Forgive the Northeast colloquialisms, but it was a most interesting weekend. Spent two days with some Geordies (people from Newcastle), Maccams (people from Sunderland) and - erm, people from Cambridge (don’t know what they’re called) in the grounds of Downing College. Considering the bitterly fierce rivalry between the Maccams and Geordies, everyone got on incredibly well.

It’s my birthday. I’m thirty-one years old today. It’s a lovely age to be. Typically, I have been celebrating since last Saturday. This is a purely unselfish method of ensuring I get to see all of my friends over the week.

See you in two weeks!

5th August 2004

Woo-hoo! Shut the Powerbook, roll out the “Out of office” auto-reply, dig out the bucket and spade. I’m having a well-earned rest for the next two weeks, so you can expect nothing new from me until the 23rd August. Yep, even the blog is getting rested. Well, maybe I’ll post the odd thing here and there…

Portrait of the (former) artist

17th July 2004

I’ve added six new Photo Sets to the site, including a gallery of my artwork, showing paintings, drawings, installations and sculpture from 1996 to 2002. I originally trained as an artist, and after graduating with a Fine Art degree in 1996 I had a number of well-received exhibitions in the UK and Iceland.

In Southend, United

11th May 2004

Posted via CollyPhone: Images from the University-gang reunion in glamorous Southend-on-Sea recently. Probably a bit ropey seeing as I’m sending them from my mobile, but it’s not the future yet.
