Listen in, listen Ian!
Oh, I was going to post a big post about what I've done recently, but I find I can't be bothered to go into much detail (I'm mysteriously tired today) so here's a quick bullet point type thing:

- Last Friday evening, Adam Buxton's Focus group at the BFI. Some bits of film, some charcter stuff, a mediocre guest stand-up, Kevin Eldon's performance poet character (and I've never been more relieved than when he got up on stage after being announced as the poet) and a band. Pretty good show all in, especially for the very reasonable price.

- Saturday, from about midday to half past two. NOTHING. Alright?

- Saturday afternoon - went out to St James's park to look at the pelicans, and they were gone! They've drained the lake to de-silt it, so I had to be content with the squirrels, who were being quite playful and the spring flowers in full bloom. Lots of daffodils. Then I walked down through the back streets of Victoria to Pimlico station.

- Sunday was the East Putney to Putney Bridge tube walk via Wandsworth, followed by food and drink in Putney until late. Putney High Street's quite bustling isn't it? I may go back and look at it in daylight at some point.

- Yesterday was Camera Obscura at the Lexington, courtesy of miss_newham sorting tickets out through her work. They were excellent and the new songs all sound good.

Tonight is Oliver! That should be good. Then tomorrow and Thursday QNsI that I feel like I need.

Man with silly name gets upset at someone at Vodafone making fun of his silly name.

Sunday : you walked right past my work, you did - we're a couple of doors down from the Brazilian Naval Commission In Europe offices on the Upper Richmond Road, which has always struck me as an odd place for the Brazilian Naval Commission In Europe to be.

Putney High Street is very bustly, yes, but it's pretty much the same as any other high street as far as I can see - chain shops everywhere. I wouldn't go out of my way for a daytime visit if I were you.

Walked through St James' Park this morning and the pelicans were definitely out. In fact, all the birds of the lake were over in the bit that they've left undrained (on the Horse Guards Parade side) so there was a bit of a Sea of Coots. AMAZING!

I just read that article about Mr Titman to J and now I have tears of mirth running down my face. Poor Mr Titman. You try reading it out to someone.
