Dear God, the Jewel of the Nile is an awful movie.

Managed to avoid just about every mention of Diana. It really sucks sharing an anniversary with that event. Still, it does mean I never forget it. Not that I would, of course… MY anniversary I mean…

Billie Piper, her wot was in Doctor Who, is set to play Belle de Jour on TV. Yes, THAT Belle de Jour. How come she hasn’t been outed yet? Is there some level of acceptance of her ‘exploits’ because she is a prostitute? Does the ‘profession’ mean it’s sort of OK, but if you are a natural woman who enjoys sex, that’s bad and evil? Double standards anyone?

Big Brother is finished. Thank feck. A fan from previous years, this year grated on me more than normal.

I may need to start saving for another Mac. Everytime I go to use it SOMEONE is using it.

There is something satisfying about washing a car, something almost sensual and erotic. Soapy sponge, running over the sleek curves. Most odd. Am I a pervert?

I have never seen all of the movie BeetleJuice so I don’t understand why it’s not called Betelgeuse…

Hang on, can I install OSX on my Dell box? Dual boot maybe?

Is Twitter killing blogging? 😉

Non-plussed.

Funny bits weren’t that funny.

Dramatic bits weren’t that dramatic.

The rest was a bit bland. Considering the competition, largely American I have to admit and largely post-watershed, this felt a little light and almost too fast-paced for it’s own good. Not sure what Christopher Eccleston was aiming for, but if it was “slightly weird in a slightly scary kinda way” then he nailed it but at the expense of looking like he was hamming it up, which is a shame because I think he is an excellent actor. Billie Piper was OK.

I’ll give it another couple of weeks but not a great return for Dr.Who.

Oh yes, I should mention that I rarely watched any of the originals, the odd episode here and there, hence the lack of fanboy excitement and gushing praise for something which was, at worst, mediocre TV.
