Chicago - cell block tango

New CDs

Well, I got my £7 back. Unfortunately Zavvi didn't have any spare jewel cases to replace the broken one... What kind of self-respecting music store doesn't have spare CD cases? Anyway, I replaced it with the case off Paul's new CD, as the back insert of his was just plan yellow...

I left work at 3.30 yesterday, mostly because my back was hurting again - I don't think I slept very well on Sunday night because my stomach was playing up, which might account for it. Luckily said stomach seems to be settling. At least leaving early gave me a chance to get to Boots (for more co-codamol; I've lost the ones from the hospital in our black hole of a flat) and Zavvi when there were no crowds...

Once home I reset the heating controls to come on at 4.15 instead of 5.00, as I am frequently home before the house warms up, and then sat down to listen to the new CDs.

Other than that, I played a lot of Picross on the Gameboy (I got a craving for it and don't have the DS version yet...), cooked a pork-based bolognese type thing for tea, and watched The Others on BBC2. I've seen that film about five times now and I still don't completely know Collapse ). The film never really makes it explicitly clear; Kidman's character does confirm it, but she's not really of sound mind at that point... I even went to the usually-reliable IMDB, but there was as much speculation there as ever... Possibly I should watch the DVD copy I've had for years to see if there's any revealing featurettes...

I've also nearly finished reading Russell Brand's My Booky Wook; there's something quite addictive about it. He's a human car crash, really.

First choir rehearsal of the season tonight, so I'm at work until 6.00 again. I stayed in bed until 8.00 this morning because I was knackered, and was only 15 minutes late for work anyway... Although 'late' is relative when you have flexitime.

At least the work is fairly fluid today...

Layout.

Temporary new layout (it's called "Fleur") until I make a new one which actually fits my monitor layout. It's at least more work-safe than the bright pink slash-fest of the Priscilla one, though I have a horrible suspicion it will completely fail to load at home.

The subtitle (Miniature Disasters) is a KT Tunstall song, and the comment links (Stick By Your Side and Only # Fool/s) are from Cerys Matthews's "Only A Fool". Just because I always wanted to use the former for something and the latter is one of my favourite songs.
