Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Plan for tonight.

I'm jolly well going to make some progress with Nation. I don't know why, but I'm finding it a real chore to get through, which is unusual for a Pratchett book (but then, it is rather unusual for a Pratchett book). If I can at least get to about page 250 tonight (I'm on 180 at the moment), that'll be a bit of progress. Soon as I've done with Nation, I'm going to get on with A Madness of Angels.

(I like Tim's idea that in an alternative universe, Terry Nation might have written a book called Pratchett. Um. D'y'see what he did there..?)

Somewhere in various boxes, I've got the Tiffany Aching books, and there's a fourth one due out in September. Fiver says I can't dig my copies up before we move house, though. They're just...somewhere.

Also tonight, it'd be kind of nice to watch last night's Identity. Mind you, no hurry - I've still not got round to watching Lennon Naked yet.
Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Tuesday 6th July 2010


Really can't remember much about today. Went to work. Listened to Queen on the way there - the "Complete Singles" collection that I compiled a while back; I'd thought it wasn't on my iPod, but it turned out it was, so I started with Don't Stop Me Now, which I'd had going through my brain and fancied listening to, and went on from there. Blogged when I got to The Invisible Man, a humourous-ish comment about the old "no synthesizers were used in the making of this record". Came home. Had dinner that Rita cooked - can't remember what it was, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't mackerel. And tonight I made a bit of progress with Nation, which I've been finding a bit of a chore, frankly - not (IMO) up to Terry's usual standards, and taking really ages to get going into anything vaguely resembling a plot. Still, I made it from about page 180 to about page 240 tonight, which is a start.
