games combine social interaction with creativity [...]
The moment I saw the trailer for Django, I knew I wanted to see this in the cinema. I love most of Quentin Tarantino’s movies and how outrageous, silly, and action packed they are. And the movie didn’t disappoint.
I was actually surprised how many twists and plot points there were. Maybe it’s the usually simplistic plot [...]
So I read this book today, I couldn’t put the thing down. The main character was annoying at points, there were things that should have been obvious to various characters, some of them behaved in stupid ways, some things about the world didn’t make sense, or weren’t explored enough for a satisfying conclusion. The final showdown wasn’t [...]
I must have caught something between a cold and a flu, as I’ve been feeling like a zombie hit by a bus for the last few days. It does not help meeting blogging deadlines…
Usually when I feel off, on most days I’ll just try and work through it, maybe pick up some of the [...]
When it comes to writing pen names are often a hot topic. Some people see them as dishonest, others as a necessity. I did spend quite a bit of time thinking about the issue and whether to use a pen name myself or not.
There are plenty of good arguments made for both side out [...]
