Drbexl Searches The 'Net (2008-2009)

Purpose of this blog, first created November 2008:

  • Familiarisation with what is ‘now’ on the ‘net
  • Experimentation with some of the new widgets/applications
  • Listings of useful websites, themed depending on my focus for that day/hour, etc. (I have a wide range of interests and like to experiment.

Built using Google Blogger. Still experimenting with new widgets, as I combine using this software with Google Blogger.

  • The blog got particularly heavy use during J John’s Just 10 series in the summer of 2009.

Woo hoo!

I used those precise words when I sent an email to my Mum the other day. My plan on coming back to Winchester was to get enough work to see me through to June… job done, but although I’d had lots of conversations, I didn’t have anything concrete for my next stage – enough work to see me through until October. I was then offered 2 pieces of work which, if I’m careful, will at least keep me that long, and there’s other conversations in the pipeline!

I think that deserves a big WOO-HOO of celebration!

I dress to impress in RED, RED, RED

Well, if it’s an interview, clearly it’s going to be a nice pinstripe suit, with lots of RED, nice powerful and confident read… all nicely cleaned and pressed. Always looking for the ideal pair of shoes to go with… bit of a heel for confidence, but not so high that you end up walking like you have blisters all over your feet (which is of course quite possible!).

If I’m going out for the night, quite possibly something similar – maybe less pinstripes, but a nice bright red top, or sometimes purple, or bright green (I don’t really DO pastels)… anything to brighten up the evening… similar dilemma in the shoes – particularly if there’s not a lot of money in the kitty for taxis!

I could eat nothing but pizza for a year

Italian: pasta, pizza, gelato all with in many different (and delicious) flavourings… what more could you want! Well, maybe to find the real cuisine rather than whatever I could afford for 2-3 Euro last summer: http://www.travelblog.org/Europe/Italy/Veneto/Venice/blog-330501.html
