Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Exciting news

Those of you who are on Sarah's Flist may already have seen her good news, but for those of you who aren't or haven't, allow me to bounce a bit and inform you that Sarah has sold her house. To make matters even more exciting, a place in Letchworth which we really loved when we saw it back in February is still on the market, and Sarah's put in an offer. So hopefully, Sarah could be moving into our marital home within the next month or two (the plan is that I'll move most of my stuff in over the course of the next year or so, and move in myself about a month before the wedding). If nothing ends up going wrong. Touch wood, cross fingers, and pray & hope for the best!

David.

Books

As much for my own interest as anything else, but what the heck, I see no reason not to make this a public post.

Books I've read (or at least finished reading) this year):

Making Money - Terry Pratchett
Blind Faith - Ben Elton
Sepulchre - Kate Mosse
American Gods - Neil Gaiman (only started last Friday, and I'm already 400 pages in)

Books I'm planning on reading in the next few weeks/months:

Anansi Boys - Neil Gaiman
McCarthy's Bar - Pete McCarthy
America Unchained - Dave Gorman
Double or Die - Charlie Higson
Hurricane Gold - Charlie Higson
Devil May Care - Sebastian Faulks

After that, it's a bit vague...I've got quite a stack (in fact several stacks) of books waiting to be read, and although I've no real desire to add to them, it's quite a challenge for me to go into a bookshop and not buy something new! I've got Wintersmith but not The Wee Free Men or A Hat Full of Sky, so I might buy those two so that I can read all three; similarly I've got The Devil in Amber but not The Vesuvius Club and might pick up TVC just so I can read the two. (Isn't Gatiss meant to be writing a third book in the series? And does anyone know what's happening with the TV adaptation that was reported about a year back?)

And after then, who knows. This LJ was never to meant to be a reading blog, but I suspect that I'll post reviews of the books I read as I read them, just to keep me vaguely active.

Bleurgh

Feeling positively shattered. Going to have dinner and then either veg out or just plain go to bed.

I have, though, bought tickets for Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf, which is playing at the Chelmsford Cramphorn Theatre in a couple of weeks time. Can I just thoroughly utterly recommend it to anyone out there who likes a.) Doctor Who, b.) a good night of comedy, or c.) both. It really is a wonderful evening's entertainment, very very funny and very very touching and more than a little bit geeky in a very very good way, and if you get the chance to go and see it then go, and I promise you won't regret it even if you aren't a Doctor Who fan.

(I'm going with Tim and Sarah.)

Now food.
