Moving and other Gumpf

Urgh, moving house sucks....you sort out all your stuff, filling boxes, bin bags, bottles and anything else which makes transportation of masses of crap reasonably hassle free, transport said crap and then re-sort and unpack everything on the other end....I'm nearly there anyway....and most importantly my DVD collection has already been re-housed and anally alphabetized.

So, I finished my last few shifts....seeing Green-eyed Guy for one final time.....I'll definitely miss that finely formed figure of a man....at least I still have friends to visit in the area, who may require sustenance, and therefore an excuse to return to Co-op.

Much hilarity was had last Thursday evening when my father and I visited Londontown to share an audience with none other than Mork, aka Robin Williams, himself.....quite possibly the funniest show I've seen in ages, witty, topical...and kinda smutty, in a 'I can't believe he just said that but I know where he's coming from' kinda way....Kudos goes to my sister who seems to know that right people and managed to acquire tickets to the two night only, completely sold out show....ta sis.

The perks of not working stupid hours and already becoming apparent....I went shopping in town with my mother this afternoon and completely thrashed my father at Cribbage this evening whilst watching the utterly fabulous Merlin (I know, life in the fast lane from now on)......Merlin by the way is engrossing, witty, action packed and an interesting angle on the legend.

Oh, also this evening I wandered down to the beach to watch the amazing sunset....afraid the photos don't really do the colours justice, but enjoy anyhoo.

Ahh, moving. You never know just how much crap you own until you have to pack it up and move it. And then you open boxes, look at the stuff inside and ask: "Why did I pack this?? I could have thrown it away."

We just caught Robin Williams on Graham Norton and he was hilarious. Not as funny as seeing him do stand-up, I'm sure, but still good. I can only imagine what would fly past his lips when he didn't have to worry about censors ;)

Glad things are going well back home with your parents. If you start putting your hair in curlers and playing bingo on Friday nights, I'll start to worry ;)

Can't wait for Merlin to start showing here. NBC has apparently picked up the airing rights, but we'll have to wait for spring before they're going to start running it.
