Busy busy busy

There's been a lot going on, considering the interview, Cath and Martin's wedding, visits to and of friends, and the weekend being capped off by an enjoyable couple of hours of internet radio (something I like to do on occasion, with Jon - super playout software writer - either in the studio or way down south; it was the latter for yesterday's effort).

The photos I took at the wedding can be found among my erstwhile (you know, I've never knew what exactly that meant) collection, and the I'm hoping, although baby Luke slept through much of the celebrations, our children will have some fond memories of probably the biggest family reunion in years - and possibly the last for many more, as Mary and Roger will be leaving the UK in January for the Antipodes.

I'm a little disappointed that I haven't written my blog lately, but the anticipation of the wedding and the apprehension of the job interview (which took place on Friday) made for more pre-occupation than I could lay aside to chronicle the events. In the event, though, both went rather well - I spent about an hour and a half in a small office being grilled by the managers, shortly after which I was spoken to on the phone to let me know that I'd been successful.

So, unless things take a sudden turn for the worse (I have yet to receive a response to the email I wrote to my old manager saying that I would not be returning to TV land) I'm hoping to be in radio for the foreseeable future, which is rather exciting. It's only just beginning to sink in.

I've got plenty of links to share, so I shall stop here. Hopefully between now and Christmas (only ten days time? Wow!), I'll be able to keep this a little more up-to-date.

Links of the day

  • www.globalspec.com/trebuchet : An addictive, physics-based challenge, which involves pinging things. Surely the best sort...? (thank you, Sunshine, for the link!)
  • www.hamsterfight.co.uk : The homepage of a band called (not surprisingly) Hamster Fight, of which, Doug - an ftlfm DJ - is a member. I rather like the music they make.
  • www.lowmorale.co.uk/creep : (it's a bit huge - sorry!) Probably one of the most beautiful internet animations I've ever seen, although the soundtrack helps. (thanks to Elin for the link!)
  • www.hamncheez.com/media/flash/o_incomodo.swf : Award-winning Flash fly-swatting whimsy. (thank you, Cath, for the link!)

Today's minipic: A trend is emerging - the arrangement of garish Christmas illuminations, including inflatable glowing snowmen and other brightly coloured light pollution outside people's house. Even the weekly free newspaper is offering £200 for the 'best'. There can be no competition - this one, on the Farley Hill estate, is breathtaking. Unfortunately, the photo doesn't do it justice, both due to the sheer brightness, and because it doesn't show the animated display on the lawn. If you find yourself in Luton during the Christmas season, it's definitely something to be experienced.Bright lights!
