    Yes, you should be able to make wizard-like gestures at it and see a very tiny internet. They say this is going to replace your desktop soon, but don't worry - you will probably get used to the tiny screen. It's mainly just for Facebook anyway; you don't really need the rest of the internet. :p

    I have one of those! It's really amazing. It has this long string like thing with a square end that fits into this little square device on my wall. It makes this ingenious ringing sound instead of playing music... It happened today twice already.

    Neat! My best friend has a phone from an old Belgian telephone booth. A big black monster with a dial so heavy you'd strain your wrist. You had to put Belgian francs in it, but because we live in Holland (and because Belgian Francs are outdated... :p), he tweaked the thing. You get a heart attack when someone calls and his cats loose all bodily fluids as well, so he doesn't use it anymore. It's a cool gadget though.

    ION: I was wearing an "I ♥ SU" shirt today that I once got from my Surinam now ex-GF. It's green with a yellow heart and red characters. The colours of the Surinam flag. And because I mentioned Surinam 3 times already now, I guess you have an idea of what SU stands for. Nonetheless, lots of people ask me if it means Soviet Union. Except for a nice chick from Curacao. Yup.

    I've been celebrating someone's birthday long enough now and I guess I need some sleep. As well as aspirins and a lot of water. Nighty Night, folks!

    It's after midnight and I'm wide awake at home after a nice evening out. I drank a Bristish Bulldog which was very nice and another one with caffeine and something that tasted good and a shot of tequilla and a Corona. Then I came home and smoked some very nice birthday weed (sorry Tal I know I shouldn't say that but its my birthday and so I'm hoping I get away with it):p And anyway the point of this story is that if anyone wants to make fun of the fact that I posted this very buzzed then you are welcome to as long as you take it as entertainment and don't get offeded :p. Happy birthday to meeee :p hehehe sorry . I shall exit now :p

    I have to say that I came dangerously close to posting a blog entry. But I saved it in draft instead. At least I have the sense to do that because I vowed I'd never post another blog entry under the influence of anything because that was not really professional. However this is the Random Babbling thread so I figure it's appropriate enough in the fact that my thoughts are a little random atm.

    Sorry I don't know why that double posted. It's probably my fault though :p So sorry to make you read things twice.

    a shame Dice.

    I have to confess that this forum is one of the few social media that I use. I have never used facebook or twitter. (or its peers)

    First day in the garden. Still a bit nippy, but dry. Removed a few early weeds, dug out a small pear three that gave awful tasting fruit.

    For some reason a wimbledon match is on. A young Billy jean King against someone else.
    Sure like to replace the other one with Serena Williams.

    Thanks Tal :)

    @Merlanni - I know it is a shame. Actually I am a little embarrassed about my excessive writing last night. :o Thankfully I did not get too adventurous with my posting. Sense enough to stay away from facebook :p.

    No shame for much writing. We were hoping for something naughty.

    I'm a straight whiskey guy I guess, but I don't really drink much.

    Ok, next time I find myself in such shape I'll try to be naughtier :p

    @ Gaear - I like Vodka myself. I think for now a nice cup of tea will do though.

    Oh yep! The 2 weeks that contain the most birthdays (in my world) are the first week of March and the last week of October, especially my own birthday. Or is it Death Rabbit's? Or my sister in law's or one of the many others?

    I'm also almost out of Whiskey. All the bottles of Islay whiskeys (Lagavulin, Ardbeg, Bowmore, Bruichladdich, Smokehead, Laphroaig) are empty and the Tallisker near its bottom. Gaear... You got some left?

    Edit: Oh! Never mind... I found a bottle of some cask strength.

    I've just recently developed a taste for whiskey. The only problem is that it goes down just a little too easily and before I realise how much I've had I'm completely plastered...
