Things I like today

1. St John's Wort. Marvleeous. It seems for the moment to be keeping me on the sane and narrow. No more blues!
2. Rugby training. Last night. Hard but fair. Good for the pent up frustration, flattening a fat bloke is (grammar? I seem to have segued into Yoda).
3. The World of Yaxlich. Very funny. Read the one from a couple of days ago when he's drunk at one in the morning. "Yaxlich relieves himself. Yaxlich goes to the bathroom. Yaxlish realises he is too late."
4. Some CDs I haven't played for ages but have found again. Like Eels. And Gorillaz.
5. The piano. Just generally. Haven't played it much lately, but I like that I could if I wanted to.
6. Watching re-runs of Lovejoy on ITV3 with my lunch. I always wanted to be Lovejoy. Hmmm. Ian McShane. Whatever happened to him? His career probably didn't go anywhere after that. A bit like Mark Hamill after Star Wars. It (Lovejoy, not Star Wars) had a young Irish actor called
James Nesbitt on it yesterday. Never saw him again, either, which is a shame because he was quite good.
7. Not caring about stuff. Loudly, often. Today's stuff I'm liking not caring about include David Beckham saying he's going to retire in two years (don't care), Coronation Street and come to that all soaps (don't care), David Hasselhof's new single's success, or not (don't care), celebrity size 00 nonsense (don't care - unless my daughter starts being influenced by it, in which case I do care, so does that mean I care now? Does potentially caring count? My list, my rules, so fuck it - not defining my terms (don't care)).
8. The Blogosphere.
9. Lists. Especially largely meaningless ones.
10. Not having to finish up on a nice round number - I can't think of anything else so I'll just stop at nine. What? Oh. Bugger.


  • James Nesbitt has done loads of stuff!!

  • good to have you back BTW!!

  • I,TLV: Oh dear, I have a problem now. I can't decide whether you are ironically ignoring my irony (because, duh, Ian McShane has done billions of things since too, including Sexy Beast, loads of American stuff including Dallas and Deadwood, ths stage version of Witches of Eastwick, and about every third ad voice-over on telly), or whether you are blissfully ignorant (in a nice way). And it's nice to be back, btw.

    For the record, Cold Feet and Murphy's Law were two of my fave progs. It was just interesting to see Jimmy N as a young man (1993) in Lovejoy.

    Lovejoy's had loads of famous people in it: Joanna Lumley, Michael Elphick, Linda Gray, James Nesbitt to name a few. I still love it and will be tuning in again today.

  • surely irony is meant to be ignored. . .

    (or is that sarcasm?)

    and yes, I am blissfully ignorant (of many things)

    and hope to remain so for the long term

    Jimmy Nail!! I have CDs by him (how sad is that? even sadder: I listen to them from time to time)

    don't watch telly much, especially not at munchtime - oops typo - lunchtime so cannot really add to that debate

    but I did see a Simpsons espidode the other day with Mark Hamill in it (dressed as Luke S, and Luke was acting in a musical that might have been Guys and Dolls)

  • Lovejoy had Warren Mitchell in today.

  • don't think I've got any CDs of his
