St Peter's in Rome

Stansted Espresso

Woo hoooh – we’re flying to Rome in the morning. We are getting picked up by the cab at *3:45am*. I hope the 4:30 Stansted Express isn’t delayed (like the rest of the London rail network regularly is) and we make our flight. I have to confess that I am a little nervous about missing the plane.

The really crazy thing is that the train trip to the airport costs us more than the trip to the Rome! Such is life. I have been reading a little about the sights in Rome, and as we only have two full days of exploring we are going to be busy kiwis. Still, I’m hoping that by taking part in the crazy ritual at the Trevi Fountain we will one day return to the eternal city for a longer period.

Mulholland Drive

I have created a new section on the site called blah_blah. This section is intended for longer rants that are too long for regular blogs.

Mulholland Drive is the subject of the first such rant. I think that I understand the film, and hopefully my take on it will hold water. Feel free to comment on it – I’d love to know what other people who have seen the film think.

Update (March 2007): erm, yeah, blah_blah no longer exists….

Mk 1.2 – Orange

This is Mk 1.2 of bucket_fountain. It features an improved and slightly slimmer style-sheet, a more readable yet still garish colour, improved navigation for accessing previous blogs, and a number of other minor tweaks. It lays the foundation for my next trick, which will involve more CSS refinement, improved snaps navigation, and maybe a comments feature on individual blogs, and maybe something to do with XML….

The other exciting news for me is that after watching David Lynch’s excellent movie “Mulholland Drive” for the second time, I got it. Stoked. And actually so simple too! I will upload my thoughts on it very soon.

Oh yes, and off to Roma on Tuesday. I am quite excited about the trip and hope the weather in Italy is a little better than in London at the moment.
