Yay - shiny new iPod touch - a white one...

Very happy. Will be able to read all my eBooks again. Happy days.

According to this odd online calculator I found, if I want to wake up refreshed and not tired at 7am, I need to fall asleep at exactly 0.10am. That's in exactly 1 hours and 1 minute. Wish me luck.

Home sick today - watched 'The Kids Are Alright', 'Jane Eyre' and just about to start 'Weekend' - hope I feel better tomorrow - don't have any more sick days.

Poetry rocks  
We had National Poetry Day this Friday gone and arranged for everyone in the office to read out a poem. I really wanted to read Richard Siken's 'Little Beast' )

but I was totally unsure of the reaction I'd get - everyone else seemed to go quite tame; Tuwhare, Jabberwocky, Keats - all great but definitely lacking even the suggestion of edge. I debated right up to my reading time and - predictably - chickened out and went with Poe's 'Annabel Lee'.

On the up side - everyone enjoyed doing a reading so much, we're going to have 'poetry afternoon' every Friday - and I will be brave with the Siken next week.

Also - rather enjoyed the opening ceremony. But then you generally can't go wrong when you have the Sex Pistols, Voldemort and James bond in a gigantic mash-up spectacular.

Yikes. Just signed up for kink bingo. Haven't written a thing for months so I'm a bit nervous - then again - this could be just the thing to get back into it. Can't wait to see my card. It's here :)
