Happy Nikolaus 2008!

This is pretty much the perfect time to get a blog post in as I can’t just ignore my tradition of the last years by not posting something today. Last year’s post and the post from 2006 are still on the internet, the others long since deleted with my previous attempts to blog. I’m finding […]

Why take Christmas decorations down?

Around Christmas time, or mostly the months before already, many towns attempt to make their town more Christmas looking and trying to pass along the Christmas spirit to spend more money. Ever wondered what happens to those decorations the rest of the year? Seen in Reading, UK in April..

Merry Christmas

It’s that time of year, Christmas is here and I couldn’t resist following Sha and Ish by posting a animal picture. But mine obviously had to be a cat! Merry Christmas everyone! Big thanks to everyone that stops by and reads my blog, especially to all you lurkers that never leave a comment! And a […]


Spent quite some time reading Wikipedia this weekend. As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before [and I can’t even find the post on my own blog!], Wikipedia is very addictive. Whilst I’ve edited some small things, I mainly just use it for reference. However, it’s just so easy getting lost on there. Something Root mentions on […]

Thoughts of the day

I’ve still not watched Jurrassic Park. I have sooo much to do before Christmas.. I have to ask someone to look after house/cats for a couple days, but I’m not sure I trust that person, yet I don’t have an alternative.. I want to visit Las Vegas. “Never use a pointy stick to check if […]

2. Advent

Time simply flies. Today’s the 2. Advent, well, by now it’s almost over. The next few weeks I will be very busy with visiting my grandparents in Germany for a couple days, going to see the musical Avenue Q, doing Christmas shopping, finishing writing postcards, decorating the house, buying all the food for Christmas, getting […]

Happy Nikolaus 07!

What’s up today?

Believe it or not, today’s the day of the ninja. Ah, I hear you ask, how do I become a ninja? Do not fear, the good ol raincoaster blog shows you how to. I’ve just come back from living an internetless life for just over 24 hours at a time which could’ve not been picked […]

1. Advent

Is it just me or has this year gone by even quicker than the last one? It feels the year’s only just started.. Regardless, it’s Sunday, the 2nd of December 2007, it’s only three more Sundays until Christmas which means that today is… The first Advent! I explained it last year, so head back to […]

1. 12. 2007

And the official run for Christmas has once again begun [as I’ve been ill I haven’t left the house, so I’ve not seen the chaos in town], today is the day people worldwide open their advent calenders. But where does the tradition come from? The origins of the Advent calendar come from German Lutherans who, […]

The October ’07 digest.

October’s been a month in which I didn’t blog much again, but there were a few changes to the blog and my live. This is incase you missed any of it. I’ve moved, watched Heroes [amongst other stuff] and played too much Halo 3. This blog also has a new domain – Blame Halo […]

I’m going to be busy in the next few months…

… playing many games. Yep, it’s that time of year again, the Christmas rush is under way and many promising games are coming out. Sadly there are also way too many games I am looking forward to play, not to mention all the games that I am still playing, including Project Gotham Racing 4 and […]

So it’s been a while

I will personally prosecute everyone that says moving house is easy. It really is not. Couple that with my mobile breaking and me being ill and I can safely say it’s been a ‘fun’ time. Technically I’m still ill, I’ll need a few more days to get my energy back, but at least most of […]
