So, Saturday I decided to try another photography/blogging project. Every now and then I'll try to take a photo at hourly intervals during the day just to see how the day looks through the eyes of the camera once per hour. In retrospect, a lot of interesting photos were taken in between the hours, so just sticking to the hourly photo loses a bit of colour. We also did a lot of walking between photos, seeing quite a bit of Agen that didn't get recorded on the hour. But anyway..9am
I was chilling, doing stuff on the laptop and generally enjoying the Saturday morning.10am
I tried to wake Bruce up, somewhat unsuccessfully. I took a photo of Bruce sleeping
, but since that's his natural state of being (and therefore not something new and exciting), I thought I'd take a photo of the art above the bed.11am
I still hadn't managed to get Bruce out of the house, so this is a view of the back garden.12pm
Bruce is still getting ready. This Saturday morning thing and Bruce don't get along so well.1pm
There was no explanation on this statue at all. 2pm
Bruce took me out to lunch :D3pm
Hanging out in the Sci-Fi section of a librairie (book shop). Note the book with my name on it..4pm
We had only just left the librairie - this is the street outside. It's possible that I made sure we left before 4pm just so I could take a photo outside.5pm
We desperately needed some groceries, so I left for a walk to the Hyper Casino almost as soon as we got back home.
This is a view of the front of our house.6pm
Nearly home again. This is a street very close to our house where people bring their dogs to poo. Seriously. 7pm
Easiest dinner in the world.. Baked potatoes.9pm
Photo of some stuff we bought at the librairie. We wound up watching 'Happy Feet' and not taking any more photos. BTW 'Happy Feet' is really cute and all kids should watch it.
Well, that was my day summarised in photos and words. Nothing like living it, but better than not posting about it.

This blog is weird. Since it's just about me and whatever the hell I feel like talking about, things change pretty quickly and often it all revolves around the technology.
I've managed to go through a lot of different eras of blogging. I occasionally did full blog posts throughout the whole process of evolution. I used to link a lot of interesting things (now on delicious, tumblr, DIGG, stumbleupon) using various funky bookmarklets. Some of those links were the impetus for some fully fledged posts, but they all look the same in retrospect.
I tried adding pictures where they would chronologically go (Hmm. A photoblog. Now taken over by flickr). I blogged tickets to gigs. I emailed in posts from work. I auto-blogged links from delicious. Then there were lots and lots of very short posts just telling people something random (now on twitter, but brought here by magic for posterity).
My whole blog could be summarised as me playing with random web shit, then realising that there is a better way to do it. Also, at various points in time this website has become my lifestream, but then I realised it would be better kept separate from that, as my lifestream is a sort of firehose.
But somehow, even after realising this, it still seems right to add daily summaries of my twittering to my blog. The summaries aren't very long. And I probably write more in a day on twitter than I used to in months on this blog.
Again, it all comes down to simplicity of technology. I can twitter from my phone using text - that means I can be anywhere in the world with phone access. I don't need internet or a computer - just a small amount of credit on my phone. I seriously LOVE technology.
I'm sure if I could be bothered I could make this all more coherent. But I'm sure you get the gist. And I'm just pondering, there's no real value here. :)
