Here Is The News

And just for Dave, an update on recent events in Cornwall. It appears to have been an exceptionally uneventful two weeks, but nonetheless, here are some 'highlights' I've dredged up:
  • I bought a food processor with lots of shiney attachments (watch this space for breaking news once I actually make something with it)
  • I watched the X Factor for the first time ever. (And then the Xtra Factor, and then the next episode and the next...Watching one may have been a mistake. And is it wrong to fancy Simon Cowell?)
  • I had a dream about a unicorn (how twee).
  • I had a dream about Kinky Friedman (singer, novelist, currently running for Governor of Texas, under the slogan "Why the hell not?")
  • I had a dream about David McCallum (again, heh).
  • I bought the three latest Dr Who books last weekend, and am now half way through the third one.
  • It was really really foggy yesterday.
  • Trains to and from work to be replaced by buses for the next two weeks ARGHNOYOUBASTARDSNOTAGAIN.
  • I still have a job, despite further swathes of staff being culled by roving bands of mercenaries.
  • Saw a trailer for Torchwood! At last! Yessssssss!
Er, that's about as exciting as it gets I'm afraid. But the next week or so will involve a beer festival and a gin factory, so things will be looking up. Out of a gutter, possibly.

Thank you. Also saw a trailer for Torchwood. It's not on one of the 4 terrestrial channels, which are all that I can get here. Please tape and send to me.

Also food parcels, once the processor is used.

Thank you once again.

have just made some rather wonderful roasted butternut squash and red pepper soup. Would gladly send some, but I fear the envelope might get rather soggy...

it's very wrong to fancy simon cowell - fear you may be suffering stockholm syndrome. dreaming about david mccallum is, however, most desirable. where can i get me some of that?

Just seen Torchwood is repeated on BBC2 later in the week, so don't worry about taping it for me.

Not that you were going to.

Have just realsied that Torchwood is an anagram of Doctor Who. Why does no-one tell me these things?

we didn't want to insult your intelligence by suggesting that you might not have realised...(ok, so I read it in the Radio Times...)
