To quote a line from In The Night Garden on CBeebies:

"What a great big ponk."*

WTF?! Is that allowed?

* A "ponk" appears to be the term applied to an airship called the "Pinkyponk" hitting a tree nose-on. But still.
I'm still here. I've just had very little to say that would interest anyone, that's all. Work's been (surprisingly) keeping me busy, at least. Not terribly exciting stuff, but stuff nonetheless. And I went to Brighton to play some bridge, and didn't do terribly well. I also got a mild dose of sunburn, but it was worth it to swim in the sea for a bit.

Oh, and at some point I guess I should review Metal Swarm, before I forget all about it. I've almost finished The Dreaming Void now as well. By which point I'll have run out of books to read, though I did come across one in Borders the other day I might pick up (it's about superheroes, can't remember the title or the author off the top of my head but I read the first few paragraphs and was interested enough to think I might want to give it a go).

Talking of which, it's Wednesday, so Heroes is on! Yay! Though tomorrow night, it's the last House for a few months. Boo!

A colleague has managed to get hold of tickets for a recording of a Big Brother 8 Out Of 10 Cats Special. Two of my colleagues replied that they were on holiday and couldn't go (lucky people). I needed a better reason:

I wish I was too but I have plenty of time to come up with a better excuse than "why would I want to waste my life watching Jimmy Carr and a bunch of nobody ZZZZZZZZZZZZ-listers some of whom are less famous than I am recording a C-list "celebrity" identikit panel show?"
