Woke up stupidly early after a night of disturbing dreams. I've had me work out, showered, made the bed...

Urm. That's it. I have a thousand things to do; need to clean the kitchen, go for a run, write a chapter of fic, add some words to the novel, so much to do in the garden it's not true and the weather looks distinctly dangerous. Which is why, I suppose,  I'm sitting on my arse, browsing LJ, drinking coffee, eating cheese and pears and listening to the radio (Neil Gaiman! on Jonathan Ross today peoples!)

Oh dear.

What a shame

Never mind.

Hey Jonathan Ross is playing the Eurovision hopefuls, the sun is shining through the billowing, thickening, darkly threatening clouds, next-door's cat is here life, is short and the coffee is good. Oh. Was that ours then? Meh. Sounds exactly like 10000 other songs. How tedious, that's never going to win. And Sweden's is the favourite? Sounds like Scott-Aitken-Waterman on helium. Bloody hell, that's awful!

What are you all doing today my babies? You're very quiet, don't tell me you've all moved over to the Place that Dare not Speak its Name? Or, worse - found lives O:! *G*
 
Mood:: 'relaxed' relaxed
location: The sofa
Music:: Eurovision on Jonathan Ross

A sci-fi comedy (written by Graham Duff and starring Mark Gatiss and a Baby Cow production no less) that's been playing on Radio 4 on Thursday nights.

Last night's final eppy guest-starred David Tennant (ref'd throughout as 'The Doctor'; yeah... I know, but it gave me a cheap little thrill and I'm grateful) as Doctor Beep and one memorable bit of dialogue went as follows...

'My brain is like Fire and Ice!'

'Your brain is like tepid water?'

'On this world i am called the Oncoming Drizzle'.

::snerk::

Also the immortal line; 'I'have to say, I found that very hard to look at, and I have a skinless groin'.  Gods, I wish I'd written that!

Last night's was the last in this series, but it's on Listen Again till next Thursday, if anyone's interested.
location: My sofa, supposedly working
Music:: Nebulous
Mood:: 'amused' amused

'Songs Your Godmother should know'; 'Chris Difford and Tom Robinson tell the story of the musical education of Times classical music critic Hilary Finch, courtesy of her goddaughter Tamasin...

Hilary stopped listening to popular music in her teens, at the start of the 70s and there's a ton of stuff she's never heard; Queen, Deep Purple, Radiohead, Nirvana, Prodigy - all this is new to her. Just listening to her reactions; what she likes, what she doesn't like, her take on everything she's hearing for the first time, her disections of each piece of music she hears... She loves Radiohead but remains unimpressed by the Arctic Monkeys and Bohemian Rhapsody.

An absolutely rivetting documentary that'll hopefully crop up on Radio 4's listen again page soon.
