Run… and a move to Cambridge

Friday, August 13th, 2010

I suppose things have been a little quiet recently; but I can blame that entirely on having to commute 2 hours a day to London for work… Yes, I’ve (temporarily) moved to Cambridge.

In other news, I went for a short run yesterday morning, only about 2 miles, but here’s the route:

2 mile run - 12th August 2010 in Cambridge

Ever been glad that you moved?

“Stranger” stabbing on Dalston Kingsland Road

That was about a minute from where I used to live just over a year and a half ago :/

Glass :(

So, this morning I got out of bed and trod on some broken glass :(

The offending item, once removed from my foot, is photographed below:

When removed from my foot, blood practically poured out of the hole, leaving a mini-puddle on the floor.

It took quick wits, otherwise known as putting hand over hole, to stop the bleeding.

Note the red patches on the top edge of the glass. This is real blood from my foot!

Time Lapse Video

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

Ever since I moved into my new flat, a server has been taking a picture out of my back window every 60 seconds.

FlatView was released shortly after I moved in, offering pseudo-realtime access to the data.

Every picture taken has been saved, and converted into a video!

/files/time-lapse-60days.avi (208MB)

This contains the last 60 days of data, as this is roughly how long I have been living at my new flat.

I have found the sunrise, sunset and night time to be the most interesting times.

FlatView is launched

Sunday, September 2nd, 2007

Ok, for ages I’ve been planning on doing something like this.

I now have a webcam setup watching out of one of my flat windows. Every minute, it takes a picture.

I will eventually be converting these images into daily “Videos” of what is happening outside, but for the moment, the “Current” image is available at FlatView.

Will…

The true way to introduce someone toone of your female flatmates…

Me: “Will, this is Chrissy

Chrissy: “Hi

Me: “Chrissy, this is Will. Although he’s never met you, he really fancies you

Will: **evil glare**

I blame Hamlesh for suggesting this while we were in the pub earlier!

Unfortunately, I don’t think he will ever forgive me for this… Maybe he really does fancy Chrissy?

Bloody Mistake

Friday, December 1st, 2006

So, last night I was jointing a rabbit.

This basically involves cutting through the flesh and bones of the rabbit (spine etc) and is fairly hard work.

Once I had finished jointing it, I left it out on the surface while I ate some chinese.

Unfortunatly, one of my flatmates came back, went into the kitchen, and saw the slabs of meat, and lots of blood.

First Question:

Please tell me that’s not blood.

Me:

It’s not blood

Her:

You’re lieing, arn’t you?

Me:

Yes.

Oops :-p
