As some of you may know, I’ve kinda got into a lunchtime routine at home now of watching Neighbours, Doctors (out of the corner of my eye), and Diagnosis Murder. Good old Dick Van Dyke! DM is like the highlight of my day (if I don’t count Ellie), but yesterday I didn’t get to see most of it. Just as it was starting Esther rang me to get me to pass on a message to Phil because she was running out of credit, then over the next couple of hours my boss kept ringing me with questions and problems, each call lasting 1-10 minutes, separated by 5-15 minutes. So what I saw of DM wasn’t really enough to understand the plot at all. I felt quite cheated.
I went to the theatre again with Ellie tonight, to see a play called “No Exit”, which was about hell. Interestingly they described hell more as a psychological torment than a physical one, which actually lines up more accurately with the Bible’s version of hell anyway, from what I can tell. Very interesting. I’m also feeling quite cultured just of late, having been to the theatre three times this term to see fairly intellectual and arty plays. Oh, and The Woman In White a few weeks ago too. Also very good.
This morning I’ve been trying to import all my old blog posts into WordPress using a script that Phill wrote. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get it working yet, but I’ve sent him an e-mail and hopefully we’ll be able to get it all sorted soon! I’m going into town later with Ellie to go shopping – we’ve got a Murder Mystery evening next weekend, so we’re gonna tour the charity shops looking for costumes. I’m playing the part of a French poet and artist, so I’ll have to brush up my French accent… and figure out what I’m supposed to believe in, as my character is an anti-fascist… I never did understand politics!
