New year, jobs, twitter and the superbowl

Where the hell have the 00s gone? I can't get over that it is already 2009 never mind into the second month of the new year. Shieeeeeeeet as Senator Clay Davis would say. On reflection the last year or so was a bit...meh. In many ways it never really felt like 2008 ever started properly because it was such a disjointed year. Partly because of the fire (it is now over a year since that happened) but it goes a bit more than that. It feels like I am in a state of stasis and at 28 i'm feeling much worse angst than I ever did as a moody teenager!

Currently applying for jobs / waiting for interviews just as the economy goes into crisis. Although that has not really impacted on me quite yet as so far as i've been applying for jobs in the public sector - there are still jobs to be had just a bit more competition because the city or whatever isn't seen as such an attractive option at the moment. Naturally the only job i feel particularly enthused about is also the one that will be the hardest to get.

Signed up for twitter a couple of weeks ago. Seems to be the new in thing to do online and unlike some of past in things in social networking like myspace, facebook and bebo i quite like it. The idea of it sounds quite banal and boring (and the content can be like this) but at the same time is also quite addictive. Most of the attention it has received in the media so far has been the famous people on it, who rather than getting their PRs to update stuff are doing it themselves - Andy Murray, Stephen Fry, John Cleese, Russell Brand, Jonathan Ross and Lance Armstrong being some of the more well known names. Admittedly most of what the famous people post is bit boring but there is some good stuff too - like Stephen Fry posting updates when stuck in an elevator or MC Hammer posting photos from pitchside at the superbowl. I'm sure he gets hundreds of messages everyday just saying STOP....HAMMERTIME! I had to resist the urge.

I am @ http://www.twitter.com/trequartista if anyone is a member and wants to follow my tweets.

Actually while on the subject of the Superbowl. Every year i stay up to watch it and give it a go to see what all the fuss is about. Every year i end up getting bored after half an hour and falling asleep. Every year I post a message on LJ moaning about it. Not this year though, it was just so exciting - i enjoyed every minute of it and was still wide awake when the game finished around 3am over here. Maybe I finally "get" American Football. Or maybe it was just a great game and a one off. The halftime show with Bruce Springsteen looked good as well.
