Don't tell me the score...and other ramblings
I'm snatching a few moments online to update my blog, but in the process I'm anxious not to go anywhere near my usual online news sources where there's a danger I might see the football scores. This is because City were playing Liverpool this afternoon, and tonight I want to watch Match of The Day 2 without knowing the result...it makes it so much more exciting. Reminds me of the edisode of the Likely Lads (a BBC comedy from the early 1970s) where they try to avoid hearing the result of an England game (see here).
Today I had my first encounter with the Asus eee PC, which I've mentioned here before. It's a tiny thing - I think the technical term is a 'subnotebook' - that's cheap (£200) and amazingly fast to boot up, because it doesn't have a hard drive. I had a quick go on the keyboard, which seems functional enough. I made a few mistakes typing at normal speed, but I reckon you'd get used to it pretty fast, as long as you don't have big sausage fingers. I think I'd like one, just because it's so portable and convenient.
Had a nice walk at Virginia Water this afternoon with the kids and RTL. We met a Golden Poo - a cross between a Golden Retriever and a poodle. He looked like a hairier, larger version of RTL. Gorgeous dog, and with a scarily similar behaviour pattern to RTL (very playful, full of energy, likes jumping up...you get the picture).
Tried the Graillot today, and it was horrible. Went down the sink. Now what shall I drink tonight?
