On the 2nd February 2013 I spent $40 on "The Sling Thing". If I could track down the guy who sold it to me I could now tell him that he was right, it's a great product. I'm not sure what the official title for the item...


My new addiction?

1 year ago, for day 102 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

It's Friday night, it's late, I want to go to bed. I can't, I still have to write my words. But why? Why is this important? Why do I have to do this? What do I have to lose? Is this my new addiction? I have to write or I...

5 hours to go on a Friday

1 year ago, for day 95 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

The sun just broke through the clouds which is a surprise as it has been overcast and rainy all day. I have missed the sun and today, even though my office was 73°F (~23°C) I was feeling cold. Feeling cold didn't seem right. The heating hadn't come on so the...
