I'd rather spend time with my friends than viewing their blogs but, since some of them are so far away, this medium (Is the Blogosphere a New Medium? Discuss) is a genuinely new way of keeping in touch... or at least keeping in touch with the public er... parts of their personalities. Alice and Cory have always been out there and they even make money out of theirs. Jamie's blog has been around for some time and while he doesn't make money out of the blog (as far as I know) he has written a book about blogging which is the next best thing. I would buy it, but I am secretly hoping for a free copy.

Brian, David and Irascible Ian are all more recent arrivals at the Blogging Ball but just look at all the stuff they have published. All these thoughts, stories, pictures - if we had dinner every week for a year we'd still never cover all this. But today, on a wet and humid afternoon, I have had some time to look around and it's been so much better than passing the time watching telly, or listening to Any Answers, or cleaning out the freezer (which is what I really should be doing).

And I'm listening to Lowell George singing I Can't Stand The Rain and thinking that in fact I Really Can.

Blogging really encourages procrastination and is proving even more addictive than Big Brother. How scary is that?

It's very easy to fall into the following pattern:
Should I do some real work or blog?

I think I'll blog.

Should I do my VAT return or blog?

I think I'll blog.

Should I clean the windows or blog?

I think I'll blog.

Well you get the picture.

Talking of blogs...

I like the addition of the duck --- or small, red-blue-green-and-yellow-bird-thing...

Did you rear it from an egg?

Profound in so many ways...

uncovering old lath and plaster

This morning this was a blue-painted wall which collapsed in less than two minutes in two almighty thumps revealing all this lovely lath and plaster work. This surely hasn't been seen since 1879 when the house was built and is a rather beautiful piece of handiwork. Sadly it will all be stripped out and replaced tomorrow with something less interesting and which probably won't last nearly as long.... but I am reliably told it has to be done.
And me and the builder are listening mainly to The Silver Seas.

playing with apps and pictures of cats...

I can't draw... plus I don't think there are pencils in the house any more so I have been playing with some photos and the PhotoSketcher app and these are the results. Who needs to draw now eh?
