Well, the exams and course are over - hurrah! Now I can get down to planning how to spend money I don't really have on a new PC in preparation for the anti-girlie weekend on 23/24th November when a load of sad sweaty chaps spend 48+ hours going slowly blind playing LAN games in Birmingham.

But tonight was all about "legs". Of course, by this I mean athletic russian ballet legs. Yes - your intrepid reporter set out to investigate Spartacus at the Hippodrome in Birmingham. Not bad, not bad at all. I enjoyed it, but don't feel up to saying too much more less it show what a buffoon I am.

High Points - Crassus Legs
Low Points - Standard Bearer #2 who was clearly a stand in standard bearer and didn't seem clear what the others were doing.
Unanswered Questions - How do they stay on point for so long? How do you lift a petit russian ballerina up with one hand? Why did all the female characters in the show have exposed right breasts, sometimes with a red gem for a nipple?

Understand now why I look in a daze so much - my life is so complicated.

Mind you at least it worked technically from a scenery PoV - not that there was much. I recall seeing Jesus Christ Superstar at the Hippodrome and they couldn't erect Jesus' Cross. Very embarrassing. First they attacked it with a hammer, then they brought the curtain down, sellotaped it up, then raised the curtain (at least that was the impression I had).

In other news, 2 gerbils have arrived. Alas they hate each other so this means 2 gerbil tanks (grrrr). Also, I found the wallet I thought I'd lost so I seem to have wasted a couple of hours panicing. Mind you last time this happened to me (oooh, must have been a week ago) I found it in the middle of the front lawn.

I've got another super day out in London tomorrow (yawn!) - the trains are still up the swanny and the meeting hasn't been confirmed. Of course, my boss hasn't actually told me what its about yet, or what I've got to say - but I'm sure he'll ring me in the morning, plan to meet up before the meeting, be late, delay the start of the meeting, etc. Normal stuff.

I could stay down for Liberty Bounds again, but suspect if I do it verges becoming a habit ;-)

Now the rats are out, so I'd better press the post button so they can use the laptop to surf for porn or send instant messages like they normally do.

GD mood improving. NWO mood definitely still on the way up. Keeping both under control will be the problem I suspect.

My only GD concern is that I seem to be slowly learning far more than I want about my dead Husband through OOC means. I'm trying to avoid it - but unfortunately odd comments are making things slot into place. Bother bother.

    Another day, another drive up the M42/A42/M1. I sometimes worry I am in a rut.

    Things happening. Been places. Less busy now. Here are some photos from Leipzig. Not a lot. But you'll like them.
