At some point I need to face a wall of six or seven shelves of off air video recordings and ten shelves of prerecorded videos. I kept them for teaching, but they stole all the VCRs from the teaching rooms. One can book a VCR, but they make it hard for you. I have two, soon to be three, working VCRs at home, so it's not as if I can't play them. But will I?

Get rid now whilst charity shops still flog them?

Overheard last night in the Little Room:

"Ah, it's called Avenue Q is it? I didn't realise."

The design on the front cloth might have given it away. Or the words on the programmes being held up for sale. Or the posters in the foyer. I guess they might not have seen the tickets if they were bought for them. But even so...

Overheard on Saturday in the Carbuncle:

"Does he play the guitar?"

The three guitars on stage might have given it away.

(Still, I've been to enough comedians that I know nothing about.)

Mitch Benn had a lot of different material from usual on the set, alongside old favourites. And you know how audiences break into that moronic clapping along? I was sourly tempted to for "Auto Erotic Asphyxiation".

... a pigeon shat on my head. I was convinced it was a metaphor for the day.

Ha. I thought it was a pigeon.
1) I was convinced I had packed my not Star Wars tshirt and had laid it out on my hotel bed so as not to pack it. I am deluded in one of my suppositions.*

2) At Christmas 2008 my aunt bought my five pairs of socks, which are identical, aside from coloured tips to the toe, and a stripe at the top of the ankle. Assuming I grabbed six socks, how many different colours do I have?**

3) The Guardian, being The Guardian, is giving away Romantic Poetry supplements and, being The Guardian, has collections of Joanna Baillie, Mary Wollstonecraft, Charlotte Smith, Anna Laetitia Barbauld, Mary Robinson, John Clare and Helen Williams, rather than perpetuating Romanticism as six blokes and Burns because it's that time of year.***
