3 Realizations

Aside

Today I realized three things:

1. That sunny weather makes me very happy.

🙂

2. That I’m oddly curious as to why dogs find sticking their heads out of the windows of moving cars so enjoyable.

NYYYYYUUUUUMMMM!!!

3. And that I put my earphones in the wash by accident.

Balls. -_-

Thursday was fun. 😛

Kevin’s Favorite Boxers

Sometimes when you really like a pair of boxers, you just have to wear them on your head.

Caught in the act.

I am not ashamed…

A lot of people were curious about the intriguing pair of purple boxers that I wore while bag-packing last weekend. So–ever eager to please my loyal fans–I have created this special edition, once in a lifetime post so that you can finally witness them in all of their 3 megapixel glory. Continue reading

A Couple of Days Off for Christmas

Aside

It’s basically Christmas! Which means that Kevin will be busy busy busy hanging out with his rather large extended family 😀 As such, I probably won’t be posting anything much over the next few days. (Unless I get insomnia. Which has been known to happen. Especially on Christmas Eve! ;)). I’ve put up a couple of long posts – one Some Thoughts article, and one long fantasy short story – so you can read those if you have a few spare moments over the next few days and need a “Kevin fix”.

(I hear it’s a quickly developing medical condition.)

Anyway, that’s me (probably) done for Christmas. Though I do have one post timed to come up tomorrow at 10. It’s my first scheduled post on WordPress.com. /tear. It’s short and sweet… Like the lifespan of a typical selection box in my house 😛 I thought it would be appropriate.

OK that’s enough talking! Happy Christmas! – Kevin out!

Christmas Shopping is Done!

Aside

TRIUMPH!!!

Those of you who know me will probably be aware that I usually leave everything to the last possible moment. That includes Christmas shopping. What else is Christmas Eve for anyway? 😛

This year, however, I’ve become a new man. It’s three days to Christmas and all my shopping is done! Huge success! I even bought really good presents this year. I’d saved up a bit of money and figured that I might as well spend it all on presents. I’ve gotten used to being totally broke this year. And being slightly in debt. Why should Christmas be any different?! I have teaching practice in January anyway, which roughly translates to massive savings due to lack of social life. Win/win!

So this is my message to you: if you haven’t got all your Christmas shopping done, go out and do it! NOW! You have no excuse.

Actually, I still have to get one of my granddads a present. Making this whole post a lie. GODDANGIT!! I’m a terrible person.

Stages of Sickness

1. Suspicions that you are getting sick.

You feel a bit off. Maybe you’re just having a bad day? Maybe Blade Runner is just wrecking your head? Whatever the reason, you don’t feel too good. Hopefully it’s just a temporary thing.

2. Lying in bed with a fever – certainty that you’re sick.

There’s no denying it now. You’ve been lying in bed feeling awful for the last 3 hours. In fact, you feel so bad that you can’t even get yourself out of bed to take some medicine. If that’s not a sign that you’re sick, nothing is.

3. Shouting at someone to get paracetemol.

You’re not moving anywhere any time soon. The solution? Shout at someone who is operating normally to come and save you from you duvet smothered misery. Continue reading

Backgrounds

Aside

Today I discovered that you can change the background of your WordPress blog. I’d seen the heading before in the appearance menu – in fact, I’m fairly sure I even went into it! – but it just never seemed to register with me what that meant. While browsing other blogs today I stumbled across someone who was using the same theme as me, and that person was using a really nice textured background. My blog looked dull in comparison. Ever the perfectionist, I have now embarked upon a quest to find a suitable and stylish background for my blog!

My experiments thus far have pointed me in a “wood” direction. I’m still not 100% happy with the options I’ve tried so far, so I will probably be spending the rest of the night switching in different ones on trial runs 😛 Matching the background with the header photo is proving almost impossible! (I think I will change the header). At the very least though they add an extra splash of color and texture to the blog, and that has to be a good thing! Let me know if you have suggestions. Be creative so I don’t have to 😉 My internet is running really slowly today so it’s taking forever to load the damn Google images… It will be worth it though. It will be worth it.

Kevin out!
