These were made by my old flatmate Kate, the three chicks have been
made up to look like other people in the house [namely Rick Graham,
Alex Feery and myself].
I am on the left with a beard playing piano. Rick is in the centre with emo hair and
a Guinness under his wing and on the far right we have Alex. And although you
can’t see it he has got flesh tunnels taped on under his ears.
Found this photo recently and it made me giggle. So it’s on the blog.
I may start doing my posts like this just so’s I get into the habit of writing on here.

The first post was placed on this site on the 2nd of
August 2008. So I’m a little late but I only realised
today. So yeah, a whole year. I’m probably as
surprised as you. Because I usually abandon stuff
like this a long time ago.
For the next few days [Saturday, Sunday, and Monday]
I’m going to be in Dublin in Ireland. Should be fun. So
I’ve placed a wordpress style wrap-up but for the entire
year. Using stats and the like. Enjoy
Here are the stats for the 2nd August 2008 to the 7th August 2009 stats:
- 2 blogs were created.
- 161 posts were published.
- 270 comments. Alot of this is due to yourownpersonalmonster [click the link].
- 7,780 pageviews on squarebrackets.wordpress.com.
- The most amount of views in a month occurred in May 2009 with 839 views. With July 2009 coming a close second with 834 views.
- In 2008 this blog received 2,830 views and so far in 2009 it has received 4,950 views.
- The average view per day in 2008 was 19.

- The most viewed page or post is the ‘[about me’ page which has received 324 views.
- And the biggest referrer to this blog is the WordPress Dashboard.
And there you go. A whole year of views and comments reduced
to numbers. That isn’t to say I haven’t appreciated all your
comments for I have recieced for I have. And I love the fact that
people actually reead all the random things that I have to say.
As you saw on that list of statistics I have created two blogs.
The other blog is realatively quite new with only one post on
it at the moment [although it has about ten drafts, all of
which will be made into posts]. It was made for the express
purpose of display my photography. the link is below:
Lets hope that I keep that one up [and this one] for another year.
Thanks, and keep reading!
I still don’t believe that I’ve had this and kept it active for

would like to say sorry for disappearing
just really couldn’t think of anything to
write. and also i was busy as you can
see by the blog before this one.
[it was awesome dude]
[oh and in response to your comment
cause it was a big one, lol]
good to hear that you’re kool
and just so’s you know all moods
pass over time [and i should know
i been in some terrible ones
and the 45 min hug was actually
extremely comfortable, lol, and this
is gonna sound random but I have
noticed more and more people using
square brackets, lol
As you may note, recently I wrote a blog
[see blog entitled: mini trips and
notepads] I wanted to see more places,
places I had yet to see.
Well I did it =]
I got a ticket on Monday night and on
Tuesday morning I was on a flight, yeah,
This flight took me 711.37 Miles [thats
1144.82 Kilometres] to Oslo a city in
Norway. It was awesome and the fact
it was all last minute made it all the
better. I went with my best friend
We came back Wednesday night and
actually managed to make friends
with an Australian man who was on a
tour of Europe and was heading to
All in all I’m happy that I did it
and also I took my along the first
35mm camera that I ever had. An
Olympus Trip 35. Its actually one
of the most fun cameras I have to
use. But in this blog I have only
included one digital shot that
I took with my IXUS 70 out of the
[funny thing was I didn’t actually
tell my mum where I was going
just left in the morning. When I
got back late on Wednesday, she
just laughed and said “Norway?”
and I smiled and said “Yep”]
[thats how cool my mum is]

Now, annoying, to contrast the
day that I had yesterday, I had
quite a crappy day. and the
annoying things are this;
1] It Started OK
2] I don’t know what changed
For some reason it turned from
an average day at work to one
of those days when you want to
listen to quasi-depressing music
at the loudest possible volume.
[which I did, and it was fun]
I have no reason to be down
today, at all, yet I am still in
a bit of a mood and can’t seem
to shake it.
There obviously were good points
about my day, like for instance,
working with Amy, Amanda, Tom
and to some extent David, although
at times he can seem more morose
Also I had to return a milkshake
today, which I can inform you is the
low point of my consumer life.
There was one reason I came up
with to explain my bad mood, but
it couldn’t be that, I’ve come too far
to be bothered by that crap.
Hopefully in a few minutes I’ll
blog awesome like usual, but give
me this space [and this time] to vent.
