Ah, OK. Still not a clue who she is.


OK, try another way - when watching the Olympics opening ceremony and that awful woman singing Abide with Me atrociously out of tune, going both sharp and flat in the same phrase, did you not think then 'I don't know who that is'? This is her.


Fix'd.

Mind, I never watched the Olympics opening ceremony. Or any of the Olympics.

Yep. We've had a high-pitched whistle intermittently on one line for months. But because it never happens when the engineers run tests, there's 'nothing they can do, because the lines seem fine'. Oh, what, I'm lying to you? For shits and giggles?

Just had my first bit of hot food for over 24 hours.

And now the waiting game begins...

I can only assume none of my neighbours were answering their doors earlier, as Amazon sent me a text this morning asking if I was happy to have my parcel delivered to my neighbour if I wasn't in (I wasn't), but when I got home I found a "You were out" card. I can't pick it up until Saturday now, and I was hoping for a lie in.

That's slightly peeving

My new phone has to be delivered to my home address, so a) I have to wait until Saturday to get it, and b) I have to get up early on Saturday to wait for a phone that I almost guarantee won't be delivered until 11.57am. If I sleep through, guarantee they'll come at 8.02am and I'll miss it.

Now we play the waiting game to see whether my current phone's tendency to say "internal memory full" eventually ends with it saying "errrrrrrrrrr" and dying completely before Saturday. /tense

(I'm getting a Nexus 4, since you asked.)

If it makes you feel any better, Postman Pats and delivery folk seem to be so lazy these days that they just stick those fucking cards through the door without even ringing the bell to see if you're in first. We've had dozens recently, and I'm mostly housebound at the moment, so it's not as if I'm out and missing them.

On an unrelated note, my next door neighbour just popped through with a bunch of dvds from her son for me. I'd seen them all except one - I actually felt guilty going through them all saying, 'um, seen, got it, seen, seen, got it', she'd even taken through The Wire. I've actually got shitloads of stuff to watch here already since I bought a load before I went into the hospital, and loads of my dvds from my flat are here. She asked me if I'd seen Mad Men, and I haven't, so she's going to take that through. Which is really lovely of her, but I've never really fancied watching it, and I was getting so excited because I was just going to wrap up Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Generation Kill, and I was going to rewatch BSG!

First world problems.

I caught our postie putting one through my letterbox once. I was like, hey man I'm right here, you didn't even ring the bell. He told me that the package was too big for him to bring, so he never had it. It was a single DVD (not even a box set) from Amazon.

Yeah, that happened to me once. The postie didn't even knock the door, he just put the card through the letterbox but he didn't realise that I was standing in the vestibule watching him do this. I opened the door and questioned him on it and he said he couldn't be arsed carrying the package (again, a dvd) round the street with him. My house is in the low numbers and was one of the first he went to! Anyway, after he finished with my street, I walked to his van and got the package of him then. I may add that this was not my usual postie, I think he was covering for the dude who usually delivers mail round my way.

Those examples sound annoying If this was Royal Mail I could have at least picked it up this evening at the depot, as it's open until 8pm & they always take the post back there the same day if they've "missed" me, but annoyingly it was interlink express. I can't pick it up tomorrow as I finish work at 5 and won't get back to my flat unti 6, which is when their depot closes.

Chances are I'll probably wake up early on Saturday anyway, but I still don't really want to have to leave the house around 9am on a weekend.

Besides, I've got the Oscars to stay up for on Sunday, I need to prepare my sleep schedule so I can stay awake for it

This might sound really lame but the Empire Oscars chatroom is genuinely one of the highlights of my year I usually do it simultaneously with a mate on facebook as well though.

Unrelated, but do some animals just naturally look happier than others?

Take this seal for instance:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov_QnDPVcz4

As soon as he appears I instantly imagine Leslie Phillips' voice saying "Hello "

They've just opened a Krispey Kreme in Newcastle and I keep meaning to go in but the decor gives me a headache.
Here Matty, speaking of food, you been into Zapatista, 'Newcastle's First Burrito Bar!' yet (it's on Ridley Place, just opposite where Volume Records used to be)? I went for the first time yesterday and I've already decided I'm going again today. And tomorrow. And sunday. Mmmmmm...

I take you're talking about the mass excitement about the one opened at Hermiston Gate?

No idea why people are risking getting ran over for them but I'm going to take a trip over after work today to sample a dozen or so.
