Time appears to be catching up with me already. Today, I gave a talk to some final-year-sixthformers about the Cambridge interview process. They’ll be being interviewed in mid-December. It doesn’t seem so long ago (even if it was four years ago) that I was interviewed by my future Director of Studies. I can still remember it very clearly, and passed on any advice that I could.

Tomorrow, I’m off for a weekend to Cambridge, because one of my best friends from home is having a shindig because he’s engaged.

Engaged.

Not taking calls. . Suddenly, rather than the horror that is University seeming to be coming to a crashing end, all around me, everything seems to be about to explode into life. Which is all very good indeed. The chance to catch up with old friends and the like is also an added bonus, which I shall not be passing up.

Best. Flash. Game. Ever. Play the tutorial, then experiment. It is brilliant.

Curiosity: Orbyn’s new project, Belly, is something along the lines of what Omnivore was originally going to be. Mmn. Food. Love it.

So.

19 November 2003

I’ve been busy, basically. Applying for jobs, waiting to hear about said jobs, doing some covering work in the meantime to fill my coffers; that sort of thing. And it’s all quite tiring, getting back into the swing of half seven starts again, but I’ve got something approaching regular income now, and that leads to trips to Cambridge and Glasgow, and to buying an Xbox (and thus spending many a minute snowboarding and shooting Covenant scum), as well as being immersed in The Corrections, and going back to some studio work and…

it’s not quite all go, but there’s just been enough happening to stop me being able to blog, mainly because I don’t feel right blogging from work in the slightest, and my headspace has needed clearing. So this has been on pause. A new Omnivore from Luke went up yesterday, and very fine it is to.

I’ll hopefully find stuff to write about, or time to write it, soon. As it is, infovore sits here, begging for content, and I want to give it content… but I just can’t. I’m a bad father, really.

I’ll be back soon. I promise. I haven’t disappeared. I’ve just been a bit busy with work and stuff – yes, work. I’m still here, there’ll still be linkish goodness and maybe some diatribes as well, when I get around to it. Probably tomorrorw.

Slippage

06 November 2003

Sometimes, things just slip my mind. I’ve been awfully busy of late, though not in any serious way, just enough to make me stressful and fretty, but not enough to seriously consume my time.

So I haven’t been weblogging, or reading, or making music, or doing fun things. Job applications and other whatnot have been taking precedence in my head, and so the weblog is the first thing to go. I’m off to my alma mater for the weekend, to see old friends and celebrate things. I shall soon be able to catch up and write again. And do not fear; there will be a new Omnivore on Monday, this time from the marvellous MacDara.

Mo Morgan is publishing again, as he promised oh-so-long-ago. No, Hell hasn’t frozen over. Yes, he’s being pretty interesting, as usual. And he’s got a great tagline.
