The Final Countdown?

Here's an interesting concept I found whilst browsing the net, which im still struggling with as still no connection of our own. I tell you if it weren't for people who had no clue and dont lock their wireless connection I would be buggered. But hey thanks for them too ; )

Apparently we go live tomoz, lets see hey.

Anyhoo, the idea being tested is this:-

It is obvious that people would find life extremely difficult without computers, maybe even impossible. If they disappeared for just one day, would we be able to cope?

Be a part of one of the biggest global experiments ever to take place on the internet. The idea behind the experiment is to find out how many people can go without a computer for one whole day, and what will happen if we all participate!

Shutdown your computer on this day and find out! Can you survive for 24 hours without your computer?

Just for confirmation - HELL NO! a day without a computer is like erm, erm, think quick?! brain ceasing, like a REAL bad day! pheeww nearly ending up looking stupid, lol.

By the power of Greyskull!

Well, this was certainly a wonderful weekend! Adam came down on Friday so after work went out for a few drinks, and he got quite drunk - result!

On Saturday we went into Camden Towns markets and wonderful streets to see what joys were to be had, haggled after the price of a watch for Adam, got it at a good price too, worth the haggling, then realised the batery didnt work, lol oh well - result No.2!

Then on to Leicester Square to watch HOT FUZZ! and wow was it cool so funny - worth the £26, well almost!!!! I thought at that cost they would have thrown in the DVD!

Then on Sunday we went to China Town again but this time to let in the Chinese New Year and what a spectacle, dancing dragons, sweet smelling food, crowds of people and I mean crowds, and fireworks! all in all was a great weekend.

It was good to catch up with Adam and share our lives once again, I only hope its not too long before we do it again - its amazing how quickly one day blurs into the next.

Well in case you missed it here are a few pictures I took, not brilliant and I found out I had the camera on the wrong setting as the shutter speed was too slow, silly me.
Also uploaded a video I took and quickly edited in some music etc, enjoy.

Oh well im off to get a cornetto, so jog on.

Its Snow Joke

So, yet another weeks past, boy do they fly by.

Anyway what have I been upto? Well I dyed my hair a cool fiery red colour, and had it restyled. Woke up to a world full of snow! Funnier still woke Carrie up to show her then went straight back to sleep, lol.
Shame is it didn’t last long, global warming or just seasons falling out of sync? Who knows, maybe aliens?? Either way it was only around for a day and boy what chaos it caused; I can’t help but find it amusing, how we struggle to cope (we as a nation: that is). and they claim we've elvolved - doesn't look like it.

I’m busy working on a few projects right now, can’t say much all hush hush, but if they come to fruition all will be revealed.

Well we are without internet and knowing how broadband providers are I am guessing for some time, so this is being wrote on my laptop with a view to being posted when we have connection again, not holding my breath for anytime soon.
It’s funny because you get quoted 30 minutes to change providers, with full knowledge it’s more likely to be 2 weeks. Anyway lets see if they can prove us wrong. Personally I wouldn’t have changed as they are all as bad as each other, and not one really gives the service they promise to deliver, because we aren’t built to take broadband, they are just making the best of what they have, which isn’t much.

This weekend I’m taking a trip to Leicester to see you China and catch up with some peeps, which will be nice, Adam is coming down next weekend, so I’m looking forward to that, probably go watch HOT FUZZ; Simon Pegg rocks! It’s also the Chinese New Year that weekend, so probably go see what on offer, should be good.

Right now im listening to The Hours; the lead singer of Radiohead has formed a new group, and i must say the album is really cool. my favourite lyric is:

Well that last posting wasn’t true of course!
Dade just found a cool picture he wanted to use!

Though there was a little shark in the pool we got to chase around! In reality though we looked more like this:

It was great fun though! Basically it was a trial dive, to see what it was like and if we liked it, AND WE DID!!

I was (secretly) a little nervous that I wouldn’t be able to get the breathing under water thing right, but it was actually quite easy, though we both did come away with tense jaws from biting so hard on the mouth piece to make sure it didn’t come out!

We spent about an hour in the pool, descending and ascending, and scrambling around the bottom of the pool. I think we both got the hang of it reasonably well. Better than the other girl having a go who kept panicking and wanting to go back up.

It was a really odd sensation – very peaceful in that all you could hear was water bubbling around you and your own breathing – kinda relaxing until you starting thinking about what you were doing again! Oh, and although you can cough whilst underwater, it doesn’t pay to laugh, cos then your mask starts filling up with water, and water bubbles up your nose! Not good when every time I looked at Dade he made me laugh! The more I tried not to laugh the more he made me laugh!!

We both really really enjoyed it, so now have to start saving our pennies and become PADI qualified so that we can go exploring beautiful foreign aquatic paradises….

Narrated by Carrie

Back from beyond...

Well okay, she did make it but she was nearly late. Well what an experience that turned out to be. Having never dived and Carrie neither we both really enjoyed it.

We went to a dive school close to us, where we were greeted and taken through the basics about diving - it turns out the MOST important thing to do is breathe, weird being told that when we naturally do it already, but underwater you naturally dont breathe, so the first few breathes were apprehensive.

We had a great instructor and a very small group just three of us.
We got to swim with a shark!! Honest no lies! A "Carcharodon carcharias rubberus" is the scientific name - commonly known to you and I as a "rubber great white shark" but hey it was pretty scary, lol.

Well after spending over an hour in the pool and swimming about underwater my fingers looked like prunes so it was time to leave, so with saddened heart and water in our lungs we left. But it has given us a taste for adventure, so more things planned to do. Rock climbing will probably be the next one as there is supposed to be a great wall in Shepherds Bush (theres also a great wall in China, but thats different).

Anyway gotta dash things to do and all that, catch ya later.
