An Antidote to….

…Pottermania, from the ever acerbic Clive James.

And now for something absolutely delightful. This simply beautiful piece of software: Delicious Library should remind all of those Windows naysayers and drones why ‘MacMania’ is perfectly justifiable. And, if that isn’t convincing enough, try this. Is MacEnvy setting in yet?

Spin, Spin, Spin

Any coincidence that this blogger and every daily mail reviewer are gushing, simply gushing over the latest Harry Potter? Mutual mirrors – 100% Spin, 0% Substance.

And no, I’m not an old misery who doesn’t appreciate magic – as I said The Worst Witch totally rocks. Go Mildred! I’m off to reread The Magic Faraway Tree.

I tend to be able to detach myself from all this mass hysteria. It’s like everyone’s been swept away by some tsunami and I am left stranded on the shore. Kind of scary. By the way, I didn’t really ‘get’ the ‘Diana’ thing either. I know – I must have a heart of granite. Even the priest in the confessional expressed astonishment when I told him that. ‘B…b..but she’s a saint,’* he spluttered. Is there something wrong with me? Or is it the rest of the world?

*Just kidding.

OMGWTF? My neighbour, Doug, bought me a copy of Deathly Hallows. I guess I’ll have to read it then.

Entropy- everything disintegrating around me. Notable events of the last week – bought myself a PSP – a sleek, black PSP (I can’t work out why anyone would want a white one). Currently playing Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Mother visited over the weekend – she bought me a new double bed as an early birthday present. And the debts keep accumulating. I am very behind on my IT course – I am stuck. I don’t feel as though I can (or even want to) carry on.
