We can stop anytime we like!*

Mutterings continued.

* Dr Who and chocolate mini muffins excluded.

Home made pea and ham soup and crusty bread from L and R and chocolate mini muffins from me. After reading the review on floppy woppy baking products in Choice, I bought a silicon muffin tray made by Wiltshire and used it for the first time yesterday. It worked really well and didn't set the smoke alarm off (I'd been warned by L and R that theirs tends to do this) - the smoke alarm not having any batteries may have something to do with this. Ahem.

Great night's viewing: started with Fruits Basket, a rather sweet, and highly amusing, 13 parter based on the signs of the zodiak. This is moi: "Year of the Rooster

1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005

People born in the Year of the Rooster are deep thinkers, capable, and talented. They like to be busy and are devoted beyond their capabilities and are deeply disappointed if they fail. Roosters are often a bit eccentric, and often have rather difficult relationship with others. They always think they are right and usually are! They frequently are loners and though they give the outward impression of being adventurous, they are timid. Rooster people's emotions like their fortunes, swing very high to very low. They can be selfish and too outspoken, but are always interesting and can be extremely brave." So there you go.

We then watched the second of the Arthur Dales (Darren McGavin) episodes of X Files, Agua Mala. It was rather creepy and I think L and R enjoyed it. I think next week we'll watch The Unnatural, another Arthur Dales story.

Dr Who Spoilers:

This was followed by Dr "We can stop any time we like" Who, a real good 'un starring the Cybermen (cyberpeople, really, as some of them were women). Funny in parts, tragic in others and I knew what was going to happen to Mickey.

And we rounded out the night's viewing with MST3K 's the Sword and the Dragon. Hai-keeba!

that threaten life on a global scale, and,
sometimes, they spill..." -Dr. Forrester.
