Repelling the Scots
rathergood.com won a webby (or possibly two, I haven't quite worked it out yet), which seems like a good excuse to point people in the direction of the video for winners , new song by 7 seconds of love as guitared by the GW office's own Patrick. He lives on a houseboat, you know. And the online Guardian and bbc news got one each as well, so we can be gently proud of our nation this morning. I'm sure something'll go wrong by the afternoon though.
Gorgoeous pouting Ori will soon be gazing seductively into your living rooms, when her and Fay and the other two Bearded Ladies have their comedy lab broadcast as per this missive:
SPEEDING is going out on Channel 4 on May 11th at 11.30 pm (that's next Wednesday). So remember to set your video or stay up late. That way you will get to see Oriane playing a competetive woman with no sexual memory and Fay as a tactless woman who's worried she'll catch blindness.

So,while my friends have been clambering on monuments, being in bands and making comedy pilots, I have discovered a number of new white hairs in my vague goatee/beard thing. I only really shave for meetings, so I've gone all scruffy again. For a while I had a vampire goatee (it didn't show up in photos), and now I have a lopsided greying one. I'm hoping the wisdom will arrive any day now.
I have got some glass-fronted bookshelves though, which has always been a dream of mine. Unfortunately, my room isn't that big, so I've had to put them across the bottom half of my window, thus cutting off half the light, and it's starting to feel like I'm sleeping in a small, but rather crampled* library.
But mmm, glass-fronted bookshelves...
*I was going to correct my spelling here, but I quite like 'crampled', which suggests both 'cramped' and 'rumpled'. And possibly 'crampons', so we get the height thing in as well. Today I Made A Word.
Yesterday I came across 'havering', which is a Scottish word meaning 'blather' but which people tend to take as meaning 'vacillate' because of its suggestion of simultaneous 'hovering' and 'wavering'. But it doesn't. It means 'blather'.
