I’m actually updating my website

I’m updating my site! It’s been sooooo long since I’ve updated my site, I’ve almost forgotten how. If you find anything on the site that’s weird, wrong, or inadvertently funny, would you mind contacting me to let me know? I think the contact page still works. In the meantime, I’m …

Testing

Today is Writing Day at chateau deborahb. Many days are writing days, but this is the official writing day, as it is a day I have bought from my f/t employment specifically to be alone & write. It is, then, my favourite day of the week. Today I am playing …

Chocolate Friday

Today I had a chocolate bar. Which is not of interest in & of itself, except with relation to the fact that I rarely eat chocolate bars & don’t even remember the last time I ate a chocolate bar or what that chocolate bar might’ve been. But today I was …

Big

Hahaha, this Skribit business is already paying off, with a new suggestion received at other.blog today (thanks, Liz!). So: up next (soon-ish) will be Albert Camus. But first: Australia is BIG, people! See, I told you. Follow @deborah_b

lj betrays me

I’ve fallen victim to the no-emails-on-comments thing on livejournal. So if you’ve commented against my posts/comments & I haven’t responded, it’s because I didn’t get the memo. Sorry ’bout that. Follow @deborah_b

Sworling, swirling and whorling

Why isn’t there more use of the word ‘sworl’? (Yes, these are the questions that obsess writers.) I thought it was reasonably common, but several searches of the online dictionaries reveal two things: a) it’s not reasonably common, & b) the only online Australian dictionary I could find charges a …

And not a moment too soon

I have updated my website! A cobbler’s children are always the last to have new shoes, & seeing as I used to make websites, naturally I had a bulk of day-job distaste for the idea of re-designing my own site. But once I installed the WordPress blog, I realised a …

So much love to give

Check out bestweekever‘s Wednesday Morning Quick Hits over here. Nudity and hot sauce. Two things that should never be combined. I am tired. It took me forever to write ‘Wednesday’ just then & I’m still not sure I got it right. (Also, it is now officially Thursday, & for reasons …

I die, therefore I am?

Just because gillpolack got me thinking about life & death, here’s one of my favourite quotes: Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die. — Gilbert Keith Chesterton Follow @deborah_b

Linkity-split

chork — v. (chork) — to make the sound shoes make with water in them. (Thanks, capnoblivious.) And BTW, I LOVE this weather. I hadn’t even noticed the absence of rain in Sydney until the news reports started blah blah blahing about water restrictions, but now that classic Sydney rain …

Tag-arama a-go-go

I just want to try out this tags thingy so I am going to write this post and tag it, & I will tag it ‘useless’. I suspect many of my posts will be tagged ‘useless’. Follow @deborah_b

Paris in the Springtime

Paris Hilton is set to marry her boyfriend, Paris Latsis. It’s like a double latte, only with Parises. Ohmygod, that’s so beautiful. If I met a man with my name I would totally marry him. Except, wait, that would be really, like, weird. You know how hard it was to …

Naturally, there’s a lot to catch up on

Starting with: http://showdown.contagiousmedia.org/ In an era where the proliferation of information has been accelerated through technological advancement and the Internet, how do people decide what information they will share with others? Contagious Media explores this question in an exhibition of recent projects developed specifically to quickly spread socio-political messages through …

The internet keeps getting cooler

I have just followed Seth Godin’s advice & now I feel like a god: http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2005/03/watching_the_bl.html So I built a few Technorati watchlist items and I created myself a bloglines account & now I can stay up-to-date with everything that’s going on in the world, including all my buddies’ blogs — …
