Time to head to bed

Recently I've been finding that I've been terrible at going to sleep at a good time..
I can actually -get- to bed quite early in the evening, say 10ish..but I just can't bring myself to go to sleep until probably 1 or 2ish, which means in turn I'm waking up later or just generally feeling more tired when I wake's a horrible horrible cycle.
So recently to procrastinate from sleeping I've managed to; Watch a large amount of films, listen to a few albums, write stuff in a scrapbook, think about writing more stuff in a scrap book, write a blog, read a book, and finally chat to a rather lovely girl from new zealand...

At this current moment I've just finished talking to aforementioned girl and I'm listening to a David Crowder Band live album that I've just downloaded, oh and of course I'm writing this post..those three things put together are probably the most active I've made myself today. I woke up at about 11ish and then decided to read, have a very long shower and read some more. Then watched WALL-E (which I found to be very cute and definitely made me want to do even more recycling than I currently do) and then I relaxed on one of the sofas downstairs for a few hours. I do love those sofas, even if they are green...

Might go swimming tomorrow, or phone Rob and ask if he wants to go to the Gym. Honestly, who wouldn't want to go to the Gym with me? Although thinking about it..I don't really have any gym can't go to the gym in jeans really can you? damn..might have to be swimming then! 

Right, off to bed then! ...or might read a book..or something..

Titles for titles

So, input boxes on websites are funny things.
As anyone with basic html knowledge will tell you, ‹input› will display a box where you can enter...things. You can give these boxes names, and not just for sentimental value, (although, that'd be great..) , they actually do have a use..and that use is to send information from one page to the next.
The problem comes when you use a generic name for your input box, such as "title", like this blogging system does. Now, how many websites do you think use an input box with the name title, go on...have a guess...well I can tell you it's a hell of a lot of websites and when you've entered thousands of things into those text boxes and go to type something new into one to say, start a new blog post, you get a very long list of things that you typed and can't remember why.

Here are a few of my titles from previous websites:
Untitled album (side note, I used to think when I was little that untitled actually said united, it wasn't until about the age of 12 when I actually read what MS Paint wanted to save my files as that I noticed it was Untitled..)
Test 2
Test 3
Test 5 (no love for test 4?)
mov too?
test server
Render test

I don't think I'm ever going to remember why I posted those to some website somewhere.
Maybe someone will, somewhere.
