Found a cure

It's easy: 2 bottles of white wine.

Suggested listening

Advice from Smoochy

Smoochy was right. Today I am Hungry, Angry, Lonely and Tired.
Once I get home I will: Eat something, calm down, talk to Simon and maybe have a snooze.

I need a week off everything. Maybe I should learn how to stop time.


Well, if the week starts out this bad, at least it can only get better!

Here's a getting better haiku:

Sun nudges grey clouds,
Splits the sky into light/dark.
Greys are hurrying.

Haicw Ffôn Symudol

Rhestr galwadau
wedi colli, yn aros
yn y ffôn tawel.

Pop the glock

Hooray! My glockenspiel arrived today. We've all had a go in work, making pretty tinkly tunes. I can finally start on my version of I Saw Three Ships now. I might even take it away with my on the weekend - I'm going to Glastonbury with my Mam and Dad. I haven't been away with them or on holiday with them for more than 15 years, this weekend is so random! Looking forward to starting my Christmas shopping though - told you I was prepared this year.

Christmas EP 2008

I'm making another Christmas EP again this year and I'm so ahead of schedule! Out of the six songs I'm planning on doing, I've completed three of them and nearly finished the fourth.

The provisional tracklisting is:

1. God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen (Traditional)
2. Mi Welais Tair Llong (Traditional - translated by AC Williams) (English: I Saw Three Ships)
3. Plastic Christmas Wonderland (Bert Kaempfert)
4. Dear Santa (AC Williams)
5. Plastic Winter (Gustav Holst)
6. Auld Lang Syne (Traditional)

Working title is 'Nadolig/Plastig' (which means 'Plastic/Christmas'). Fun fact: I play ukulele on one track.

Edited 15/09/08: Not sure if I'm going to use God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen now. The way I had done it was too similar to the 'plastic' songs. Maybe I will just make it more plastic and be done with it!

I ♥ Spore

OMG I totally love this game. I have spent about 5 hours designing a cute dinosaur monster. I've forgotten to eat and everything. Hollol anhygoel. Dwi'n dwli ar y gêm yma.

Friday, 12 September 2008


I'm very excited, Spore arrived yesterday. I'm too hungover to play it tonight (and I have loads to do for work), so tomorrow I forsee I will be spending the entire day glued to my computer screen... whoop!

Podcast 1.0

How to Make an Egg

Just a test, but I'm quite pleased with the quality of the recording.

Thursday, 4 September 2008


I’m watching you asleep.
Waiting for you to turn over and breathe,
arms over your perfect head.
You’re sleeping unashamedly,
innocently and with abandon.
Your legs are draped over me
and your hand has now found mine,
is gripping me tightly -
I’m glad you trust me to guard your sleep.
My stomach hurts with the desire
to ensure you’re safe and content.
