Dolmio, Apr 2006

They say that time only appears to accelerate as you age. Dunno what happened to last month since it's already time for another end-of-month Dolmio (Doings Of Last Month Innoparticular Order) round up.

That is to say, an attempt to capture past(a) events before they slip... my... mind. April 2006 was spent:

  • goggling at the meteor shower and the scary droid ("Your robot is defective") in the great fun Zathura
  • Dr Who 1: scavenging for promotional DVDs given away with The Soaraway Sun: many thanks to the Martlesham Heath newsagents
  • Dr Who 2: anticipating the fortnightly new edition of Doctor Who Adventures: got stationery set and Slitheen whoopee cushion so far
  • Dr Who 3: finding the Peter Cushing 1965 Doctor Who & The Daleks a tad lacklustre
  • working on a new website for a local cycle shop: know anything about wheelbuilding?
  • managing the odd frighteningly early night (though not tonight)
  • admiring Douglas Coupland's eye for a phrase in Eleanor Rigby
  • listening to the sounds of 20 years ago, esp. Prefab Sprout's Steve McQueen and The Pogues' Rum, Sodomy and the Lash
  • switching to flax seed oil for my Omega-3 but still struggling to swallow
  • transfixed by more mini aeroplanes, rocking horses and shadowy creatures from Hiraki Sawa at Colchester's The Minories
  • not having enough cash for a milkshake at Sainsbury's caff
  • progressing from Sudocrem to Diprobase for the skin treatment
  • opting for Danny Baker's Radio London show on the BBC Radio Player
  • baffled by too many buttons on shiny new Nokia mobile phone

And that was April 2006.
