Vitamin Water

This guy rules.  If I ever go to Japan, I want to meet him.  We found some videos he’d made a while ago, reviewing electro music equipment, like vocoders.  But he also stretches to reviewing yogurt and now… vitamin water.

Snow Leopard

I’m looking forward to getting my hands on this OS upgrade for my mac.  One of the main benefits is that it takes up 7GB less space – always good.  Also Snow Leopard just sounds cool.

Ed tells me that an improved operating system is like a good manager – better at breaking up tasks and delegating them appropriately, not micro-managing with the check-backs, better utilising the resources available and so on.

New personal aim: Be more like Snow Leopard.

Origami flowers


I saw this in the paper ages ago, and finally got round to making one of these flowers myself last week.  I followed this video tutorial.  The presenter guy is pretty low-key, but you know its paper folding, not a high impact sport you’re learning here.

Hopefully I’ll get round to making 10 or more, and put them onto a trail of fairy lights like in the picture above.

A Brum Weekend

The weekend started well with a Flying Start 2 unofficial reunion dinner at ours.  Lex made a fantastic apple pie which finished our meal off nicely.  Lovely to catch up with everyone.

Saturday, Ed and I cycled over to Hockley for the Flyover Show headed up by the inspiring Soweto Kinch.  It really was under a flyover, as you can see.  Good vibe and an eclectic mix of music – from hip-hop to verging-on-classical type jazz glockenspiel!

Today we headed over to catch the last hour of Stan’s Cafe’s 24 Hour Scalextric.  Impressive commentary from James and Craig, who kept it up for the full 24 hours, and were still keeping the crowd entertained with their sometimes hilarious free-associating right up to the final minute.
