Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Some of you who have invited me to Facebook may find yourselves suddenly in receipt of an invitiation to be my friend, even though I may have refused yours to me. Please don't be offended.

I was forced to sign up in an attempt to find someone I was looking for - the woman whose cat my dear Shelley started life belonging to, along with his darling late brother Byron.

Don't feel you have to do anything. I will probably never visit Facebook again (don't have the time).

Pop over to Projects

I've posted the latest two trailers on Jazzy's blog ( One was on TheReel and the other on Music Wench's blog.

hey, music Wnech, I wish you'd let us comment. I feel as if you are part of our community but simultaneously outside it.

Still Missing

The missing opening episodes of Season 5 are still missing, so we're on to ITWSH already. In two parts. of course.

Very Handy

Photobucket (see how polite I'm being) has solved my technical woes, and here, at the third time of trying, is the slideshow I've been trying to make since Wednesday.

Mmm. DrowseyMonkey ( wants me to post six quirky things about myself. I'm a pretty quirky person, so here goes:

1. I am a bit OCD about things matching. Even my undies have to be the right colour to match my outfit, though happily they can't be seen.
2. I think I deserve at least one treat a week to reward me for working hard. unfortunately, as I can't afford expensive things, I buy pleasing food treats, like cream cakes. I am therefore growing out of the clothes I treat myself to when I can afford them.
3. I count things. Steps especially. I can walk downstairs in the dark. It's a bit unfortunate when I forget I left something on the stairs...
4. I talk to myself and to the animals a lot. And I make what I say rhyme. I find it very satisfying.
5. I have several hundred books waiting to be read (too busy blogging to read them) but when I see another that I think might be good, I buy it and add it to the pile. The books on the bottom never get to the top.
6. I have a lot of umbrellas. I hate umbrellas. I go out without them even when rain is threatening, and when I get too wet I have to buy another one. Eventually I give the nicest ones away to my friend, who loves umbrellas.

Now I have to tag 6 of you (forgive me). Don't feel obliged.

Here are the Rules:
1. Link the person(s) who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

I never remember how to do links as I don't do them all that often, so I will just have to post the URLs of the people I've tagged.

Jazzy and Lozzie as 2)

New Toy

Thanks to Eliza I have a new toy to play with when Botophucket is down. Here's my first effort.

Wednesday, June 04, 2008



I made a slideshow this evening, but when I tried to save it, it wouldn't save. I tried to start again, but Phucket was gone.

So I am just going to post a few of Maledictus from my hard drive, and hope that Phucket un-phucks soon.

Clever Boy

Henry has a habit of transferring his food from the pot I give it to him in, to one that he finds more convenient. That's what he did this morning.

Can't quite see it?

What about now?
Yes, he has put his walnut exactly in the middle of his half a passion fruit.

Notice the pomegranate, grapes and sugarsnap peas? That's not the half of it. My parrots eat better than me!

Suite But No Sorrow

I forgot I'd made this slideshow. So many gorgeous shots of such a gorgeous man.

I give up!

Last night Hallmark - if you believed the listings - was supposed to start Season 5 with, well, the start of Season 5.

But instead of Grow, they showed Prisoner!

Any offers of a reason why? No use emailing them, they don't understand the technology, any more than they understand how to announce the progamme about to start (they often announce the one that just finished - doh!) among other amateurish booobs they regularly make. Still, they do bring us LOTS of Bobby, and their spin-offs, Movies 24 and Diva have been know to show the odd VDO movie...:)

Anyone else feel like tying him to a fence or - something else...

I want to tug on that shirt-tail.

Stubble neck AND chest hair! I think it's the most they've ever let us see.

Dr Stern, I have this itch that only you can scratch.

If I had Bobby caged, I'd make sure he never wanted to get out.
