good things

*Walking through the park to the library in the crisp Autumn sun listening to the Is Wedding playlist on my iPod, filled with the tracks I downloaded and then burned onto a CD for DJing purposes. Pure bliss.

*The fact that I just got all of last night's Veronica Mars. Even though I will be noble and wait to watch it until Patsington gets home.

*Looking on Abebooks for Jill Tweedie's collection of '70s Grauniad columns and finding it in a Meath bookshop that will post it out to me today.

*Laughing about Ju Ju with Patsington, who is particularly good at doing a surly Ju Ju voice (even though at the wedding Patsington was St Peter to Ju Ju's Jesus. Yes, he denied her three times before the cock crowed! Or something. Anyway, he pretended that he is not just as much of a crazy cat man as I am a crazy cat lady, which is very unfair. And when I accused him of this he sniggered evilly. Bold Patsington!).

*The fact that I am finally going to see Serenity tomorrow with glitzfrau and hopefully our friend J-Gu.

* Young David Platt on last night's Coronation Street blasting Joy Division from his bedroom. Extra points for disrupting the romance of his horrible shrew of a mother Gail with his excellent musical taste! If you needed any more proof that Corrie rocks, then this, surely, should be it. I should add that all the acting in the recent Danny/Leanne revelation plotline has been excellent, especially Frankie, and even, I'm afraid to say, Dougal-haired Wurzel Gummidge lookalike Jamie.

Enjoy Serenity, it is fantastic! The writing is, as you might expect given it's a Whedon project, top notch.

I can't believe you are going to Serenity without me!! Have you forgotten the heady days of Buffy in your sitting room on Thursday nights? Fie!

You repeatedly refused to watch the DVDs of the TV series, however much I tried to persuade you over the last two years! I assumed you weren't interested!

I said to you and glitzfrau on Monday that I'd love to come! But I'm all talk & complaints anyway, because I'm not free to go tomorrow, so I'll try to get Av to come with me next week.

Like cangetmad's, my Veronica Mars is downloading s-l-o-w-l-y. Is it good? have you watched it yet?

That's weird, mine was pretty quick. Will I send you my torrent?

And, I'm sorry! Will you be free to meet me and Helen and John later for a post-film drink?

Don't worry! I'm really unfree at the moment as it's book launch season, so I probably wouldn't have been free to go for ages. I am meeting my old-work pals tomorrow, but give me a ring after in case I am still around. Also, I hope P's film went well -- sorry I missed it.

Oh, is your torrent from mininova, that's what I'm using?

Damn, yes, that's where i got mine. But there were two torrents available this morning - I chose the one that had the most seeders. I'll mail it to you anyway in case it's not the one you have. Mine was the usual speed - not ridiculously fast, but finished by about five.

Where did you get the VMars? I have two torrents going at 1KiB/s each and I will probably be dead before they finish.

I'll e-mail the torrent to you...

Corrie's really good these days. Cilla asking Shellie for a loan of her wedding dress was hilarious! And yer wan that plays Frankie is excellent; I've seen her on a couple of other shows, and she is really really talented. Ok, I saw her on "Stars in Their Eyes" doing "Wuthering Heights" as Kate Bush - of course now she's fab by default!

I'd love a Cilla "smirk" icon but there is a lack of Cilla pics in google's image cache. For shame, says I.

Well, you can find some gurning ones. Like this!

If you go to the official Corrie site (www.itv.com/coronationstreet ) , the recaps are filled with excellent stills. You should find a smirking Cilla somewhere!

And I agree that Frankie is particularly good, especially at giving Leanne the stink-eye. She was positively scary! But the standard of acting in general is pretty high (Dev excepted). And the writing is always fantastic. The funny bits are funnier than most sitcoms.

Whoa, thanks! Watch this space for a Cilla pretending-to-be-cute-but-really-being-eeeeevil icon!

I don't know why Today FM stopped doing the Corrie recaps during Gift Grub every morning. The guy who did them was amazing, and he could change his voice from Audrey into Dev with startling aplomb.
