    You should try ringing Mrs.MarkyMarks Mum during the tennis

    Anyway I'm done, 40 hours or so with my two lovely nephews.

    She's just perfect

    Have the beeb ticked all the boxes?

    Is she a disabled black lesbian?

    If not, why not.

    I don't not pay my licence fee for nothing you know.

    Dunno about the dinos, but the wasps get completely bladdered a bit later on in July & August.

    Instead of doing something vaguely useful, I spent the late afternoon watching the NZ and City of London cop shows, plus the NZ customs thing.

    I think I'm customed out now so I won't be watching that any more.

    There's another of those R4 "comedies" on at the moment so I've turned the wireless off.

    Much like I did at noon when the desperately unfunny ISIHAC came.

    The cluelessness of the entire enterprise is blatently obvious.

    You mean you don't watch that award winning show Broadchurch?


    Neither do I, I just Googled who she was.

    I've spent the afternoon Googling tennis stats for family so thought I would Google her as well.

    In the Chinese. It's turned into quite a pleasant evening, sunny but not too hot

    This evening's entertainment was "Edge of Darkness", not the BBC series from the 80s, but rather the Mel Gibson and Ray Winstone version from 2010.

    It was very good.

    Edge of Darkness (2010) - IMDb

    I particularly liked the Ray Winstone character.

    Gibson is very good in it too.

    In other news, it must be said that it's fecking freezing out there at the moment, really quite parky.

    And I see that they've remade "The Beguiled", the Clint Eastwood movie from 1971 set in a Civil War girls' skool in the south.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066819/?ref_=nv_sr_2

    Not exactly one of my favourites, it must be said.

    I think I've seen it once, had the book back in the day but never read it.
