A while ago, I came up with a new idea for a website which I (obviously) thought would be quite and interesting experiment. Over the past month or so, I have been recruiting a few of my friends to get involved and now I can announce that the project is officially in the pipeline.
So what is this idea I hear you say, well the basic idea is a fictional story told from several different characters perspective written by different authors. I know this isn’t particularly groundbreaking, however where this idea differs it that everything will be written on a series of blogs.
Each blog will be a window into the private diary of one of the characters, and all the diaries will be aggregated together to create one big story! There will be global plots which run through all the diaries, however the individual authors will have the freedom to go wild with their own characters.
Hopefully I will get things going in the next month, so watch this space.
Many years ago I was in a band with some friends from Coventry. It wasn’t anything serious at all, but we definitely had a good laugh.
I was messing around with my guitar the other evening and remembered one of our old song. The song wasn’t particularly well received, probably due to the first verse having some lyrics which could be misinterpreted! The chorus was originally written to be a Christian song but as it is fairly generic, was incorperated into another song. Anyway, I really liked the chorus so I decided to test out GarageBand on my laptop and came up with a little recording.

Although things havent been much fun recently, someone at work showed me a website which made me laugh louder than I have in a long time! I can’t explain what it is but check it out: The Fail Blog.
Also, on the way home today I spotted a dog at a pedestrian crossing which started to cross the road. I stopped, the person driving the other way stopped and the dog crossed the road very slowly while yawning. We set back off as if nothing had happened! Very random.
I was extremely pleased with myself after creating the Chicken and Leek pie which you can see on this post.
I was surprised by how well the recipe actually turned out with such a relatively small amount of effort. Preparation of the ingredients we perhaps the most time consuming part of the recipe, even so that was probably due to my lack of skill with a knife rather then the number of ingredients.
I’m not sure how healthy the pie was, however I was happy to knowing exactly what went into it so at least I there were no flavourings, chemicals or battery eggs used.
If your feeling adventurous, I’d definitely recommend trying it out! You can find the recipe here.
