Transition to WordPress

I’d had enough of blogger and have moved to WordPress.

I must thank ady for creating the import script I used. It allows you to work around the fact that WordPress doesn’t currently support imports from Blogger 2.0.

Frabtabulous greetings 2007

I spent the entry of 2007 at Destination: Decadance. It was a big ol’ dance party in Wellington with two zones. I indulged in substances I hadn’t had before, resulting in me being a bundle of love and happiness and dancing till sweat poured out of my face.

One of the best NYEs in some time (I think I’m getting bored of alcohol).

Briefly my goals this year are:

Become an optimist even if my brain chemicals tell me otherwise.
Finish my PhD.
Get regular DJ gig in a club.
Moderate the drinking.
Cut down on the fatty foods.
Gym every weekday morning, run every evening.
