24 Degrees C (somewhere in the 70's for those awkward people across the pond)

It's gone all Summer all of a sudden...British weather does have a habit of going from uber cold to uber hot overnight. I actually got my legs out for the first time this season, disbarraging looks from cocky teenagers be damned. I strolled along the prom, I know I'm an actual cliche, with my ham 'n' cheese sarnies and punnet of grapes for some people watching and relaxation while attempting to return some colour to my two crappy summers worth of skin tone...currently representative of eggshell white....hopefully said colour will be a little less lobster red and a little more sun kissed bronzed....although after today's excursion my nose is leaning slightly more towards crustacean coloured than I would have hoped for.

In all, apart from the moment I got sun cream in my eye (holy cow, does that sting!), it was a very pleasant day and I've just finished tucking into a huge bowl of choc and mint choc chip ice cream with a crushed digestives and lashings of dark chocolate sauce....nom nom nom

The forecasters predict more of the same tomorrow so I'm off to find some kind of basting liquid (cooking oil eg) for optimum sizzle potential.

Also, found this today.....lords sake, is it July yet:

Oooo, I hear you say...properly can't wait...mainly since it's been so friggin' long since Torchwood (and more to the point Mr. GDL) last appeared on our screens....In related news, well it isn't really but it's in the weird category so try to stay with me....the other night (and by night I mean 3.30 in the am) I was settling down for the night and noticed some daylight outside...we are approaching the longest day I had a look out the window, clear skies were dotted with a few twinkly stars (those which you can actually see due to light pollution anyhoo) and suddenly a large bright white light streaking across the sky...I watched for a full 10-15 seconds as the.....'answers on a postcard'....disappeared behind some low cloud at which point the light intensified and went out....I'm thinking some kind of meteor breaking up....was uber cool though and witnessed by only me and the early birds.

So, MP's are thieving, lying bastards who squander taxpayers money...who knew. Loving the Jon Stewart reportage, since I'm fairly certain I'm sick and tired of the relentless British coverage...apparently it's the only thing which has been happening in the world...that and Katie Price and Peter Andre's break-up...excuse me while I go sue the newspapers for wasting my time.

Sit Rep

So, here's the thing, what with the various ailments and general non-employment status, and therefore virtually zero funds, I appear to have mucho time on my hands and am struggling to come up with anything remotely constructive to do with my time.....for example I watched all 7 Police Academy movies over the weekend (the first one twice.....with and without the commentary on)....and I'm not even that bothered with 5-7, since Steve Guttenberg was absent, but 'had' to view them anyway in a slightly OCD way....sheesh, could my life be any more couch potato....basically I'm in a rut...a bed hogging, Internet surfing, tube watching, non-daylight seeing rut of which is non-condusive to having any kind of actual participation in 'normal' human behaviour.

I've tried looking for clubs, courses, hobbies, events....any kind of social gathering (preferably involving very little funds) to insert myself into, in an attempt to get some motivation going, alas my little town seems to be under 10 or over 60 orientated in terms of such things (bridge and girl guide clubs being a dime a dozen....along with quilting circles, luncheon clubs for those who have to remove their teeth to eat and baton twirling for ankle biters....seriously Bognor appears to be going for the Twilight Zone award of 1965), which has left me frustratingly in limbo and slowly going with boredom, and lack of motivation is one of my worst vices.

So, what do I like to do....apart from the aforementioned sedatory, writing (thought the muse has a nasty habit of vamoosing whenever it damn well pleases), walking the countryside (kinda dependant on weather and transportation...buses suck round here), the supernatural, researching (pretty much anything) I'm sure there's more, but my sedate mushed brain is not so much with the co-operation at present.

Anyhoo, I'm sure soon I'll be able to partake in something extraordinary which will vastly improve the content of this little part of cyberspace....until then any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, because as of this moment....I got nothin'

Da-da-daaaa....Captain Chaos

Sad to hear the passing of Dom Deluise, his films were a huge part of my childhood....and that laugh...
