J N Wiliamson died today, as did Robert Sheckley. I'm pretty sure I haven't read any by the first but I'm pretty sure I've read a few by the second but I can't see any that I recognise on the Fantastic Fiction site.

Just a little minor snark, although the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is the first published, it's not the first in the sequence, The Magician's Nephew is. Tho I really can't see them filming it.

Well I kinda hoped that Christy Moore's new album "Burning Times" would be a nice thing to point people at to distract them from the "Oh Noes the Burning Times" but no - a quick check of the lyrics show a quite wiccan song

So I want to knit my sister something for christmas, you'd think that a largish box with "Fragile Knitting" would be pretty easy to find? NAH! Yesterday I tried to find it and repeated the exercise today failing again, bloody Hickey's don't have double pointed needles, oh no, just 3 sizes of circular needles, none of which were the right size (2.75/3 & 3.25/3.5 for the record). Now in this box, and the reason it's marked fragile, are my needles, all except a box of single pointed needles whic...

You know if I was earning over E250,000 per annum I wouldn't be complaining about paying a bit of tax, if I was earning E250,000 from writing or any other artistic endeavour I think I'd be so shocked that I'd keel over!

While trawling through stuff I found out that Senator David Norris has a Blog!No RSS listed and it looks largely like transcriptions from Seanad debates but cool that at least one of our (Irish) politicians have embraced blogging.

So I buy my mum a flower press online. Then I find that it's not exactly what she wants, it's quite small, so I have to ask has anyone here seen a flower press available for sale around?

You Have a Melancholic TemperamentIntrospective and reflective, you think about everything and anything.You are a soft-hearted daydreamer. You long for your ideal life.You love silence and solitude. Everyday life is usually too chaotic for you.Given enough time alone, it's easy for you to find inner peace.You tend to be spiritual, having found your own meaning of life.Wise and patient, you can help people through difficult times.At your worst, you brood and sulk. Your negative thoughts can trap ...

So the week so far.Monday, tiringTuesday: Meeting in town. Lunch in O'Briens on Westmoreland St. Nice staff pity they insist on having background noise that drowns out perfectly reasonable conversation like "Spicy Chicken Wrappo" and "Latte". Lift home from ex-boss who also lives in Lucan but on the other side, chat about a lot of stuff, I find out that most of my issues are hers too. The therapy of a decent bitching session!Wednesday: Working Late. Staff member finds strange battery operat...
