Hiding Behind the Sofa  
This morning I have been mostly writing, mostly. It's shockingly bad writing but at least it's something. I was worried that my very boring job was rotting my already significantly-rotted-by-TV-and-e-numbers mind, so it's nice to give my right brain a bit of an exercise. I've also been out and met cybersydfor lunch, and gone to the library and taken some books out on Italian cooking. 

I feel like I've actually done something this morning. Although, just to restore the slacking off on Saturday balance I've also been watching 'The Daemons' (a Pertwee-era 'Doctor Who' episode) on YouTube. I remember watching it when I was still at school and the BBC ran repeats of cult sixties and seventies TV (along with ''The Man From Uncle', 'The Champions', 'Randall and Hopkirk' and even a little 'Sapphire and Steel'). The most abiding memory I have of it is not the show itself, not UNIT being zapped by creepy gargoyles, it's of being absolutely TERRIFIED. It's mercifully not as scary this time round but it's much wittier than I remember. I luff YouTube, I do.

The Italian food is for a murder mystery themed dinner. I got the game from my mum this Christmas. It looks cheesy but fun, even if I have ended up having to go as a man. There are costume suggestions and everything. I'm depressingly excited aout the whole thing.

Anyway, I'm off to write a bit more, to watch more of 'The Daemons' and to have a brew or nine. I'm also going to see 'The Other Boleyn Girl' with Hayley tonight. Yay for Eric Bana! I'll just try to not think about Henry's gout and STDs in later life, and the fact he was so bloated by the end that his guts exploded after he died. That's...well, that's just less sexy. And was always left out of my History lessons at school.

Not my history lessons. I'm all about the gout and bloating:)

Hee hee! Aw, I wish you had been my history teacher! The sordid, gross bits are always the most fun parts. :)
