Apologies and showering in the dark

First of all, I want to apologise for the post yesterday - I hope I didnt offend anyone. I have not had any comments to that affect, but I understand that reading the last statements of those death row inmates could be quite disturbing. So, apologies...

Now... last night, whilst in the shower, the bulb in the bathroom went. Which meant I was then showering in the dark. Have you ever done that?? Talk about weird... but it felt really good. Such a strange sensation, not being able to see anything but having this stream of hot water pouring over you. If you've never done it, I recommend you try it.

Another day mentoring today... it gives me a lot of pleasure teaching someone else to code, and I do have a bit of a knack for it. Similar to last night, when I played football. We only had 9 people turn up, but one of the blokes bought along his son (10 - 12 years old I think) so we had him on our side to make it 5-a-side. We still stuffed the opposition, but the thing I enjoyed was playing along side this youngster, talking to him, encouraging him, helping him. At the end of the game his dad (who was on the other side) said to me "Thanks for encouraging him, he's really enjoyed it tonight"...

Im such a nice bloke me!

The family are off today to Wales, so I'll be all alone (*sniff sniff*) as of about 09.30 today.

Have a good Tuesday listeners...

I guess it's morbid but I was interested. I only wondered if you were still bored and your boss was still gone for you to find something weird like this to post.

I've always had a weird dark side. While others were reading romance novels in HS, I was reading thisgs like "Bloodletters and Bad Men" by Jay Robert Nash.

And the showering in the dark thing reminded me of the sensory deprivation tank expirience in the book 'Altered States". I have often pondered what it would be like to try one out.

Enjoy your time.

Yes, I'd love to try a sensory deprivation tank... whenever I think of one I think of the Simpsons episode when Homer tries one... "Sensory deprivation kicks ass!"
