I wish I was a punk rocker.

Birthday

This past week and a half saw the arrival of my 25th birthday - sigh! I'm not quite sure I like the speed at which time is progressing. Oh well... more importantly I went home to Mors to visit my parents and celebrate my birthday with my family, which was pretty neat, actually, but not at all good for my resolve to lose weight. In fact, I think I even gained weight. Not good - Stefan is well in the lead at the moment, so it's time for me to buckle up and lay off the fatty foods. The next couple of days it's leek and onion soup for me.

On another note, I'm considering dumping my newsreader Forté Agent that I've been using seemingly forever for 40tude Dialog - which has finally reached the stage where it is totally Unicode compatible on my system. Unicode, in case you're wondering, is the immensely promising new technology that allows all of the world's different writing systems to be contained in one codepage and one font, thus enabling the storage of any combination of signs and letters from any of the world's writing system in one simple plain text file - or even inclusion in a blog (μπλόγ / בְּלוֹג / блог / ब्लोग्) - wee :)

Prelude

Hi there

I've noticed how all the cool people have a weblog and suddenly it occurred to me that I had none. This, of course, had to be a mistake committed somewhere, but instead of complaining I thought I'd do something about it myself, so here you go.

I'll be using this spot to post a comment or two about what ails me every now and again, and also I plan to use it to keep track of my on-going diet. I've decided that I want to try this "fit" thing they all talk about, so from time to time I'll be posting my progress here.

The deal is this: Last Wednesday (the 12th of August) I made a bet with a friend, the terms of which were that the one to first drop 20% of his body weight could pick a restaurant and a dinner of his choice and the loser would have to pay. So now we're at it, and at the moment he's in the lead, but that shan't last long, I tells you.
