banana phone

Thanks to ebaumsworld.com

catch up time

My blogging skills and slipping a little bit into this new year. Infact I've been pretty crummy when it comes to posting posts! And to my 1 (maybe 2?) regular readers, I'm sorry.

From now on, I shall be blogging my hearts content and until my ears and eyes bleed. (See the banana phone post). Think of it as my new New Years resolution.

I think I may have to write a few posts in the past, and I will defiantly have to put up some, or a lot of pictures in the past. Unfortunately I'm gaming tonight, so I can't spend my whole evening getting this blog back to normal again. My plan is to clean up my desktop (what a mess... I just can't work with a messy desktop!) and then tomorrow blog away!

On a separate note: I saw Munich tonight. Its long, its not a very light hearted up beat film, and its not a comedy. Otherwise it was pretty good. And yes, it is very intense. Go watch it!


The first month of the new year isn't over yet and look what we came across. 06-C-323. Whoever you are your a fecker. You think you can park like this and get away with it, just coz you have a new shiny car? Or else your not all there... up there...

i have returned

I'm Still alive!! Don't you all worry... i'm still here! I've just about caught up with all the college work that i needed to do since before Christmas! I've also set the balls in motion about my summer, with the guys in Switzerland wanting to know soon enough if i'm applying to go back!!

So Kandersteg and the Reunion.
It was brilliant! It was my first time there in the Winter and seeing the place all covered in Snow was so weird! It looks so different. On saying that, it looks the same as well, from the Train station to the Des Alps and the Centre, some things never change! Once i steped back through those double doors into the reception area, it was... Yeah... i'm home again!!

We had a brilliant week, with lots and lots of friend that i know and met over my time there, and new friends made! I did a fair bit of skiing in both Sunnb├╝el and Oeschinensee. The Weather was Cold... -25°C one of the days! (yeah... DAYS!) and it snowed! And it wasn't like snow i've seen before. It was thick stuff... and it filled the place up pretty fast. Covering EVERYTHING in a blanket of white. Truely amazing!

New Years Eve was great. We roasted a pig on the spit and then ate it, and then we all dressed up in Costumes in the theme of Wild Wild West! We all moved over to the Centre where we joined the rest of the Staff and guests in a disco to ring in the new year. It was amazing and one of the Best New Years Eves that i ever had! Following that we started the Pub Crawl. I made to High Moon and gave up. I didn't want to wait 2 hours for Breakfast, so i went to bed at about 7:30 i think!!

The rest of my stay was just the usual hanging out, Skiing, Pizza in Desies, Ice Cream in Desies, watching DVD's and so on!!

Looking forward to my next trip out there again!

tall man

Conor fixing the projector. Ger isn't tall enough to reach it! You would think the Dept. Head would have more respect for equipment that allow students stand on the tables?!!

I've arrived home yesterday and back to college today. The fun really never stops!

Catch you on the flip side with photos and what not!

the wedding

On the 6th of January, Matt Franzke and Katie Taylor got married in Kandersteg!

Unfortunately I was not able to stay for the Wedding of the century, but I was there in Spirit... I did manage to log on and see the webcam as crowds were building outside the Scout Centre as Matt Katie pulled up in their horse drawn carriage!

I wish them all the best in their future (non KISC) lives!

summer 2003 reunion

Summer 2003 Reunion

Over the Reunion we had 9 of our 26 (35%) Summer Short Termers at the one place at the same time!!

It was pretty amazing, and we just about managed it at the last second! It was great catching up with all the guys who spent those 3 months that I will never forget together with me in Switzerland!

Hope to meet up with more of you guys soon!

new year resolutions

So its the start of a New Year and this is usually the time I make 1 very achievable goal for my self! This year is no different!

My New Years Resolution for 2006 is to get my Full Driving license. In 1 year, and hopefully before the summer. Its a challenge, and I like a good one!

So fingers crossed!
