Tomorrow I go to Peterborough to hand over vast sums of cash and sign a contract. The contract will then be held on file until such time as an exchange date is arranged. I'm only a couple of steps away from being a home owner. Of course, it could take quite some time to complete, but it's happening. I should probably start organising some of my belongings. Packing the summer clothes, collecting boxes for further packing. That sort of thing. Plus, of course, there's the unpleasant bit yet to come - the bit where we try to decide who gets what out of the shared items. Not that I'm really in any state to do that this weekend. Saturday will be taken up by the contract signing (more so by the travel to and from, but still...) and then Sunday I'll be catching up on a combination of sleep and missed TV. I've got new Buffy & Angel to watch from Beth, plus ER, Dark Angel and Frasier from while I was away. Life's just packed with excitement, eh?

Sleep

hawkida: (Default)
I really am useless when it comes to trying to sleep sensibly. Friday night I slept from around midnight to six thirty - an average workday type night. Which would have been fine, except that I really had some catching up to do. I spent Saturday in London, got home at around 10pm and messed around online until midnight at which point I went to bed and woke up at 6.30am. And 7am. And 8.30am. And 9am. And then I thought "Sod this" and got up.

So, although it was interrupted, that was a decent sleep that should have set me back on track for the week ahead. And what did I do? I stayed up until 2am chatting online, knowing perfectly well that I had to get up at 6.30 this morning. So now I'm tired again and I didn't sort out the software on the laptop ready for Corflu, so that still needs doing and there's Friends to watch on video and Dark Angel is on tonight and I'm all set up for another late night, despite my better intentions.

And there's also the small matter of the eye test today. I'm getting quite concerned about my vision. Everything is fine apart from the computer screen. And on tired days the computer screen is noticably blurry looking. And let's face it, they're all tired days, really, aren't they?

Official

hawkida: (Default)
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*
