Four



So this pile of bloggins has survived another anniversary, its fourth, time for the annual apology

sorry some/ all entries have been crap

this I would have written yesterday if I wasn't organising the separate bins for recycling day and putting them out. Its kinda become a Monday ritual carefully removing the address from an envelope or piece of junk mail with Eastenders playing in the background.

I haven't regularly watched Coronation Street since the 90's yet even in this age of media proliferation I still have an awareness of the main characters, plots and the fact Mike Baldwin's no longer in it aided by the fact its on when I visit friends and relations. Hence I saw the big crash, given it was major anniversary and is still very profitable for ITV you would have thought they'd spend more than a fiver on effects.

Currently there seems a media brew-ha over the number of LGBT character, one of the complaints seems to be unrealism perhaps forgetting it is a soap opera and occasionally reality would make a crap 25 minutes of drama.


A few weeks ago I had a bit of free time in London and so I visited the British Library to see their small science-fiction exhibition because I'm interested in the genre and library's are cool. The curator(s) took a quite broad brush approach as opposed to the more narrow focus many purists would take to the subject and while some of the conclusions are hardly new there's some little titbit's that make it worth visiting.

I also got my hair cut for the first time in ages it was just getting far too long and unmanageable. After finding a hairdresser who would take me without an appointment I have something that looks better and more feminine if I wish it to be. I did try to take a quick self portrait sadly one was over exposed and on the other had me scowling.

I miss the old C4 transforming logo and tune. [/old fart] :-)

Belated congratulations on making it to four years. Fingers crossed for many more.

Shame about the photo trouble, but so it goes sometimes.

The sci-fi exhibition sounds very interesting and I guess that it's such a huge subject, that covered it all must have felt like monumental task. Where there any displays that stood out for you?

Hey! It's not that bad Lucy and four years as quite an achievement in blogging. I have an off/on relationship with self timers with digital cameras they're either buried in the menu gubbins or set so it's flash off, selftimer, flash on which is silly. My old film cameras were much better at this stuff. (sigh)
Now to visit my hairdresser...
Love Caroline.

Not the best with self timers myself need to keep practising.

I can't remember a exceptional stand out moment but it was a good little romp through.
