House-hunting continues. Today's oddity: a kitchen painted black. (Cue the Rolling Stones.) We could fill it with black appliances and have a goth kitchen.
Nearly 3 months back, I posted about submitting a storyline for Chain Gang
, BBC7's collaborative storytelling project. The final episode
aired today, and came to a remarkably satisfying conclusion. (Featuring a cameo by writer robshearman
himself, as a train commuter who doesn't much like books. I laughed out loud!) The whole thing will be aired as one continuous story next Saturday, Dec. 26th. I'll be curious to see whether it makes more or less sense when you hear it all in one go.
Speaking of things that I listen to on BBC Radio, the most recent episode of The Now Show
has a bit by Marcus Brigstocke explaining the Copenhagen climate summit as if it's a story by Dr. Seuss. It is the funniest thing I've heard in a long time. Have a listen - it should be available online until next Friday.
