    I think Canticle is in a plastic box down in the garage, probably being consumed by damp.

    On which happy note I suppose I'd better put some clothes on & make tea.

    Which turned out to be a Ginsters Chicken & Mushroom slice with scrambled egg & poached tomato on Morrisons pumkin seeded toast.

    It was very nice.

    Followed by 1.05 pints of Good Glengettie Tea.

    Yum.

    In other news, one of the eggs was cracked so it got given to the jackdaws. I'm sure they'll be pleased.

    In other other news, I've dressed.

    Not sure whether what I just ate was tea, dinner, or even a late lunch, but one thing it definitely was: breakfast! A lovely big fry-up, and very nice too

    Default Oh dear.

    Walking with loony lady friend today and picked up a small shiny canister in the grass. Had no idea what it was. Turns out it's laughing gas!

    This evening's first feature was "Chain Reaction (1996)" with Keanu Reeves, Brian Cox, Morgan Freeman, and Rachel Weisz.

    Chain Reaction (1996) - IMDb

    It was rather good in a silly sort of way.

    The ep of "The Bad Skin" thing is a repeat despite the guide saying that it's not.

    I quite enjoyed that when I watched it last year

The actions of most people and organisations make virtually no sense at any time, all aspects of reality are subservient to whatever is most convenient for the plot, and none of those things work like that; none. But it's pretty entertaining if you don't get hung up on any of that

    I did pause it at one point to try to decipher the titles of the books on a shelf in the background of one scene. I was hoping for something akin to those 1950s movies, in one of which a professor of astronomy had a book on his desk with the title "The Stars", and in another of which a nuclear scientist had a book on his shelf with the title "Science". But the only one I could make out was something like "Analytical Statistics"
