I'm enjoying the hell out of Borgen, but I do struggle with the plausibility that any politician, let alone Prime Minister, would be as hot as Birgitte Nyborg.

I've started catching up with Series 2 after missing a ton of episodes - every time the blackguard Phillip is on screen I keep thinking "What are you doing, you fool! She's amazing!". The crossing over with Forbrydelsen actors is getting crazy now - the Prime Minister from Series 3 of that show showing up and having a meeting with Nyborg?!?

She could run on a platform of drowning kittens in a bath, and I'd still vote for her.

My wee mum is awesome.

Just had a very long walk today, and because my body is still recovering from my op, I have to rest for ages afterwards. So I'm sitting in the sitting room with my feet up and she's pottering about in the kitchen and she just came through and asked if I'd like a drink and a cookie.

Hell yes I would mum!

They called it Cat.

One of the girls here has a cat Oscar who she has had for years. Then a stray started visiting and decided to stay so they called it spare cat. I love it when she talks about Oscar and spare cat

She has to write a children's book about them. "Oscar and Spare Cat," a story about abandonment issues and furballs.

Jesus wept, I'm on a rollercoaster of emotions this evening.

I'd had such a lovely calming day today after going on a verrrry long walk, and now I'm all over the place. The phonecall to my pal this evening has really agitated me, and now I just received a text from my old manager who'd heard the recent news about my health and was really nice to me saying if she could do anything just to ask and basically just gave me her support.

This is the same manager who made my life a hell when I worked for her. She made me ill, anxious, cry, lose weight from not eating etc. I was a shell by the time I left her work. She was the reason I left my old work!

We all knew she was very Jekyll and Hyde though, when it came to personal matters and non-work related things she was always very supportive and nice. But within work she was awful.

Her text has elicited very mixed emotions.



SOMEBODY CALM ME DOWN.

Text her back and tell her to fuck off because she was a total bitch when you worked for her. That'll make you feel better.

Anyone any experience with sound bars? What the 'virtual surround sound' like?

Thinking of getting rid of my current system, mostly cause I can't be arsed with all the wires, and getting a Philips CSS2123/05.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

First night out tonight since I finished my exams earlier this week and I am appropriately tipsy. Will probably regret it in the morning but oh well, you win some you lose some. And ting. I've lost track now. Good night.

I have a Samsung thing-a-majig soundbar that, like most Samsung products, looks gorgeous (I can't stand on that side of the room or I get self-conscious) but the performance is sometimes a bit off. The main reason is that it sometimes drops dialogue levels when there's a lot of music/background noise in the film - this only happens on 'cinema' mode though and I am sure there's a way to adjust it but I would feel hypocritical pointing out its flaws when it looks so much better than me. To be honest, that issue aside, I love it; it elevates anything we watch to a real cinematic experience, it barely takes up any space and though its not perfect surround sound, it does a very good job replicating it. Also, did I mention it looks like the Scarlett Johansen of sound equipment?

Do you spend your time staring at its connectors rather than the television?

Only when I don't think it's looking. To be fair the way it wears its connectors hardly screams 'respect me'.

I just watched The Raven. I would take Cowboys and Aliens over that one any day.

I've seen the Raven and can't remember anything about it other than someone being buried under a table and him sitting in the park at the end.
