Charlotte Coleman - Bad Girl Warning


...huntingospray is unwell today - well, she's been a bit under the weather with tummy troubles since the weekend, on and off, but it's "on" today. Plans for visiting multiclassgeek and zoeiona for their NYECon have bitten the dust, although Sarah and I have a vague plan that we'll get together at around midnight and see in the new year courtesy of the fireworks from London on t'telly.

Am now watching one of my birthday presents (or was it Christmas? I genuinely forget) - the DVD of Educating Marmalade, specifically Marmalade Atkins in Space. Wonderfully nostalgic...

ETA: Travelling into space in a VW Camper van with a nodding dog for company...I'd forgotten how much this appealed to me!

ETA 2: And of course, the late John Fortune in Educating Marmalade itself...

ETA 3: Appropriate userpic is appropriate... :-)

Settling down... watch tonight's Christmas University Challenge (which I recorded earlier), and...I never knew Rory Bremner was a translator. However, he was - says so there on his Wiki entry. Translated three operas, apparently. Clearly a talented guy in many respects.

(I'll be supporting his team. Nobody is allowed to spoil me for the result in the next 20 minutes or so..!)
