new personal site 
21/4/07, 2:44 am
after talk of converting my professional page ( ) into a new personal page to replace i've started work on a fresh new-from-scratch version of You can see my progress here.

Going for pure html, and keeping it as ultra-simple as possible. Will be making it database driven and writing myself a backend. Might put in a few random bits and bobs, like being able to choose from different designs with the same content. We'll see.

Haiku from a Japanese garden in Nantes

A joint project between my brother an me as we ate our picnic in the Japenese garden in Nantes at the weekend:

Some cherry blossom
Some lands in my waiting cup
Cherry blossom cup

Hmm, puts me in the mood for a beef haiku.

As i write this, i should be near Calais. I should be sat in a nice comfy chair, reading my book with a gin in my hand. I should be sat on the eurostar.
I am, however, sat in my friends flat in Paris. Turns out that if you get on the wrong metro line by accident, it takes a really long time to get where you are meant to be going. Turns out that getting to the station 3 minutes before your eurostar train leaves isn't early enough.

If this wasn't bad enough, on my way to Paris I managed to leave my passport in Cambridge. I didn't remember until I had passed through security and was stood in front of the passport control. Ended up getting into Paris roughly 5 hours late.

The one good thing in this plethora of poor organisation is eurostar - they have changed my ticket in both directions for no extra charge. I even managed to get to cambridge and back to london for free, using my old ticket. I love being jammy.

Serioustly though, only me :oP

Nice Site

Seeing as my blog is fairly poor in terms of content, why not entertain yourself by reading this blog instead.

A rather spangly site in terms of design too, which is always nice.
