From [livejournal.com profile] hitchhiker, source of the best links in the world.

"Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back -- in many ways it is a feast fit for a king. The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you." -- Frederick Buechner (BEEK-nur), American author, 1926-

1. V coming round for tea even though I'd nearly put him off cos I was knackered and had too much work, and in fact, it was lovely :-)

2. Last ep of Life on Mars (good tho maybe a bit, um, quiet?) and I think there's a new series coming, right?

3. Getting the IT HOns class of the year that I dread most out the way! Phew!

Bit tired for this but..

1. Buying a new CD/radio/MP3 CD/cassette player for only £20 - it can go in the kitchen in place of current one which chews up CDs.

2. Richer Sounds having my purchase of recently-dead DVD player on their computer, so even tho I can't find the receipt, I get it replaced - yay! Will pick up Wed.

3. FInally catching Close My Eyes, a very odd film I've taped on at least two prior occasions beacsue I wanted to see it, but never actually WATCHED. Will [probably] write more about it.

I also made a really great chicken cassoulet but I seem to be mentioning food too much in these :-) Thanks to Andy who altho Still Sick (what a wuss huh :-) bravely trailed round DVD and mobile phone shops with me..

Oh and I bought the Whedon trade paperbacks X-Men 1 and 2 AND Ultimates 2 t p/b!! Whoa, consumer frrenzy!

In reverse order..

1. Not getting the sticky date pudding in favour of the MUCH MORE HEALTHY strawberry shortcake.

2. having the cullen skink at the last min NOT the prawn and chili balls (yes there were people there, too!)

3. meeting V for coffee (well wine and caramelapple pie anyway) in the afternoon when he clearly wasn't gonna go tonight ..

Meanwhile I now have plans for a midnight Oscar party next Sunday and a trip to Iceland on the longest day of the year.. no bad!!!

W.O.W.

Also, re yesterday's discussion of happiness, from Andy:

An excerpt from Denis Leary’s standup act “No Cure for Cancer

God.. "I'm just not happy. I'm just not happy. I'm just not happy
because my life didn't turn out the way I thought it would." Hey! Join
the fucking club, ok!? I thought I was going to be the starting center
fielder for the Boston Red Socks. Life sucks, get a fucking helmet,
allright?! "I'm not happy. I'm not happy." Nobody's happy, ok!?
Happiness comes in small doses folks. It's a cigarette, or a chocolate
cookie, or a five second orgasm. That's it, ok! You cum, you eat the
cookie, you smoke the butt, you go to sleep, you get up in the morning
and go to fucking work, ok!? That is it! End of fucking list! "I'm just
not happy." Shut the fuck up, allright? That's the name of my new book,
"Shut the Fuck Up, by Doctor Denis Leary. A revolutionary new form of
therapy." I'm gonna have my patients come in. "Doctor, I.." "Shut the
fuck up, next!" "I don't feel so.." "Shut the fuck up, next!" "He made
me feel so much better about myself, you know? He just told me to shut
the fuck up and nobody had ever told me that before. I feel so much
better now." Whining fucking maggots.
