Holy Bananas - it's all happening so bloody fast I can't get my head around it. In less than two weeks my Scotland Adventure will be but a bunch of wonderful memories and I will be basking in the last of PEI's summer sun (I hope).

Today I said goodbye to Kelly & Lindsay who are off to tackle Europe on a two-month adventure. I'll put a link to their blog up asap. Anyways, it was sad, because now all my flatmate (who have also become really fab freinds) have leftm, and now its just me, the bathroom scales, some veggie hotdogs and my new Scissor Sisters CD left.

In the not-so-sad department - only three full days of work left!! Then a whole week off and visitors from Canada :)

I had another long weekend, which was fabulous. That is definitely one thing I will miss about Europe -the holiday allottment over here is so generous.

Anyways, Thursday night I went to see Tommy Tiernan with my workmates. He was, as expected, hilarious. Definitely worth the £13 ticket price. I also discovered a new favorite bar, The Wash (pronuonced The Waarrsh if you are from Ireland or PEI!). Very classy, but with cheese music so you knew the classy decor was just a front...Kind of like the NOodle House in Charlotteown is probably a front for something else :)

Friday I franticallya dn unsuccessfully tried to get some emailing done - including the payment of my credit card bill. Unfortunately it's been so long since I used on-line baking that I can't remember my password. I hope I don't get a bad credit rating. That might kind of bite. I also tried to do some emailng, bt was late meeting Brandon so didn't get anywhere with that.

Anyways, Brandon & I met up midday to see if there were any festival shows at half price that we might want to see. There weren't, so we did what any normal person would do under these circumstances and decided to get a bite to eat. Well, I got a bite and Brandon got a main meal, That boy likes to eat.

Following on our meal, or rather Brandon's meal and my side order of potatoes and veggies, we went in search of a hoste for my friends to stay at next week. I checked out three hostels and highly recommend Castle Rock Hostel to anyone coming to Edinburgh - prices are decent, location fab and rooms super nice/clean.

Brandon & I then went to book tickets for a show on Monday. I've decided to spend money like it is going out of style... By this time it was 3 o'clock in teh afternoon - awhole two hours since Brandon had eaten. He suggested we find another place to eat. I obliged. He ordered another main meal while I cursed my metabolism and watched enviabley as he enjoyed his stir fry with nae a worry that he would gain a clove or a stone or whatever. Gads - anyway, mental note for future - avoid eating with people like Brandon & Ailbhe. One cannot help but become slightly jealous/paranoid/crazy....

Saturday Alibhe & I hopped on a bus to Inverness early in the am. WE arrived in teh capital of the higlands midday to wet & windy weather. We proceeded to eat and shop the afternoon away. I *may* have spent way too much money ona black velvet blazer which I will now have to live in, in order to make it worth the money invested.

IN the evening we went out on the town. It was a rather hilarious evening, which can only be compared to night out in Charlottetown but with more kilts and no cover charges. Oh my, it was rather interesting. The last place we ended up had a very skewed demographic- about 70% men - but as I quickly realised - quality is much more important than quantity.

Sunday we puttered around Inverness, ate more and waited to get the bus back to civilisation. I don't know why, but I decided that I best spend Sunday evening out on the town. Lindsay, Beth, Kelly, Grand & Anne were all present at some point or another. Lindsay & Beth pprovided much amusement following their consumption of liquor. I had never seen wither properly inebriated before and it was quite the sight!

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon watching a Fringe show, MacHomer, with Brandon. It was a guy impersonating all these Simpsons chracters doing MacBeth - it was actually very impressive - he'd integrated so many things into the script and the show, he also had a film screen behind him to assist with setting the scenes. He did an encore of the top 20 annoying voices in music doing Bohemiam Rahpsody. And then, predictably, Brandon wanted to grab a bite to eat after the show. I ordered a starter of haggis which was morethe size of a main. Now onder I've gained a clove!

Last night we went to Anne's for dinner and farewells. It was delicious (dinner) and sad (the farewells for Kely & Lins).

K - back to 'work' .

You forgot to mention that my first 'main meal' haggis Friday was smaller than your starter haggis yesterday. :)

Hotmail News by www.infopage.cc - Oct. 17, 2005


Microsoft to Test New Hotmail Interface (AnandTech)
For those of you that use Hotmail, Microsoft is testing a new user interface for the popular web-based email client: Microsoft is preparing to publicly test its new front end Hotmail, code-named "Kahuna" and simply branded: Mail Beta. The upgrade will support an AJAX-based interface that has been rewritten from the ground up using...

AOL Offers $299 PC (Connected Home Media)
Everyone's favorite dominant ISP introduced an intriguing offer this week: Agree to use AOL for a year, and you can purchase a low-end PC from the company for just $299. Although the deal seems like a bid to stem the flow of subscribers eager to get out from under the multicolored, dumbed-down AOL interface, the offer actually appears to be decent, assuming you're not into playing the latest 3-D games. Of course, you can get a decent Dell system for not much more than the cost of the AOL PC plus the service (about $585 when you add it all up).

Preview of New MSN Hotmail (Slashdot)
An anonymous reader writes "Here is a Preview of a new MSN Hotmail system, using AJAX. Currently in Beta testing." Most interesting is how the user interface more closely resembles a traditional local application. It's definitely a big step in that direction.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)

Well I just got back from karate and I am so tired. I am currently doing some research for school and stumbled across your blog. Which cracks me up really. The internet can certainly bring you in the wrong direction. Even though your blog is not completely related I think your doing a great job. I have read back through the archives and lots of people make some very valid points. Well I have been on-line forever it seems. I need to continue to plug away at card credit fixed rate. If you have the energy swing by our site. I try to update my site weekly and maybe you will see something you like. I already snagged your URL and put it in my favorites. If you do not mind I will be back again. Great job! Sincerely card credit fixed rate.

Debt can help you reduce your interest burden by charging an interest rate lower than the rate on your existing loans. Debt consolidation loan can also allow you to make small monthly payments by extending the loan period
