I found out today that Marc Bolan (of T-Rex fame) was the session guitarist on Ike and Tina Turner's Nutbush City Limits... Isn't that interesting? Well, I thought so!

OK. I've just joined my local Freecycle group. Now I need to list all the stuff we need rid of! Does anyone else here do this? Is it easy? I need to trawl through all the recommendations, terms and conditions and etiquette....

Anyhoo. Still pootling along. Nothing new to report. And it's about time I hit the shower!

Reading...

Thought I might do this more often.

I'm currently reading this:


Dead Until Dark, by Charlaine Harris.

What are you reading?

There used to be a little book badge thing that would generate a link to Amazon. It doesn't appear to work any more. I wonder if I should start a little community or something, just among my friends, to find out if anyone is reading anything interesting. Not terribly highbrow or anything, just fun.

I must have been about 8, I think. I don't remember when I realized.
But wouldn't it be nice if he were real?

Friends restore Lotus in secret

A sports car enthusiast who suffered a mini stroke while restoring a Lotus Espirit was amazed when online friends finished the work for him in secret. Simon Pritchard, 36, from Abergavenny, had been in the process of rebuilding the 25-year-old car when he fell ill.

When members of the Lotus Espirit online forum website heard, they donated money and time to fix it.

1. You leave clubs before the end to 'beat the rush' (worst still you don't go to the clubs)

2. You get more excited about having a roast on a Sunday than going clubbing the night before.

3. You stop dreaming of becoming a professional footballer / basketball player and start dreaming of having a son who might instead.

4. Before throwing the local paper away, you look through the property section.

5. All of a sudden, middle-aged people are not 46, they are only 46.

6. Before going out anywhere, you ask whether there is anywhere to park.

7. Rather than throw a knackered pair of trainers out, you keep them because they'll be alright for the DIY or in the garden.

8. You buy T-shirts without anything written on them.

9. Instead of laughing at the innovations catalogue that falls out of the newspaper, you suddenly see both the benefit and money saving properties of most of the things that are in it.

10. You start to worry about your parents' health.

11. You have more disposable income, but everything you want or need to buy costs between 200 and 500 quid.

12. You don't get funny looks when you buy a Disney video or a Wallace and Gromit bubble bath, as the sales assistant assumes they are for your children.

13. Pop music all starts to sound the same.

14. You opt for Pizza Express over Pizza Hut because they do a really nice half-bottle of house red.

15. You always have enough milk in the fridge.

16. To compensate for the fact that you have little desire to go clubbing, you instead frequent trendy bars and restaurants in the mistaken belief that you have not turned into your parents.

17. While flicking through the TV channels, you happen upon C4's Time Team with Tony Robinson. You get drawn in. Grand Designs also appeals. Not to mention Antiques Roadshow!!

18. The benefits of a pension scheme become clear.

19. You go out of your way to pick up a colour chart from B&Q.

20. You wish you had a shed.

21. You have a shed.

22. You actually find yourself saying 'They don't make 'em like that anymore' and 'I remember when there were only 4 TV channels' and 'Not in my day....'

23. Radio 2 play more songs you know than Radio 1 - and Jeremy Vine has some really interesting guests on.

24. Instead of tutting at old people who take ages to get off the bus, you tut at rowdy school children.

25. When sitting outside a pub you admire their hanging baskets.

26. You find yourself saying 'is it cold in here or is it just me

27. You understand the above and forward it to your fellow aging friends.

Quick question...

Is there a way of putting a cut tag so that the text you want to appear doesn't have parentheses around it? Sometimes I just want the link to be a different colour, or underlined, with no brackets, for example to follow on in a sentence.

Like, if I just put <*lj-cut text="Here"*> (without the asterisks), the 'Here' appears in parentheses. Like this: Here ) I don't want it to. LOL.

Any thoughts, anybody?

I need a Rain icon.

One with rain, or clouds, or an umbrella. Something like that. Anybody got anything? I'll credit, of course.
