News of the Lard

It is an exciting time in keithlard world as I have been doing a lot of intresting things, programming Ruby, eating curry ekcetera and investergating various topics. On Monday I went to LRUG which is a special holding area for London Ruby freaks so that they do not endanger normal members of society, and drank a great deal and made a new friend rlivsey, which is a super chap, Also yesterday I had a trip to the music shop to see my friend Bob, I do not know if that is really his name but he looks just like the sort of fellow that should be called Bob, you know exactly what I mean.

I have been doing a lot of music lately eg viz. trying to play the slide guitar, which is quite difficult if you do not know, and I got various bits of guitar equipment such as strings, picks ekcetera. Also some intresting DVDs, which is on Blues Harmonica and Jazz Sax, so it should be quite entertaining watching me trying to play three instruments at once (especially playing sax with a harmonica in my mouth).

In other news, I am reading Peter Matthiessen’s The Snow Leopard which is an absolutely fantastic book and full of such beautiful and poetic writing that I am reading each page twice for maximum enjoyment. It is great travel writing talking about a hard journey on foot through the Himalaya into Tibet, but it is also about Buddhism, Zen and spirituality, and perhaps if you walk long among high and silent mountains it is hard to avoid thinking about that stuff. I highly recommend it anyway, even if you are not intrested in leopards.

I guess I have been feeling pretty low lately due to my girlfriend packing me in, or not actually my girlfriend but I suppose I had started to think of her that way, so it is good that I seem to have got the zest for life back. PS this is not a plea for sympathy. (Just send cash.)
