"the last ever episode of the old Dr Who. My career highlight is a line I had to say to Kate O’Mara, which was '30 seconds to computer achieving full power status mistress.' It's not considered the greatest part of the [Dr Who] canon, but I was, briefly, a pin up in a gay Dr Who fanzine, which I thought was quite close to the pinnacle of my career." - Samuel West, The Official London Theatre Guide

Oh Sam, don't ever change.

I seem to be being stalked by The Stranglers this week. First they were playing over the radio in the cafe last Fri when the Peanut Gallery stopped by on the way to the grower's market. Then they showed up digging in the trenches on Time Team. I know, wtf? But there they were. Boggle. It was on a Roman site outside Bath, near that white horse that's on the hill on the road down to Warminster. I've no idea why, but I was bemused.

TUESDAY: I blew up the kettle. That's what I get for settling myself in the sun and gloating that I was staying home so I could have real hot water bottles (health and safety laws disallow hot water at work so I must suffer luke warm bottles) and I reached over to switch on said kettle and ZZZOTT! One dead kettle. I guess them roaches finally gnawed their way through the wires, not that the smoke and flames seemed to inconvenience the bastards in the slightest.

Then I discovered that my old faithful saucepan with the pouring lip had been chucked out. Welcome to another day in my life.

This has not been a good week. I had such high hopes, but alas, they've all been crushed underfoot and nothing has gone to plan and I seem to be under the most dreadful jinx - I can't even walk into my room without sending all my dvds flying.

Nothing much happening of great import except a visit from the plumber (the trees had got into the pipes again). This meant making sure all the access points were accessible, but instead of being allowed to leave on time as agreed I had to stay back late for some interdepartmental tomfoolery.

Which meant I had to shift pot plants and tiles and the like in the dark. By torch light. In heavy sleet. Oh yes, it was sleet all right. It started to spit sleet while I was walking down to the station with a Scots friend who confirmed my sleety suspiscions (it's the snow they've been having everywhere else). Less than fun.

Howdy. As I now have to swipe in and out whenever I want to go to the loo, if they're logging loo trips then today is their lucky day because accidentally took a non drowsy instead of dowsy anti-hist last night (or in my case a drwosy as they keep me wide awake and the non drowsies have me doing face plants where I stand) so I had no sleep at all last night and if I don't keep the caffeine coming I'll pass out on my keyboard.

You know it's a Monday when the bus driver turns around and asks us where we're meant to be going, exactly. [head in hands].

Actual bus driver or some mental patient just taking the bus out for a spin? To be honest, I'd never be able to tell.

My weekend wasn't much of an improvement on that. It wasn't like I didn't know better: don't drive, don't operate heavy machinery, don't go anywhere near a computer and don't attempt any housework, like, say, the washing.

Last night I dreamt we were overrun with Nimons, though they weren't half as much trouble as those people down the street, but everyone was asking me how to get rid of them and I had no idea because I'd given up watching Who at that stage. Even in my dreams I'm complete rubbish and useless.

Anyhoo, I supposed you heard my shrill shriek on Sunday. Yes, it was a girlie scream. Having to go out and finish the watering at dusk (and dusk lasts 30 seconds here so it was night by the time I got out the door), I figured how big could the spiders be? Oh, that big. And fie on you know who not coming to my rescue, pinned down as I was by the giant spider. The giant angry spider (trying to hose/shoo him off the wall just made him fiesty). Wibble.

The good news is that the disk drive ain't broke, it was just two batches of dud disks. Though fie on the two batches cause they ain't cheap.

Anyhoo, Monday again, sunburnt and sleep deprived as usual. Sleep deprived from the storm of short but violent duration last night, though not as interesting as the storm that left thick packs of ice still lying about the place when I got home, not to mention leaves torn off and plastered everywhere and stuff blown down and blown over, though I'm happy to lose just a few pots, considering the obvious maelstrom.

Monday: Um, no scans this week. I had other stuff to do and it was hot. Plus I'm knackered. Running around like a blue arsed fly. Made myself sick on Sunday, but that's what I get for weeding in 38C heat after having yoghurt and berries for lunch.

Today I am weilding the holepunch. You know, I wasted my twenties going to uni at night just so I'd never have to spend all day holepunching again, but sans proper job, it's my "special project" of the week. They didn't even sugar coat it with "as you've got records management experience..." Nope, it was just "holepunch, bitch". So I holepunch (therefore I am?).

Hey there, sports fans. I think I'll skip the usual ruminations and just give y'all a quick recap since it's been a while since I've had any time to actually write an entry (even now I'm multi-tasking with stuff downloading, disks burning and cuppa cooling - Sam would be proud).

My hands are purple. I look like I've been robbing banks. But more on that later (actually, given the fact that I've yet to write this blog entry and I've opened it up n times since Sunday, I'll just say briefly it was a horrible laundry accident and my mojo skirt is completely fubar).

Meanwhile, I've discovered where I've been going wrong with LOM. Waiting until I was in a good mood to watch it was all wrong. Watching it when I was quite happy to show several people the business end of a hammer (to recap, doing the work of four people and trying to get everything done by next Monday) was the way to do it. So on Monday night I settled down to watch episodes 5-7 before I get any more spoilt than I already have been. And I really, really enjoyed it.

Hey there. The hormonal haze is lifting (slowly) and I'm starting to get a bit more organised again, well, as organised as I ever get, anyhoo (apologies to all those folks who end up buried at the bottom of the inbox). Still, I've complained to Amazon about the dvd box sets with tyre tracks over the top of them and I made a few comfirmational calls last night, despite the large spider obviously trained to jealously guard the phone against late night international calls. He just would not piss off, not even when chased by the fly swatter.

Must get a better fly swatter, that one has no swish, and I know intimately what a proper fly swatter can do - my mother must have broken over a dozen on me so far.

Anyhoo, I have a shiny new fandom. Yes, I watched Primeval again last night (well, in my defence I was unwell and unfit for any other duty). I love it to bits. It's kinda silly but it has a great deal of charm and lots of pretty and some genuinely great tv moments.

"Were it not for us being such bad coppers, in 20 years time all those cold case shows like Waking The Dead wouldnt have cases to re-open!" - Dead Ringers LOM sketch.

Well, I've often thought that. I keep waiting for the Waking the Dead crew to open up one of Gene's old cases. Or the New Tricks lot. :)

Meanwhile, I was supposed to be reading my new(ish) book, but I ended up watching the clouds as we mounted the old Anzac bridge. What clouds. Piled high in boiling mountains up into a pale blue sly, darkly grey and hellish orange at the bottom but lit all fluffly white and pinky golden at the very top as dawn had just, that second, started to break. Full on Hollywood clouds. Constable would have creamed himself.

You know you've walked a bit when you start seeing road signs for Wollongong. Yeah, I walked to the Enmore from work because I didn't know which bus to catch because I always used to walk it and I told myself to walk it again, you lardy bitch. So I did.

There were only three things that I needed to consider:
a) the last time I worked in the city it was down by Central which was halfway there
b) that was a while ago now
c) and I used to wear Docs.

Apologies for the late running BNW again. What can I say? My path is strewn with cowpats from the devil's own satantic herd, etc, etc.

Meant to post it Friday but was kept back after school again (and this after being screamed at for all the unpaid overtime I clocked up - like it's my fault I don't get the urgent stuff until after 5pm). So I missed nearly everything bar Spooks. Mmmm...Adam. I forgot to mention that last week I was bemused to see the action seemed to revolve around a station coffee shop I knew intimately - grin.
