    Tea: last of the roast beef with carrots & onions.

    Dunno why but it seemed completely tasteless again.

    Maybe it really is me.

    Now getting outside 1.05 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    The evening's entertainment will begin with the last part of the commentary on "ST:TMP" from yesterday.

    Turning the text commentary on at the same time as the director's commentary saves a lot of time.

    i wash towels separately 'cos i don't use softener on them <it renders them soft and useless>
    everything else can take its chances in a 40 degree cotton wash.
    nothing i have gets manky enough to need boiling.
    mumsnet over and out.

    now watching more of 'hill st blues'
    i'd forgotten how good it is.

    Entropy is NOT what it used to be.
    Inertia, however........................

    Which season are you watching?

    "Let's be careful out there" or "Let's do it to them before they do it to us"?

    The only time I wash anything at 40 deg is shirts, denim, and the 20 minute short cycle that's good enough for work clothes & the crap I wear around the house (once it's unpleasant enough for me to notice though it never gets to the stage of some of the unwashed encountered when in with the hoi polloi).

    i began at the beginning.
    i'l watch on through the middle.
    and i'll finish at the end*

    *unless it becomes formulaic and dull, which happens to some things.

    Tea has been chicken in red wine sauce out of the freezer, with potato wedges and petits pois, also out of the freezer. Very tasty

    Went out for dinner with a friend, leaving HWMBO home alone.

    I had a very nice supper at Flat Iron in Covent Garden.

    Came back home to HWMBO yelling his way through a programme about caste issues amongst British Hindus. He kept pausing it to explain to me some of the finer points of ancient racism inherent in the religion.

    We then watched the first episode of Frankie Boyle pottering about Scotland making quips about people, drugs, the weather, the Glencoe massacre etc.

    As I hardly ever saw it back in the Eighties, my life not involving much TV watching in those days, I figured I’d have a look at the first episode, Hill Street Station (TV Episode 1981). It does seem to be very good

    And in addition, a bit of reading: The Midwich Cuckoos, which I haven’t read in a fair few years. Just a few chapters in now, but I’d better stop because John Wyndham has the knack of keeping you reading, and I have stuff to do in the morning

    Raining out, and will apparently continue to do so for ages

    Goodnight all

    The difference between a Hilton Garden Inn and a Hilton Doubletree: the GI charges $1 for bottles of water to non-diamond card holders. The Doubletree is $4 for the same water.
