new phone...HTC Desire S

Ive finally got a new phone after several months of using a £10 pay as you go replacement Samsung dumb phone..My contract was up for renewal so i bagged me an HTC Desire S, which is my second HTC Android based phone ive had, previously i had the Tattoo which was running Android 1.6 and had a terrible screen..which i eventually broke after throwing it in a football (soccer) induced rage..hence why i had the temporary Samsung thing.

Anyway, the Desire S i have is running Android 2.3.3 which seems to be a lot nicer than my previous experience of 1.6..I mean that felt was sluggish, apps constantly crashed and it was just like using an unpolished turd.
The phone is nice, has a lovely screen and came with quite a lot of preinstalled apps and the usual shit that Orange preinstall as well.
Ive been impressed with the camera, well to be fair anything is an improvement on the iPod Touch camera that ive been using of late..

Below are some random shots from the garden, and obviously some cat pictures.

Garden stuff mkII

Savour these delightful pictures of my garden, pretty much everything I planted in Feb-March has began to grow. Potatoes are going wild in their planter thing.

Books what i have read lately..

I have taken up reading after a long break from this much loved activity. Theres something about the smell and feel of dead tree and ink your hand that makes reading a lovely thing.
I purchased a bunch of books off of the Amazon a few weeks back and i have been diligently progressing through my tomes.

Heres what i have been reading:

On the Road (Penguin Modern Classics)On the Road 

Life: Keith RichardsLife: Keith Richards

The Royal Bin laden wedding Long time update post..Boom!

Its been a few weeks since the last post, this had been due to a simple lack of effort on my behalf..i apologise.

Im posting this blog whilst sitting in the garden on a lovely sunny Monday, its warm(ish) but quite breezy...the garden is looking rather splendid (photos to follow later), my potatoe plants have gone bat shit crazy in their hopefully i shall get a good crop of spuds at some point, not exactly sure when you harvest them..any ideas?

Its been a news readers wet dream of a bank holiday weekend what with the much spaffed over Royal Wedding and now in todays breaking news of Osama Bin Ladens capture and subsequent death, its like a jackpot of news food.

The supposed death picture of Bin Laden caused much hilarity amongst many a photoshop spotter..this is one of the worst photoshops of a dead person i have ever reminds me of when i was a younger person and discovered Deluxe Paint II (or was it III) on my Amiga, there were a set of pre drawn faces and i remember drawing blood and scars on one of them and yes it was almost as good as the Bin Laden one.
picture taken from gizmodos article....

Also causing much merriment was this awesome website of photoshopped russian weddings....

There really seems to be a small shrunk man in large high heeled shoe thing going on in a lot of these pictures..
