Randomness

As I remarked to a friend today, I’m so much of a Google fanboi it’s almost embarrasing. I use Google Mail, Google Mail For Your Domain, Google Personalised Homepage, Google Personalised Search, Google Search History, Google Desktop, the Google Toolbar for Firefox, and now Google Notebook as well. I’ve been using notebook to keep clips of interesting things. You can see my raw notebook. I was going to mention a few highlights here, but on reflection, none of them seem quite as interesting any more, so I won’t.

I was going to talk about some other things, such as my work, but all my thoughts have evaporated. Instead, I’m just going to go away and play Civilisation.

Oh – I will mention that I was at Shock of the New III tonight, and it was fantastic. Not all of the pieces were entirely to my liking, but the way they were put together was fantastic.

We’re having a paintball day soon at work. I found out today that I’ve been chosen as one of the team captains, and both my manager and his manager are on my team… Hrm.

I’ve started using Bon Echo Alpha 2 today, and just discovered the Nightly Tester Tools extension, which allows me to use most of my other extensions even though they’re (technically, according to the version headers) incompatible. Having the best of both worlds is fantastic – Bon Echo is much much faster than version 1.5, and stable enough (for me) to be used as my main browser.

I’m finding myself more and more in love with Glen. The challenge of balancing time spent with him with time spent alone or with other friends is still present; if I’m not careful I end up spending too much time with him. On the whole, I’m very pleased with how things are going though.

I intend to following up the relationship posts one of these days; for now, all I’ll say is that the most honest reason anyone has yet given me for preferring monogamy in a relationship is that they’re too jealous to be able to handle anything else. In short, I don’t think that’s a valid excuse, any more than expecting your partner to not speak to anyone else on the grounds that it made you too jealous would be.

Eurovision… let’s just not go there.

I think that’s about all for now. Time for me to play some Civilisation…
