(no subject)

I've just spent the past hour avoiding doing anything productive. But must get into gear soon as it's Tai Chi tonight. The bad news last week was learning that I couldn't have the clips to burn on a CD to take with me to France to play on the laptop. (Copyright issues) No amount of explaining that there was no room to swing the proverbial cat, let alone practice in front of my PC, would change R's mind about making the clips available off-line.

Was very naughty last night and ordered a DVD player from Amazon. (I'm tired of perching on my office chair to watch on my PC.)Major problem, it will arrive on the day of our Anniversary, and we shall be in Paris. Let's hope postie doesn't do what he did with BtVS Season 6 DVDs. (Stuffed them under the side gate.)

Need to take your order for French Cider soon bogwitch. What's your preference? Dry? Sweet?

Yee Gods but it's cold

The drive back from Tai Chi was fraught, all 1.2 miles of it. The inside of the windscreen kept icing up and the de-mister wasn't up to heat to make any difference.I checked the temperature gauge and it was cheerfully telling me it was 42 degrees C. (it melted in the hot summer, last year in France.)

The road back home is a Roman road - dead straight - but with switchbacks that hide on-coming cars until they are almost upon you, their headlights blurring everything on the windscreen. It was like driving through freezing fog. Not helped by the idiot who decided to ride my bumper all the way because I wouldn't pull over far enough for him to over-take. Didn't he realise I was saving his life? The number of head-on collisions on that road is frightening.

On another note, just read the AtS wildfeed Collapse )
