I think this is an easier way to natter with you, is it not, than the other non-BBC site we infrequent? I know I have not been about much. We must not lose touch, though...

Hope you're very well. smiley - smiley

Good morning!

How very clever of you.

Yes, I have been conspicuous by my absence lately, I wander in from time to time but I never seem to be there when many other people are, so I wander out again. Plus, of course, I can be here when I'm at work which is handy.

How's you? Found your feet yet? Have you found your Doctor yet?!?

My Doctor, with a capital letter? Sadly not, still less my Leela.

Otherwise, I'm okay. Finding ones feet around here is not enough - one needs to find one's wheels, and I discovered that the driving conviction I got a couple of years back is actually not as big an insurance burden as I'd feared (seems it was my London postcode that was the problem), so hopefully I will be properly mobile again soon. This is important, as I've finally found a pub I like (and quite a few I don't). Masterchef Mat was in there serving canap├ęs last time I visited, which is a bit cool, and it has a piano too.

How about you? What is rocking?

Same old, same old really. I've spent all my money already, keep praying for snow so I don't have to go to work and have avoided killing anybody for another day!
Just telling myself I really must go to sleep soon but decided to pop in to see if you'd been about today! Hello.
Just reading a bad book and having a ciggie before turning in for the night.
Did you get much snow? Unfortunately it wasn't enough to strand me this time around!
Hey, Dexter was on Jonathon Ross. He's soo normal! Apart from the whole 'marrying his sister' thang.

Hello. I am also reading a book and smoking. Mine is Evelyn Waugh's 'A Handful of Dust'. It's pretty bleak - I should have known. Very pretty paperback edition though, from a shop called "Wild and Homeless Books".

We had quite a lot of snow, it caused a power outtage and everything. I was in London at the time, coming along the A303 it was really odd - there was a distinct border where there was heavy snow on one side and absolutely nothing on the other. There was significantly more that last time, it looks like. Somebody snowploughed the two big hills, though, so the village wasn't cut off. Yawn.

Dexter would *appear* normal, of course, all the most disturbed sociopaths do. It's Jonathan Ross I worry about.

I'm going clothes shopping today to spend my birthday money. Might get some absurdly skinny jeans, but I probably won't. I wish there was a TK Maxx in Yeovil: just the place for a chav jumble sale.

I wonder if I should start getting drunk secretly and early today...

Did you? Was it fun?

I'm off sick. Barely left my bed Saturday, didn't progress much from the horizontal yesterday.
Had to get up early enough to phone in sick today, I feel I may be spending most of today on the sofa!
On the plus side I have the E-space trilogy on dvd, on the minus side Adric's acting aint making my headache feel any better.

Yucketty. I hope you feel better soon. Any idea what it is?

It's quite astonishing that, according to the BBC, Matthew Waterhouse was chosen by JNT and his team to play Adric because he was the best of all those who auditioned - the others must have been really damned awful!!

We had a family party on Saturday, my brother was here with new and annoyingly fit girlfriend. My Dad is rubbish at making drinks and made me a Gin & Tonic which was far too strong (this is not good for people with a history of depression, and I had to shut myself away for a couple of hours in case I burst into tears for no reason). Weird. I rather wish I'd stayed in bed the whole weekend too.

Scary, innit? Still, the general standard of acting overall on some of these is shocking bad. As is that mans crown, it's made of plastic.
Um, why didn't you just tip out half and top it up with tonic when nobody was looking?


Eloisa, my dear

Abrazo **LT** *LBFC* *CLASS*

I did tip it away and top it up, after I'd taken a couple of sips to work out what was wrong with it. I think the damage was done, though. It's very odd how it works, nothing happens until some hours later. I ought to avoid G&T altogether, but I do love it so...

I have to admit, I don't think Who has got any better with regards to the quality of the actors - although having said that, it's unlikely to ever be worse than Bonnie Langford in 'Paradise Towers'...

That was scary!

I've left you a present in the other place. Go have a look then tell me how fablous I am!

Abrazo **LT** *LBFC* *CLASS*

Extremely fabulous, though I do think Leela might have figured out how to sculpt her figure effectively after her time in Victorian London, instead of (what looks like)wearing her breasts upside-down... smiley - winkeye

Picky, picky, picky. Surely a breast is a breast, upside down or not!

I'm going to have another go at getting outlook on my laptop now, wish me luck.

Outlook, eh? Good luck indeed - did you have problems with installing it before?

Well, I don't want to pay for it of course! I'm sure there was a disc once.

Then you'll be wanting Outlook Express. See PM on the other side regarding this...

I've got it on the main computer, might not bother. I am very lazy.

Plus, I've just found the special features on this dvd. History of vampire stories, narrated by Nick Briggs!

That Mr Briggs is a busy boy. Good job there is such a lot of room on the Dr Who bandwagon, there are a hell of a lot of passengers...

How was your trick cyclist?

I have sorted out my outlook, synced my contacts and installed mobile security on my phone.
Now I just need to walk the dog, tidy my room, do some washing and make fishcakes.
No worries!

I haven't seen the actual psychiatrist yet, just a senior member of the consultancy team - I probably won't, as they're fairly sure I don't have any serious problems, just a few inherent complexes. Doesn't feel like we're making much progress at the moment. I'm seeing my GP today as well, she will probably have something to say about it to.

Mmmm, fishcakes. I like those, especially since I invented a nice recipe for thick-cut lemon and black pepper chips. Are you feeling well enough to get all those things done now? I'm sure if I had an excuse to be tucked up on the sofa, that's where I'd stay!! smiley - smiley

Well, I'm back at work and I wish I hadn't bothered! Still feel vile but I didn't want to leave them short staffed during a big audit. So I came in, after being off two days, manager's already snapped at me twice.
Think I'm going home again!
