Nothing

You know those episodes of soap operas where nothing happens? Those days that seem to just slide away from you, while you swing your legs and idly check your watch? The kind of day you can imagine Huckleberry Finn having? I'm having one of those days.

It's all winding down for me here at my current job. Only a few days left before I have to pack up my Captain Janeway photo, my Oscar and my many bottles of wine before I have to hie it out. So many sips left from my Doctor Who mug, so many times I'll just get bored and type in 'gay porn please!' into Google. Ah, sad news.

So I kick up my heels, The Wife is off being a film star again. I know! It's all glamour when you've got leonine locks like Samson, isn't it? It's a shoot directed and written by one of my very good friends (and someone who guest-blogged on here once - I shall remind you all of this when he's famous). I believe it to be going well. Though I did get a message a few hours back:

'As near as I can tell, I'm in a porn studio!' he texted excitedly. 'There's more animal print here than Jackie Collins' luggage, a pole in the living room, and a sign saying 'Try not to use baby oil near the camera equipment'.

Lorks. How very thrilling! How enviable.

The most exciting thing I'm doing today is snacking on prunes. Then eating a handful of soya nuts. Then more prunes. Ah, they're healthy, and I was wondering what's going to happen

Hmm. I just can't help thinking 'buckshot'...

Buckshot! Ah, me. You've still gorrit. I hope you'll still be posting once you leave your position there mate.

Buckshot! That reminds me of something you could do. They made a couple of fine films Buckleroos something. Not exactly work friendly but what are they gonna do, sack you?

Prunes and soya nuts? This sounds like it could become a live re-enactment of one version of the classic joke, The Aristocrats.

Does this mean that you can skive out and meet me for coffee?????

Not yet obviously as the diary runs WEEKS in advance darling, but I've got another lovely stay at the Grange City the first week of August.

It was last month - don't worry. I was remarkably vague about it!
