Reading

I'm about to leave the computer and do some reading. I'm nearly a third of the way through the book I should have read in February to meet my target. To put this in perspective, the book IS over 900 well filled pages, but I definitely have some catching up to do.

I'd have started earlier this evening but I had to do the shopping. After the spectacular failure of the attempted joke previously, the shopping contains nothing unusual this time around.

Wanna know why there are no spoilers about the Lord of the Rings film in here? It's because we haven't seen it. Not for want of trying. However, it turns out to be a bad idea to go and see the most popular film around on its opening weekend when that weekend is also the weekend before Christmas. Two cinemas showing the film more regularly than hourly and we still couldn't get in. Oh well.

I'm feeling terribly inadequate already, anyway, not having read the books. I'm sure several people I know would be aghast to discover this, so don't tell 'em I said anything.

Chances are I won't be around much online until after Christmas now, so have a good one, merry, happy, joyous etc etc

Official

I've just been looking at my copy of The Official Big Brother 2 Book that I had for my birthday (I make no shameful secret of actually liking Big Brother and can offer a long explanation as to why if anyone's interested). It's reminded me of what "official" means in so many instances. It means "money spinner", it means "gushing praise", it means "inside information you won't find elsewhere so if you're interested you'll buy it". It means inaccuracies because, hey, who cares once the sale is made? It means an individual viewpoint offered as though it were objective fact and it means you have to read between the lines to get the real story.

I'm going back to "Are You Dave Gorman?" until I'm ready to approach BB2 with all that in mind so it doesn't put me off getting to the information between the space-filling gush. *shudder*
