There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.

14 December 2005

Well just whack me upside the head why don’t you. Just noticed[1] that I had been calling Mish’s blog Penguin’s Rock! When of course the rock was not a stone that belonged to the penguins, but rather a description of their utter coolness. Damn you grocer’s apostrophe, damn you!

Still, all better now.

Which is nice. As today was a good day. Did a bit of shopping, dvds for the brothers and one for me The Company of Wolves, and special edition no less. Never seen it, but its got werewolves. I love werewolves. And it only cost a tenner, so no biggie if I hate it.

And then I got home and wished I’d bought myself more pressies as there was a cheque for almost 500 euro sitting in my postbox[2] So I suppose now I’m glad I was paying Superanuation each week. I know, I should pay off my credit card, but that so isn’t going to happen.

Also, it is Wed., so Rome[3] And who doesn’t love Rome, or, more specifically Titus Pullo, aka Chicken. Not the real one mind.

And, because the library is now on reduced, out-of-term hours I’ll get an extra 30 mins in bed. Sweet! Course, I will then be leaving half an hour later, but thats not such a big deal.


  1. and now changed
  2. How unsafe is that? This is the postbox where numerous cheques previously went missing, leading to fraud and and Gardaí becoming invovled.
  3. Legio XIII Gemina

    I think I may be in love with the people who came up with Wikipedia, and the people who feed it every day. I just may.

    The Company of Wolves is brilliant.

    Hey, the new Rome site is Legio XIII Gemina, not Legio XII Gemina. 13th Legion, not 12th. The twelfth wasn't gemina anyway.

    I know, I know. Typos, had it as the 13th last night didn't I? But the footnore thing needed editing and I chopped off an I by mistake. All fixed now.

    Hey, do you remember a while back you were all entranced with the BT Christmas windas? (Think they're by Stella McCartney BTW) Anyway, they remind me a bit of the wedding reception vignette in Company of Wolves. Watch and see if you agree. Nearly bought it myself t'other day. But should not buy things for myself over Christmas. BAD B!

  8. Fence says:

    Course you should buy things. Specially when they are cheap. I got myself On the Waterfront yesterday. Only a tenner so you can't go wrong :)

    On the Waterfront is GREAT. Watch out for the walking with girl's glove bit. Fantastic. LOVE Brando.
