A sadder, emptier world

Today the world became a slightly emptier place as one of the true visionaries of our time passed away.

Arthur C. Clarke, you will be missed by many and remembered through the thoughts and ideas you willingly shared with us.

Winter


After having a lovely warm season with flowers and green grass and mostly rain and wind as cold weather, it started snowing yesterday. So, winter finally arrives in march.

Time to move!

So.

Hyper. Got the keys for the new flat yesterday. Moving saturday (three whole days left only!). Tomorrow mother is coming to help me focus my attention on packing.

Got problems sleeping, so hyper due to the move and also because it is the Week of Interrupted Sleep. I keep getting up in the night, though I have mostly managed to get back to sleep after refreshing the Current Standings page. Another good source of information can be found here, and here is the route they use this year.

Other news.. Trying to relearn NOT to hit enter after every word in Irc. I think I am getting better already but only time will tell. Hopefully the internet connection will already be working in the new flat when I move in - else I will be offline for a while.

So.. well.. not much more to say. Other than.. PLEASE come and help me move saturday... :)

Party Swan

A single photo from last weekend's costume party where I was taking pictures (this is just testing settings before the guests arrived).

Totally unedited. I am fairly pleased. Not sure how to enhance it, I need to find someone to teach me heh...
