Last night

Had a very pleasant evening - left work a bit early, popped into London, met Sarah (very briefly) and [livejournal.com profile] avonette, to whom I gave a slashzine which is useful research for her PhD and also contains much B7-related slashy goodness. We had a bite to eat at Pizza Hut on Piccadilly Circus before retiring to her place for drinks and more slash chat and watching B7 vids on Youtube. 'Twas a bit of a mini-slashbash, and great fun.

[livejournal.com profile] avonette mentioned the Festival of Venice, which a.) put me in mind of Rondo Veneziano (and I managed to dig up the vid for La Serenissima on Youtube, which was rather joyous as I've not seen it since...ooh, about 1983); and b.) reminded me of the fact that Venice is one of Those Places that I'd love to take Sarah to (that's "take her to" as opposed to just "go to with her") - others include Prague for Christmas markets and a Welsh Six Nations match at the Millennium Stadium.

One day.

Speaking of Sarah, her back problems have flared up rather nastily - prayers and general good vibes would be highly appreciated.

I got home from [livejournal.com profile] avonette's rather late last night, and am now knackered. Despite that, the plan for tonight is: driving lesson after work, then to mum's for fish and chips, and then out to a quiz at the local grammar school. Looking forward to that. Less looking forward to not seeing the last episode of Torchwood as it goes out. I mean, yes, Tim and I'll be taping it, and probably watching it as soon as we get home, but it's not the same.

And I gather there's something to look forward to on the tellybox tomorrow evening. Can't think what... *g*

...at the Blake's 7 panel yesterday, Jim Swallow confirmed that there are moves afoot for a new TV series - a retooling/reboot rather than a continuation (a la BSG, but with a footnote to the effect that you can't really get much darker than the original B7; I disagree with that somewhat, but hey ho), possibly - depending on availability - involving some of the cast from the recent audio reworking (which I must check out).

Sounds exciting.

Whether you celebrate Easter as a Christian festival, a Pagan festival, a chance to eat lots of chocolate eggs, something else, or a combination of the above, Happy Easter!

EasterCon continues to be enjoyable - this morning I went to the Easter morning service, followed by the Bad Blake's 7 Slash panel (huge fun and much laughter all round) and a discussion that started off as "Is Sam Tyler really the Master" but ended up being a pretty general discussion on Doctor Who, Life on Mars, Torchwood, and some random Primeval (which I must watch 'cos I get the impression I'd really enjoy it).

Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes thought - Possibly a bit spoilery )

Debating whether to buy a Beeblebear.

Next weekend Sarah and I will be visiting her family (and of course our new nephew). Weekend after that the new Doctor Who starts - much yayness. Sadly the househunting has stalled a bit, as we still need to someone to put down an offer on Sarah's house before we can put down an offer on anywhere in Letchworth.

Is it me or has Google's front page changed?

Oh well - off for K-9 agility. Should be fun!

David.
