I watched Graham Norton last night for the first time in absolutely ages. I used to love So Graham Norton when it was on Channel 4, and the BBC show is almost as good (though seems to have lost the level of smuttiness that made SGN that little bit more daring). Last night his guests were Alan Carr and Glenn Close, possibly the strangest combination ever...

Glenn Close is in danger of being fangirled something awful. She's utterly mad, but in the kind of way that you just wouldn't notice...

She can do frighteningly accurate baby impressions which have to be heard to be believed, and also taught Graham the intricacies of Shoe Golf, resulting in her winning a round of it by launching her own shoes (insoles and all - the glamour of Hollywood!) across the studio. So yeah. That was entertaining.

Otherwise, it was the usual surreal fare of The Mighty Boosh, which means a double helping of Noel Fielding as he's replaced Bill Bailey on Buzzcocks for a couple of weeks...

I had another really bizarre dream last night but now cannot remember any of it in the slightest...

PC News

I did a system restore to 1 October the other day which somehow seems to have helped a bit... it started first time yesterday and only took three restarts to get going on Wednesday, with Windows loading after each of them but the mouse freezing after a few minutes. Given that until this point it's been taking anywhere between 6 and 10 restarts / turning off-and-on agains to get it running properly, this is progress. If it does go wrong again, though, unfortunately the warranty ran out yesterday...

The other stupid thing its been doing is thinking its attached to a proper network and every four weeks or so pestering me to change a non-existent password. I went into the adminstration section to tell it there was only one user, but it still seems to think there's a network it has to sign into. And Norton keeps telling me I need administrator privileges, even though I am the administrator... I might just reinstall Norton...

In any case, we might be able to get a free, higher-spec PC off one of Paul's colleagues, which will probably result in there being two redundant PCs in the loft. Although I guess if we ever move into a house we can have a computer on both floors...

I don't think I have anything else to talk about...

Oh, if anyone wants to get me a Christmas present and is stuck for ideas, store vouchers would be brilliant. For clothes, preferably, as I already have £30 to spent on music in HMV and Virgin... so, y'know, Debenhams, House of Fraser or M&S. Failing that, there's an Amazon wishlist somewhere. :P

PS: I've only just noticed that LJ comment editing is back, at long last. That only took them, what, five years?
