Mostly a good day

I have successfully reduced my number of open tabs to 11, but I have not yet trawled my reading list for the last 3 days *sigh*.

I saw Eddie Izzard last night at the Newcastle arena and he rocked!!! The tickets were unexpected, so thanks to whichever mates of Paz' manager decided to bail. Our gain! Highlights of the evening were the jazz chicken and gazelles on elastic. I've noticed Eddie's getting rather more political these days. Significant time devoted to creationism and 'intelligent design', and several mentions of the BNP. It made for an interesting, intelligent show. It was also as funny as hell!

I currently have men drilling holes in my brickwork and stuffing the house cavities with yellow fluff. Soon we shall be fully insulated! Unfortunately, I can't go into town and meet my mate from London off the train until they're done. I'm also only half way through my to-do list for the day.

Still to do:

  • Tidy bedroom
  • Tidy desk (hah!)
  • Food shopping for weekend guests - umm...
  • Check train prices to Sheffield and London.
That last one is important. I have to go to Sheffield and I want to go to London, both before xmas. I probably can't afford to do both but, either way, I should book sooner rather than later.

OK, workmen finally done! I'm off to town to meet Andy, who I haven't seen since easter.

New fave things

I think I'm just about over my Torchwood-induced trauma. This is mostly due to my wonderful mate, Erik, who introduced me to my two new favourite things )
