Well, things have been a bit slow around here, but I can assure you that is no reflection of the pace of my life right now. So much stuff is happening it's really fairly hard to keep up.
We're just over a month out from the wedding and things are all go. The invitations have gone out and we're getting RSVP's left, right and centre. There is still plenty of stuff (but just small stuff) that needs organising. Time sure is ticking by quickly.
I've been hard at work on the website withoutpockets.com and it is slowly but surely getting closer to being ready for launch. For now, I've put up a pre-launch site, which Tony has already been nice enough to plug over at Primordial Ooze1. And as at today has generated a full 25% of the visitors to withoutpockets.com.
Laura's flat out at school at the moment. She is putting on a musical this week and is out at rehearsal tonight. Apparently she told the kids at school today that I'd be there to see it on Friday and they were so excited that they announced it to a bunch of other classes. Apparently they ask about me all the time. They all seem to really like Laura, and I'm not surprised (I do too), she'd be a awesome teacher.
TV Boycott and an Attempt at Early Rising
Prompted by an experiment conducted by Steve Pavlina I'm in the middle of a 30 day TV boycott, just to see how it goes. I don't plan to never watch TV again, but it's nice to be avoiding Australian Idol.
As well as avoiding TV, I'm trying to establish a habit. Early rising just seems so much better to me, however I find it really hard to do, so I thought I'd use the same 30 days to turn rising at 6am into a habit. Jiselle told me the other day that habits are established after 21 days, so I should be sweet.
I've only mentioned them in the footnotes so far, but I'm listening to them right now and I love that band so much that I thought they deserved a bigger mention. Go check out the Eels J Files. You might notice the most played albums over to the side which are conveniently recorded and supplied by Last.FM. I wouldn't be surprised if an Eels album features at the top of that list soon. To be honest, I'm not sure why the aren't there now.
- On a side note, Tony seems to be becoming fairly prolific over there. [↩]
- I'm pretty bored with my current collection, got any suggestions? [↩]
- Oh, except the Eels. OMG I love that band!! I don't know how I managed it, but I somehow neglected to post anything about seeing them live recently. I hope to have that horrible oversight corrected soon. [↩]
