Goodbye David

I know I've been slack again lately (I may yet go into the possible reasons why) but I couldn't let last night's surprise announcement go by unmarked.
David Tennant used his live award acceptance speech at the National Television Awards last night to confirm he was leaving the "Doctor Who" role after the 2009 specials.
So technically it's not goodbye until Christmas 2009 (or perhaps New Year 2010).
He'll be a hard act to follow - for many he IS the Doctor, though I wouldn't go quite that far.
Speculation has been feverish about who'll be the 11th Doctor - might it even be 'The Next Doctor" - David Morrissey - or is that a red herring in a bluff or whatever tease RTD has in mind?
Of the names I've seen paraded on the forums I favour Julian Rhind-Tutt, last spotted as baddie of the week in "Merlin" last Saturday but best known for "Green Wing" and the Barclaycard ads.

Fantasy Oil Wrestling 7 - ADULTS ONLY

It has come to my attention that I haven't posted any porn in over 6 weeks - so here is some gay grappling.

Boyzone x 3 - Love You Anyway

This post is dedicated to Lee and Nigel.

First up is the official video for their comeback single, which entered the top ten singles last Sunday. Really like the sound of this - as many have pointed out it has a 'glam rock' vibe, specifically Wizzard I think.

Next the band are introduced by Joan Rivers and Vernon Kay on ITV's "For One Night Only" in mid-September. Atmospheric live performance for an enthusiastic audience.

And I just HAD to include this slashy slant, featuring mucho Captain Jack/Ianto liplocking.

The Economic Crisis Hits Home

While I was back at Meldrum Court I felt the chill of the economic downturn. Though I've been vaguely aware that it's been difficult to bag a loaf of bread for under a pound over the course of the last year, this example really hit home.

One day I was able to buy my litre bottle of "Diamond White" from the local corner shop for the usual £2.49 it's been for more years than I can accurately recall. The next day, the same product was marked up as £2.75!!!! Both are less than Asda obliges me to pay (it's gone up there to £2.98) but that's still an overnight increase of more than 10%.

One consolation is that the 500ml cans of the stuff are still going for the usual 79p there, but other locals have them at 85p. Asda have the 440ml cans at a ridiculous £1.83 per can. There's no point buying less than 4 there.

The Lost Month

Much apologies for those who thought I'd died (though you'd obviously missed my additions on the right) which I don't really have any great excuse for. Probably wound down a bit too much on my two weeks leave in September, which was immediately followed by an uneventful 44th birthday and the start of 3 weeks of Dad-sitting at Meldrum Court, where I squatted in my youngest nephews room while he and the rest of the clan holidayed in Orlando.

But today I'm back at the flat and thought I'd make amends, though I almost posted last weekend (but my wi-fi dongle ran out of credit).

Aberdour Road, Sunday 5 October (note insect swarms under the trees)
Most of my free time online was spent downloading porn from or downloading tracks and podcasts from iTunes. I've only started an iTunes account as from last month so I've got a bit of catching up to do.

I've also bought a new mobile handset - a Motorola W377. It's the first one I've had with FM radio on it. It was technically only £25, but the Carphone Warehouse deal insisted on £20 credit on a new number, so it was £45 on the day. Thus I'm on two numbers currently while I 'drain' the £20 credit from the new number in the new handset. I'll return to my usual number when that's done, and put the old SIM in the new phone. Bit awkward though.

My three handsets. One Samsung (currently in use with my 'old' number but out of credit for outgoing calls), and two Motorolas. The middle one is my handset before last, but it developed a speaker fault in the spring - rather fatal for voice calls. The new handset (currently running on a new SIM and number until the £20 credit runs out) is the bottom right one.
