Return of the can

Yes! He is back --->
Good stuff.
Well, I really can't be arsed with a long post today as my noggin is killing me. Hopefully the ibuprofene (and coffee) that I am taking as I type will help.
Not much happening here at the moment. Doing a bit of work (shock horror).
In the big city yesterday seeing the boss and going a bit of mind will boxing. I learnt the last form of one of the lineages called twelve red hammers. It is interesting and has a hell of a lot of horse in it. Bit like cat food.
After a quick search for martial arts quotes, I have discovered the worlds greatest martial artist - Morihei Ueshiba (http://www-cse.ucsd.edu/users/paloma/Aikido/artpeace.html).
Now, don't get me wrong, Aikido is ok. However, like all good Japanese martial arts, it is watered down chinese martial arts (Actually, I believe aikido is supposed to be derived from Bagua). Anyway, the greatest martial artist in the world. I am sure I know some people who would wipe the floor with him.
Back to serious matters and quotes...

"To hear is to forget, to see is to remember, to do is to understand."
- Chinese proverb
"It's not just self defense, it's about...self control, body discipline, and mind discipline...and breath techniques. It involves yoga. It involves meditation. It's an art, not a sport."
- Elvis Presley

Emergency quote!

I am so forgetful, so here is a quote. First though, I have to point out that my portrait has disappeared. I hope this is a temporary service problem and not the end of the site. Damn it.

Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.
Tupac Shakur

It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards.
Lewis Carroll

Too kind

Well, it is just before 3am and like any normal person, I am putting some new mp3s on to my sexy MuVo. Oh yes. Including some daft punk I might add. I am slightly worried that I am going to have to remove a few old tracks (such as the brilliant das boot), but we will cross that bridge when we come to it.
So, while my beloved computer is busy doing this for me, I decided to write a lovely little blog for you. Hence the title. And, yes I am.
In other matters, I have been practicing a bit of self hypnosis in order to try and improve my motivation. I have to ask though, if I am motivated to learn and try self hypnosis to cure myself of a motivational problem, maybe it isn't my motivation that is at fault? On a minor aside, if you fall asleep while hypnotised, are you still hypnotised when you wake up? This is something that I have been testing...
Today I spent over an hour hacking in to my router. Not much fun, especially when all your internet stops working ,you realise you have no back up and no way to undo what you actually did. Strangely this sort of thing happens to me quite a lot. I guess I am just the sort of person who likes to fiddle with something until I break it, then get a smug sort of satisfaction when I put it back together and see it working.
Deja vu? I am just having a very bad case. This may have something to do with the fact that daft punk is playing down my ears loud enough to melt my ear drums.
Anyway, I have just finished reading Angels and Demons. A good book, just don't read it if you are a scientist (ie a physicist or chemist - no Biology is not a real science). It will annoy you (unless you are a certain friend of mine...). DaVinci code is still good though bearing in mind my previous gripes. Blimey, I am a misery.
Well, my mp3 player has finished doing what needed to be done, so, in the words of the prophecy, it is time to go and de-hypnotics myself.
Until we meet again (damn deja vu).
