Random book i found in a charity shop. It was... weird. Enjoyable, easy read, just... weird. Taxi driver doing the night shift goes a bit loopy. The author used to be a taxi driver, and all but one of the taxi stories told in the book actually happened to him. The whole taxi aspect was the most interesting to me, for some reason. The whole 'Thirteen' part is ... weird.
On a train heading north. Nothing but white.
BeardyMan and i had planned to do some gardening at the weekend. We decided to do some safe, indoor garden designing instead.
On the plus side, our street looked pretty.
My third Brookmyre. ...I missed Parlabane, and the one Scottish character wasn't in it enough. Very enjoyable though. Many many laugh-out-loud moments, as usual. The religious stuff, though perfectly taken the piss out of, annoyed my atheism sometimes. And i was shocked to learn that Brookmyre had to cut 20,000 words before the book was publish because he went on a little too long about the Minoans.
I had been meaning to go to the Lowry exhibit at Nottingham University for the last month, but kept forgetting. Thankfully i remembered yesterday.
I had more fun at the Lowry exhibit in Sunderland yeeeeeears ago, but that was because no one in Sunderland gave a crap and the place was empty.
While waiting for the exhibit to open BeardyMan and i enjoyed a bloody expensive snack at one of the university cafes. £6.35 for two drinks, a bag of crisps, a banana and a chocolate bar? Eff off.
A Lord of the Flies reference in the book i'm reading straight after finishing Lord of the Flies.
This pleases me far more than it ought to.
Thankfully i still don't own a TV, but am in full possession of my soul.
