In need of a redesign since 2011.

I've had a wonderful week. DanX's birthday celebrations were a resounding success, because I got to listen to people playing guitar and harmonica and singing. You have no idea how much I enjoy that. It was making me super nostalgic, and I don't think I shut up about Open Mic Nights for ages!

I've been making a playlist of songs from the OMN back home in Cowes; if anyone's interested and has Spotify, the links below will take you to it.
(I'm never sure which one you need.)

I've been having a lot of fun with my beloved wacom tablet! Here, check out my artitude:

BreezebeatsI traced it from a pic someone sent me, and I'm pretty pleased with the result!

Well. It's raining, and i feel terrible that I've essentially done nothing for the past two days, so I'm going to shut down the laptop and... do... something. Maybe wander around my room in ever-decreasing circles.

Interesting thing of the day: A two for one today. Firstly, I Hate Jake: a grown man reads out a childhood diary entry. I've kept a diary for a long time, maybe I'll do this some day.

Secondly, Wonderwall... as composed by Microsoft Singstar.

This youtube account has loads of Singstar-butchered classics, well worth checking out to remind yourself what actual musical talent sounds like (i.e. not like this).


  1. Just got a spotify account - so I'll try it.
    (If I can get it working on Linux that is! - which might be non-trivial)

  2. Dickins:

    "On what platforms can I use Spotify?
    Mac OS X 10.4 or later and Windows XP or later. You can also run Spotify in Wine on Linux."

    From the Spotify FAQ - so it looks like they tried to make it easy to get running cross-platform, so good luck!

  3. Aw... poor kid... and all the people were laughing at him :(

  4. It's ok Katie, using it as comedy takes the power out. It's a way of seizing control over what happened to you. I could see myself doing the same thing!

  5. Hey Anna,

    Your blogs are wonderful.Kudos.Keep up the good work.



Do you have relevant / irrelevant things to say? I thought so. Comment!
