not sure I should be as happy as I am about this but— yay, I fit into my skinny jeans again!
finally updated my profile pic to something identifiable; must apply it to my internets; need a matching colour scheme for petermhoward.com
advertising a roundtable full of interesting ppl but blocking out ur audience so ur sponsor could get an exclusive? not very social, #smcsyd
drastically culled my feed subscription list over the weekend — feels so much better not logging in to thousands of unread items!
spider bit me; instead of superpowers, just made my skin red — tho does look suspiciously vampiric, on the neck; I'll take what I can get
"I think her bad guys are badder than my bad guys" — love dollhouse — annoying that it's finally hitting its stride now it's been cancelled
in live with should have read in love with; in live is something I'm working on, but not quite there yet
I'm still in live with new york, but nothing beats a drink at the water's edge in sydney's circular quay
went for a run for the first time in weeks; legs a little worn out, but thanks to the lunarglides, my feet feel great!
disappointed, qantas! after clearing security we find there's no bar in the CBR gate lounge; exited for a drink; will head back in fortified
we're supposed to be blaming the libs today, but greens could've got ETS thru; r they playing for a dd and hoping ppl forget and vote green?
off to canberra; working at parliament house a couple days, and hoping today's circus doesn't slow us down too much
coen bros' A Serious Man is really good — a dark humour, clever storytelling/structure, powerful acting that manages to stay pretty subtle
RT @wheelyweb: RT @webblastsyd: Tickets for WebBlast Xmas '09 (10 Dec, Pumphouse) go on 'sale' 9am Monday morning - http://webblast.com.au/
just bought my ticket RT @SMCSYD: Join us for the SMCSYD Christmas party on Dec 7 http://smcsyd7.eventbrite.com/ proceeds to charity
hoping all the dirty moustaches I see walking round the city will be cut off next tuesday — movember's just a big practical joke, right?
finally got my hands on tegan & sara's _sainthood_ — I loved it performed live and I'm enjoying the album so far
developing a new habit: peaceful after-work time at a bar with a glass of wine and a good book; very nice
having been away about a month I've fallen behind on my comics; _only_ ones I'm interested in picking up again are Secret Six and Batwoman
#optus doing same to me now RT @JustinMclean: How annoying. Telstra is redirecting to their own search page on bad DNS lookup #telstra #fail
"On Work" — a new bit about defining oneself through one's work — http://wintermute.com.au/bits/2009-11/on-work/
In which one defines oneself through one's work […]
heading out west — slightly crazy in this weather; hoping I can hop from air-con'd train to air-con'd shopping centre before it gets too hot
listening to jay-z's latest album; helping that _empire state of mind_ was my soundtrack to NYC — "these streets will make u feel brand new"
RT @ellyhart Yet again, scientists prove alcohol is good for you http://bit.ly/YTqFP #pseudoscience
finding it very hard to focus when my mind is still somewhere over the pacific — the soul travels much slower than the body
this change at the day's end is the part I love about sydney's summer weather; and the pale sunset in the storm's aftermath is beautiful
just realised I spent, for 3 weeks in the usa, about half what I spent for a year in france; I now feel faint, and the jet lag isn't helping
just discovered commbank put the cost of overseas cash withdrawals and credit payments way up (to 3% from a flat fee and 1.5% respectively)!
colourful plastic money feels strangely cute/unreal after handling the us's weird paper money (tho it was vice versa when I first got there)
got home to a letter summons-ing me to jury duty - tomorrow!! and they knew (from last excuse), I'd only be back today; sneaky
in boston; the best word to describe this place is "cute"; found a delightful jazz lounge with live music every night
no wifi at the hotel so checking in from a cafe; washington DC is gorgeous — lots of opportunity for beautiful photos
I've one more day in nyc and I've seen everything I wanted to see and spent enough money shopping — what should I do now?
kinda related, I'm developing a sneaker obsession; bought new nike runners (lunarglides — nice) and various (4 so far) pairs of other sneaks
thanks to hotel gym and crazy nyc streets, discovered treadmill running; still getting used to it, but sure beats not running cos of weather
