Never gonna give you up

Hello blog - sorry I've been a bit absent, I'm going to point the finger at facebook for that one, it's such a fantastic networky meeting-place that I'm spending way too much time there! But don't worry, blogging is always my first love, I'm never gonna give you up. (Did you see that? Like what I did there?)

Lots has been happening lately. Lots. I'm starting a new job next week, starting a Connect Group at church, went to the Blue Mountains twice in one weekend, flew up to Brisbane a while ago, got a new pink mock croc handbag, featured prominently on Mishy's blog, have had my lovely sister staying with me, made an exciting decision to move house in a few weeks... lots! But the best thing? The most exciting thing? The thing that is causing me the most joy?

iTunes. Yes, iTunes. (Damn, am I supposed to capitalise the I when I'm using that word at the start of the sentence? What's the ettiquette there??) I've recently discovered the glory inherent in iTunes and its name is 80's rock. I've been downloading 80's songs left right and centre! So my iPod is a bit of an 80's revival, and since I usually only listen to it in my car I've been driving in a total retro disco - but it's so fun!

Latest acquisitions include:
Electric Dreams - Human League
Together Forever - Rick Astley
Hip to be Square - Huey Lewis and the News (this could be my theme song)
Final Countdown - Europe
Fame - Irene Cara

Classics, all.

Got any more suggestions for me? Hit the comments.

We get to decide what that means

I found this online in my travels, and loved it. I had to share it with you because I think it contains a clue to the way my brain works...

More brilliance here: http://xkcd.com/123/

The small print on this site reads:
We did not invent the algorithm. The algorithm consistently finds Jesus. The algorithm killed Jeeves. 
The algorithm is banned in China. The algorithm is from Jersey. The algorithm constantly finds Jesus.
This is not the algorithm. This is close.

I like random brilliance :)
