    Dusting done. Second bed linen load in the WM

    No 'work' done as yet. Lemmings has been too distracting.

    Just noticed that my packet of dark chocolate digestives has an expiry date of 16 November 2019 so I made a cup of coffee so I can eat a few.

    Also noticed that many of the gin offers on at Waitrose are available via Ocado so added some bottles to the order coming tomorrow morning.

    I had a late light lunch of a small fry-up, to stave off the pangs until it’s time to go to the Chinese

    Then I wandered up to the Amazon Locker to collect the network cables, which arrived a little while ago. I now have my iMac, MacBook Air, Apple TV, and Samsung telly all set up with wired connections

    Tea this evening was spag bol, the bol being of last week's manufacture.

    I thought I'd got the chili con carne by mistake judging by the heat of it, but it really was bol.

    Rounded off with 1.05 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    It was all very nice.

    Followed in turn by BTVS S5 E16 "The Body" being one of the sadder episodes.

    Now watching "Great British Car Journeys " on 4, this one is the A30 from that London to Land's End.

    They've experienced two ancient motor cars, one from 1900 which gets 3hp from 3 litres and the much more efficient Ford Model T which gets an astounding 20hp from 3 litres.

    Never mind the power feel the torque.

    Question 1 of 3 done. I have been much distracted by pretty much anything and everything but I'm getting there, slowly.

    Question 2 is a tedious 'essay plan' exercise. Apparently, it's not sufficent for the plan to be:

    Introduction: tell the audience what you want to talk about
    Body: tell the audience the thing you want to talk about
    Conclusion: tell the audience what you were just talking about



    I got the title nailed though, "Comparison of the diversity, organisation and function of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells". Glad I don't actually have to write the full essay...

    There was another customer in there

    Luckily he stayed over in the corner mumbling to someone on his phone for the entire time, so I wasn’t forced to engage in conversation like last week

    For which relief much thanks.

    So that's BTVS S5 E16 & 17, Angel S2 E16 & 17 done & dusted.

    As it were.

    Harmony turned up in Angel.

    First film tonight was Sicario 2: Soldado (2018), which was basically more of the same but without Emily Blunt. OK for what it is, but nowt special.

    And after that, a rewatch of A Quiet Place (2018), which coincidentally does have Emily Blunt. It’s a good one as post-apocalyptic monster things go

    And then the penultimate episode of S1 of The Wire: Cleaning Up (TV Episode 2002)

    Goodnight all
