... here's your entry people. *pats*

[edit] Wow, you have to watch this!! Amazing 1st hand Katrina report. Yes it's long, but it's worth it! [/edit]

I don't actually have much to say. J said I should do a "Charlie & birthday" update, so I'll give it a go. And I'll try to add some general "my life" info.

Charlie is my new cam (name suggested - again - by J. As was my dinner tonight - Dominos pizza!! Hm, anything I do seems to be suggested by her these days :P). Charlie is very very very very sexy. Mainly cuz she's so tiny (yes it's a she. the cams always are). Oooh she's so tiny! Which makes her very sexy. =P~ She also has a very fun "Best Shot" feature which is great for retards like me who can't figure out the best settings for any given shot. It's basically lots of presets like twilight, backlight, scenery, softly flowing water & whatnot. And then of course there's antishake. Very fun. And oh so tiny! =P~

So I've been carrying that around most the time (because it's so tiny you know... ok I'll shut up now). And took lots of pics. Wanna see some? Ok. (incl. some pointless animations lol)

The two piers. At dusk. Taken with Charlie's "sundown" preset. :P

Um this is my desk at work (& Christa's feet!). The balloons are just temporary. :))

Me at work!!! Not sure who took this pic; probably Ingmar.

Brighton. North Laine. Colourful houses. Taxi.

Yeah she has persil growing out of her rucksack. :P
There was some "food & drink fair" at the Corn Exchange today.

Pavilion Gardens. Pretty right? Except for the bin. So I edited that out.
But couldn't resist showing you both versions. :P

Old Steine, fountain, Frank-in-Steine café, people

The Pavilion at night (incl. ugly scaffolding)....

... and again. Well, part of it anyway.

Check out the antishake! Yes it's a bit blurred, but this is me holding the cam in the middle of the street, and I have notoriously shaky hands! The headlight lines give you an idea how long the aperture was. Cool ja? :D

An animation of the Palace Pier. Sea moving, Pier lights changing, and if you look carefully you can see a cyclist whizzing past on the prom.
(this was taken with tripod tho, hehe)

Yeah so that's that. What else is new... yesterday was work night out, I ended up staying a little longer than I'd planned (originally I was gonna bugger off as soon as I'd used up my free drinks vouchers lol). It was fun I guess, I learnt some new office gossip and had some interesting conversations.

Here's a general boring pic of Work Night Out for illustration purposes.

Jaja. Been doing some overtime (and will again on Monday - 10hr day - eek!) which I have negotiated to exchange for flexitime - another precious half day off! I think that leaves me with 4.5 days. Not quite sure what to do with them yet. Might just go see Mon again (but first I am going to see her for 9 days starting next Sat!! wheeeeeeeeeee!!!). Or maybe I'll even go to Lux.

Ja and then today was my birthday, I turned 28, which is very old. I got presents from Katja & Tobias (very very cool Art books, and WillyWonkadroolbook=P~, and gay vampire stories lmao) and from my Lo (colourful stuff!!!!!!!!!! :x :x :x). Apparently more stuff is underway... so may do present-picture-entry at a later date. Oh and Tommy called. :x

I spent the day first shopping for hair stuff, then doing laundry and cleaning the flat, which was way overdue. Now it's all squeaky clean and I need not be ashamed when my blowhole sees it tomorrow. Ja cuz tomorrow Vega and the blowhole and I will go for a picnic at Devil's Dyke. :-) No doubt more pictures will be taken. :P

End of your entry people.

People say...

what is up with the beyond dull outfit?

Kal, what's with the rudeness?
It's my MoMA T-shirt & it's very cool. I love my MoMA T-shirt.

Wow. Computer technology confsues me. How did you make the sea move etc?!?

And Happy Birthday! Hope it was all colourful and wonderful and continues to be so.

It's an animated gif. Really not very sophisticated at all.
