Or wait, wait, wait ... but I prefer to dance. 🙂 It's how I'm wired. Currently, my wrist is driving me bonkers. Without wearing the wrist widget I can't do much without pain. There's only so much the wrist widget can do, it doesn't help much when I need to move heavy furniture to clean … Continue reading Dance, Dance, Dance.
Just for fun, let's imagine I'm not drinking? Yeah, didn't work did it? 🙂 🙂 Surprise ... It's Sunday night I fucking earned this Cab Sav. How, you say? By finishing THE FINAL byte short so I can get this last boxed set sorted. OMG. I know, right? Also, I'm doing something else with it … Continue reading It’s the weekend and whatnot
The weekend is over. It's full steam ahead into a new week!I'm talking to council on Thursday, pitching a project that involves Upper Hutt, our bookshop, and the greater Wellington Region. I'm hoping we get funding and then I can tell you all about it and start talking to some amazing local and regional authors … Continue reading Monday, Monday
This has been going on for a while now, but, fuck me, it's pretty annoying to a certain age group (mine). The thing is ... When you say "I'm working on myself." We want to know what kind of tools you're using. Is there a hammer? Has some body part come loose that needs reattaching? … Continue reading Have you noticed …?
I know someone who regularly tries to read my blog or reach my site but it's blocked in his current part of the world. I don't know why, potentially, I swear too much and have little regard for sensibilities. It will be interesting to see if Michael gets to see this post! 🙂 We all … Continue reading Neighbours from hell …
I figured it'd be about ten by the time I get this written, so, there ya go. :)As many of you are aware, on Friday we had a wonderful event at Upper Hutt Library called: Books with Byte. It was great fun. Books with Byte ends the byte series. We launched Vaporbyte (both versions) because … Continue reading News at 10.
https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3Ic9DrVLjVrgbCbnhgbGzq?si=9d831887e4ab49bf I spent quite a bit of time tonight adding songs to the "Books with Byte" event playlist on Spotify. And then, I started listening to "The Eclectic Redneck" playlist. It was originally a CD called The Eclectic R Word ... but if you say that now young folk think you mean a particular slur. … Continue reading The Dance
Part of me is delighted, because last year I knitted AWESOME jerseys but the rest of me is unimpressed because I like summer and very much dislike winter. (And it's coming!) Yesterday I wore my big purple knitted jacket, it was cold enough. Today, I'm working from home so an old hoodie will do the … Continue reading Almost jersey weather!
There are different kinds of listening. We know this. There's listening to understand and we should all do more of that, and then there are those people who aren't really listening, they're waiting for space to speak. Sometimes they don't even wait, they just talk right over people. Don't be them! Sometimes people appear to … Continue reading Listening … and writing.
I spend quite a bit of time thinking/wondering, to be honest. It's kinda part of the whole "I'm a writer" thing. If I didn't wonder about things then stories and books wouldn't be written. They're basically me thinking with my fingers on the keyboard. Sometimes it's subconscious, other times it isn't. Anyway, the other day … Continue reading Sometimes I wonder …
