Wow....100 blog posts. Who'd a thunk it. I actually started writing for fun back in the halcyon days of 2008 but didn't really get my blog head on properly until 2009. I was planning a big old celebration for reaching 100 (in blog years) but all I ended up doing was thinking about it. So here, briefly, are my thoughts. I've mentioned this before so if you’ve already read before please feel free to skip to the next bit of twaddle.
Writing a blog for me is a pressure value release type thingy (nice use of a technical term there). I write because I find it a cathartic experience. Real life can be, at times, a grind and waffling on my own little island in this ocean we call the internet is just plain fun as far as I'm concerned.
Went a wee bit philosophical there didn’t I. Can't be having that can we.
Enough of the preamble. What's in the grey matter I like to call my brain today. Lets give it a shake and see what falls out.
Pot Noodle, Wagon Wheels and Ruffle Bars
A million years ago when I was a nipper I remember that things were bigger. It certainly seemed that way? I was thinking about this the other day. The thought process goes something like this - Is it just because I am grown up (I use the term very loosely) things appear smaller or have items I recall as a child actually shrunk? I experienced this niggling doubt recently when I purchased a Pot Noddle - it seemed to be much smaller than I remember.
The same seems to be true of a lot of sweets I used to enjoy as well. I used to love Raspberry Ruffle Bars. They used to be bigger damn it. I'm also 100% sure that Wagon Wheels used to be the size of a small plate. Do they even sell them anymore?
Less than 100KM to go
As a little update, in case anyone cares. I have cycled past the 400KM mark on my epic journey. I now have a minuscule 93KM to go. This has been a real challenge for me and I'm quite (ok very) smug about it. I had no idea at the start of this year I would manage this. Ever since I broke my back I have struggled to exercise effectively but I think I have finally found something that works for me so yay!
What Tattoos Do You Do?
I have been considering getting more ink. I already have a number of tattoos but I think I want more. I'm a firm believer that tattoos should mean something to you. All the ink I have certainly means something to me. Yes even the tattoo of Bugs Bunny. (Long involved story I won't go into here but get me drunk and I will happily ramble on for hours). At present I cant decide what way to go. I should probably start by getting the Celtic knot work piece on my arm finished. Then perhaps next I should go with something in-keeping with my character? Maybe a self portrait?
After writing this bit above I discovered my sister got a new tattoo today. That has to be some sort of strange cosmic convergence or something?
I guess as long as there is an interweb I will continue to prattle on. If your interested keep reading, who knows what we’ll find out. If not don’t let the virtual door hit you on the ass on the way out.
