not designed for early mornings

By Blog No Comments

Whoa! – Man i’m a tired boy! Today I went into JohnPaul & Suzannes offices in Pimlico to give Suzanne training on their audio visual ger and editing on Final Cut Pro. So this morning I was up at 7:30 am!!! I know!!!! Shocking for me! Got the tube into the office with the two of em and we cracked on as soon as we got there.

 I’m really impressed with Suzanne and how she coped. Wehn you consider I was trying to pass on 6 years of accumulated knowledge to her in just one day. By about 4 o’clock we were both fading but the last 2 odd hours went well and we got through it all. I think she will need another days training as there was soooo much to take in.

By the end of play i was destroyed! I was also faced with a meeting at Tom’s. Some friends were due to go over there to have a meeting about future work and to have some brain storming on some creative ideas for TV. I had a quick call to my lovely beautiful lady before heading off to the pub. On the way back I got a text from Tom telling me it was cancelled. It was a relief to hear it. I struggled to stay awake on the tube home.

Now I’m home. I had some dinner and an involentary nap on the sofa while watching “Worlds Wildest Police Videos” Oh yes I have such great TV taste. Now I’m jus checking mail and am ghonna go to bed soon. This old man cant do long days!

A wee hello to Terry!I guess I should be sayin Good Mornin!

Last night in Steve’s honour we had a Burns night. We did the full traditional thing complete with speeches in bad scotish accents and haggis. Was a good night. I was knackered though. I got up early and i jus aint used to it!

 I went round to see Angie and we baked some delicuious Mocha Squares. They were yummy.

I met up with Ruth for  a coffee before that too – She is yummy.

And i also saw Bishwop and Ruth again – great!

That is all for now.

Yes today i find myself grining ear to ear becuase of a certain someone. Not quite ready to go public but needless to say the grin factor is high!

It was a good weekend. Friday eve my sis Angie picked me up and we wnet to the pub to see a friend do a Jazz set. Angie and I had a good ol natter. The first in a loooong time. It was ace even though it was an early night. The perils of parenthood for my dear Sis.

Sat I went to my folks for dinner. Had a nice meal with them and a good ol chat.

Sunday was the usual followed by the pub which was really quite good too. that certain source of grinage was present as were a bunch of other friends. I was forced into eating a bit of humble pie which was painful but also a very good thing. When i got home I watched the first 2 episodes of 24 season 6.

Jack is back!

Afterwards i started a new video graphics project. I’d been wanting to try something for a while and it clicked on how to do it while watching 24. The results so far were excellent.

Taday was spent sorting through all that and developing it further. However Orange are now threatenting to cut me off on my phone bill. The bastards  have still not sorted out their screw-up which is why i aint paid my bill. Then bulldog cut my broadband for the same reason. They too have still not sorted my bills! Argh.

But I’m still grinnin!

Stealth HD – Brand Development

good day!

Today was a gooooood day! Partly cause last night was a very very good night. Those involved will know why. Even though today did start on a weird note. I woke up after having a weird dream sort og gone badish. I dreamt that i was batman and i was running with catwoman. At one point Catwoman was jumping through the air between a couple of buildings. She was aiming to grab onto a pole traversing the two buildings but she wasn’t gonna make it so I as batman swung down to try and save her.

As we flew she just missed the pole but she was grabing out with her hands and her long claw-like fingernails were tapping off the pole. I then woke up to the same sound which was the ivy outside my window tapping on the glass. It was very odd indeed. Any readings into this would be appreciated.

My afternoon was pretty dull – didnt really get much done. This eve I went and had dinner at Victoria & Richard’s place and James was there too. We had chicken and it was gorgeous. a very tasty meal!

So all in all a good day!

PHP and techie stuff

By Techie, WordPress No Comments

ok so I really have bitten off a little more than i can chew on this whole wordpress game. I’ve found a few tutorial sites that show you how to build your own wordpress themes (the layouts and style) but they are all very complicated. It makes me realise how limited my webskills are. It is all PHP scripting and such which i have bugger all experience in and its alot to take in.

 Implementing the styles from my old site is looking to me more difficult than i previously hoped however its good as this means i will be advancing my knowledge of it all. Watch the site for more developments!
