Are you comfortably numb?

Disturbingly, I'm beginning to like Norah Jones...

...yes, my taste in music has indeed been tinged by a fragment of what we would call 'middle of the road'. Tom would argue that it is irredeemably immersed in it, in fact drowned, never to return to obscurity or indeed the avoidance of all mainstream music that his taste represents.

Anyway... I'm feeling in fairly good spirits at the moment. My cold is still with me, which is well annoying. I'm working tonight so beware customers... that isn't extra sauce on your meals. Actually that's quite disgusting. I'm joking. No really, I AM.

I've just received an email from the good people at 'cheap viagra'. They keep offering the stuff to me. When will they learn? The cheap stuff is far too tacky for me

I've finally managed to get properly into 'Christians in a Consumer Culture' by John Benton! My experience of this book in previous times has been something I'm sure you can relate to. You know, you pick up a book, thinking 'I'll read it to the end this time', and somehow there's an invisible, yet very powerful, force, preventing you from getting past page 30. I've done that at least 4 times with this book, and yet this time the force has been broken. Makes for a very challenging read, but Benton is neither judgmental nor self-righteous. I recommend it to anyone - just bear in mind you'll have to start reading it at least 3 or 4 times! So having spent most of the day reading half of that, I promptly went on Amazon.co.uk and spent a lot of money on some long-wanted DVDs and CDs. They were very cheap for what they were though! ;)

Well I'd better go, I must prepare the evening meal for moi and young Thomas.

Am looking forward to the women's conference tomorrow, will let you know how it goes!!!
