There is no need to leave the site on my behalf. I have just posted a diary.
Amazon panic sweeps country!
I bought Girls Aloud's new single Whole Lotta History on Amazon - the song itself is a ballad, and indeed one which I already own because it's on the album. But the B-side sounds good, so I decided to buy it at the weekend.
When I checked my email today, I saw it recommending Whole Lotta History CD 2 - this surprised me as I thought that's what I had ordered in order to get the B-side rather than the remixes.
Well, after looking it up, it turns out that CD 1 is the one with the B-Side, and I'd just got muddled. Panic over - I will call Downing street and tell them they can all stand down.
Glad you like the ZZ Top entry, thanks. I will get round to submitting my Waits entry eventually, I promise. I fear I may be lynched, though: my first thoughts on hearing "In the neighbourhood" were "Hmm...If this had some synth pads, and sped up a lot, this could be quite Pet Shop Boys".
So that's what I'm aiming for: 80's synth-pop in 3/4 time.
Can't remember in detail what happened in House. The patient turned out to have Munchhausen's (plus usual House twists), but I don't recall any major changes that will knock-on. Cuddy had implied to Black Guy (who, if you recall, was put in charge for a few weeks) that he may end up getting the position permanently, but eventually it turned out she was only saying that to stop him quitting.
As I mentioned elsewhere, if you want to do inline SVG in Firefox, it has to be an XML document. This is suboptimal if your codebase is not XHTML, and furthermore element positioning relies on the behaviour of old-skool HTML rendering.
Went to see them on the opening night of their tour at the City Hall. They were really good. Really good. They even did Run for Cover which is one of my favourite songs of theirs. Being from the first album (and not being Overload) I'm amazed they performed it - this seemed to go for the rest of the crowd who stood around looking confused, while a select few of us got excited and drunkenly sang along and danced like buffoons.
Girls Aloud 2 - Larry and Richard are back, and this time... they're not fooling around!
Going to see them on May 23rd. I am really rather excited.
I have been persuaded to see it at Ponds Forge tomorrow. I have no idea why I agreed to go, but a carefully orchestrated drinking session beforehand could make it more passable.
Oh wait, I remember, it's because there were rumours that Carol Decker might be involved (since squashed). Not Carol Decker, she's not squashed. Alive, kicking, and serving Captain Archer, if I recall correctly.
