Hrm, writing, yeah, that got off to a good start, didn't it. Maybe now. I can feel good things going on.

I literally could not believe my eyes when I saw this week's Bad Science.

WTF?

Of course the comments are the real treat... there are a couple of anti-porno people on there asking why the men can't just think sexy thoughts or read erotic fiction because it is less objectifying to women. God. Because it doesn't turn them on? Yeah, sex has got no time for hypocrisy.

It's kind of funny. Half the people are having this sort of hands-off right-or-wrong discussion asking stupid rhetorical questions and the other half are people who have done IVF and are answering them. I suspect that the ones having a theoretical discussion are all about 19 years old as well.

I am in Peru. Saw a hummingbird today. Am now drinking horrible Peruvian wine and trying to combat jetlag.

There's some guy from "The Association of British Drivers" on the TV. Did you vote for him? I didn't.

Ha, he's just mentioned the Taxpayers' Alliance. That's another one.

Sherlock already looked flash and dark and slashy like Who or Torchwood, but then I found out that Stephen Moffat is one of the writers. Squee.

Yesterday, I got a referral letter from the hospital (in fact Great Ormond Street Hospital, which they shorten to GOSH, as in gosh, your admins are even worse than the ones at Homerton) which came with a questionnaire. The questionnaire, according to the letter, was to be filled out and put in the prepaid envelope. What prepaid envelope? Cue emptying of bin etc. Couldn't find it so P phoned them today to get the address.

Guess what? They don't give out prepaid envelopes anymore because it costs too much. So WHY NOT CHANGE THE SODDING LETTER? Fuck, I hate the NHS.

Go on, vote Labour.

The spending cuts are going to be horrific, whoever gets in. David and Nick are still falling over themselves to offer us many and various tax cuts. What a joke. So what, Gordon doesn't play well with the other children... he's the only one who can be trusted to do it with fairness and a heavy heart.

I think the little feckers can be glad someone feeds them. Fuck sake.

Anyone had a go at the FT cuts calculator?

My favourite is the 5.5bn you can save by cutting public sector pay for 5% for a year. A year. And then we'd get it back! I'll sign up for that. I found myself wanting do cut the amount that goes to pensioners as well. I think there should definitely be means testing. My uncle's in receipt of an old age pension and he just bought himself a new Jag.

Everyone probably hates me now. Ah well. As far as I can tell it's going to be necessary to do this one way or another or else we will end up paying scary amounts of money to refinance the debt, like Greece, and then, well, none of us will be going on holiday in Europe for a long long while...

The Greggs in Glasgow airport (yes, there is a Greggs in Glasgow airport, because we just love living up to the national stereotype) has an advert for some spicy Halloween "steak" pasty. It says "are you brave enough?" which is presumably a reference to Halloween but is actually a serious question, at least for me, because I've had food poisoning out of Greggs twice, once off a dodgy turkey mayonnaise sandwich and once off of an undercooked pasty.

Felix, the neighbour's cat, came in tonight purring and looking for food. Getting no joy, he had a go at some channa dhal that I dropped when I took out of the microwave. He tasted it, shook his head and sneezed. Twice. Awww...

Does anyone from Edinburgh remember/know how to find out the dates of Fresher's Week 1999? I met P on the Friday and that means that we are coming up for our 10th anniversary. And neither of us can remember when it actually is. We're thinking probably this weekend is near enough, but if there's another day when I could be drinking champagne...


Also, I am loving having been together for 10 years. It's such a great rhetorical device. "Good god, do you know you've been saying that for the last 10 years?" etc. Round numbers are great for exaggeration.

Bloody hell. I got bitten by a mozzie on my shin on Monday and now the bottom half of my shin is swollen and hurty, right down to the ankle.

That's it, no more gardening for me.

Moved in yay. It took 2 goes with a box van. That house in Hertford must have been a giant jigsaw puzzle for us to have had all that stuff in there.

The kitchen and bedroom are basically unpacked, the tv and broadband and everything is set up and the bed has been assembled. P keeps wanting to assemble other furniture but I think I'm done for about the next few months.

Now I'm off to enjoy my tiny commute. I don't care if there's 400 people on the carriage, how bad can it be for 10 mintes?
