Today I have been silently hated by the entire office for not buying cakes. It took me until about an hour ago to realise what was going on as it turns out the office manager had told everyone it was my birthday (having gotten her Junes and Julys muddled) and no biscuits had been put out because she assumed I'd be supplying cakes and pastries for all. I'm not in the business of buying un-birthday cakes.
I have spent the last three days, when not at work or sleeping, watching the fantastic show QI. a show that has been on for years and yet nobody thought to tell me it existed. I have watched both the first two series now and in only one was I not reduced to tears from laughing. It's also surprisingly educational for such a funny show. I'd go as far as saying it is the best thing I have watched in years.
In contrast that last episode(s) of Doctor Who was a huge pile of cack and unless all the time lords are hiding around England having used that chameleon device dooberry to alter themselves into humans (or politicians) whoever wrote it and allowed it to be aired should be shot in both knees and elbows and left to fend for themselves in Derby. It easily beats the last worst episode (something to do with a blonde guy, possibly named Elton, trying to investigate the doctor - which narrowly beat the Sylvestor McCoy cat people serial) by being twice as long. It possibly even rivals "11.59" (ST:VOY) as being the worst episode of any television series in history although I still had some will to live by the end of Doctor Who it so maybe it wasn't quite that bad and probably just gets to hold 2nd place.
"11.59" was what von Gerhardt(?), as rephrased by Blackadder, meant by a fate worse than a fate worse than death in the episode Private Plane - he could also have been referring to The Big Lebowski.
In fact, not to go on at all, that whole episode could have been sorted in about 5 minutes if he'd just been bothered to deal with them in the first place rather than allowing all those innocent people to be killed and potentially causing the deaths and suffering of an enormous number of people who would otherwise have had their lives made easier by some contribution those, now dead, people could have made. I'll stop now before I get too worked up. :)
Tomorrow I am having a lie-in as I'll be working to about 7pm. This is due to a telephone system upgrade that i'm assured should take 5-10 minutes. I have thus assigned 45 minutes to its completion.
Shopping is arriving tonight - I really don't know how I ever fitted shopping in befoe I had it delivered every third week. I hated supermarket shopping with a passion - I thank the internet and all those who created her profusely for the ability not to have to visit Sainsburys ever again.
