My feet hurt. Mostly because they're the colour of really sunburnt feet (a perfect description).

Internet blackouts

Does anyone remember when I protested the ridiculous idea of
censorship in Australian internetting stuff by applying a blackout
screen to my blog? Well, I'm sure it reached a significant audience in
order to stop, or at least postpone, the silly notion in this country.
I'm not in, nor am I a citizen of, the USA, so I'm not going to bother
doing it again now, even though I am sure that were I to take part in
the protest, I'd definitely reach a larger audience than any of the
other sites taking part, like Wikipedia, for example.

Domestic travel

Within the next 4 weeks, I'll be spending time at Byron Bay and in Melbourne.

Morning coffee

I bought a latte this morning, which will come as no surprise to anyone who's had morning coffee with me. The barista drew a leaf on the foam. I realise that a leaf is probably one of the simpler designs, but it's better than nothing and a like coffee art.

I've discovered that there are serious holes in my knowledge of German regarding the future tense (or tenses?) and prepositions. I came to this conclusion after attempting to write a text message that seemed to be mostly future tense and prepositions.

Social Media Exhaustion

I joined another social media site today. I think I'm going to drown in a sea of social media soon. I've got profiles on Facebook, Google+, Diaspora, Twitter, LinkedIn, Blogger, and now Path. I technically also have a profile on Foursquare, but I'm ignoring that one now as it seems pointless (why use a third-party program to publish details of check-ins to Facebook when I can do that directly?). I've never had a Myspace page, and never plan to.
Several years ago, when Twitter was new and fresh, I decided I didn't want to join because I didn't see a need for it. I regret that decision now because I have joined, and my preferred usernames were taken, which may not have been the case had I joined all those years ago. I joined it mainly for the puns, but I've stayed for the made-up stats, random trivia, and useless banalities.
I hope there aren't any new social media on the horizon. I don't know how I'd keep up with it all.

It's been a while

My last post was in november. I completely missed december altogether. I'll try to use this more this year. Maybe it could be a resolution or something.
