I can't quite put my finger on what's brought it on, but I suspect that a combination of things are to blame, including more Car related woes (it's in the garage again!). I have taken up swimming (in a pool, not the sea) though, which seems to be taking the edge off, somewhat.
Oh, the inclusion of the Parsnip People (from my allotment) up there will become apparent if you keep reading.
New music: I've been surprised by White Lies latest release "Am I Really Going To Die". That's three in a row from them that I've taken to. I'm not usually a fan of their music as it aways seems too maudlin and ernest for my liking, but this one is quite bright and pop-y with some rather exhilarating bits (I haven't really listened to the words, so it's probably really miserable).
Also, I'm getting sick of the lead singer's glum, beardy face singing at me/the camera.
I've been watching Ghosts on BBC iPlayer - My new favourite tv show! It's funny, endearing and just as I imagine an adult, modern version of Rentaghost would be. Plus, although it's a sitcom, there are one or two scary moments - Mary's dream in S3 Ep 5 "Something to Share?", for example. Just Mary describing it is bad enough, but when Alison (and the other ghosts) catches her dream and we get to see it... Brrrrr! The bit with the carrots brings to mind a certain scene in Pan's Labyrinth.
My favourite ghost is Robin the caveman, but I do have a little crush on The Captain!
In other news, I'm not getting on very well with the new version of the Freakin' Green Elf Shorts Travel Map. I've got as far as marking all the winners' locations on Google Earth in the hopes of provoking some inspiration, but all the dithering (and procrastination) has smothered any emerging ideas.
Finally, here are some photos from the promenade here in overstrand on 9th January - the last time I published anything!
I'm off to play Lego with my nephew, Count Podgkinson very soon, so I'll do the rounds to catch up with what you've all been up to once I'm back.
