Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Oh, well *that's* not very exciting.

Depending on where one lives, the second wedding anniversary is either paper (UK) or cotton (US),. As Sarah and I are definitely in the UK, that makes ours (next Monday!) paper.

As it is, we're probably not going to do anything specifically for it until some time in October (we've discussed the possibility of a trip in the London Eye, which sounds like a nice idea - I've been up there before, many years ago, but Sarah's never been). Although there's a fish and chip supper at our church on Saturday the 24th. We can pretend that's an anniversary-ish night out.

Speaking of church, got a call from one of the worship leaders there who was preparing this Sunday (just gone)'s service, asking me if I could play the keyboard for the service. As that's something I've not done for a good many years, it was a bit nervewracking, but I coped okay - thanks in large part to Sarah. Thanks also to the fact that the church has a darned nice keyboard. I, erm, may have asked Sarah if, when she gets her bonus this year, she might possibly maybe think about treating me to one. But having just seen the price, it's doubtful! Still, I can dream...

Of course...

...I did get Sarah this a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't technically intended as an anniversary present, but it is made of paper (amongst other things), and she seemed to appreciate it (even if it has been lying in a Waterstone's bag on the bedroom floor since purchase)...
Pooh - bear of very little brain

That could have been embarrassing...

Whilst compiling our "every number one ever" thingy, I found myself idly wondering if (or indeed assuming that) the artist known as Nelly was simply Nelly Furtado by a shorter name.

A simple trip to Wikipedia assured me that they are, in fact, two entirely different people. However, with the name "Nelly" now firmly lodged in my mind, I give you this classic from the Toy Dolls (who I'm delighted to see are still going strong, despite having had possibly more drummers than Spınal Tap, albeit none who've died in bizarre gardening accidents as far as I can tell). Just because.
