Curator of ancient mystical secrets, your life on the surface is fairly typical these days. Though you are in denial about more things than most people. Nevertheless, you’re trying to convince people that you’re safe despite your more volatile and unstable times that seem to be behind you. You like cats a whole lot.
You’d probably really appreciate The Blue Pyramid.
Take the Country Quiz at the Blue Pyramid
You’re The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!
by C.S. Lewis
You were just looking for some decent clothes when everything changed quite dramatically. For the better or for the worse, it is still hard to tell. Now it seems like winter will never end and you feel cursed. Soon there will be an epic struggle between two forces in your life and you are very concerned about a betrayal that could turn the balance. If this makes it sound like you’re re-enacting Christian theological events, that may or may not be coincidence. When in doubt, put your trust in zoo animals.

Messing around with FOAF files. The thing with all these Friendster type things is that I’m too shy to invite other people (and I don’t like being volunteered for things without being asked- consider it a throwback to bad work experiences- so I don’t like to do it to other people). Has anyone else I know got one of these files? (I built it here) and would they mind being linked to?
Edit: I’ve pointed Plink at my FOAF.
Well, that was brief.
And it’s cold enough to settle, but I don’t expect there to be very much.
(Cross posted to Monitor Duty, where I seem to be the token ‘liberal’. I’d be interested in debating this with some of them, because none of the arguments against have any merits whatsoever as far as I can see.)
It’s always worth getting a Salon day pass to check out Keith Knight’s K Chronicles This week- the San Francisco gay marriage kerfuffle.
Personally, I think the King of Cambodia has the right idea.
(Two comments about gay weddings in one day? I have a cold, it must be putting me in touch with my feminine side. Plus, King Sihanouk is my new hero.)
Deputised Experts has been put on hold until webcomicsnation is up and running. It was supposed to be here already, but you know how software projects are. On the plus side, some of the proposed functions are incredibly cool.
Still no luck with spinneyhead.co.uk coming back online. Time for another e-mail to someone who has a better idea of what’s going on in the hope they can help me.

Meanwhile, his country’s government is proposing Khmer Rouge theme parks.
Tour guides will be selected from among former members of the genocidal regime who are not currently awaiting trial for crimes against humanity……”Most areas have been declared free of land mines,” secretary of tourism Thong Khon said.
A quick guide to postcard activism in the quest to save Angel.
Firefly was Buffy creator Joss Whedon’s take on the space opera. It was significantly different to the Trek/ Bab 5 axis of sci-fi, which was probably part of its problem. Whilst Buffy practically created its own sub genre, Firefly was entering a crowded field. It was cancelled after 12 episodes.
However, it looks like a film version will start shooting this May.
Pixies tickets? You have 60 seconds, from a standing start, to get your order in.
I should be doing coursework, but got distracted by Amazon statistics.
The most clicked through item is Another Education and Ruby Red, my own print-on-demand tome, which has generated one order. You can get it direct as an Acrobat file for pennies if you want to assess the literary merit before doling out too much cash.
Second is Bring It On by Gomez, an excellent album.
Third- Northern Soul Memories Vol. 1, which I haven’t listened to in ages. Must dig it out.
Fifth- Dead Ringer by Meatloaf
Best selling of all my referals is Dude, Where’s My Country?
In the period I’m looking at 41 items have been ordered and only 37 dispatched. Obviously I now have to print out both lists and find out where the discrepancy lies.
The Pegasus glider attack secured two important bridges on D-Day and held up German reinforcements. The squad that did the attack was nearly under-manned after several were arrested whilst out on the piss.
You may remember Accordion guy’s girl trouble from last year. Well, now he’s met someone far better suited (no, it’s not one of the Olsen twins, scroll down). The lady herself seems happy enough about the relationship being conducted in (the blogosphere version of) public.
Similar “Ain’t it sweet.” style comments were made about a particular Friend of Spinneyhead earlier today. No names named, but I’m sure you know who you are. And if you don’t you’re probably staring at the screen going “Ian has friends?”
Apparently, Ashley is my preffered Olsen twin. (She’s only seventeen. Must not have those thoughts!)
Or something like that. The Welsh are more purely Celtic, and therefore ‘British’, than the English, according to DNA research. The English are more likely to be descended from Dutch and Frisian invaders.
I thought Frisians were a breed of cows?
