    I had a dream…

    Well, I did the other night. It was quite warm during the night – I ended up sleeping on top of all the blankets and sheets for most of it – and I wasn’t sleeping well in general because Freddie, my cat, was being a bit of a pain in the neck. Somehow, I started dreaming that my mother had somehow ended up on Police 10 7, with a child on her shoulders, being interviewed by a guy whose face I can remember but do you think I can remember his name? Of course not! It was really bizarre in general because the aurora australisĀ or southern lights were featured too…

    It’s 2019. How long will it take me to stop saying it’s 2018?

    I started typing this around 7:30pm on New Year’s Day in New Zealand. I didn’t go out anywhere last night, mainly because I didn’t have any money and partly because TVNZ2 (or whatever they’re called these days) were showing “Dirty Dancing” so I elected to stay home and watch that with one of my flatmates. Last year, Three were showing “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” but because of where I was living at the time, I couldn’t watch it when it was showing so I elected to watch it by other means. I will admit that I was in bed when the New Year came around but I was still…

    18 screws are the death of me…

    My laptop has a quirk where every so often, the power button board moves so the thing won’t turn on. This initially happened when I was in Australia in late January/early February for the Foo Fighters concert. At the time, I was somewhat annoyed but got a mini screwdriver set to take out the 18 screws holding the keyboard down in order to get to the battery, because maybe removing that then trying to power up the laptop would work. Did it? No. Fast forward to September. I’d gotten myself a refurbished iMac and was about ready to actually get rid of the laptop when I thought I’d try to…

    Sometimes, I wish…

    …I could go back in time. Tell my 14-year-old self not to slack off in my second year of high school because I won a prize at prize giving the year before and because my stepfather died. Tell my high school self to have studied more and gotten better marks/grades so I could’ve gone to university straight from high school. Tell my 18-year-old self not to apply for the dole (unemployment benefit) as soon as you were eligible because you don’t want to get yourself into debt for the sake of studying. And also because you’d be on it for two years before you even got a job. Tell my…

    Fanlisting collective nearly operational!

    It’s taken me longer than what I thought but I’ve nearly got the fanlisting collective fully up and running! There are a few bugs that I need to sort out but I’ll deal with that after I’ve had a snooze. I’ve nearly pulled my hair out trying to sort out the various issues that had cropped up but for now, I’m done.

    If you can see this…

    This means that the domain has officially moved to a new host! I’m still in the process of transferring my fanlistings over (don’t go installing Enth when you’re tired like I did) but with a bit of luck, that should be completed today. Fingers crossed!
