Uh, even if I don't live in the US? Yep, apparently so. Hmm, a use at last for that Aaron Spelling show. I do wish website designers would take some time to consider those of us in Europe once in a while.


It's never easy to relax on a Sunday knowing that the working week starts again at 5:30 the next morning, but I've tried my best. Am reading the new Julian Barnes novel, "England, England", which is all very wonderful, and, well, English. It even prompted me to dig out my old jigsaw puzzle of the British Isles.


Also spent quality time listening to some good music:

  • Manic Street Preachers - "This is My Truth, Tell Me Yours"
  • Spinanes - "Arches and Aisles"
  • Billy Bragg & Wilco - "Mermaid Avenue"
  • Beatles - "Revolver"
  • Barenaked Ladies - "Stunt"

Quite a pleasant weekend, really. Hey, and only one five days separate me from a week-long holiday. Whether it will be Scotland or Wales remains to be seen, but either way I'm looking forward to getting away from it all for a while. There's just the small matter of the intervening five days at work. My weekdays are less than ideal; I've been browsing Sartre and Coupland for sympathy.

And now, to distract myself from the weekend coming to a shattering halt, I'm off to tidy up my CD collection (the most orderly part of my room), and organise my IE4 Favorites. These are things that, perversely, I enjoy doing...
