The surreality...

Cr...Chromium
You scored 15 Mass, 13 Electronegativity, 59 Metal, and 0 Radioactivity!

Oooohaaaaah.... shiny! You probably have an incredibly stable and
well-maintained group of friends... that probably also don't get out
much either. You're not one to get bogged down by a problem. Of course,
I'm basing this upon Chromium's ultra-low water-exchange constant and
its corrosion-resistant properties, and I wouldn't be too surprised if
the analogy doesn't even apply.

Anti-phonetic alphabet

While having a discussion in the pub about the phonetic alphabet (alpha-bravo-charlie-delta-echo-etc...), as you do, we got the idea of creating an anti-phonetic alphabet containing words that start with the letter but don't sound like they do. Examples are 'knife' for k or 'gnat' for g.

Here's the ones we got so far

a - aeon
c - champagne
g - gnat/gnome
h - human
j - jalapeno
k - knife
l - llewellyn
p - pneumatic/physics
q - qatar
s - sherry
w - whole
x - xylophone
y - yvonne

Anyone have any other suggestions? Pretty pointless I know, but most pub conversations are like that :).

Ah, and we have new foxy! :)

I'm still alive

Just thought I'd let people know, although it might not come as a complete surprise :).

I've started drawing again. I'm attempting to read this to help me along. I've been told it's quite good. One of the first exercises is to draw a self-portrait, a drawing of someone from memory and your own hand. I've done the first and did the last about a year ago. I tried the second, without much success. For some reason all I draw now ends up looking like manga (not necessarily bad, but annoying if you're going for realism). Aw, well...

I've also joined a gym. I'm hoping it'll strengthen my chest a bit more so I can breathe easier. I don't know if this actually works, but we'll see. It can't really harm much to get some exercise (except for it costing money, but that's life for you...).

At least it's Friday. Yay! :)
