Happy Valentine’s Day

Well people, happy St. Valentine‘s day.

My love is sleeping in her bed as the day wastes away… I suppose we’ll spend some time together later.

Myself, I like to wake up and enjoy the day. What is happy about today? If you don’t have a certain someone to share it with, could you share it with friends and/or family who have nothing to do as well? *shrug*

Well… This morning I basically did some work from home that I won’t get paid for. Server management stuff… and now I think I’ll be going out for coffee.

Cheers.

My friend and co-worker Corby a.k.a. Kork has set up a great place to discuss your XML related questions. Check it out! It’s http://www.discussxml.com/.

See you there!

Jammin’ first birthday

Today I attended my friend Jake’s first born’s first birthday. The event was set in a historic building in town and lots of friends from out of town were there. It was great.

His son seemed to really enjoy it.

Afterward, we spent some time catching up at the local coffee shop – reminding me of how important it is to keep in touch with friends.

Yeah, like that’ll happen. 😛

When I left the coffee shop I went over to my friend Steph’s place and jammed a bit. We tried to hammer out One by Metallica. Yeah, we had fun trying.

Other than that, nothing productive really.

Apologies

What I forgot to mention earlier is that I am currently developing this web application as I go. I add new features each day but the site, as it is, is incomplete.

I’ll try my best to leave unfinished features hidden so as to not confuse new visitors.

Today was interesting. I went up to Trent U for the first time in a long, long time. I ate at the O.C. caffeteria with Niki and then we went back into town. It was a bust as far as getting anything done, but I hadn’t seen campus in a while.

I took a few photos today, some of which I like. I’ll try to post them when I add the picture functionality.

The first blog…

Well folks,

I never thought I would say this, but Ean Bowman has entered the world of weblogging or ‘blogging’ for short.

The phenomenon didn’t seem attractive at first to me as it seemed somewhat stifling to my creativity. I didn’t see the value in having a place to put my thoughts into nice compartmentalized little articles with pictures.

Well, those days have passed and since ‘blogging’ has become a widespread phenomenon on the internet I decided to join in the fray.

I hereby cristen this, the ‘blog’ of Ean Bowman.

Cheers
