    That reminds me, I watched a Morse last week (or maybe the week before). Might watch another one soon

      must be going on autumn.
      the arachnidae are about again.
      just watched one about 2.5 inch legspan explore my sitting room.




      and it moved along MUCH faster than this turgid morose stuff that stanislav lem would be proud of.

      :sigh:

        Tea has been chicken thighs in red wine sauce, with chunky chips and petits pois. Very tasty

        Still windy, and the occasional smattering of rain

          The spider that was lurking in a corner behind my armchair, near where I plug the laptop in, has come back after having moved away a couple of months ago. Either that, or another one has turned up

            Sicilian lemon seafood pasta. Baby octopus gently poached with red wine & vinegar.

            Very delicious.

            Rinder and "Who do you think you are?" was quite moving.

            Night night

              Entertainment (continued (continued)):

              "Ghosts of the Deep" on More4. Some nonsense about the Black Sea where they are looking for ancient shipwrecks.

              They're pulling up amphora for no readily stated reason.

              They've modified the rov by adding a toilet plunger to grip the amphora.

              Amazingly it worked.

              Now they've found a Roman shipwreck from the 1st century (allegedly).

                I watched a BBC thing about corruption in Egypt and the questionable legality of the recent 'King Tut' exhibition that was touring just before the world ended. Then the iPlayer autoplay function (which is usually off...) presented a thing about COVID-19 with those doctors who are twins, Xand and wotsit thingummy. Then I watched the latest University Challenge.

                I say I watched these things. It was all just noise in the background TBH.

                Now it's sleepy night nights time.

                  Apparently a new translation of Beowulf has just been published. One of those things I've never read. I've got both Tolkien's and Heaney's translations sitting on the shelf, bought in a fit of enthusiasm in 2014 and never opened

                    Well you wouldn't want to wear the print out by reading it now would you?

                      Exactly! Not to mention wearing out the lenses on my reading glasses by looking through them

                      No telly tonight as my right ear has started grumbling about the hearing aid again, so I wanted to give it a rest

                      Instead, I wore out the glasses anyway by reading Pepys' diary entries for February 1664 - a leap year, though he made no particular note of the fact

                      Still very windy out

                      Goodnight all
