2006 – My year in Review

And what an interesting year it’s been. These are a few things that I have been up to or that have changed this year, in no particular order: In July Andrew, Ian, Suki and I moved house. Ian bought his parents semi-detached house which technically is only around the corner from our old house, but […]

Gamercards

Matchbox360 has a new member of staff, DarkGashX, who has his own site for Gamercards and will be contributing to the new design which will go live very soon. He has many different ones available, including this one which is exclusive for XL staff at the moment: EDIT: Turns out his site is temporarily unavailable […]

MSN conversations and who shouldn’t talk to me….

This is something that has been annoying me for quite a while now, so bear with me if I get a bit carried away. I seem to have the whole world and it’s dog on my msn list which consists of real life friends, friends from Germany, workmates, my housemates, ex housemates, people I know […]

Merry Christmas from Family Guy!

I’ve been sent the link by Stew (SubDivid3r, it’s also his birthday today!). Cat

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Merry Christmas to you all! :D Cat

Early Christmas present? Or not….

My housemate received a warning of pending court proceedings for speeding today. Turns out he was going 35 mph in a 30mph zone. Speeding at 35mph? Seriously, what is this world coming to? ;) Cat

Christmas shopping

Went Christmas shopping with my friend Kizzi today and I hope everyone else has already done theirs. There is so much going on in town it is unbelievable. Every single shop had queues of around 10-15 people and everyone seemed to be in town today. We managed to get most of what we needed/wanted though. […]

Christmas story

I don’t know if anyone else has this as well, but there are some things which are so familiar that they just make you feel happy, I suppose. One of those things for me is the Christmas gospel according to Luke, chapter 2. It has to be the German translation from Martin Luther though which […]

Gun

As I’ve mentioned in a post a few days ago, I’ve now played Gun. Again. It is set in the Wild West and you’re playing Cole who has a very troubled history, finds out that his father isn’t who he thought it was and generally has to save the world. It is a sandbox type […]

Has anyone ever watched Lupin III?

Has anyone ever watched Lupin III? Or even heard about it? I have never seen the originals, I only watched a few specials that they were showing on TV in Germany a while back and absolutely loved them. Is it worth watching the whole of it? Does anyone know where I can get it from? […]

Lazy day

Had a bit of a lazy day today, infact I didn’t do anything apart from playing Gun all day which I have to say is a brilliant game. It’s the second time I’ve played it (I played the Xbox version last year) and I still like it. Phoebe is going crazy at the moment. She […]

Don’t judge too quickly!

Pretty self explanatory, dont judge anything too quickly! Cat

Joe Barbera is dead

Joe Barbera, one half of Hanna-Barbera that created classics, such as ‘Tom and Jerry‘ and ‘The Flintstones‘ and of course ‘Scooby-Doo‘, died yesterday. He will be missed. Cat

Number 13 it is!

I have somehow managed to reach number 13 in the fastest growing wordpress.com blogs, otherwise known as Blog of the day (BOTD). Read more about BOTD here. :D In addition I’ve also had more than 1000 views today. :D Cat

Not another one of these….

Right, I’ve been tagged again and here is another set of questions. Click the button if you want to read it. ;)

Christmas is definitely near now!

Anyone had a look at my gamercard? It’s got christmas lights now! I really am impressed how quick time flies by. Christmas day is in a week. And I am still not sure what present to get for my best friend. :( Why does it have to be so commercialised? Cat

Spambots want to get away from me!

Looks like I have more of an effect on people than I thought. Spam bots just want to get away from me! :D (Click the image to see it full screen) Cat

Real Life?

Does anyone remember the Dove advert in which the ‘normal’ woman gets transformed into a model? That shows a lot on how our perception of beauty is distorted and how we are willing to strive to be something that is not possible and was (partially) created in photoshop. This is the video: I’ve found a […]
