Ohhh, the vileness of humidity! At least it isn't too sunny, and there was a nice breeze when I went to the park earlier.
Hope everyone has escaped the Friday the 13th full moon unscathed.
In other news, have I mentioned that Irn Bru lollies are really quite nice?
Looks like a couple of long months of nothing decent on TV unless you're into bloody football, tennis, etc. I've been driven back into the arms of BIG BROTHER. It seems sightly improved, actually. The housemates are mostly a bit more 'aspirational' than usual, although fairly obnoxious; more like APPRENTICE contestants than the usual BB crowd, and many of them have unusually 'respectable' jobs...although there is at at least one glamour model, and most of the women have that painted-poppet wannabe celeb look.

Ohh, it's vile today. Mega-humidity. I feel like a giant sponge, and I'm so sneezy. Fap.
A woman behind me on the bus was going on about a friend of hers who owns a Harley, and has Dylan Thomas tattooed on his arm. She thinks he's immature.
Still enjoying the weirdness of HANNIBAL. The engagingly strange-looking Mads Mikellson is great casting.
Dreamed about bloody David Tennant again. This time, we met up in some sort of old folks' holiday camp and fell into immediate mad lust! xD  ( I really don't fancy David Tennant a bit. I find this is true of most people I get frisky with in dreams. I think it's quite common. Odd, though-)

Exercised in the drizzle,  then just went back indoors for the rest of the day. It was gloomy until late afternoon, and there was no point in trying to get in to the West End with the bloody Queen's Speech adding to the snarls and diversions.
Latest Box Set: HANNIBAL series one, which I really like so far.

R Next Door went down with me in the one working lift, and actually ventured a comment...That the other lift broke because of all the fat people crowding in, all the time. "If just one thin person got into  them every time, zese lifts would never break down." Dare I hope she's starting to recover?

Just exercised (got caught in a shower-) and went to ASDA. Then I just faffed about and watched GRAVITY. Wasn't that supposed to be all profound and moving and stuff? I've seen worse, of course, but it was still pretty plastic. I also watched a bit more of VIKINGS, series one, which is growing on me a bit.
If anyone fancies the ENO BENVENUTO CELLINI I posted about yesterday, apparently it's going to be screened 'in selected cinemas', for those who can't get to London/ can't get tickets/can't afford what tickets there are. It's well worth seeing, as I said; lively spectacle, bouncy Berlioz, great singing.

Manky morning, but luckily I managed to exercise between showers. R Next Door was lurking at a distance, and I saw her walk away from one of the other dogwalkers, who was obviously trying to chat, leaving him goldfishing in bafflement.. She did return my hello, but when I was obviously nearly done, she stumped off and definitely didn't want to walk back to the flats with me.
*Sigh* Miss mah frienemy,
It seems EASTENDERS' Shirley is really Mick's mother not his sister. This is pretty common in Walford, going on past revelations. I didn't realise this until I saw it on a Soap Magazine cover. Last week after falling out (again) with son Dean, and the revelation that she had tried to drown lil' Mick, Shirley went on one of her benders, and was picked up lying in the street wrapped around a vodka bottle, by Phil( who is getting really soft these days.) The cliffhanger was a closeup of Phil's boggling face as Shirley threw herself into Mick's arms after wailing on about her 'little boy' (Dean, I thought-) I hadn't picked up on it, and wondered what Phil was gaping at. I'm getting slow in my dotage.

Enjoyed last night's DUCHESS OF MALFI broadcast on BBC4, and the Sam Wanamaker is a beautiful little auditorium. Don't know how Health and Safety copes with the authentic candlelight, but it's very pretty.
Very good Bosola from Sean Gilder. What a great, meaty part that is.
I'm not even going to say much about the dismal EU Election results. We're Doomed, and yam disgustipated at the utter stupidity of it all.
Must try to have a bit of a 'fast' day. My current 'kammerspeck' feeding frenzy has just got to stop before I make my sad situation even worse by gaining back deathfat.


The latest X-MEN is showing at the Picture House, and I may take advantage of the jolly Silver Screen card to see it in 3D with free bevvy and bikkies thrown in, later in the week. I've never been into the franchise much, and never even read the comics regularly, but I've always had a lot of time for Magneto, and I fancy seeing more 3D spectacle

I got a swell review of RISEN over at My Ethereality, by Raydeen! Thank you, Ray! Great commentary to herald the book's launch. Today I got more insights from a lovely review by Lee Ann Farruga at Steampunk Canada (I'm on the front page!). Lee Ann's review is here.

It's nice to read what qualities about the story work for readers. Also, a good way for me to keep an eye on those qualities that merit maintaining. And of course, it's very nice to know that like with Charm School I am doing 'different' things with women that are really not different at all, just neglected. It's how it goes. :)
