THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY
Movie adaptation of Douglas Adams's cult sci-fi comedy novel. Arthur Dent escapes the destruction of the Earth... blah blah blah.
Surely it's not that long since we all trooped off to the cinema to see the film? And now it's on telly!
One of those double take moments.

Knowing that I'm something of an '80s music geek, I'm sure you can guess what I misread that headline as.
Mmm, that's good scheduling.

Tonight on Channel 4:
1900: The Man Who Predicted 9/11
...followed immediately by...
2000: Lord Of The Rings - The Two Towers
So the man who predicted 9/11 was... Tolkein?
Where have I been for the past week?

I'm glad you asked me that.
We've moving house. We were going to be moving house on June 1st, but then we got offered a better house so we're now moving in a couple of weeks' time. That's the good bit.
Now the problem. Having told BT that we were moving, we then had to tell them that we weren't moving yet so please don't cut our internet off. Okay, they said, and promptly cut it off anyway. Cue angry phone call. "Oh well," says the hapless phone monkey, "you shouldn't have changed your mind then."
Cue escalation of angry phone call to a higher power. "We'll reconnect you, but we can't do it for a week." Not terribly impressive, but okay.
So Friday rolls around. They haven't reconnected it. Cue another angry phone call. "Oh," says another hapless phone monkey, "the order's been cancelled."
Cue phone call to Virgin Media, who were astonishingly helpful and even gave us a dial up connection to use until we move properly and we can get broadband back. BT? Bloody Terrible.
