6:58pm: Rest In Peace, Scott Lofgren
I just heard an ex-boyfriend of mine passed away last weekend in a roads accident. It was quite a shock as I hadn't heard from him in several years now and it's one of those things you always hear about, but never expect it to happen to you.

From today's 'San Francisco Chronicle':

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2005/12/20/BAGBAGAQ251.DTL&hw=scott+lofgren&sn=001&sc=1000

I first met Scott while working at a magazine in 1998. We would have monthly staff meetings on Tuesday evenings and we got to chatting after several of these. After I left the magazine, we dated briefly, but it didn't work out. I think it was just a bad time in my life with my fathers passing and everything.

He was always laughing and smiling, and I think that's what I remember most about him. Scott was a paramedic and he had a certain way with the patients he met. He had one of those personalities where he got on with everyone. When I took a few paramedic classes myself, he was in my thoughts a lot. But I never got back in touch. Looks like I left it too long. He'll be missed.

Cheers, mate.

1:38pm: At least we're brushing our teeth :)
From a recent Channel 4 documentary on shoplifters from their 'Dispatches' Series:

http://www.channel4.com/news/microsites/S/secrets_of_the_shoplifters/index.html

According to the documentary, £2 million quids worth are pinched daily. The Ten most stolen items from shops on the high street are:

10. Meat (esp. packets of steaks)
09. Instant Coffee (only the name brands)
08. Electric toothbrushes and replacement heads
07. Medicines and vitamins (esp. pregnancy tests)
06. DVD's and PC games
05. Batteries (only name brands)
04. Clothing (esp. sportswear)
03. Cosmetics and toiletries (esp. Olay and Lynx)
02. Alcohol
01. Razors (esp. Gillette Mach 3)

Much of this makes sense, but razors? Why are they the most nicked item (pardon the pun)?

From Melbourne, Australia - last Fridays 'The Age':

Net's new menace: Splogging

Just when you thought the spammers couldn't find another way to annoy.....

Now they're creating bogus blogs full of ads and will comments on other peoples blogs with adding links to their own sites. Most of the comments on my blogs are spam. :(

The old cliche stands true... There oughtta be a law...
